For many gamers, the Nintendo GameCube is still their favorite. While the PS2 and XBox were better than the GameCube in many ways, the GameCube became known for having some of the best Nintendo games and the best multiplayer games ever made. There were a lot of parties where the GameCube was used, and the controls were broken as people tried to beat their friends at the game that was on their TVs.
But which games did well?
For a game to be on this list, it must have a lot of multiplayer parts. There will be no points for games like Metroid Prime 2 that just have multiplayer modes. Among friends, these are the games you’d play. Which are the best? What could you play today and still enjoy yourself?
On May 24, 2020, Brittany Fischer will make changes. Nintendo is still a popular game company. Recently, a lot of people have talked about the Nintendo Switch. This is mostly because of the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As you know, the first Animal Crossing game came out on the GameCube nearly 20 years ago. Here, we can see that many original GameCube games are just as good as they were back when they first came out. Like Animal Crossing, many popular games have become video game series, which means there are more games in the series. Take a look at these multiplayer games that you can still play today!
1. Super Monkey Ball
Super Monkey Ball is a game made by Sega. It’s a platform game that you can play with friends and family. This game was first released on the Dreamcast. It was then rereleased on the GameCube after Sega’s platform didn’t work out. In this video game, there are a lot of party games and mini-games that you can play with your friends.
This game was a big hit and even one of the best of the GameCube’s first games. Make sure to bring some friends and have some fun! Super Monkey Ball can be played by up to four people.
2. Pokémon Colosseum
Pokémon is still a popular animated series and a popular game series. When you play Pokemon Colosseum, you can become a trainer and fight against your friends. The newer Pokémon that fans know and love won’t be in this game, but it’s still a good way to see some of the old ones that people used to like.
3. Super Mario Strikers
Mario is, of course, one of the most popular video game franchises of all time. A lot of games have been made based on the Mario Party, Paper Mario, and other games in the Mario franchise There are a lot of people who like these games. Super Mario Strikers is no exception.
In this game, two teams of five people each try to score goals on the soccer field. If a player makes a lot of perfect shots and passes, they will be able to “superstrike,” which can earn them two points if they do it well enough.
4. Mario Superstar Baseball
Another game from the Mario series that is very popular is Mario Baseball. In this game, you can play against a friend after making your own all-star baseball team. They each have their own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to baseball.
As you can see, it wouldn’t be a Mario sports game if there were no extra abilities. Baseball fields with extra features are not the only things that make this game unique. Each of the main Mario characters has their own special abilities. When you play this game with a friend, don’t hit a home run!
5. Pac-Man Fever
This game was released in 2002, but some people didn’t like it. It’s still worth giving it another try. The characters move around a game board and compete in mini-games between rounds, like Mario Party.
They move in different ways. In Pac-Man Fever, instead of using dice to move forward, the number of steps a character takes depends on where they are in the mini-game. This is different from how Mario Party moves forward. All of the places where the characters land have different effects, like making or taking away money or starting a raffle. People can’t say you won this game because you rolled a lucky die.
6. Mario Party 4-7
The Mario Party series is still one of the best multiplayer games on the GameCube. Many modern fans of the series would say that the older games in the series were better than the newer ones.
How about this? It doesn’t really matter. Everyone has a favorite game, but the core appeal of each one is still the same. You roll a dice, move around a board, steal coins, and win. Because each game has a different set of games to play, this is what makes them different. It might be a good idea, though, to have a few drinks with your friends and get them all mad at you, so that they don’t want to talk to you again.
7. Custom Robo
Custom Robo is a game where you play as a mecha role-player. It was often overlooked both when it came out and now. While there is a single-player adventure, the arena fighting multiplayer is a mode that remains fun even fifteen years later.
You build a robot, put it up against a group of your friends, and go at it. The game is a lot of fun, and it’s not like any other game on the console. If you haven’t played it yet, do so now.
8. 007: Agent Under Fire (2002)
In EA’s Agent Under Fire, if you played GoldenEye on the N64, you know what to expect. That’s why it’s so great!
It’s a mix of James Bond and Quake’s gameplay.
If you’re looking for a fast-paced FPS that doesn’t look real and has weird physics, look no further.
Even more so if you like to play with Zero Gravity, Rocket Launcher Only rules, or just move around the map like Spider-Man with a gun, this is true for you.
9. 007: Nightfire (2002)
While the multiplayer is mostly the same with better graphics, what makes Nightfire better than its predecessor is how much better the single-player campaign is.
Back then, having a strong single-player campaign was more important than it is now.
There were some things the MP could have done better.
There were a lot of stages and characters to choose from, both in the game’s story mode as well as in other James Bond things.
10. SSX Tricky (2001)
Not only is it the best snowboarding game with the most personality, but it’s also one of the best games to play with your friends if you have a GameCube.
For more than just the high speeds and “Uber” tricks, EA Canada did a great job making SSX Tricky a fun and rewarding racing game. The twisting and turning racing levels will make you think of Sonic Adventure 2: Battle more than a real snowboarding track.
11. Red Faction II (2003)
When it comes to shooters, variety is the spice of life.
People used to play games at home, not against other people all over the world.
Red Faction II, though not as well-known as its predecessor, still has a lot of places to shoot your heart out and a lot of weapons.
Plus, this game lets you blow up walls. In today’s games, how many allow you to do that?
Today, I think the answer is Fortnite.
