Also silly kid as I saw Metroid Prime as a FPS like Halo etc then played, didn't like it.

Tried again a few years ago, couldn't get on with the aiming. Would love a remaster on Switch to try again.

Yep, I gave it a shot and could only get to 20 games I played and liked, and that included two Mario Parties. Embarrassed The DS was I think the first machine where I could do a proper bunch of 30 gooduns.

I think I would struggle with DS but would like to give it a bash, even a Top 20 or so.

I love the GameCube, so was well keen to do mine

Another interesting list. You reminded me of Beyond Good & Evil - I really should finish it. It definitely looks and feels like a Gamecube game too. I'm not a big horror guy so Eternal Darkness and Resident Evil 1/0 were never making my list, but is Eternal Darkness actually a good game if you ignore the tricks and gimmicks it pulls? I recall it being fairly ordinary combat-wise and borderline confusing story-wise.

What I noticed from the lists so far is that Gamecube had the best artwork this generation. You love to see it.

I do not think I'd be able to make it to a top 30. Top 20 maybe?

Yeah, I struggled and after doing a lot of ranking of multi-format titles this generation, it got me up to 30.

This is mine:

The gimmicks etc are part of the game though and makes it great.

Another pretty varied list.

Viewtiful Joe 2 not 1? I never played the sequel but I rarely hear it mentioned.
I liked Beach Spikers at the time but pretty sure I traded it in soon after, as there wasn't much game there outside of multiplayer. How come it made your list?
NBA Street is such a great series. I never played 3 - was it better than 2 or similar enough?
Day of Reckoning 2 is a game I was always envious of, looking back. I think it was a later release, 2005 maybe? How does it stack up compared to the PS2 games?
NHL Hitz is a proper left-field choice, but now I'm curious. Pretty sure you reviewed it on here - I'll fire up an emulator and see what's what. Was this one you played at the time or retrospectively?
Where would you put Super Monkey Ball 2, or was it too similar to feature?

I’ve just got better memories of Viewtiful Joe 2, I thought it was just that little bit better. They’re both really good though.

Likewise, I’ve got lots of really fun memories with Beach Spikers. There’s not much game there outside of the multiplayer right enough, but it’s really well put together. I remember it being discounted most of the time as well, always on clearance in Currys or always in Gamestation’s ‘4 for £20’ deal. It’s second-hand price these days is more than what it usually cost back then.

NBA Street Vol. 2 and V3 are similar enough, but I remember V3 had a better Career mode. They revamped the tricks system for V3 too, making it smoother with the GameCube’s C-stick.

I don’t think Day of Reckoning 2 is as good as Shut Your Mouth, Here Comes The Pain or SD! Vs. Raw 2006, but it’s its own thing. It’s got different mechanics, different presentation, a different feel too. I think it strikes a really good balance between arcade-ey-ness and simulation. It’s a great alternative to the wrestling games you’d know better.

I played NHL Hitz to death at the time and retrospectively! It was one of the first GameCube games I got. It was one of rare times where I rented a game for the weekend, and I enjoyed it so much that I bought it right away. The nu-metal soundtrack has aged as much as the teams’ rosters, but definitely see what’s what – I’m confident you’ll really like it.

I’d put Super Monkey Ball 2 quite far off of my Top 30. There’s times when it’s just as good as the first game, but more often than not the maze design isn’t skilful, it’s based too much on luck for my liking.

From the other lists that have been posted, there’s nothing I’d majorly disagree with or anything. I’ve been meaning to play Twin Snakes and Paper Matio for years, but I’m always convinced that a modern-day remake won’t be far away. That was my logic with the Prince of Persia game too, though the remake sounds like it’s in development hell. I wish I liked PN 03, Billy Hatcher and Def Jam: Fight for NY as much as most folk seem to.
