I've noticed two trends on this and other gaming boards. The first trend concerns those who buy only one next generation console, expecting it to satisfy all their gaming needs. They'll buy the system because they see one or maybe a few quality titles that interest them, but once they play through those games, they lose interest in the system quickly. "It doesn't have any good games," they'll say. "There are a few good titles available, but the other systems all have better line-ups." Often in frustration, they'll trade in the console they expected to love in order to pay for a different one, at which point, the cycle starts all over again. Then, you have the second trend. I notice this mostly in threads started by gaming newbies asking about the merits of each system. This person will ask, "Should I get system X or system Y?" To which, several respondents will say, "I own all three systems and I love them all." In fact, I almost never see anyone who owns all three current gaming consoles put down any one of them. What am I getting at here? I'm basically saying that those of you who regret buying a particular system may simply need to consider getting another system in addition to the one(s) you currently own. If you're like most gamers, you probably have a broad taste in genres and styles of gameplay. Do love RPGs? The PS2 would be for you. Do you drool at the thought of online gameplay? Then Xbox Live might suit your needs? Do you love Nintendo's first-party games? Then obviously a GameCube would be a necessary addition. Each system can claim some worthwhile reason to own it. Those who own more than one system--and especially those who own all of them--are content because their hunger for games is being satisfied with the best each system has to offer. Believe me, the grass isn't greener on the other side of the fence. It's just a slightly different shade of green.
