Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean. Best RPG of the 6th gen, IMO.


Hope you played the way superior Origins.


I did. While the story was better, gameplay wise it was very simplified when compared to the first one. I found the slow pacing of the first game's battle system to be much more interesting than Origin's, which was much more action oriented. Both are awesome games though, a new Baten Kaitos for Wii U or 3DS would be incredible.

Resident Evil 4 was flawless. The game still looks and plays great today too.
The game I sunk the most time into was definitely Melee.



Wind Waker, Resident Evil 4, Eternal Darkness, were all great but my pick is.......
PHANTASY STAR ONLINE!!!!!!! 300 hours into it :)

Ah, I see, fair enough. 

Th GCN game that wowed me the most like that was Rogue Squadron 2. Holy cow, seeing that game in 2001 was like watching a playable Hollywood movie, it was so insanely far ahead of any other game at the time. I couldn't believe that tiny little box was generating such mind blowing visuals.

Totally agree.  The fact that we were seeing graphics like that in a launch game was insane.  The geometry was just incredible.

I remember showing a couple of my friends (both had PS2s and one had just bought an Xbox) the Death Star trench and the City of Bespin levels.  They both bought Gamecubes that same week.




Phantasy Star Online Episodes 1 and 2. Played and finished this on my friends Dreamcast on all difficulties. Same game is on Gamecube but with splitscreen, the original game and the expansion

Unfortunately there's no reason to play it when you can play PSO Blue Burst on PC, which is PSO Episodes 1, 2, and 4. Episode 3 is a Gamecube exclusive card/strategy game. It's kind of bad. It's also unbalanced in favor of light side.

I am between Bloody Roar Primal Fury and Luigi's Mansion.



That's damn near impossible, man. Wind Waker, Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door, Metroid Prime, and Pikmin 2 are all on my favorites list, probably even top ten. More incredible games on that system than I can count.

But if I had a gun to my head and had to pick one on sheer scope and the amazing feelings it left me with, I think I'd have to go with Wind Waker too. But only in the gun scenario! Otherwise it's pretty much impossible.

The slow pace of the battles in Eternal Wings really bothered me. The battles in Origins are streamlined compared to EW, but that's not a bad thing, and I think it's a better system overall. I liked the combo system they added to Origins.




Metroid Prime 2
Sonic Adventure 2 Battle
Star Fox Adventure
