Chibi-Robo! is probably the most under-rated game for the Nintendo Gamecube. Coming at the tail-end of the Gamecube's lifespan it didn't sell as many copies as it should have, at least in the U.S. It seemed to sell pretty well in Japan however.
You play the part of a tiny robot named Chibi-Robo. He's a pint sized robot only a few inches tall that just wants to make people happy. You start off with a very small battery that doesn't last very long, so you'll have to keep plugging yourself into power outlets to recharge. The more nice things you do for the family that owns you, the more happy points you earn that lets you buy more accessories, such as larger batteries, disguises, etc. The more power you have the further you can explore around the house as you try to uncover the mysteries going on in the Sanderson household. It sounds kind of cutesy which I think turned a lot of people away, but they're the ones missing out. Trust me, this game is a whole lot of fun. Hop on over to Amazon.com, eBay, or Gamestop and pick yourself up a copy today.
