I don't miss it because I still play Gamecube games on the Wii. Actually, my sister and I have been playing first-party Gamecube games we've missed, such as Kirby Air Ride and Mario Superstar Baseball. A few days ago I played Mario Party 5 and revived a ton of memories of when I played Mario Party 4-7 and how much fun I had with those.

Luigi's Mansion, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Mario Sunshine, and Wario World are some of my favorite first-party games for it along with the Mario Party games. As far as third-party, it was definitely the Sonic Adventure remakes. Unfortunately, being a kid at the time, I wasn't good at judging shovelware, so I bought and played some licensed games and sub-par games I shouldn't have. However, SpongeBob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom is surprisingly good, so I'm glad I bought it again after selling it years ago.

If you miss the Gamecube so much then buy one at a store or pay it on the Wii. I do both. Derp. :p

Oh, I missed it alright. I was not wasting my time with Nintendo's worst selling console.

I was playing a real console, at least that is what I thought back then.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

"Yeah! I'm gonna play Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly on my Wii U today!

Wait a second..."

I have an actual GameCube, though, so I guess I'm OK. Regardless, I will miss it a lot even though it was certain.

I love my Gamecube. Still have it hooked up at home. If I get a survival horror urge, I'll put in Eternal Darkness or REmake and be in heaven (or hell, depending on how you look at it). And I have Metroid Prime for my adventuring needs.

God, the original controller for that thing is awful. SO FAT.

Yes, I miss corded controllers, buying those $.10 double A battery packs for my beloved wavebird, corrupted saved data, as many droughts as the Sahara desert in a five year time span and the lack of online multiplayer, consistent third party support, AAA titles from Nintendo post 2004 and no DVD format.

I miss those days.

Just for you.

Favorite Games: Sonic CD, Sonic 3 and Knuckles, Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland, and Call of Duty: Black Ops, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, and Mega Man 5.

I couldn't stand the original XBOX...It's big fat bulky obese western controller, roster of shooter heavy Bro fests, and so fourth
comepletely turned me off. It's probably my least favorite console of all time. Frick, the coolest game to ever appear on that console was Voodoo Vince.lol However I'm starting to appreciate the Gamecube a lot more these days. It aint no Nes, Wii or SNES but it completely obliterates the N64....

You just love bringing in the positive don't you.

I only had a GBA at this point but I will tell you this. The GC controller was good but it's no modern day Classic controller. Have't tried the Wii U one yet but the only thing the Wii one misses is a rumble feature. The button placement on the GC controller was a little, weird.

Chrono may be a bit negative, but he's Sunshine & Lollipops compared to Aviator. :p

There were some games that made it worth owning (or at least not suck quite as much). Panzer Dragoon Orta, Morrowind, Fable, Ninja Gaiden Black, Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams (the definitive version of the game due to some cool upgrades), and of course both Knights of the Old Republic games were all fantastic. I'm sure there are other great non-Bro shooter games on there. Still, the few gems it did acquire just couldn't let it compete with the PS2. The PS2 rivals the SNES for having the greatest game library of the last twenty years. The Gamecube also had a much larger number of great, truly exclusive games.

Still remember the day when I first played that thing...Melee was the best launch title ever. :p (and still. >_>)
That said, only thing I really miss about that thing is the logo's animation. Kinda wished Nintendo had done something like that with the 3DS and Wii U, but ah well.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

I loved my GC. It had one or two JRPGs and some fun multiplayer games.

Then I got a PS2 and I don't think I touched the GC again, aside for a brief stint with Baten Kaitos

Yeah I still think it's the best controller ever. It fit perfectly into your hands and was perfect for melee.
