Gamecube Games

Post by felgekarp » Sat Jan 06, 2007 4:08 pm

What Gamecube games can people recommend for a new Wii owner who didn't pay much attention to the Gamecube when it first came out? I'm open to ideas from any genre as well.

F Zero X is my prob favourite racing game ever. Couldn't stand GX though.

An absolute superb game to grab off the shelves, is Resident Evil 4, and the Resident Evil Remake as well as 0 (Resident Evil 4 works for those who don't like Resident Evil so much) Eternal Darkness - Sanity's Requiem was nice too, Perhaps Mario Smash Football? pretty cool for being a football/soccer game..

Gotcha Force is brilliant, and a little bit obscure. Its kinda Pokemon with Zone of the Enders combat. Top fun.

Also, Wario Ware for multiplayer hilarity.

I'd go along with Pikmin 1 & 2. Often looked at as kiddies games that are cute sickly things - but they are without doubt classics.

Definately Eternal Darkness.

It's the game Resident Evil wishes it could be.
