GamePlay: Nintendo's Top 10 Games Still Missing From The Virtual Console

GP writes: "It has been 844 days since the Wii was released here in the U.S., and since the day it was released, classic titles from my childhood show up every Monday courtesy of the Virtual Console. It's like a little chocolate chip cookie for me to wake up to first thing in the morning as I begin my trudge through another week. Over the last two plus years the V.C. has had its ups and downs; from great classic titles that never saw Stateside release, to weeks and weeks of virtual drought. However, through the thick and thin, the retro gamer inside me has stuck with it, in hopes that some of my all-time favorites would become available for me to download, and play again, all at the click of a button. However, even after all this time, and all these weeks, there's still a hearty list of essential Nintendo titles that are still missing - and I'm talking about first party Nintendo published games. I mean, it's fine with me, just one more missed opportunity for Nintendo to take my money, but the thing is, I'll gladly pay to play a lot of these games, in most cases for the second or third time. Whether these games will ever make it on the V.C. is unknown to me, but hopefully someday I'll be able to give Nintendo more of my hard earned money, just to reminisce about being a kid. Below is my list of Nintendo's Top 10 games that are still missing from the Virtual Console, and it's restricted only to games that were published by Nintendo at the time of their original release. Who owns them now might be a whole different story." (Culture, Wii)

I can't believe Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island isn't there yet...
Love that game. I think Super Mario All-Stars is coming for a higher price of course. I personally want Rad Racer (NES). :)

I think that they should have replaced Mario Paint with Turok or GoldenEye 007
