    I've seen threads like this on other forums and thought it might spark some discussion (also, I'm always looking for a good, cheap game). So, what do you think are the best "greatest hits" or "player's choice" titles on your preferred format? That is, the titles that can be found most anywhere for less than $20.

    Mine, PS2 and GC only:

    PS2

    5) Jak and Daxter
    4) Kingdom Hearts
    3) Katamari Darmacy (not a GH, but $20 anyway)
    2) Sly Cooper
    1) Ratchet and Clank: GC

    GC (I'm a little short on this one, as there are so few games exclusive to the GC)

    3) Metroid Prime
    2) Zelda: Windwaker
    1) Super Mario Snshine

    I don't have a top 5 because I don't play that much anymore, but SSX 2 Tricky, is one of the games that my buddies and I love to play when we aren't playing Madden. We love to go head to head to see who can get the highest score.

    A couple Gamecube games not mentioned:
    Animal Crossing - The game itself is a blast, but included in the game is dozens of emulated NES games, including hard-to-find games like the original Super Mario Bros, Punchout, Adventures of Zelda, along with Donkey Kong, DK Jr, DK 3, Ice Climber, ...

    Super Monkey Ball 2 - Again the main game is great as an intense Marble Madness update, but the mini-games are full blown games in themselves such as Monkey Target, Monkey Bowling, Monkey Fight, Monkey Billiards, Monkey Race, Monkey Golf, ...

    Given that we're talking "Greatest Hits" games, or at least games in that price range, me thinks RE4 doesn't qualify. Incredible game, the GameCube's best, one of the best of this generation and arguably of all time, but the $50 price tag disqualifies it from this discussion. [​IMG]

    Tough task deciding on the top five of any platform (the PS2 has 104 titles currently under their Greatest Hits banner, the Gamecube 57 titles under the Player's Choice label, and Xbox with 64 Platinum Hits): Here's my list of the favourite 5 for each platform (no particular order):

    PlayStation 2:
    Grand Theft Auto III
    Gran Turismo™ 3: A-spec
    Soul Calibur® II
    SSX 3
    Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution

    Gamecube:
    Animal Crossing
    Resident Evil
    Resident Evil Zero
    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
    Viewtiful Joe

    Xbox:
    Crimson Skies®: High Road to Revenge™
    Dead or Alive 3
    Project Gotham Racing® 2
    RalliSport Challenge
    Star Wars®: Knights of the Old Republic™

    I was looking at some Xbox games at a store today and noticed Everything or Nothing in the special Greatest Hits case, so I'll add that to the list.
