I myself still love cartridges the best. Especially my n64 games, since there is no loading in just about all of the games!! If CD's had no loading, my vote would be on it, but the voting just gets to the extreme sometimes.

One example:

WWF Attitude For PSX ( 2-5 Minutes of Loading )
WWF Attidude For N64 ( NO LOADING )

So whats your vote, cartridge or cd?

Carts are the best not only for the reason you stated Gamecop, but also because theyre easier to clean.
Get a dirty cart or connection and it just needs a wipe with a cotton bud - but get a dirty lens and in my experience you can never really clean it properly just prolong its life a little, innevitably it needs replacing.
This is especially true if you are a smoker or live in a smoking household.

The only point in favour of CDs is the size - easier for storage.

Believe it or not, I actually prefer Cds. Cds are easier to obtain and they have their own separate cases. CDs tend to have better and funner gameplay then cartridges b/c cartidges have limited space, but CDs dont. The only problems with CDs is that they can get scratched, broken, data loss, etc, But thats why they made the CD burner right ? :lol:

Cartridges. They add more wieght to the package so it "feels" like you are getting more.

Plus, if you get mad at the game you can throw them and even if the shell breaks you can still play the game :lol:

Carts because cartridge based machines last for AGES while cd based consoles always break down (especially Sony ones :) )

Like others have said, carts are also really tough to break and have zero load times. Woohoo!

you can have a game on a limitless amount of CDs but i dont know any game on two carts so on a cart if something dont fit in they will remove it. most importantly u can mircowave cds and make a cool lighting effect in your microwave (if you dont care about your face too much)! so in conclusion i would say i am for carts. (loading times really tick me off) :roll: :P
