Name your top ten or must have games for all three systems.

I already own a PS2 and I may have the oppurtunity in May to pick up both a Gamecube and a X-Box for free. I am looking for some good titles to consider and possibly pick up. I realize it all depends on what type of games you play, but I am just looking for a broad range because I don't know what games will be available for me to pick from.

Unfortunately I don't think so. The Vegas trip is already booked and I don't even know if there really is the shopping spree this time. So far unsubstantiated rumors. But if something opens up I will let you know

Give me a break...


For the cube:

Metroid Prime
RE
RE0

Not a Zelda player myself, but it has gotten great reviews.

Mario if you like that type of game...

I picked up eternal darkness but haven't cracked it open yet, but I have heard great things about it too.

Gamecube: Metriod, Zelda Wind Waker, Mario Sunshine
PS2: Grand Theft Auto3, GTA: Vice City, Gran Turismo 3
Xbox: Halo, Panzer Dragoon Orta, MechAssault

Seems about right to me.
