I didn't game much between 1998-2004, so I don't have a love for that system that many do.  I played MarioKart 64 and Goldeneye for about 40 hours a week for a semester of college though.  I didn't play the Zeldas until I got them on the GameCube in 2005...and they are amazing.  But beyond those games, I haven't really played much on the system.

:lol: I rank PS3 very high because of the exclusives it has provided. The Last Of Us is one of the finest games I have ever played, and the Uncharted and inFamous series are fine pieces of work as well.

N64 and Gamecube both suffer in that they really don't have that many games worth playing. But the ones worth playing are some of the best games ever created. Goldeneye, Smash Bros. Melee, and Zelda Wind Waker are among the few.

Also, am I the only one who likes Pokemon Snap? That game was awesome.

You're right on this.  I loved my GameCube, but it just doesn't have the volume of games that other systems had.  That's no so much of an issue because I get every major console in a generation now, and there are more games to play than I possibly ever could. I've never played a Pokemon game, though.

Now I'm really craving some Zelda Wind Waker. One of the finest in the series.

I put the 360 on the list because it really perfected the online aspect of gaming and had a ton of exclusives in the FPS/3PS department, and had a controller than people without midget hands could comfortably use (really, one of the best controllers ever)

Yeah, I haven't decided whether or not to play Last of Us on the PS3 or PS4 (I already have a PS3 copy, just haven't played it).  Uncharted was great fun, but I never got into Infamous.

Well since you went ahead and put that in there...

Yes, XBOX Live was executed very well. As far as the shooting genre goes, I've never been that diehard a fan of it. I grew out of Call of Duty after MW2 and never was a fan of Halo minus the hilarious custom games like monster trucks and fat kid.

A lot of people complain about the PS3 controller but I never had a problem. Given that, I do have smaller than average hands (but with long fingers so perfect for guitar). The 360 controller was designed very well, so comfortable to use, but really I could take either one.

the n64 is awesome, but I think nostalgia makes folks think it's better than it is.

outside of nintendo and rare stuff, there wasn't a whole lot of great shit. no rpgs except quest 64, no exclusives for adults except perfect dark and goldeneye...
