I still have my N64 and Dreamcast. But only use the Dreamcast

Soul Caliber

The Xbox rules, there is no use for any other consoles (except Dreamcast)

I started a loooooonnnnggg time ago..Still have my Atari gathering dust in a closet somewhere.. NES for my little cousins because of Duck Hunt....Super NES which I keep just because of Metroid...N64 for Turok, Donkey Kong and GoldenEye..Now XBox for Halo, PGR and Max Payne...I never get rid of an old system because one never knows when the urge will strike to play one of the "classics"....

BDHES :cool:

I've only got my Dreamcast. Sad to see it die but because of that I got an Xbox so maybe I am happy. :confused: Anyways I still play Dreamcast. I play NFL2k2, Tennis2k2, NBA2k2 and World Series Baseball 2k2. Yeah I've almost got the whole 2k2 set.

Well I started with good'ol NES, than I got a Sega Genesis, than a Playstation and now the XBOX. When I bought PS1 I only played it for a combined total of 50 hours in 2 years, after I sold it I never thought I would buy a video game system again. Until the 16th of November when I walked in to Future Shop and saw Halo on a 63 inch HDTV with Surround. All I said to myself was WOW. Bought it on the spot with no hesitation.

I never did get an Atari, but my parents bought me an Intellivision for Christmas one year. That thing rocked, I can still remember playing games like TRON on it.

After that I got a nintendo (duck hunt and boxing) and kept the Intellivision until the super nintedo's (super mario and starfow)came out.

After I got the super nintendo, I purchased a sega genisis and that blew every other game console away at its time. Kept the sega for a few years upgrading to the 32x, sega cd.

Then the Video game revolution realy began to heat up with nintendo's new N64 (zelda is a game for all time), so I got rid of the super nintendo and the sega for the N64. At the time is was a great choice but, then I heard of the new sega console coming out (the Dreamcast).

I new that having 2 vidoe game conoles in the house wouldn't be that bad. So, I dropped the $299 for a Dreamcast for Xmas the year it came out and OMG!!!! I couldn't belive it, Soul Caliber has sooooo much eye candy and the game play was much better than Mortal Combat on the sega.

The playstation 2 came out the next year and I wasn't sure about it and decided not to splurge.

So I waited patiently for the release of the next generation console, the XBOX. And I would trade every console I own for one of these suckers because you cannot imagine the gameplay and graphics on a game like HALO until you turn up the dolby digital 5.1 and turn down the lights (the flood gave me chills at 3am in the morning).

For now I am an XBOX man, until someone thinks up or comes out with something superior to the XBXO. It will be a very long wait before any does though!

Well ninjababe aka xboxbabe :D

I had (and still do) a Sega Dreamcast with 38 games to this date! My favorite titles for my DC are Soul Calibur, Skies Of Arcadia, Shenmue, & the NFL/NBA 2K series.
Before the DC I owned a Sega Saturn. That's a pretty big gap in between systems, but promised myself never to turn to the dark side and purchase a Sony system. I I never bought a PSOne or PS2.
All the gaming consoles I ever owner are (in order from the 1st to last): NES, Genesis, umm...32X, Saturn, Dreamcast, & now the awesome Xbox.
My first non-Sega system in over a decade!

I've bought and played many games on the pc and judging by the fun and time spent, I'd have to say the favorite of all time on the pc was Starcraft. I played that for about 2 years before calling it quits. hehe

My last console was PS1. My favorite game on there was Tekken 3. I thought it was very well done for its time. I love the fighting system of that game. I seriously hope that Xbox gets Tekken 4 and it blows my mind even more than that game did in its day. :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :p

EDIT: Almost forgot... I've sense given that PS1 and about 40 or more games to my niece. That was the Christmas before this last one. She's been having a blast. I'm making a gamer out of her! mwhahaaaa

Opps, typo! at $199 the dreamcast was expensive (for me) and everone wanted one at that time they were hard to get.

At least I didn't have to buy a bundle with it :)
