As you will have observed, at this time marks 20 years for the reason that Nintendo GameCube launched in Japan and we (together with the remainder of the web) have been getting all nostalgic for Nintendo’s purple field.
As is customary on these important anniversaries (or any anniversary on the subject of social media — gotta mark these seventeenth and thirty sixth birthdays, too), the Twitterverse and Facebookverse and different variously dystopian ‘verses have been fairly rightly celebrating, with Gamecube trending in players’ ideas in a approach Nintendo needs it may need 20 years again.
With everybody sharing their favorite GameCube video games and recollections, one Phil Spencer, head of Xbox over at Microsoft, revealed his favorite GameCube sport ever on Twitter. No, it isn’t Mario, it isn’t Pikmin, it isn’t F-Zero — it isn’t even Billy Hatcher. It is…
Yep, it is Silicon Knights’ psychological horror Everlasting Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, a sport that is still GameCube-exclusive to today and one which sits at quantity 12 on our reader-ranked Prime 50 GameCube sport record on the time of writing. It is a traditional horror title stuffed with Lovecraftian-style lore and Previous God gore, and maybe most fondly remembered for its fantastically efficient ‘sanity results’, the place the sport would break the fourth wall to mess with the participant’s thoughts.
Is that this an indication? Does this imply Phil is working with Nintendo to carry the collection again in some type? Is Microsoft shopping for Nintendo?!?!…
Er, no, no, and no. Test your sanity meter, please.
Anyhow, good one, Phil — that may be a high quality online game launched for the Nintendo GameCube, and we approve of your superb style, sir.
Be at liberty to tell us under which GameCube sport you suppose Jim Ryan would name his favorite. We will say it is most likely… oh, a FIFA or one thing.
