    You know, I even thought about that, that it would only be a list, but figured, “nah, why do that to us?” No biggee I suppose. I’ve got a majority of those I can play on the original systems.

      Yeah, I was a little disappointed to see this was just an announcement of an announcement, but it’s not too big of a deal. I still have way too many other games I need to play before the Virtual Console launches!
