    I never owned a Gamecube and since the Wii will play the old games I was wondering what games I should get. I will probably get Mario Sunshine just because I like Mario games so much. What was the Zelda game for the GC like?

    Zelda was good, don't let the cartoony graphics put you off from getting it. Both the Metroids were great too. Both Pikmins are a lot of fun, Batallion Wars was another good one. I'd say Resident Evil 4, but the Wii version is better.

    Smash is obviously a great choice, but with Brawl coming out soon, only for nostalgia. Metroid, Zelda, and Paper Mario are my recommendations.

    Madden is 100 times better on Gamecube than it is on 360 if you're a fan of the franchise mode and superstar mode.

    No Gamecube collection is complete without:

    Super Mario Sunshine
    Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door
    Metroid Prime
    Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
    the Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
    the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    Star Fox: Assault (the land missions suck but the flying is fun as hell).
    Super Smash Bros. Melee (not necessary now because of Brawl)

    I gotta try out Pikmin someday. I'd recommend the Resident Evil series on the Gamecube but Resident Evil 4 on the Wii is far superior to the Gamecube version and I have a feeling Capcom is going to go in a remake frenzy on the Wii with the rest of the series.

    I've heard that from a few others. Do you guys really think their are going to make RE2 and 3 like they did with the first game on Gamecube? I would love it if they did but it just seems like a waste of time/money.

    Why get the GC version of Twilight Princess?

    It wouldn't be that much of a waste of time as the games are already complete, they would just need to tweak the controls, the hard parts done. I'm not sure it would be a waste of money either, again the hard parts done, I'm not sure how Resident Evil 4 sales are, but I'd imagine they're decent enough to consider more ports.

    Agree with this list. I never got into Metroid Prime though. I thought some of the SFA land missions were alright. The Sauria one was pretty good. The others were so-so.

    Melee is unnecessary. Get it after Brawl when the price will drop (it's still only $30 after 6 years).

    Considering the success of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles on the Wii, I wouldn't be surprised at all if Capcom decided to remake the entire Resident Evil series on the Wii. After playing Resident Evil 4, the series is literally made for the system.

    And I don't think it'll be like the REmake on the Gamecube, I think it'll be a remake that plays more like Resident Evil 4.

    I like the Gamecube version :cmad:

    Resident Evil 4's sales on the Wii are over 1 million. But it won't be a waste of time basically upgrading the graphics on par with Resident Evil 4 and having the gameplay more like Resident Evil 4's.

    A very interesting article concerning the Resident Evil series on the Wii:

    http://www.wii.advancedmn.com/article.php?artid=10244

    And right now things are looking good, Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition's sales are so far 1.3 million (compared to the 1.66 million for the Gamecube and 1.91 million for the Playstation 2), and beating Capcom's expectations of 420,000 units. Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles has so far sold 670,000 units

    Ok, sorry about that, I got confused by what people meant. I didn't stop to think, redo them on Wii meaning, same game but using Wii controls. I thought you guys meant remaking RE2, 3 and maybe Code Veronica like they remade RE 1, full graphics overhaul lol.

    MGS: Twin Snakes was a great game. Easy, but loads of fun.

    I had a lot of fun with Wind Waker, despite all the mixed feelings on it, it was a great Zelda game.

    Like was said, Smash Bros. is an insanely fun game, but Brawl comes out in a month.

    I'm getting it once the price drops. Not only do I want to replay it again, but I want to play it un-mirrored just so it has the same feel to it as Ocarina.

    It would be a full graphics overhall considering that Capcom has expressed interest in remaking the first three Resident Evil games with the RE4: Wii Edition style gameplay and graphics engine.

    Getting the Gamecube version Resident Evil 4 is downright stupid. The Wii version is vastly superior to an already awesome game. Better controls, has the graphic superiority of the Gamecube version, and has all the Playstation 2 extras such as 16:9 support, extra weapons, and Separate Ways.

    Not only that, listening to WHF on Gamecube advice is dumb too. There are far more games on the Gamecube that are worthwhile than just Resident Evil 4.

    I own both versions and I prefer the Ganecube version, The Wii controls felt tacked on to me.

    To the OP, I recommend Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, Amazing game with a deep and original story.

    Not entirely, he's very knowledgable when it comes to the Xbox brand and I would gladly take advice from him when I wonder about it (like when I was considering getting one).

    He's just very biased against non-Microsoft consoles. Especially Nintendo.

    I'm all for that if they want to make 2, 3 and maybe Code Veronica like the remake of RE1. I just figured it would be too costly for them.

    As for what games to get for GC, a lot of people already mentioned a number of great games. Not sure if anyone already said this but if you like horror type games, Eternal Darkness is damn good.

    Resident Evil
    Resident Evil 2
    Resident Evil 3
    Resident Evil: Code Veronica
    Super Mario Sunshine
    Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem

    by the way, remakes of any of the old RE games with RE4: Wii style game play and controls would be fantastic companion pieces to the originals.

    It really wouldn't be that costly to remake the Resident Evil series since developing for the Wii is rather cheap compared to the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and the sales of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles proved that there is a market out there for the Resident Evil series on the Wii.
