Ocarina of Time and Goldeneye definitely made me buy a N64. But recently not really,I had all the consoles before a game I was looking forward to anyway.
xbox360=gears and halo but im dissapointed in the system overall. hardware is crap and live IMO is not worth 50$
ps3=ratchet and clank but for some reason it became my main console i love the controller oh and resistance was a big seller i played it at a comp usa in there theater room and was amazed.
wii=brawl now this console im am really dissapointed in i dont even want to talk about it.
I've always looked at the console as a whole, games that are out, games that are coming out, it's capabilities outside of gaming. it's weird. I've been an excellent consumer since I was a child and decided Super Nintendo had the games I needed to play.
Sure, I chose the N64, but I got enough out of Zelda and Goldeneye to justify that.
Gamecube: Metroid Prime (also led to me discovering Greg Kasavin's wonderful writing and trustworthy reviews)
Nintendo DS: Advance Wars DS
GBA: Tactics Ogre, and portable Super Mario World!!! (that game deserves so much more than three exclamation marks)
PS2: Metal Gear Collection
A Gamecube for Super Smash Bros. Melee.
I think the overwhelming majority of people who own a console nowadays have a must-own title in mind when they buy it. That's why such games are referred to as system-sellers, killer-apps (ugh), what have you.
Notables in my past were the PS2 for MGS2, the N64 for Super Mario 64, the SNES for Secret of Mana, and the NES for Super Mario Bros. 3. Which, ironically, I never ended up owning.
In an odd fit of blind stupidity, i was so taken with Gears of War initially that I went out and bought an XBox for the hell of it. It was the day I got a Wii (my birthday, actually. I stood around stalking Target employees to get one for my siblings) and I was like "what the hell, I'll just get one of these too".
