Greetings. I'm primarily a PC gamer. I used to have a PS2, and NES when I was a younger kid. I'm not familiar with the newer systems now, and I'm sort of after something. What should I get? DS, PSP, PS3 (lol), Xbox 360?

That's a hard one, we have no idea what you really want.

So get a DS.

That chart makes little sense. If you say you don't like video games, it then takes you down the option to buy only video game systems.

It should probably ask "are you a sucker for Microsoft operating systems?" "Yes" would go to the PCs, "No" would go to the consoles.

The DS currently has the best games. If you only want to play PC type games, get a PS3 or 360.

Yeah the DS not only has many of the best games, but it also has the most good games. Which is why my DS game collection is at 40 games, not including the pirated stuff.

If you want a PC like experience get an Xbox. If you want something like a PS2 but with much better get a PS3. If you want casual quick games on the go get a DS. If you want console like games on the go get a PSP. Hope that helps.

mod your PS2, get all the games you missed out on that weren't released wherever you live. fuck the next/current gen.

It makes perfect sense if you've ever been to 4chan's /v/ board.

What kind of games do you like? That's where I'd start.

For shooters, can't beat a 360. Seriously. 99% of all decent shooters are on the xbox360.

For kwirky japanese games, go with either the Wii or the DS. Obviously if you want kwirky and portable DS is the choice for you.

PS3 is probably going to have most Japanese RPGs -- Suikoden, Final Fantasy, Star Ocean, Atilier Atlas, etc. Probably a few puzzlers, but not nearly as many as the Wii.

Other than that, for shear numbers of available games, xbox 360 is pretty good. Wii and PS3 don't have as many games yet.

PSP is good if you want a game machine that can do other stuff too. IE movies, music, and web browsing. DS does have pictochat and wifi, but you'll never be able to download a movie on it.

> DS does have pictochat and wifi, but you'll never be able to download a movie on it.

you can with a flash cart. it's no good for music though, because the sound quality is terrible. don't let anyone tell you the DS is a viable mp3 player, it makes my ears cry.
