I'm really thinking I want an XBox 360. Games like "Gears of War" are just incredible looking, and have gotten lots of rave reviews. Is it worth it? Should I get one? Maybe for Christmas or something. We've got the PS2 and the Gamecube, but I just feel like the newer stuff is a big step up, and there are some things that I might actually consider it worth it for...

I guess I need to look more into what I actually want. I haven't heard anything positive about the PS3, and I'm not mobile enough to want to get something like a PSP, which I would seldom play. I suppose it might be fun to have a Wii, if for no other reason than with kids, having something that's more stand up and physical for playing would be interesting.

I know I have some gamers on my friends list: what do you think? Should I gat a 360? Should I get a Wii? Should I get neither? Should I just buy some new games for the PS2 or gamecube? I guess it probably depends what type of games I want to play: it seems like the 360 doesn't really offer much interesting stuff over the Xbox except in the form of First Person Shooters. (Can the 360 play Xbox games?)

Maybe this isn't worth it -- I don't know if I'm a serious enough gamer to make any of it worthwhile. Maybe I should just figure out how to get Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 installed and running on some hardware I own: that would certainly be an interesting one to have around, and would probably be much more of a timesink than anything else I can think of.
