    Well if you have never owned a gamecube, I think you will need to buy either the classic controller or a gamecube controller to play the games.

    ...It requires a GAMECUBE controller and a gamecube memory card.

    Good games:

    Super Smash Bros. Melee
    Super Mario Sunshine (Yeah, seriously)
    I'm forced to say Wind Waker
    Killer7
    Metroid Prime 1/2
    Beyond Good and Evil
    Tales of Symphonia
    Ocarina of Time if you don't have a 64
    Paper Mario 2: The thousand year door
    Baiten Kaitos
    A certain person says Donkey Konga/Jungle Beat
    Super Monkey Ball 2
    Timesplitters 2
    Soul Caliber 2?

    Yes Gamecube had some great games, so it would be worth it for you to dig into the Gamecube vault of gems. Remember you need a Gamecube controller and a memory card to play them.

    Some more good games:
    Animal Crossing (Looks kiddy, but its good)
    Resident Evil 0 or 4

    Sunshine really is hated for no reason. I still love that game. But yeah, all of the games listed are pretty good titles. I very much recommend the listed Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. I think that might be favorite Cube title. That, or Wind Waker.

    You should still get the best of both worlds, as there was great Gamecube games out back then..and you have the option to play Gamecube games you might as well use it right?

    @Brawny

    I totally forgot it was out for Wii..and I have the Wii edition :lol:

    Melee ftw. That game made me realize how much Nintendo can rule when they try.

    Yeah, but if you know that a newer title is coming based upon a previous title from the Gamecube, why go through all the effort. Unless your hardcore. Typical example is Smash Bros Melee and Smash Bros Brawl.

    Simple, Melee is a classic game and if it were bought now would be a great thing to tide you over till Brawl. You can compare the difference between that and the new one. Play as your favourite characters from the past game that may not be in the one etc. I could keep going but I won't.

    Thats why though you should get Melee and the other games mentioned.
    Don't overlook what the Gamecube had to offer us.

    I recommend a lot of what these guys already said tbh:

    The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker
    Super Mario Sunshine (I found it a really fun game tbh and liked the bright setting)
    Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
    Viewtiful Joe 1 & 2 (Great games, shouldn't be missed imo and pretty tough games to beat aswell if you haven't played them before)
    Metroid Prime 1 & 2
    Super Smash Bros Melee
    Resident Evil Zero & the remakes of the original Res games are pretty good if your a fan of the Res series.

    Well aside from your typical games that is on everyone's top 10 list such as your Mario, Zelda, Metroids, Smash Bros ,and Resident Evils

    Here are some underrated gems (some are multiplatform)

    Beyond Good n' Evil
    Vexx
    Rayman 3
    Alien Homnid
    Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (although requires the bongos)
    Metal Arms
    Second Sight
    Sphinx & The Cursed Mummy

    you need a GAMECUBE Controller to play GAMECUBE games.... the Classic Controller is for Virtual Console games ,and SOME Wii games.

    Information and list all seems to be set (remember, you need a Gamecube Controller and Gamecube Memory Card to play GC games)...but just for your further convenience, a GameRankings.com readout:

    [​IMG]

    I never had a gamecube either, and it really turns out to be a good thing. Games like Metroid Prime and Mario Sunshine age really, really well. Metroid Prime is what, 6 years old? Cost me $6 to buy at Gamestop? And I had an absolute blast playing it. I feel as though I'll never really fall into a boring slump with my Wii because there's simply too much to catch up on in between big Wii title releases.

    You can't go wrong buying any of the classics on vi3tmix's list.

    For the investment of the controller and memory card, it's well worth it. Just get the games used (cheap) and you'll have just as much fun with most as a brand new game.

    Remember, good games are good forever. Heck, I still have my Atari 2600 around just to play Pacman!
