GameCube games for Nintendo newcomers

Given Wii's remarkable sales figures (and GameCube's relatively disappointing sales,) it seems safe to assume that many Wii owners missed out on GameCube. Fortunately for gamers incognizant of the satisfaction to be found within tiny purple cubes, Wii is compatible with all GameCube software. Landmark GameCube releases from years gone by can be played on Wii and enjoyed by players who may have never had a chance to experience them.

On Saturday's edition of Infendo Radio, Blake and Scott discussed this topic when listener Paul phoned in asking for their GameCube recommendations. Their guidance is included in this list of the best GameCube games for 'Cube-deprived Nintendo newcomers. ( Metroid Prime, Pikmin 2, Beyond Good and Evil, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, F-Zero GX , GameCube, Killer 7, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, Pikmin, Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Smash Bros. Melee, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Wii)

The PS2 took videogames by storm back in those days.. As a Nintendo fan i was forced to abandon ship.. Im glad the tables have turned once again this gen.. In Nintendos favor..

That is the wonderful story on how i missed out on alot of gamecube titles.. By being forced to convert to the best console ever made.. The PS2

Nice but useless list...
... cause for some dumb and never explained reason, Gamecube fans are hardly found in shops anymore, and especially the good titles are extremely rare to come across. (here in Holland)

Which is weird, cause it's not like the Wii has that many must-have titles yet, so you'd think, with the BC, that Nintendo would at least keep some of their best Cube titles on the shelf, maybe give them a new cover with 'Wii-able' on it, or something.

So what use is a must-have Gamecube-games list, if they are all extremely hard to find!?
Nintendo should re-release some of those classics, for a willing and bored Wii-crowd.

Tales was in the top 5 best RPGs of last gen
