Classic games[edit]

I removed the individual listing of the games from compilations such as The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition and Mega Man Anniversary Collection because there is no need for that information to be in this list. Furthermore, if we were to list all of the classic games in every GameCube game the list would be much less useful. For example, Midway Arcade Treasures has over 20 games. Intellivision Lives! has over 60. And then there's all the other titles that aren't compilations that have classic games, such as Animal Crossing. So unless someone can justify their being here, I don't think they belong here. --TheDotGamer Talk 00:38, Jun 8, 2005 (UTC)

The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition and Mega Man Anniversary Collection were actually sold for the GC. You can't just deny that they weren't games because they were individually sold games for the GC.Bovineboy2008 13:20, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

A nice thing to add[edit]

I think you could have the game ratings on the table as well. That might help to make this list featured.--SeQel (talk) 16:29, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Do you mean ESRB ratings or PEGI ratings? Since each country has their own rating system, it could become difficult to keep the size of the article down. Bovineboy2008 (talk) 18:29, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Quality indicator[edit]

I realise it's a bit POV, but might it be a worthwhile undertaking to somehow signal, say, the twenty most critically acclaimed games on the list? A decent guide would be www.metacritic.com or www.gamerankings.com. Foolish Mortal 19:48, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

I think it is too POV since every site has such a different top 20. Bovineboy2008 (talk) 20:55, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

North America, Europe, Japan only games[edit]

I removed this kind of information from the list since I think it should be in the games' articles. Furthermore, it could only be useful to North Americans, since it didn't list NA only, NA/EU only or NA/JP only games. This is contrary to Wikipedia NPOV. See also List of PlayStation 2 games and List of Xbox games. Mushroom 15:51, 18 October 2005 (UTC)

List of GC[edit]

You fools are all wondering why their are pictures in the list, and also for GC & PS2.

I did it, because it will make the list look better.

People will recoginze those games
Not just any picture, i added some noticable & popular games, for example Halo 2, but some people/wiki/vistors. Might want to put different pictures(that are not really popular, for example New Legend). And also no multiplatform game picture should be on, like Mortal Kombat, because if the picture is on there, then there should be a picture for GC & PS2 List.
All you have to do is...

  • Put a picture of a famous game list for either ps2, xbox or GC
    • For example, Halo 2, Ninja Gaiden, Devil May Cry, Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
  • Delete multiplatform picture games,
    • accpet for special ones, for example Soul Calibure 2

That is all i ask

Thanks:P

>x<ino 18:00, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

What you ask is too much, sorry JayKeaton 16:44, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Probably would be pushing fair use as well.--SeizureDog 17:50, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Game check[edit]

Using GameFAQs, someone please help me with checking to list if this list is complete and up to date. I have checked the following letters: 0ABCDEIQY.

  • Do NOT add canceled games. They go to List of cancelled video games.
  • Do NOT add TBA games unless they have an article. They are likely canceled otherwise.
  • Do NOT add European or Japanese titles if the North American title exists. For European titles, provide them with a <ref>European title</ref> after the North American title. Don't do this with Japanese titles as it will get very large very quickly.

I'd like to work on this and make it a Featured List. The Gamecube is winding down in terms of games so it's able to be rather stable. Once we get all of the games on here we need to work on making stubs for all of the red links. Chopchop people.--SeizureDog 18:11, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Sounds good! I'll be able to help some with making stubs for the red links, got rid of some for A and B already. I'd also like to recommend using my CVG Infobox Maker to help creating them. --ADeveria 19:09, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
Took me a month to wonder back over here but I must say it's looking pretty good :) Nice sea of blue starts off the list right off the bat. I'll work at expanding it a bit more.--SeizureDog 00:53, 4 July 2006 (UTC)
If so, the list will need some sort of table system, pictures, and most importantly citations. No self-referencing afterall. 74.137.230.39 15:24, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
The European titles should be integrated back into the list, it took me a long time to find the article for Mario Smash Football not knowing the North American title. Having the list as it is is clearly biased towards Americans and therefore in violation of wikipedia policy. Take a look at List of Nintendo 64 games for an alternative. Timkovski 17:29, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
As no-one has objected in over a week, I shall integrate the European titles back into the list. Timkovski 22:18, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
As already mentioned, this article needs some work so I added the {{cleanup-list}} and {{listdev}} templates. I suggest looking at the List of Nintendo 64 games and List of Wii games for an idea on the layout this list should follow. Ceros 16:39, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

incomplete?[edit]

What's incomplete about this list? 02:53, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Good question, I've wondered this too. Of course it would be useful to compare it with several "as-complete-as-possible" lists and cite their references, just to be sure... --ADeveria 12:08, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

"Ace Golf" is for example missing! and i just looked through "A" till now ^_^ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.178.189.87 (talk) 03:03, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

bond[edit]

nightfire and from russia with love appear twice on this list. 69.244.101.216 13:00, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, I have removed the duplicate entries. Mushroom (Talk) 06:18, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Tables are done[edit]

So they are. What next? FLC? --PresN 22:05, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

I guess that in List of Nintendo 64 games's FLC they complained about referencing the canceled games, so I suppose that should be done before FLC. --PresN 05:59, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Flags[edit]

I don't like them. Contrary to popular belief, North America != USA and Europe != European Union. Right now the list says no Gamecube games have ever been released in Canada or Norway. I propose removing the flags and splitting that column in three, one for each region (and name them JPN, NA, and EU for example). Then we can use something like Yes check.svg instead of the flags. Davhorn 11:58, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Disagree, and yes, this has been haggled over before. Most recently, it's been specifically discussed as to how it relates to this list. Please see the discussion and the comments from SeizureDog at:
Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Computer_and_video_games#Help_wanted:_List_of_GameCube_games
-- Slordak 14:53, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
I don't see how his comments makes Europe = European Union come true. It's still inexact and I don't see why Yes check.svg would be any worse. Davhorn 16:01, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Merge from Chronological list of GameCube games[edit]

Please merge relevant content, if any, from Chronological list of GameCube games per Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Chronological list of GameCube games. (If there is nothing to merge, just leave it as a redirect.) Thanks. Quarl (talk) 2007-03-11 01:09Z

I suspect there's nothing to add; the list here was exhaustively scrubbed, so the only items which would be missing would be speculative or cancelled titles. There shouldn't be any actually released titles which are missing. -- Slordak 13:28, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

At least 1 title missing - Defender[edit]

Hi, congrats for list. There is at least 1 title missing though: Defender Published by Midway. I can assure you it exists, I have a gamecube copy. It has been released for certain in US and in Europe. I highly doubt it has been released in Japan, but am not certain. Some titles are hard to identify, as they had very little publicity or have been released to a very little amount of copies. What I would suggest is to go on gamespot and display full GC list. The trap is that they identify (rarely) some cancelled games while they have NOT been cancelled and while we find some actual copies on e-bay. I might do that and give a hand. Thanks 89.124.55.131 14:36, 25 May 2007 (UTC)THPOW

Similarly, does Virtua Striker 3 not exist for the GameCube? Think I saw it around somewhere?
  • edit1* it seems like I have 2 copies of Virtua Striker. Though they appear similar, the banner image is different: one says 'Virtua Striker 3 ver.2002', while the other just states 'Virtua Striker 2002'. I'm unable to check the games, but it would seem that Virtua Striker 3 was developed and at some point renamed to Virtua Striker 2002.
  • edit2* From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amusement_Vision : there apparently were 2 versions of the Virtua Striker game for GameCube, the latter of which seems to 'use a new technology (based on the advanced Nintendo GameCube specifications) and new data (new players, countries and improved controls)'.

"Mortal Kombat: Deception" and Europe[edit]

I think that Europe flag should be removed, as the game did NOT come out in Europe. It did indeed come out for PS2 and Xbox everywhere, but they only made a NTSC Version for Gamecube, meaning it's simply not playable on normal EU machines... therefore, no EU flag. Right?

Gamecube Exclusive[edit]

I think it would be helpful to add an "Exclusive" column on this list. Just a thought. If anyone is interested I'll gladly spend some time on it. Rpgking4 (talk) 23:26, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Just wondering what your problem is with the exclusive column, A Link to the Past? How is it hurting anything? I understand why you want to change the flags, but having and exclusive column, in my opinion is helpful, whether you see it that way or not. Do you have an actual reason for removing it? Rpgking4 (talk) 18:40, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Well, first, how about a reason to include that doesn't allow for almost every single detail of the game (ie multiplayer, online, genre, Game Rankings aggregate, etc.). All of that is very helpful, but we don't NEED it on the list. Why should I have to explain why we don't need it before you explain why it improves the list? - A Link to the Past (talk) 06:44, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result was to redirect to List of Nintendo GameCube games per clear consensus to do so. MuZemike (talk) 15:13, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

I propose that the List of multiple-disc Nintendo GameCube games be merged or even plainly redirected to List of Nintendo GameCube games as it seems to be the result of overcategorization of lists. Please discuss below as whether you support merging, redirecting, or opposing any merge or redirect. MuZemike (talk) 21:13, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

The list is other list is quite small and doesn't really help add anything by the classification that couldn't be shown on an infobox.じんない 01:38, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
  • Redirect: I really don't think the two discs information would fit into the main list without expanding the tables too far; neither do I think the information is of the utmost importance to include. Just create a re-direct page. -- Nomader (Talk) 01:44, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
I think the multiple disc article should be redirected. A game having two discs isn't a very notable aspect that needs a new article to describe. RobJ1981 (talk) 05:55, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
I agree that the other article doesn't need to exist. There aren't a lot of titles in that list and a simple footnote on this list would do the same job as that entire article. -Zomic13 (talk) 06:55, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.


Thanks a lot for deleting the other list without merging it's content into this list. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.67.144.184 (talk) 23:21, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

The information is still there [1] for anyone that wishes to include it here, but general readers shouldn't be expected to go to a page without references. Even if it was included here it would need references. (Floppydog66 (talk) 05:16, 13 July 2010 (UTC))

Peter Jackson[edit]

I think "Peter Jackson's King Kong" should go in the "P" section. I will do this if no one disagrees. Bovineboy2008 (talk) 16:29, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Flags (2)[edit]

I am starting a discussion about the use of flagicons as to avoid an edit war. I personally think that the flags give the page a cleaner look while effectively portraying the text versions. I understand that there is a problem with loading times, but I can't think of anything else that would have the same effect. I am assuming we want to get this list to feature status so let's discuss. Bovineboy2008 (talk) 23:12, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Your argument is entirely cosmetic, and is only of use to those who can handle this many images on a page. Why ISN'T loading times a good enough reason? Wikipedia has the ability to disable images because there are users who cannot handle very many images at all. Your version would make the article effectively useless - if the images are disabled for 56kers, the entire column is disabled for them. There's no reason to have flagicons except to make it look neater, and your argument doesn't nearly explain why this article will be of quality to a great majority of people who cannot have a DSL or Broadband connection. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 23:20, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
Also, the US and EU flag does not translated into NA and PAL, it's US and EU. It excludes Mexico, Canada, Africa, and Australia. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 23:21, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
I agree with you. But I think we should be looking at the cosmetics as well as the content. So the flags aren't the best way to go; is there some other way than merely listing text versions? Bovineboy2008 (talk)
No. The article is very large kb-wise, larger than it should be for the size of the list. Many articles use this style, and cosmetics should be sacrificed for the sake of the majority. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 04:52, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Missing Game[edit]

I'm not adding it myself due to the frequent edits and monitoring of additions.

Auto Modellista U.S. Tuned[1]

Picketf (talk) 05:27, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

According to GameFAQs it is the same game as Auto Modellista. Bovineboy2008 (talk) 15:31, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

How about you look more closely to the different release dats the different region and the different game titles? I can say for sure they are different games because I own both. The US Tuned version came out ages later with US cars added to the original Japanese only car roaster

Picketf (talk) 01:50, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

I can't say that I know personally, but lots of times, games are rereleased with updated features but essentially the same gameplay/story and are considered the same game. Bovineboy2008 (talk) 02:02, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Didn't UBI SOFT release ChessMaster for the Gamecube? 24.68.50.33 (talk) 02:24, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Futurama[edit]

Here's the information on IGN. I checked the PAL reference used here and it doesn't list this game, so that's one to one, unless someone else can find it's release date. But because it isn't being mentioned in one PAL region, doesn't mean it wasn't released in another. But I haven't found any stores selling it in Europe, even on the various Ebay, Amazon, or other sites.

IGN.com's Futurama Gamecube entry

At the top of the page it says;

  • "Futurama was since cancelled for release on Nintendo GameCube."

And below that it says;

  • "Head-to-Head

Aug 13, 2003 - VUGames recently released the Fox cartoon Futurama in videogame form on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox consoles. While it's actually available on the GameCube as well in Europe, the title was not released here in the U.S. on Nintendo's system."

The article Futurama (video game), says that it may have been cancelled, but so far there is only IGN's view, where it contradicts itself. Hopefully someone else can find a better Europe source and prove the point one way or another. (Floppydog66 (talk) 05:16, 13 July 2010 (UTC))

Considering its no where to be found on neither the US nor UK Nintendo webpage, I'm going to vote no. BOVINEBOY2008 10:49, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
I agree, I could find no supporting evidence for IGN's claim that it was "actually available on the GameCube as well in Europe". I'll reference the game as cancelled on the game's article. And it shouldn't be re-added here without better proof, and a reference. (Floppydog66 (talk) 14:06, 13 July 2010 (UTC))

You've missed Franklin, I have found a French version only and currently own it. It's on eBay France at the moment.

Another one you missed is TMNT, the Turtles game from the animated movie. In all countries it was shoven to the Wii, but Germany still released it on the GameCube. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.125.165.139 (talk) 15:50, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

naming consistence.[edit]

Hello, I would like to talk to the one that monitors the way things are named. I'm basing a project of of this wiki page and want to understand why things are not consistent. I have gone through each game one by one for my project and keep running in to simple deviations in the naming. I dont have a full list of what all is wrong but would be happy to provide such a thing. Also where do the names come from? I'm guessing form the actual game box? More to the point, how do you know when its a chapter in the saga if you will.
Examples: ( batman being the saga, chapter to follow )
Batman Begins
Batman: Dark Tomorrow
Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu
Batman Vengeance

At first I figured to use the ':' only when the "chapter" ( for a lack of a better word ) has two words or more. Though in the case of "Die Hard: Vendetta", well that toss that idea out the window.

here are two more:
Freestyle MetalX
Freestyle Street Soccer

Neither use the colon ?

Also, side note. Typically its a '-' not a ':' but as long as its consistent that is no big deal.

To me its imperative that the consistency is spot on, so if its of no consequence to you, I'd like to clean it up. If you have some sort of consistency I dont quite understand, I'd like not to mess with it. Any thoughts? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ulaoulao (talkcontribs) 21:58, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Missing Nighfire 007[edit]

This list is missing Nightfire 007 - an earlier post listed a duplicate entry was deleted, but now their is no entry at all.

Just a heads up since the list format is too confusing for me to add myself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.102.236.86 (talk) 17:54, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Suggestion for "Year(s) released" column[edit]

Just a small suggestion for the "Year(s) released" column. Since many games are not always released at the same time in the JP, NA, and PAL regions due to localization requirements and other issues, I think we should specify the year(s) of the game's release whenever it is different for two or more regions.

Here is an example using Donkey Konga, which was released in 2003 in JP and 2004 in the NA and PAL regions. Source

Title(s) Year(s) released Developer(s) Publisher(s) Region(s) released
Donkey Konga 2003JP
2004NA, PAL
Namco Nintendo JP, NA, PAL

And if the game was released in the same year for all three regions or was exclusive to one region, then we can just leave the year as it is. - Poopmai (talk) 09:32, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Missing game[edit]
