    I am having knee surgery in a couple weeks and am going to be stuck in bed for two weeks. The last two games I bought were Metroid Prime and Jedi Outcast when they came out.

    I want a couple games that will hold my interest for a couple weeks.

    Pick up the new Zelda game, and get the bonus disc if you can. Also, get Animal Crossing. You'll be all set with them.

    Burnout 2 is fun if you like racing games.[​IMG]

    I like the get friends plan. Get friends, play smash brothers, repeat for hours.

    Larry, it would probably help if you told us what games you had, since otherwise it's difficult to make recommendations. However, Eternal Darkness is a good buy simply because it's a good game and is available at bargain prices.

    If you like RPGs, Skies of Arcadia should keep you occupied for a good long while too. The Zelda title plus bonus disk is another good pick somebody mentioned.

    OK. I own (or have owned) for the Game Cube:

    Rogue Leader
    Jedi Outcast 2
    Madden 2002*
    NCAA Football 2003
    Godzilla Destroy All Monsters
    Eternall Darkness*
    James Bong Agent Under Fire*
    Metroid Prime*
    Medal of Honor
    Turok*
    Sonic Adventure*
    Luigi's Mansion*

    *=sold after I finished.

    BTW, I'm 39 years old and all my friends have day jobs and or wives, so I guess I am looking for something to play solo. My absolute favorite game of all time was Perfect Dark for the N64.

    I have been leaning towards Zelda and maybe a baseball game (any recomendations?). But I'd also like a new FPS that won't get too boring after completing the game the first time.

    Since it made you laugh I won't correct my typo.

    What is Ikaruga about?

    Haven't much to add except that I just got myself a GameCube with Mem card/Super Mario Sunshine pack in for 159.99 and Zelda: WindWaker. Arrgh - more gaming bliss with the added cost of collecting for... next gen console #2.


    On my list to get are ::

    Animal Crossing
    Ikaruga
    Metroid Prime
    Super Smash Brothers Melee

    Maybe:
    Skies of Arcadia Legends (I still haven't played the DC version - why? Too much anime!)

    Any other suggestions? Reviews would also be good...

    I will probably hunt for older releases in bargain bins and used game sections. Saves money for more anime and movie DVDs... [​IMG]

    Ikaruga is an old school style vertical shooter. It's also the most challenging game I've ever played. It's like white knuckle, eyes bleedingly intense.

    But if you like shooters, it's THE one to get. Very impressive graphics, and 2 player co-op really add to it.

    Hey Larry,

    If you liked Perfect Dark for N64, I think you might like Time Splitters 2. I think it is the best FPS for GameCube. Also you might like James Bond Nightfire.
