I was looking at the VC list on the Wii and honestly I wasnt entirely amazed at what they charge for some of their rather "B class" titles.
Some games can be justified with the price they charge, like Zelda or Solomon's Key but the I wouldnt want to spend $5+ on most of these ancient games with no real hardcopy of anything, especially if you can probably pick them up for uber cheap at a pawnshop or garage sale. They may be 'Classics' but they're rather pathetic in terms of gameplay from today's standard. I would be disappointed to find out that I payed 5$ for a 3 minute donkey kong game, crappy sports games on NES or repetitive same stage games like galaga ice climber or mario bros. These titles should be around $2 IMO.
I just get the impression that Nintendo is trying to milk more than necessary $$$ from adult users with nostalgic memories and younger kids trying out the popular classic titles using their long gone old library. I was kinda shocked to find out they even charge $5 for Super Mario Bros. IMO they should have gave it a free download for the user to experience VC and *the* classic super mario...
What do you think? or am I just being too cheap?
crappy old school NES games are more entertaining than next-gen games.
