    Re: Super Mario Bros.

    The Wii has plug-ins on the top of the console that take Gamecube controllers. I use that for playing these old games. Now only if Nintendo offered Conquor's Bad Fur Day and Goldeneye (64 version) to be purchased for the Wii, I think I'd be set.

    Bought a used one for $50 from Jay's CD in Valley West. They also have some good vinyl. Picked up the original white strips record.

    Nintendo has nothing to do with those games getting on the vc. I also wouldn't hold my breath since Rare got bought by Microsoft. No way those games ever get rereleased.

    Re: Super Mario Bros.

    Forgive my nerd-mode in advance…

    NES and SNES software has actually gone through the roof in terms of collectors prices recently, unless you're buying from someone who doesn't know what they have, it probably isn't cheapest to buy real hardware and software for those two particular systems. Even some of the best selling software of all time like Super Mario 3 sell for high prices on ebay and used shops. Sega Genesis is a little more realistic to buy real hardware/software outside of a few niche titles and still easy to find.

    100% legally I'm guessing a used Wii is the cheapest route for NES and SNES.

    In the 'not quite legal' category handheld emulators like the CGW Zero (and other android based handheld emulators) are pretty awesome. I play mine all the time commuting. But these are rarely plug and play and almost never totally legal to play the games you'd want to play. http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/168f/

    There are more and more home based consoles meant mainly for emulation, but in my experience the handhelds are better.

    Re: Super Mario Bros.

    If you got some tech skills, get a raspberry pi and some retro usb controllers. Put this on it http://blog.petrockblock.com/retropie/

    Decent setup for a bunch of old consoles for probably less than $50 in parts.

    Re: Super Mario Bros.

    That new bar downtown has Mario Kart on a projection screen and Mario Bros on a tv in the back. Best idea ever. Who doesn't love Mario Bros?

    Re: Super Mario Bros.

    I got this for like $13 once on Groupon:

    http://hyperkin.com/nintendo/nes/ret...tem-black.html

    The controllers feel really cheap, but you can plug in NES controllers if you can find them. Works like a charm.

    Funny that you mention that because that's where I played yesterday.
