Neo Geo which beat the PC engine
Super Nintendo which beat the megadrive

So now for the next 8 Qualifying rounds to see who joins them, next up is

ORIGINAL XBOX VS GAMECUBE

So hard for me to chose on this one as I loved the cube when it was released with rogue squadron and for ages had no interest in the xbox, but when I picked one up it took over as my main console at the time.

I have a soft spot for the Gamecube, but the xbox all the way for me. Really got me back into gaming in a big way.

Mind you, still got a few games lined up I never got round to playing... :oops:

One of the harder choices in these polls. I went for Gamecube, as it was one I had and played a fair amount during the generation at the time. Didn't really get an Xbox till later, although both have amazing games on them. Was amazing playing Metal Gear Solid through again in lush 6th generation Gamecube graphics.

Never owned Xbox, but did have GC with Zelda, WaveRace and Eternal Darkness, so GC wins.

Gamecube murders the XBox and leaves it face down in a ditch. So many quality exclusives (and timed exclusives). Just a console of pure fun.

I loved the Gamecube. The Xbox was a big ugly thing that did everything a PC could do.

Xbox

Unless I have to lug a crate of them (Same with PS3 normal)

The only bloody console them made that needed a "Slim" version and they never made it

Gamecube - loads of great games, brilliant (but ugly) controller, neat design

A tough choice this one.
Some wonderful games on the cube and for me it was the last good Nintendo machine. In my opinion though the games Nintendo produce have barely moved on all since the cube apart from the odd innovative control method and I have almost completely lost interest in Ninty now. Only a new Metroid proper may ignite some interest from me... anyway I digress.

The original Xbox meant more to me than the Cube in many ways and continues on in my gaming life as an emulation station. The original Xbox was the beginning of gaming communities I am a part of that still thrive today on Xbox Live. Some games that will always stay with me found my life through the original Xbox including Halo, Knights of the Old republic, Jade Empire, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Fable, Morrowind, Crimson Skies, Mech Assault, San Andreas, Project Gotham, The Chronicles of Riddick, Star Wars battlefront, Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive, Gun Valkyrie, Otogi, Stubbs The Zombie and Call Of Cuthulu to name but a few.

I've voted Xbox.

Gamecube - a much larger library of games I actually want to play , as opposed to a lot of identikit FPS crap and sports . I do however enjoy my Xbox for Emultation and some of the more interesting exclusives.

Got to be the xbox.

OH randomly bought me one when I was feeling down to cheer me up!

Installed a hard mod (worked second time after cheking the soldering!) and added emulators.

Excellent!

Was my main last go at console gaming. After it I went back to the PC. Except for the times I needed a game before it came out on PC!
