I liked all of them. But, I'd say XB is my favorite, mostly because of Halo. Halo: CE holds the number one spot for most important game of my life. I had a ton of fun with it marathoning over thanksgiving weekend 2001 with my brother, and it helped to reignite my love for gaming.

Dang, I hate having to pick between the GC and Dreamcast, as they're both systems I loved during the gen. I had so much fun playing Smash with my childhood friends and later on college friends. There were other great games I enjoyed, like Tales, Fire Emblem and Skies of Arcadia. There was also the DC, which had the Sonic Adventure games, Power Stone 2, Grandia 2 and other fighters/rpgs. I suppose gamecube edges out, but I enjoyed a whole lot on those systems.

GameCube. It was my first console and very memorable for me.



Xbox was my favorite 6th gen console with GameCube coming in a very close 2nd, so I'd have to pick Xbox.

I'm wondering if Morrowind is a big reason for that?

Never owned a Xbox. Had a gamecube, Dreamcast and PS2. Gamecube for me. Had far more Quality games and that controller was insane.



This is a tough one for me because I didn't have any of these consoles but i played a lot of Halo at friends houses. I also had borrowed a Gamecube from a friend for a few months in high school. I'll go with the Xbox though because I preferred the controller to be honest.

Morrowind, Halo 1 & 2, Star Wars Battlefront 1 & 2, NFS Underground 2, GTA Vice City, Metal Gear Solid 2, among some others



GC by far is the best of the three. Xbox was good mainly for Halo and XBL multiplayer, while the DC was just too little too late for SEGA despite its many arcade hits and hidden gems.

Had Nintendo not designed the GC to look like a purple lunch box and focused more on features like online functionality and DVD playback like Sony and M$ did, the 6th gen would've looked completely different.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

Dreamcast was great at the time but it was so short lived it just doesn't stack up. Xbox had some great games and loved playing halo and halo 2 along with a handful of other games (especially Star Wars Battlefront). But Gamecube was by far the best. Even though it was my main system that gen, I was in college for most of its lifespan and played much more multiplayer that single player games, so I'm pretty sure I even missed out on a bunch of top notch games or only partially played through some. So hands down gamecube, it was my favorite system of the gen, including ps2 which i also got a couple years later.
