Feature: The Neo Geo Shooters We Need On Virtual Console

The Neo Geo Shooters We Need On Virtual Console

Come on SNK! Less fighting, more shooting!

While it's fairly common knowledge that the Neo Geo system sported a rather sizable library of fighting titles, many people don't realise that the system also featured an extremely impressive assortment of shoot 'em up releases as well. In fact, several of these games rank as some of the best shooters of all time among avid fans of the genre. So why is it..

What Neo Geo games do you want to see on the Virtual Console?

It's time to let D4 Enterprises know what games you want to see on the Virtual Console serivce.

The Neo Geo was the Ferrari of video game consoles back when it was first released in 1990 and its sky high $600 price tag put it out of reach of the majority of game fans. But it also represented the first time actual arcade hardware was made available in a home console format. It didn't exactly help..

It's time to let Nintendo know what games you want to see on the Virtual Console.

The Virtual Console release schedule has tapered off quite a bit lately, but we can't help but think that there are still quite a few games that could and should see a release on the service at some point. Nintendo's become one of the most popular game developers in...

Now that the rate of Virtual Console releases has slowed from a flood to a trickle, it is understandable that many VC gamers have given up hope of playing their favourite Capcom games in the comfort of their living room on the Wii with a Classic Controller.

Ten Games We'd Like To See On The Virtual Console In 2009

We've already experienced two years worth of Virtual Console goodness since the launch of the Nintendo Wii console back in November of 2006 and despite some reservations about what 2009 will bring as far as Virtual Console support goes, we're trying quite hard to remain optimistic that this year will be another strong year for the service.

We've seen many of the bigger hits for each of the consoles..

Top 10 Racing Games We Want To Come To The Virtual Console

Racing or driving games are sorely underrepresented on the Virtual Console. Why is that we ask? They’ve always been popular with gamers since Pole Position on the Atari 2600. In the vain hope that powers that be at Nintendo ever visit this site for inspiration, here are the driving games which we feel deserve consideration for the Virtual Console.

Top 10 Puzzlers We Want To Come To The Virtual Console

Following the series of Top 10 lists we've already done, we've made a selection of puzzle games we would like to see! It should be noted that there's a bunch of great puzzlers already on VC - The likes of Puyo Puyo, Adventures of Lolo, Wrecking Crew, Solomon's Key and Pokémon Puzzle League are all top-notch and very much worth a purchase. Still, here's 10 that would make great additions as well.

Top 10 Shmups We Want To Come To The Virtual Console

Since I've been fortunate enough to witness all of the shooter love in the comments lately, I thought I'd take a moment to share the love with a new top ten list chock full of shoot 'em ups. Although there have already been quite a few outstanding shooters released on the Virtual Console, there are still a lot of great titles left between the various consoles. Today we'll take a look at ten of the best. No need to thank me, just enjoy the list. :P

Top 10 Neo Geo Games We Want To Come To The Virtual Console

The Neo Geo console was a lot like a Rolls-Royce.

It wasn't necessarily that much better than the other consoles on the market at the time, it was just a hell of a lot more expensive. Not only that, but if you managed to somehow survive the $650 price tag the console hit you with, you'd still have to shell out another $200-$300 per game if you...

RPG Titles Dominate Nintendo Power’s Most Wanted List

As we reported a while back, respected US magazine Nintendo Power recently asked Virtual Console fans to submit which games they would like to see on the service in the hope that it would make the Big N sit up and take notice. The results are now in and (unsurprisingly) SNES RPGs dominate.

Here’s the reader’s top 5 most wanted: Earthbound (Super NES) Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars..

Top 10 RPGs We Want To Come To The Virtual Console

Role-playing games have always been extremely popular in Japan, but over the years they've become quite popular in other parts of the world as well. There's just something amazing about getting to take part in an epic story line and watching as it all unfolds in front of you. I personally own over 130 role-playing games at last count, so I decided to take a moment to put together a list of the top 10 role-playing games I'd most like to see released on the Virtual Console.

Will Sega CD Support Ever Come To The Virtual Console?

Since the very welcome introduction of TG-16 CD-ROM games to Nintendo’s Virtual Console service we’ve seen a steady flow of requests for the same treatment to be given to Sega’s ill-fated Sega CD add-on (also known as the Mega CD in Europe and Japan).

This much-hyped peripheral was rolled out in the early ‘90s (a few years after Hudson/NEC...

Top 10 shmups we want to come to the Virtual Console

Every good retro gamer enjoys a good shmup (shoot-em-ups to the uninitiated). During the late 80s and early 90s almost every other game was a shmup. They were very much the FPS of the day! The gaming history books are littered with many failures and uninspired clones but we'll cut through the crap and bring you the cream of the crop that we one day hope to see on the Virtual Console.

Top Five Most Wanted Virtual Console Games

Now that the Virtual Console Archive has a commenting facility we thought what better time to ask what are the games you would most like to see on the Virtual Console. The catch is you can only pick ONE game per format and you have to give a brief reason why this should be released before any other games.
