Top ten Virtual Console games the Wii still needs

(Staff Editor Patrick Kulikowski gives you the top ten classic games he'd love to see on the Wii Virtual Console service.)

"Can you believe that come this November, Nintendo’s Wii Virtual Console service will have been around for six years? Since then, it’s gained a plethora of digital versions of our favorite, classic titles.

The amount of classic titles that one can purchase digitally on the Wii Shop Channel is staggering, but you’re nuts if you think that there aren’t any other titles that could be re-released on it. Nintendo’s Virtual Console offerings every week have been disappointingly sparse for the past few years, and they really shouldn’t be, because there are oodles of titles still missing in North America, Japan and Europe.

In the vein of my previous article in which I point out some games that Playstation Network is still missing, I now present to you the top ten NES, SNES, Genesis, and N64 games that are still noticeably absent from Nintendo’s Wii Virtual Cons... (Earthbound, Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, Nintendo, Retro, Soul Blazer, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Terranigma, Wii, Wii U)

Happy Earthbound was #1. Yoshi's Island is my second and the original Contra is my third. Wii U maybe?

Nintendo is such an assface when it comes to the mother series.

Mother 3 is the best handheld game ever made, but apparently NoA thought that Brain Age and Electroplankton needed localization, but Mother 3 didn't.
