    Top GameCube Games Worthy of a Wii Remake

    The GameCube often gets a bad rap for many of its questionable titles. Though it’s not as ostracized as the Wii for having some shovelware titles, many gamers believe the last generation of gaming belonged to the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. Regardless of that fact, the GameCube featured a great library of games. While many, such as Pikmin and Metroid Prime, have been remade for the Wii, others have not. Here is a list of the top GameCube games in need of a Wii remake.

    Luigi's Mansion

    The most successful GameCube launch title starred Mario’s younger—and more fearful—brother and pitted him against an onslaught of Luigi's Mansion Boos in a haunted mansion. Luigi’s Mansion showed that Luigi could hold his own, even if he remained terrified to the bone throughout the entire game. How cool would it be to control Luigi’s flashlight as well as the Poltergust 3000 with the Wii Remote? Capturing Boos would be more fun than ever before.

    Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour

    Wii Sports Golf was a perfect indication that golf could work on the Wii. Mario Power Tennis has already been remade for the Wii, so why Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour not remake Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour? With the console’s motion-sensing technology, Toadstool Tour could easily be loads of fun. Nintendo, Camelot, make it happen.

    Star Fox Adventures

    Star Fox Adventures was vastly different from previous games in the Star Fox series. Despite the fact that many loyalists took exception Star Fox Adventures to this, Star Fox Adventures was still a solid action adventure game, and it is easily one of the greatest games in the genre on the GameCube. Gathering comparisons to the Zelda franchise, Star Fox Adventures featured tons of exploration, clever puzzles, intuitive combat, and a handful of flying stages to appease die-hard fans of Fox McCloud’s airborne adventures. Regardless of the criticism the game garnered over being such a huge departure from the rest of the series, this is still an outstanding game worthy of both its merits and a motion-based remake.

    Super Mario Sunshine

    Some of Mario’s greatest adventures include Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario 64, and Super Mario Galaxy 2 among others. Super Super Mario Sunshine Mario Sunshine, though not one of the greatest games in the franchise, was still an incredibly fun platformer that introduced a new power-up to the series: FLUDD. With this water-filled jetpack, Mario was able to rocket through the sky, take down enemies by spraying them with water, and clean graffiti-covered walls. It was different, but it was fun, and with the motion-sensing capabilities of the Wii Remote, there’s no denying it would be all the more awesome if the game was remade.

    Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem

    What soon became a cult classic is also a game worthy of being updated for the Wii. Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition proved that the survival Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem horror genre could work on the Wii with outstanding, precise controls. The same is possible for Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. Though it’s highly unlikely that it will ever happen, a remake on the Wii would be great.

    Top GameCube Games Ready for Their Wii Remake

    Donkey Kong Jungle Beat and Mario Power Tennis are just two GameCube titles that received the New Play Control! treatment. Countless other titles are also worthy of being remade just as much if not more so than these titles. Among those games are Luigi’s Mansion, Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Star Fox Adventures, Super Mario Sunshine, and Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem.
