Best titles I should purchase?

Post by cornandbeans » Mon Dec 21, 2015 11:36 pm

So, I've been feeling like upping my GC library. I have a decent library of games now, but there are some classics I'd love to get my hands on again (SA2B being one of them, perhaps MK:DD!! if I could find one for fairly cheap). While at the same time, I am also stocking up on my N64 library, but willing to put of that for later as GC was my most beloved system (well, N64 and GC are a tie. I just spent more time on the GC as I grew up with it).

Notable titles I already own
Pikmin
SSBM
Mario Sunshine
Pokemon Colosseum
Sonic Adventure DX
PSO
Paper Mario

I own a lot of other GC games besides this, like some to note would be Time Splitters: Future Perfect which is rather difficult to come by these days. Feel free to suggest any title you feel is worth playing this day in age...I love the gamecube, so I am open to all suggestions. :P

I actually forgot to mention I had owned Luigis Mansion, Toadstool Tour, and Metroid Prime xd. I'd purchase Pikmin 2 if it wasn't so damn expensive but I also own the new play control version on the wii so I'm probably gonna hold off on that one for a while. :P

I like all of those but to me Super mario Strikers and SSX on tour. are hidden gems. and not exclusive but beyond good and evil is great too. SSX on tour lets you play as Mario and Luigi also.

Nice, I played SSX a lot on PS2 when it was first released, didn't know that about Mario & Luigi being in SSX: On Tour for GC.

I liked Super Mario Baseball a lot too

Although I've never played it, Resident Evil 4 is considered one of the best video games of all time. I'd check that out.
The Zelda titles pretty much go without saying. I own and have played through Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, and they are both awesome games. I played the Wii version of Twilight Princess at a friend's house, and the controls seemed a bit awkward and half-assed, so I'd recommend getting it on Gamecube instead.
I also recommend Super Monkey Ball. It's one diabolically hard game, but the replay value is enormous. In addition to the main game, there are 6 multiplayer-oriented mini games, not to mention that the game always runs at a smooth, no lag 60 FPS. I enjoyed this game a lot with my friends back in the day.

There are so many great games for the Gamecube, it's hard to pick the best! emu-kidid mentioned Mario Party 4 already but the other three games, 5, 6 and 7, are also great!
Pokemon XD wasn't mentioned by now. That's one of my all-time favourites! And for the Mario sports titles, there's also Mario Power Tennis and Super Mario Strikers (Mario Smash Football in Europe). But nothing beats Paper Mario: TTYD in my opinion. I played this game at least 8 times, I just finished it again two days ago. I find it's one of the greatest games Nintendo ever made!

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is my favorite Paper Mario game, and I think many people agree on that. I'm not much into RPGs, but Paper Mario TTYD was a great game.

Must have GC Games (despite you might already have some):

- Resident Evil 0, 1 & 4 (what more to say?)
- Paper Mario (second best RPG ever)
- Metroid Prime (masterpiece in just about everything)
- Baten Kaitos (THE best RPG ever)
- Killer7 (might not fit everyone but I'm in love with this)
- Eternal Darkness (very innovative)
- Super Monkey Ball 1 (yes, I know it looks very childish but it's addicting as hell and comes with a really cool pool simulator)
- Cel Damage (forget Mario Kart! Awesome Physics, awesome graphics, awesome humor, awesome mulitplayer)
- Mario Party 4 (4 is easy and good for first-timers, 5 is good when you liked 4, 7 is quite complex but good when you like the franchise)

I am very dissapointed there is no Viewtiful Joe already on the list. Viewtiful Joe 2 is fun, but not as special

Lost Kingdoms 1 and 2 are good choices.

Metroid Prime is one of the very few wiimakes with better functioning controls than the original, I recommend playing them on the Wii/Wii U.
