7. Skies of Arcadia Legends

Skies of Arcadia Legends is an enhanced port of one of the Sega Dreamcast’s finest titles. Legends improved on the original graphics, adjusted the game’s frequent enemy encounters, and added all-new content. The result is one of the best RPGs on GameCube, if not one of the best to ever land on a Nintendo console. With an endearing cast, and a world full of air-ship battles, and tons of historical references, Skies of Arcadia Legends helped fill the system’s RPG void.

Skies of Arcadia has never been blessed with a sequel, but the game’s legacy hasn’t been forgotten. The title’s main character Vyse has made a handful of other appearances since, most notably in Wii U launch title Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed.

    Glad to see Super Monkey Ball so high on the list. (Although I prefer the second one) It’s a shame that Amusement Vision isn’t around anymore, because I really enjoyed what they were doing on the GameCube.

    Great list. All are worthy of inclusion. I’m particularly glad to see Skies of Arcadia Legends get some love; it’s a very good RPG and filled a massive hole in the Cube library at the time of its release.

    I have long thought Baten Kaitos Origins to be the best of the Cube RPGs — better than Symphonia, better than Arcadia. It gets little love because it was released so late and sold in very few quantities. Even in my own list I left it off, mostly because Symphonia was a more groundbreaking and important RPG, and because its combat was pure awesome.
