The way you phrase this comment only makes you come across as very spoiled and entiteled.
Your comment shows you not only have no argument but also no standards or integrity if you think we should just blindly and happily buy things without a care for their quality. Are you being paid by Nintendo, otherwise why are you shilling? People criticizing and wanting Nintendo to do better is only to your benefit.
Yes, these are 25+ year old games, and yet many of them are still in high demand, whether you like them or not. There are plenty of people who look forward to play these games, even though I will say again that this february update is shallow indeed. Of course your opinion about them is fine, no doubt, but it's not applicable to others. Like I said myself in the op, I look forward to Shadow of the Ninja.
Also, what harm has the drip feeding done? You lost me here.
Oops I needed to make my point more clear. I brought up their age as a counterpoint to your skyhigh expectations comment. It's not like these old games take any real effort or resources on Nintendo's part to put out. You're right they're in high demand, which only boggles the mind further why Nintendo didn't make the effort to make them all available. They're just leaving free easy money on the table.
You've already acknowledged some of what it's done, the frustration and disappointment on consumers end, but it also hurts Nintendo. They would undoubtedly have a lot more subscribers than they do now if the games were all there.
