Get some new stuff.

Beyond Oasis
Star Tropics
The Legend of The Mystical Ninja

what's that stuff supposed to be about.
Star tropics seems nice...

Get Super Metroid and Sin and Punishment. They're easily the best titles on the VC, and probably the best titles of their respective systems.

I'd also recommend:
Ninja Spirit (awesome and hard old-school ninja action)
Ocarina of Time (duh)
Mario Kart 64 (if you have four Gamecube controllers)
Alien Soldier (hard, surreal, and awesome)
Starfox 64 (in case you ever tire of Sin and Punishment, which you won't)
Doctor Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine/Kirby's Avalanche (the best two-player puzzler ever)

This is the correct answer, and will remain the correct answer until Earthbound comes out.

Baseballstars 2 is going to be on the ps2 neo-geo collection volume 1.
I would say alien soldier is a must. I also really enjoy the donkey kong country series. I would have bought punchout if I didn' t already own it.
Sin and Punishment is another one you shouldn't pass up.
The next games I am going to get are star tropics and super contra.

Sin & Punishment is a good purchase, considering it's currently the most expensive. It's well worth it. Really. Plus buying it supports the game and we just might get a new game made for the Wii.. Right? RIGHT?!?

Air Zonk is a good time, not so much for Super Air Zonk. All 3 Bonk's are a good time. Anything Mario.. Super Metroid....Um. There's a lot of really good games. I'm sorry :-(

Thanks for the suggestions also....I have yet to buy a VC game yet. I have 2000 points, and just got 4000 more via the Dell $25 coupon fiasco.

I was thinking of getting some Super Nintendo games or N64 games since I never owned either.
How is Splatterhouse for the T16? I never played any T16 games at all....or Neo Geo really. Baseball Stars may be mine as I'm a sports fan.

Splatterhouse is alright. Not much on gameplay but heavy on style. Ninja Spirit's a better purchase if you want a TG-16 game.

Paper Mario was the best 10 dollars I've spent in a while.

Kirby's Dream Course is one of the best games nobody's ever played. Absolutely shocked that it hasn't been mentioned yet.

Paper Mario is awesome.

I bought Sin & Punishment but it's basically unplayable with the Wavebird (requires D-pad). Time to buy a classic controller...

Yeah, forgot to mention that. However, even with the 20 bucks for the CC, it's still easily worth it at 32 dollars for one of the best gaming experiences ever.

What is Sin & Punishment about? What type of game is it?

Imagine Neon Genesis Evangalion, only with terrible voice-acting.
Now imagine that you have a gun and shoot everything that moves.
Now imagine that it is glorious.
That's what Sin & Punishment is.

Real answer: It's an on-rails shooter by Treasure (creators of Gunstar Heroes, Ikaruga, etc) about a a couple rebelling against a fascist regime and their god-like pal. It's absolutely insane in the most positive way.

My suggestions --
Pokemon Snap (N64)
Act Raiser (SNES)
SMB 3 (NES)
Kid Icarus (NES)

If you liked Metroid Prime 3 then check out Super Metroid, I personally recommend Sin & Punishment and Alien Soldier.

Mmm just watched some Sin and punishment videos. DLing ASAP.
Was that a Japanese only release orginally?

Yep, that's why it costs 200 points more since it's an import title.

seems like repeated reccomendations are:

-Sin and Punishment
-Alien Soldier
-Paper mario(have not finished PMTTYD. Haven't played for 4 months)
-Supe Metroid

Im also thinking about:
SMW
SM64
SF64
Kid Icarus
Lost Levels

This is going to take me alot of wii points cards to buy...

Let's be careful on overemphasizing Alien Soldier. It is for the hardcore gamer, really. If you have a friend, consider Gunstar Heroes for the same gameplay and co-op instead.

But if you're not willing to bear the frustration, then you may want to avoid both!

Is Sin and Punishment frustrating as well?

I hear Treasure and I immediately think Old School Hardcore Shooter.

It has an easy mode that seems plenty accessible. The controls have a bit of a learning curve, but otherwise, its frequent checkpoints are beginner friendly.

You know, Nights is a great game. I think a lot of people dogged it because of what they heard, and never tried it.

I enjoyed the hell out of it.

I beat it, and loved it.

But now no more heroes is where its at..

AND IM PICKING UP ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS FOR 19.99 TODAY! WOO!

Girlfriend wants it, shes been wanting it since it came out. and its 19.99 now.

So price match at CC, 49.99-33.00=16.99=18.xx :)

She wants to play it.

Crotch I had a chance to play CHICKEN LITTLE : ACE IN ACTION.

40 percent

Controls are GOD AWFUL, and its hella short.. very disappointing.. i loved the chicken little movie.. and this was.. words cant describe the horror it was.

Just for you, I add Chicken Little and Alvin. In the kids' section. Does either game have multiplayer?

Nice signature, though.

Alvin is 2 players offline, no online.

Chicken Little ace in action is 2 players as well, I dont think its online tho.

Also.. battallion wars is in the A column for some reason..
