    DBZ:BT2 if you and someone else play at a high level of skill [​IMG] . Otherwise it's horrid for single player IMO

    DBZ:BT2 Exactly what rice said, I've played this game so much that its just not fun unless I'm playing it with someone that knows how to play it to the same extent that I do.
    Excite Truck

    One of these rare games that you just can`t go wrong with.
    I don`t play a lot of games, I get bored with them pretty soon, however Zelda kept me glued to the screen til the end. I don`t think I could`ve spent these 50+ hours better. Oh, the memories...


    WarioWare
    Didn`t like it when I was playing alone. However just add a couple of beers, few good friends and you have yourself an amazing evening [​IMG]
    Seriously, I thought I`d just show my mates what Wii can do and suddenly the whole friday was dedicated to WarioWare.
    Plus you can play darts with it. Nuff said.


    SSX Blur
    Difficult to learn, but fun to play. I mostly love it due to it`s unique style and quick, mindless action. And oh, layered background music is also cool.

    Excite Truck
    You better not blink when steering. Plenty of speed and careless driving. It`s fun. Really.

    - Zelda: Just because t is Zelda. [​IMG] Nothing more, nothing less. It just kicks ass.

    - Madden: the only sports game that kicked me in the face and the only sports game that I was interested in playing. Three months now I keep playing it and I enjoy it every single time. [​IMG]




    p.s. is there any gamecube essentials list?

    [edit]: there's not a gamecube essentials list. Please make this a.s.a.p. [​IMG] Need...to find....kick-ass gamecube games. [​IMG]
