Top 10 retro titles that could work wonders on Wii U

ONM: It's nearly time folks; Wii U's release date is likely being announced rather soon. As a result, speculation surrounding upcoming games for Nintendo's new system is growing by the second. Clearly, the question on every fans mind is this - Can Nintendo deliver a full spectrum of stellar titles for Wii U?

Well of course they can. But despite that, we want Nintendo to swiftly dip their hands into history and plucked out a few games from yester-year, give them a HD sprinkle and let Wii U's Gamepad do the rest. (Earthbound, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, Mario Party, Wii U)

Nintendo is just doing the exact same thing it did with the Wii and that didnt hurt their sales at all.

Seriously why is this so hard for some people to understand?I could understand it if you werent around for the Wii launch..
I have to LOL at "fears and criticism" though... First off what is to "fear" about the Wii U? If its not good enough for you or someone else then simply don't buy it.

Criticism? Yeah well Nintendo will always get that regardless. Most people criticize them over no F-zero or Star Fox and then there is a rumor that both are coming to Wii U up right now. The same people that hated them before still hate them now. It changed nothing and never will.

Shit. A fanboy is sighted. Nintendo doesn't care about you. Hard to understand? Stop defending them like they care

So much for not responding to a single post of mine... Oh but I am the one with issues... I simply disagreed with you and point out why. You are the one that got upset and started the attacks kid because you cant handle it when someone doesnt agree with you but you cant prove them wrong in any way...

Earthbound, as is, gameplay-wise, with MAYBE some voice acting, but in Wii level graphics is good enough for me. And I mean AS IS. The simple battle screens would be the same, simply with 3D modeled pictures instead of pixel ones. The over world and cut scenes would look like the CG from Super Smash Bros Melee opening, etc. My friends and I would all buy it, along with a few extra copies to give to others who we think would like it, but are resistant to old school graphics.
