If You Have A GameCube, Why Do You Still Have It?

Never mind throwing it away,I have 2 of them. Heck, I still have Resident Evil 4 still in it's original wrapper and 2 copies of Tales of Symphonia.

Quite possibly one of my favorite consoles of all times, despite all the grief it gets.

Although the PS2 had more gems on it, I can safely say I spend more time on the GC than any console [bar my Atari 2600 and SNES that I grew up with] to date.

They defo don't make them like they used to.

Sadly gaming has died a horrible death.

To be able to play GameCube, Wii and Wii U games, there were two options:

A) Keep Wii, Buy Wii U
B) Trade Wii for $30, buy GameCube from EB Games for $3, buy Wii U

I chose option B.

In fearful day, in raging night, with strong hearts full, our souls ignite! When all seems lost in the War of Light, look to the stars, for hope burns bright!

it starts way way faster then the wii its more convient to boot with out the wii mote it has the gameboy player it doesnt waste away my Wiis laser it doesnt require batteries to boot it doesnt corrupt my memory cards like the wii does (yes i have the 1028s or whatever they are). The real question is why would i ever ditch my cube.

Game boy player ftw
Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right

I keep mine because it is much faster to play a gamecube game on the gamecube as compared to the wii. With a gamecube I just hit play, but with a wii I have to click the game screen then click play after waiting for it to register.

My 10 year old nephew only likes to play Mario Kart when he's over.

Where's the "Because my Wii rejects the Action Replay" option?
This is where I sometimes put jokes, references and such.

Makes for a pretty nice door stop. Good thing Nintendo stuff are durable

Because I have Animal Crossing E+ and Harvest Moon: Magical Melody before it was going to come to the States. ACE+ was the best $70 ever :)
