is there a bigger historical revisionism than the gamecube?
people now see it as nintendo's best console, the peak of gaming and how it shaped the landscape of video games forever
when in reality it was a massive flop and the only influence it had was starting nintendo's obsession with retarded gimmicks

      Are you implying the Switch, Wii U, or Wii even remotely had a library of games as good as the Gamecube? It literally was their last good console and no one bought it oddly enough just like the Dreamcast which was Sega's best but also no one fucking bought it. I'd mention the Vita but I don't think I can win that argument even though I am passionate about that little handheld

        The NES/FC/FDS was the best console up to that point/in its time, but it set the new standard. Every subsequent console of note met or exceeded its library in terms of value. It's only a slightly larger software catalog than the SNES and has far more worthless shovelware. A lot of the software from the first ~3 years is either so insanely simplistic that it's only interesting as a historical footnote (most of the Nintendo no-brand sports games) or outright bad arcade ports.

                Not really. Generally speaking, people of the respective generations do tend to cluster together when it comes to cultural attitudes, ideas, political views etc. There will always be some outliers but the recent millennial vs "zoomer" culture clash highlights this in a way that will be definitively preserved thanks to the internet.

              SOVL
              I don't need to go over every game. The point is that it was the period when Nintendo was figuring out how to transition most of their IPs to 3D; however, they didn't have a template for IPs outside of Mario, Zelda, and Mario Kart, which had previously made the transition to 3D on the more limited N64. So they ended up doing things that you wouldn't see Nintendo do again until the Switch, the first home console in a while without a gimmick. Even Sunshine was different from 64, in the sense that it presented its levels as contiguous parts of a thematically consistent world. The Gamecube was the biggest jump most of Nintendo's series ever had to make.
              The best example of this is probably Star Fox, because it failed to make the transition to 3D - twice. Adventures and Assault both show the risks of what Nintendo was doing at the time through their flaws.

              The Gamecube was weird because Nintendo was willing to do weird shit like Luigi's Mansion, Pikmin or Chibi-Robo, or bring franchises into 3D that didn't get a chance to on the N64, like Metroid, and basically only Metroid, and some games were pretty great like Melee or F-Zero but their tentpole output was really half-baked.
              >Sunshine was a sequel that elicited "yeah it's Mario I guess" from critics, a far cry from 64 and later Galaxy's enormous acclaim
              >Double Dash was literally just "lmao two dudes on a car" and later, better Mario Karts would just streamline that later innovation by letting you hold multiple items
              >Wind Waker sent Nintendo as a whole into damage control from its reveal at Space World
              >as an inverse to Metroid Prime, Fire Emblem was fucking clunky and hideous despite being an SRPG that has less to worry about compared to an adventure FPS
              >Nintendo didn't even know what the fuck it wanted out of some of its other franchises, Star Fox became an action adventure with Adventures and then tried going back to basics with Assault, Donkey Kong played the bongos, Nintendo Wars became a quasi third-person shooter RTS which was kinda neat I'll admit
              >Animal Crossing came out west though which was great

              On the flip side, Iwata was keen to recultivate third party relationships after the N64. JRPGs came back to Nintendo platforms, as well as third party developers in general. It was a big deal when Square-Enix announced Final Fantasy ports and new projects for GCN/GBA. Nintendo didn't forsee the rise of shooters in spite of being host to the most popular shooters of 5th gen, but it still got stuff like MoH, the then-new Call of Duty, EA's James Bond joints, and Timesplitters, and I'll admit my own personal fondness for Geist's single player.

              When it comes to actual Nintendo franchises, Gamecubefags are the apotheosis of rose-colored glasses to an obnoxious extent, but there was a lot of great stuff outside of the usual Mario/Zelda stuff.

          Most of those games are just okay, and PS2's number of good games demolishes that list. In fact, you just posted a standard list of what a GC owner's only options were. They're across a bunch of different genres as well, so if someone had a preference for that style of game they had nothing else.

          WW and TP are also shit by the way, and like Sunshine are only propped up by infants who owned a GC as their first console.

          >BOTW takes a steaming shit on WW, TP and SS. Despite all its flaws, it's the first good Zelda since Majora's Mask.
          And... opinion discarded.

          Your opinion is even more worthless then. Aonuma's cancerous game design became extremely apparently in this era. The most railroaded and handholding Zelda games, they're piss easy, terrible pacing, zero fun side content or upgrades, too many cutscenes, shit dungeons (other than TP), fetch quests, etc.

          They're dogshit, and BOTW brought Zelda back to being relevant, despite its huge issues like shit combat, copy pasted dungeons, and nonsensical garbage like it's implementation of weapon durability. Despite those flaws it is an infinitely better game than those GC and Wii turds, which killed Zelda.

    It has a solid library if you're experiencing it all for the first time now, but when the system was new the games were drip-fed over the course of years, and there were so few genuinely high quality games that almost everyone who had a GameCube had basically the same library of games

          Switch, like the Wii, like the PS2, had thousands of mid to shovelware games, and only a small handful of games that most people actually wanted. Fucking, the Switch is noticeably abysmal since its mostly just a port/remake machine. What truly great game was made exclusively for the Switch... Mario Odyssey? And?...

          Half its top tier roster of Must Have games are Wii U ports, and nobody is calling that console a must own.

    The GameCube was a cool piece of hardware that was sadly overshadowed by the PS2 and had to compete with the Xbox. Overall, a better library than the N64. The Wii is basically an overclocked GameCube with better memory management . The original models have built-in GameCube controller ports. The Wii-U's PPC CPU has some sort of 'Gamecube' compatibility mode that can be unlocked via modding. It's basically there because the Wii-U Has a Wii BC mode.

      >It's basically there because the Wii-U Has a Wii BC mode.
      It's actually there because the gamecube backwards compatibility was supposed to be a feature but nintendo cut it because the price of a drive mechanism that could accept gamecube mini-dvds and normal ones would rise the cost of the console by 5$. I'm not kidding that's literally it. They cut it to save money.

        I mean that's nothing unusual for Nintendo. Fact is Nintendo has literally NEVER gone two console generations in a row using the same medium as the media device, meaning that none of these consoles had compatible hardware. I mean the GBA's cartridge slot could accept GB/C cartridges but that was a handheld and it was also the one time. For the rest they needed an entire separate port. For the N64 and the GBC, it was to combat piracy, but I think the only reason they chose flash storage for the Switch despite it being way more expensive than disks was primarily because they didn't want to shove an entire CD port onto their console/handheld hybrid.

            Sure but none of the third parties want to use the SD cards because they're too expensive. Even when they do use them, it's always the cheapest possible option forcing you to download the rest of the game onto your Switch anyway, rendering the entire idea of owning the physical game pointless.

    The GC library is good, but the only reason people think it's meaningfully better than SNES or WiiU+Switch is because they grew up with one. It had a wider breadth of titles worth playing than N64 and Wii, so it comes off better in retrospect despite many of those titles being middling.

    Until the XBONE I don't think you can call any major console "bad." They all had at least enough games made specifically for them to justify the price tag. You have to get down into shit like the Jaguar before you find consoles without enough to back up the asking price.

      The "Why did you do this" stuff was all a result of not actually planning anything. Adventures was retooled late in dev to be Star Fox and Assault was an arcade game hastily retooled as a console game. The DK stuff was just applying the brand to mediocre games that otherwise wouldn't sell. Battalion Wars was only given that branding because Advance Wars did well internationally, it wasn't designed as a Wars spinoff from the jump.
