Topic: Greatest Game cube games?

Posts 1 to 20 of 53


What are the gamecube games that you find to be the greatest? Mine are Super mario sunshine, luigi's mansion, paper mario the thousand year door, Super smash bros. melee, and Sonic adventure DX Director's cut. To be honest, I haven't played that many gamecube games.



I have a hard time deciding between Metroid Prime, Animal Crossing, and Mario Kart Double Dash.

Just for you.

I think the Resident Evil series peaked with 4 on the GameCube. I've owned every Mario Kart, but Double Dash was always my favourite. It might be to do with the people I played it with though. Good memories. I loved Wind Waker too.

Couldn't agree more.I think it was one of lowest scoring Mario Karts but it was my 2nd favourite. I also really enjoyed having 2 racers per kart, and don't forget that main theme!

My top GCN games in no order; SSBM, Wind Waker, Wave Race, F-Zero GX, MK:DD, 1080 Avalanche, RE:4, WWE: Day of Reckoning 2, MP2: Echoes & Super Mario Sunshine.

The ones that immediately come to mind for me are Super Mario Sunshine, TLoZ: Wind Waker, and Metroid Prime. The last one is better with Wii controls imo, but it's a darn fine game any way you look at it.

Metroid Prime and games that are sadly not Metroid Prime.*

*Viewtiful Joe, Wind Waker, RE4 and of course Melee.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

Aside from the basics you'll get, Mario Sunshine, Smash Bros. Melee, Wind Waker, Metroid Prime 1 + 2, Thousand Year Door, Pikmin, etc., here are some I grew up with or played recently that are fantastic.

-Animal Crossing Population Growing: This game actually released on the N64 in Japan, and was ported over to Gamecube, and it's perfect. It's my favorite of the Animal Crossing games (New Leaf may top it, though) plus there's more than a dozen NES titles you can collect! It adds incentive to keep playing.

-Resident Evil 4: One of the greatest games I've ever played.

-Viewtful Joe: Great game, haven't played it too much but highly recommend it.

-Billie Hatcher and the Giant Egg.

Super Mario Sunshine
Super Smash Bros Melee
Luigis Mansion
Legend of Zelda Windwaker
Mario Kart Double Dash
Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door
Animal Crossing
Sonic Adventure 2 Battle
Mario Party 4-6 (Shut Up these games hold a lot of nostalgia for me. Though I dislike 7.)

Those are my top faves. The Gamecube was actually the first Nintendo console I owned. I had the Playstation One first because when shopping for a new game console for Christmas that year, my parents (knowing NOTHING about gaming so its not their fault) were led to believe that the PS1 was superior and held better value for a child as young as I and that it was "easier to understand" than the N64 by the store clerk. So because of that, I missed out on Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Smash Bros and other amazing titles. Quite disappointing. But My parents eventually bought an N64 when I was 14, so I at least got to live it while I was still relatively young.

But anywho, yea Gamecube is freakin incredible. It should've been the leader that generation. Best controller ever produced by Nintendo no doubt in my opinion.

No one's listing Sonic adventure DX? Geez! I'm surprised! That game is the best sonic game in my opinion. Multiple storylines and awesome bosses make the game great.
