    I'm getting a wii and for Christmas I plan to play some retro games.
    Any suggestions? Any awesome oldies for me to try out? Cause I haven't played a single retro game in my life except for super mario and donkey kong.

    Yeah, buy a PSP.

    Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection + PSX support + emulators = retro games.

    I actually use my PSP over my Wii for retro shit...

    For Gamecube just read the Dios Mios thread.

    Metroid Prime? If you have a Wii, I'd suggest the Metroid Prime trilogy collection, that puts all the games on one disc.

    mmmm do you like shooters? not that shit fps that people play these days, I'm talking about shmups... you cant go more retro than that ;)

    I can recommend you the entire Treasure library:
    - Ikaruga (GameCube)
    - Gunstar Heroes (Genesis) (tecnically, not an shmup, but you shoot things)
    - Alien Soldier (Genesis)
    - Sin & Punishment: Earth Successor (N64)
    - Sin & Punishment: Star Successor (Wii) (not retro a game btw)

    Also, you should play:
    - Wild Guns (SNES)
    just to name a few

    A great website dedicated to retro gaming is RacketBoy. You should check it.

    Retro city rampage!

    ...and just about any game it makes references to. :P



    And I think the gamecube is a bit too young to be called "retro". But even then...I may be wrong, but I think retro is more defined by technical limitations than by age (which means first-generation 3D stuff at best).
