Just got a Gamecube, again.

Post by donnonotin » Tue Nov 21, 2006 3:53 am

I already have Super Smash Brothers Melee, Mario Party 5, and Resident Evil 4. Anyone have some suggestions on some other good GCN games? I'm thinking I also want to pickup Pokemon XD and Animal Crossing.

Mario Kart is good. Viewtiful Joe. Day of Reckoning if you're into wrestling games. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I liked Mario Sunshine. Can't really think of anything else at the moment.

^ Yes! I'm not really a fan of the Zelda games but I played this one for hours on end. I think I nearly finished, but I haven't picked it up since. :oops:

i was even one that bitched about what wind waker looked like, but found it very enjoyable. i never bought it, just borrowed it from a friend, and beat it over a weekend that i didnt have to work. major gripes:
1. very linear, like no sidequests at all
2. final boss is pathetic
3. only 3 full dungeons, 4th was obvioiusly removed.

Ahh, Paper Mario is a personal Favorite. All of these are great games, I wish that I didn't sell mine and all my games in the first place.

The Pikmin games are fun, as are the donkey konga and jungle beat bongo games. And let;s not forget Eternal Darkness. one of the most underrated cube game of this console cycle.

I started off hating sunshine when I first played, but eventually grew to love it. I also dig Luigi's Mansion, even though its short.


I have two cubes, and have also modded the l.e.d. in both. With the silver one, I added a blue one and for the black, I wanted to do something different and put an ultra violet one in, but it ended up looking too blue.

luigis mansion, fzero gx, PN03, Mario Kart (of course), Mario Golf is also fun...

and all those games can be picked up cheap too (maybe not mario kart, but the others you should have no prob finding for ~10$)

Uh... you're forgetting the most underrated Gamecube title EVER - Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem. It's not much to look at, but it's one hell of a game.

In this town It will probably be impossible to find the Wii for a long time. Also the price difference. So far I'm being reminded of a lot of games. PPL would always hate on Super Mario Sunshine and Wind Waker. But they both tear ass IMO.. I really need money.

I haven't forgotten because I mentioned it already.


I also must recommend Resident Evil 4; I'm not a fan of the franchise, and I loved it more than others.

NBA Streetz Volume 2. Way better than 3 and an improvement on the original.
