I...only had 8 games that I was even willing to consider. And even then, I took two out. I went through the Wikipedia list several times to be sure but I guess I don't love as many Gamecube games as I thought I did; HOWEVER, the ones that I do love, ooooooooooooooh mama, they are each on a Boys Don't Cry level of love.
Taking a moment to talk games not on my list: Ikaruga is awesome but I have not played it enough and I never will because hard games no longer spark joy for me (don't know that they ever did if I'm being honest).
Did you hate Super Mario Sunshine because it was such a departure from the rest of the series, particularly 64? Well, while I may not have the cure for bad taste, I can definitely recommend Vexx as being much more Mario 64 than Sunshine is. I'm sure Tak and all those other mascots are too but I've only ever played Vexx.
Skies of Arcadia Legends is just ok.
Play Tiger Woods 03 and 04. For my money, the best blend of arcade and sim golf games ever made.
