Pikmin (Gamecube) Gameplay

July 25, 2020

This is just a gameplay vid for Pikmin on the Gamecube.

In honor of both the release of Halo 4 and the presidential elections, I have decided to play some Pikmin…which…has…absolutely nothing to do with either event.

In my opinion, Nintendo is at their best when they are allowed to design games that are outside the box. Nothing against their main franchises, but some of my favorite Nintendo developed games are unique games like Pikmin.

Miyamoto has been quoted as saying that he got the inspiration for Pikmin while gardening in his back yard. It makes me wonder what king of ****ed up garden that guy has, but nonetheless, the end result is one of my favorite Gamecube games.

Pikmin is essentially an objective-based strategy game with minimal resource management. Yes, Nintendo fanboys, I know “Nintendo never copies,” but, essentially that’s what Pikmin is. It of course puts it’s own unique feel on the formula. The objectives revolve around finding 30 different pieces of Captain Olimar’s ship which crash lands on the planet after colliding with an asteroid. Olimar’s life-support system will only last for 30 days, so the game takes place under a time limit.

The game has a unique feel, and controls solidly, even allowing you to adjust the camera on the fly. The Pikmin, despite the large amount of them on the screen have decent A.I., and generally follow orders well. Occasionally they can act a little dumb, and find ways to kill themselves, but, overall, the controls work great.

Pikmin is a well designed, fun little game, and the biggest complain that I have against it, is the biggest weakness of the game. Due to the forced time limit of 30 in-game days, the game is very short, and has very little to keep you coming back after you’ve successfully completed it by finding all 30 parts before the 30 days is over. That being said, Pikmin is still worth experiencing if you have a Gamecube, or a Wii.

Bottom Line: If you have a GCN/Wii, and have never played Pikmin, it is definitely worth a look. It is a unique, and addictive game. If you have played it before, maybe it’s time to go back and give it another play. Games like these remind us that despite the quirky look or feel of a game, solid design speaks for a game when image fails.

  • I remember playing this at Walmart. I wanted this game, but I had a n64. Wow. So old. People who were born during the release of this game already graduated high school. Let that sink in.

  • I used to play this game when I was like 7 at a friends gamecube and I had such good memories about it. It only took me 15 years to finally find it!

  • It is just sad for me to only watch these games but not actually play it(unlike others here who played it on their childhood) because of the unavailability of consoles nowadays due to the Nintendo game company ever competing with other game companies while discontinuing the only consoles that can play certain games like this. That is why some of us search for emulators and roms instead but Nintendo itself is angry to pull out and ban all the sites connected to them. Thus the saying is somewhat true 'they only care about their money but not the future potential customers who will like them'. It is good to play Pikmin but the Gamecube's exclusivity for certain countries and discontinued production does not help me appreciate Pikmin more. Future versions of Wii do not support Gamecube games anymore, so it is useless for me to buy one just to play Pikmin. At least the future PS5 can support backwards like the PS games that I have and PS2, PS3, and PS4 games that I have never played before. If some people cried here because of nostalgia, I could cry here because of the beauty of the game but I can't play it at all! Thank you for the gameplay video anyways.

  • Dude. I remember the first time I had somehow left a pikman behind when nighttime came.
    It showed the animation of it running, desperately trying to get to me in time only to be left behind and killed.

    I had to turn the GameCube off. Really fucked me up lol

  • Thank you for just PLAYING the game (which is what we want to see) and not having HORRIDLY annoying vocal commentary that everyone else does

  • Meh, I just decided to let a dead guy vote in my place. That always seems to work out well.

  • Nope, I don't choose my tyrants. And before I hear the "If you don't vote, you don't get to complain," I still pay taxes to whatever idiots are in power, so I still have a say, because I'm paying for their stupidity regardless.Furthermore, AZ only has 4 electoral college votes meaning that it's pointless to even bother. I could care less about either idiot running anyway.

  • I probably would have loved this as a kid. Don't think I could play it now though, having played Overlord.

  • Damn it, my crappy computer is pissing me off, that's the third or fourth video in a row that it has messed up on. Grrrrr! Luckily, it's only for a little while.
