There's something in 'if it ain't broken...' But I'd like to have seen new areas, like Skytown and the Sanctuary Fortress, and moves like the Screw Attack and such, only without the purple.

I'm surprised to see a Mario Party make anyone's list, I gotta say.

4 is widely considered the best one though right?

NGC gave 4 68% or something similarly mediocre and 5 80%...

By the looks of it, the reason seems to be the same as mine for Melee or Double Dash (My number 11) the multiplayer memories.

I would've said 2 was a highlight.

I've got to admit, I assumed that everyone's lists would work out about the same - I'm surprised to see such a variety.



I'll have a go:
Bubbling Under:
 
10:
 
9:
 
8:
 
7:
 
6:
 
5:
 
4:
 
3:

It's got fantastic variety of choice, with every meaningful genre well represented in it's library, so I'm not all that surprised.

It's good to see stuff like Def Jam Vendetta and Timesplitters 2 being mentioned - you could only dream of having third-party games of that high quality on the Wii U. Viewtiful Joe doesn't seem to have mentioned by anybody though...

Really enjoying this thread. If only I'd kept up with it properly. Embarrassed

@Balla: all the GameCube games on my list are ones I bought and played through the Wii.

@Drunka: thanks, man! I was pretty pleased that I could put a decent ten together. Grin

Thoughts on Cappa's list:
 

Thoughts on mas's list:
 

Thoughts on OR's list: any list with FSA in it is a friend of my list! May have said that before, but it's worth repeating: lovely little game.

Thoughts on Jas's list:
 

Thoughts on EofGizmo's list: really glad to see a game in there for love. It's the same reason that I'm fond of NES Open Tournament Golf - just played it with the right people. Top stuff. Thumbs Up!

Thoughts on Jimbob's list:
 

Final note for this post: if I'd allowed myself GC games that I'd played Wii versions of, then Metroid Prime, Jungle Beat, Resident Evil 4 and Twilight Princess would be in my Top Ten for sure. It felt wrong to do so, though, particularly as all of the above had massive changes to accommodate Wii controls. Thumbs Down...

I'd like to play Chibi-Robo! again, but I'm a bit fearful that my memories of it paint a rosier picture than what it was actually like. It was definitely the right game for the time and place though - when I bought it, I'd finished academy earlier that week and had uni to look forward to about four months later. All I did that summer was play football in the sun during the day, go underage drinking at night, look forward to Still Game series 5 and play Chibi-Robo!. Superb!

Now? It might be a bit mince. It's personality carried it a long way, I'm sure of that.

Viewtiful Joe is right near the top of my list of game's I must play.
I'll be playing a potential list shaker tomorrow- My friend's Katie and Jake are bringing the Game Boys, the cables and Four Swords Adventure.

I'll have proper responses to people's lists at some point, but Ive had about 10 hours sleep since I got out of bed at 7am on Friday and I just got home from a full shift at work, despite only getting back the country this morning. I should go to sleep but I think I've forgotten how.

I'm glad we didn't do a vote for this.

What we probably should do though, is tally everyone's non-vote opinions on their top 10 GameCube games, and, from that data, work out what are the top 10 GameCube gam-*shot*

Balla says he will do that and I would like to see the answer but as the Twitter Master said hopefully a few more put up some sort of Top 10 and I know Jay said he will.

There’s a lot of love for Paper Mario: TTYD which I was aware of, but didn’t realise it was so popular here. I’ve put it on temporary hold as the Puni’s and that ruddy tree are annoying me with all the back-tracking. Pretty sure there’s a boss imminent, but this is where I stopped playing originally. One of those psychological walls that I seem to meet in certain games.

Mas will be pleased to know that I have started Beyond Good & Evil HD, which so far I am enjoying. Snapping the animals is more fun than I thought and it all feels so smooth and enjoyable to play.

The Punis were not my favourite chapter. That was the next one, and I would encourage you to press on through. I'm fine with the backtracking though, it's all a bit Metroidvania.

I'll second what Balla says - the Punis are a low-point; get it done and out of the way, I would.

I really really do mean to post in this thread, but the time I need to set aside to actually think up and consequently draft my list is putting me off doing it. Wednesday is my day off, so I think I'll jump in and get my list out to the masses then.

I started my short list, got 3 games on it then had to stop. I'll do it one day... That's the problem of a non-vote thread, don't feel like there's any rush! Same issue with my own thread Embarrassed

Yeah, when there's a legitimate deadline I do feel a bit more pressure to actually get a list in... otherwise the procrastinator in me gets to run rampant. Laughing

A shortlist of 24 games?! Truly an epic machine - see if you can get it down to twenty by the weekend. Tongue
