Played all the early consoles but when PC games started passing them up I played almost exclusively PC games. From Tecmo Bowl to Perfect Dark we were kings of the console betting $100 on Perfect Dark death matches at high school parties. Pretty sad deal but none-the-less true. We had a ringer....my buddy walt has always been a cut above the rest when it came to shooters and he would beat people for money at 007, Perfect Dark, Killer Instinct, or about any other FPS title of the day.
Like I said before, I passed up consoles when PC games started to become better than console games. Some of the early titles that took my from my consoles were Ultima Online, Age of Empires, Ghost Recon, Counter Strike, Etc.
The new consoles look like they are attempting to replace my PC. We got a complimentary XBOX 360 and it sits unplayed over there in the lounge across the hall from me. I got a PS3 and sent it back because frankly big boy games are much better on the PC.
When my Wii showed up at release with all the controllers and nunchuks and what not I knew it was here to stay. Guess what the Wii whispered to me shortly after his arrival. "I'm not trying to compete with your PC I am something different." The Wii has something different and I like it. When I feel like a casual game or want to play something with the kids the Wii is the ticket. The lack of online multi player games has kept me from playing it much at all but Battalion Wars 2 and Smash Brothers Brawl look like a lot of fun and they are just around the corner.
Bottom line is I am a console hater........but the Wii is in a category all by itself. If I didn't have a computer yeah I might get a PS3.....but that won't ever happen so for now I'll play my big boy games on a big boy system.
