When the Nintendo GameCube released back in 2001, it struggled to find a passionate following. The console played host to critically-acclaimed games like Metroid Prime, Resident Evil 4, and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, but it couldn’t keep up with PS2 and Xbox. More than 20 years later, things have changed, and the system now enjoys a passionate following; Super Smash Bros. Melee has even assured that the system still gets regular use on the competitive circuit! Nintendo GameCube is currently trending on Twitter and many fans have used the opportunity to share their favorite games and memories of the system.
Unfortunately, a lot of the best GameCube games remain stranded on the console. Games like Resident Evil 4 and Super Mario Sunshine can be played on Nintendo Switch, but there’s a plethora of great games that have never been ported, including Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, and more. Hopefully, Nintendo will work to rectify that and get these games on Switch, but until then, fans will just have to keep the old console handy if they want to play.

Long past time for Eternal Darkness to come back!
GameCube is probably my all time fav console. That being said, it’s about time we got an Eternal Darkness remake

We never need an excuse to discuss greatness.
Yo what is with everyone and the Gamecube today?
I check Youtube and a bunch of creators are talking about it.
I check twitter and the first thing I see is a question about the thing. Did I miss another anniversary or something?

Both of those games have a lot of fans.
Anyways the GameCube is the best console because it has both Sonic Adventure 2 and Melee which as we all know are the two best games ever created
