Console Gaming Thread!
You know the score.

Thread for all your console gaming needs, discussions, game recommendations, questions, feedback, reviews, etc etc.

Post and enjoy!

P.S. Including old consoles too, although it's the newer ones people seem most excited about.

Eh...? 
I thought you hated consoles Shamb, is this some sneaky ploy to divert all unwanted console discussions to some thread that you will never read?

I want my Wii. =( 
Bal 
Me too. With any luck, I can score both a Wii with Zelda, and possibly nab a copy of FF12 to go with my PS2. 
Wii!!!!!!! 
Next Wednesday, midnight launch.

I can't wait. :D 
 
errr another crapy threat! :p

more Q1 threats please :p 
Yes Brilliant! 
But why didn't you create any linux games, mac games, games that require new computers, dx10 games threads as well?

Unless many others think this separation is good I see no other reason for this split other than shambler not giving a rats ass about console games and not wanting to rad about them. 
Consoles 
My friend is so aggravating because he's all "hey you me and my bro can play Rainbow Six: Vegas or Gears of War" and I just AAAAAAAAAAAGHHHHHH at the point that - isn't it obvious cramming 3 people on 1 fucking TV is hopeless, much less 2? TV resolution sucks, you can't see shit - his answer? "Move closer" -- DUDE... agh...

So despite the fact that I hate consoles for numerous reasons, there is one shining light and that may be the Wii. 
Just To Make It Clear 
this thread is a bad idea. Games are games, and you can't just shovel the overwhelmingly largest sector of the industry into one measly thread just because "lol consoles suck am i rite olol" 
I Have To Admit... 
the one thing HDTV will help with is those 4-player splitscreen console game modes, which look like shit on regular TVs. 
Also... 
Does playing an emulated console game on my PC count as a PC game or a console game? And what about cell phone games? Where does Settlers of Cataan fit in here? Bacarat? Crossword puzzles? Sudoku? Pocket pool? Buzzword bingo? 
I Hate Consoles 
only because they cause a division in games, and it means i'd have to buy every console if i wanted to play every game. also ports are evil.

Since you normally really dig making universal threads that reach across the broadest spectrum of ideas and concepts (e.g. "Best Monsters" thread instead of "Best Quake Monsters" thread), why oh why did you feel the need to segregate PC games and console games?

Where does one discuss a game that was released on both PC and a console? 
Why, In The PC & Console Crossover Thread 
 
Metl 
exactly.

I played FIFA (ps2) on ym widescreen tv not too long ago and while the ps2 graphics show their age when you have them blown up, the 4 player game is much more satisfying because oyu can actually see what's going on.

I figure it'd be even better for shooter since normally you have a window size the size of a hand. 
 
Phait, get a better TV, and stop whining. Projector recommended. You're also missing half the point of playing split-screen.

metlslime, Settlers of Catan is a boardgame. Crossword puzzles, sudoku, buzzword bingo are puzzle games. 
 
lets turn this into PC vs console flame 
Also 
Projector is usless in the lit room 
A Mac Games Thread... 
... would be pretty short. 
Vigil: 
yeah, but board games used to fit into the "other games" thread, but now it's PC games only, and this is console games only, so all other games are now without a thread to call home. 
What About 
smartphone games thread? 
I Prefer 
the linux-on-xbox games thread 
Metlslime 
huh? when did that happen
who the fuck inserted 'PC' there 
Answers: 
and you can't just shovel the overwhelmingly largest sector of the industry into one measly thread

Before, the entire industry was in one measly thread. Now it's in two threads. So actually, you're argument works the other way - this is giving the largest sector of the industry MORE space on the board.

Since you normally really dig making universal threads that reach across the broadest spectrum of ideas and concepts (e.g. "Best Monsters" thread instead of "Best Quake Monsters" thread), why oh why did you feel the need to segregate PC games and console games?

This is an extremely broad thread - every console and every console game ever released - I hope that is broad enough for you.

Look....

Quite a few people seem to want to discuss console games only - that's great for them.

Quite a few people seem to want to discuss PC games only - that's great for them.

Some people want to discuss both - ditto.

This thread just helps keep discussions clear by focusing seperately on two seperate areas of gaming. If you like both areas, read both threads!

Please forget the moaning about it and just accept there's no real reason to complain, and just post your discussions/views in the relevant threads. 
Well 
Whatever, anyone have a DS and a Wii? If so, if I had neither, which one would be the better choice to get? DS has a much larger library of games, some of which are FUCKING AWESOME, but the Wii has tons of potential and a seemingly really good start. Since the Wii also plays GC games, it also has a ton of high-quality first-party titles to choose from, as well as some good 3rd party titles.

Being a Nintendo fanboi, I'd rather have one or the other or both, so which one should I get? 
Ffs, Shambler 
It's not like the original Other Games Thread had that much traffic to begin with.

Moreover this isn't keeping in the spirit of maintaining Func as an archive, nor in the spirit of an open and free board, which seem to be qualities metl wants and others admire (such as myself).

You're just about the only person who wants it this way, so how about putting it back the way it was instead of forcing your views on us? 
How Boring Is... 
...unnecessary dogma for the "purpose" of being dogmatic? I'd say "very".
