Ebay or Amazon is where I would look.

Gamecube is a great system. Lots of good games.

Ok, heres the real question. Should I get an original Wii model (NOT the family edition/Wii mini) or an actual Cube? In Gamestop they have a Blast to the Past Bundle that includes like 4 games and a controller + the console for $60, but I can easily get a Gamecube from Goodwill not knowing the quality and get blown up by it.

Don't get a Wii. You already have a Wii U.

That Blast to the Past bundle, I would recommend not getting it unless the games that come with it are games that you want.

If you can, order a Gamecube off of Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=gamecube).

U might buy a wii and get gamecube.Wii supports all features of gamecube,but its just that u need to buy a gamecube feature for some games,i.e ramble feature.

However,ik u have a wii u.But,idek,wii u is a real commercial failure,like virtual boy.
MK 8 looks really good in terms of graphics,but lvl designs are actually bad,compared to prev versions.Like rainbow road,theres so much stations around the track,its hard to see,and very easy to get motion sickness.

U can try maybe keeping your wii u for wii and wii u games(tho for wii games its best for u to play on wii,other then if u want 1080p on the wiiu).Like mario kart 6(wii),theres alot of characters,a few bikes&karts,but the track design there are very good.

For double dash,its really good,too.Sunshine,the spiritual succesor of m64,is probably my 3rd fav game(2nd is yoshi island series,1st is galaxy and galaxy 2).The graphics there are awesome for a gamecube,and really interesting storyline.

P.S Dont get mario kart 7.The graphics/resolution there are worser then gamecube(yes!)(for 3DS in general)and like oh my godness the tracks design is a disaster for a few.For 3DS worthy games are like super smash bros.Super mario bros 3D land can be finished in 2-3 hrs,not worth the money.

For you wii u,just get this games.(some in virtual consoles)
-Super mario bros 3D world(alot better then 3DS one imo)
-Galaxy 1&2(i feel like its super cool.Hope they make galaxy 3 in NX)
-MK 6&8
-Super smash bros

I had melee long ago,recovred a brawl one,realized the brawl one is really fun xD
But the fourth one,in general,is better.

YESSSSSS!!! Super Mario Sunshine is like cuddling kittens while high while flying in heaven. You must get it.

I've heard really good things about Super Smash Bros Melee and Paper Mario as well.
And I loved Pikmin 3, so I imagine 1 & 2 are also pretty good.
