I have a Wii and an Xbox, but I tend to play the Xbox the most. Call of Duty:World at War is awesome

I don't own, and have never played, a PS3, so I wouldn't know about the system, but it is damn expensive, so I'm not going to be buying one anytime soon. :p
I own a Wii and 360 though, and I play my Wii more. (probably because I have like 15 games for the Wii, and 3 for the 360. xD) The Xbox360 has some mindblowing graphics, and the best shooters out there, but the Wii is just generally fun. ^_^

The PS3 has my favorite franchises and features. To me, nothing can deter me from the offerings of Naughty Dog or Insomniac.

Yeah, heck yeah! Finally, someone made a thread like this agian! earth_type_rule hates it when people create threads like these, but... who cares!

Xbox 360 & Playstation 3: most games are repetitive and boring. Playstation 1 is still "my favorite game system of all time," but the PS3 games compaired to the PS1 games fails. Good hard drive, and great networking though. Xbox Live gives good feature too.

Wii: these games are in lower quality then the systems above, but in my opinion, the games are slightly better, but I prefer the Nintendo Dual Screen games more.

I only own the Xbox 360 out of the 3 by the way.

And the winner is ... neither, I dislike the 7th Generation gaming era, most games are not my type today, they need to bring back series like Oddworld, Twisted Metal, and Gex agian. Games such as Metal Gear Solid, Gran Theft Auto, Crash, Spyro, Tomb Raider, and Froger, got lost with their entertainment.

Metal Gear Solid 1 was great, but Metal Gear Solid 2 was "okay," when I heard that Metal Gear Solid 3-4 had no radar, and got too realistic, I lost my interest. The radar was the main thing I like about the game, and I hate it when games get too realistic overtime, gee!

Gran Theft Auto IV was "lost and damned, as they said with the titled of the new download." They took out all the features from San Andreas and add the new style of crap. Not only that, they re-designed that good old GTA III's Liberty City into a bigger, brighter, crapper, unorganized, hard-to-get-around region. I call it New Liberty Gimmick City. I can't stand the car controls, the annoying music, bad character interest and dialog. Claude, Tommy, and Carl make Niko look like crap. Why did they had to make an ugly ass boring main character for GTA?

We all know what happened to Crash, Spyro, and Tomb Raider. They ran out of ideas. Froger on the other hand got too childish after 2, and lost its whole good game play. Froger 1 was the best one anyway.

For all the crappy new very realistic, repetitive and boring game series such as Gears of War, Assassinates Greed, Residences, Tom Clancy, and other stupid new clones out the. Have fun everyone! These are not the games in this paragraph started my childhood.

XBox 360, its the one I play the most. Haven't played a PS3 yet, though.

Wii is okay, I haven't been too attracted to it and I've gotten kind of tired of the whole hand-motion ordeal.

ATM, I'll have to say Xbox 360 for Halo and Assassin's Creed and the other great FPS's and GoW.

BUT, once MadWorld and this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EROCvwE-LGM&feature=PlayList&p=DE102DDB8DC40C91&index=25) beast (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CeLbPoij0yM&feature=PlayList&p=DE102DDB8DC40C91&index=26) come out for the Wii, it will be my favorite hands down. Supposedly its supposed to be like a Gears of War mission like game for the Wii with online play akin to Halo. Pretty much like a Halo for the Wii, but better.

Tbh it's a tossup between PS3 and 360. The Wii is a lot of potential wasted IMO.

PS3 because of the Blu-Ray. Having a games console that plays movies is pretty damn awesome. Wii comes at second because of it being innovative.

My order: PS3 > Wii >>>>>>>>> 360

Well, I didn't mean for it to be read that way. What I meant was that Halo and Assassin's Creed are good games, and so are the other 360 FPSs

Wii. I own a 360 as well, but I play the Wii more. Frankly, the games we have for the Wii are more fun-Brawl, Revolution, Animal Crossing...Heck, even ol' Gamecube games like Shadow the Hedgehog shine with a new light ^^

Plus, I just love Gamecube >.>

360 has some good-yet some disappointing games. Gears of War 2 was awesome, Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise was fun, Sonic Unleashed had beautiful graphics...But Halo 3 was disappointing.


Dang, Spyro is hard on Wii :oops:

Also, I owe it to the 360 and Wii; they showed me that I totally suck at Next-Gen Sonic games XD

I own all three, and the 360 is the best of the bunch.

Dragoness
03-01-2009, 08:01 AM
Hmm...It's hard for me to pick a favorite of those and of several other gaming devices. The Wii is interactive and really fun to play; from what I have played on the PS3 (not much), it's graphics are awesome and it seems to have really good content; the X-Box has good graphics and it's games tend to have decent gameplay. But that still leaves several other consoles, like the Gameboy, the Super Nintendo, Playstation I and II and more. *shrug* ah well, all of them are fun :happy: No real favorites here, although the Wii is very high on my list :)

I only own the Wii, but I've practically lived my life with Sony

I can't really choose between PS3 and Wii, but I'm for sure Xbox 360 isn't anywhere near it

The only game I could possibly want for the Xbox 360 would be iDOLM@STER

I'll go with the Wii, its a family console unlike the other two >.>

But nothing beats the classic PS2 IMO

Well it's the way it appeals to non-gamers and parents. Parents like that their kids get up and move around when they play (when most of the time they don't). Especially things like Wii sports and Wii fit. Nintendo needs to appeal to gamers just a bit more, because they're not doing it very well. I understand where you are coming from, but it's the mindset of Nintendo fans.

Also, it's Nintendo's fault. They allow these companies to create 3rd party games that suck, and the devs don't know the capability of the wii's graphics. The gamecube had potential - Look at all the graphics of the Metroid Prime series. It was possible, and the wii uses similar technology. Devs do not know the potential of the wii besides Nintendo's devs.

Then there's the huge list of really good casual games. Frankly, I'd rather have eight hardcore games and eight casual games than only a bunch of good hardcore games and no good casual games. That's just me though. I like variety. :hungry:

Those are great games, but they're not all hardcore material. Other consoles definately have more hardcore material. Also, all the casual games on the wii are 3rd party minigame games. Obviously not worthy of good casual games.

The wii is my favorite console none-the-less, even though it doesn't have a lot of hardcore material, but it does have some of the best game series (Zelda, Mario, SSB, Metroid, etc.)
