From TheGamer: "It's hard to imagine but back in 2005, it was a big deal that Resident Evil 4 was a limited-time GameCube exclusive, regardless of how huge this entry became. Over the past 16 years, you can still see its influences in modern gaming today.
Nintendo is often seen as a family-friendly company (especially in the 2000s), so it was a surprise when they announced that Capcom and the Big N struck a deal to make Resident Evil 4 exclusive to the GameCube. They even authorized an official controller for the game that looked like a bloody chainsaw! Resident Evil 4 brought terror to the little purple box and high-stakes action never before seen in gaming up to that point."
