JTL, even though it is third place, it still makes money. Nintendo is not going to go belly up. But here are a couple of facts.
FACT: The only good child geared game outside of Nintendo is Kingdom Hearts.
FACT: Nintendo has a virtual monopoly on the kid section of gaming.
FACT: Outside of Knights of the Old Republic, most of the really good Star Wars games come out on Nintendo. How can you compare Starfighter to Rogue
In fact, the only reason to truly own an XBOX is The Bard's Tale. But that is because they port all of their games to the PC. Don't you think they
should leave games like Halo and KOTR on the console alone...making people have to buy the console?
FACT: Nintendo will carry on thanks mostly to their first-party games alone.
FACT: PS's "wide vawiety of games" means that there is higher amount of CRAP! Trust me, they can't all be winners, kid.
But, I want to know what makes you tick, James. I really do. I want to know where this morbid-farkin'-hatred for the Nintendo is coming from. Is
it that most of their games are rated highly? Is the gameplay TOO GOOD for you? Is it that the graphics are comparable to the other two? Is it that
they have a lower price...or that they kept their word and lowered their price significantly? Or is it something petty like every professional game
reviewer saying that GC's Soul Calibur II was the best for Zelda being the system only-character? Or that Windwaker was named the Game of this
Or is it that you love cussing and raping and gang violence so much that it makes you sick to see a gaming system survive without having it? Is that
your problem? That Nintendo can survive without having the most downright vile games. (Yes, GTA is vile.) It enrages you to see a gaming system
that doesn't buckle to popular demand and give their games that "extra edge". So, Nintendo goes with "option B". Which is not to insult my
intelligence and spend more time on the gameplay, graphics, storyline, etc. Which is much better than the way the others spend their extra time.
They are spending more time on how to properly call someone a mother farker or figuring out how often they should drop the N-Bomb in thrity
James, I am a guy who owns all three systems. I play each of system quite a bit. I have several games for each. In fact, I may own more PS2 games
than the others. (Mainly because I had a PS2 two years before the other two.) But, I see the value in each system.
I find it disturbing that you claim to love video games, but you have so much hate for such a good system with very good games. I don't think you
like video games at all. I think you like the attitude, not the substance, IMO. Either that or you never played a GC game ever.
