    I am a fairly young gamer. My first console was the N64 (ahh, I can still remember opening it on christmas day and going crazy, nevermind that, though), but my sister had a snes and my cousin had a nes (all she had was duckhunt and tmnt, but tmnt was LOADS of fun...at the time), so Ive played all Nintendo consoles, its just that I didnt know much about the NES SNES or even the N64. I am asking you guys for suggestions on games that I should buy off of the VC (not necessarily games that are out right now). This is my list so far:

    Duck Hunt (if you can use wii-remote)
    Metroid
    Super Metroid
    Donkey Kong Country 3
    Yoshi's Island (maybe)
    Super Smash Bros.

    I would prefer people to shy away from the BEST games for each console, because I have checked out all of the 'top 10' lists and this is what I have comprised. I would rather you tell me games that you in particular liked, and not necessarily the rest of the fanbase. I am not going to buy many games, most likely 5-10.
    Also, the reason I dont have any Mario/Zelda games is because (1)I played Mario on the SNES for YEARS as a child, and I am absolutely sick of it. I wouldnt play a single level of mario if you payed me and (2)I tried playing the original Zelda games on my Cube Collector's Disk and I just couldn't get into the storyline. However, I do like the current Zelda's.

    Thanks a lot everyone.

    Thats a great list you've got so far. All quality games that you'll enjoy.

    As far as other games besides those, I think Street Fighter 2: The World Warrior is a great game. The best fighting game on the VC so far. Its 800 points and its a genesis game, so you'll need a GCube or VC controller to play it.

    Other personal favorites of mine:

    Mario Kart 64(even thought you said that you didnt like the most popular games from each system)

    Bomberman 93' for the TurboGrafix16. Thats 5 player, you can use the wiimote, or the GC and VC controllers, plus its only 600 points.

    I'll edit if i think of any others.
    Hope that helps,

    -Brandon

    Wait for Sonic 2 and Streets of Rage 2 or 3 for best results.
