My favourite ever console. I doubt anything will ever come close. The Thousand Year Door, The Wind Waker, Animal Crossing, Sunshine, XIII, Pikmin 2, Metroid Prime, Double Dash!!, Power Tennis, TimeSplitters 2, 1080 Avalanche, F-Zero GX, Soul Calibur 2, Twilight Princess, Super Monkey Ball 2 and many more... so many hours of my life well spent. I think I'm lucky that the GC years ended as I started uni as I'd have missed out on so many games. Maybe it's because I'm not a huge FPS fan or maybe I've just gotten bored of games in general, but I don't think I'll ever be as big a games fan as I was during the GC era, and for that I think it'll forever hold the top spot for me.
Did anyone else take a (n almost perverse) pleasure in the GC's failures? Not in that I enjoyed seeing the console suffer - far from it - but there was a real sense of pride in backing the underdog, especially when I knew
* that it was superior to the far more popular competition in every way that mattered.
*Read: believed. Still do!
