  1. i voted gamecube also , although i agree the n64 had less memorable games then the cube.

    The cube was very unoriginal hardware wise, a more powerful console then ps2 is nice but it didnt add any new innovating elements to itself like all the consoles before it.

    The n64 was original with its analog controller and 3d graphics and rumble pack.

  2. Great show, guys! As always…

    Commentary on the poll: I did not understand these results at all! Personally, the GameCube has been the top Nintendo console. Objectively, it was the console that gave us the biggest tech jump of all Nintendo consoles! Think about it: graphics chip that competed with all the same-gen consoles of its time (and much better than the PS2, for some applications better than the Xbox!). A huge refinement on controller design (for many, the best controller design ever). Nintendo finally entering the disc era. Optional 480p and widescreen output (unfortunately and inexplicably dropped on later units). Direct connectivity with the handheld unit (GBA) and adapter to play GBA games on the big screen (although I believe the SNES had an adapter for the Gameboy too).

    And as far as the software goes, just remember we that Animal Crossing and Pikmin got their start there. (Oh, and just for the record, Ikaruga was probably the best-looking 480p/widescreen supported game in that console!)

    And, guys, we are talking the year 2001 here!

    I believe most gamers’ memories of the Cube have been distorted by the drop of support it got in its last 18 months…
