The only game I really enjoyed on it was Animal Crossing. It had the worst Zeldas and the game I bought it for (MGS The Twin Snakes) was a massive disappointment.

Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, are the worst Zelda games? That is your opinion. WindWaker was fantastic. The Wii U version, looks great! I played through twice on Wii U. The Gamepad was perfect for that game.

Windwaker was boring as hell.

These folks are looking back through rose colored glasses, that's for sure.

GC may not have had the run like PS2 or the specs of the OG Xbox but I love the system Nintendo does have a solid library on the machine. The Game Boy Player alone was worth it for the machine I can still buy cheap GBA games and play them on my tv.

I loved Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem on GC wish there was a remaster or a sequel. Also Viewtiful Joe 1 and 2, I want a remaster or even a 3rd one love those games. Of course Metroid Prime 1 + 2, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Mario Sunshine, Metal Gear Solid The Twin Snakes, too many to list here 😀

"sixth generations unexpected champion"
The GameCube was great, but it wasn't a champion of the sixth gen. PS2 was and outperformed the GameCube is every single possible way.

No it didn't, as far as POWER was concerned! RE4 on PS2 did not perform nearly as well on PS2, because Gamecube had much more power.

All the consoles that gen were great in different ways.
