imo, The Golden Age of gaming ended with the SNES and in ways was kind of rejuvinated with the Wii. Aside from the Glorious & amazing Virtual Console.
We experienced a retro 2D revival with games like Mega Man 9 & 10, Castlevania ReBirth, Contra ReBirth, NSMBWii, Klonoa, A Boy & his Blob, Wario Land Shake it!, Donkey Kong Country Returns ect ect. The feeling at times that i got from playing the wii was a feeling i had not felt since the SNES. B-)

Plus, flipping the wii remote on it's Side 'NES controller style' is just too cool.

I have to agree. Nothing compares to playing the classics in their original form.

80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Except when your Cart dies, I can back up my DL title, but I'd have to rebuy my physical title

A Virtual console, is better than no virtual console and it gives gamers who don't own any of the classic consoles a chance to experience a wide selection of games they never had the privilage to play. But I agree, nothing compares to playing these games on the original systems.
But it's still awesome to have considering some carts are quite expensive....Then again, that rarely ever stops me from making the purchase. :p Mega Man 7 on Cart goes for around $100. Whenever it's released on the VC, it will be $8. Plus you get to play it through a component connection, same deal with NES games and everything else which makes these games look better plain and simple.

It's just nice that it's there. so boo hoo. :p

Never have had one die or any other problem with any of my 100 or so carts or "Game Paks" as they used to call them. I suppose I could change the battery but the Legend of Zelda gold cart still saves from the 80's!

Come on, you never had a problem with NES cartridges? I hated always trying to get those things to work, even back when they were new. The NES was a mess.

I should have watched my wording with Gamesake around. After a couple of tries I get my NES games to work. Harmo was referring the to the carts dieing which I have never had that problem.

MEH. Nothing beats a physical copy. Having the actual cart, inserts, manual and box for an NES/SNES game is just too awesome.
DL just feels lacking, incomplete and empty.

That's why having them tied to your system is a good thing

lol because there's nothing physical to have in person. It would of been pretty rad to have retail releases of Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth and Mega Man 9(Not counting the NES replica) on the Wii. But alas, they're reduced to downloadables. Still, the experience would be the same regardless. But for me, DL's just feel less satisfying to have in comparison to a physical copy.
