To continue the trend of "Must-Have" forum posts, I've decided to start a new one for a console that I'm sure many of you hold near and dear to your heart...

The GameCube.

So what are you favorites? Which are must-haves?

Here are mine:

Wind Waker
Twilight Princess
Metroid Prime
Eternal Darkness
Super Mario Sunshine
MGS: Twin Snakes
Smash Bros. Melee

And I actually like Star Fox Adventures quite a bit. Am I crazy?

Mario Kart Double Dash
Mario Golf Toadstool Tour
Mario Power Tennis
WarioWorld
Mario Party 6 & 7
Super Mario Sunshine
and I really wish I had WarioWare, but I don't.

These are the games I've played. I missed out on some of the better games in the GameCube's library, because I couldn't afford it. I bought a GameCube myself, after it had dropped to $99. My dad ended up buying most of the games in our collection.

You know, when I think back, the GameCube really had an incredible "launch window" of games. Smash Bros., Luigis Mansion, Rogue Squadron, Eternal Darkness, Metroid Prime.

Although it was on PS2 as well, so you may already have played it.

Melee came so early in the GCN's life that it was kind of inseparable from the system for a lot of people. Seems appropriate that people go back to that and say it's still the best Smash game.

I'm still of the opinion that the first Smash Bros. was the best.

Same goes with Mario Kart. Say what you want about Double Dash or 64, but nothing beats the SNES version.

I'm always surprised how people like Double Dash. I never got into it and therefore never bought it.

And sorry Alex, but Mario Kart DS is the best Mario Kart (or possibly MK7 on 3DS... nah, that one is in second).

If you didn't like Double Dash, you obviously had no bros.
