I've owned a lot, but sadly I didn't keep them. I also, up until 2007, had a PS2, but it DIED.
I just recently got an N64 again. Starting again from scratch.

Stuff I like:
anything that's fun, honestly. If it looks fun, I'll give it a go. I'm not biased towards one game type.
couple of favs:
MOST things Mario [read: Mario's Missing]
Bioshock
the Mega Man series.
Virtua Fighter
VS games
Mariokart
Tetris
the Burnout series
Conker's Bad Fur Day [awesome]
Banjo-Kazooie
Some monster truck game of which I can't remember the name
Ranbow Six series
Resident evil
Fallout
So much. I won't post em' all, but so many.
A lot of retro-ish stuff, too.
ETERNAL DARKNESS-one of my favorite games. period.

I loved alot of my 64 games; wish I woulda kept em'
Actually, I should have kept a lot of my stuff. but I didn't.

I'm a big advocate for multiplayer; whether split-screen or otherwise. Even some sucky games can be fun with a friend.
I lost a big chunk of my game archives in 2005, but I'm too poor to completely rebuild it. Instead I just pick em' up on the cheap whenever I get the chance.

I'm a big arcade guy. I love em', and I wish they weren't disappearing.
Hopefully they won't.

Fun is fun.

As evidenced by THIS. The commercial is very worth watching. I couldn't find a version for embedding, Sorry. It's for a new, exclusive to club members, Wiiware game featuring the Ultra Hand for some reason. Whether or not it's worth it is up to you. I might get it just because it's *only* 80 coins. (That's a Wii and DS game basically)

Anyway, Club Nintendo has got some new things to offer, including that Wiiware game. The other stuff is definitely more interesting. They've now got a Mario poster series similar to the Legend of Zelda one they already have. I have to say it's a little underwhelming, although the second poster is not bad; it reminds me a little of All-stars. Have some big pictures:




Along with the game and poster series, American members finally get a chance to have the Game & Watch Collection 2 for DS. It has Octopus, Parachute, and a new game: Parachute x Octopus. Whatever, I think it's more for collectors' shelves than for playing.




So. all in all, another round of very meh stuff, along with a cool game that Japanese members already have. I'm not all that impressed with Club Nintendo America so far, but I have the coins, so I might get some of the items anyway. I think my favorite thing from them so far is my 2010 calander. Here's to hoping the next round of stuff is better. Again.
That sounds negative. At least they're trying.

RANDOM UPDATE:
Awesome. Apparently you Netflix disc for Wii IS WORTH 20 COINS ON CLUB NINTENDO. Even if you don't want one, you should order one. That's 20 free coins. DO EEEEET.
