The gamecube is appreciated because it was a mostly core focused console with a limited library focused on quality over quantity, with a small userbase compared to it's comptetiors at the time, but they could appreciate the amount of work that went into most of it's games, and thus ended up loving the system.
>>266620418 Quite a lot, actually. >Interesting design >More powerful than the PS2 but less so than the Xbox, so games usually ran pretty well >Controller is still used and loved by millions to this day >Gave us some of the best games of our time as opposed to a few diamonds in a sea of shovelware
It was a much better console than people give it credit for.
Nintendo allowed SGI and ArtX's design to stand as-is, and it was a face melting powerhouse because of it.. With the N64, Nintendo cut down on some very expensive exotic ram in order to make the system more profitable and gimped performance.
in my opinion this was one of the most expected and loved games from after 2000 I'm no torneyfag nor anything like that, but people still talk and love this game today, and more than half of my friends talk about this video fondly
>>266621831 >>266622449 not him, but I serioosly dont see whats so good about the controller. The c stick is small and doesnt have good grip. only on z button. hard plastic face buttons small as fuck d-pad
the only thing it got going for it were the triggers.
>>266620418 Solid construction Most powerful system of the gen but also arguably the easiest to dev for Very good price Four player games Lots of budget titles with local co-op being the selling point Titles that had amazing replay value Had multiple unique games for nearly every genre Lots of gems from small companies
I still believe that forcing publishers to buy their cds, and releasing WW instead of TP and foolishly letting rare go and not buying sega when they had the chance pretty much destroyed the system and weakened their ability to stand alone in the future.
>be years ago >buy black controller >arrives >works very good >little bro plays with it for a week >all fucked up >still works >get little mad, take the controller and talk to him while holding it >throws me a pillow, controller falls to the ground >still works >fuck >plug into gamecube port >still working >be 6 years since then >still working >just needed to change the analogs because rubber worn out
>>266623463 >foolishly letting rare go Rare was a shadow of its former self and Nintendo put it out of its misery. >and not buying sega when they had the chance Sega and Nintendo have been butt buddies since like 2001. Why would Nintendo buy a whole company when they were already getting most of their decent games anyway?
>>266625216 A winning combo of optimized hardware and software. The best dynamic effects are usually done by Japanese devs. For years Capcom had the best fire effects while most other attempts were crap.
>Brillant technical design thanks to ArtX >Nintendo being a bit more lax in terms of what kind of content they allowed on their system >decent controller for the time (perfect for smash though) >good games
What went wrong: >minidvds >no built in modem (nintendo STILL can't get online right after all these years) >would have been a lot more succesful and things would have been great for nintendo in that period had it not have to compete with the absolute juggernaut that the ps2 was
>>266620418 The System have the best design ever created for a console and it's build like a tank. The controller doesn't felt low-tier generic quality like ps2 or xbox. >Dat quality titles everywhere. >Dat superior Resident Evil series >Dat superior rendering over ps2 >Dat superior offline multiplayer games. >Dat price (100$ in 2004)
