I was the Nintendo fan, and my cousin (only a month younger than I) was the Sega fan. Lots of good Nintendo memories, and right up there were the ones with Sonic on the Genesis. Quite fun!

I'm loving the work Nintendo is doing to add some variety to this already amazing franchise. The work done in the recent 3DS LBW game was fresh and varied, and made for a fantastic game. They already showed us the 'open world' in Zelda Wii U, and I can only hope that's just the beginning to some more new features in the game. I love the old tried and true (heck, my favorite game of all time is the NES LoZ) but I'm also a big fan of what they may be doing now. Way to go!

I will purchase a few of these, but mainly to collect. The images I've seen so far show a high level of detail, and they'll look great on my wall of collectibles. Since I'll most likely purchase some of the games that these'll work with, I may try out that aspect, but I don't see it being the deciding factor that pushes me to buy more.

I also agree with TruenoGT. I too am a digital fan. I've lost too many games, or had scratched discs that were unplayable. If I have a choice, I opt for the digital version, but many don't so it's nice to see them have the option for the physical discs.

Die-hard Zelda fan from the NES days. At first, this game just didn't entice me. I felt bad to admit that, but it was true. But seeing this game take shape over the last few months, and now seeing these absolutely beautiful locales, I'm certainly coming around and may end up getting this on day 1.

@Garuu-Popka That reward would have been awesome! I too am disappointed at these choices. Don't get me wrong, a free gift is a free gift, but it feels like a let-down from the past offerings. Not to mention, I have most of these, which is how I got to be Platinum this year! Seems silly to have these be the only options. I guess there's always next year...

I'm an adult, and I am excited to collect these. They're not for everyone, clearly, but having been a youth in the mid-80s, I grew up on these items and when I can't be playing a game (which is more often than not!) it's fun to see the collectibles in my den. I have a great framed poster of Earthbound and another of all the Zelda weapons and items right above my computer. Again, not for everyone, but for those like me this move by Nintendo could be quite intriguing!
