    I'd very much like to own a copy of Gadget Racers, Frogger Beyond and Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance but these three games go for ridiculously expensive prices. I could always get the PS2 version of Gadget Racers but I'd buy it more as a collectible.

    Most multiplatforms I have are on Original Xbox and a few on PS2, not a whole lot on GameCube.

    I almost don't believe you have all those GC games but don't own either Zelda
    These are the best games on the system IMO
    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

    ALSO,
    Good multiplayer:
    WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!
    Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance
    Timesplitters 2

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Phantasy Star Online Ver.2 (has DLC added in), Tales (yeah, with Lloyd), Mario Kart DD (three-item beatings), Crazy Taxi (HEY, HEY, ARE YOY READY?)

    Can't fully childhood right now with your list having pretty much everything. I know there are more good/great games.
    -------
    SKIES OF ARCADIA. That's one gem you need in your life. Makes you wonder how everyone fucked up so bad in the RPG-area.

    Pikmin is great if you don't stress the time limit too much. Usually people prefer Pikmin 2, but I thought it was tedious and all the time elements and randomness were completely pointless - the game took more steps back than forward.

    Resident evil 0-3 + Code Veronica you can get on Steam and other consoles, but are nice collectibles and it's justified to have 0-1 on the original platform. Donkey Kong Jungle Beat for a nice curiosity for your bongo controller.

    It is also odd you are missing out Metroid Prime 1-2, especially the first one. Most people also think Legend of Zeldas are must buy, I have them on my collection, but not too fond of them. A lot of people also like Baten Kaitos, and it's one of the only JRPG's I've played through since the card system was quite addicting, though it was otherwise incoherent experience - the game and battles drag since everything is card based and attacks can only hit one target. Wario World was also quite fun game.

    Good multiplatform games:
    - Timesplitters 2
    - Timesplitters: Future Perfect
    - Metal Arms: Glitch in the System
    - Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance
    - Beyond Good & Evil
    - Viewtiful Joe

    My current (and most likely final) collection picture HERE

    SpongeBob: Battle for Bikini Bottom I have it on the Original Xbox but thanks for the others, I'll check them out.

    I have Wind Waker and Twilight Princess for the Wii U so I decided to stick with that. Got TimeSplitters 2 on Original Xbox and recently, I purchased Mario Party 5 which is said to be the best Mario Party on GameCube though I've only been playing it by myself (not as fun as playing with other people locally).

    Not a fan of WarioWare but since it's on the GameCube I'll check it out.

    Hey, I do have Metroid Prime but it's the Trilogy Collection on Wii, this way I own the Prime series in its entirety.

    Thanks for your other suggestions too. One in particular, Viewtiful Joe is one that I've considered though not yet purchased.

    Btw, already have Beyond Good & Evil on the OX and PC (Uplay). I'd love to own the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1-3 on GameCube or Xbox but the prices were a lot more reasonable to get for PS2. I'm not sure if I own TMNT3.. nope just 1 and 2. I'll try to hunt down a copy.

    Cubivore. 10/10 action adventure game with a bit of a twist. Not the prettiest game exactly, but easily one of my favorites from back in the day.

    Cel Damage is also a pretty fun multiplayer vehicular combat game, if you don't already own it for Xbox/PS2/the remakes that came out a bit ago.

    Did no one say ssx tricky or tony Hawk pro skater? Aggressive inline? O_O

    Lack of sports game players here, even mlb slugfest or something (If that was on there) How bout fighting games, Capcom vs snk 2, Mortal Kombat, Soul Calibur 2 (WITH LINK) Mega man battle network transmission, Megaman X collection, Anniversary collection, Command mission. Beach spikers Sonic riders, Shadow the hedgehog (opinions may vary)

    Just look up anyone top 10 Game cube vidoes on youtube and ignore the ones that put resident evil 4 as number one, :P

    Such a nostalgic game. I loved it as a teen and it's still fun but completing the story mode (or whatever it's called) just feels more of a chore.

    I do have sports' games on GameCube they're just all Mario-related. :P Capcom Vs. SNK 2, Sonic Riders, Mortal Kombat have on Xbox. I couldn't say no to Soul Calibur 2 on GameCube because it has Link as a playable character.

    Mega Man Network Transmission is a game I'm hunting and should get one in not too long, hopefully.

    This is my list of PS2 and Xbox games, I think it's up to date.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Pretty sure the EO in the title stands for easy operation, as in the selectable option for simple controls for using special moves with single button inputs, similar to Marvel vs capcom easy setting or Super street fighter IV 3ds version. :P

    But i did forget a few, like X-men legends, that is a good one, and x-men next demention, Surprised no one mentioned spider man 2 at all, i thought it was everyone favorite. There is also wario world. I would suggest final fantasy but need GC to GBA link cable to play that, as well as 4 swords adventure.

    It's still the best Spider-Man game to date but if we're lucky the PS4 Spider-Man will blow our minds.

    Have it on my list to get it soon.

    I ordered Game Boy Advance Player last week but just noticed it doesn't come with the GBA cable.

    That's another goner. It's going for more than the RRP so if I ever do own it, it'll be by random chance of luck.

    Well gameboy player won't work with the game anyway, it uses the game cube system to play GBA game on tv, you can't play both at same time :P

    To be honest i wish nintendo made stuff like that for wii and Wii u to play NDS, 3DS, or GBA games on console, that would been nice. Progressive high resolution upscaled Portable games. :)

    Wait, I can't play GBA games on GameCube with a Game Boy Advance but rather only the GameCube controller? That seems kind of unnecessarily backwards.

    Think I have Genma Onimusha for Xbox already.
