The reason I love the Nintendo GameCube is because it was released with three series that are still going strong today, and it was a benchmark console for the time that it was around. The launch series I’m talking about is The Legend Of Zelda, which had been continued on the console from previous consoles, Metroid Prime, and Pikmin.
The Legend Of Zelda was released on the GameCube in the form of The Wind Waker. The game saw the setting of each Zelda game suddenly change from vast open fields to a world mostly occupied by the ocean, with a few specks of dirt making up the places players were taken to explore, though there was more to the game. ocean of what was seen.
This game was so popular that it has been transferred to the Nintendo Wii U, a console two generations ahead of the GameCube, but thanks to its originality and popularity it has been remade for future audiences.
Metroid Prime was the first game in the Metroid series to come to life in three dimensions. The games had classically been side-scrolling shooter and puzzle games, but now the series was poised to create a new genre, the third-person puzzle shooter. Players needed to progress through a planet with different environments, acquire new powers when they could, and defeat bosses on a larger scale than ever before on consoles.
Since the launch of this game, there has been another one for the GameCube that brought even more to the table in terms of scale and action. The series advanced to the next generation of consoles, and even made the next transition to consoles a generation after that, showing how amazing the original game was for the GameCube.
Pikmin was a game like no other. Players needed to use their different colored Pikmin to collect parts for their ship and escape from a planet they had landed on. Another game was released due to its popularity, and two generations into the future a third installment is being produced for the current generation consoles.
Another reason I loved the Nintendo GameCube was that it had the best graphics in a market where Xbox outpaced it in terms of multiplayer and PlayStation in terms of popularity and notoriety. There have been so many revolutions on the GameCube, and anyone who has one will remember how great it was to play on it. Nintendo has been able to replicate this originality on Wii and Wii U, although not in the same way that it was achieved with GameCube, since it was a console ahead of its time and very little appreciated by many, but at least I and some other people loved it. while it was in effect.
