1. Wii (the games that were good, were really good)
2. PS3( a lot of really good games on this one)
3. 360 (Why is it popular?)

Why I like the 360: It was my first introduction into this generation and loved the controller, I had never played the original XBOX, as I had been kind of out of the loop for some time with games.

My first game I started with was Oblivion. Really enjoyed that game and achievements and pretty much played the game from beginning to end without playing much else at the time. Then I got Left 4 Dead and poured 100s of hours into the online multiplayer, which was the 1st time I ever played MP at all online...was so much fun. From there on the Xbox 360 had me hooked.

The 360 has a lot of games that appeal to my taste, whether it's FPSs, SRPGs, JRPGs, the 360 pretty much has it all. A few titles I like aren't available on the PS3 as well...Some of my favorite exclusives:

Operation Darkness
Left 4 Dead 1
Mass Effect 1
The Last Remnant
Tales of Vesperia
Deadly Premonition

For me: Controller, library, achievement system, and I like the online MP for the most part...

Each of them has a lot to offer. That's why it's nice to have all three. :)

Agreed. I just like to game, I don't really focus on what system it's for.

I'm not really a fan of any of them (for me, the 7th generation has been a massive letdown compared to the 4th, 5th, and 6th), but if I had to rank them, I'd put the Wii first for having the best selection of games, the 360 next for having the multiplats that I'm interested in as well as an exclusive that I absolutely had to have and BC emulation, and PS3 last for not having any single game that sold the console to me. They all have games I want, but it's just been a much slower generation for my tastes and values than previous gens.

L4d, mass effect, tales of vesper and recently Deadly premonition are not exclusives with three of them on the ps3 or will be very soon. I don't understand why the xbx360 is so popular.

Key word: Soon. Where have they been this entire time? I haven't seen them anywhere but the 360, and my point was that that is the system those games are currently on. BTW not counting PC.

Why not count the PC when these games can be played on a cheap $300 PC. Alan Wake. Got from steam, l4d 1 and 2. Got from steam. ME1 yup you guessed it. Got it from steam. Tales of V is on the PS3 and has been. ME1 will be on the PS3 this Dec and is rumored to be the best version. Deadly Pre is also. Coming to the PS3. This Gen is not over so any game that the PS3 gains is a plus not a negative.

I like ps3, i never found a game i really liked for the wii, and xbox just seems like a pain in the ass. Ive gotta pay to use the internet and some games have 2 discs? Wtf.

I'm going to agree with you here, the 7th gen was a letdown compared to those great generations.

All three, because I'm a gamer, not a fanboy.

All three consoles have good games. I tend not to differentiate much between the PS3 and the 360 (hence my frequent use of the term PS360) because their libraries are almost identical. I think PS360 has a significantly better library than the Wii, but the Wii has lots of good games that really deserve to be played. In fact, between Skyward Sword, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Xenoblade, and The Last Story, along with several Wii Ware games, I've put almost as much time into the Wii in the last 365 days as I have into the PS3 and the PC.

1. Xbox 360 - Most of the best games are multiplats, better controller, achievements > Trophies
2. PS3 - Best Exclusives, Blu-Ray, XMB > Dashboard, only have to pay once to use netflix.
3. Wii - uh, Xenoblade rules.
