I bought it, thing had some of the best Nintendo games of all time on it. Hell thing even had multiplats

Because it’s the generation they got fucking weird
Luigi’s Mansion
Super Mario Sunshine
Metroid PRIME 1 and 2
Zelda Wind Waker
Sonic on a Nintendo console
Baten Kaitos
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
Smash Bros. Melee

Etc. Nintendo got very experimental during this era and as a result a lot of their games have this “magic” to them that just wasn’t replicated by the Wii or Wii U due to them playing it safe

It's the second best home Nintendo Console.

SNES > GameCube > Wii > N64 > NES > WiiU

Too early in the Switches life to properly rate it.

Andrew Green

greatest
not even close. it was a garbage console with average titles.

GC was a massive flop.
According to a kiddie who wasn't even born at the time.

Nintendo sold about 25 - 30 million unit. Same as the X-Box. Except Nintendo made a profit and Microsoft lost about $10 BILLION. Flop my ass.

Dominic Gray

hindsight is 2020 and it was the last actual improvement nintendo made to their console line up that wasnt absolutely mired with shitty gimmicks.
inb4 wii is the best console cuz not very good motion controls
inb4 wiiu is the best one because it has 10 re released games and 2 original ones
inb4 n64 is the best one despite its controller being archaic at best
inb4 switch because you can carry it to the toilet and use it without washing your hands and not get in trouble with mummy
if im playing a game, im playing it on a dedicated piece of hardware, in a dedicated space. while im outside im not there to play video games, im there to be outside doing other shit.
also the games were just better overall on the gamecube.
also
but Nintendo was experimental during the gc era tooo :(((
yeah, they were experimental with the games. the thing that you should be experimenting with, not the input method. nothing feels more shitty to me, as someone with an extremely limited range of motion in my right arm due to an accident, that i have my fucking experience being gimped for OVER 10 FUCKING YEARS because Nintendo wanted to fucking experiment.

Nolan Murphy
Nolan Murphy

well it is a good console. extremely easy to use, all the ports are in prominent positions and it's obvious what they're all for, no fussing about expansion paks or controller paks. wireless controller. resident evil 4. you can drop it down a flight of stairs and it'll still work. i prefer the N64 but i can see why people love gamecube.

Josiah Watson

No it didn't. Xbox and ps2 out sold the GC. GC was also know for having by far the weekest line up of exclusives. It might have made more money but microsoft and sony dident give a fuck because they are both billion dollar companies and where trying to corner the market which they did. This just set them up to shit on nintendo for years to come.

Just because someone doesn't buy something doesn't mean it can't be the greatest console. The cube was fucking amazing and way ahead of its time with its portable screen, in 1998. Think about that for a sec.

I never had any other NES system after the SNES (I migrated to playstation) but in hindsight the Gamecube and how powerful it was probably objectively the best console of that era.

William Davis

was also know for having by far the weakest line up of exclusives

nintendo must develop consoles for cripples like me. fuck the healthy general population.

while im outside im not there to play video games, im there to be outside doing other shit.

i must be sitting in a confined space totally confined by my console or else it implies i'm outside and doing important shit

what is being in another room.

Robert Parker

It comes down to opinion. Some people swear by the dualshock, others praise the xbox controller like its a gift from god. if you ask me, the controller selection for PC is really shitty right now.

The n64 and Gamecube may have been "successful" in the sense that they generated profit for Nintendo, but they were both massive failures in terms of allowing Sony to dominate the market for those generations.

20 years from now you will see the same kind of morons trying to convince people that the Wii U was amazing and that Captain Toad was the game of the decade.

Aaron Price

Because of its competitive side of reflexes vs another human being. Luigi's Mansion etc. is a completely different thing, that's why.

It really wasn't. During the entire period between the 64's launch and the gamecube's end they made bad business decision after bad business decision and really destroyed the potential of both consoles, particularly the gamecube.

I'd like to remind you that you're on a board where if a game doesn't get a 90+ rating on a website and sell at least 20 million copies then it's a flop.

Not him but he's right. Not everything is black and white. Just because the GC didn't sell as much as the PS2 doesn't mean it was a flop. By that logic the Xbox was a massive flop too. As already pointed out, Nintendo made a profit on the Game Cube whereas Microsoft soft lost billions. Shades of grey my friend.

Christian Ward

Them and Sunshinefags. The GameCube's first party titles are composed of mostly sequels that just aren't as good as the originals except on a technical standpoint, except for maybe Melee.

Fucking who? Ogres? I loved the original Xbox but the controller was always a major laughing point between me and my friends it was the ugliest fucking thing and needlessly large. Glad they changed to a much smaller one later on. Although the black and white buttons were fucking annoying in the revised version.

GC fags are just very vocal.

The GC is the worst era for nintendo games, it had the worst 3D Mario, the worst 3D Zelda, the second Zelda was not exclusive and released after the Wii version, Luigi's mansion while good is weak for your flagship launch game, one of the worst Mario Kart and so on.

Only Metroid and Smash were superior to the previous games, and only because Metroid was never in 3D before and Smash 64 was the only prequel to Melee.

I guess F-Zero GX exists, but come on nobody plays F-Zero.

Rare left too, and instead of going away with a hit, they left with a turd called Star Fox Adventures, that reminds us why Nintendo let Rare go to microsoft, one of the few smart decisions by Nintendo in that era.

The "Pokemon Stadium" games we got were worse than the N64 ones and the Mario Party games started getting worse and worse, and were spammed to shit every single year.

Shit controller too, there's a reason it never came back and its now only the "Melee fag controller".

Also while it was even stronger than the ps2 and not all that far away from the xbox, it had the worst 3rd party support most likely for it's weird controller plus it's mini dvd that again crippled nintendo just like the gen before.

I remember the Capcom 5, and the beheading that Mikami would do if Resident Evil 4 would ever get ported to any other system, it got announced for ps2 before it even released for gc.

The Gamecube is easily the worst nintendo console and the Wii shits all over it.

Kayden Hughes

you may not have been around back then but a lot of people thought Sunshine was a massive disappointment.

Also, the Wii has all 3 Metroid Prime games, so MP isn't an argument for GC being better than Wii.
