I didn't have a Gamecube growing up so I don't know some of the more hidden gems of this console. The only hidden gem I know of is Chibi-Robo.

What are some good games for Gamecube that aren't talked about as much as they should be?

007 Nightfire was better than Goldeneye on the N64 and I'll fight anyone who disagrees.

Return of the King on the GameCube is the game that inspired my GameFAQs username.

Enter the Matrix was a glitch fest but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

In terms of the core missions, I can see that; Agent Under Fire and especially Everything or Nothing have great missions.

Baten Kaitos, both games.
The second is better, but the first is still really good, and has my favorite area of either game.
If you ever plan to play both, definitely play the original (Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean) first, so the prequel is more meaningful.

:)

The 2nd game is just much more polished overall, whether in terms of combat, voice acting, inventory/deck management, etc... As far as plot, the first game has one of the greatest moments in any video game, ever. But the 2nd game's plot is more consistently strong throughout.
I can understand why someone would prefer the first game, though.

What I meant was "I didn't give a shit about Faramir from LotR until I played that game, in which he was a great end game bonus character and thus that inspired me to name this account after him".

I don't have any care for the name now.

NASCAR Thunder 2003
Now, dont get me wrong. Yes, its a NASCAR game where you go left, left, left and left again, but it does have some a lot of different mode. Theres Season Mode, Career Mode, Thunder Challenge (basically Time Attack to complete a lap in under a certain time) and Lightning Challenges (moments from 1999, 2000 and 2001 seasons are recreated and you either have to complete them just as the real drivers did, or change history, such as turning defeat into victory).

Twin Snakes is awesome as fuck. Yeah, it makes some of the bosses too easy(especially Ocelot), but other than that, it's amazing. Some people shit on the over the top cutscenes, but Kojima kept rejecting tamer cutscenes and wanted the super over the top ones. He also said that if he would've made the original cutscenes like that if he was able to.

I think Phantasy Star Online would count, given you can still play the game online through private servers.
Specifically Sylverant and Schthack

Killer 7 is one of my favorites. A remaster of it came out last year, though it's only on PC.

Also these...
Star Fox Assault - Not the best in the series but it was pretty solid and had great multiplayer.

Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction - Easily one of the best superhero games... ever

Lost Kingdoms - Card-based action RPG made by From Software.

Viewtiful Joe 1 and 2 - The first one more so but the second one is pretty solid.

Schthack is kind of dead these days from what I've heard. Though it's been awhile since I've checked.

Either way, getting PSO on the gamecube connected is a real pain since you need a network adapter and those aren't cheap at all.

It's still totally playable offline though and it has split screen co-op, so it's not a bad way to play it.

I completely forgot about Lost Kingdoms. The first one is alright, but the second one is better in every way.

Compared to other Tales games? It's the only Tales game I've played, but compared to other RPGs, I found it the opposite. The plot was mediocre at best and the lead characters (Lloyd, Collette, Raine, and Genis) were insufferable, and the only things making the game enjoyable were the active combat system and the fun/interesting supporting characters.

yeah it was kind of dark but it kept you playing and there were a lot of cool area's and character designs
that doesn't mean the writing or characters themselves are great just the adventure itself
but the combat system was definitely just "attack juggle, cast magic/technique, repeat"
tales of hearts R at least has a block button
i'm sure the other ones are much more in depth
