    What games made you have that "must get" feeling for a console?

    One of my favorites is Final Fantasy X and the PS2. Back before I had one, I'd gone to my brother's apartment for other reasons. One of his roomates(and future brother-in-law)had rented a PS2 and a couple games. So I got to sit and watch him play FFX for a bit. After I left that night I knew had to have a PS2 and FFX.

    Xbox - got it free, no game really enticed me at first... Later, the system-seller would have been Deus Ex
    PS1 - Twisted Metal and Warhawk
    PS2 - Dark Cloud
    PS3 - Resistance
    360 - Oblivion

    Genesis - Altered Beast and Space Harrier
    Sega Master System (this is my favorite one) The commercials to Phantasy Star 1. Didn't know what it was but I knew I wanted it.
    NES - Super Mario Brothers
    Jaguar - No comment
    3d0 - Road Rash
    PSP - Twisted Metal, and Wipeout
    DS - nothing, until Way later in the form of Revant Wings, and only because it was the sequel to my favorite FF
    Wii - nothing yet, which is why I don't own one.
    SNES - Almost everything at launch, lol, even Pilot Wings
    N64 - Mario Obviusly, but the notion that a 3D zelda was coming soon, so I bought an N64 based on a game that didn't exist.
    32X - Star Wars
    Sega CD - Silpheed and Lunar

    Hmm...if I had to list a game for most consoles it would be:

    SNES - Super Mario World
    N64 - Mario 64
    PSX - FF7
    PS2 - FF10
    DS - Castlevania DoS

    No game this generation sold me, that's for sure.

    Ditto, and it was also the main reason I finally caved and bought a PS3. I didn't want to miss out whenever GoW 3 finally comes out.

    I got the Wii for Zelda and Brawl

    My friend says that he's bought a PS2 and sold it 3 times because he wanted it only for one game each time that he bought one. Right now he's borrowing my other friend's and renting it, but he got GH3 and Madden 09 for it, so he doesn't really know what to do with the games when the other guy wants it back since the other guy doesn't really want them
