One of the minor tragedies of gaming history was the collective dismissal of the Nintendo Gamecube. Derided with nicknames like The Lunchbox or Kiddiecube, the masses wrote off Nintendo's little console as a failure before it even launched. It was a "toy" rather than a machine worthy of "mature" gamers' time, a comment rooted in ignorance that rang completely hollow. Whatever its faults, the Gamecube was perfectly capable of delivering quality entertainment for adults (as well as kids).
Case in point: Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, an outstanding survival horror title that landed with a resounding thud despite being published by Nintendo of America.
