    favorite game console

    I bought a Nintendo Wii last week (christmas sale). I am enjoying it, even though I haven't gotten any new games in yet (I plan to buy a nice rpg game next month). But it did make me think and be curious. What is your favorite modern game console?

    We've got them all, the Wii, the Xbox 360 and the PS3 and of those, I like the Wii best, it's just the most fun system to play. I can't say I care for the PS3 much at all and while the 360 has some great games, I find myself going back to the Wii more often than not, if I'm going to sit down and play something. Plus the fact, both Microsoft and Sony are playing catch-up with Nintendo, trying to do the things that the Wii has done since release, that they're only now doing with the Kinect, etc.

    Nintendo won this round. We'll see about the next one.

    PS3

    It has the games of the XBox but also has a Blue Ray DVD, and many other functions that make it much more then a game system

    I'm pretty disillusioned with console gaming as my PS3 broke twice, the second time after it cost $150 to repair, and is sitting in pieces on a table in our storage room after we tried a manual repair. Computers are better if you have the time and money to build one for gaming, and pretty much all the games I'm looking forward to in 2011 (half of them are Bioware games - Dragon Age 2, Old Republic, and Mass Effect III) are probably going to be superior on PC (possible exception is Space Marine).

    Having perused them all at one point or another, I would pick the Xbox 360. I like its exclusives more, Gears of Wars and such.

    Still have the Wii for the upcoming Zelda though.

    In all honesty, I never enjoyed gaming more than when I did it on my Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

    Xbox 360 only because it's online gaming is light-years ahead of the PS3's online gaming, mainly because you pay for xbox live.

    The PS3 is a home entertainment system more than a game system, IMO.

    Nothing beats the N64, but as for current gen stuff, I'll go with PS3. I've been a Nintendo fan boy my entire gaming life, and while I still still love my Wii, it just has not delivered as much this generation as the Sony. I feel that Nintendo has been somewhat slow in embracing its original fanbase this generation, those of us who stuck with the Big N even during the Gamecube days when it was roundly criticized when compared to the PS2 and Xbox. Fortunately, the Wii has improved. Zelda, Brawl, and Mario Galaxy are some of my favorite games, but the system is still plagued by poor third party support. While Microsoft and Sony get titles like Bioshock and Fallout 3, the Wii gets dumbed downed versions of Call of Duty. While much has been made of the motion controls, the system is still, in many ways, a step back from even the game cube technically. As a Nintendo supporter, I know that technology is not nearly as important as the vision behind the games, but a lot of times, especially this generation, the Wii probably cannot go where other systems go. I doubt that the Wii would even be able to play a game the size of Fallout very well. The Wii will always have a place in my gaming, and Nintendo, by far, remains my favorite video game company, but as I get older, I'd like something a little bit more developed than friend codes.

    As for the other system, I like gaming on my PC, but I don't want to spend too much money on a good gaming computer. As for Xbox 360 and PS3, I just like the controller and free internet better. I also prefer Uncharted and LittleBigPlanet to Halo and Gears of War.
