As far as video gaming systems go, i've always been inclined towards the Nintendo systems. I was thinking of picking up a Game Cube, but I'm a little undecided. Is it worth it? Is it a good system? I havn't read too much about it, are the games any good? What do you guys think?

Don't ask us that. Seriously. Go down to Best Buy or EB, look at all the systems and games, play all the games you can on each system, and ask for a list of upcoming games for each system at EB. If you still can't decide, then go rent the system you're leaning towards at Blockbuster. Remember though, a system is only as good as its games, and each of the major systems out now has its merits and disadvantages, but each will have lots of good games for it.

That being said, the Gamecube is an excellent purchase. Here's a list I knocked out in an earlier thread of GC advantages:

It's portable
Shigeru Miyamoto works for Nintendo, and he's a fucking genius
New Mario game
New Zelda game
New Metroid game
New Starfox game
New Perfect Dark Game
AKI is developing a GC wrestling game
Miyamoto
It's $100 cheaper than either the X-Box or PS2
It's built like a fucking tank
The controller LOOKS silly (looks, Guru), but it actually fits perfectly in your hands, and the button layout is extremely logical
Load times are practically nonexistent
If you're too much of a man to have a purple game system, it comes in black
It's about half the size and weight of either of the other two systems
The game discs themselves are small and cute
Miyamoto
Nintendo intends to fully support this console for at least 5 years (Sony is looking to have the PS3 out in about 2 years)
Graphics are maybe a hair under the X-Box's, and way above PS2's
Sega is putting out an assload of GC-exclusives
Resident Evil is now GC-exclusive
Game Boy Advance links up to Gamecube as a controller (Remember VMU playcalling in NFL 2k2 for the Dreamcast?) or for other features (Chaos in Sonic, other shit...)


Wow, that's long. But really, don't listen to me too much, I am extremely biased. You've gotta make your own decision. But remember, if you buy a system and end up hating the games, then you just dropped 2 or 3 bills for a paperweight.

That's. . .wow, that's lame. I almost wish they'd gone with the "resurrected Jason Todd" angle instead of having it be another red herring.
