human evolution mirrored that of video games, we’d all have
wings and communicate via telepathy. Such is the speed of progress
in the hyper-competitive world of video gaming. Whether it be Sony,
Nintendo, Microsoft, Atari, or any other Manufacturer, he who hesitates
is not only lost; he’s obsolete. Sony’s PlayStation2,
Nintendo’s GameCube, and Microsoft’s Xbox have created
a new generation of console games that’s been a boon to gamers
and retailers alike. Fighters, fantasies and sports--0h my!
the top-five sellers are role-playing games, shoot-em-ups or athletic
endeavors, according to Alex Miller of Grapevine, Texas’ Gamespot.
“Halo was one of the first games for Xbox, and is still the
same price…” Miller said of the sci-fi shooting game.
top-sellers are John Madden 2003, long considered by many to be
the top football game; and Kingdom Hearts, an action role-playing
game (RPG) created by SquareSoft and Disney Interactive.
But the future of console games, says Miller, lies somewhere in
the vast reaches of cyberspace. “Online games are going to
be the big thing,” he says. And the future is now. “PlayStation
way underestimated the demand of Socom: US Navy Seals.” Socom,
available for PlayStation2, requires a network adaptor and an Internet
connection, but once it’s hooked up you can battle someone
you’ve never even met. “If you can’t have someone
over, just log on and kick butt with someone from another state,”
however, is a concern for many parents with video-gaming kids (or
who are gamers themselves). US Navy Seals, with a network adaptor
and headset to communicate with online players, will run about $100.
Most new games will run about $50. The PlayStation2, Xbox and GameCube
consoles are still running between $150-250, so your gaming jones
could heat up your credit card if you’re not careful.
of keeping the cost down is to buy used games. Often refurbished,
these games will give you the same playing enjoyment, at a fraction
of the cost. “Used games are a good idea,” Miller said.
“It just depends on if you want the box or not. We can’t
guarantee you’ll get the box or strategy guide.” Miller
added that, with games so expensive, it’s vital to do your homework
before you buy. “Pay attention to what you’re buying.
Read reviews on a game. If you aren’t sure… rent it first.”
