Do you remember Excitebike from the 80’s?

Thanks to the Wii, you can download it and other oldies but goodies to your Wii system.

I love this game now as much as I did back in the 80’s!

When my husband and I showed our nephews some of the games we played as kids, they were not exactly amused, lol!  They lost interest after about three minutes, at which point the politely said, “Can we please play some Wii games now?”

I’m thrilled Nintendo has come as far as it has, and still managed to hang on to some of my childhood favorites.

To see some of Nintendo’s past games, visit your Wii Shop Channel, and click on Virtual Console. You can search by popular titles, newest additions, category, or game title.

What are your favorite early Nintendo games?

    Actually the games I’m most interested in on Virtual Console are Double Dragon and Street Fighter II but I really need to get one of the (wired, I think?) classic controllers for those.

    Hi Andy

    I don’t know why I am so obsessed with ExciteBike, especially with all of the selections available on the virtual console.

    I do enjoy using the classic controller for the older games–I find it so much easier!
