We know what you’re thinking. With all the retro systems out there, why are we talking about the GameCube? What do GameCube party games have that you can’t get from other systems? Actually, a lot of the best party games ever made are found exclusively on the GameCube, like Super Smash Bros Melee. And yes, we know that most of the franchises on this list have moved on to newer, “better” systems. Ok, fine. So tell us, where else you can find another Mario Kart: Double Dash title besides the GameCube? The answer: nowhere. Double Dash is a super-unique Mario Kart game that was only released on GameCube. And this is just one of many GameCube exclusives we’re going to review for you today. Get your multiplayer retro gaming party on with these hit GameCube titles.

Playing vintage video games lets you relive those moments of nostalgia. They also let you catch up on what you missed or never managed to finish.
We all remember our first console and first retro gaming console. For many of us, it was Mortal Kombat, Mario Kart, GoldenEye, or Super Mario 64. Those of us old enough to remember playing Super Mario Bros, Tetris, Contra, Castlevania, and the first Legend of Zelda. How about those not so popular titles from obscure consoles like PopFul Mail from the Sega CD Library.
People still play them and go back to them for many reasons. They offer gripping stories and hours of replayability. They also hold some of gaming's most ground-breaking and cherished moments.
Finally, retro games offer a sense of soul that many in the modern video game industry lack. Read on for a breakdown of the five reasons people keep coming back to vintage games.
I started playing Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones for GBA yesterday, and while on the Fire Emblem Wiki I glanced over the summary of the game’s reception, which went something like this:
Between 2005 and 2007, the U.S. game industry passed up first the movie and then the music industries in terms of overall revenue, clearly staking its claim as a major media player for anyone who was still unsure.
Every few months or so, I see another article about how the home gaming console is at death’s door. I don’t buy it. Most of my gaming happens on consoles, or handheld gaming console, and I expect to keep it that way for the foreseeable future. Here’s why.
Video games are one of the most important cultural developments of our time. The early 20th century had film, radio, and TV. The late 20th and early 21st centuries have the internet, computers, and video games.
The release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for iOS and Android last month got me thinking about the increasing number of Mobile Ports of Video Games being ported to mobile platforms. Not all mobile ports of PC and consoles games are good, but with so many here already and more coming all the time, there’s an astounding amount of quality gaming experiences ready to download to your phone or tablet.
Putting together a list of “The Best PlayStation 2 RPGs Games” is both easy and difficult. It’s easy in the sense that there’s no dearth of role-playing games—the system has more RPG titles than some short-lived consoles, like the TurboGrafx-16, has of any kind at all. The difficult part involves separating the wheat from the chaff.
Retro Video Games have come a long way since its inception. Although general knowledge suggests that the likes of Spacewar or Pong as the earliest form of video games, they are merely an evolved version of electronic games or computer games. Let's take a brief over-view of gaming history, and then showcase of the best retro video games that made gaming what it is today.
A couple of years back, while visiting with family over Thanksgiving, my cousins and siblings and I started playing the card game we call King Peasant (though it’s also called a lot of other things around the world).
Spoiler warning: This post contains spoilers for The Last of Us (little ones), the Left Behind DLC for The Last of Us (big ones), and, well, 1987’s Metroid.
I remember a time in about 1991 when I borrowed Super Mario Brothers 3 from a friend for a weekend. I wanted to beat it before I gave it back, but this being the relatively early days of console gaming,
Video game bosses. They’re the one thing that makes or breaks action games. You could have a good run through corridors, dungeons and caves, slaughtering wave after wave of enemies.
If you have a lot of games to sell, then by all means you have come to the right place.
The Old School Game Vault enables you to sell games from all different eras. From the ColecoVision, Nintendo NES, Nintendo 64, Playstation 2, PS1 and even the latest games on the market PS5, Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS and Xbox Series X.
Before we begin, let’s get something out of the way.
There’s literally no one on the planet who hasn’t dreamed of waking up one day, receiving a holographic phone call from a hot secretary who tells you “The world needs you.
Spoiler note: This post contains plot spoilers about Borderlands and Borderlands 2 and, by default, spoilers about the characters in the upcoming Pre-Sequel who also appear in Borderlands 2. Spoiling Borderlands 1 for you might actually be doing you a favor, though. That ending’s terrible.
For me, this is the "best buy" if you will for any new video game. Often referred to as "GOY" or "game of the year version" of a video game, which can be well worth the wait. As this version of the game will include the original game, but it will also include most all the "DLC's" for the game.
Buying a new gaming device is always exciting; until you get it home and find out that you don’t have everything you need to actually play it. So before you purchase that new PlayStation Vita, know your facts and avoid any unpleasant surprises.
I’m a pretty big Final Fantasy fan. I came into the series with VII and have played everything since besides the MMOs and the two sequels to the lackluster XIII. I’ve had conversations with friends about what the Final Fantasy musical RPG that never was would have looked like (I would totally play that—good or bad, it would be hilarious).
