Well I believe that the Wii VC has Final Fantasy, Fantasy II and Final Fantasy III on the VC. Just be aware that Final Fantasy II is actually FF IV and FF III is actually FF VI. But those are the best version and probably the cheapest.

On the handheld front you can get Final Fantasy Dawn of Souls which is FF and FF2 on the GBA As well as FF IV and VI on the GBA as well. Also Final Fantasy III (This is the Japanese III not the same one on the Super Nintendo or Wii VC labeled as III) was available on the DS as well.

That should get you started for now.

Final Fantasy II SNES is the Easy Type Version.

The best version is the PSP Final Fantasy IV - Complete Collection (The bit in the middle makes the After Years much less grinding as well).

Ideally the original Japanese versions retranslated would be available sadly they are not.

Super C is rubbish on the 3DS (I have the XL even) the bullets are too small. The game itself is not even that good.

Shantae or Castlevania 3. (Don't bother with the DSiware Shantae though it is totally watered down and short).

Shantae was probably the best game on the GBC. I highly recommend it.

I just recently finished this game and I agree, for $5 this game is a great choice. It's probably the closest thing any of us will get to a great 2D Zelda. It can be a little tedious going between the same areas multiple times, but worth it for the rest of this great game.

I'd also suggest Phantasy Star IV (if you're into classic JRPGs). During an era where everyone was drooling over Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, etc. this obscure gem passed through existence without making a lot of noise...but it's ABSOLUTELY one of my favorite JRPGs and worth at least looking into. Plus it's easy to find: Xbox/PS3 Sega collections, Wii Virtual console, and the original Genesis cartridge (what I originally played it on).

I still hold that the Monster World series are the best Zelda II-like games by a country mile, but Shantae's good stuff. Since Monster World isn't on 3DS VC, of course that comes recommended.

Also, I never actually played Phantasy Star IV. I always said I'd wait until I was done with Phantasy Star I-III...which in retrospect was madness, since Phantasy Star II is horrible, III is boring as hell, and as much as I hold Phantasy Star I to be the best 8-RPG ever, I actually never finished it, and I probably never will since I can't remember what I was doing and I'd probably have to start all over again, which could potentially ruin the experience.

...but I really don't want to play IV until I'm familiar with the rest of the series...

You would be better off getting Contra 4 on the DS it has both Contra and Super C and its relatively cheap.

I've never played either Twilight Princess or Skyward Sword. I'm past the halfway mark in Wind Waker HD and have found it to be a significant improvement on Ocarina of Time, so I'm curious to try my hand at some of the other 3D Zeldas. Which would people recommend? And is Twilight Princess better on the Wii or Gamecube?

The two NES Contra games on Contra 4 were highly playable. They're the reason I've still never bothered downloading Super C for my 3DS.

I preferred Twilight Princess on the Gamecube rather than the Wii. I got tired of constantly waggling my Wiimote after a while.

EDIT: And I used to hear nonstop about the supposed "poor" emulation of the NES Contras in Contra 4, but now I'm reading some reviews and most say it's spot on except for the 2-player mode.

I didn't even know Contra had a Two player mode...

Damn, now I gotta beat Contra 4 so I can save myself $50...

EDIT: Oh Who am I kidding? I'll never beat stage 4...

That's what I was afraid of. I HATE motion controls. I'll tolerate them in some games if they're done well (Super Mario Galaxy, for example), but in most games they're just a nuisance.

Yeah, the games play great. I mean, as great as they did on the NES, at least. The screen is smaller, obviously, so it is more difficult to see the bullets and whatnot. I never had any problem with it, though.

You have to complete the challenges to get all the good stuff. I couldn't resist 100%ing the game when I got it. Some of those challenges were a female dog, though. :P The pacifism challenges were the hardest. Contra levels are hard when you're already slaughtering everything in your path: can you imagine what it's like completing a level without killing anything?

How many are there out there? I have researched and cannot find anything about it. If someone could help me out with their knowledge that would be greatly appreciated

Those multi-in-one carts were usually bootlegs. It might cost a lot or absolutely nothing. Depends on whether or not the buyer is a crazy person.

Rocket Power: Beach Bandits. Now I know what you're thinking: this game sucks. Yes, it totally does, but it's absolutely one of the most hilarious games I've ever seen. If you can play this entire game without laughing, you're a soulless human being. Just look at two - count them, two! - expressions in the game. Look at how you can make them float if you jump quick enough! I would definitely pick it up in some $10 or less bargain bin to experience a day when someone thought that plot was okay to run.

Also Geist and Second Sight.
