Soul Caliber II is a great game, and the best version is on Gamecube for one reason only: Link. He is the best fighter there. Other good games are Super Smash Brothers Melee (Link is in that one too), and Zelda The Wind Waker. All these games are on Gamecube, even though it is last on the most next-gen consoles sold in the U.S. (Damn you, Microsoft and Sony, with your GTA and Halo!!!)

For the last time, no means yes.

Bit unfair to criticise Sony, just because so many people love the wonderful GTA games.

GameCube is deliberately targeted at those players who like brightly coloured cutsey games, wheras Sony go for the older gamers.

Can't blame Sony for Nintendo's marketing strategy.

Cufflink, I agree that Gamecube targets the younger audience more than Sony, but if you ever played Eternal Darkness, you wouldn't think Gamecube games are so cutesy. And in Wind Waker, Link finishes of Ganon by shoving his sword into Ganon's skull. Doesn't sound cutesy to me. (by the way, I also have PS2, but I have very few games.)

Oh, I wasn't having a go at GameCube owners, Jasu.

GameCube does have adult games (like the Resi titles).  It's just that the company let you loyal Nintendo gamers down, by giving the impression to the world in general that their games are cute.

Both Super-Monkeyball games are on GC. They may be cute, but I think they are impossible to beat. If anyone here has beat either one, then you are my hero.

Cufflink, I agree. Nintendo has been givig the impression that a good portion of its games are cute. This is why some game developers are cancelling games on Gamecube, like the Timesplitters series, because of Nintendo's ways. I think that Nintendo should focus a little bit more on adult games because they are the ones buying the games. And that new game, Killer 7, sounds like a title that should be very interesting for adult gamers. And the Super Monkey Ball series has some of the most hardest games I have ever played. I get better runs by just winging it and trying to send it down as fast as I can.

For the last time, no means yes.

I don't think it's just cause its targeted towards kids. The Snes was on the top of the heap, it went pretty much unchallenged. The N64 was smothered to death by sony, mostly 'cause of the choice of going with cartridges instead of cd's. (it also lost nintendo square) They were being cautious, because other companies had used cds and failed horribly. Cause the n64 did so badly many companies have decided to stay away from gamecube.

The 'cube is really targeted only to kids, just a little more than sony or microsoft.

Ps: I've got no probs with sony, I really want a PS2 for christmas. (still want to play Kingdom Hearts). Sorry but I really don't care for microsoft; not excited about any of the games.

Some of the best games are "kiddie" games. Like: Super Mario RPG (my fav),
Wind Waker, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Ocarina of Time.
