  • The poll

    The only thing i don't like about the poll is that PC Gaming and console buying are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

    • Yeah, I know

      ... but I decided to keep it simple. What's amazing me is how well the Wii is doing!

      • It shouldn't . . .

        It's cheaper, it has more family-oriented stuff, it has the hottest game franchise EVER on it (Mario & Co.), and Disney just announced that any games using their characters will be made only for Nintendo . . . IF I can talk my wife into letting me buy a new system, it'll probably be the Wii.

      • man, you know how to make a guy feel completely ungeeky.

        Okay... I know about the XBox360, but I really like the demo of the PS3 (looking forward to buying a PS3 - staying away from M$ on principle), but you've made me sooooo ungeeky. I had to go look up 'Wii' --- I guess I'm not the geek that I used to be. I should know this stuff!

        • But how do you say

        • you might want to do some homework

          " I know about the XBox360, but I really like the demo of the PS3 (looking forward to buying a PS3 - staying away from M$ on principle), "

          If you had any principles you'd first check out if all the bad press that Microsoft is getting is true or not.
          Sucess creates lots of enemies and most of the bad press is just due to this factor

  • MAME rocks.

    My preference is the home-built MAME arcade cabinet in my basement.

    Sitting in front of a TV just doesn't have the same atmosphere as standing at the cabinet with dual joysticks, industrial-strength arcade buttons and stereo sidewall speakers focused on your head. 500+ games on the menu, and no CDs to scratch. It also has Internet access and a retractable keyboard.

    You weenies can keep your silly little consoles.
    You call yourselves gamers? Yeah, right.

    • Yeah!

      Supersprint with 3 people ROCKS!

      Seriously though, the graphics on xbox 360 in that racing game (the name escapes me at the moment since I played at Best Buy but don't actually own one) are awesome, but the game physics like smashing into a telephone pole are pretty lame.

      This is nothing against XBOX or any other console in particular, but it's pretty sad that a car racing game in 2006 is pretty much the same as one in 1990 -- just prettier graphics.
