Ok, here's a question: Dragon's Trap (TG-16) or Faxanadu (NES)?
If I understand correctly, they're both action RPG's. After DL'ing MWIV (which is awesome, by the way!), I have 600 points on my account. Which should I get?

@Qwikman_N_Bass, I haven't experienced either of those two games yet, but I have an inkling you should download Dragon's Trap.

Faxanadu is one of the best NES games on the VC. I sometimes see gamers compare it to the Adventure of Link, but Faxanadu is better. It's cool how equipping new armor changes your character's appearance and the music is great stuff. I don't think you'll like it as much as MWIV though. It's not as colorful, the platforming is a lot simpler and less forgiving, it has a password system instead of game saves, and I wouldn't say it has much in the way of puzzles-not like MW IV anyway. Fax also has a laughably bad translation, but I dig old stuff like that. Faxanadu's game length is about the same as MW IV BTW.

I found both games hard to play after Monster World IV. The platforming is a little loose in both games. I'd give the edge to Dragon's Curse because of the save system and the monster transformations, but you'll be good-but-not-great with either.

I've got 800 Wii points. I'm trying to decide between;

Mega Man X
Breath of Fire II
Actraiser

If it was up to you, which one game would you download?

...in my pants.

Mega Man, but then again, I've bought that game 3 times already. If you have it in some form or another already, then I suggest treating yourself to something different and get Actraiser. It's not perfect like MMX, but it's still good fun.

Breath of Fire 2 is a good choice too, but only if you love charming RPGs and don't mind generic gameplay with some grinding. It's actually one of my top 20 favorite RPGs, but I still find it hard to recommend, and I'm starting to like Breath of Fire 1 more.

BTW, did you ever choose between Axelay or Gate of Thunder? Because I'm interested to see what you say about either game.

I have Mega Man 10 and Mega Men X Zero Collection already, so maybe I should go for something else. Actraiser's awesome but I played it to death back in the day, it might not be worth it for me. I've only gotten half way through BoF2 before--maybe I should finally finish it on the VC. That's what I did with Phantasy Star IV.

I did play one stage of Axelay at a friend's house and didn't care for it much either, but maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance. I should probably go for Gate of Thunder but maybe I'll just wait to decide a little longer, in case Pulstar makes it's way to NA.

I have 800 Wii points sitting around so I was considering downloading Super Castlevania IV. It's supposed to be one of the best Castlevanias, right? I wanted to get Fluidity but I don't feel like dropping ten more dollars just to have enough points for it.

Good lord. Get on SCIV pronto, it's such a masterpiece...And also 'Klonoa' if you read my reply in the 'What Wii games are you still missing thread'
Then again, i need to get on Zelda ALTTP and Super Metroid for the millionth time. Those 2 should be mandatory for any gamer. But the next title I'm diving into will be Super Mario 3D Land. Late again. eek!

I'd go Paper Mario over NES Final Fantasy, but the N64 Paper Mario really isn't half as good as Paper Mario: the Thousand Year Door on the GameCube.

Would a Contra kid such as myself go 'ga ga'(no, not the phony arrogant singing creature who completely pales in comparison to Grace jones and old school Madonna) over the Genny super styaliZed GunStar Heroes? I still can't believe i haven't gotten around to play it yet since it was basically released on the Wii's VC during it's fist year. Ah who am i kidding, I'm dieing to download this sucker, even more so than Metal Slug 3.

Super Castlevania IV is one my favorite if not the favorite games of all time! It is probably the "easiest Castlevania" though which is not saying taht is an easy game but the 8 directional whip helps tremendously for Castlevania. The soundtrack is of the charts too.

Let me know how that is. I have the Metal Slug Collection but haven't really played it much. I want to beat Contra III first I think before I start up on another Run N' Gun series.
