The fact that they're still charging us for SNES and NES games is just sad... Not sure what kind of promotion is to be found in offering up a 25 year old game for free every month.

it's not sad it shows how good the games are and most likely you never played any or you would know that

It's funny you say that because in the eyes of many older gamers, these 25 year old games hold up much better than many modern games.

These sales are also fairly inexpensive too. Unless you really feel the need to complain about paying $.30.

I've played nearly all of them. They're 25 years old and can still cost $5 - $8.

It isn't sad at all. It is smart and isn't that costly on the consumer. What would be smarter is move these games to the mobile market but Nintendo are being stubborn on that one

yeah because buy a old school game for adults to get a nostalgic experience and showing their kids what they grew up playing is totally greedy

The fact that these games are still supported is remarkable! A positive in my eyes

You're paying $2.10 for an entire collection of classic games, how is that sad? Plus each are Gamepad and Miiverse accessible.
