    Fellas, since I have now dolphin installed, and apparently my wii can also play GC games, what would you recommend? Are there any good RPGs besides Zelda?

    Tales of Symphonia is a good action fighter kind of RPG. It is also my namesake on this forum.

    Metroid Prime games have always felt like they were first person shooter Zelda games to me, if you want to give them a whirl.

    You mean you're not the Lord Yuan from Nausicaa?!?!?!?!??!!?



    Also try Lost Kingdom. It's a cardbattling RPG affair and quite fun. You basically have live action battles in a limited area of the main map (the game neatly has in and out of battle map movement, but restricts you to the area you can move in during a battle). Cards come from your designed deck at random and have various different kinds of effect.

    Some spawn a static unit that attacks at range - others are a direct attack which focuses from your moving character and either is a fast slash or a slower power-up attack. Others can be a circling monster that orbits you and bashes into other characters - some are healing etc..... Some summons are totally autonamus creatures that move around and engage.

    It also has a sequel on the Gamecube.

    The metal video you posted in the "listening to forum" reminded me of the game Baten Kaitos. That game as a fantastic soundtrack.

    It is a fantastic RPG, kind of sketchy voice acting (but the main character is done by the same guy as He-Man), and a cool deck building battle system with lots of different combo stuff to do.

    Sorry, but shouldn't this be in the general gaming forum?
