"An underrated masterpiece!
Of course Nintendo being Nintendo, they had to go with these stupid mini-discs that scared away some 3rd party developers.
But this system still had some amazing games - particularly Mario Sunshine and Rogue Leader.
And as for the controller - it’s still the most comfortable controller I’ve ever held!"
"Nintendo's attempt to keep up with Sony and Microsoft in my opinion. I didn't get to play many games on this system because its about the time I signed my life away to the Army. I do think about buying one though to get some nostalgia."
"As someone who plays a lot of Smash Bros. I know that this is a take that will get me guff: I HATE these controllers more than anything. In hindsight there were some cool games on here but this just felt like a generational miss for Nintendo. I was firmly camp PS2 in this era and the games were way better over there. Even Mario (Sunshine) was one of the weaker entries as well. Some games have grown on my learning of them after the fact (Pikmin) but so much didn't land for me. "
"This system came out during my gaming "dark ages" - not much time spent on games, but I did enjoy playing Double Dash with my friends. Also it was great that Gamecube games carried forward to the Wii, which were wildly different systems."
"I had a great time with this system, absolutely loved Wind Waker, Mario Kart Double Dash, Luigi’s Mansion, Mario Sunshine and more. The controllers are among the best for Nintendo consoles. As others mentioned the splash logo at the beginning of every game was flawless - I don’t know why, but this makes a system better haha"
"What is it with Nintendo and weird controllers. Granted this one is better than the 64 but still not the best. My buddies and I spent many nights battling it out in Soul Caliber. It was nice to see RE 4 on it also. Overall not a bad system but it seems like Nintendo always shoots themselves in the foot. Why not just use actual disc's instead of trying to re-invent the wheel everything. "
"The dreams all came true for 10 year old NotJosh when I received a GameCube for Christmas. My favorite versions of Mario Party and Mario Kart both come from this platform and the controller is still top tier in the NintendoVerse. Without this console, my love of Nintendo games wouldn’t have grown into what it is today. I acquired another console about a year ago that is still getting playtime."
"A loading screen that you can hear with the TV on mute! Heck you can hear it just reading this! The controller has timeless design (for some reason). The games were Nintendo games! So they were classics and fun for everyone!"
"The second most played console in my childhood. Getting Tony Hawk 4 and this at Christmas one year was amazing. Played so many classics on this bad ass cube. To this day I am a die hard smash fan from all the sessions I would play with my brothers and cousins. "
"A very underrated system from Nintendo. The first to use discs, and they were non standard size. Uncommon products make things more expensive. Some of the games I still play to this day. Also another weird controller from Nintendo."
"A system I never owned, but played a lot at a friends house. Seeing the size of the game discs compared to the PlayStation's was shocking to me (more funny) but never played enough to figure out just how I'm supposed to operate this controller. It looks simple & I imagine had I owned one that I would've gotten it over time, but just never did."
"This is the first system that I ever bought outright on my own. I saved for months. There were some awesome games for this, including updated versions of things like Zelda OoT. This is probably the system that I owned for the longest prior to owning my XBOX one since day 1.
The size of the console, the size of the controller, it all made for a revolutionary console."
"The G.O.A.T. The controllers fit nicely in your hand, console was small and fit almost anywhere. The disc were small, which was kind of weird, but it worked. Some of my favorite video games were on this system. I always wanted Nintendo to make a GameCube 2 or something to continue with improvements to this system, but they went a different route than Microsoft and Sony. "
