Yes! The last gaming console I owned was the original North-American version of the SNES




Anyone knows which gaming console available today has more titles with game plays similar to Agarest?

No idea what a Agrest is, but a PS3 or Xbox 360 is a solid investment if you want a huge library of games.

Well if it's game like agarest your interested in, PS3 would be a good choice, Game that comes to mind with similar gameplay would be "Disgaea" (Though it has a shittier story). Can't think of many good titles similar to Agarest for the Xbox 360.

Plus the PS3 has a lot of the exclusive JRPG series, including Tales, Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy (I know the recent FF games have been cross platform but ostof the series was Sony.

There are many more titles similar to Agarest on the Handheld consoles like the 3DS. This i coing from a huge PS3 fan but the PS3 fits your basic Criteria. I had an xbox 360 first and have definitely invested more hours into it, but now I have turned.

Hope this helps with future decision :D

Personally if you want an enjoyable relaxing and mature gaming experience just go for a PC.

Depends on the games you like. PC is probably easiest choice, though check specifications first. Most work on windows but not mac.

As for consoles, i would choose the xbox 360. more exclusives. Though it depends on which controller you prefer. Best thing is to head into a local store that has them on demo or a friends/families house and try theirs. Easiest way to know. It all comes back to which you think you'd get more out of.

I'd pick pos4 for next gen, more 1080p games, destiny exclusives and generally more interesting games.

If with Agarest, you mean Record of Agarest War. You could try Fire Emblem or Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (?).

Insane nostalgia from that SNES pic.

Though, I highly recommend a PS3. If you're interested in online play, that's the way to go as you don't have to deal with Xbox Live fees. Plus with the PS4 launching, I'm sure prices will start dropping soon (maybe, I think you can buy used PS3s for like $120 now so they may be as low as they will go for a long while). That, and I'm much more partial to the PlayStation exclusives. Some worth mentioning are Kingdom Hearts, LittleBigPlanet, and Puppeteer, but those are just some games that I really like.

i recommend either ps3 or xbox 360, (the ps4 and xbox one are new and therefore don't have many games)

the ps3 has higher amount of exclusive games, and these exclusive games are often very good, examples of good ones are infamous, littlebigplanet and god of war, unlike the PS4, PS3 don't require you to pay subscription if you want to play online.

the xbox 360 is only preferable if you like to play online and money isn't a problem. because the servers are slightly better than the playstation's server (my opinion), the xbox also have some good exclusives including halo and gears of war, (don't know much of others) iI you are low on cash, don't take the xbox 360 because it is subscription based if you want to play online. the xbox one also need subcription to play online.



personally i recommend taking the PS3, but both is fine because most games are cross-platform, and will be available on both consoles.

I don't own a PS3 and I'd only get it for JRPGs but I do have an Xbox 360 and One.

The 360 is an amazing console with plenty of games that keep me entertained. Halo, Gears of War, Fable, and so many more games. Yes there are not as many exclusives BUT cross platform games get DLC early and FPS and TPS games play much better on the Xbox compared to the PS3. Halo is a legendary game and all but Halo 2 can be bought for the 360. In fact many people buy a Xbox just to play Halo it's that good. Now don't let the paying for live get you down because they give away 2 free games ever month and Xbox has much more entertainment stuff PS3 doesn't because of the money from Live. Also Xbox One and 360 profiles share the same account so you pay the money for two systems

It all about the games. Having the latest system doesn't matter, if you don't like the games.

Thank you everyone for the opinions. And for the additional games that I can play. As for FPS, I only play those types of games on a PC. I tried playing FPS on my cousin's XBOX 360 and I can't seem to get a hang on the controls.

In my personal opinion, the best "new" home gaming console you could purchase is the Nintendo Wii U. The Wii U offers some of the very best and most fun games that are on the market right now, including Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U, The Wonderful 101, and Super Mario 3D World, In addition, third-parties that are willing to stick with the system offer some top-notch games, including Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Sonic Lost World from SEGA, DuckTales : Remastered from Capcom, ZombiU from Ubisoft, Batman: Arkham City-Armored Edition from Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment, and Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition from Namco Bandai Games.

The system also has a number of downloadable only games available from the Nintendo eShop, offering games like Dr. Luigi, NES Remix, and Wii Sports Club from Nintendo, Toki Tori 2+ from Two Tribes, and Mighty Switch Force!: Hyper Drive Edition from Wayforward among numerous others. The Nintendo eShop also offers Virtual Console games, which are digital releases of games from past systems. Currently, a selection of games from the NES and SNES are offered on the Wii U's Nintendo eShop, including Super Mario Bros., EarthBound, Super Metroid, Kirby's Adventure, Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, which launched this past Thursday. Although details are not known at the current time, it has been confirmed that Virtual Console games from the Nintendo 64, Game Boy Advance, and now Nintendo DS will be available for download from the Wii U's Nintendo eShop.

If all that wasn't enough, the Wii U is also backwards compatible with Nintendo Wii games and content, including the Wii's Virtual Console and WiiWare services, which allow access to games from other systems not supported on the Nintendo Wii U like the SEGA Genesis and Arcade, and original downloadable games for the Nintendo Wii, respectively. You'll still have to use Wii Remote controllers and accessories (sold separately) in order to play Wii games and content however.

Other factors that some consumers may enjoy about the Nintendo Wii U may include, but are not limited to, are that the system offers free online, the Miiverse online communities, the ability to connect an external hard drive up to 2 TB is size, and that users can upload in-game screenshots directly to the internet through the internet browser.

Between the Wii U itself and the Wii U's Wii Mode, the system is basically the best of all of Nintendo's systems rolled into one machine.

To top all of that off, the Wii U is gearing up for one incredible year. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze arrives later this month Mario Kart 8 has a target release date of May, Yarn Yoshi, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, Bayonetta 2, and X are all currently scheduled to be released during 2014, an all-new entry in the The Legend of Zelda series is tentatively slated for release this year, as is Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. And that's just what we know about.

Oh boy,here comes the flame war.
Honestly you can't go wrong with either the Xbox 360 or the ps3, both systems have a large library of games and both offer some kind of membership bonus towards games, the ps3 has the PS+ program where you get access to new games each month free of course, the Xbox has games with gold program where two free games a month that you can download,keep and own. Then the last big deal with most people is exclusive games for each system,it depends on what your interests are, personally owning a 360 I've really only played a handful of the consoles exclusive titles.
In the end its your money and your choice man, both consoles have great deals on bundles ATM, ex: the Xbox has a 300$ bundle with halo 4, tomb raider, one month of Xbox live,all this and the console is the 250gb WiFi model, sorry if I sound biased but this is just a great deal, anyways take Look around your local stores and check with friends that own said systems and take them for a text drive see which one you like more.
