Much like we have WiiWare, Virtual Console, etc, I thought I'd start my own.
This thread is designed for those who are curious whether to pick up classic games, whether or not they're on the VC already.

To start, I'm considering getting a Super Game Boy with Super Mario Land. The combined price should be just under $20. Should I get them?

Super Mario Land wasnt bad a little short IMO but I did like the vehicle levels. Gameplay was similar to SMB. But yeah if you have never played it and you have a Super Nintendo to use the SUper Gameboy on than that is a good deal. See if you can also find a copy of Super Marioland 2 if you havent played that one yet.

Thanks. When I get the SGB, I'll be getting various GB games since I don't have a GBC anymore.

BTW, can the SGB play GBC games?

I am not sure on that. By the time I got Gameboy Color games I didnt have my Super Nintendo anymore so I couldnt try. The most recent game I used on the Super Gameboy was Pokeman Blue (Man that was a long time ago) and that was because my friend wanted to try Pokeman when it first came out and he didnt have a Gameboy so we played it on his Super Nintendo with the Super Gameboy. I am sure you can probably google Super Gameboy and find some forums or something that will tell you.

OK, Wikipedia says that the SGB only supports black GBC titles. The only GBC game I'm getting is Link's Awakening DX, which has a black cartridge. So I'm fine.

Yea I just read that too on Wikipedia lol. If you have a Gamecube, and can find the Gameboy player attachment that plays Gameboy, Gameboy Color, and Gameboy advanced games.

Gameboy Player is awesome. I still use it a lot. Its great for playing GB/GBC/GBA games without needing to worry about glare on the screen, or needing to squint, or find a well-lit room. The Wii needs one!

I sold my GC months ago, along with its Game Boy Player. I can play GBA games on my DS. What I'd really like is a GBA so I can have the Tingle Tuner on Wind Waker.

@mickeymac: I'd also recommend the Sega Genesis Collection for the PS2, or the new Sonic version if you can't find it.

And I already have it. It still doesn't have Ranger-X and Rocket Knight Adventures. Still a good pick for any PS2/PSP owning Genny fans, though. I'm following a few gennies on eBay, and most seem to be affordable and come with good games, so I think I'll get one after all.

Which of the DK Countries is the best on SNES?

The third game, from what I've heard. They're all pretty good, though. Unless you only plan on ever playing one, if I were you, I'd start from the bottom and work my way up.

For people who have a large collection of Gameboy and GBC games (like me), Game Boy Player is a must, I think.

Tingle Tuner on WW was a good laugh Nintendo should work something similar into Skyward Sword, for some co-op action!

@StarFox
The GBA player sees a top-down view of where Link is, can fly around, dropping bombs on enemies, indicating hidden treasure (some can only be found with the Tingle Tuner, but don't worry its all rupees and other collectibles), and maybe one or two other things they can do but I forget.
I did it with a friend a few times. Was fun watching them bombing bokoblins.
