    VC Vs. Emulators

    Speaking NES/SNES strictly, what is the difference between VC and the emulators... With the emulators we can use extra filters that improve graphics... has VC had any graphical improvements? Does VC add anything new really? I want to start some of my old games like Secret of Mana, but I can't decide between VC and SNES9x GX... Has anyone tried both?

    Emulator are better, you can cheat, tweak the graphics and use controller of your choice. VC, you can't do anything and you need to buy the classic controller for all the games I have tried. It is possible for some to cheat by loading the channel with gecko, but not for me and others with newer wii's.

    I find emus are surprisingly better for all games that are from the 16-bit generation or less. With emulators you can set the screen ratio, while w/ VC I'm always having to convert my hdtv signal to 4:3 to play all those retro games. Plus you can make a save anywhere in a game, which helps if you like games like R-type and salamander. And lastly, you can configure your wiimote to do the job of an snes pad.
