Because I don't own a Wii, and I still use it daily.

A combination of the Gameboy player, nostalgia, and not tossing away tech that still works.

I'm in the UK some of my gamecube games are from the US. I have a Freeloader disc that lets me play any game from any region on my GC but it won't work with the Wii's GC backwards compatibility.

I passed it on to my niece who plays it for Super Mario Sunshine and some Dora the Explorer game.

Yep, because the wii's backward compatability is bad. The GameCube is a simple on button press. With the wii I have to find a wiimote with battery charge left, if none i have to find some batteries, then have to wait for it to sync, find my cursor on screen, select games, wait for it to do its little spin, and then select the gamecube game. It's incredibly tedious. And then theres the times when you forgot to hold down a button in melee for 60hz mode. Repeat all over again.

This could have been entirely avoided if they just allowed a setting that runs discs as soon as they are put in tray or when the system is turned on. Or even by allowing you to control the wii menu via the GameCube controller.

To remind myself that the Gamecube has a much nicer looking UI.

GameFAQS users are far too sensitive.
