    With the recent purchase of a Wii, my sons and I have rediscovered Gamecube games in a big way, mainly F-Zero GX and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

    Wario World has been getting a lot of play as well as Alien Hominid.

    Has anyone else had a similar resurgence of interest in Gamecube stuff after getting a Wii - if so what games?

    My GC Library was extremely slim.

    Zelda: Collection
    Zelda Wind Waker
    Zelda Four Swords
    PSO
    Star Wars Rogue Leader
    Star Fox Adventure

    Interestingly enough, when I got the Wii, I was more into NES and SNES games than GC. Maybe it was the recentness of having played them or just that aside from Zelda, I didn't have the desire to relive most of them.

    It's been great for the kids. I bought my older son a used copy of Spiderman 2, which is a better game than 3 or Ultimate or Friend or Foe, and has the added benefit of being cheap. My younger son is crazy about Wallace and Grommit, but there is virtually zero merchandising for it (at least in the US), so we were happy to find a GC game with the characters. Granted, it's not very good, but he has fun so that's all that matters.

    I bought a couple of collections (Mega Man, Sonic) used, since they're good deals compared to VC. Eventually I'll pick up MGS Twin Snakes and Zelda Wind Waker. I played through about half of Metroid Prime which I picked up for $5, but it just didn't really do anything for me and I eventually put it down.

    We definitely don't use the GC functionality as much as the VC, but it's good for the kids and occasional use.

    I have 4 gamecube games, which is nothing compared to my other systems. I was really disappointed with gamecube.

    It took A LOT of effort (and I do mean a lot), but playing Four Swords (the Zelda game where you had to play with the Gameboy SP) was the most fun I have had playing a video game with 3 other people. It topped Mario Kart or Golden Eye. Coop madness with 4 Links and fighting over rupies, keeping the Red Wand away from your destructive friend who set everything on fire, and picking up your slow friend and throwing him over a ledge when he couldn't quite make the jump over or when he was taking his sweet time and the rest of the team was ready to move on. And then voting people the most greedy and the most helpful at the end of a level. No Diablo, Champions of Norrath or any such game has ever measured up to how much fun that was. But it just took a lot of effort to get everyone together with their SP, hook it up to the gamecube and get a game going.

    If they could make that game a bit easier to access on the Wii, I would be all over that.

    F-Zero GX just might be the most fun I have ever had playing a video game... EVER.

    I sold my Gamecube and games to pay for the Wii. I regret selling the controller and memory card now, since Baten Kaitos Origin dropped in pricer.

    Pretty much I've been playing the Prince of Persia games, and some of my other Gamecube games. Now, it is next to impossible to get rid of the actual console.

    I have had this exact sentiment. Gamecubegames still look good and play well. And the sheer value of purchasing an gamecube game for a fraction of the cost is awsome. I have reciently purchased:

    Midway Arcade Classics 3 (the racing series Sanfrancisco Rush FTMFW.)
    Bond Nightfire
    DDR Mario Mix
    Need For Speed Underground

    I am very appretciative of Nintendo for including GC emulation in the Wii.

    My wife and I love playing a lot of the various Mario games together. Fortunately, I didn't sell a single GC game when I sold the system so I've still got a pretty large library of GC games to choose from. Heck, I've got games I've yet to even play too.

    Some of our favorites though are:
    Donkey Konga 2
    Donkey Kong Jungle Beat
    Mario Kart Double Dash!!
    Mario Party 7 (microphone "gimmick" controller is neat)
    Super Mario Baseball

    and one of my personal favs Eternal Darkness!
