For all those having trouble choosing between retro games, this is the thread for you! Ask for recommendations here.
if you're trying to choose between a retro game and something newer, though, the Universal Recommendations Thread may be what you're looking for. :3

I'd like to get an NES Advantage, but don't have any arcade games on my NES. I've already downloaded Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, and Pac Man. I obviously don't want anything I can get for 500 points on the Wii.

I have a NES Advantage but I've never used it.
What's a good game to use it with? I considered The Guardian Legend but haven't tried it yet.

Should I get Kirby's Adventure, or wait til Super Star comes out?

Also, should I get Street Fighter 2 and Magical Quest on the GBA?

Just get Kirby's Adventure, man. No matter how good Super Star is, it ain't worth passing up a gem like that.

Next time I have the points for it, I'll pick up Kirby's Adventure. I've played the demo, and it looks pretty cool.

Those who can't get the GBA version of Yoshi's Island should pick up the DS version. It's a perfect update.

Superstar is overrated.

Truthfully its my least favourite Kirby game that I've beaten, since the traditional story part isn't as focused. Then there are pointless/stupid modes that aren't any fun, like the Arena.

(I played the DS version BTW)

I just reconsidered Kirby's Adventure, and I've decided that I'll wait for Super Star. Kirby's Adventure is visually unimpressive in my opinion.

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEE

You're kidding right? Really?! That's the reason? Seriously?!?! Not impressive copared to what? A SNES game? Because I can't think of a single NES game that looked better tham Kirby's Adventure. Besides, why is that even an issue? You really intend on missing out on a great game just based on the looks? Then why are you even bother with the VC/SNES? Just get the dumbed-down remakes if all you care about is how "visually impressive" they are.

I'm terribly sorry. :( I've realized that I'm only a mild fan of the Kirby series, and have no interest in getting another game. Considering Kirby's Adventure a third time, I'd probably get it if I had more interest.

...That is late NES grapgics. What were you looking at outta curiosity? As in what video/screenshots/excetera, just to verify. Like I said, it doesn't get much better on the NES than in Kirby's Adventure.

I was actually going on the demo, which is actually decent, but doesn't appeal to me for some reason.

By the way, Dream Land 3 actually looks nice.

Kirby's Adventure is really good, and one of the most visually impressive NES games I own (Along with SMB3 and Monopoly) Don't be skeptical, get it.

I personally don't go for virtual console often, I'd rather own the cartridge since luckily a local game store sells NES SNES and N64 games. I only get virtual console if it's a rare game or the cartridge is too rich for my blood (example: earthbound, $50-85!!)

And for anyone looking for a good SNES game or a good SNES RPG I say get Sim Ant if you don't own Super Mario RPG. Don't be skeptical about that either. once it comes out on the VC get it or just get the cartridge on eBay or something.

Kirby's Dream Land 3 isn't supposed to be as good as Kirby's adventure so save yourself 300 points
