Wow, that is weird. Of course, given the choice between a Wii, a PS2, and an Xbox 360, I'd take the 360 any day of the week. And maybe it was just easier to take than the computers. Or maybe your 360 itself took the wi-fi adapter, the game, and the controls and ran away (perhaps he was getting tired of having his named spelled "X" hyphen "box" instead of an "Xbox"). At least they didn't take any of your other games, as the system can be replaced relatively inexpensively, but games tend to add up in price quite rapidly, expecially if you have a few fairly recent titles in there. On a strangely related note, I just recently found out that Xbox's and 360's all have personal given names. Weird eh? It will show up on a few old Xbox games, such as the original Halo while in multiplayer. I know feel a much closer bond with my 360 now that I now his name, which it just so happens turns out to be a really cool name.
On to the discussion of IGN's list,
"Any list that ends in the words "of all time" is doomed."
I wouldn't say all such lists are "doomed". I think most people look at those kind of lists exactly as they are intended to be looked at, as entertainment and something to be considered and perhaps even discussed, rather than leave with the feeling that the makers of the lists are trying to declare themselves gods and are attempting to carve into stone the definitive best whatevers of all time. I notice a lot of people get bend out of shaped and pissed off every time they hear the words "top however many of all time", I noticed via the youtube discussions that many PS3 fans have gotten really bent out of shape over this particular list. Obviously the best "anything of all time" is very subjective, and should never be taken as a cause for offense, but rather with a grain of salt. I thought this particular list, however, was very well thought out, (the criteria included the influence on the market it had during its time, how they revolutionized the industry, as well as the kind of influence it had on the list makers during their childhoods).
I felt #1 and #2 on the list were very appropriately choosen, one having been kind of the last gasp of a dying market and the other representing the rebirth of that same market. I was pleased to see PS2 and SNES in the top five, I still feel that they are two of the finest systems every designed. Every generation seems to have that one system that just clings on and will not let go well into the next gen. I remember back when SNES were being clearanced for $49.99 and selling like mad well into the PSX/N64 era, and now we have the PS2, released an impressive nine years ago (hard to believe it has been that long) still being sold and having new games released on it.
