GameCube System - (GameStop Refurbished)
Best Console Ever!!!!
A simply great console even compared to xbox 360 psp 3 etc... I got mine when I was 5. I still play it all the time. It has amazing games and great graphics for when I came out. It is at such a low cost you are crazy not to buy. I have a Xbox 360 and a Wii but the Gamecube is still my favorite. It is a great thing to have and very fun to play with for any age. It can't be beat....

Great System for its Day
The gamecube is a marvelous system if you have a tight budget and dont care if games don't come out for it anymore. I got this as a 5 year old and this was my first game system. Now, I play fifa 07, nhl 06, nba 06, and madden 07&05. So, if you want a great system for cheap, buy this!!!!!!! :)
Cool console. plays resident evil and all kinds
I had no problems with this console. it is worth 30 bucks. I play all kinds of games like resident evil 0,3 and 4 . you can play all kinds of games on this console.
I always love playing games on this system. It's graphics are great. Its also really portable which is great for trips.
Greatest Nintendo invention ever!
This is the greatest system ever made. Even with the newer systems, Gamecube leaves them in the dust. I am honestly surprised that Nintendo didn't just upgrade the Gamecube, the Wii doesn't count as an upgrade even though it's Gamecube compatible. Gamecube controllers were designed amazingly, they fit the hand decently and the button layout was genius. The gaming itself is great, Super Smash Bros. Melee is the single greatest game I have ever played, Brawl wasn't nearly as fun. I have contemplated many times just getting this and playing it even though I have an XBox 360 and PS3, the only thing keeping me back is that I like to play online. I would beat every game I got for this and then get bored, and get another, until I had gone through every available Gamecube game. That is how amazing this is. All of my money would be spent towards Gamecube, whether on more controllers, memory cards, or the games, I would go broke buying for this system. I definitely think Nintendo should bring Gamecube back. Get this system, not a waste of money at all, only $30, less than a game for PS3 or XBox 360.
Better than the Wii
I had one of these till the laser went on it. I loved it and used it all the time.The games are great and graphic's are good it also it competitive with the other systems game wise compared to the wii.I also have a wii and don't like it only reason I'll keep it is for the downloadability to get all the old system games on it otherwise you can keep it.I also don't like all the virtual games on wii like wii fit,biggest loser,dance revolution ect.This is where the gamecube is way better plus i love the coltroller the wii motion you can have.The games are more diverse something for everyone instead of a bunch of kiddie games like on wii. I play gamecube games on my wii and have about 20 compared to only 8 on the wii plus the system can be bought for 25 buck a good value for a great system you also can get the gameboy player to play gameboy games on gamecube so it is a great value even for an old system it is still great one of the best Nintendo ever made (besides N64) bottom line go buy one.
This is my favorite gaming system, even with all the newer systems like the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 out. This system has games that may not be considered the best because of the graphics or because they are old, but that does not matter. What matters is the gameplay, and how fun you have playing the game. In fact, this system's graphics are actually pretty good, and the system was discontinued in 2007, so it's not that old, either. This system has games that are a lot better than other system's games. Some great Gamecube games include Sonic 2 Adventure: Battle, Mario Kart Double Dash, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Sonic Adventure DX Director's Cut, and much more. The system you get may be broken or be scratched up, but that's no reason to write a bad review about this system, because you could simply either return it, or trade it in for one that does work.
Gamecube beats the wii
I had a gamecube about 7 yrs. ago and loved it then sold it as i didn't have time to play it anymore. I got a wii last fall during christmas season.
I like it but the wii motion wii mote killed it for me and spending money for batteries for the wii mote wireless controller. Like using the motion controller for tiger woods no if i wanted to play virtual sports i'd go play golf. I like a controller period.Virtual gaming sucks and I hate it.I got the cube again to play these good games on it as well as my wii without using the wii mote thank god. I also think the graphic's are still good and some are better than on wii on certain games ect. plus the game library is excellent and the fact they have more mature or adult games than wii does.Like one of my favorites dead to rights as well as the call of duty and metal of honor series. Plus now you can get a gamecube for 20.00 bucks can't beat that. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a good videogame system on a budget or a kids first game system.
The Biggest Hidden Gem in Video Game History!
Next to the Sega Dreamcast, the Gamecube is one of the most un-appreciated systems ever manufactured. This is unfortunate, as this console is one of the best, easily beating the competition. The Gamecube's design is very aesthetically pleasing, and with that design comes functionality also! In my time owning a cube (quite a while), I've never had any problems with it. If I could only say that about my Ps2, and Ps3. Anyway, the gamecube controller is one of the best out there, it's extremely comfortable and responds very nicely. The game selection on the Gamecube does not fail to disappoint, as there are several styles of games. You will always be able to find something you like on this system, especially the first-party Nintendo titles. I've done quite a bit of video gaming in my time, which has included everything from the NES, all the way up to the Ps3, and among all of those, the Gamecube is a must have. This system is one that every gamer should have in their collection.
