I am definitely keeping mine. I have spent a good portion of my life on that system, (thought not nearly as much as on the SNES and N64) and it means a lot to me. Besides, I'd much rather play GCN games on my Cube and not on the Wii, It's annoying having to use the wii remote to select the game before you can actually play it. Nintendo should really release an update for the Wii that allows you to use the GCN controller on the Wii menu, or just automatically plays the game if you put in a Gamecube game.

Of course I kept it, I have a small but precious Nintendo hardware collection, how would that work without my beloved purple GameCube? Besides, is the console I have most games for, and I also got the tiny LCD screen that fits on top of it, so I can play it wherever I want.
Btw, those updates sound great ;).

I kept mine just in case my Wii broke. Which it did so at least I can still play GC games.

I rule when it comes to games. So deal with it.

I still got it, but haven't used it in years. I find it more useful just using my Wii for GC-games.

Like you, Twilight Crow, it is also the system for which I have the most games. I have 48 Gamecube games so far, and 12 Wii games (I think). I have 38 N64 games, but my mom gave away my SNES! Most of the reason I'm keeping it is because I'm a completist, and the GC means a lot to me. The rest is just because I don't play GC games on the Wii is because it's not convenient.

I've kept (an will keep) my GameCube, along with all the games I have for it. I don't see much point in selling it; We'd only get around $20-$50 for it. In my mind, it's not worth it.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

In case my Wii cracks (shudder), or if I want to set it up in another room.

lol. I still have my Gamecube. I clean the thing every week. I use it as a collectable if not a game system.

I still have mine, but it's so old and overused that it only works half the time. Any game I put in is a crapshoot. It really annoyed me when I got to the second disk in ToS. I'd put it in, and it woudn't work, and then the game would shut down. I was stuck there for weeks.

I bought a GC after I bought my Wii even though I don't own a single GC game. I got one with a Gameboy Player just for playing my GB and GBA collection on it.

I gave my Gamecube to my mother. She loves playing Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon. Now that she's disabled, it gives her something to do.

I sold mine to buy 12 fifths of vodka for my Spring Break senior year about 5 or 6 years ago. I missed out on some good games due to my drinking habits at the time :(

The word "Gem" is overused.

@theblackdragon: Yep, very cheap. I think it may have been around 5 dollars a bottle. I think I got 60 dollars for my gamecube :) Edit: may have been 75, can't remember.

@Josh
That is the best line I ever heard about drinking. Nobody else admits anything bad that happened to them while drinking. They just say they screwed around. But man that sucks you sold it. I feel your pain of loss. My last Gamecube tore up while I was in High School.
