I highly recommend Rogue Squadron 2.

It's a MUST HAVE for Star Wars fans like me and let's don't forget Battle for Endor.....the most epic battle of any video game by far.

Rogue Squadron 3 isn't bad either as long you disregard on foot missions.

Pretty much all of my favorite games have been mentioned. I didn't see Super Monkey Ball 2 or Mario Power Tennis anywhere though, definitely must-own games for the Gamecube.

Here's one everyone with a GameCube should have, and so many overlook. And it should be purchased on the GameCube specifically, though it was made for the other platforms...

"Metal Arms: A Glitch in the System".

It's a TPS in the vein of "Ratchet & Clank" with aan All-Robot slant to it, about a little mechanical soldier in a lone fight against evil robotic invaders. It's jokes are sometimes hysterically funny, with great voice work, and the gameplay is like R&C-Meets-Halo. You play through the campaign, and as you find hidden eggs (in the form of gold gears, or the like) and finish the story, you unlock maps, power-ups, remote-control Giant Robot suits, tanks, and other insanity for the multi-player. Now, I'm going to say something here, and I think the assembled brothers & sisters of the Legacy Forums will appreciate the gravity of this next statement but I mean it...

If you have a good-sized TV, four controllers, and three friends who know how to split-screen party like rock stars...

... And snacks, you're going to need a phone to order pizza...

... "Glitch" is the best multiplayer of that or any previous generation, in that format. "Halo" is good... Everyone calm down, I'm givin' the big game credit... But for GameCube owners, there is no finer package of solid fun. Wild story mode that'll keep you searching every corner of the levels for unlockables, whilst it amuses you with pooting robot baddies you can dispatch with a variety of upgradable weaponry. Then when you're done, you can old-school on friends for entire 24hr sessions, never getting sick of the maps & toys the game offers to torture each other with.

It's a stupendous game, and I NEVER see it on anyone's list when talking about great games to have, especially for the GameCube. So you've got a lot of good suggestions from all the other posts, but make sure and look into the ONE game in mine!

;)

You'll be VERY glad you did!

It' s a incredible and funny game but insanely difficult neverless, see lack of lock on is heavy to digest.

PS so did you try energy airforce simulation combat game i suggested you?

The lack of lock-on wasn't difficult for me, but I can see where it might be a problem for some. I thought the aiming was really smooth and I was able to breeze most bits of the game. I'm gonna go back and play it this winter because I've been meaning to. Such a great game.

As far as the other game, no I haven't gotten a copy yet. I've been in the middle of moving to a different state, so I've been away from game-hunting. But the end of the month, all that is over and i am free again to roam the flea markets & resale shops!!!

Alien Hominid is a great game on the GC, especially with a friend or two to play it with.

Dont sell your gamecube unless you plan getting a wii. Take it from me, I regret selling it and most of the games. Only reason is the only chance to play these games again is hoping for them to be sold via the Wii U. Unless you just go dolphin (we allowed to talk about that...? Will edit if not)

Personally I'm going Wii U/ Wii (for GC games)/ 3DS/ PC. With the way xbox is going its going to be only have Halo, and even htough its my favorite franchise, its not enough to stay on Xbox and pay for gold next gen. But thats just my persoanl reasoning.

I agree, I would not sell. All of the consoles I've sold I've regretted and trust me, it'll be expensive rebuilding your collection.
