    Hey all,
    Now that I've had my US Wii for a bit I'd like to devote some time playing the Cube games I missed. So far I only have Paper Mario. There was a thread on the old forums with great games for the Cube that were solid games...what are some of those if people don't mind saying again. I can get them cheap while in the states so I'd love to pick up a handful and have some solid gaming on the cheap.

    Some of my favourite GameCube games were Super Smash Bros. Melee and The Legend Of Zelda Wind Waker.

    I would recommend both Metriod's. I'd second SSB, too.

    Also Viewtiful Joe and Soul Caliber 2.

    Where do I start... the 'Cube had tons of great games!

    Some of my favorites:
    - Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
    - Beyond Good & Evil
    - Ikaruga - but prepare to be frustrated! One of the most difficult games I've ever played. Puts the old R-Types and Gradius to shame!
    - X-men Legends I & II
    - Zelda: Windwaker
    - Metal Gear Solid
    - Metroid Prime

    And If you're into RPGs:
    - Tales of Symphonia
    - Baten Kaitos (haven't played Origins yet)

    If you're into the genre, the Resident Evil Remake, Resident Evil 0 and 4 are very good. Don't worry about the others though. Whilst they're good, they are just complete ports of the psx version.

    Do you know if you can find this game in the States? I looked for it while back and it was going to cost me $80+.....yikes!

    I don't know if you also own an Xbox 360 but I remember hearing that Ikaruga was headed to the Xbox Live Marketplace Arcade.

    I once owned Ikaruga for the cube but I made an ass of myself and sold it a few years back. Bad move. :eek:

    SUPER SMASH BROS. MELEE!

    this is the most addiction game i've ever played. plus it's one of the best fighting games ever made. soul calibur is very nice too. not to mention you can get twilight princess, ocarina of time master quest, wind waker is fun. also check out Eternal Darkness. that game was dope as hell.

    Just thought I'd echo the sentiment, GameCube has a ton pf great games! My favorite console of last gen, actually.

    One game I picked up recently was Chibi Robo and find it extremely fun. I have 20-25 gamecube games and they are all good :D

    Only had import games for the longest time for the cube. Ton of crappy anime games and the Korean version of Mario Sunshine in English. Got a lot of the classics recently. Only played a few of them. F-Zero GX looks amazing, but only watched the demos. Got both Metroids, but don't want to play them till I can devote a good chunk of time to them. Obviously won't get around to playing Tales or Crystal Chronicles anytime soon. Played a little of each game on the Zelda Collector's disc. The last Cube game I played was Choas Field. My first Cube game was Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO. The only fighting you can beat with just one thumb thanks to Cube-ism mode.

    I'm not into games like Ikaruga, but I saw a used copy at a local shop today if anyone was wanting it badly. It was around 40 which is a lot better than the 80 bucks someone else was quoting...

    I was quoting $80, and I think it's because they never actually sold that game here in the States and any copy I could have picked up would be an import copy :(

    Absolute Must Buys:
    Super Smash Bros Melee (best multiplayer game)
    Metroid Prime (best single-player game, get the first one)
    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (it's beautiful)
    Super Mario Sunshine (just plain fun)

    Recommended buys:
    Mario Kart: Double Dash
    Metroid Prime 2 (first was better though, second didn't have as unique environments)
    Super Mario Strikers


    Whatever you do, do NOT go without any of the first four. Seriously, they're the best games on the platform.

    Clever use of "seemed" there ;)
    20 characters, 23 karts (and strategic selections of which), 16 tracks.
    It's a very full game. Though not as MKDS.

    Smash Bros, Mario Kart, F-Zero, The Zeldas, Metroids and Marios are games that have kept me busy for a very long time.
    Wasn't keen on Pikmin, Geist or Eternal Darkness.

    Actually it was released for the cube in the US. Japanese cube games are easy to spot because the GC logo is in a different place and the box is smaller than a PSP box.
    Ikaruga was never released for the Dreamcast in the US.

    Every vertical shooter known to man should be released for the DS or I should be able to play them on my 2407WFP in portrait mode.
