For every generation, a particular game stands out from the rest. And if you were to look back at the hours you spent playing each game. It probably would remind you of why your love for this hobby runs so deep.. After all, nostalgia is a hell of a thing. Furthermore, every gamer has a title that is dear to their heart. It’s the nature of being a gamer. So, here’s a list of Bg4ghubs 10 Favorite Gamecube games. The games are in no specific order, just our favorite titles from the console.
Beyond Good And Evil
There’s no denying that Beyond Good and Evil isn’t a cult classic. It’s genuinely a beloved title on the Gamecube, and it has even had many other console releases as well. The story and gameplay of the game are one of its most unique features. There is currently a sequel in development, but we’ve yet to receive a release date.
Super Mario Sunshine
Everybody loves Mario, and Super Mario Sunshine puts a fantastic spin on the series. There’s just something rather satisfying about washing away slime. The addition of the backpack was excellent and a unique take on Mario. It offered up a new style of gameplay we hadn’t seen in the series before. The game also still keeps faithful to the original series with its beautiful art style and music.
Skies Of Arcadia Legends
Skies of Arcadia was originally released on the Dreamcast. The game was well-received, but then Sega had its mishap with the Dreamcast. And the console went south and was discontinued. Fortunately, it was decided to port this fantastic title to the Gamecube, and in doing so, they added a few upgrades to the game. If you’re a fan of RPGs, this is a title not to miss.
Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem
Eternal Darkness came as a surprise; It was a unique game that did an exceptional job at testing your sanity. The game is based deeply on the works of H.P Lovecraft and will take the player through thousands of years of ageless story. Eternal Darkness isn’t your average horror game using shock scares; instead, it chooses to distort your gameplay’s reality. As a horror fan myself, the game was one of my favorite titles on the console.
Mario Kart: Double Dash
For me, Double Dash was my first entry into the Mario Kart series, and I was obsessed. My friends and I put an ungodly amount of time into this title. Maybe I’m biased, but Mario Kart is worthy enough to be on this list. I could never get enough of blasting my opponent with a mushroom just before the finish line. If you love your retro titles, I’m sure you have already got your hands on Mario Kart: Double Dash. But if you’re new to the scene and haven’t had the chance to play this fantastic title, get on it.
It would be a shame if I didn’t include Animal Crossing on this list because it’s beloved by many gamers. Even to this day, the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Nintendo Switch was a hit. If you are looking for a game to relax in and go fishing and just enjoy daily life, this is the game for you. Animal Crossing is probably the least frustrating game around.
The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
Wind Waker has to be one of the strangest Zelda’s of them all. The game took advantage of the graphical power of the Gamecube in a rather creative way. Link had become well, in all sense, a cartoon character. But even though this was an entirely different approach to the series, it conveniently worked well. Wind Waker may have felt a bit more playful, but it still held that Zelda formula we all love.
Super Smash Bros Melee
What can I say about this title other than “it’s a smash hit enjoyed by millions.” Super Smash Bros Melee was Gamecube’s best-selling title, and just about every Nintendo fan loved this game. Nintendo had thrown in all of its iconic characters into one title and matched them up against each other. It left you with some of the most intense and fun battles you’ll experience on the Gamecube.
Metroid in the first person, “what more could you ask for.”. It took the franchise in an entirely new direction and, on top of that, looked stunning. We now had not only a fantastic first-person shooter but also a great puzzler mashed into one. And this time, Samus was off to a new planet and on a new adventure. Metroid Prime had set a new standard for the franchise.
Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Link in all his glory. At the time, you had never seen him look so good. Twilight Princess, in my opinion, is the darkest Zelda of them all. You switch between two dimensions turning into a wolf and back again to our hero Link. Unlike the Wind Waker, there was nothing playful about this adventure. But still, it’s a classic and one of the finest games on the Gamecube.
