Games That You Bought A Console For



  • Wii - Smash
    DS - Pokemon Pearl
    WiiU - Smash 4
    PS4 - Bloodborne
    3DS - Pokemon Y

    After this I started looking for older consoles and these were the key games i got for those systems:

    GCN - SSBM (<3)
    Master System - Sonic 1/2
    PS2 - Shadow of the colossus
    N64 - Ocarina of time
    SNES - Chrono Trigger



  • I never buy a console for just one game, it's gotta have at least 5 must own games and likelihood for more. I own a PS4 because I always have had playstation and they tend to release the games that I like, but I will say in general I want the system I will get more RPGs for, it's why I have a 3ds as well. I would have got a PS4 anyway, but yeah Persona 5 helped that decision, as well as KH3, FFXV, Bloodborne, and Last Guardian.



  • Dreamcast - Shenmue



  • NDS - Gyakuten Saiban 4 (A.K.A Ace Attorney 4 in western)
    PSP - Monster Hunter Freedom 2
    PS2 - Persona 3
    PS3 - MGS4
    PS4 - Uncharted
    And 3 months ago I got my WIIU, haven't bought any game for it yet I am just waiting for the Zelda WIIU and now I am told that the NX one will be the real one. How s Stupid I am.

    • Xbox Jet Set Radio Future (UTTER REGRET of buying the Xbox. Still collecting dust)

    JSRF is a little weird and clunky at times, but still an amazing experience! What's your problem with it?

    Other good titles (aside from Halo) for the Xbox:

    Project Gotham Racing 2
    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
    Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions
    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (Featuring the exclusive "Oil Rig" level)
    Tony Hawk's Underground (Remember, multiplats on the Xbox have the best graphics)
    Blood Wake
    RalliSport Challenge 2
    Burnout Revenge (Better Crash mode than the 360 version)
    Steel Batallion (Pricey, but dat controller... o_0)

    I bought an Xbox One for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. This happened, and Microsoft doesn't even mention the game anymore. The "Xbone" then remained a glorified Blu-ray player until Dirt Rally came out (which is a bit simulation for my taste, but it looks beautiful, and I'm getting used to it).

    I also bought a Wii U at launch primarily for Pikmin 3, but also knowing that Zelda plus other great first party titles would certainly come too (which they did).



  • Thing that stood out to me when I saw the subject was Wii U. Bought the Wii U only so I could play Bayonetta 2. Still have only played Bayonetta 2 and maybe 1 hour of Mario Kart on my Wii U.

    Pikmin 3?
    Splatoon?
    Super Mario Maker?
    Smash 4?
    Wind Waker HD?
    Twilight Princess HD?
    The Wonderful 101?
    Xenoblade Chronicles X?
    Metroid Prime Trilogy?
    Virtual Console games?
    Wii BC games?
    Indie eShop games?



  • I bought a Sega Saturn at launch for Daytona USA & Virtua fighter. It was a different time when arcade games were all the rage. In hindsight I should have got a ps1 (which I did a couple of years later)



  • I originally got my PS3 specifically to play Final Fantasy Versus XIII......yeah, that didn't work out so well.

    No to all of them.

    You haven't played them or don't want to?

    Because if it's the latter, then that's a little sad.

    I mean, I dislike Sony consoles, but there are still a few games on them that interest me.

    Bayonetta and Mario Kart...man... :(

    I believe I also bought a Wii U on a whim for Super Smash Bros. (I think getting NSMB & Wind Waker HD for free were also big factors.) I wanted to play with my friend since I didn't have many multiplayer games at the time. I of course played unfairly as Rosalina for about a week before we both got bored of it.

    The Wii U might be the only console I've ever sold. It was collecting lots of dust so I thought it would be better in the hands of someone that would actually play it. Sold it for like $300 with 5 or 6 games.



  • The new Zelda is going to make me buy a console. The question is what one I will get. NX is going to have to have more compelling software than the Wii U did. If there is nothing else compelling I will prolly buy a Wii U to play it.



  • I think every single handheld Nintendo device I've ever got has been solely to play Pokemon. Also Wii Sports was the only game we had for our Wii for almost 4 years and no one complained because bowling.



  • @Oscillator I have no problem with Jet Set Radio Future .. It's just I regret buying the Xbox. I only used it for that.

    I just realized that I also have an Xbox 360... Not sure why I even bought that. lol



  • @Mr-M Oh.. you've reminded me that's the exact reason I got a Gameboy Colour. For Pokemon Silver and my brother got Gold. Those were the only 2 games we ever bought for it.



  • @Robbl said in Games That You Bought A Console For:

    Wii U for the new Zelda. But guess on which console it's gonna have improved visuals.

    Same. I got a WiiU in that tiny windo of time last year, right after Nintendo said the new Zelda would come out in 2015, and right before they mentioned the NX. Still, the WiiU is a good console, but I would have liked to play the better version of Breath of the Wild.
    At least I can sleep easy knowing BotW will be re-released with a better coat of paint in a decade or so.



  • @Oscillator Of course I would want to play them. But with the fact that I have a job that takes up 10+ hours per day and I have to do other things everyday, I have to prioritise what games to play if any and the Nintendo games has been very low on that list.

    I now tend to focus more on smaller more story focused games. The episodic thing is awesome since it means I can put in 5 hours in a week and actually finish games.



  • Most people bought an Xbox for Halo. Halo eventually became one of my favorite game franchises, but as a Star Wars fan I actually bought the system to play Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It was a great decision.



  • N64

    I had the n64 lego racer game weeks before i got the console for some reason when i was like 8. I've never been more hyped to play something since and i still have great memories of that game. It might suck i have no idea. Would be curious to know any opinions of anyone who played that game as an adult.

    Xbox

    Halo of course, i had the pc version first and my dads PC crashed while (because in his opinion) i was playing it

    360

    Elder Scrolls IV. Loved that game to death. Most hours i ever put in to a single game, at least a 1000.

    Xbone

    I was playing Shadow of Mordor on 360 and it worked like shit mostly because it had too load for about 10 seconds every f'ing time you opened the menu so it was time to get a new console. I got the one because of the halo nostalgia hype i got from mcc. I regret not switching to playstation because of the exclusives i would like to play the main one being bloodborne. So i will probably get the neo.

    That turned out to be a really long winded answer i don't expect anyone to read
