The NES was all about Super Mario Bros. for me. Most of the other great NES games weren't out yet.

Wii U: Game and Wario!1!!, Nintendo Land.

Super Game Boy (*laughs* I got a GB Pocket later)

Super Mario Advance 2, Mega Man Battle Network
Super Mario 64 DS, Pokemon
Zelda: OoT. .... Mega Man Legends 3... ...
If people want the Wii U Cheaper, and the cost of the White model is already the price of the 3DS XL, are they saying they want it the same price as a 3DS?
