I want to know what non-Mario games you would recommend for the Gamecube OR Game Boy Advance.  I have almost all Mario for my GBA, excluding old GBC games and TMNT1.  As for my GC game collection, I only have MG:TT, MK:DD, SMS, and SSBM.  Yeah I know, "Super Smash Bros isn't a Mario game", but that doesn't change the fact that I want something new that's not Mario related.  My N64 has a lot more variety, and it would be too late to buy games for that anyway.  Yeah I know, "No it isn't", but still.  So anyway, could you just say a few games and give a reason/description of why you like it?  Please... it's my only hope!  Yeah I know, "don't be so melodramatic", but I wanted to put 'please' somewhere in there to be polite.

Sonic Mega Collection: I don't know what your past experience with Sonic games is, but you can't go wrong with this.

Game Boy Advance:

Advance Wars: Turn-based battles pwn.
Metroid Zero Mission: For a period of time I did nothing but beat this game over and over, trying to get the eight ending pictures.

What the other people said was good, too.

I have just three things to say: I enjoyed your post, I'll cast another vote for The Wind Waker, and cheese.
