    ### The Gamecube is a gem. It not only has the lowest price of the three systems, but a great feeling controller! The actual power of the Gamecube is much more than PS2 and less (in some areas) than the Xbox. The Gamecube is capable of making your jaw d...rop with gorgeous graphics! Not that any of that is really a concern, if the fun factor of a game is lacking than good graphics are nothing more than eye candy. Gamecube has plenty of both! Great graphics and FUN! Nintendo makes simply the best, most fun, creative games around! They have been since the start. Great Gamecube exclusive games include: Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Mario Sunshine, Legend of Zelda: Windwaker, Pikmin, Pikmin 2, Eternal Darkness, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Animal Crossing, Paper Mario: The Thousand-year Door, Mario Golf, Mario Tennis and the list goes on. Another key advantage of the Gamecube is in the build quality of Nintendo products. The Gamecube is a well built cute yet powerful little cube. The controller is put together well and the feel is simply the best. The Gamecube also supports progressive scan for an even better picture on your TV, and Dolby Pro-Logic II surround sound for an awesome experience. You can also connect your Gameboy Advance or SP to the system for added features in select games. Online gaming is made available through either a broadband modem or dial-up. Let me address something that often floats from people's lips. The Gamecube is NOT geared toward kids. It is geared for everybody and anybody who loves games. Yes, that means kids, teens, adults and everyone in the middle will love it. Don't let bright colors and cute characters mislead you, these are easy to pick up but challenging games. (i.e. Super Mario Sunshine) The rating system is for informing on game content, not the challenge. A "M" or mature rated game does not mean its challenging or even good, just that it shows things much like a "R" rated movie. If there is a downside to the Gamecube it is in the third-party support (i.e. Konami, Midway, etc.) But the classic simply amazing Nintendo exclusive games more than make up for that! To conclude, if you are a gamer who enjoys challenging creative games the Gamecube should be at the top of your MUST-HAVE list. I recommend it. Read more Less
