Best thing about GameCube is you can have ad isc so utterly destroyed by 2 year olds that you can't see yourself on the bottom reflection, and the disc will still be read.
Cant' say that for PS2 . The difference in readability is astounding.
But yes, most of the time, Nintendo consoles don't defunct on people. Most. I still have a working NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, and haven't had to replace anything on them at all.
Numbers: Checker Players > Halo Players
Checkers Age and replayability > Halo Age and replayability
Therefore, Checkers > Halo
So, Checkers is a better game than Halo.
