    I'd like to see this thread moved over to Modern Gaming for it to receive maximum exposure.

    It could use a little more detail, but I think he did his best, though.

    It is a dark horse candidate for post and thread of the year. Thus I will vote on it as such.

    Come on now, everybody. Responses in the Lore forum are supposed to provide constructive criticism. Granted, hbkprm's entry doesn't give one a lot to work with in a constructive manner but I think the point is made that it's too short. Let's give the wisecracks a rest, yes?

    @hbkprm: You could provide a little more detail about the Cube, such as why you had to wait and how you felt when you finally got it after the extra wait time. Try to build it up some more.

    The only real criticism I have is that this needs to be about a classic system to make it into the book. I wrote mine on the Dreamcast but that was only because this forum was put up here, I never intended for my Lore story (now on Page 3) to make the book. I just figured putting mine here while this subforum was up would be a better alternative than having it get buried after 24 hours in Classic Gaming. It was a story I always wanted to share.

    If he were adding to it, a good place to start would be X-Mas of 2003. Did he ask someone to get it for him? When he didn't get it, how did he feel? What gifts did he get instead? Then he could fill in the blanks from there.

    Better yet, it should become a full blown book with a bunch of different stories about how other people got their cube.

    I'm not making fun, though, hbkprm's a good cat. I just liked the first post.

    "Digital Press Collector's Guide: round the xmas of 03, i wanted a gamecube but didn't get it untill a relitive passed away round the following easterthat when i got the cube"

    That might be too long to fit on the cover. We'll have to abreviate.

    Anyway, I'll share my Gamecube story as well (I know is had no chance to get in the guide, but I want to share why I hate the Gamecube).

    Around the summer of 2001, I was reading about Gamecube at Nintendo's website, thinking it'll be the best thing since sliced butter. Then November came, and no matter how much I complained about how lame the N64 was compared to Gamecube (I was a blind fanboy, and the N64 was automatically lame because it was now old), my parents refused to buy me one. They where considering a PS2 more because it's backward compatible with PSX (Good...but I have an N64, not a PSX), but because of how much my sister & I argued over which is better, so they desided they won't get either one.

    I didn't get one for Christmas or even a GBA (At least I got Super Smash Bros. for my N64). I asked every year (Even the year they had the $80 system bundle that had the Zelda compliation).

    In 2005, I desided to save up my money and get a Gamecube, and by December, I had won a Gamecube on eBay for only $60. Although I only had Luigi's Mansion, I eventually added on Super Smash Bros. Melee. But things took a turn for the worse...

    In January 2006, I bought Super Mario Sunshine, and everything changed. The game was so shitty...so stupid, I was back to the N64 in no time. I held out and tried Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, but it was worse (Piss-poor camera compared to Dreamcast version). I just couldn't find anything I liked for Gamecube other then SSBM and Zelda, because most everything else was better on other systems (Phantasy Star Online, Sonic Adventure, Lego Star Wars, Soul Calibur II, Resedent Evil 4, etc.).

    Later that year, I sold the Gamecube to my sister along with all the games & controllers for the same price I paid: $60. The money went towards more PS2 & Dreamcast stuff.

    However, I bought a Wii in April 2007, and took back my Wavebird and SSBM, and started to build up the very few GCN games I like (Mainly the Zelda games and PSO). I still stand by the fact the Gamecube had very few games worth playing (N64, Sega CD, Odyssey2, 3D0, and CD-i all had more then GCN)
