Let's see...

Wii:

From the top of my head: Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Dungeon (I wish for a sequel someday), Rune Factory Frontier, Red Steel 2 (so much better than the first one), Zack & Wiki, House of the Dead: Overkill, Little King's Story, Opoona, or Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition (All the content of PS2, the better visuals of GC a bit improved, and three different control schemes make it still my favourite version of the game, Wiimote + Nunchuk is fantastic) are but just a few of the games I appreciate on the system.

When you stop and look Wii got a quite nice amount of fun stuff. It has also many tiny games like Marble Saga: Kororinpa or Geometry War: Galaxies, which are very simplistic yet really fun.

Gamecube:

Now this one got more "standard" third party support. Some of my instant favourites would be Viewtiful Joe 2 (1 is also awesome, but 2 has a bit more variety and extra content) and Gotcha Force (I didn't expect it to be SO addicting) from Capcom, Gladius (pretty decent often forgoten strategy RPG), Skies of Arcadia: Legends (ony of my favourite games all around), Super Monkey Ball 2, Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Heroes (I never played them until the seventh gen was ending, but man, I've been loving those two quite a bit) from Sega, and I've also put a rather big amount of hours on Ribbit King and SSX Tricky.

Beyond Good & Evil and Crazy Taxi are pretty good picks too, I never got tired of old priests swearing and doing backflips to leave your car and angry women asking you to take them to Pizza Hut right after you almost crash into them.

I could talk about games for both systems for hours.

Yeah, sadly, it won't look, play or feel like Beyond Good & Evil 1. For the looks of it, you'll get your patented "Ubisoft modern open world game design" though.

Looking back at my games, I'd like to add to my previous post how much I love that besides RE4, with a GC/Wii you can play many Resident Evil games. Resident Evil 1 Remake was very impressive back then, and having RE 2 and 3, while straight ports, look better, control better (Type-C control is the best) and come in a single disc, so no swapping. Even RE3 comes without censorship on the NTSC-US (for some reason!). Then you have Code Veronica too, and Resident Evil Zero it's also a decent game (although I found the story a bit too "unimportant", and those leech zombies were a bigger pain in the ass than original tank controls).

The only thing I really miss is a way to play the original RE1. While the Remake is fantastic, I still love how cheesy the game is, and the voice-acting and dialogue is stuff of legends. So many silly quotes... But eh, that's what my PS2 is there for.

Another series I kinda forgot was the Prince of Persia games, which were also pretty decent. In fact Wii ended having the better version of The Forgotten Sands. It's actually a completely different game, with different story and characters, not a downport but what seems to be a salvaged previous cancelled game. The platforming gets crazy. It deserves the praise.

This thread made me realize, that I mostly have Nintendo games for GC & Wii :yaywii: at least for GameCube I have some third party games, that I really like:
Splinter Cell, Spyro: A Hero's Tail, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, WWE Day of Reckoning 1+2.

The Wii wasn't a "sit on your ass and button mash" console. That's why it, unlike the failed Gamecube and the failed Wii U, was the most popular/best selling console in Nintendo's history. And it was Wii Sports along with the fitness and dance games that made the difference. So a thread like this is a joke without mentioning these titles.

Kororinpa is a gem, a switch version with hd rumble would be great, same for boom blox.

I have some fond memories of the Rabbids games, although not sure how they'll fare today.
