Xbox is for losers, PS2 is for casuals, and GC is for gamers.
No man, no problems.

Whatever. I buy a system because it has games I want to play, not to win a popularity contest.

Darn right! Is it safe to assume we're both in the loser category? :wink:

And there's nothing wrong with being old school.

Count me in almost every category, then. Old school, loser, casual, gamer, and whatever category you want to lump in PC gamers into.

I care only about the games.

Truth be told, I primarily use my Xbox for DVDs. I guess I'm a double lamer for that, though.

Well, I like my Atari 2600... no memory, crappy graphics, some extremely well thought out games :)

Plus, I have an *original* Magicard!

Of course, just ask to the millions of people that enjoy GameBoy games. It is all about gameplay.

Atari VCS 2600 forever!

I have about 14 games still in their boxes. I know, pithy collection but there are some great titles there. Europe uses PAL format, so there was and is simply less of them in circulation...

Cosmic Ark
Pitfall II
StarMaster
Demon Attack
MS Pacman
Centipede
Defender
River Raid
Space Shuttle
Yar's Revenge
Off the Wall
Xenophobe
Asteroids

And ofcourse...

Space Invaders:

Chomp, chomp, chomp, chomp, chomp....

i still prefer dreamcast, it's got all the arcade shooters on it,

and it will for a long time due to the naiomi system being a dreamcast based system.

oldschool?
that will be my atari jaguar consoles. :D

Hilarious! Unfortunately (or fortunately) I was never in style--even then. While everyone was playing Atari 2600 I had an Odessey2. While everyone had and Apple][ I had a Frankline ACE1000 (only Apple ][ clone ever made I think). I guess I'm addicted to doomed non-standard systems. :)

Actually my Stepfamily had a Philips VideoPAC Which is technically identical to the Oddysey2, except for NTSC-PAL differences ofcourse...

Played pacman (munchkin) till my eyes hurt on that one...
