In my opinion there's no reason whatsoever to start these "This Console rulz and that one stinks"-debates. The fact is: Every console (PC too) has bad games, really bad games, good games, and friggin' excellent games. The competition in the highest technology s**t-level is pointless, because when all the flash of a new machine is gone, what really matters is the idea in the games themselves. I give a lot of value for plots, originality, having lots and lots of fun, etc.. When someone comes up with something, that glues you to the screen and leaves you powerless to do anything about it, it's sinful, but I like it. ;) And remember, simple solutions make the greatest results!

I can preach, if I want to.. :)

So, cool games: Final Fantasy VII & VIII!!!!!
(Played both on PlayStation until my eyeballs turned red. Still kept on playing..)

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2.
(A pleasant surprise, thought it was just crappy music and stupid attitude, but it was a-d-d-i-c-t-i-v-e!!)

Tekken-series, especially Tekken3!!
(Not much of a plot, but hey, sometimes you gotta rest your brains.. Haven't played in a while, though..)

The GTA-series!!
(goes into the have-lots-of-fun -section..)

And of course, my newest physical-shape-killer:
Uplink!!!

I rest my case. :)
In their central machine, there is one empty file, and it's me.

The problem now is that consoles are just little computers (same hardware and all).  They do cost a good deal less than a PC, but they are also less powerful.  I loved the original consoles, especially the NES, because they were different, they had no load times, and had a nice smooth performace (as opposed to many of the computers of the day).  Now I see little reason to get a console (in fact the SNES was the last one I owned) because anything done on a console can be better done on a decent PC.  There is some decent game developers that specialize in consoles, but that alone is not much of a reason for me to plop down a goodly amout of cash for one.  :)

Dzouney's right, I'd prefer it if we didnt get into a discussion about what console is better if its all the same to you guys.

Just to end it; the PC is king. Also, Deus Ex rules and I won't hear a word against it.

The greatest game of all time is Pong.
I also however like Fallout, Arcanum, Homeworld, Earth 2150, Total Annihilation, and Siege of Avalon.

Upon examining other people's posts, I have some feedback:
Starcraft, like every other blizzard game save warcraft 2, was horrible, especially considering its release date. (It came after Total Annihilation and was vastly inferior)
Fallout was superb; Fallout 2 didn't live up to expectations.
Torment was a good one, but I got a bit tired of it.
Total Annihilation, while wonderful, is, in my opinion, approximatly the equal to Earth 2150.

Surely you mean apart from Warcraft 2 AND 3, right?

No, 3 had those stupid power heros. I make one hero, level him a bit, then level the computer, too easy. Plus it came out after Earth 2150 and was vastly inferiour
