Don't you think is about time GameCube???

Does any believe that Nintendo should release the classics into the GameCube??

Some like Mario for the NES system and the good ol' Duck Hunt!!!

I think they should release them as a museum collection or something!!

I still remember when I played Mario in the arcades 12 or some years ago and I couldn't pass the thing and it took me a couple tries to get it together. Does anyone remember that?

The games back then seemed more challenging, althought we have some now that are challenging and visually beautiful but I think that it's time to get a flash back when I had tons of trouble and fun with video games.

If you want to play NES games, you have a couple options currently. Buy an NES, or download an emulator and some games. Honestly, though, something like Sega did with the Dreamcast is a good idea, but it would be nice to have more games included. If they released an NES collection and an SNES collection (both on individual discs), it would prompt me to buy a GameCube.

My arcade favorite was Galaga at the time.

Games were harder back then. That was when game companies equated difficulty with fun, though. They've wisened up a bit in the last 15 years or so.

That is a good idea. In the mean time I suggest you purchase a GBA.

Take it from a man with a 2 year old. Duck hunt gets real boring in a matter of minutes.

As for the other stuff, I am still playing the SNES the majority of the time, then the NES, then the Genesis, N64, PSX, and so on.

Pick them up on ebay. The original feel is worth buying rather than messing with emulators, IMO.

I haven't played in an arcade for a while (7-8 years) but I am quite sure that back then games were difficult so that we pumped more quarters into the machine. But it is true: today console and PC games seem too easy unless you play on suicide mode...

Animal Forest + is supposed to include original NES games.

Who's up for a Zelda Collection in which the games are set up in chronological order?

It's there a way???

Does anyone know how to send Nintendo a mail notification? I would love to write them a letter to see if they'll do it. I doubt that can be possible but you'll never know if you don't try right!!!

Goto their website, you can contact them there. It's only NOA, but you will get a response. Nintendo always writes personal responses to emails, even though their answers are mostly cut and paste types. However, they WILL read what you write.

They'll probally tell you its a fine idea, but they don't accept game ideas and that they have lots of "surprises" in store. Just my guess.
