I haven't played it since Christmas because of all my schoolwork, and I just checked out the virtual console and there have been some AWESOME games released!

I have a 30 dollar giftcard to Gamestop that I can spend, I thought about picking up a classic controller and getting a 10 dollar Wii Points card to download more games, I really don't feel like spending too much money of my own. Any suggestions? All I have is Zelda and everything that came with my Wii...so I'm not ready to pick up another Wii Remote since the only multiplayer game I have is Wii Sports and we only play bowling which you can use one Remote...any suggestions?

...You almost had me iRye...but I think I will pass on that, but I must say I definately think I will be getting a classic controller (or 2) because I love to play old SNES games with my roomate who doesn't play too many new generation games besides baseball ones. He loves the old SNES though.

i like need for speed carbon, i think it is fun.

also, red steel is okay. the mechanics are wonderful but you can only do so much stuff with FPS after halo.

I haven't begun to tap into the wonderfulness of downloading old-school games, though I will soon...maybe. I already have a sega genesis, n64, and snes.

Super Paper Mario comes out on Monday. Check out some of the videos on Youtube, it looks really fun. Or if you just want some Virtual Console games, the Zelda Games and Super Mario World are always great. Starfox 64 came out last week and I've been meaning to get it.

Consider yourself lucky to have a Wii. *grumbles and kicks Coke can down a dark sidewalk in downtown Tokyo*
