Can’t wait for the Wii to be released later this year and you are bored waiting for it? Then why not re-visit some of the classics for the under-appreciated GameCube, and if you don’t have them then go out and buy them because the Wii is backwards compatible for all GameCube games.

1. Resident Evil 4
For the fourth game in the Resident Evil series Capcom decided to make significant changes in a franchise that was beginning to show its age after almost ten years since the original was released for the Playstation and in doing so they created one of the best survival horror games in recent years and arguably the best game for the GameCube in the final months of its life. It should be noted as the game that single handedly made Resident Evil into a cool series again, after many people were beginning to become very frustrated with videos of doors opening, fixed camera angles and simplistic puzzles. It’s success also showed gamers that the GameCube isn’t a kiddies console.

2. Super Smash Bros Melee
While Super Smash Bros Melee didn’t add a lot to the previous N64 game, bar a few extra characters and stages, there wasn’t much room for improvement to begin with. But even with little new it still managed to be one of the best games for the GameCube and because of its highly addictive multiplayer modes as well as its appeal to gamers of all ages it is the best selling Gamecube game across the world.

3. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
Many people may have been dissappointed with Wind Waker due to its cel shaded graphics which many people labelled childish, but Nintendo’s gamble paid off as the game was still massively popular, and the graphics added appeal to younger audiences. While it may not have lived up to the reputation of Orcarina of Time it is still and epic adventure that is a must for all.

4. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
There will always be arguments over which of the two 3D Metroid games for the ‘Cube is superior, but for me the second will be the better of the two as Retro Studios learnt from the mistake of the first and decided that multiplayer was now needed. The graphics are a rare example of what the GameCube is really capable of.

5. Mario Kart: Double Dash
Many people didn’t like the gimmicky ‘two drivers; one kart’ concept of the game, but it undeniable that the gameplay remains as addictive as it’s N64 predecessor. The multiplayer modes in the game, like the excellent Shine Thief, make it the second best multiplayer game on the ‘Cube.

6. F-Zero GX

7. Super Monkey Ball 2

8. Super Mario Sunshine

9. Viewtiful Joe

10. Pikmin 2
