    BOOOOOO! Yes commodore was cool, but I dont want it screwing up the flow of games.....did someone actually say C64 was better than NES? LOL

    Look, I own a commodore 64, I own a C64 tshirt I bought recently that says
    "Load *,8, 1" or whatever, this is terrible shitty news.....5$

    Here, Ill list the games I like.

    -Hardball - we dont need a shitty baseball game, we dont even have bases loaded, RBI yet,

    -Escape from castle wolfenstein - just a piece of shit these days

    -Strip poker - yes, I saw orange and yellow titties when I was a tike.

    - anyone ever played police quest? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    Nintendo is ****ing stupid and greedy. That is the dumbest idea ever.
    DigitalDJ still uses Wiichat. IF YOU SEE HIM LET HIM KNOW HOW YOU FEEL.

    Anyone ever heard the Timbaland produced Nelly Furtado song that used the Commodore 64? I think they had some sort of legal trouble with it since it contained samples from a song produced in the C64's music community.

    There's a Sidstation synth created using the SID chip. I think the music thing is probably the biggest legacy of the C64 at this point to be honest and it's something that can't really be reproduced through emulation to the same effect. Yeah, I'm a music nerd. I want to get an actual C64 and get the Prophet 64 cartridge to make tunes with a midi keyboard :-)

    I still like the idea of the C64 games, though. I definitely want to play the ones I listed since they have such a positive reputation and are supposed to be way ahead of their time with games ripping them off nearly 10 years after the fact. There was an article over at Digitpress talking about some of the best games for C64 and talking about how one was the precursor to space ship strategy games like Herzog Zwei.

    The more the better in my opinion, all though C64 didn't have a butt load to offer game wise, the concept of the VC console is for retro gaming. If your looking for newer style games you just have to wait for Wii-ware...

    Really I would like to see some other intresting rare consoles.

    3DO would be perfect if they got some of the old 80's/90's video arcade style gamesthat came on it, the on-rail-shooters where its real video of people that you shoot..lol i have a few but not alot they crack me up so bad.

    Dreamcast would be awsome, aswell as the other SEGA consoles,Sega Master,Sega CD and 32x to add to the current Genesis lineup, Sega Saturn... All of them, might as well SEGA pretty much gives Nintendo whatever they want these days just to get a buck.

    Atari? what the heck? out of all of them this should have been the first after the acctual Nintendo consoles, no excuse for not having it!

    Beyond that maybe even work some oldschool GameGear Games for the new demo download content for the DS as well as the other cool Handhelds over the years like NeoGeo pocket, Turbo express, and all the older gameboys.
    Even though they have to pay a small license fee for some of the games that Nintendo didn't publish, still they make a good profit off something thats not real. They should drop the price if possibal it will just increase sales how many people have 400 points because there is nothing less than 500 for sale? lol

    The complaint of them not replacing the downloaded games when a unit brakes is pretty misleading. There have been plenty of people that have had there VC games downloaded on a replacement Wii, you just have to link your " Nintendo" account with your "Wii" and it keeps record of your purchases, in the end protecting you if anything goes wrong.

    None of the good C64 games will make it to the Wii.

    Good-Great ones: WitchKing, Test Drive, Raid on Bungling Bay, Crush Crumble Chomp, Racing Destruction Set, Blue Max, Ultima Series, Jump Man, Choplifter, Summer and Winter Games, Santa Paravia, Castle of Doctor Creep, Dunjonquest Series, Fort Apocalypse, Mail order Monsters, M.U.L.E., Strike Fleet, Shamus (NO, not that shamus), and don't forget ALL the Infocom games.

    Hand held games should allways be that
    Hand held games allways look a bit rubish on a big screen (trust me theres some thing wrong with Game boy Mario on a 50" tv)
    But where as every one remebers the good games
    Nobody remembers the shite thats out on it (do we realy need the C64 versions of out run, final fight and operation wolf ?)

    But as I have said OVER 9000!!!!! times -

    Ah...the C64 days. Knew a guy who worked at a disk duplicating plant.
    I got stuff before they even hit the stores and without the annoying head banging of the drive (when they put in copy protection).
    I had thousands of c-64 stuff. Too bad a glut of the same type games and the NES facilitated its downfall.
    Airborn Ranger was good, so was Raid on Bungeling Bay. Even Pogo Joe!!!
    BTW, you can get all these thru emulation.
    And if you aint done already, grab a 2 gig or 1 gig mem card and copy all your downloadable VC content to it. That way if you Wii takes a dump, you aint got re-dload and re-pay. Pretty damn simple.

    Lucky...
