My computer needs a new graphics card to play games again, but I already beat HL2 and Tribes Vengance was getting boring. So while shopping for a new video card I start thinking, hmm should I get a console instead? I've got nothing to do here at my new home other than watch tv, movies, read a book, and play video games. I've already started reading more than I did at home and as long as I pick good books that will continue but TV is just boring most of the time and movies cost too much for the 2 hours you get out of them. If I had a job where spending $20 on a new DVD or $4 on a few rentals wasn't an issue that would be great. But out of all of them playing a good video game seems the best option. So what console should I consider? I'm leaning towards buying a GameCube. There is a new Zelda game coming out(I loved Ocarina of Time), it has Tony Hawk's Underground 2, Resident Evil 4 will be GC exclusive. But PS2 has the Final Fantasy series and the Gran Turismo Series as well. Buying a PS2 and a GC would be ideal but not happening right now. Maybe later.
