Which game system??

<p>I'd like to take a game system to college, but dont want to get addicted (I am easily distracted).</p>

<p>Right now I''m leaning toward a wii, which is sucky enough to keep me focused, but has a few good games that will keep me entertained. PS3 and XBox 360 games are too engaging, am I right?</p>

<p>So...any comments/recommendations?</p>

<p>I think I'm going to haul along my $30 Gamecube with SSBM. Good times in short intervals, and boring enough to not distract me.</p>

You're sucky enough to keep you focused. Wii-hater. Go back to where ever you came from.</p>


<p>Brawl is an amazing game that is all too addictive and engaging</p>

<p>The problem is, even if you don't bring a console, everyone around you will. I didn't want to bring my Xbox 360 or Wii to college because I didn't want it to distract me from studying. Turns out everyone around me had brought theirs. I ended up playing Halo 3 every night. Now that Super Smash Bros. Brawl is out, that's pretty much all we play.</p>

<p>Get a wii!</p>

<p>great games to play with a bunch of other people.</p>

<p>I love brawl :D</p>

<p>360...is def. most popular..people play halo like their GPA depends on it.</p>

<p>Brawl is fun but you can't stop playing it. I had two homework sets due this past Friday before Spring Break and I dropped 5 hours on Brawl...</p>

<p>What does that even mean? Im not putting down the wii, it's true that there havent been nearly as many megahits as there have for other systems, and wii games usually are not so engaging as to keep you playing forever (brawl is an exception, and one of the main reasons I'm considering wii). Its more of a pick up and play type of console.</p>

That's exactly why I don't want to get an xbox 360 :)</p>

<p>I'm bringing 360 and Wii. I don't really play them too much right now, so that probably won't be a problem for me. Then again, I'm not into Halo or any of those engaging games like that. PC Games are the real life suckers.</p>


<p>The only game you can every need is Brawl, and Brawl (like all the other Wii games) is only fun if you have friends over. If you needed to study, you wouldn't have friends over in the first place, allowing you to have fun when you want to and studying when you need to.</p>

<p>My boyfriend likes Wii games because are less time intensive. He can pick one up and put it down easily without being sucked into playing for ridiculous amounts of hours.</p>

<p>I'm probably going to bring a wii and ps2, not too concerned about getting addicted as I haven't been spending tons of time gaming in past few years. Been wasting tons of time browsing the internet though, I'm more worried about that.</p>

<p>none. they ruin your life.</p>

<p>^ You must be pretty boring haha</p>

<p>Just do drugs, life becomes one big video game. And you meet cooler people.</p>

<p>or you can take pleasure in reading ooohhhhh.... FUN</p>

<p>Wii...... Brawl all the way</p>

<p>Pscchhh. I'd rather play PC games.</p>

<p>The real question is what are you looking to get out of a video game system?</p>

<p>If you just want something to play with friends from time to time, the Wii is hands-down the best party system. It may not have Halo 3 or Rock Band (you can get Guitar Hero), but of the 3 next-gen consoles it is easily the most friendly to non-gamers, and it still has a solid base of good single-player games.</p>

<p>Mostly, the Wii has a different sort of game from the 360/PS3. Where they are generally more focused on huge 30-hour epics and intense first-person shooters, the Wii is more oriented towards party games (although the 360 and PS3 both have their fair share of lighter games and the Wii has plenty of more 'hardcore' games).</p>
