I know that the selection could be a lot better, but I have to say that theres still a lot of great titles like Shinobi, Ninja Gaiden, Golden axe and others. I still wish that they would do Turtles 1 & 2, X-Men, Simpsons, Stryder and some others, that mixed with the SNK, Metal Slug and Data East disc collections theres actually a lot of great stuff out there.

What VCA games have you all downloaded and enjoy?

I've downloaded Ghosts n Goblins (it looks MUCH better than the NES version), 1942 and Rygar. I like them all, especially Ghosts n Goblins. This is the VC that I'm most excited about regarding its possibilities. There are a TON of games that could be released for the VC Arcade, games going all the way back to the 70s. It's an untapped gold mine. Hopefully more companies will support it in the future as there were a lot of good games that only got released in the arcades, plus arcade games that have much better graphics than their console iterations. Nintendo should lead the way and release arcade versions of some of their games. More than 30 years later, Nintendo has still never released a complete port of the original arcade Donkey Kong.

the thing is, the virtual arcade has given the publishers the oppertunity to put out some of their best games, and the amount of games that could be made available is just as comparable to all the other consoles on the VC combined.but it`s not quite that easy. each publisher has their own arcade boards to emulate, which they need to get their games to work on the VC. and each publisher has several different arcade boards for each era of their games too.each arcade board that`s used is essentially like a different games console, and every company has their own with many variations and newer versions of each board.basicly each publisher has to really consider the pro`s and con`s on whether or not to emulate someting with all of the other problems the that the VC has. and as much as i hate to say it, unless something drastic is done to help improve sales, i can`t see there being much in the way of any games coming out onto the virtual arcade anytime soon.
i`ve been a slave from the cradle to the grave.

I've not downloaded anything from the VCA. I either have a game on a collection already or I just don't care.

I've enjoyed Space Harrier and Golden Axe from the VC Arcade.
Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.
Prof. Oak: It's only Chansey if Krabby won't let go. Bye, now.
Ash: I don't think I'm going to call him anymore.

Rygar is OK. I'd guess you'd call it average. Nothing terrible but nothing that makes it stand out either. It's a basic sidescroller with little variety in levels and enemies. I downloaded it because I really liked the NES version back in the day and wanted to see what the arcade version was like.

Solomon's Key all the way. If I hadn't dl'd the NES version earlier I would go for the arcade game. (It's only 500pts)

I have Shinobi and Rygar.
Shinobi is a game that i loved to play in my childhood.
Rygar is one of my favorites. It has a lot of replay value. The high difficult make it a great challenge for high scores because if you continue your game you lose your score. So it has a lot of challenge. NL ave it a 6, but it deserves an 8 or 9.
I´m thinking to download Ninja Gaiden, but i don´t know if it is a good game. Same for Zaxxon and another games.
Please, recommend the games you like most. And if one game you don´t like please tell us.
Sorry about my grammar, i speak spanish.

I love Ninja Gaiden, The second half is very hard, but its a fun game. Its a little like Double Dragon with fighting unlike the NES version which is more slash and jump.
P.S. Your grammer is great.
