The Gamecube is the best console to date, both in terms of style, game library, comfortable controllers and everything.
Yes yes yes a thousand times yes.
The Gamecube was fantastic. The best controller as yet, and my favourite multiplayer console to date. It was better than the Nintendo 64 - its core library of 10-20 games are some of the best games of all time.
We are currently in the golden age of gaming as everything coming out now has learnt from decades of mistakes and innovation to produce the best games we have ever had. Anyone who thinks otherwise clearly hasn't played a game from a previous generation for a while or has a severe case of the nostalgia.
The Call of Duty series are well made games, the only issue is the frequency they are released and that people can't stand popularity.
People who use the "its the same game every year" argument directed at COD, yet buy yearly updates of FIFA should be publicly mocked and humiliated.
Multiplayer gaming is a waste of time. Seeking out and playing a new, finely crafted single player experience is far more worthwhile.
Online passes are a good thing, and more should be done to curb the used game market. The "games are too expensive argument" doesn't hold up as if you are poor yet paying full price from GAME rather than saving money by buying online or waiting a couple of months for the inevitable price drop, you deserve to be ripped off.
Zelda should adopt a tone similar to the LOTR trilogy

Personally gaming has made me a better public speaker, leading 24 older raiding players at the age of 16 in WoW does wonders for your confidence, especially when you're all on voice chat
Used to hate giving presentations so much, but now I just explain things in a similar fashion to a boss fight, so it's very logical and concise, and I find it so much easier!
Having a week break at home inbetween semesters at the moment, and my mum gets home from work and one of her first questions is "so how long have you been playing today??". She wouldn't ask that if she'd found me reading a book
Thats brilliant, I'd rep you but I've used it all up, mostly on this thread lol
Oh and this "Zelda: Windwaker was one of the best Gamecube games." = hell yes!!
I'm unimpressed by Nobuo Uematso. I love the music of FFX, but as I understand it that game's score had significant input from both Masashi Hamauzu, Junya Nakano as well as Uematso. I've heard plenty of soundtracks from the other FF games (where the music has been composed by Uematso only) and there have been very few pieces of music from them that I've liked anywhere near as much as those from FFX.
This sums up many of my attitudes towards video games as well. I used to feel that they were a useless hobby, but I've come to think that one shouldn't try to restrict themselves to only the pursuits which have definite redeeming value.
The gamecube controller is the worst controller.
David Jaffe is an idiot and Twisted Metal is terrible (God Of War ftw though).
Most indie games are terrible.
The only western game that compares with japanese games is Kotor 1.
The best games ARE Japanese.
Hideo Kojima is more talented than Miyamoto.
Military Shooters are boring.
There need to be less shooters.
Activision should be dissolved.
There needs to be more RTS games.
I hate games like call of duty and modern warfare. They actually bore me, now its more about the graphics than the actual story line
I'm sure that my big toe could write better storylines than some of the games have at the moment.
Playstation one games like Silent Hill and Resident Evil 2 will always be better in my book
I actually really like Final Fantasy 13/13-2's battle system.
I don't think Street Fighter is the best fighting game series out there.
I don't like COD (it's normally just chav's that think they know about games that play it 24/7)
-The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess is massively overrated. It's not a bad game, just nowhere near one of the best Zelda games in my opinion.
-Another Zelda opinion: I don't understand how people say Phantom Hourglass was terrible yet say Spirit Tracks fixed everything. I honestly don't think it really fixed anything.
-There shouldn't be another remake of a Pokémon game until Gen 6. And the next handheld RPG should be in 3D, or at least be top-down 3D similar to the previously-mentioned Zelda games for the DS.
-Another Pokemon opinion: I think Colosseum/XD were good games. It offered something somewhat different, yet people complained it "strayed too far" from the formula which frankly is getting a bit tired.
-I don't think all modern Sonic games are bad. Yes, stuff like Shadow The Hedgehog and Sonic 06 are terrible, but Sonic Heroes and Sonic 4 aren't that bad.
-Capcom have made some excellent games but need to stop rereleasing them. Resi 4 and the first Phoenix Wright are guilty of this.
