Games that don't need a $2000 computer are better?
I got a PlayStation in fall 1997. I had a ton of fun playing Final Fantasy VII. This is the best game I have ever played and I have played a heck of a lot of games. It just came out for the PC, so soon the world will know why I gave my wife a Chocobo keychain as a major gift and why she liked it.
The PlayStation 2 looks pretty disappointing. It doesn't seem like a major leap beyond the Dreamcast. Maybe when the game designers figure the hardware out and can start pushing it... I've decided not to early-adopt this time; I'll wait and see if any of the games look like they're worth buying yet another computer-ish thing just so I can play them.
I'm in the middle of Final Fantasy XI right now, and it's pretty fun.
