No bad news here. It's starting to look like the Wii would be able to hold it's own in the market if it were nothing BUT the Virtual Console.

Did you mean Custer's Revenge?

They don't want that.

A lot of hardcore Pirates! fans think so. Pirates! Gold is cooler though. That's a better game.

I used to have that machine and a Vic-20 back in the 80's, but now I play those games on my M-Xbox..
Also, that system had some of the illest sounds coming from a chip (chip-music) anywhere..
Try listening to the "Commando" theme to see what Imean..

Well my first machine was a C64 (well a C128) - so I love the thing

and a good few of its games are still enjoyable:

Uridium - great side scrolling shooter

Paradroid - emm robot shooter thingy

Armalyte - another side scroll shmup

IO - another side scrolling shmup

Any of the LucasfilM 'fractal' games: Rescue On Fractalus, Koronis Rift, Eidolon

Wizball - kinda hard to explain - bouncing ball shooter :p

Bounder - vert scrolling tennis ball game

Encounter - 3d tank game

Mercenary - a very early wireframe 3d game

there are more great games but Im too tired to think

And as Lan-Di said - the sound chip (SID Chip) on the C64 was amazing - some of the music for the games were great - esp Zoids and Nemesis

download sidplayer to have a listen

theres even a synth using the chip nowadays:

Anywayz - I cant wait to get that Wii - all those emulators, plus Gamecube compatability :)

A great many games are still worth playing.

Top of the entire list would probably be M.U.L.E. -- although, the afficianado will refer you to the Atari 800 for the best experience. This tends to apply to all the Dani Bunton games -- great on the C64, best on an Atari.

Infocoms are still a blast.
