I just beat the SNES version last year and had great fun with the old side scroller play.
Other than 1st party titles, anything else worth honorable mention?
Man, now look... Ijust got my xbox and here I am talking about getting a 3rd console! Must resist temptation.
I really consider GameCube to be worth the $150, especially with a free game (as the above stated, get Zelda).
As far as Metroid's concerned, I'd recommend you pick it up as soon as possible. I've been a fan since the original, and the newest may be the best Metroid yet-as hard as that is to believe. The first person perspective HELPS rather than hurts the gameplay. It's an incredible achievement in every way-aethetics, gameplay, funfactor, astmosphere, and trust me, my expectations were sky-high going in.
First party titles? Definitely get the Resident Evil remake (NOT Zero). You should be able to get it for $20 new, and it's very solid. Also consider Rogue Squadron (if you like pure shooters), and Eternal Darkness if you can find it for a good price.

I have a buddy that manages an EB and he says the price drop is coming very soon - less than 30 days [ they have the info now ] .
the xbox & ps2 will be $149.95 and the GC will be $99.95 [ he says these are confirmed prices ] .
