  2. The worst way to play GameCube games

    Over the years, I've owned and played a wide variety of games consoles, but the GameCube is the one I keep returning to, and I think it's because it's the last point in console gaming history where a console was nothing more than a gaming device. It could play games, and it could do nothing else.

    I am contemplating buying an Xbox 360. This is not because I particularly want an Xbox 360, though they do hold more appeal to me now than the original Xbox ever did.
