Update: Thanks to everyone who's rated their favourites so far. This is just a wee reminder if you missed this last week. Remember, you're scoring games - as many as you like - out of 10, not picking a top 10. Very good. Carry on!


The Nintendo GameCube launched in Japan in September 2001 and a couple of months later in North America. Unlucky Europeans wouldn't get their hands on it until the following year, but the wait was worth it for one of the best-looking video game consoles of all time...

Okay, that's another poll entirely, but it's hard to deny the NGC (sorry, GCN) is a beautiful, compact piece of kit. Eschewing the jack-of-all-trades direction of its contemporaries, the console concentrated on doing just one thing well: playing games. Its striking indigo colour, big chunky 'A' button, cute little discs and infamous carry handle ultimately worked against it in an era of sleek, all-in-one multimedia machines, but it was a powerful little box of tricks that played host to a fabulous library of games. This was the last time Nintendo put itself in direct competition with Sony and Microsoft in pure spec terms before changing tack with the Wii.

Soon we'll be posting up the 50 best GameCube games ever and, as with our previous features on the best Switch games, the best 3DS games, the best Game Boy games and the best Nintendo DS games (breathe), the ranking will be entirely down to User Ratings from the Nintendo Life Games database. Readers can rate any game they like and once a minimum threshold has been reached, that game becomes eligible for the list according to its overall rating. The ranking is fluid and can fluctuate over time.

We've updated our database to include all GameCube titles and we'd love for you to rate your favourites using the specially designed tool below. Once you're logged in, simply scroll through the alphabetical list and click the star to bring up a rating of 1-10. Click to score your favourites and you're all done!

Unlike the last poll, there's only seven pages to click through with GameCube - remember you can avoid all that scrolling and clicking by just punching the game you're looking for into the search box. Simply type first few letters and rate it directly from the results that pop up.

Happy rating!
