I've been pondering for weeks should I buy one or just buy the Wii on the 19th. So I thought to myself today should I buy one and if I do, I might regret it. But once I saw the review for Gears of War, my second guessing days were over. Jumped in my car and headed for Walmart. I was utterly shocked to find out they didn't have Gears of War. I was irate and I was just about to lose it. So I bought the system (came with GRAW & Arcade unplugged) and picked up Perfect Dark Zero. Plus I was extremely excited that PDZ was only $30 CDN. Plan on buying GoW and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion sometime down the road. Also I finally found the FFXII strategy guide, so I bought that as well. In the end I think I made the right decision and on top of that a hot Walmart chick carried my 360 to the door.
It looks like a very riveting and entertaining system, but is it intricate or intuitive ? Will I regret my decision ?
Can't wait for Halo 3.

Halo 2, Half-Life 2, FarCry, GTA: SA, NG, UT04, and Burnout 3. Were all great games, but IMO this was the greatest game of 2004.
- It had some of the coolest Boss battles in a game EVER.
- The story is one of my favorite, right behind FFVII, FFX, MGS, and Chrono Cross.
- Had the best story and Characters for a game in 2004.
- The cinematics and graphics were mind blowing.
- This one was greater then it predecessors.
- Solid Snake is one of the best character in the VG world.
- and so many more reasons......
I will remember this game as long as I live.
