Default GameCube owners: why?

Why do you play GameCube? I dont got one but Ive seen it at my peeps house and its all kiddie games

Wheres the GTA or the Devil May Cry or the SOCOM? Why do you buy a console that has only got games made for 5 year olds and plunk your money down

Because good gameplay is not limited to killing and violence. I can go from Madden to MGS to Zelda to Mario Kart and have fun playing them all. I guess some ppl don't understand that. It must be one of those closeminded attitudes or something. How bout instead of berating something that you don't play, don't own, and don't know anything about, you go out and do some of this so-called openmindedness you claim to have and give something a try before you dismiss it as being for 5 year olds. It's really pretty pathetic.

Oh, and what would Liberman and Gore think of you playing your "murder simulators" anyway

Mario Kart and Zelda (esp with the cartoon look) are for kids

When is Nintendo gonna realise they have to make games for all people, thats where the money is

Making kiddie game after kiddie game is not gonna help there P.R. either

I dont get why someone would take Gamecube when they can take PS2 that has DVD player and online play, and a library with SOCOM, GTA, Manhunt, Getaway, Madden Online, Gran-fucking-Turismo

I'm sorry to tell you this, but not everyone is alike, and like all the same games. I don't have a GC, but I would want to get one. And who really cares if mario kark and zelda have a so called 'cartoon' look. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean everyone else doesn't either...

I agree and have been saying for a long time that Nintendo needs to branch out as far as their games go. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy playing Nintendo games, hell they have put out some of the coolest games Ive ever played.

It looks like they have been making an attempt to add some more mature games but nothing drastic.

I guess you just have to see that Nintendo is geared more towards a younger crowd, that's the way its always been and probably the way it always will be.

I don't need a DVD player. I already own one. I'd much prefer to have a dedicated DVD machine, than something that plays games half-decent and DVD's half decent.

Online play? well, I've been doing that on a computer for years.

but if i really wanted to play on a videogame console with more than myself, i'd just invite some of my friends over. no matter what you tell me, nothing beats playing video games with a room full of people.

And games are a dime a dozen. each system has it's killer apps.

Games for all people? All the games you are listing are for adults, not for all people. The fact of the matter is, you don't have to have endless violence, lewd sexual references, or top of the line realistic graphics. Nintendo makes games that are fun for all to enjoy. They might look kiddie, but you get into them there is a depth and fun to them that is simple enough for kids, but just complex enough to give us adults trouble too. I guarantee that Zelda, Mario Kart, Mario Sunshine, any of those games, take a very talented player to beat, whether it is a kid or an adult. Also, if you want online play, get a top of the line PC, if you want to play DVD's get a DVD player, Gamecube is a video game console, nothing more, nothing less. You don't buy a refridgerator expecting it to have a dishwasher on it.

I must say Page is half right. Nintendo is loosing market big time because they concentrate solely on kiddie games. They must make a bigger variety. That why Microsoft and Soy are over Nintendo. I say nintendo should look for a few adult games to keep themselves on the market if not they'll trn into the next Sega.

And page you're4 an idiot. All the games you mentioned won't fit in a nintendo gamecude CD because they are on DVD format not on CD-ROM format. Read the facts before you speak you moron.

I heard differently. Sales have rocketed, but Sony and Microsoft are still selling more, and Sony by MUCH more than both. I'm a PS2 guy, but I was planning on getting a GameCube for Christmas before my mobile started playing up so I'm now getting a Nokia 3510i...and GTA III!

Still nintendo needs to grab a piece of the adult market. And making making more adult games might help out a bit. Nothing too radical like Sony and Microsoft but enough to stay competitive.

Gamecube has made some violent games,Dead to Rights,True Crime,Medal of Honor Frontline,etc.So please don't go saying they make games just for kids,the games are very fun.I own a Gamecube and I play it all the time.

And don't you go saying anything bad about Zelda or Mario....or I will be forced to verbally kick your ass in the Warzone.

None of those games were popular on gamecube. And by the way I will say aomething about zelda and mario. They simply lost the fun factor cause now they have a shit load of mario games and Zelda games hasn't prospered since zelda a Link o the past.

But Mario Party is fun to play, Or Smash Brothers. Watching Mario and Luigi beat the crap out of each other was always interesting.
