Since I'm going to do so, I'm asking which games you think are good and are worth the money, suggestions?

Halo and Halo 2! And Burnout 3!
Well Halo 2 since it is coming out on November 9th but I don't know if that is the same for Canada.:D

I would ask TiE personally but right now he is sleeping.:D

But with your GC there is a new Zelda coming out, I hear it is the sequel to the orcarina of time. Is there a way to have both of the consols? If it is possible with your parents that is.

Halo and KOTOR are a must. Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War is a pretty fun (if far-fetched) WWII shooter with Xbox Live support. If you're into flight combat games, you might want to give Secret Weapons over Normandy a shot or perhaps Crimson Skies.

The only problem with these games is that there are PC versions for all of these as well if you prefer PC gaming. Still, being able to play Halo 2 years before the PC market will get it is a pretty good reason alone to get an Xbox.

I have a question for you, though. Why are you going to trade your GameCube?! Surely there are plenty of good games for it. Metroid Prime, Viewtiful Joe, Super Smash Bros. Melee and Rogue Squadron 2 are all great to name a few.

Thats my birthday. w00t.

So far what I'm gonna get, since I'm gonna have roughly 430 dollars to spend on games (and games only. I think, since I'm doing a giant trade)

Games to get so far:
Metal Arms
Crimson Skies
Halo
Halo 2
Fable
Ninja Gaidan
Prince of Persia
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow

Now, I MIGHT be able to have 2 systems, I'll just sell all the games and use the money to buy an Xbox, IF possible.

Yes, I know theres a bunch of great games for GC, but I have most of those, and I've gotten tired of playing them.


EDIT: Updated games to get list

What about that new Zelda game that is coming out sometime, I don't know when, but it looks cool to me.:) If I were you I would keep the GC because of that.

If not, you could give it to me.:D

Fable comes out in September. If you like Action/RPG's you want Fable.

Chronicles of Riddick:Escape from Butcher Bay was super sweet

Ninja Gaiden

Prince of Persia

Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow absolutely Rocks the Socks on live

Crimson Skies is also awesome on Live....


:D

Get Halo.

Riddick, and Ninja Gaiden.

Most of the other games I got I think are available on other platforms as well.... so I don't know.

God bless you for ditching the gamecube. That system has like one good game, Metroid Prime, and despite that, it's just another crappy Nintendo "made to keep up with the Jones' Console" :rolleyes:

;) Ugh. I don't like SSBM *at all*. Total lack of, well, anything interesting. Perhaps some people can play games without any sort of story whatsoever, but I certainly can't. As far as I'm concerned, it's just the mark of lazy developers.

;) Rouge Leader: No complaint here. Viewtiful Joe: holy crap, what the hell is this game about anyway?! Mario Kart: Say it with me, "Deja Vu." SSMD: Who wants to watch Kirby eat up another person and crap him out?

Viewtiful Joe doesn't look interesting to me. SSBM is great, but I got tired of it and havn't played it since. I've beaten metroid prime, and I have rogue leader (not the newest one, and I don't really care for it for some reason) Mario Karts nice, but I'd rather have something else to play.

Rogue Leader was pretty, but the controls bothered me, and I get motion sickness on most flying games. Never played Viewtiful Joe, i'm sick of al the Mario crap....give Mario a rest already....and Super Smash Bros. Melee....was just icky.....

No, as a matter of fact it was horrible. One of the worst games I ever played on Gamecube. :mad:

I got a GC extremely cheap, only own 3 games on it.... Rogue Leader, Rebel Strike and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles.... My first console love is my Ps2, and I have no real desire to play anything on the XBox....got KOTOR and Morrowind on PC, not interested in Halo(could play it on PC anyways)....and the rest, well......... *yawns*

I wasnt a huge Zelda fan, but the new Zelda does look great, so Im glad I have a cube around to check that out. I am also interested in playing sonic heroes and pokemon colisseum one day, borrowed from friends when they finish with em :p GO TEAM ROCKET :p

when 'square/enix' make soemthin for the snot system then I might check it out.....and rest assured I would never pay anything more than 30% rrp for any system... :p

I'm not too keen about people who bash GameCube/nintendo for being "kiddie".

Fair enough, Mario is a fat, useless git plumber, but people seem to overlook the shear quality of Nintendo gameplay.

One thing that makes me hold onto my Cube... Legend of Zelda.

anything to suggest these claims? Personally if the gameplay is excellent who cares what the character and rating of the game are. I find that atleast 95% of all gamecube games have good gameplay, where as with xbox and PS2 it's about 50-60%

oh and for the record, the dreamcast rocked.

No, I mean, that every single game for GC, except Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike, sucked...I hated their gameplay. The ones that were for XBOX, GC, PS2, or PC also, were not good on GC, because of graphics...and controller sux.

Now, I could only get 1 game since all the games I owned for the gamecube had gone down so much in price, each were worth around 20 bucks. So, I got Halo (What a surprise!) Damn awesome FREAKING ADDICTING GAME. erk, I can't take my eyes off the TV.

Halo sucks, especially on Console Multiplayer. How the heck do you see players that are 100 meters away on a 4-screen tv? :p

(Kotor was alright, by the way. Not nearly as bad as Tie says, but it had game stopping bugs on two different save games of mine...)

XBConnect is "Next Generation" XBox Tunnel Software for Windows that allows you to play Microsoft XBox System link games over the internet.

So in other words, I use my computer so I can play online on a crappier x-box to play a game my computer could easily play.

You consolers are getting wackier every day!

Multiplayer is awesome, My brother was the Soviet and he kept leading his men into my teams machine gun fire! (No, in MP you don't just attack eachother, you recruit squads of troops to follow you, my brother liked sending them into battle, as he sat in his bunker, watching me mow them down) You take the flag pole in the center of the map and put your flag on it, its like Domination and you have to keep the pole for a amount of time. Definantly buy this game :D its really cheap!
