    Lode Runner® (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): This landmark action-puzzle game has been a worldwide fixture in video games from the moment of its inception until today, producing many sequels and related products along the way. The player controls the hero, or "Runner," who collects gold nuggets located around every stage, all the while avoiding capture by enemy robots. The action itself is simple, but the stages are designed as increasingly challenging puzzles, and none of the 50 stages is as easy as it seems. The Runner avoids enemies by digging holes in the floor to the right and left of his position—by doing this, he can clear a path to places that, at first glance, seem unreachable. Players must use their brains to collect all the gold nuggets in every puzzling stage if they want to escape to the next. In addition to normal play, this version of the game features an Edit Mode that allows players to design their own stages, adding a new level of enjoyment to the game.

    Sonic the Hedgehog™ 2 (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): Dr. Eggman (aka Dr. Robotnik) is back to continue his zealous search for the Chaos Emeralds needed to fuel his new Death Egg contraption. The evil doctor secretly follows Sonic to his vacation spot, Westside Island, and launches a full-scale attack, imprisoning all the helpless animals of the island and turning them into mindless worker drones. Now Sonic must thwart the doctor's plans at all costs. This time he isn't alone, as a peculiar two-tailed fox named Miles Prower (aka Tails) decides to aid him in the battle. Together they must locate the Chaos Emeralds before Dr. Eggman does, and put an end to his diabolical scheme.

    Golden Axe™ II (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older – Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): Not long after the devastating reign of the wicked Death Adder, another evil arose. Dark Guld and his minions invaded and took hold of the prized Golden Axe with plans to destroy it. Once again, as a fierce barbarian named Ax-Battler, a fearless female Amazon known as Tyris-Flare or a ferocious dwarf named Gilius Thunderhead, you will wield steely swords and powerful magic in an all-out war to recover the sword. Once you slash your way through the six side-scrolling levels, you'll get the chance to defeat Dark Guld once and for all.

    It's probably cheaper to get the Sonic Mega Collection for Gamecube instead of buying each Sonic game on the VC.

    Sonic 2 ,and Golden Axe 2 are some of the best of their series. Could of done without Lode Runner. My question is where the hell is Vectorman...UK had it for months now where is the US version.

    I wish they had a Commodore 64 VC. Then getting the real Lode Runner (amongst many of the other games for C64) would have been cool. At first when I saw Lode Runner I thought, "Woo Hoo!," but after searching for screen shots of the NES Lode Runner today I remembered why I passed on it the first time almost 20 years ago. It's got these goofy cartoony graphics instead of straight Lode Runner (stickmen, ladders, bricks, straight ropes - real simple).

    It'd also be nice if they had a Nintendo Arcade VC for the real arcade versions of Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Mario Bros., etc.

    Still, it's pretty nice to be able to pick up some NES/SNES/Genesis/TG16/N64 games.

    *wakes up from loud beeping noises from the computer*, uh what? I just fell asleep after reading the list of games that came out for VC, it's been 2 1/2 months since starfox and there hasn't been an N64 game since, is that all the N64 games they are releasing? If so, I have made a big mistake in getting the Wii, if they skip a month, no problem, but it's already the second week in the third month, they should put every game for all the other consoles aside an work on a couple N64 games

    The original game was really good. I don't know, gameplay-wise, how good the NES version is. The graphics are goofy compared to the original.
