5 Games that NEED to be on Virtual Console

Postby mandlecreed » 26 Nov 2010, 17:50

Owning 4 of those (all but Strider) I'll agree with all but Cool Spot. I didn't like it that much. Replace it with Plok and you have yourself a deal.

5 Games that NEED to be on Virtual Console

Postby Violet » 26 Nov 2010, 17:59

There's going to be a billion requests for EarthBound, so lets ignore the obvious ones for a moment.

I agree with Lost Vikings and Strider, although aren't really bothered by any of your other suggestions.

Rygar is a game that should be on there. A great little NES game that plays a little like Zelda II or Shantae.

There are numerous games that were never released outside of Japan that deserve the Sin & Punishment treatment, such as Seiken Densetsu III (Secret of Mana II) and Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu. Sadly it doesn't look like this will happen.

Finally, what about Final Fantasy III? That is, Final Fantasy VI. Its easily the best of the series now and forever.

If Seiken Densetsu 3 came out on VC I'd probably squeal a bit.

In fact, Square Enix need to go on a translation rampage and give us Westerners all their RPGs that never made it out of Japan.

YAY COOLSPOT! I loved that game, everything about it was brilliant.

As for other non VC games, how bout we get Yoshi's Island on there? Unless I'm a total retard, I can't find it on the Virtual Console, what's that about?!

Earthbound! Earthbound! A million times Earthbound! That is the number one game I want to see on Virtual Console. I know that it isn't happening (Well I think anyway) but I would give away all the virtual console and WiiWare games I have (Except Mario RPG) for it!

Earthbound!

Also, the N64 Goemon games. I would also like to see Konami make some Goemon games for the 3DS.

OMG Cool Spot! I love that game, completely forgot about it too. I'm tempted to get out my Mega Drive and start playing it.

I so want Yoshi's Island though.

Yoshi's Island is likely to appear on the 3DS as part of a 3D Virtual Console. They've shown demos of this in action and Yoshi's Island was one of the games being shown. It makes sense.

Starwing also needs to be on the VC, but I would buy a 3D version on the 3DS in an instant.

Earthbound, DK64, Sonic CD and Metal Gear lost to these?
I'd rather have these games as I've never heard of the one's Gav picked, to be honest.
Games wishlist- Zelda skyward sword, 3DS.
