In this episode we take a look at the Nintendo GameCube and analyze the role it played during the 6th generation console wars, as well as its relevance in present day gaming. It may or may not be Nintendo's best console, but it is certainly my new favorite.

    I love the Luigi/Arrested Development joke!

    Vindication. I always felt the gamecube had a better offering than the other two. the games were just better at being... games. And I feel the same way about the undersold Wii U actually. Curiously, I find the Wii less impressive, even though it gets called the winner of that generation a lot.

    I always think this girl would think someone thats good at games would be like a God to her...she thinks her BF is so good at games, while not horrible, still middle of the pack...she is just comparing it to herself, which, lets face it, if Animal Crossing is your favorite game...well, you aren't looking for a challenge.

    "The cube is the only one still fighting" The cube was also dropped off a building by Morgan Webb along with an Xbox and PS2 and was the only one functional afterwards.

    "Metroid Prime needs its own episode of girlfriend reviews." THIS. That game alone justified the gamecube. I would love for you to review it. I played it around the same time as half life 2, and while half life seemed more technologically advanced, metroid prime just constantly made me think "This is beautiful. I'm so lucky to be playing this game." Probably my favorite game of all time. Please review. :)

    So the learning of this story is that Gamers are little crying babies that do not know what they want and, in the end, Nintendo was right. As always.

  • Rohan

    You should do a girl friend review on Titanfall 2 single player! It’s only 6 hours long and you won’t even know the hours pass by cause it’s that damn good! Plus the multiplayer is loads of fun with a high skill ceiling. This game is call of duty on roids! And yes am copy pasting this comment on every video of yours, please fulfill my wish

  • TheSilverPhoenix100

    The funny thing about the gamecube is it aged the best out of that console generation, the PS2 like you said is basically an inferior playstation 3/4 and honestly though it massacured the other 2 in terms of sales I dont find myself going back to many ps2 era games (especially since those games now have HD remakes that are far superior) to and the xbox basically has the same problem. The gamecube though has more games that were unique and fun and i constantly find myself wanting to go back and play those, and honestly I wonder if thats a big reason the phoenix known as the Wii was such a hit. Also Luigi's mansion may not look like much but its a pretty fun game and the closest we will ever get to a good ghostbusters game

    That's why I love Nintendo. They're not afraid to make risk. They're constantly innovating their products even if some of them ends up in failure.

    The GameCube controller is my all time favourite controller. I had some great memories with that console. I can't believe I lost my GameCube during a house move. My ex-flatmate ended up with it instead :'(

    I really liked the GameCube. It had some great Zelda and Metroid games. That was the generation I stopped being Nintendo exclusive and bought a PS2, but I thought they were both awesome consoles.

  • bigangryscotsman

    The genius of how Nintendo make their consoles is that each one is designed to be different from its predecessors, unlike Xbox and PlayStation which are simply just hardware upgrades. It pretty much guarantees that years after the other consoles of that generation are out of date people can still go back and enjoy Nintendos older consoles and have a fairly different experience in each of the older generations.

    Speaking of Gamecube games, you should review the Resident Evil 1 Remake. It was originally on Gamecube but they have it on the PS4 store too. Maybe for Halloween?

    Ah yes, the fight between the PS2 and Xbox over 'realistic' graphics which are so horribly outdated no-one talks about them anymore. The gamecube had so many gems. They forgot Pikmin, Animal Crossing and Smash just to name a few more. There were also some excellent 3rd party titles like baten kaitos.
