Question about playing *all* classic games on Virtual Console.
Hi, everyone. I was browsing the list of Wii's Virtual Console games, and I was disappointed to find that there are a whole lot of games that aren't there. For example, they have for the old NES Mega Man 1 and Mega Man 2, but not Mega Man 3 or 4 or 5 or 6, and then they have Sonic The Hedgehog 1 and 3, but not Sonic 2. Anyway, it would be like an answer to my video-game prayers if the Virtual Console just simply had every game available for all of the gaming systems it has on there, but since it has a very limited selection, at least compared to the selection of ROMs you can find on the Internet, I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to take ROMs downloaded off of the Internet and get them to play on the Wii.
It seems like the Wii might be the ultimate emulator, if not for its limited selection of classic games, because unlike emulators you run off of a computer, I assume that the Wii's emulation of these games must be totally flawless, whereas with computer emulators, you sometimes run into minor glitches due to the emulator not perfectly emulating its respective console. Like I said, I *assume* that this is never a problem when playing classic games from various consoles on the Wii.
But anyway, if anyone knows of any way to take game ROMs downloaded off of the Internet and get them to play on the Wii, thereby eliminating the problem of Wii's limited selection of classic games, please let me know.
...It is a shame that Nintendo decided to not just have every single one of these games that they could get their hands on on the Wii's Virtual Console, because if they did, I wouldn't have to worry about this and I wouldn't have to feel like I'm cheating Nintendo by not paying anything for these game ROMs that I'll end up playing, but because of them not having all the games available on the Virtual Console, now I'm either gonna find a way to get them on there, or I'm gonna just invest in another computer so that I can play all those great games again, but then if I do that, the money doesn't go to Nintendo, whereas it would if they just uploaded all the games they possibly could onto the Virtual Console.
I'd love to tell them that they should do that, but I'm sure it wouldn't do any good anyway.
But anyway, if anyone knows how to get game ROMs from the Internet to play on a Wii, please let me know. You can also E-mail the answer to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want, and actually, it would be nice if you did do that even if you respond in the forum too because I might forget to check back on the forum, but I always remember to check my E-mail, so it would be nice to have a reminder.
Anyway, I guess that's all. ...Take care, everyone. ...Bye. :-)
