I have often said similar comments as SFO says. I feel that SNES was the best system game title wise. The RPG's were long, interesting, and fun! (wish that we would have gotten the Dragon Warrior/Quest ones here in the states).
I grew up with Atari and then I really loved both NES and SNES......and then of course I bought all the other systems afterwards, but the enjoyment I had with SNES titles were far more intense than with other systems. I was so sad when the N64 came out and the lack of RPG's......made me buy a PS1 so I could continue that fun, but by then, they were trying to make 3d stuff and it just wasn't the same.
But, however, I really like the Wii. I enjoy the controllers, the games I have (I have 9 disc games and about 20 vc games). The controller works for me, the titles are fun, and I enjoy myself. It's a different kind of enjoyment, but it works for me, as I understand that games just progress and we can't go back to where it was. The biggest thing I am grateful for is the VC, so I can have my other system games on there instead of having to plug in all of the systems. At one time I owned 13 systems at once (NES, SNES, 64, Cube, GBC, GBA, Master, Genesis, Gear, PS1, PS2, Saturn, Ghettocast) and it was just too much. Now I am down to a 360, Wii, DS, GCN(kept for the gba player), and Ps2 and it's much easier to maintain my entertainment center.
God, in my old age I rambled on. Sorry! Anyways, as much as I feel about SNES, I feel that Nintendo is back on track. So I agree with Lee that Nintendo is back on track from it's N64/cube days, and I could see how it would be hard for you as someone who didn't grow up with the older systems before the newer ones came out to not feel that nostalgia. And I also think the DS and GBA work well for the SNES nostalgia effects, as Rolex pointed out.
