Game Consoles. Nintendo GameCube Review

Game Consoles are the best way to enjoy games. When they were created – years ago – I was very skeptical: I played games on my PC and it was just fine, I had no need for a console.

I changed my mind when I saw what these things can do. Consoles offer better graphic; they are faster than a computer and have a lot of cool accessories.

They are designed just for games and you will feel that when you use a console.

Now the most known manufactures are: Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. My favorite is Nintendo. I love both Wi and GameCube.
