- PS2
- PS3

there are enough inputs in the TV to run the old systems on a switch through the composite video, the PS2 through the component and the PS3 and PC through HDMI. there should be space leftover for some nice speakers and a woofer.

I raise a glass to you, sir.

Lol, same here! I used to put proximity mines on the spawns haha. Or put them on ammo boxes and pick up the ammo box so the mine became invisible.

After getting pwnt by the kids in the church youth group a couple years ago at CoD (I'd never played a ADS game before), I conned them into playing Goldeneye.

I was absolutely maniacal at placing mines everywhere in every blind spot. They thought I was insane I was laughing so hard :lol:

So if you have to select your all time favorite game console (aside form handhelds) what would it be?

It is a tough choice for me between the N64 and the Gamecube.

I would have to say by a very small margin for me it would be the gamecube. When I was growing up I had the gamecube when it first came out and for me it was the best console for a kid. I remember I had the pop up screen that was a portable tv attached to the game cube. That made car trips to Disney awesome.

I also had the gameboy player on the bottom so I could also play my awesome gameboy color and advance games on my gamecube.

Due to the fact of portability and controller feel (n64 always confused me) I would say that the gamecube was the slightly better system for me. Not saying it is a better system but for my needs at the time it was.

After N64, all Nintendo consoles became too kid friendly/family oriented.

I think my consoles were appropriate for the age I was at when I had them. I was born in 1985 so...

NES @ birth lol
SNES @ age 6
N64 @ age 11
Xbox @ age 16
etc.

Well after n64 they did have some more kid friendly games but that didn't make the console bad. I loved luigis mansion, super Mario sunshine, starfox, Mario kart...

I think it had to do more with my age than the console's offerings but if you look at the games you just listed. They were age appropriate for 6 year olds. I was out of the kidsy stuff and into FPS like goldeneye, perfect dark, and turok. Which was a natural transition to the xbox controller and halo.

Hey. I also played need for speed and agent under fire on my GameCube.

Hell I would still play all those games I just mentioned today. In fact I am on eBay meow looking it up.

For reference n64 had games for that demographic as well. In fact that is probably what they were known for. Smash bros, Mario party, all the pokemon... Diddy kong racing.

SNES > PS2 > Wii > Gamecube

My top 4...SNES and PS2 have a pretty good battle, but SNES wins probably on nostalgia and a few absolutely best games of all time in its library, where the PS2 has strength on having the IMMENSE PSOne library plus some pretty great PS2 games to choose from.
Crazyblackman wrote:Anyone else a super smash bros fan for n64?
I preferred Melee (Gamecube), then Brawl (Wii), then the original (N64). The original has some gameplay that you can get away with that causes some horrible habits when you play the newer games, and vice versa.

I still like to play as link.

in other news I downloaded the compile info and spent the last 3 hours compiling open emu. Morel of the story half of it does not work well.

I guess it is back to the old school emulators.

Fox or Kirby for n64

That's what you wanted right? Haha

Wow...Ganondorf for a primary? With Fox as a 1a...interesting. Believe it or not, I did the same thing for Melee at times (though I also swapped Falco for Fox at times...don't like him as much in Brawl). My primary for Brawl is, believe it or not...one of these three, with Zelda as the primary:

I also like to use Lucario because he's awesome and you know it.

Top games of all time. You sir have made me a very happy man posting this game.

In 95 I was in 5th grade and would draw pictures of samus in school and at home. I will try to find some asap.

See? The thing about Super Metroid is that it has NO weaknesses that I can think of. It's relatively easy to play, rewardingly hard to master, awesome graphics and sound, controls that reward precision, and even a little bit of plot. This quote from ScrewAttack.com summarizes what I'm talking about:



(it was #1 in their list of SNES games)

Am I the only one that liked smash bros but got tired of it quickly because it was the exact same game over and over again?

I could sit and do a play through to the final boss and then put the game down for a while. It would loose its fun appeal quickly for me.

Beatles you said your in college right ... I bet there are lots of people there that play it still... When I played with friends alcohol was involved so we always got loud ... The only reason I continue to play it is cause the outcome of the game change everytime you play it with a group of people
