Actually, some games do use the A button to start. I played NES Open and didn't touch the start button at all. DKjr however doesn't start with the A button. --- 3DS Code:0344-9279-3656 FCs, PSN and Gamertag in profile
Having played the originals on my NES back in the day, I used Select and Start instinctively. I did wonder, though, if the VC contained an update that allowed the A button to work, so I went back to the title screen and tried it. Obviously, it didn't work. --- Religion is like spaghetti: either stiff and fragile, or wet and limp.
