How Much of a Retro Gamer Do You Think You Are?

How often do you play on your good old retro games and retro consoles? What retro games do you enjoy playing?

I am not a really retro gamer, but I am quite retro. I have a GC and a Wii, so I suppose I'm quite retro. I'm not sure what the requirements are to be a retro gamer.

Lol. I also have a Wii and GC. I also have an original DS and a GBA SP. My first console was the GC, I got it in September 2003. I got my GBA SP in December 2004. I really liked them both, as I still do.

I really wanna get a 64, but I imagine they're not easily purchasable.

Why don't you just buy the games on the VC? There's no extra controller or console needed, and the games are cheap. Plus, you can get games from all sorts of different consoles.

Because playing on the 64 just feels better. I don't know why, it just does. I know that you don't look at the console when playing, so you may think, "What's the difference?", but for starters, I don't like playing 64 or NES or SNES games with a Wii or GC controller. It just feels weird. I do like the virtual console, I just like the actual original console more.

I know what you mean. I suppose that when the next console is released, there will be gamecube games on the virtual console.

I hope that when the next console's released with gamecube games one the vc, you will be able to actually play the vc games with the gc controller. That'd be a big improvement.

Yeah, but by the time the next console comes out, which will probably be in about 5-10 years time, the gc will be a really old system, and not many people will still have a gc controller.

I don't know. Although the gc wasn't a very successful console, it was definitely popular. I think the next vc should be gc compatible for the small minority of people who have gc controllers, like me.
