and also, i agree... a fighting game is, on the surface, a very shallow experience...but they typically have so much depth that it totally justifies the price. i was looking at my brawl stats earlier today and ive got like 1500 games played (each takes an average of 5 minutes i'd say)...(btw, that comes out to be like 125 hours). ya, it was TOTALLY worth it (btw, brawl+ is amazing)...and i know that doesn't even touch the amount of time ive put into melee, counter strike, quake, halo, halo 3, or even perfect dark from when i was a kid.
My 360 is broked anyway, if I have to buy a new console again then fuck it. I'll buy a ps3 this time around, I've played most of the console specific games I wanted to and now I have a good computer too. I do plan on getting the 360 again, I just don't plan on paying very much for it, at all.
