i just recently bought virtual console games even though i said i would never since i have a great pc emulator but...
the save feature on the wii is great. at any point in the game just press home and go back to the menu turn off your wii wake up the next day and continue exactly where you left off! this is awesome for snes and nes games.
n64 games suck a bit because this feature doesnt work and the analog stick is very wierdly placed on the classic controller.
what i mean is.. dig into the VC too..not just wii games.
