i remember that being the first mainstream console to have $60+ games. Shame that stuck.
That's why I mainly buy portable, now...
User avatar #241 - UnforgivingOne (11/18/2013) [-]
I'd still pay $200 for a N64

Lol losers. Console gaming is overrated. PC Gamer master race. Goddamn 90s weeabos worshipping everything japanese
User avatar #235 - thedungeonmaster (11/18/2013) [-]
Still the best console ever created in my opinion. Majoras mask was my childhood.

I lucked out, I won the pinewood derby in my boy scouts group when I was 7 maybe and the prize was a PlayStation 1 or a Nintendo 64, at this point I only ever owned a Gameboy so I went with Nintendo and was not disappointed with countless hours of Pokemon stadium. Mfw sister sold it at a garage sale years later for 30 bucks.

lol realistic 3d graphics, though the part about it being an unbelievable gaming experience turned out to be true
User avatar #215 - rainbowdashfj (11/18/2013) [-]
$60 is crazy cheap for a brand new game. You guys complain a bi t too much.

Mario is White and thus is an inferior game hero - Sonic is the best.

I sold a rare beanie baby on ebay for $119 and bought an N64 with the money. I think I was one of the few people lucky enough to cash out on beanie babies before they became just about worthless.

If time travel were possible, the first thing I'd do is go back to the early-mid 90's with a modern day PC/PS4/Xbone when video games were still in their infancy, and show them what modern day video games look like, and just laugh at everyone's reactions.

oh my lawdy. i thought you died or left funnyjunk. nice to see you again although i seriously doubt you know me.

also the whole "O.o" thing you did was kawaii as **** .
#209 to #206 - thundagawd (11/18/2013) [-]
I take it you're Kanade?

You were the one who always pointed out the "O.o" in my posts back when I frequented the anime board
#210 to #209 - ipostcp (11/18/2013) [-]
you trashed my dreams of thinking you would remember me.

no, im not kanade.
User avatar #213 to #210 - thundagawd (11/18/2013) [-]
Not Kanade, he/she's still an active user, Sayaka was the name I was looking for!

At least I think that's you, I remember you deleting your original account. It's been a long ass time since I've been to /anime/. The majority of people I remember clearly were the elitist ***** who refused to accept anyone else's opinion, which eventually led to me leaving otherwise I'd go crazy
User avatar #216 to #213 - ipostcp (11/18/2013) [-]
oh good, you do remember me.

yeah i am him. i thought you died of aids or something. in anycase, i go here now. dunno if you want to check it out, its not that bad but there are a whole bunch of literal fags on there. i gotta go though. nice seeing ya again.

I remember people thinking Primal Rage on Sega Genesis was "to real looking" for children to see. It was in the news.

Considering your "you babies" comment regarding the age of (casual) gamers I feel a strong sense of doubt towards your ability to even TALK to women
User avatar #196 to #195 - rocksteady (11/18/2013) [-]
You are ranting ****** nonsense. It's clear I have been with more women then you, I'm also married now. You are just projecting that you have not been with a women, sad news OP.

The original price for the PS3 was $2000
I heard a very small number of people actually bought the thing
User avatar #192 to #178 - allstarskilz (11/18/2013) [-]
False. It was only $500-$600
#167 - Shawksta (11/18/2013) [-]
Its gonna be 1996 Christmas all over again

I cant wait

Because Wii U has the best next gen christmas line up

Knack was a massive dissapointment, im sorry this happen sonybros, atleast Killzone was great

Implying Xbone, seriously though, 3D World is literally gonna be the best game this holiday and easily GOTY contender
User avatar #247 to #167 - nevolmon (11/18/2013) [-]
why is cat-peach so cute?
User avatar #166 - ReckLESSoNe (11/18/2013) [-]
My 64 still runs better then my Xbox 360
#163 - jjwest (11/18/2013) [-]
Actually, the PS4 has higher specs than the Xbone. But the PS3 was also more powerful than the 360, but there was no noticeable difference in gameplay between the two. I'm still personally invested in PC gaming, I've been playing next gen graphics for well over a year now lol SUCKERS JK
User avatar #170 to #163 - desacabose (11/18/2013) [-]
Too bad graphics don't mean ****
#173 to #170 - jjwest (11/18/2013) [-]
ah yes, but an extensive library of games, many of which that can be modded to your desires, does. Not to mention much more control with a mouse and keyboard vs a controller. You can also use a 360 or PS3 controller on a pc, and I'm sure you'll be able to with the next- gen controllers
#175 to #173 - desacabose (11/18/2013) [-]
Too bad most mods don't add anything at all to the story, or that control is entirely opinion based
User avatar #234 to #175 - alcoholicsemen ONLINE (11/18/2013) [-]
i agree with your views on mods
#229 to #175 - jjwest (11/18/2013) [-]
No, but they add to the customization. How happy the player is with his character, how happy the player is in the world, and how happy he is with the textures. And it is not an opinion that a mouse and keyboard give more control. It's fact. For instance, instead of having to go into a menu system to cast a spell, you can just set them as a numerical key, thus keeping the player into the gameplay without having to temporarily pause the game. How many buttons does a 360 controller have, 14? My laptop has 82 keys and my mouse has 5. Any configuration you could ever want to use is right there, plus support for a console controller if you want. Not to mention a mouse is much more accurate than a joystick when it comes to aiming, for instance. Saying that the fact that a mouse and keyboard offers more control is actually an opinion is like saying water is a liquid is an opinion, as well.
