GameCube is the least expensive and the titles tend to be more kid and family friendly. My 14 yr old enjoys his, but right now he's frantic for X-Box just for Halo 2.

I have a PS2 and an X-Box. there is a wider selection of games in general for the PS2 - it's been out the longest. Plus, the backwards compatability is good, since i had a ps1.
The XBox has a built in hard drive, so you need no extra equipment to SAVE games. the ps2 you need to buy a memory card. this sort of off-sets the DVD controller argument, if you want to save your games.
aside: the reason you have to buy a separate controller for the XBOX dvd is a licensing issue. Since Sony developed DVD technology, MS has to pay them a licensing fee based on how much the DVD-option costs. if it were built in, they'd pay based on the (approx) $150 fee for the whole box. This way, they only have to pay on the $20 adapter. At least, that's the story i heard.
