What if there was no XBox!!! :eek: What would you do?

And, does anyone remember what they did for entertainment purposes before owning an XBox? If so, what were they...or, perhaps some Aussie's or UK XBAs might be able to remind us what we did :D

The only thing I recall was sweating in anticipation for my XBox...lol...that's what I did!

What are your thoughts in regards to this frightening thread?

Right on man, counterstrike is the only alternative than playing the XBox.

Hmmm. Spend a little more time with my wife. I play Xbox and lately just answer "umm hmm" to what she says. Bad idea, I agreed to watch Martha Stewart for 2 hours in a row and bake cookies with little M&M's in 'em. Guess I'll have to pause my games more a listen up a little.

Actually without the Xbox I might be chasing ghosts around and sucking them up with a vacuum whilst whistling and humming to myself or watching a monkey roll around in a plastic bubble.
I would be forced to own a cute purple little cube with a stylish handle built right in so I can take it to Ronnie's house. (Ronnie is 8 years old with braces, the kind with elastics, and he spits a bit when he talks and loves Star Trek). I think every GC owner has a friend like Ronny. Amen for the Xbox.

Before the XBOX I watched a lot more movies.
If the XBOX never existed I probably would have purchased a Game Cube.

Good question: For one, I'd be playing the REAL Halo on my kick-ass mac, like I was supposed to instead of waiting till Bungie feels like it. Dead or Alive 3 would be a real sequel, and I'd miss out on the splendor that is NFL Fever....:(

But I'd probably still be playing Super Monkey Ball and Madden 2002 with me old college chums even if I didn't have an Xbox. There'd probably be alot more exclusives for GameCube then, but what does it really matter? None of these d@mned consoles are better than an arcade game, anyways....;)

And a note to xboxfan123: I know no one going by the description of "Ronny"; the youngest kid in my neighborhood just turned 17....:rolleyes:

I'm just waiting for the day (March 14th) when I have it in my hands. The hype is killing me.

So until xbox arrives here, I've just been playing a lot of PC games (especially UT & Counter-strike on the net). This will change when the day of the XBOX comes.

So to those who are complaining that they need more xbox games to come out, just think of us unfortunate souls who don't even have the xbox. This should make you appreciate what you have now.
