Furthermore, the GameCube was bought way back in 2001. During its launch year. Friends of the grandparents bought the machine for their own grandchildren but saw minimum use. That we can see by the perfect condition of the box, controller. Furthermore, it seems she got some great games with her Nintendo GameCube from her grandparents, as well. As we can see a copy of Star Wars: Jedi Knight II and a bunch of others games. Additionally, the machine itself runs like brand new, with all the manuals and packaging intact.

This perfectly maintained Nintendo GameCube might sell for a lot of money. Especially when sold to passionate collectors and Nintendo fans. But considering the fact that the Nintendo GameCube was a sweet and thoughtful gift from the grandparents, selling is not an option.

It’s been 20 years since Nintendo GameCube was released, and 14 years since the console is out of production. Hence, games are rare and go for a large price. Yet, this console harbors some great games that still hold up today, such as Metroid Prime, Super Mario Galaxy, Legend of Zelda Wind Waker, and much more. A worthy but underrated competitor of the newly introduced Xbox and PlayStation 2 with its massive arsenal of games. One can’t be luckier. A truly great gift from the grandparents.
