If you can play the galaxy games, WW HD, NSMBU, Wii Sports, Pokemon B/W 1-2, DKC 3-4, Metroid: Other M, MP trilogy, MK Wii, and SSB Wii you will be up to speed.

My last Nintendo System was the gamecube, and i will surely buy the WiiU next year when MK8 releases.

I will have MH3Ultimate, 3G frontier, MK8, ZeldaWWHD, X game, and later Smash bros. at disposal. Just that worths buying the system.

A 3DS or a Wii U are probably the best options at this point.

it will get Nintenod 64 and Game Boy Advance releases in the future. But there was no official word on Gamecube titles.

As for 3DS:

Zilch to all 3 on 3DS, and it's just as bad on Wii U with a pitiful amount of snes games and zero N64 games currently, unless you're happy to play them in Wii mode which requires purchasing a wiimote + classic controller. GCN games are completely unavailable outside of the GCN itself.

I say get a Wii U+3DS, that lets you play all of the new/upcoming 3DS/Wii U games, plus all DS and Wii games. If possible, I'd also try to find a cheap gamecube/Wii so you can play Gamecube games.

The Wii U virtual console is a bit lacking, but you can go into Wii Mode on it and access a ton more games on the Wii virtual console (which can eventually be brought to the Wii U VC if you want for a small fee). The NES and SNES selections are pretty good, although I find their N64 to be a bit lacking.

The 3DS VC mostly features Gameboy and Gameboy Color games, as well as some NES games that are also on the Wii VC, you won't find SNES/N64 games on it.

Damn, that sucks. So there really isn't a good, legal, cheap way to catch up? Oh well.

Unfortunately, no there isn't. Nintendo sucks balls with their VC "service."

Did you even bother to click the links I sent you? The two lists are up to date and are more reliable than someone saying 'there's nothing and the Wii U sucks'.
