Has a game ever...
« on: 15:33, 06 March 16 »
...made you buy a console?

I bought the PS1 for Rival Schools, the PS2 for ICO, the PS3 for Mirrors Edge and now I'll be buying the PS4 for Dark Souls 3.

Once.
Smackdown - Shut Your Mouth was the main reason I bought a PS2 in 2003.
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1GB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.

Magazines almost convinced me I had to buy an Amiga to play Dungeon Master.

"Almost".
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica and The Dawn of Kernel for the CPC.

If you like my games and want to show some appreciation, you can always buy me a coffee.

I bought an XBox for Halo: Combat Evolved.
I will buy an NX if Beyond Good & Evil 2 is a Nintendo exclusive.

Never owned a console, so obviously not.

Pretty much all the Mario games have made me buy Nintendo handheld consoles to play them on. But no more. Nintendo can fuck off now.

Same here. A Crazy Taxi coin-op session in year 2000, instantly made me buy a Dreamcast. Even it didn't, Seaman would do the same a couple of months later for sure :)

Sure! Gamecube for Zelda Windwaker, Metroids, Resident Evil 4, Tales... Dreamcast for Shenmue... and more recently, I would have bought the PS4 for Bloodborne if it was not my console of choice already   :D.

Some other games made me to upgrade the graphics cards as well. This is usually not an issue, because I need big computers to work in the lab and at home, but in some cases I upgraded a bit faster than usual for some games. I am thinking about Crysis 1 and some other shooters.

About as much money as that version of Street Fighter II for the CPC!  :D

...made you buy a console?


Sonic The Hedgehog made me want a Mega Drive (didn't get one until 2012 though, my parents went for the Mega-PC instead, way back when).
I missed out most consoles because there wasn't anything special that I wanted on them that the PC couldn't do; and consoles couldn't play Civilisation or Frontier: Elite II so I wasn't interested. However...


Grand Theft Auto 3 got me to pick up a PS2.
Halo got me to buy an Xbox.
Halo 2 got me to buy an Xbox 360.
Wii Sports and Wii Fit got me to buy a Wii.


Since I started collecting older consoles and computers, a few games have made me look back on various pieces of hardware. I bought a Dreamcast to play Shenmue (and one day I'll have the time to fix the laser head alignment in the Dreamcast so I can actually play it!) and I picked up an N64 to play Goldeneye (then instantly wondered what the fuss was all about. Seriously guys, that game is nothing special compared to PC games from the same time). The GameCube I have because it was cheap but there's nothing really special on it, and while I have a SNES, I'm still trying to track down anything worthwhile to play on it (although StarFox is pretty fun every now and then).


Computers are a different matter, however. I filled my Mega-PC up with RAM to play X-Wing and TIE Fighter. I upgraded to a Pentium to play Quake. I upgraded my PC to play Grand Theft Auto; and I still keep a decent-spec PC around to run Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition even though I've moved over to a Mac for everything else.

Some games are worth the effort, but most are a case of "if I have something it runs on, I might take a look at it".

Played it in Rumbelows and wanted it.

That star wars one for an N64. Shadows of the Empire I think it was called?

Rogue Squadron for the GameCube or Leader which ever was first.

Gears of war for the 360.

DOAXBV for the original Xbox and Count Duckula 2 for the 6128+

Really cos I never boot that game up ever. The CPC version is only mediocre at best. But then again it's really only the final version that AA received, and was passed to me by Dave Golder in the hope the source code would help with my game Lethal Moves

In 1997 I bought PlayStation because Colin McRae Rally and Gran Turismo.
In those times since 1 year I already had Amiga 1200 with 030 and HDD. It was very good decision. :)

@Trebmint - So, do you have this Chase HQ2 for GX4000 ??
In STARS, TREK is better than WARS.
