    I'm finally ready to finish up an era on the GC and move onto the Wii. I'm finishing up the Resident Evil series along with Killer 7. What other games should I check out before I devote more time to my Wii? I've already played a lot of the other greats, like the Metroid Primes, Zelda, and Viewtiful Joe. I need other games that are worth playing, in your opinions. I've got Tales of Symphonia marked as another game I should try, but I dunno. Thanks.

    F-Zero GX? What an odd choice. You want this guy to break his controllers or what?

    Did you try Chibi Robo? It's pretty fun. Mario Strikers is fun, too, but who cares, a sequel is planned on Wii.

    If you haven't played it to death, Monkey Ball is fun, too. I recommend both as they have different mini-games, so it really depends on whether you have friends that like video games or not.

    Hmmm... I dunno, Resident Evil 1 for the Gamecube is pretty sweet. I've always liked the Sonic Adventure series do to the challenge.

    Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean along with its recently released prequel, Baten Kaitos Origins. Great RPGs. I loved the first and I'm still playing the 2nd one. Fun combat system and good storyline.

    May not be pretty but has excellent unique gameplay -- Cubivore (1st party game they wouldn't release and Atlus did.) Also some hate, some love... Starfox Adventures. If you like 'zelda' like platformers and are not a starfox snob that just has to have it arwings or nothing it has a nice story and good gameplay.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds! Great game, especially if you happen to like Buffy.

    Let me second the recommendation for Eternal Darkness. It's awesome!

    Also Super Smash Bros. Melee is a good one if you have friends.

    The game I personally liked best for the gamecube is Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat, it's a tad short, but I enjoyed every moment of it.
    And for multiplayer games, Super Smash Brothers: Melee and Mario Karts are also always fun ofcourse...

    Here are two games I enjoyed that nobody really takes about.

    True Crime: Streets of L.A. was a lot of fun if you like GTA type games.

    Dead to Rights - Linear game and not too long, but very challenging on hardest mode was a lot of fun for me at least.

    I just bought F-Zero GX for my Wii yesterday [​IMG] It's awesome. Supports both Progressive scan and 16:9. Looks better than most Wii games and it was made in 2003 [​IMG]

    So far it's an amazing game, incredibly difficult but amazing.
