When people mature, they move on, get girlfriends, and become social gamers....

I understand that ppl disagree with this and I won't hold it against you if you get pissed about it.
But if you defend it like it's your life, take a look in the mirror... ok? tongue.gif

Yeah, social gamers who play Halo, Burnout, LoZ: Four Swords, SSBM, Perfect Dark Zero, and Wario Ware Inc. Most people that are complaining about your post do so because you are suggesting that the Nintendo games aren't "mature" enough for adults to play. Hopefully, you'll learn to judge games based on how much fun they are rather than whether or not someone on mtv says the game is cool.

Yeah, Nintendo does aim their games at children, you can't deny. Mario doesn't exactly run arround shooting cops or running prostatutes over with a hummer. But the thing about Nintendo is that they make games everyone can enjoy. Take these two games for example.
1. Mario Kart Double Dash - Sure Nintendo makes a racing game that's colorful and cute that little kids are gonna drool from watching all the colors and cartoony voices flash on the screen. But for experienced gamers, nintendo adds in pro features like the skid/boost option which if you practice at it makes the game the most technical racer of all time.
2. Super Smash Bros. Melee - Again, a colorful game with cartoon voices. Even a little 6 year old can pick up a controler and be entertained. But when taken to the games full potential, the fighting and manuvering in the game is so technical that it takes months to learn the full abilities of a single charachter.
Nintendo is smart. They don't make a game for a certain age group or target audeince. They make games everyone can enjoy. Sad thing, people don't realize how in depth the gameplay of most Nintendo's first party games are because they shrug it off as some "kiddy" game.

I'm not even getting a 360. The first Xbox dissapointed me too much. PS3 for me.

Anyway people saying Forza is better than GT? Good grief, what has this world come to?!

i'll be getting a rev first day out as i've done with the n64 and gamecube. the main reason i choose nintendo is unlike sony all of nintendos products are top quality and innovative. dont forget if it wasnt for nintendo there wouldnt be playstation.nintendo will (to me anyways) be the dominant company even if they dont have all the money or the best selling systems.the reason is simply they make games fun to play.eternal darkness is a REALLY good game that i just beat again after like 3(?) years.they have the best controllers and again dont forget that it was nintendo who incorparated the rumble feature back on the n64.something we all take for granted now or dont even really acknowledge anymore. sony just doesnt take the time to make sure their systems will last.sure they have alot of games but i cant count how many of them are actually any good. to me the rev will be a must own sytem with the x360 a very close 2nd.and besides with the current gen systems the gcn and xbox are the only 2 systems worth owning.sony is from a technical standpoint a complete and utter joke.

Apart from the usual "grafics dunt make geymes nub!!!11", that's quite a brash statement. Considering that the US Millitary is using the Cell, you'd think it would be quite powerful..

Besides, the PS2 has much better games than half the crap that's on Xbox.

not really... sony couldnt make a decent game or system if their lives depended on it. playstations are just complete failures its not even funny.... sure they have a huge library of games but again not many good ones that justify buying a playstation. and besides people like to complain that nintendo has "kiddie games" but sony has way more kids games than nintendo and not to mention some total ripoffs of some nintendo games.

obviously PS3, because nintendo is got a reputation for being a "kiddie" system and also there controller setup on the gamecube was pretty bad when it came to playing certain games with it.

but my money is by far on xbox 360 myself, cause once it gets hacked it will obviously be the system of choice just like the xbox is when it comes to moding and the benifits u get from it when compared to moding other systems.... the "other" systems u just cant do as much when there moded as u can with xbox.

p.s. i just dont get why the playstation name in general is so popular?!?! ... sure is has some good games, but the way i see it is anytime ps2 and xbox both get the same game u can pretty much guarentee that a high percentage of the time (if not always) it will be better on the xbox since the xbox is more powerfull than ps2... cause besides the games that are exclusive to the ps2 i think xbox is flat out better especially once u mod the xbox... once the xbox is moded i think it wipes the floor with the ps2 (even is ps2 is moded also)

only game i really like on the ps2 is basically the gran turismo series (i like GTA series to, but i dont like playing shooters on consoles so i got it for pc) ... but since the may 2005 release of "forza motorsport" i dont really need gran turismo all that much anymore since i think forza is superior to the gran turismo series mainly cause of the acceleration and deacceleration with the xbox's right and left triggers... makes it feel more "real" when compared to the ps2 methods on gran turismo... i have not played the most recent gran turismo 4 but im pretty sure the general gameplay is almost identical to the gran turismo 3 a-spec which i have played.

plus i like the cars in forza motorsport better ( shelby mustang gt500 , buick regal GNX , shelby cobra etc) ... gran turismo might have more cars in the game but there rather pointless ones after a certain point.... "muscle cars for life, screw imports!" wink.gif

u seem to have some good points... but the "kiddie" stuff is true and without more adult themed games it's kinda hard to enjoy a game with the graphics (kiddie graphics, and yes i know graphics dont make a game) that nintendo uses in most of there popular nintendo (first party) made games... when i was young mario etc (after mario 64 on N64, i think they went out the window) was good but now i just cant deal with them since they cant give me the expierience i am looking for etc.... i think this is why alot of people "dismiss" nintendo's first party games.... not trying to start anything with you at all wink.gif this is just what i think.... and also since alot of people like shooters that kinda eliminated nintendo gamecube since it's controller sucks for shooters and pretty much everyone says that.

just my thoughts wink.gif

I'll pick PS3 cause of HDMI, Blu-Ray and GT5 smile.gif



You mean Vision Gran Turismo 3 - Part 2 blink.gif

Let's hope they find time to improve the A.I. and add some solid online gameplay (with more than 1 car) this time. iamwithstupid.gif

Another 200 cars simlpy won't cut it sleeping.gif

Btw.: The current HDMI specification doesn't allow 1080p (maybe a bandwidth issue), so component HDTV cables are the way to go for now ... wacko.gif

Oh really? Does Xbox or Nintendo have anything like Amplitude? Metal Gear Solid 3? Star Ocean 3? Xenosaga? Xenogears? Parasite Eve? .hack//? Resident Evil 4 (yes, GCN has this)?

If I HAD to pick another one, if I really HAD to, like if you were menacing me with an ice pick, I'd buy a PS3.

Boycot sony

BOYCOT SONY

BOYCOT SONY

I'm boycotting sony because of a few major reasons:

  1. DRM Rootkit protected CDs opening up huge security holes. Installs on your comptuer even if you click cancel, using up processor resources.
  2. US Sony president saying, "Most people, I think, don't even know what a rootkit is, so why should they care about it?" Source
  3. While MS fixes their shit when things break, Sony on the other hand forces you to pay a repair fee after 90 days with their console.
  4. Case in point with other sony electronics, I own a business and we use two Sony DCR-VX2000s. Firewire ports on BOTH cameras have broken. No other DV camera causes these problems. I tried to get them fixed through extended warrenty though MACK CAMERA, and they told me that they didn't have to fix it because it was a defect with Sony product, and to take it up with Sony. Sony told me that after 90 days they do not warrent any of their electronics.
  5. Sony only budges when class action lawsuits are brought upon them successfully. Many Playstation 2 owners have bought 2-3 systems within the 5 years console lifespan.
