    What an unbelievable console. Apart from what’s in this picture, we had Wind Waker, Metroid Prime 1, 2 & 3, F-Zero GX, Resident Evil remake, Tales of Symphonia, Super Mario Sunshine, Mario Kart Double Dash, Baten Kaitos, Super Smash Bros Melee and Pokemon Colosseum.

    The console was a hit-making machine. A shame it didn’t have as much third party support as the PS2 and Xbox.

    Twilight Princess hanging out in the background pretending it’s release debacle wasn’t a huge middle finger to Gamecube owners.

    Man I feel old. When it came out my dad made a deal that if I got straight A’s on my report card we would get one. I got all A’s except for 1 B and I was crushed, but it turns out my dad had already got it

    Of all the consoles I’ve had. I have got to say this is the most nostalgic one to me. And my first console was an NES.

    It just felt like this was such a massive step in gaming technology. I remember my first time playing *any* new game I got for it. It legitimately **wowed** me. Super Mario Sunshine, Super Smash Brothers Melee, Luigi’s Mansion, Metroid Prime, even Animal Crossing which had it’s own super cute and relaxing charm to it…. the list just goes on and on.

    It was a chunky little system and even slightly awkward compared to all of its competitors, but my God, something about it felt *so damn premium.* Maybe it was the smaller disks that was so alluring and new or just the sheer heft to it with that neat lil’ handle, the neat little memory cards you would pop in there, or just the way it opened… oh sweet Jesus, I remember just pushing that button to watch it open over and over. It was so satisfying.

    And then there was the controller. This thing… *this thing* was by far The Most Comfortable controller out there. And still today, remains one of the most comfortable despite all the technological advances and ergonimic designs over the years (*shudders in memory of the N64 controller*). It just felt perfect. And then… AND THEN came the Wavebird controller. Holy fuck, if you had one of these, you felt like the coolest kid in the world.

    This picture just sent me on an absolute blast to the past and I find myself *needing* to reach out to my parents and ask them if they can dig it out of the deepest recess of their storage. What a warming memory and time of my life to remember. It’s a surprise that Purple isn’t my favorite color now after all those fond memories.

    The last time Nintendo fired on all cylinders and competed in the game. In hindsight it was the swan song console. They were just rapid firing out games and started some great franchises as well. Was also the only console that had the complete uncensored BMX XXX game as PlayStation and Xbox were censored. Not to mention Link was easily the best characters in Soul Caliber 2.
