Discussion in 'Nintendo Gamecube' started by lazynave, Oct 9, 2006.
hey i was just wondering what appealed to you about the Gamecube besides the games that came out
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.
1. cus it was nintendo
2. cus mario Kart DD
3.Soul calibur with link!
i liked it For SSBM...and A few other games...but i find the gamecube to suck way to much...indeed nintendo's biggest mistake
NO NIN10DO BIGGEST MISTAKE IS NOT HAVIN MARIO READY FOR THE OPENING.....ONCE[GC],TWICE[DS] NOW 3 TIMES???[WII]
Come on!!!!! the Gamecube was great!!!!
I bought it for some resons like:
-it is nintendo
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.
SSBM was the reason I got the GameCube.
I bought Gamecube for the controller. Yes, that's right, I generally buy my systems based on the comfort and style of the controller. At the time, there was only the PS2, which as everyone knows, has a hideously weak controller, and the Xbox which at the time was only being sold with that massive Xbox controller that was too big and weird for my hands. I thought it would be the best because it had better graphics than PS2 and yet was cheaper than Xbox.
I got WaveRace which was pretty and difficult, but after a while, I was like, what's the point in this game? Then, my friend brought over a copy of SSBM and I was hooked. It was funny, he had been playing it for a few weeks and within an hour, I was totally killing him with Fox. I also got this game called Cell Damage, which was a slightly more mature cel-shaded MarioKart-esque game that was actually really fun. I also loved SSX: Tricky, but after the Controller-S came out for Xbox and I played SSX on my cousin's Xbox, as well as a few other games, I sold my GC for Xbox and never looked back. Since most of the games I like are multi-platform, I'm glad I got the Xbox because it always had the best graphics, sound, online multiplayer, etc.
Wii will definetly be soooo much better than the GC and all the good GC games I missed, I can now play on Wii for less money.
I was disappointed in the game for the GameCube. It was like the Nintendo 64 but with nowhere near the amount of the classics that the N64 had.
Correct, i so agree with u. GCN had the best controller, the most comfortable ever. I loved the GCN cause of its controller and those few exclusive titles.
I think for controllers, I didn't mind the N64. But the best one was the SNES and GCN on equal par.
I owned a GCN, but I sold it 3 MONTHS after I bought it, because I really didn't like it too much...
Nintendo was lagging behind Sony and Microsoft with that console.
So I didn't really like the cube that much. It had some must have games like Zelda and Mario on it, and thats really why I bought the system.
The Wii on the other hand well its already been proven to be the top dog!
To me, the most correct comment in this thread (unless I missed one or two )
i think if the GC had a few more titles released and online play it wud of ruled but as it didnt it flopped.
The cube by itself was a great system and Nintendo did a great job minus the small DVD disk. I love the cube and had lots of fun with it, it was just to bad that there weren't too many third party support. There weren't to many because of Nintendo's high price of licensing games. If they were to have a few more RPG games the system would've done very well.
