Before anyone says it, this isn't a blank basing of the Wii U, it was a simple question base on your gaming history. The PS2 and GameCube was the two consoles that got me serious into gaming and the gaming culture, from creative games to exclusives and features. The Wii and PS3 were good consoles for what they was but they never connect to me as the GameCube and PS2 did. The PS3 went on to focus on being more mature with their games (which I don't mind) but I ever found memorable and the Wii, it felt like it just forgot about me. Both the PS2 and GameCube were some of the best controllers I ever held, espcially the GameCube controller, truly built for hand and the C-Stick was one of the clever ways to easily use as the camera. Button lay out was great, the trigger, don't quote me on this, but compare to the Wii U pro controller, felt way better because they were analag instead of digital. I will say, the Wii Mote is a good controller to, it just need an upgrade for the Wii U. Yes, I'm award that by sells numbers, it was a failure, though I personally blame the idiotic 1.2 gig per disk idea.

This year is the twelfth anniversary of the little lunch box.

I really need to learn how to embed videos

Well I don't really miss it because I still play it :)

Melee and Double Dash are required playing whenever I visit my hometown friends. Plus I'm still catching up on some of its great games.

Really good console overall. Great support from Nintendo and lots of great third-party games from Capcom, Ubisoft, Sega, and Eidos. Plus it's still probably the ultimate console for Resident Evil fans.



i'm one of those Nintendo fans who loved the GC more than the NES and N64 :P

Still waiting for them Metroid games :/

Controller was awesome. Had the best iterations of Mario Kart & Super Smash Bros. Gave birth to my favourite Nintendo franchise (Pikmin). Had some of my favourite multi-plat games (SSX 3; Timesplitters 2).

Yes, I miss it. Although like Veknoid says, mine still gets regular playtime (this thing is indestructible).

Yes.
I recently played my gamecube :) It's at my nephews house though.
We played some james bond: nightfire and Quidditch.

The gamecube is the only Nintendo system i ever bought and i liked it alot. Actually i still have it under my TV (along with the PS2, PS3 and X360).
Though with all of the ports and HD remakes, its starting to lose some value. I still keep it there cause i didnt finish Zelda twilight princess and i still have Skies of arcadia legends to go through (i beat it on the DC).

I'm still of the opinion that the GC produced the better graphics of its gen, and people didnt care anyways. So, its interesting to see people saying they want more powerful systems from Nintendo nowadays.

Is there a Game X Change near you? I think they sell them.

Because it was never about the graphics, it was always about how devs utilizes that power for innvation in gameplay. More power in the consoles will just make it even harder to maintain them financially. Sony learned that the hard way with the PS3. Gaming Consoles was never ment to replace gaming PC, they were ment to have exclusive games for the consoles. That's why its so hard to play most third parties games this gen, for me that is.
