Those games won't be on their servers forever, you know.

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

No, it isn't. If you lose your system or get it stolen, it's all gone. If your system crashes or your hard-drive dies, it's all gone. You need to spend hundreds of moola on your games all over again, or accept that it's all gone.

You need your purchases tied to your account, so if you ever need to replace your system, you can just log in to your Nintendo Network account and re-download them from whatever tab keeps track of your purchased games.

Let us not judge a man by the colour of his skin, but by the character he chooses to battle with in Brawl.

I am also in my 30's on the backside, however, and I do love the old systems. I revisit from time to time, but I imagine the Wii will be the golden age for my kids. I think it just comes with the times. As for the physical copy, I do love holding the box, disc, cartridge, or booklet in my hands. Again, that probably has something to do with age.

I think the GCN generation was pretty good but maybe Im just being bias since it was my first console and all. :D

The only time I lost my barcode was on my DS Lite, which didn't have digital downlaods

I don't know about you, but I don't know anybody who keeps the boxes after they decide they want to keep something. You'd have to write it down somewhere, and that would require knowing about the fact that you need it in the first place. That free service isn't exactly well advertised, unfortunately.

Which means nothing if it's stolen.

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.

I like going physical too, but the NES is an exception. VC doesn't just save you space, time, and money, it saves you the headache of dealing with the NES carts and hardware.

Once you clean the dirt off of the inner area the carts works like a charm bud!

Exactly. NES was high maintenance. You won't have to hold in the reset button while you press power either. You're free of all that nonsense when emulating on the VC.

Too bad the NES VC emulations are piss poor in the brightness and color department(especially if you're using composite) The colors are completely washed out, nasty and dark. You basically have to max out the color on your TV set to make them look decent, or close enough to how they were on the NES. Otherwise, they look awful.

I keep the boxes. Anyways tie your system to your Club Nintendo account. If you accidently break or loose a physical game there's no way your going to get a replacement on that ever. I had a friend who's Wii got stolen. Nintendo offered to sell him a Wii directly from them but at 75 dollars but he got back all of his downloads. They did something with the other Wii's Serial Number but I am not sure what. Something about using the internet or something. Everything he had downloaded was on his Club Nintendo account.

Yeah $75 isn't bad if you have over 75 VC downloads :D and it'll be even better with WiiU if you have a lot of WiiU games downloaded

He had around the same amount of VC I had. Which was pretty much every first party NES, SNES, N64 and some good games on all the other systems.

I honestly do not know what you are talking about. My vc nes downloads look just as good as my actual nes games..
