Worth owning, even years after the GameCube era

Summary: I remember renting this game back in 2005 without hearing anything about it. I just saw it and thought I would try it. Years later I decided I have to buy it. I kept thinking to myself, did I really play a game that simulates a game over screen? I've been building up my collection of GameCube games this past year and I started with games that I remember playing and thought they were fun.
Best Psychological Horror Action-Adventure game on Gamecube

Summary: Well to be fair this is also the only psychological horror action-adventure game on any platform that I know of. This unique game has an amazing atmosphere and really great soundtrack. The graphics are also really good. You play the game as the grand-daughter of some guy that just died and so you visit her mansion. While you are there you start finding chapters of this ancient book and for each chapter you find you get to play as the character the chapter is about.
Summary: This is the first survival-horror game that I've ever played. I never really got into the genre, but this game always intrigued me. I read about it when it first came out, and the game's new feature of the sanity meter sounded really cool. One of my friends (who is now my roommate) has the game, so I finally tried it, and was blown away. Right from the beginning, things start off creepy, and they only get worse (which, for players, means better).
Summary: I happened apon this little gem by mistake, getting it free in a pawn shop deal. I began playing at 11:30 at night, with all the lights down, becuase I have had to work to get a horror feeling in the last games. Yet from the beginning, H.P. Lovecraft's influence guides this powerful epic to an almost mythical proportion. The preface itself is unusual, where you play as 13 characters, over a span of two millinnia, each having absolutely nothing in common with the other.
Summary: Nintendo likes to stick to the tried and true methods for their games. There have been at least 30 games that involve Mario or Luigi, 10 that involve Link, 10 that involve Donkey Kong, and 7 or 8 that involve Samus. And, don't get me wrong, that's not necessarily a bad thing, each successive game has brought new innovations to those games' respective genres, but the characters themselves are starting to show their age.
Saving the World (and Your Sanity) Over 2000 Years

Summary: I LOVED this game. A real gaming milestone in every sense of the word. One of the best and most complex, immersive, satisfying gaming experiences of my life -- I've been obsessed with it for THREE WEEKS. I played it three times through, and was never bored once. ETERNAL DARKNESS: SANITY'S REQUIEM offers everything gamers hope for in a game (and far too often, are disappointed): a strong heroine, great and interesting and very varied characters (you will play for more...
Summary: I am have been a Nintendo fan for a long, long time. But one thing I always had to give other systems credit for was the fact: Nintendo doesn't make Horror games. They just didn't. Until now. The Darkness comes... Eternal Darkness, that is, and it's made by Nintendo. I know Resident Evil is for Gamecube, but that was made by Capcom. This is a Nintendo-made scarefest. And man oh man, is it a good one. This game is great.
Summary: Its not very often you see any breakout games in the horror/survival genre. This game brought that to the table. More than gimmicks, the original aspects of this game put it in a class by itself, hands down. What is so different about Eternal Darkness? Well, for starters lets list the similarities to other games such as Resident Evil and various others. You have a health meter. If it is depleted, you die.
Summary: Eternal Darkness is the best game I have played in awhile. First the plot is good, it makes you want to play the game just to find out what is going to happen next. The game is challenging, the enemies are pretty hard to kill, and not only do you have a health meter to watch but a sanity meter, as well. This game gives you a variety of charcters to play as and allows you to live the storyline from each charcters perspective.
Summary: This is my favorite Gamecube game! Words can't even describe how awesome it is. Just buy it and see for yourself. The sanity feature is what makes this game special. I have actually believed things were happening, like one time when I went to save it, it said "are you sure you want to delete all your game files?" I was freaked out 'cause I was pretty far in the game. I carefully read what it said and pressed "no, continue game".
