Wii Virtual Console games?

So, I found out about Nintendo's Virtual Console a while ago and didn't think much about it, so it just slipped past. Later I saw the Wii Classic Controller, it also just went past barely noticed.

Today (actually yesterday(for me), 2 hours ago) I saw a youtube comment on a Super Metroid video of the Wii Virtual Console and Wii Classic Controller being great to play these, so I checked them up. The boner-inducing power of those 3 combined took me out.

Sadly, there's a problem. You (I) can't buy wii points less than the size of 2000 Wii points and my list of games goes to 2600 Wii points.

The games I AM getting are Super Metroid, Super Mario World and Super Mario 64. Donkey Kong 64 isn't available (yet, hopefully).

So are there any games you can reccomend to me, since I missed the gaming during the 80-90ies(and probably up to around 2005 as well)?

Please make a list and I'll check them out. I'd be grateful. Now you can list NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Sega Master System, Mega Drive/Genesis, TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine, Neo Geo, Commodore 64, MSX. Now I only know a few of those, I just took them straight from Wikipedia's list of allowed consoles on Nintendo's Virtual Console.

It might asploed? OH NOES! HO ONSE!

Well, I'm displeased with Donkey Kong 64 and Conker's Bad Fur Day not being available.

Old Ninten' might add DK64 since they actually own it. Conker's is (actually) now belonging to Microsoft. Ouch...

Well, apparently I was wrong. I had a choise between 1000, 3000 and 5000 Nintendo Points.

oooooor you could pirate ROMs and then install emulators via the homebrew channel. There's NES and SNES for sure. I think they have an N64 emulator available as well but I didn't look into it as I don't have a bunch of N64 ROMs laying around like I do (S)NES ROMs from building my MAME cab.

One of the things you'd want to consider is that you'd want games that were actually more fun to play with a controller than to emulate. For example, I don't see much that would be gained by having a controller when playing 90% of RPGs, so throw those out the window right now, Secret of Mana and Super Mario RPG excluded. GET THOSE. (play Earthbound too, but without a controller)

The game that should be number one on your list for reasons to obvious to articulate is River City Ransom which is indisputably mankind's crowning achievement. Close behind that would be Legend of the Mystical Ninja and Kirby Super Star.

* You've already got Super Metroid, so that's good.
* If you feel like blowing a thousand points, I recommend Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10, 9 probably moreso than 10, but that's kind of if you're feeling old school. For the standard, cheaper Mega Man games, 2 or 3.
* Any of the pre-N64 Zelda games would be solid picks, as would Super Mario 3. NINTENDO
* aaronjer would yell at me if I didn't also mention Streets of Rage 2, which is the best standard, side-scrolling beat 'em up ever created and something we can both play for days on end.
* Metal Slug 2 was a great arcade game, though I don't know how it would function on Virtual Console.
* ActRaiser had a weird blend of platforming and simulation but I don't think it's something that has to be played with a controller.
* Balloon Fight is great fun for old arcade stuff.
* Castlevania is a platform standard bearer, and I'd recommend 3 or Rondo of Blood but both are quite hard. Same goes for Ninja Gaiden, the first game being the hardest and the others being somewhat easy. Vectorman is also worth a look though I'm the only person that ever knew about it (because I had a Genesis!).
* If you never played the Earthworm Jim games, do so, just be warned that they can be deceptively hard for how goofy they are.
* Donkey Kong Country is also a great series and one that's going to keep you occupied for hours.

Strangely enough, that seems like one of the more sane things to happen in an Earthworm Jim game. Nothing like bungee jumping with a military man made of snot, or chasing a cat through hell, or running across bacon strips in avoidance of giant enemy salt shakers, or answering game show questions asked by a severed head in the midst of a trip through intestinal villi as a blind cave salamander.

Thank you for that NatureJay. I've actually download Earthworm Jim to an emulator, didn't get anywhere since I thought it was a really cool platform shoot'em'up game thingy. I'll get it again. Thanks to Cloudy as well, for the video.

I don't actually like RPGs, especially if I have to pay for them. I'll just ignore the way those senteces were written that makes them seem like threats.

If I'm getting a Mega Man, it's the 9th. It's usually called THE best Mega Man game. If it's not, it's either tied with Mega Man 3 or in second place. Thanks.

Zelda is an RPG game (it's an right? You pronouce RPG arr-pee-gee, right?) and thus, I won't get it. I don't actually like any other Mario game than Super Mario World, which I've already gotten.

Side scroller beat'em'up doesn't seem that fun. I've checked out a Streets of Rage 2, didn't seem that fun. And a bit too repeditive... I hate repeditivitivitivitiness.

Metal Slug 2 looks really fun. I might get it. I've read that the 3rd is the best. If you've played that, would you agree?

I don't actually think that Castlevania seems like good games, I don't know why. It's not a buy for me.

I've played DKC on an emulator. I don't think that it was that fun, actually. I don't really like how they control, even if the game looks cool.

The 3(?) other games you posted of I didn't bother to comment about.

Thanks NatureJay

Zelda isn't an RPG, it's just kind of a swing your sword at things and crawl through dungeons while controlling one character thing. Action-adventure for lack of a better word.

I like Metal Slug 2 better in part because it's harder.

Well, I don't see RPGs as something with story telling. I see them as the games you have to play more than 30 hours to get halfways into the game.

I've always seen Zelda as one of those but greatly better. Not good enough for me, though. Not if I have to pay for it to test it. Except, like an emulator.

Well, my emulator seems to love crashing after I got windows 7, with the longest non-stop playing I've had on it now is 30 min. Like, defeating Crookomire in Super Metroid for it to crash and force me to replay that boss. The eleventh time...

I doubt I'll test Zelda that way.

Speaking of Zelda, the most entertaining-looking Zelda game would be Majora's Mask.

Majora's Mask is awful. The controls work differently every time you take ten steps. It's fucking annoying.

It's also fucking annoying that nothing is really permanent in the game which means that any time you'd have to complete a dungeon again if you wanted to reap the world changing effects of it. I quit shortly after playing through the first dungeon when I realized that.

I didn't get that far because I was sick of how often the effects of a button press changed.

In a Zelda game the only thing I want is for the game to give me a motherfucking sword and let me kill shit. So far Zelda 2 is the only one I've played where you just have the gog danmed sword when you start. Therefore it is the best.

No shit. It seemed like for a time they were all just going out of their way to come up with an earlier and more complicated origin story. Now you play as embryonic Link. You'll get a sword in the final hour of gameplay. Divide those cells, bitches.
