Default Video Game Collecting thread

Figured I'd start a thread for general video game collecting. Recently I bought a Gamecube and have been tracking down as many games as I could locally. Have a solid list of games so far, probably gonna need to start ordering stuff online for the harder to find games though.

List of games:
-Metroid Prime
-Starfox Adventure
-The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
-Tales of Symphonia
-Super Smash Bros. Melee
-Paper Mario The Thousand-year Door
-Mario Party 7
-Mario Kart Double Dash
-Crazy Taxi
-Viewtiful Joe 1&2
-Super Mario Sunshine
-Timesplitters
-Tony Hawk Underground 1&2
-Need for speed underground
-Gun

Never actually owned a Gamecube before, so this will actually keep me pretty busy for a while. Also any recommendations would be appreciated.

You really need Luigi's Mansion. Great great game. Mario Party 4 was my favorite gamecube version of that too, so I'd recommend that. Pikmin was fantastic.

Others I've heard are great: Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, and Killer 7.


People shit on the gamecube a lot, but it put out a lot of my favorite Nintendo games.

I'd love to have it, way too expensive though. You see how much it goes for these days?

I was like 10 at the time, but I loved Sega Soccer Slam, SSX, and Super Monkey Ball. Those games, Smash Bros, and Mario Party were the only games I played even though I had 20+ titles.

Disappointing console, imo. PS2 and Game Boy pretty much stole all my video gaming time and I was a Nintendo fanboy up until that generation. Preferred the 64 (still my favorite) over Saturn and PS. SNES over Genesis. NES... And then the Gamecube came along and ruined it for me.

Timesplitters doe. Did that game come with a gun controller? Nevermind, I was thinking Time Crisis.

Smash bros is on a tier of it's own from the rest of those games.

Could anyone help me pick out what some of these games are? Guy is selling this along with a NES on Kajiji, just trying to figure out if it's worth it.

He want's $150 for everything, which is probably not a bad deal. I'm just trying to figure out if there's anything else decent in that stack, I can make out a few of them:
-Ice Hockey
-Punch out
-Darkman
-Mickey mousecapade
-tag team wrestling
-Winter games
-sesame street countdown
-Wrestlemania
-kung fu

I ended up passing on it. Really tempted, I could probably end up spending way too much money if I go for everything I see though. For now I'll probably just focus on Gamecube.

Did get Luigi's mansion and Lost kingdom for gamecube.

I have since added Luigi's Mansion and Pikmin to the collection, and also picked up a ps2 and dreamcast. Along with my original xbox, I now have all the 6th gen consoles. Dreamcast games seem to be a bit tougher to come by though, probably have to order stuff online in order to get any of the decent titles.

I also started this thread with the hopes that others would post about their own collections. If anyone else has something to post please share.
