I hope they add a Virtual Console section to the 3DS

I was just looking at my 3DS menu and realizing how cluttered it looks... and then started panicking at the thought of what will happen when we get these 20 free virtual console games. All hell is going to break loose! D:

But a simple solution for this clutter, and one that I hope Nintendo has plans to utilize, is adding a "Virtual Console" option on the 3DS menu, where it stores all your Virtual Console games, maybe even allows the ability to connect to the eShop Virtual Console to download new ones and redownload ones you had to delete or something.

But basically, instead of having 25 random games that you can barely see the titles of, there is just one icon, "Virtual Console", that when you open it, reveals a menu of the systems you have games for, and then when you click on the systems, the games you have are displayed in alphabetical order or something.

I know the Wii had games cluttered all around, but something about the 3DS feels more cluttered in that respect. I don't know. What do you think of my idea that potentially millions of other people have already thought of? :D

I totally agree with you. My Home Menu has lots of apps. I sure do hope they add a Virtual Console section.
Lets me know if you added me! :D

I would definitely like a folder-esque way of storing all your VC games into one tab, yeah.

Misleading topic title is misleading! Lol, but yes, I agree with you.
Stop making sense. People are trying to bash everything Nintendo does without thinking. Go somewhere else. - Mattperd, about the 3DS boards.

This is actually a good idea. I'd want one for DSiWare too, personally.

We should be able to make or own folders like Apple products. Drag and drop. Rename and done.

Lol sorry for the misleading topic title. That was not my intention :P. Glad some other people think this is a good idea though! :D

I agree with this, folders based on platform. And YES, the eShop could stand for a little more organization, especially for DSiWare games, there needs to be just a separate icon/section for that, just like they have for Virtual Console in the eShop.

Absolutely, but why stop there? Make a folder app for the VC, DSiWare, 3D Videos, 3D Games (such as 3d classis, pokedex, AR, etc). Then have the option to use them or not, say you only have one dsiware title, and don't want to have to go into that section to find the one game; you could turn the folder off, or better yet have drag n drop function so you could store your favorites on the home menu and the rest in the folders.
