Seriously. I just discovered how easy and cheap it is a month or so ago, and it's great. I've wanted to play some older Mario games for a while, just to be able to say I had. So I bought 2,000 Wii points and got myself Super Mario 64. Wow. I only really got into gaming with the Wii, and had a few Gamecube games, so I was expecting the earlier consoles with their polygonal graphics to be vastly inferior to, say, Mario Galaxy. But 64 is a really fun game. It's a bit tougher, which is a good thing. Here I was thinking that Galaxy was so cool for having triple-jumps and wall jumps when 64 had actually had them as well. Of course, modern games are a lot better in some respects, like graphics and having a lot of concepts earlier consoles couldn't handle, but I don't really care about that as long as the game is fun. Which Nintendo games rock at.
Then I got SMB 3. Same deal. I had really enjoyed New SMB Wii, and wanted to try out its predecessor. SMB 3 is just as fun its Wii counterpart- maybe ever more so, because the Tanooki suit is way more fun than the Helicopter suit. I haven't used a Hammer suit yet- I like to hoard my items- but I can't wait to.
The last game I got was the original Legend of Zelda, which is hard. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I looked up all the hidden power-ups and Rupee stashes on the internet. Once your get going, though, it's a good game. It's also the only Zelda game I've ever played (again, kind of ashamed to admit it) so once I finish the first quest I want to buy Ocarina of Time.
I'm not sure about that, though. What VC games should I get now? I'm considering Ocarina of Time and Paper Mario, but I don't want to spend too much Lego money on VC, at least until after BrickFair.
