Has there ever been a game that drove you to purchase a console?

I bought my PS3 because Unreal Tournament 3.

I did as well. Well I would say I just bought mine earlier than I would have otherwise if not for UT3. Hell nevermind the mediocre game, free cooked mods, and keyboard/mouse support on console? This is when DLC was still mostly a nickel and dime thought, and not a thing. I don't regret it.

Now had I waited til GT5.....

I bought a PS2 to play Shadow of the Colossus. It's still one of my all-time favourites. I played it for a short bit on a friends PS2, and was basically thinking "I need to have this as soon as possible". So it was the game I picked up the PS2 with, and my expectations were met, then blown away.

I bought a 360 to play Bioshock when it came out. I actually bought Bioshock before I got the 360. I think I actually played Quake 4 and Gears first though, because I wanted to wait until I was back home to play Bioshock, to give it the right attention.

Well yeah, pretty much all of the consoles I've ever bought. I bought my Game Boy because I wanted to play Pokemon, I bought my N64 because I wanted to play Zelda and Mario, I bought my Gamecube because of Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion, I bought my PS2 because... Huh... Why did I buy a PS2? Kingdom Hearts? Maybe? I bought my DS for Pokemon, I bought my Wii for Super Paper Mario and Mario Galaxy, I bought my PS3 for InFamous and LittleBigPlanet, and I bought my 3DS for Super Mario 3D Land.

The reason I have an Xbox 360 is because I had to have Gears of War. However Home is looking really good and I kind of want a PS3.

Timetravel offers so many perks, but the greatest of all is the benefit of hindsight.

Just curious, cause Little Big Planet is really motivating me to buy a PS3.

multiple times. Mario got me to buy every Nintendo console ever made, Halo 2 and PGR2 got me to buy the Xbox, and the PS3 was sold to me on the back of MGS4

NES = Super Mario Bros. 3

SNES = Super Mario World

Genesis = Sonic the Hedgehog

PS1 = Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen (seriously)

PS2 = Just bought off the hype of the PS1, really. Got it on launch.

Xbox = Halo

Gamecube = Metroid Prime

Xbox 360 = Oblivion and Ghost Recon.

PS3 = Bought off the hype of the PS2... should have waited on this one.

Wii = Mario Galaxy, sold the system within the year. I've never hated a system more.

PC = bought a new PC/upgraded for the following games, Baldur's Gate, Farcry, Starcraft 2, Witcher 2, and I'll probably upgrade again soon when I see the final specs of the new consoles.

MGS4 made me buy my PS3. I really hope Ground Zeroes doesn't end up being a next generation game, because I don't want to buy a new console until the slim version comes out.

Fire Emblem is speaking to me right now for a 3DS. I'd also enjoy Animal Crossing on it when that comes out. Otherwise not sure what I'd really want to play.

Final Fantasy VII made me take my Nintendo 64 money that I was saving up and use it to get a Playstation.
