I agree that GC has some decent games....but i'll be damned if I'll sit here and listen to sega saturn bashing =P Still one of my favorite consoles of all time. N64 was a decent system....if you liked wrestling and racing games....and bad ports of pc shooters....I dunno...aside from zeldaot, goldeneye 007 and wcw/nWo : revenge....I never saw much in the system. Course I hated psone..and the only reason I had one was to play FF7...damn game turned out to be so good I kept the system to replay it about...oh...a million times.
