The top 100 GameCube games, according to aggregator site Metacritic.
For each game, I’ve listed the rank, the title, the year it was published and its Metacritic score.
The full list can be found here: http://www.metacritic.com/browse/games/score/metascore/all/gamecube/filtered
Note that many games “tied” for a metacritic score; for example, there were 9 separate games that all scored 84. To be consistent, I listed them here in the same order that Metacritic does.
There are also a surprisingly high number of sports games on this list.
What was even more surprising, was the number of games published by EA. There are 37 EA games on this list; more than a third! For a company that gets so much hate, that’s pretty surprising.
Why Metacritic? Simple: after my last 2 “top 100” lists (which were compiled by IGN), there were many accusations of editorial bias by the IGN writers. So, going to metacritic should, in theory, eliminate editorial leanings of a single outlet.
Chances are that if you liked a game that’s not on this list, it was just critically not very well received.
