    I recently was able to pickup a wii and so far have been having a blast with it. After a dry spell with gaming systems I am finally back into gaming. I have enjoyed playing a lot of the virtual console titles and am still waiting for some more must have wii titles.

    All of that being said - I never have played a Game Cube and therefore have missed out on a bunch of quality games. I have looked at Resident Evil 4 for the GameCube and it looks pretty good. I am thinking about picking this up however I am worried I will be disappointed with the game?

    Any opinions out there? Would anyone suggest picking up a GC controller and GC games?

    A common question. First off you can get RE4 wii version which has motion controls for aiming, probably a lot better than the gamecube version.

    That said, F Zero GX, Soul Calibur II and the 'Zelda Collectors Edition' are all fantastic GC discs. Gamecube controllers are very cheap to buy used. I recomend the wireless Wavebird if you don't mind giving up the rumble feature.

    Yea...I should have realized RE4 was on Wii. I guess saw the on rails shooter (chronicle?) and thought that was the only RE on the Wii. Still sounds like there are some good offerings for the cube. I was shocked to see no Mega Man on VC although looks like I can save a bunch and buy the GC Mega Man collection.

    I bought a half dozen GCN games last year, and two controllers. I don't play them very much, but I think I got all 6 for about $60, so it was worth it.

    Viewtiful Joe 1&2 - the first one is the better of the two.
    Metroid Prime 1&2 - meh; GCN controller for FPS is baaaaad IMO. Good games though if you can stand fighting the controls.
    Killer 7 - good game from NMH creator; totally different game though
    Ikaruga - crazy arcade shooting type game

    Super Smash Bros Melee is always good. But with brawl coming around the corner, maybe there's no point in it.

    resident evil 4 for gamecube was a masterpiece of a game, easly one of the best games for the gamecube, i certenly you pick it up, though there is a wii version that uses the wii's unique remote and it also has tonnes more special features, consider the wii version a collectors edition, but be warned, the gamecube and wii version have the exact same graphics.

    some more games i suggest from everyone's favourite purple lunch box.

    super smash brothers meelee
    the legend of zelda: wind waker
    the splinter cell games play quite nice on the cube
    mario sunshine
    the legend of zelda: twilight princess (can be found on wii aswell)
    nba street 3 plays really well on the cube
    madden games are decent on wii
    and my personal favourite - metal gear solid : twin snakes <--- the most epic game ever

    Paper Mario: Thousand year door.....

    it is 1000x better than super paper mario ... so don't let that discourage you .

    Best game for GC...
