Excited? What did you like most from the show?

New Fire Emblem is always cool even if the protag looks dumb as hell. Zelda of course. Lots of little stuff throughout that I can’t recall at the moment, honestly a pretty good Direct I thought.

Is this community dead? I wanted to take part of a community that is all about The Legend of Zelda :cry:

There are definitely some Nintendo fans here, I am a Nintendo fan but most of my focus is on PS....

But I started out on a NES and my favorite console was Gamecube.

It was bulletproof, had great games, such high quality and I loved the form-factor, sense of build quality and material, and the controller was unique and comfortable. So underrated.
I bought it for games like Resident Evil remake, Super smash bros melee, the legend of Zelda wind waker, Metroid Prime, Pikmin, Luigi's mansion and for many more classics.

Yeah, I got it for Zelda too but then my friend got me into Resident Evil and I got all of the re-releases on there along with RE4 and I love MGS so I got Twin Snakes.

But It also became my console of choice for games like Soul Calibur and Rogue Squadron etc.

....and of course Smash Bros.

Yes... I used to play it with my bro too.

I also used to play Jedi Outcast or Academy at my friends house (He had a GC too) and it was hilarious.... in the Death Star jumping up and force pushing each other into the abyss! lol

So much fun!

I didn't have them either...until I got Academy on PC in the last few years...

But my friend was an only child and seemed to get every game...ever. lol
Sadly where I live Gamecube's games were difficult to find, since a system like PS2 had more fanbase therefore games were more easly available on the store shelves.

Yeah, it was the same here... and GC slowly shrank in every shop / store. I didn't even buy much online back then so the options were limited.
