    Game Boy Advance: Super Mario Advance / Pokemon Sapphire
    Gamecube: Melee
    DS: Mario 64 DS

  • I usually don't buy consoles due to any one specific game. Now I just buy them all. But I remember very vividly trying the Demo1 disc that came with the PlayStation at launch at a friends and it had a playable demo of Destruction Derby and a trailer for the original Tekken. The very next day I took all my savings and went to the store and bought a PlayStation, Tekken, Destruction Derby, extra controller and memory card. WORTH IT!
    Also I eventually bought the PS2 specifically to play Gran Turismo 4.



  • On all of these prior to this gen, it was more along the lines of games I asked on my christmas list along with the console.

  • Before I got a PC to handle gaming (and before most games were ported to the PC), I used to just always get consoles. But now, I am going to get my first current gen console (minus my Wii U) specifically for 4 upcoming games (which come out in the following chronological order): Final Fantasy XV, The Last Guardian, Persona 5, and Kingdom Hearts 3 (whenever the heck that comes out). Even if those are the only 4 games I play on that console.... I will have no regrets.
