A conversation Kenny and I just had that slightly changes the article below.

(4:06:30 PM) Kenny Knapke: im not sure i’d agree on the ps2 ~= GC
(4:06:56 PM) Graeme Hefner: Don’t make me choose! 😦
(4:07:07 PM) Kenny Knapke: you know what you’d pick
(4:07:15 PM) Graeme Hefner: It really is hard.
(4:07:24 PM) Graeme Hefner: All multiplatform games I played on the GCN
(4:07:32 PM) Graeme Hefner: The problem is that the GameCube’s life was really front loaded.
(4:07:44 PM) Graeme Hefner: Melee, Eternal Darkness, REmake, etc.
(4:07:53 PM) Graeme Hefner: RE4 and Path of Radiance and such game out later.
(4:08:06 PM) Graeme Hefner: But PS2 had stuff like FF12 and Shadow of the Colossus throughout.
(4:08:10 PM) Kenny Knapke: and
(4:08:11 PM) Kenny Knapke: SH3
(4:08:15 PM) Graeme Hefner: Yes.

(4:08:43 PM) Kenny Knapke: GH
(4:08:51 PM) Kenny Knapke: DDR
(4:08:52 PM) Graeme Hefner: Katamari was a really $20 game for me.

(4:09:15 PM) Graeme Hefner: Yes, fine, PS2 > GCN.
(4:09:18 PM) Kenny Knapke: not worth it i’d say
(4:09:42 PM) Kenny Knapke: i think so to
(4:10:04 PM) Kenny Knapke: i’d say the only great thing about GC was the first party games
(4:10:13 PM) Graeme Hefner: Can we at least say it was a much, much closer thing than N64 < PSX?
(4:10:19 PM) Kenny Knapke: yeah
(4:10:30 PM) Graeme Hefner: Nah, first party and Capcom games 😀
(4:10:41 PM) Kenny Knapke: PSX… gaming for people who lost their third arm!
(4:11:06 PM) Graeme Hefner: Plus it was a great place to get the best version of the multiplatform titles? Beyond Good and Evil, Prince of Persia, etc.
