    Gamecube
    Its designed for games, no blue screens, you get a nice controll pad, easy multiplayer, modem/eth0 upgrades available for online gaming in the future, the graphics are nice, you dont need to constantly upgrade the drivers, the new model wont be out next week... it has some life in it, there wont be a bigger and better version with more memory released tommorow, it wont cause you any hassle, ITS PURPLE/BLACK!, its a cube, top top quality games. :)

    What does a vid card have, nowt.
    Computer hardware's nothing but hassle :p

    DM wants GC just to play Metriod Prime :p
    GC costs around $150 I think it's cheap so get it first and when you the prices of new 3d cards go down buy one( G-force FX :happy: )
    I prefer to get GC I don't care about the quality of graphics I prefer the quality of the game play. as long as my old geforce 2 runs everything then I am happy with it :)

    I have Metriod Prime :)

    I must say the SNES version (Super Metriod) is much better.

    I just don't like the fact that it's a FPS now. I would have paid for a Side Scroll game if they made it.

    Even so it's a great game. They put lots of the old school stuff back in.

    I think the controller has to be the strangest thing to get used to, nice once you've used it for a while tho ;)
    Can't beat the Dreamcast controller for comfort tho. [​IMG]

    Cant say i got round to UT on the Dreamcast, i had Quake3 (and quake1 later on :D ), the DC Joypad on quake3 was superb!! but i did later invest in the DC Mouse and Keyboard :happy:

    They're too much hassle tho! At least with a GameCube, xBox, PS2 (YECK) or a Dreamcast you can just pop your cd in and play the game.

    But I like to tinker!

    Game systems are less of a hassle, agreed, but really, I don't have $ to ever buy the games, and on PC you can just nick em off some place for free :)

    well the dc clones of the 2 games doesnt match the quality of the PC ones and unfortunatly i got my dc given to mew after the time when they sold kb and mouse so i dont have em lol plent of games tho i wish i did
    Quake3 i almost bought a few times but when i played the pc ver i was adicted to UT and well it lost to UT for DC cause i liked it more on pc lol
