ATTENTION: ALL Gamers on my FLIST

Okay Personal opinions to a Gamer VIRGIN...

Which system is best for Quest Adventure Games (Not Shoot 'em ups only.)
Games that require puzzle solving, riddles, the occasional blow up/slash the zombie to get to the puzzle games....
Since my MOM will be the one mainly playing these things. I'm always a backseat gamer... I love to watch.
(Like games like MYST, The Seventh Guest, Legend of Zelda, etc... Mom likes those types of games)

Which system has the best graphics and variety of games?


XBOX
PLAYSTATION
ETC...
(Or another I have no clue what's available out there. I haven't owned a game system since ATARI 400 Okay)


Why? Cause I just got a nice (and unexpected) monetary bonus for being a Good worker (Yippee! MONEY! Well AMEX gift card in the mail today...) and I want to spend it on a game system for my mom.

[EDIT] Just got off the phone with caro_t and she's convinced me the PS2 is the way to go for what mom likes to play.
I'm off to buy mommy a game system.

Christmas in July!

Wow, Atari 400? I have the 2600 series, and a shit load of games that don't fit in the case that the system goes in.... I do, however, have the PS2, which would have been my suggestion along with several long story-lined games. I also have the Super Nintendo, Nintendo, and Sega Genesis. (Can we say I typically have old classics?)

I love puzzle/thought encouraging games. I hope she enjoys the system!

Tetris is one of my favorites too! Final Fantasy X, X-2, and VIII are the ones I've played that I really liked especially graphics wise. Final Fantasy VII was crap that way. I can't say on 9, 11, or 12 since I haven't played them. However from the videos I've seen, 11 has some very good graphics.

Oh and if you want something extra, watch Yuna's eyes. Part of the time they are the same color and part of the time 1 is blue and the other is green.

Oh, don't know if it was just the ex or not, but he warned me to have an extra memory card for the games using the game shark. It somehow messed up a few of his other games and such.

Enjoy!!

I got her a memory card and she's the only one who'll play it anyway, so no worries.

Very VERY true.. PS2 is by far the best gaming console out there. No one can beat Sony when it comes to gaming consoles.

Hmmm... your Mom MIGHT like Katamari Damacy... CUTE as hell, and the whole purpose of the game is just to make a HUGE ball out of random things laying around the human world. You can't die...and I can imagine anyone playing this game while stoned.. ooooo, watch de pretty colors. X3

Me, I love Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2, Shadow Hearts 1 and 2, and Atalier Iris ^_^. Aaand of course DDR.

Speaking of Myst - someone (who's not me) has my Riven . . . .

The 'Goblins' series was good, too - they're so old now that you can't even buy them anymore, but you can download them for free.

They released MYST for the computer in an anniversary addition with all 4 worlds. Bought it for mom.
