    Xbox 360 is better than the Playstation, Nintendo 64, Saturn, Dreamcast, etc? In what universe?

    I would also include Kameo, which is a tough game to describe. It's a Rare game that combines arcadey hack and slash combat with platforming, collectibles, Zelda-ish dungeons, Zelda-ish sidequests, and a hub-based open world. You play an 11-way polymorph fairy chick and go on a big ole adventure.

    Historically it's a bit interesting; Kameo was supposed show off the console's power, because the big open map between zones is chock full of endless enemies to massacre. Reviews were lukewarm if I remember correctly, but I think that's a bit harsh. The game is unique.
    Haven't played it since it came out, but fond memories.

    Not exclusives, but games which I had some real good times with on the 360 and I still have in my collection today to return to.........

    That's a pretty big list there, and there's a lot of lengthy 30+ hours games in there too.

    I genuinely can't think of many other consoles which have provided that amount of thrive-time

    PS3? Library wise both consoles seem too similar to each other, is Xbox360 providing overall better experience of the same games? Better pad? Better multiplats? Lower hardware failure rate? Better anything?

    Definitely a better pad, for me it was a more reliable system too. Still have it, never 1 thing wrong with it in around 10 years. Had 2 PS3's die on me. Luck of the draw I guess.

    Yeah, Xcom, Farcry and Deus Ex are real "I could play this on PC but I'll play it on console instead" games. Sure.

    I only buy fighting games (cuz the PC used to BSOD with controllers, fixed that though) and console exclusives ever since building my first gaming PC.

    I heard you can mod the 360 with just a SATA cable now. What models should I look for in thrift stores?

    Who's saying I didn't play them on PC too? I do. It's just what mood I'm in & how I fancy playing them.

    Sometimes is in the office on the PC, sometimes it's in the front room with my feet up. Each has it's place.

    The final verdict is Xbox 360 is crap, PS3 offers way wider selection of interesting games in any genre. Microsoft fucked up with the first versions of Xbox 360 on retail market just to make sure they'd slam dunk a defective product (their cooling WAS shit) by the year 2005, just to be one year ahead of Sony and Intel/AMD/Nvidia. Dick move towards customers.

    Lost Oddysey is a poor weebs Planescape: Torment.

    I wasn't struck on certain elements of Lost Oddysey (mostly the total emo-fag of a main protagonist), but I've gotta say, I think that it absolutely nails the JRPG format perfectly.

    It's as if they've been honing the formula for years to make that game. It just gets so much right.

    Maybe it's the format that is unsuitable for a game like this?

    That's why you build a pc for home theater use.

    Not if you enjoy a change it's not.

    I like redheads, my missus is a redhead. But my mistress is a blonde. Doesn't mean I prefer blondes when I'm fucking her, just means it's nice to fuck something different now & then. Same for gaming.

    I always thought X Box (and sequels) was a crippled PC.

    Never bought one. Never had any interest in its one or two exclusive games.

    Microsoft money grab from the start.

    Well it's from 2005, and for that specific year, it was loaded with hi-end PC equipment, 3c/6t PowerPC CPU and first GPU that has unified shader cores and dedicated framebuffer that enables quality anti-aliasing. But it was an unfinished product that should've taken another year for redesigning. The DVD drive was laughable and gets worned out before GPU and CPU fries, no HDD and reliance on memory cards on cheaper versions, no HDMI, all this already cripples Xbox too much.
