    Horrible quality list. Not that the picks were bad, but they could embed youtube videos, or have enlarge-able pics?

    People should leave list-making to Cracked.

    That would have worked better had they shown actual gameplay pictures of the games now, compared to games back then.

    It baffles me how you show what looks like an in-game shot of a racing game back then, but you don`t show a proper in-game shot of a game now.

    It just doesn`t work when you have a gameplay shot of a game from 1998, then you throw something from a trailer or a touched up promotional picture of a recent game. :/

    How is Microsoft "king of the hill"?
    They`re selling the least amount of consoles right now (yes, less than the PS3), and the total sales, first year sales, first month sales, and first week sales were all surpassed by the Wii. And probably the first day sales too.

    Wow... I don`t think I could choose worse examples of games and screenshots, even if I tried? How about Mario? Who`s ever heard of Duke Nukem of whatever it`s called.

    And as for Microsoft being King of the game market... Just about every word in that sentence is wrong. How can being around for about 4 years, and releasing a few over-rated games and cheap faulty consoles make you king? Sony ftw.

    Luka, just because you haven`t heard of Duke Nukem forever doesn`t mean nobody else has..

    I disagree with the microsoft being king statement. last console generation was PS2, the generation is in the 360`s favor, but the faultiness has proved a definate issue, i prefer PS3, before you start insulting me, i do have both

    I think the PS3 and the 360 are equal in a sense. The PS3 has better graphics, i would say, but the 360 has more games. The Wii just plain sucks, except for Metroid.

    Nothing compares when- sometime in the 90`s my husband`s nephew was whining about how the graphics weren`t THAT great on his new Star Wars game. We were babysitting that night & busted out the Atari & the Empire Strikes Back game.

    "You know sonny-boy, back when I was a kid we didn`t have all these fancy graphics..."
