I've been a pretty big proponent of Xbox Live Arcade ever since I first used the service. I mostly favor new offerings, but classic games with new features like online multipler are nice.
However, my 360 is going under the knife after crapping out this weekend, so I fell back on Wii's Virtual Console.
I opted for Star Fox 64 (having given my N64 to my brother years ago, I'm unlikely to have this one again) and Super Mario Bros 2 ( my girlfriend had NEVER PLAYED IT).
A friend of mine owns many, many Virtual Console games even though he owns stacks of carts just for the ability to turn on his system and start a game without looking for it (not unlike cuing a song on an iPod vs getting an album out and starting it)
Where do you fall on this? It occurs to me I may be able to save money investing in old systems and carts than paying $5, $8, or $10 for an old game. But its so nice to just download and play any time.
What games (if any) have earned your Wii points, PS3 bucks, or Microsoft points?
