GameRevolution's Top 25 GameCube Games Of All Time (Full List)

Posted on Friday, July 5 @ 11:14:00 PST by Alex_Osborn



15. Killer7

Before No More Heroes, Lollipop Chainsaw, or Shadows of the Damned, there was Killer7, a dark and twisted action game that put Grasshopper Manufacture and Suda51 on the map. The moody and evocative cel-shaded art style is undoubtedly its main draw, but the innovative yet clunky gameplay proved to be a turn-off to some. It also challenged the notion that Nintendo's purple console was simply a machine for children, thanks to its mature themes. Suda is known to make wacky games that think outside the box, and for that very reason, it's one of GameCube's most unique and finest.

14. Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader

When the GameCube first launched, everyone was looking to see how Nintendo's new box would push games forward visually, and Star Wars Rogue Squadron II was the undoubted showpiece. Whether you're a fan of Star Wars or not, there's a whole lot to love about Rogue Leader. It's visually stunning, even today, and fills the void left by two lackluster StarFox games that came years later. This was easily the best launch title for the GameCube, and will go down in history as one of the greatest experiences to ever grace the platform.



13. Viewtiful Joe

Capcom brought over a handful of noteworthy titles to the GameCube, one of the most incredible being Viewtiful Joe. This cel-shaded side-scrolling beat 'em up was an absolute marvel to behold and a downright blast to play. The goofy story is centered around Joe, a movie fan who's girlfriend is captured within a film. Naturally, it's up to him to enter Movieland and save her by taking down each member of the Jadow. It's charming, light-hearted, and downright silly, but in the best possible way imaginable. Seriously, if you have any sense of humor and enjoy beat 'em ups, give this one a look. It holds up quite well.



12. Pikmin

While the sequel already appeared a bit earlier on this list, we couldn't help but include Olimar's first adventure because, let's face it, there's nothing quite like the original. I remember coming home from school eager to plop down in front of my TV and hunt for ship parts with an army of colorful Pikmin at my side. There was nothing else like it at the time, and to this day there still really isn't. Pikmin introduced a wholly unique concept that could have only been dreamed up by the brilliant mind of Shigeru Miyamoto.



11. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

The Paper Mario series got its start on the Nintendo 64 and entered a new realm of awesome on the GameCube with The Thousand-Year Door. Like its predecessor this Mario RPG is set in a whimsical world made out of paper that is loaded with charm and humor. It has a turn-based battle system that is not only reminiscent of the original Paper Mario, but also the SNES classic, Super Mario RPG. If you hold a special place in your heart for Nintendo's pipe-traveling plumber, you simply must play this game.
