Which console(s) do you own ?
Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo Gameboy, Nintendo Gameboy Color, Nintendo 64, Nintendo Gamecube, Nintendo Gameboy Advance, Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Sega Dreamcast, Playstation, and Playstation 2.

What are your favorite GameCube games and why ? Are they among your all-time favorite video games ?
I've always been a big fan of the Resident Evil series, ever since the original PS1 versions. Once I heard that the RE series was becoming an GC exclusive I knew I had to pick up the GC. These games are definitely some of my favorites of all time. I think I enjoy them so much because RE1 was the first game I played/owned for the PS1.

The mass question: what's the color of your Cube ? how many games and controllers do you own for it ? do you have a Game Boy Advance, a Nintendo DS ? do you play online or in LAN ?
Purple. 11 games, 2 controllers. Yes, both. Sometimes, on my PS2.

Which characteristic (graphics, sound, gameplay...) of a game do you value the most ?
Gameplay. Without that, the games aren't worth your time. Sound can suffer (RE1) and still be an awesome game, so can graphics (RE1).

Anything you regret about the GameCube ?
Not really. I guess more adult audience games.

What sort of game would you like to see on GameCube ?
Bigger variety of good games, rather than the only real good games being Nintendo character based.

Any gaming exploits ? Anything you achieved in a video game that you are particularly proud of ?
Not really. Owning all of the Resident Evil games ever made is pretty cool I guess.

What would you say to convince people to buy a GameCube ?
Tired of games with pretty looks, but nothing else besides that? Get both. The looks, and the gameplay. Buy a GC. Come on...you know you wanna.

Is there a not so well known GC title that you'd like to bring attention to ?
Def Jam Fight for NY. Awesome game. If you ignore it, you are mentally ill.

Would you like to say something to all the game makers at Nintendo Japan ? (they might read you !)
Concentrate on the Revolution now.

Thank you for answering Samurai Nintendo's questions !
