The Gamecube's Best Games

The GameCube was a kick-ass platform that had tons of awesome games. There were many people (and unfortunately there still are) laughing at the Cube in its days but I in turn was laughing at them. And I still am!

While it didn't feature many of the franchises that made the PS2 and Xbox popular it has as impressive a rogue's gallery as any of its contemporaries.

You can probably get one for cheap with lots of games now, and you should.

Ocarina of Time and Master Quest. This was Nintendo inventing the HD remix.

If there's one thing you can take away from the GameCube era, it's that its finest games were among the best of the generation, reaching levels of polish and design unity any game, now or then, would be lucky to reach.
