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.

Quite a lot, actually.
>Interesting design

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

>>266622418

that's, like, your opinion, man

it's responsive as fuck, ergonomic as fuck, triggers are pure orgasm, button placement is very good and it feels right

probably you don't like it because it's too much videogamaey

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.

are you retarded? every iteration of ps controllers has been awful

and way better than anything Nintendo put out
>>
>>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.

Those little compact cds made piracy a non issue for a very long time though, can you even hack or mod a gamecube?

Yup.
It's very possible to hack a GC.
You just have to remove the case and put a regular sized cd on the spindle.

Look at pikmin 2's water and even pikmin 1's water.
Why did the water on the gamecube always look so amazing?

Powerful, compact, charismatic, durable, Resident Evil 4, Nintendo first partys, controller etc.

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?

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.

Very little.

They were extremely lucky that capcom chose to back them than gen so thoroughly.

I always liked Metroid Prime's interactive water. I think the Wii port took out that effect.

The Xbox was the most powerful of its gen, this is common knowledge. Just how old are you?

What is the dualshock2 or xboxhueg

Fuck outta here
>>
>>266620418
Everyone has the hardware covered.

Software that went right:
- Better 3rd party support than N64. EA and Ubisoft tended to support it with their multiplats.

- Actually had RPGs. (again, cf N64) Lead system for Tales of Symphonia

- Ignoring the obvious Nintendo franchies on the system, it also had Rogue Squadron 2/3, Eternal Darkness, and was the lead platform for RE:4.
>>
>>266627673
PS1 had four shoulder buttons in 1995, dickwart
>>
>>266628452

It was Mikami's decision fueled by his disdain for Sony. Capcom ported to PS2 what was left of the "Capcom 5" and would have done the same for REmake and RE0 if they could get away with it.
>>
Nothing went right. It was a failure and Nintendo made the Wii so they wouldn't repeat the failure of the Gamecube.
>>
>>266628735
No, no it wasn't. That was just hype to justify it being little more then a pc in a huge box.

Okay, if you used super cooling and over clocked the fuck out of it you would get performance that exceeds what the gc can do.

But practically...no. The GC was far more powerful then the original xbox. The xbox ximply had more media options, storage and hype.

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)
