RevolverLink, why would you infer it's the worst Mario platformer?

Tasuki, I really do enjoy challenging platformers like the NES Megaman titles. Would you say it's worth it's import value, or would I be better off purchasing, "Super Mario World," for the additional 200 points?

Me personally, would recommend Super Mario World. It's not near as difficult as Lost Levels (which can be a good or a bad thing), but it's not necessarily super easy either. Plus, it adds Yoshi to the mix. It's one of my favorite old games ever

I know they're completely different types of games, but should I get Kid Icarus or StarTropics? I can't decide.

Joshers744, how well do you think, "Super Mario World," would control with a GameCube controller? Because I don't own a Classic Controller.

@G4L: For Super Mario World I will say if you can get the classic controller pro, the GC controller is horrible for playing SNES games with. As for Super Mario Bros the Lost Levels unless you can find the Super Mario Anniversary collection for the Wii than yes its worth the points, but than again either the VC or the Anniversary collection is the only way you can get that game on the Wii.

Thank you, Tasuki. At the moment, I don't actually have the funds for a Classic Controller. So I'd most likely choose, "Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels".

On another note, would, "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past," control sufficiently utilizing the GameCube controller?

@G4L: Honestly I cant really say on how SNES games work with a Gamecube controller since I bought a classic controller at the same time I bought my Wii since it is very similar to the shape of a SNES controller and that's what I grew up with. However I have heard from alot of people that the SNES games are hard to control with the Gamecube controller. Now N64 games on the other hand play pretty well with a GC contoller.

All I can really suggest is download the game and see how you like it with a Gamecube controller. Even if you find it hard to play with the GC controller you still have the game downloaded when you finally do buy a classic controller

That's very true @Tasuki. I just hope we're all able to transfer our VC and WiiWare content onto the WiiU. It would be a complete shame if these classic games were to disappear into the past once again. Because our Wii consoles won't function forever, and I would really appreciate it if I was able to hold onto my VC collection.

Well, I have to think of 5 SNES games. To average out two 20 points cards. So that might be the 5th game.

Edit : I noticed you have a link to your Backloggery, how do you get it in your signature to say the words "My Backlog" as the link?

Now that I've seen Kid Icarus beyond the upward scrolling first few stages, it actually looks good. Should I get the NES version now or wait for the 3D remake?

The gamecube control is perfect for the N64 games (button layout) and the Turbografx-16 games (the turbo buttons have better order).

I hope someday the Wii U could have some kind of gamecube controller conected to the wiimote because the classic controller is the worst option when you play a VC N64 game.

The NES version of Kid Icarus is one of my favorite NES games so I would recommend that. But then again, I always prefer the classic original over the glitzy remake.

Is, "Vectorman," any good guys? I really enjoyed Metroid, and I recently downloaded, "Super Metroid," as well. Which for me, just screams, "Nintendo!" This is also the case with, "Vectorman". For me, it just screams, "Sega!"

I doubt it since you cant even use a Gamecube controller on the new Wiis now.

So with some of the Turbographix games being removed I was thinking of downloading some before they are gone. But back when that was around had a Super Nintendo and a Genesis but no Turbographix. So I was wondering what games are worth downloading for that system? I've p[lays Bonk before which is great and I just downloaded R-Type last night, what else is good?

@paburrows : I've only bought three TG16 games for the VC, but I've enjoyed them all to varying degrees.

Bomberman '93 - It's Bomberman. And if you've somehow never played a Bomberman game before, you're probably just better off getting '94.
Neutopia - A shameless rip-off of the original Zelda, but there are worse games to steal from.
Ys Book I & II - A great action RPG that's more than the sum of its individual parts.

So I need opinions, I'm currently buying NES games.

I need a 4th game to flatten out my $20 back to zero.

Metroid or Kid Icarus?
