PS2 seriously owns rhythm action

That shit's the mad notes.

Gamecube - Both Monkey Balls, Wind Waker

PS2 - Amplitude, Frequency, Dance Dance, Rez, Ico

Dreamcast - Space Channel 5

GBA - Wario Ware, Advance Wars

And a big shout out to the SSX series and Beyond Good and Evil. 2 mulitformat games that no one has an excuse not to play.

GC - Metroid Prime, Super Monkey Ball, Soul Calibur 2, Zelda The Wind Waker

Soul Calibur 2 is completely terrible. :( The gameplay is so insubstatial, so lightweight and unsatisfying. The Soul Calibur series = the new Mortal Kombat: drastically over hyped and aimed at ADHD-ridden twelve year olds. I don't think that the series will be remembered as a classic in a few years' time, and I don't think that it deserves to be.

Err, IMO 1080 Avalanche is a must-have for the Gamecube. Super Mario Sunshine definitely isn't, whilst Wind Waker is enjoyable but I can't say it's a must-have unless you haven't played Ocarina of Time or Majora's Mask, which are superior games in countless ways.

BTW, I think that Advance Wars should be built into Game Boy Advances. :D

PS2: ICO, Rez, Frequency, Magic Pengel

XBox: Halo

Gamecube: Metroid Prime, Pikmin, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Gameboy Advance: Advance Wars, Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World, Wario Ware

Those are the games that I think anyone should be able to enjoy. Games which I really like but which my liking can be attributed to dedication for the game or love for that genre are:

PS2: Tekken 4, Mad Maestro, Guilty Gear X, Dance Dance Revolution (Extreme)

XBox: Steel Battalion

Gamecube: Super Monkey Ball, Ikaruga

Gameboy Advance: Kuru Kuru Kururin

I strongly recommend you get heavily into a current-gen beat 'em up. There are a few good ones to choose from - VF4 Evo is where it's at I think.

PS2 - Metal Gear Solid 2, Ico, Devil May Cry, GTA: VC, Frequency.

Don't Own these but I know they're good.

CG - Viewtiful Joe, Ikaruga, Zelda: Wind Waker.

Xbox - Halo.

For all three - Burnout 2, Prince of Persia.

Just out of curiosity, I think that almost everyone in this thread says for the PS2 they should have Ico. Just wondering has evreyone here played it or they saying it because they been told that it's a great game? (Don't want to start arguements, just curious that's all)

I was just thinking the same. It gratifies me immensely to see Ico so popular, along with rez and frequency/amplitude.

Hi fives all round.
