    Yep, I don't play video games anymore because I'm not willing to shell out 300 bucks for a new system. I'll just take my real car out on the road and drive if I feel like it :approve:

    Gamecube dont have these graphics.

    I've heard that the upcoming PS3 is going to cost about 600$ and it comes with a 60 GB hard disk. With that much money I guess you can almost buy a used car !

    I personally love the Grand Theft Auto series from the third installment onwards . Has just the right mix of everything.

    To run the graphically intense games shown above on a PC, I guess you need to buy good graphics cards as well, which can still cost a fortune .

    I have been astounded at the pace of graphics development recently. I wonder if its anything to do with all those Shrek type movies. Anyway the best looking I found so far for all you FPS fans is the new Crysis game. if you google that I promise amazement will ensue.

    First there was...

    Then Atari's Night Driver came along...

    Zelda's great, but I think the game of last century was Super Mario .
    Anyone here who hasen't played the game ?
