The GameCube is AWFUL. It has outright bad, janky first-party games (Sunshine), overhyped third-party games like the repetitive garbage that is Viewtiful Joe, has a shitty, small, cramped controller that actually hurts me to use for long, and its few good games are mostly on the superior OG Xbox and the PS2.
From that generation, it's the OG Xbox that deserved more sales success, as it is an all-time great console.
The GameCube has DK Jungle Beat, Melee, an okay Mario Kart, and a bunch of crap on it. It suuuuuuucks real bad. I genuinely hate that thing. What an awful machine. It turned me off Nintendo for awhile, it was so bad. Coming off their best console ever, the N64, it came as quite a shock!
That Isaiah Whitlock GIF is how I felt after I spent forty bucks to buy Viewtiful Joe on the advice of someone whom I should have know better than to trust about good games.
I am absolutely right about the GameCube, and while objectively, I understand that we are all different and have different experiences, subjectively, you GameCube fans baffle the fuck out of me. I am still trying to figure out if the praise for Eternal Darkness is just a subsection of the internet trolling unsuspecting people who want to actually discuss good video games.
Look, when Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles is a top five game on your console, something went horribly, horribly wrong.
Jungle Beat is fucking brilliant, though, so I guess at least the GameCube exists for that specific experience.
