What are your top 10 favorite GameCube games?

#1 Posted by greenygrey (155 posts) -

I just waxing godamn nostalgic (I'll give a cookie to whomever gets the refrence), and I thought about Nintendo's last gen gaming console that looked like a lunchbox. It isn't my favorite Nintendo console, but it was still very good and it had a lot of good games for it.  I was wondering, what are your top 10 favorite GameCube games? 
 
My list: 
 
1.Resident Evil 4 
2.Metroid Prime 
3.The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker  
4.Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem 
5.Viewtiful Joe 
6.Super Smash Bros. Melee 
7.Wave Race: Blue Storm 
8.Pikmin 2 
9.Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader 
10.Tales of Symphonia 
 
Now share yours. 
 
Know that you don't have to make a top 10 list, it can be less then 10 and it doesn't have to be in order.

Can't really think right now but these would all be in the top ten and Smash Bros would be number 1. Animal Crossing, Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door, Mario Kart: Double Dash, Timesplitters 2, Starfox Assault, Rouge Squadron 3, Prime 2, Soul Caliber 2, Pikmin, Four Swords are some games I can think of right now that I liked. Really though all I needed was smash bros.

I really feel like I should just say Wind Waker and drop the mike, because I've spent more time playing, exploring, and replaying that game than just about every other GCN game combined; but I also enjoyed RE4, Viewtiful Joe, Killer 7, Sunshine, and the first Metroid Prime. 
 
Everything else I just watched my girlfriend play (Prime 2, Pikmin 1/2, Paper Mario)

Never had one. Never saw any games on it that made it worth buying. I think I remember wanting to try Pikmin at one point, so I guess that.

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes 
Ikaruga 
Metroid Prime 
 
Those were the only games that I owned, and played when I still had my GameCube. 

#33 Edited by Gerhabio (1977 posts) -

I was about to ask this since I wanna get more use out of my Wii and Gamefly account, thanks! 
 
Definite Top not in order: Windwaker, Luigi's Mansion, Resident Evil 4, Super Mario Sunshine (I don't know why they hatin'), Viewtiful Joe, Smash Bros Melee, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, and I can't remember any others right now.

Best of the Gamecube

1. Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader

The BEST Gamecube launch title. Its a shame that Factor 5 is closed. Maybe another developer will do this game justice in a future iteration.

2. Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes

An already great game with the improvements of its successor.

3. Metroid Prime

Retro Studios did a wonderful job translating the classic 2D Metroid gameplay into the modern age.

4. Resident Evil 4

Ditching the pre-rendered backgrounds, tank controls and the crappy camera angles of its predecessors RE4 is a new beginning for the modern more action oriented Resident Evil series we have now.

5. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

This would be #2 if it didn't have the stupid fetch quest at the end.
