On topic, what was the last gaming console you got, and why did you get it?

Had a wii a while back but traded it for a RROD 360 before the softmods got big (Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King had just come out).

Got a 360 at some point after that (different one). Mainly because I had the cash and a friend was selling it. Probably the best experience with a console I ever had, though it got better when I bought a JTAG console later (had accidentally updated my 360 while waiting for JTAG to mature by sticking another hard drive on it).

I suppose a few months back I got a Wii. This mainly as it and a whole bunch of games, couple of wiimotes and some other stuff were going for £15. I had a gamecube throughout all of it and it has mostly been used for gamecube games so eh.

Similarly I had a DS from fairly early on and I did pick up some DS lites when I saw them going cheap at car boot sales.

Didn't feel compelled to get a PS4, xbone, Wii U, Switch or 3ds -- either no games or very few games, most of which lack even a fraction of the charm of the PS360 era.

Switch for Mario Odyssey, Smash Bros Ultimate and eventually Metroid Prime 4. Ended up enjoying it way beyond I ever would have imagined with all the great emulators on it.

Why did you trade something in exchange for a RRoD Xbox 360?

How does Odyssey compare to Galaxy, in your experience?
Odyssey is a lot more like Mario 64 or Sunshine to an extent with the free exploration of giant stages model. Galaxy felt more like an actual Mario game, but in 3D, with the structured, usually straightforward goals and challenges. I really enjoy both approaches to 3D Mario games though.

What I am more specifically wondering.. is Odyssey anywhere near as good as Galaxy?

That assumes that you see Galaxy at a similar position to how I do.

I loved Galaxy 1 and 2 when I played them, but in the last few years I've become anti-motion controls. I would love a Galaxy 1 and 2 remake (I mean why not they remake everything these days and these are two of the highest rated games of ALL TIME) but since there so far is none I would say Odyssey is better. They're all 3 great there's no denying that.

So wait you haven't played Odyssey and yet you get to decide if it's better or not? ok.

I said they're all 3 great games the only reason I would put Odyssey above is no motion controls. Motion controls suck ass face it.

I was not saying it as in, Odyssey is not that good.

I meant.. that game is actually that good?

Anyway, you have insulted me. I am going to block you on here if it is possible.

Go ahead and block me I could not care less. This backs up that they're all great and again to me the difference is motion controls.

That's #1, and #3 and #4 highest rated games of all time. So it's not like one sucks and the other is great they're all great. I just don't like Wii motion controls.

Not wanting, I have successfully put that person on my Ignore list.
