At the beginning of the new millennium, Nintendo sent the Gamecube out to gamers around the world. Compared to the Nintendo 64 and its successor, the Wii, the Gamecube is considered a flop in terms of sales. A lot of people hack their GameCube or use GameCube ROMs to play the games because the GCN produced some of the best Nintendo games ever. In this article, we will show you the best GameCube games.
Super Smash Bros. Melee
What more can you say about Super Smash Bros. Melee. For many the best GameCube game of all time. Super Smash Bros. Melee is considered by many to be the best part of the series. The GameCube game is still popular in the eSports scene. The principle of the game will probably be familiar to everyone: Fight against friends and foes on a stage. The last one remaining is the winner. The more you hit an opponent, the higher the percentage display, the higher the chance of knocking the opponent off the stage. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, the character selection is not as large as in the successors, but the gameplay is faster. Super Smash Bros. Melee is perfect for a competitive flatshare evening!
Mario Kart Double Dash
Mario Kart always works. And it’s always good too. Everyone knows the principle of the game here too: step on the gas, collect items, throw off opponents, and somehow come first. Mario Kart Double Dash was the third installment in the series and impressed with its speed and beautiful graphics. In contrast to the successors, more skill is required in Mario Kart Double Dash. The GameCube game is more difficult than the other Mario Kart offshoots.
What is also new is that from now on you will be driving with two characters on one kart. The one behind is responsible for the items, the one in front for the racing. In multiplayer mode, you can also drive a kart with a fellow player. You can simply switch back and forth between the front and rear seats. Together with Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mario Kart Double Dash is the ultimate multiplayer hit!
Super Mario Sunshine
Mario actually wanted to spend a relaxing holiday with Princess Peach, but on the tropical island, Mario is accused of having smeared the whole island with paint. Mario is equipped with a water pump and now has to free the island from the greasy paint. Of course, the GameCube also received a Mario 3D Jump’n’Run. After the success of Mario 64, this probably didn’t surprise anyone back then. In Super Mario Sunshine, fans get exactly what they expected: a variety of moves and jumps, great graphics, great sound, and first-class fun.
The Legend of Zelda – The Wind Waker
The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker was graphically the most innovative Zelda ever. In a playful way, however, it continued seamlessly from the successful predecessor Ocarina of Time. The cel-shading look put off many fans at first, but quickly won the hearts of all players. Gameplay, story, graphics – everything fits together perfectly.
