View Full Version : Good GameCube games.

07-30-2007, 11:28 AM
Okay, so I have a GameCube, but I don't have that many games. So far I've only bought 4 games, which are:

- The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
- The Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess.
- Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles.
- Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

The thing is I'd really like to get my hands on some really good GameCube games, but I just don't know which ones I should go after. Any suggestions?

If you find any shops with The Legend of Zelda: Master Quest, BUY IT!!!! OoT on Gamecube with an extra hard mode. It is V nice.

Also tales of symphonia.

The original Resident Evil remake and Resident Evil Zero are fantastic.

07-30-2007, 12:29 PM
Tales of Symphonia.

That's about it.

Baten Kaitos, hella no. That game sucks ass.

07-30-2007, 01:55 PM
Tales of Symphonia and Eternal Darkness. If you;re into the older RE's then the remake is worth a purchase, though I didn't care much for RE0. That's about all I'd spend my money on that you don't already have.

07-30-2007, 02:19 PM
Tales of Symphonia.

That's about it.

Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes is a worthy purchase, primarily for novelty value if you've played the original and because it's a decent game if you haven't.

As opposed to a worthy purchase, it is essential that you buy Super Smash Bros Melee. It's the best Fighting Platform game you'll ever play until Brawl comes out on the Wii.

07-30-2007, 03:22 PM
Super Smash Brothers Melee
Soul Calibur II
Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup <---- Really the only sport game I like.

07-30-2007, 03:49 PM
Metroid Prime.

And again, for emphasis:

Metroid Prime.

07-30-2007, 04:19 PM
Outside the ones mentioned:

Luigi's Mansion
Wario Ware
Resident Evil 4
Mario Party games, except Mario Party 4 which sucks

07-30-2007, 04:44 PM
A Gamecube thread and only one mention of Resident Evil 4. This cant be right.

07-30-2007, 04:50 PM
SSBM, Paper Mario.

Spawn of Sephiroth

Its a damn right out disgrace. Resident Evil 4 is the best game on the Game Cube, and one of the best of all times. (I guess everyone is still scarred crapless from it to even bring it up.)

Ikaruga if you likes a challenge.
And no Gamecube collection is complete without Super Smash Brothers Melee, which is the best game on the Gamecube. RE4 is ok, but it's on 3 other systems as well. Melee is the best GC game--it came out in late '01, and people still play it today.

The original Resident Evil remake and Resident Evil Zero are fantastic.
Remake, definitely.
Zero... not so much.

- RE4
- Metroid Prime
- Metroid Prime 2
- Viewtiful Joe
- Killer7
- I forget what other games I have right now. Hrmph.

07-30-2007, 06:19 PM
Ikaruga if you likes a challenge.

Ikaruga period. Can't believe I forgot that one.

07-30-2007, 10:08 PM
It has been said many times before but get

Super Smash Brothers Melee(A must have)
Tales of Symphoia

Also if you don't have a wii you should get
The legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Mario Party games are great with friends, but the best one is 5.

07-30-2007, 10:32 PM
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
Pikmin 2
Metroid Prime
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Viewtiful Joe
Viewtiful Joe 2
Resident Evil 4
The games that use the kongas are pretty fun, too. Especially Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat.

07-30-2007, 11:06 PM
People have probably mentioned all of these games but

Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Metroid Prime 1 & 2
Resident Evil 4
Super Monkey Ball
Tales of Symphonia
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Eternal Darkness
Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes

Thant is about it.

Considering the expanded PS2 and Wii version, getting Resident Evil 4 on the GameCube is rather pointless at this point, seeing as both versions are superior to it in content and general refinement, great a game as it may be.

Unless you course you don't have a Wii or PS2, in which case you should definately get it!

*shoots himself for forgetting this one*

Well, besides the obvious ones pointed out already, I'd recommend Pikmin 2, Super Mario Sunshine, and Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat.

Also, because only one person's said it so far, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. It's pretty darned good.

07-31-2007, 06:26 PM
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Skies of Arcadia Legends
Tales of Symphonia
Fire Emblem:Path of Radiance
Paper Mario:TTYOD
F-Zero GX
Mystic Heroes
Mega Man X Collection
Mega Man X Command Mission
Phantasy Star Online:Ep 1 and 2
Super Mario Sunshine
Mario Superstar Baseball
Metroid Prime
Metroid Prime 2

Agreed with the people who mentioned SSB:M, Metroid Prime, Fire Emblem, and FF:CC (provided you've got some people to play it with). TimeSplitters 2 is absolutely fantastic for both the arcade challenges and the multiplayer action (mostly the latter though). I've no idea if any installments in the TS series are better than 2, but I'd still recommend it. Had some fantastic nights with that game and three mates playing Frantic deathmatch.

i just bought a GC about a month ago for the sole reason of getting the GBA player and seeing my advanced RPGs on the big screen. I think i'm going to have to check some of these titles out.
