Game ratings graph

I recently [October, 2004] bought a Nintendo GameCube. I’m sure it will rock, but I don’t really have many games or accessories for it yet. Here’s what I own so far, in inverse chronological order:

Games:

  1. Mario Kart: Double Dash!! — The most fun you and a bunch of people will ever have! [6/6]
  2. Resident Evil – 4 — Action-packed, but deviates too much from the puzzle-heavy forte of its brethren [5/6]
  3. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes — Though the story had little to do with metroids, it felt just like the original, only better [6/6]
  4. Prince of Persia: Warrior Within — They took all that was good about the original, and threw it out the window [1/6]
  5. Animal Crossing
  6. Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
  7. Viewtiful Joe – 2 — More of the exact same goodness, but too short and tends to be repetitive [4/6]
  8. Super Monkey Ball – 2 — Mostly pick-up-and-play fun, but cheesy and simplistic gameplay [3/6]
  9. Resident Evil Zero — Subtle tweaks make it better than the original [5/6]
  10. Need for Speed Underground — An occasionally interesting game that’s a little too ghetto, and a little too aliased [2/6]
  11. Viewtiful Joe — Beautiful, stylish and slick old school fun, but can be very challenging [5/6]
  12. Pikmin
  13. Prince of Persia: Sands of Time — Short and easy, but insanely fun with an engrossing story [5/6]
  14. Luigi’s Mansion — I am still in shock that this is a first-party Nintendo game [1/6]
  15. Resident Evil — Frighteningly gorgeous, intelligently fabricated, with some awkward control issues [4/6]
  16. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker — Beyond awesome, absolutely loved and worshipped [6/6]
  17. Super Mario Sunshine — Pleasant at a few points, but in general extremely tedious [2/6]
  18. Metroid Prime — Diverse, vast, beautiful and immersive [6/6]

Accessories:

  1. Nintendo Memory Card 59
  2. GameCube WaveBird Wireless Controller — Platinum
  3. Nintendo Memory Card 1019

If you know of other stuff to add to improve my now-sorry list, I’d love to hear about it. That way you can be the zealot you always wanted to for your favourite games, and I can reduce the amount of research I need to do before buying a new game. It’s a win-win situation!

Current open suggestions:

(Thanks!)

  1. Super Monkey Ball – 1
  2. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
  3. Super Smash Bros. Melee
  4. Pikmin – 2
  5. Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem
  6. Mario Power Tennis
  7. Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
  8. Freedom Fighters
