3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Cerus Corporation Representative on April 10 2004
I'll be the first one to admit that if you're looking for brilliant graphics and a ton of extras, you should go buy a PS2. But where it may lack just a bit in graphics and bonuses, the GameCube is an amazing system. Don't believe me? First of all, take a look at the wide array of games: everything from Super Mario Sunshine to Skies of Arcadia Legends to Eternal Darkness. Xbox and PS2 just can't boast that variety; Xbox seems to focus mainly on shooters (booooooooorrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiinnnnnnnngg) and PS2 has mainly games for teenagers.
Secondly, though a lot of people seem to complain about GC controllers, they're very easy to use and quite comfortable no matter what your hand size. I find that the controllers for the other two systems are bulky, have too many buttons in the same place, and are overall awkward to use (for example, the huge distance between the side you hold on to and the control stick).
Oh, and back to games, aside from having a large variety, GC also has some of the -best- games. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker won numerous awards last year, including several Best Game of the Year ones. Super Smash Bros. Melee is the best, longest-lasting fighting game I've ever played, Super Mario Sunshine is a very feel good game if you're frustrated with your other games, and Skies of Arcadia Legends is just the best game ever. You can't play -any- of these classics on any other system!
And the games have one more little bonus: nostalgia. Who hasn't spent a joyous afternoon playing Mario or Zelda games? Nintendo is responsible for introducing some of the most memorable video game icons ever, ones that no matter how hard they try, the other companies just can't match.

Why go for second best when you can get a GameCube? April 10 2004

Nintendo is responsible for introducing some of the most memorable video game icons ever, ones that no matter how hard they try, the other companies just can't match. Sure, we've got a lot of familiarity with Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank, but they just aren't legends yet. Mario and Link are.
Whew, you actually read all that? You must be seriously considering buying a GC, then. My final advice to you is to just stop considering and go out and buy one. And Skies of Arcadia Legends. You won't regret it!
