But then I said it wouldn't just be TP (although I'm sure a good percentage of playtime would be zelda, if not just TP then the older games as well).Originally Posted by paintba||er
MP3, Resident Evil UC, and Mario Galaxy would be nice too, not to mention what's [hopefully] to come. I would love to play Mario 64, Starfox 64, and some NES and SNES games like Super Metroid and Super Mario. And I already have the original LoZ on a gamecube disc. So I guess the console is worth it for 4 semi-launch titles plus a library of downloadable old ones, no? I'll have to watch, or I'll go broke just from buying VC games...
plus I do hate the bow aiming in GC, that turns out to be subtly different in every different Zelda game, but the one thing that remains is that you can't move while aiming unless you hold down L/Z at the same time, which is horribly inaccurate (I mean if you can't Z target an enemy). Plus, I have the money to spend, and I've made reckless purchases before that have turned out well (360 for instance), so why not. If anything I'll get a little fun.
Don't mind me, I'm just trying to prove that the purchase is worth it to myself, because I want to buy the thing, but am trying to convince myself to part with the money. I would take it in a heartbeat if someone was giving one away for free, but that isn't gonna happen, now is it?
It's scary when you put thing into perspective. The price of a Wii is a good percentage of that of a plane ticket. Why do the prices of consoles keep crawling slowly upward? I hope by 2010 (or whenever) the next next gen consoles aren't like upwards of 700 bucks, cause then at the rate the U.S. economy is going, we're all screwed. I Would have said upwards of 600, but we already have a contender this generation, don't we?
