    I have the option right now to get a 2,000 Wii Points Card, or a $20 Best Buy gift card. Problem is, I don't know which to do o.O"
    I mean, I own SM64 + OoT, I finished 64 but I hate OoT, so didn't play past finishing the Water Temple. But is there really any other good VC games?

    I'm thinking SMB3, but other than that I dunno. I don't have a CC controller, so I think SNES games are out, otherwise I'd download SMW in a heartbeat because I never played it before. But can someone recommend another game?
    Maybe if DLC for GH3 comes out I could use Wii Points as well, because I'm getting it for the Wii for Christmas. But I dunno, help?

    There's five billion good virtual title games. Here's a bunch that are without a doubt among the best games of all time!

    I've left out the SNES ones due to your controller issues, which is a real shame since it has the best games overall out of any system ever made.

    NES:
    Castlevania
    Kid Icarus
    Kirby's Adventure
    Legend of Zelda
    Metroid
    Ninja Gaiden
    Ninja Gaiden 2
    Super Mario Bros.
    Super Mario Bros. 2
    Super Mario Bros. The lost levels
    Super Mario Bros. 3
    Zelda 2: The Adventures of Link

    Sega Genesis:
    Gunstar Heroes
    Sonic the Hedgehog 2
    Sonic the Hedgehog 3

    N64:
    Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time (You hate this so your obviously deranged) [​IMG]
    Mario Kart 64
    Super Mario 64 (you already have this)
    Star Fox 64

    And these are just the utterly fantastic virtual console titles currently available. Theres' dozens of amazing games I didn't mention because they're a bit below all the ones on that list.

    Get the gift card and get yourself a cheap GC controller, then you open up a whole bunch more buying options for yourself on the VC in the future.

    Sorry I mis-read "don't have a CC" as "don't have a GC" controller.

    Well can't you play SNES games using the GC controller? [​IMG]

    I think you can, but I heard from someone that it's very uncomfortable. Is that even true? [​IMG]
    I don't trust the intranet these days.

    You never played SMW? [​IMG] You really are missing one of the best games of all time.
    The same goes for Super Metroid. If you never played it, get it [​IMG]

    EDIT: Yes, you can use a GC Controller for SNES games.

    Sorry I dont understand what you mean ?

    As far as I know you can use the CC (Classic controller) on SSBB

    anyone else confirm this ?

    Anyway : on topic now !

    If youre looking for nes games (to use the wii remote turned sideways) then check out all the Mario games (SMB3 is the best imo)

    But also look into the Zelda and Link games ! Classics !

    @coops024: Yes, you can use the Classic Controller for Brawl. @1Sailor: You can use the GC controller for VC games. It's not uncomfortable at all depending on the game. SMW for example, is quite difficult to play with it as the run buttons are behind your jump buttons but other then that it's fine. Also, I've had the CC for the past while and it's great. Very comfortable to hold and use and the buttons feel excellent. Wish I had this controller years ago [​IMG]

    On topic: I'd like to add to Pigwooly's list since SNES games are back on the table and I've got some great games to add as well:

    NES:
    Castlevania
    Kid Icarus
    Kirby's Adventure
    Legend of Zelda
    Metroid
    Ninja Gaiden
    Ninja Gaiden 2
    Super Mario Bros.
    Super Mario Bros. 2
    Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels
    Super Mario Bros. 3
    Zelda 2: The Adventures of Link

    Super Nintendo:
    Super Castlevania 4
    Super Metroid
    Super Mario World
    TLOZ: A Link of the Past

    Sega Genesis:
    Ristar (Not sure if anyone has played this one before but it's awesome [​IMG])
    Gunstar Heroes
    Sonic the Hedgehog (What's wrong with this one?!?! Ha.)
    Sonic the Hedgehog 2
    Sonic the Hedgehog 3

    N64:
    TLOZ: Ocarina of Time (You hate this so your obviously deranged)

    i like the vc, have only got a few games for it tho which are mostly n64 games.
    i have them all on n64 but it was packed away looong ago and cant really spare the room to have it set up ^^.
    my gf bought me a classic controller for one of my birthday presents last year so thought i better put it to good use.

    got:

    mario64
    starfox
    wave race
    zelda oot
    mario kart
    paper mario

    also i had 2 free nes games from the nintendo star points that have accumilated over the years.
    would have got another n64 game but there wasnt really any i wanted.

    super mario bros
    mario bros 2

    wasnt happy with the nes games tho, colours look kinda dull.
    nes games actually look better on an emulator in my opinion.

    Yes, but pokemon snap is no fun [​IMG]

    Buy Ninja Gaiden or MegaMan 1 or 2 for the NES.

    We can't get any of the Mega Man games on the NA VC yet [​IMG]

    The Ninja Gaiden games are awesome tho.

    Ok, so far I came down to 3 games that I really want. And it's between Kirby's Adventure, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, or Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Dunno which of the two Sonic's is better really, since people argue differently :\
    Help?

    "Kirby's Adventure" is just great, I got that myself. I haven't bothered downloading "Sonic 3", but I downloaded "Sonic 1" and "Sonic 2". I don't know if 3 is better than 2 or vice versa.

    You got the wrong link Hadrian (can't believe nobody noticed this until now).

    The correct link is: Virtual Console: Essentials

    Both Sonic downloads were more of a nostalgic nature since I played the first one a lot when I was younger and when a friend visited me, we dl'ed the second one as he has been playing this for ages on his Mega Drive. I think Sonic 2 is fun because it remains the charme of the original without adding too much new stuff. The pseudo 3D in one of the two player modes is also nice (and fun)!

    A comparison of Sonic and Kirby feels a bit strange though. Here's a try, Sonic has much faster gameplay and isn't as easy as Kirby, but Kirby has this wicked charme I always loved and for one of the last NES games it really rocks imo.
