Wow, that is seriously bloody impressive!  :13:

Not a console I have ever paid much attention too but probably will at some point given that I can play GC games on my Wii.

That's the full PAL set. Been picking up a few ntsc-u and j games here and there but only when i see them at a good price. Barring a few titles it was pretty easy to complete, tbh.

Thanks guys.

I don't think i'd attempt another full set collection. I tend to just buy the genres that interest me these days, like rpg's, puzzle games etc but i had so many GC games i thought i may as well go for it. There's not so much chaff on the GC as other systems either. It also has the lowest amount of retail games compared to the other machines of its generation. The toughest titles to find were the country exclusives like the German Shrek smash and crash racing and French Teen Titans. (Don't laugh at Shrek...its a surprisingly good kart racer and very, very pretty)

There's approx 450 solus titles as opposed to around 800 xbox and over 2000 PS2 games. So there's less space considerations too.

Get a modded cube and explore the brilliance of some of the japanese exclusives. great remakes of Adventure island, and Bonk.

plus you can get great sfuff like dreammix TV fighters -  agreat smash bros style game that features the likes of snake ( from metal gear ) master higgins ( adventure island ) megatron and optimus prime, simon belmont, and Bomberman + characters from Gradius, Bloody roar, micronauts etc.
A real hidden gem.

Plus those tiny little jap boxes are lovely looking as well.

Best of all is the GBA player, some amazing games that, if you stick to the 2d ones, look great on a big screen.

an underrated stunner of a console that a lot of people should give a chance.

I own one but I now use the wii, I loved the awesome Metroid Prime and Resident Evil 4, for me those two games are two of the best I've ever played, and I'm not a huge Nintendo fan to begin with ;) I also owned eternal darkness but never managed to play it/enjoy it

I knew that collection before looking at the username!

I've probably said it before on RG but again, absolutely stunning. Love all the hardware variants especially the ToS pack and that Spice Orange set-up.
