    To continue the trend of "Must-Have" forum posts, I've decided to start a new one for a console that I'm sure many of you hold near and dear to your heart...

    The GameCube.

    So what are you favorites? Which are must-haves?

    Here are mine:

    Wind Waker
    Twilight Princess
    Metroid Prime
    Eternal Darkness
    Super Mario Sunshine
    MGS: Twin Snakes
    Smash Bros. Melee

    And I actually like Star Fox Adventures quite a bit. Am I crazy?

    Mario Kart Double Dash
    Mario Golf Toadstool Tour
    Mario Power Tennis
    WarioWorld
    Mario Party 6 & 7
    Super Mario Sunshine
    and I really wish I had WarioWare, but I don't.

    These are the games I've played. I missed out on some of the better games in the GameCube's library, because I couldn't afford it. I bought a GameCube myself, after it had dropped to $99. My dad ended up buying most of the games in our collection.

    I wanted to give Ikaruga a try but never got to it.

    Tales of Symphonia

    The rest on my list are already mentioned.

    You know, when I think back, the GameCube really had an incredible "launch window" of games. Smash Bros., Luigis Mansion, Rogue Squadron, Eternal Darkness, Metroid Prime.

    Viewtiful Joe dawg. That shit IS the shit.

    Although it was on PS2 as well, so you may already have played it.

    Melee came so early in the GCN's life that it was kind of inseparable from the system for a lot of people. Seems appropriate that people go back to that and say it's still the best Smash game.

    I'm still of the opinion that the first Smash Bros. was the best.

    Same goes with Mario Kart. Say what you want about Double Dash or 64, but nothing beats the SNES version.

    I'm always surprised how people like Double Dash. I never got into it and therefore never bought it.

    And sorry Alex, but Mario Kart DS is the best Mario Kart (or possibly MK7 on 3DS... nah, that one is in second).

    If you didn't like Double Dash, you obviously had no bros.
