Well, I just picked up a Gamecube for myself this Christmas. I got the Mario Party 7 bundle. I also had Metroid Prime and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker plus the Zelda preorder bonus disc (had those for a few years :p ). I've ordered Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes and Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike. Probably going to pick up SSBM today. These, from what I've experienced, are all solid, must-have games for the Gamecube.

Because he obviously wants to enjoy the Gamecube games now, as opposed to waiting another year to get a system that may or maynot be sold out.

No, it's a Gamecube game, its just that when you load it on the Revolution, you can play it with the Revolution controller.

Just to clear out the Revolution "issue".I don't wanna wait for the Revolution.When the Revolution comes out I will try to buy it awell.The GameCube also has a collection value for me as I own all of Nintendo's previous consoles (NES/SNES/N64).

Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.I now have a nice list of games to start with, thanks to you guys.

One more question I do have though.How does the GaeCube controller feel when playing games ? Compared to let's say the PS2 controller, if you can compare those two at all.

The gamecube controller fits more comfortably in your hands than any controller except for maybe the xbox 360, in my opinion. It's no good for 2d fighters cause the dpad is too small though. The majority of games on gamecube take advantage of the controller and its awesome (Y)

also one of the cool things is the shoulder buttons are analog and also have a click at the end that has its own function, kinda hard to explain but you will know what I mean when you use one

Thanks macro.I didn't know the shoulder buttons have two functions, that sounds cool.

For my 2D fighting needs I have my PC, with SNES & NeoGeo roms, and my PS2-like analog controller.

Nice thread! Helps me a lot ;)

Yeah, I find the D-pad nearly useless because of its size. I was playing the Sonic collection today and kept switching back to the analog stick unconciously because the D-pad was so tiny. It's a pain, because using the analog makes it very hard to do the super spin thing.

Only thing I disliked is the annoying start up thing, Mehhhh! Otherwise it's really nice when you bundle the Wavebirds with a game like RE4. It feels like next-gen. :D Wavebirds feel cooler when you use them on a bigscreen tv that's far from a couch or something.

Sonic Heroes is a good looking, fun game. Try that one also.

Gamecube has been awesome, its probably the best party console I've ever had. It doesnt really have a lot of good third party games, so you end up waiting for Nintendo's next game for months at a time. But I get hours and hours of entertainment playing games like Mario Kart (Especially 8 player LAN games), Super Smash Brothers, Mario Party, Super Mario Strikers, Donkey Konga, and some others that I cant think of specifically right now.

It does offer some fun single player experiences as well... the Metroid Prime series, Ikaruga was ported to it, Mario Sunshine was fun, Paper Mario was a surprisingly good RPG, Resident Evil 4 of course, Wind Waker.

Overall I'm happy with it, gamecubes are always present when I get together with my friends. Unfortunately, it doesn't really have a huge library of good games... but I'm happy with what I got.

What's the "annoying start up thing" ? :huh: Wavebirds are wireless GC controllers ?

I'm perfectly fine with that.

I think there's no need for me to "waste" money on a Wavebird because my room is not that big (16 square-meters) and my couch is near the TV.Besides, I don't like wireless peripherials.I like the cord comming out of the controller. :yes:

Are those two games turn-based RPGs ?

Neither one is turn based rpg. Tales of Symphonia is real time and Fire Emblem is a srpg. Both of them are good games. Tales of Symphonia reminds me of Star Ocean 3. If you are used to turn based, then Fire Emblem will give you some headaches.

If you want a turn based RPG for the GameCube, Paper Mario: TTYD is the only way to go!
