Been gaming since the NES days. I remember computers, before the internet. My motivation to learn how to read was to play Final Fantasy. Games have, wonderfully, helped shape my life. I love games, history, writing and discussion. Pursuing that is the goal.

I've played games on Nintendo consoles for most of my life, but PC gaming opened up to me in the mid-90's. Current platforms: Wii U, 3DS, Steam. Typically playing: backlog of retro games.

We live in interesting times. I can't wait to see where the industry goes next.

     Considering Nintendo is discontinuing of their Wi-Fi network, I began thinking about things that may have a life span within Nintendo's online framework. We have already seen glimmers of this before. TMNT, the Donkey Kong Country SNES games, the once available Commodore 64 library on the Virtual Console are now not available. If you did have them on your Wii, and you used the system transfer tool on the Wii U, you've effectively lost those games.

     So here is the point. Below, is a list of VC games that I own. What classics am I missing? What weird, quirky game is worth a couple of bucks? Open to all suggestions, I'm just covering my bases now.
