    Looking for help on buying a wii - want to use a certain set up.

    I am a total novice so please don't be too hard on me. I want to buy a wii but only to download the old nintendo games - original nintendo and super nintendo. Yes I know they're ancient but I loved playing them when I was a kid and never got into the other systems. I have the original consoles but have trouble using my arms - it's hard putting in the cartridges and they're all old and dusty. I'm constantly fighting to get the games to work! Being able to download the games would really help a lot. I have a few questions though and would REALLY appreciate it if someone could help me out.

    1. I understand there's different wii's. Should I just get an old one since I don't want to play any wii games or is there a certain version anyone would recommend. I don't want to buy something if I can't download the games.

    2. I also want be able to use game genie. From what I understand I can run a game genie emulator? Would this work on any wii or again is there a certain version it would work best on?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    The Wii Mini is the only one you need to avoid for your purposes.

    The Wii has an online shop with many of these old games available for purchase, cheats will not work on these.

    If you use homebrew to run an emulator and play your roms I do believe they have game genie support built in but I have never used it myself. You may have some games that may not emulate well or at all.....

    You will probably want to get a classic controller to play these as well. I believe you can find knock off versions that mimic NES or SNES controllers....these plug in to the regular wii controller and use their wireless conection.

    Thanks! I guess my next step is to get a wii and go from there.
