    Back in the days of yore at launch time (2001/2002), I couldn't afford any console because of I didn't have a job and was only a meager secondary school student. The console I would have gotten would have been a GameCube if I had the money because it was the cheapest, $400 as opposed to $700 for the PS2 and $900 for the X-box ($AUD). Secondly, it was the titles, I heard it would have some great games like Rogue Leader, and the Resident Evil series, even though I had not played any then I was still excited about them (the GameCube nut at my school got REmake and invited me over to play it with him sometime, I did and I didn't sleep for a few nights after that).

    The time to buy a GameCube for me came towards the end of 2004, in October/November, in commemoration of finishing the TEE and getting my job, I decided to buy a GameCube, seeing as they were only $120 ($AUD) from Toys 'R' Us. I bought about four games that day too, and a 59-block memory card

    Ultimately, if the GameCube didn't have its solid exclusive titles, like F-Zero, Super Smash Bros, Mario/Mario Kart and Metroid (I have finally become a Metroid Convert thanks to Prime Hunters ) I probably would not have gotten it.

    I don't realy like the gamecube... at all. Just a few games were good. No doubt it was one of Nintendo's big mistakes.

    I think my friends liked a controller that they could use, because the Xbox and PS2 controllers were big, but I have big hands and I had a fine time.

    i like the GCN. i think two reasons i like it is because it was by nintendo and it was in the form of a cube. (those reasons might sound dumb, but what are u going to do about it?)
    super smash bros. melee was awesome. but that might all change when brawl comes out.
    NINTENDO RULZ ALL!!

    I am a Smash Bros. Swordsmen Bishie fangirl. BEWARE!!!

    Nothing and that's why it was a pretty big failure for Nintendo. On the other hand, I believe they have struck gold with the Wii.
