    All this Wii news lately is making me pretty itchy so im debating whether or not to pick up a GC to tide me over. Plus they have really dropped in price over here.

    What are the top 5 must have games? and anything else i should know about the console :cool:

    well, it depends on what kinda games you like....personally when i think of the top games for the gc i think of the staple nintendo titles, in no particular order:
    mario sunshine
    mario kart double dash
    metroid prime (both are good, the first is a little less confusing and easier to get through due to the lack of a complete parallel reality)
    zelda: wind waker


    different suggestions:
    a lot of people love the resident evil series for gc, but personally i've never played it

    soul calibur ii is an excellent fighting game and is dirt cheap now

    if you're into music donkey konga is a blast

    don't know how much you know about wind waker, but don't be put off by the graphics the first time you see them....very cartoonish, but once you play it you'll see how well done they are and its a nice change of pace from most games

    Yea i've seen the games before and to be honest i was a little put off with the cartoonish graphics. But since then i've played a fair share of the serious type games on ps2/xbox etc and i just need a new Nintendo fix :D

    New Guy Here! Hello all

    I would go with

    Zelda:Wind Waker
    Animal Crossing
    Resident Evil 4
    Smash Brothers

    Theres many others as well, Eternal Darkness is awesome, Metroid of course but im not a huge FPS person, If you have others to play with Smash Brothers and a Mario Party are a given.

    If you are into the stealth/action games, you should try the Splinter Cell games, graphics and gameplay are great. Would also definitely recommend the classics like SSBM and Mario Kart Double Dash.

    The gamecube is definitly worth the buy. You can enjoy lots of Nintendo to tide you over until Wii.

    Resident Evil 4 is also worth picking up the Gamecube. Everything about the game shows you the potential Gamecube does have. Resident Evil 4 is one of the best looking games on all consoles.

    I would wait, that way when you get the Wii, you can buy a bunch of GC games for a song and have hours upon hours of games to play.

    I also am waiting for the Wii, don't own a cube so I have not only the Wii games to look forward too, but also all the cube games I missed.

    If you dont have the money then wait, but if you do then go for it. Wii is still 5-6 months away.

    Nah, I reckon you should get the Gamecube to keep you busy whilst you're waiting for the Wii, should be pretty cheap at this point in time. ;)

    Yeah, those two will keep you goin for a while

    Promise you won't mind/notice after the first 15 minutes of playing, it really is executed well, when you do notice it'll be something like 'whoa that looks really cool!' Maybe you should rent that one first, i dunno.
