There are so many games to choose from on the Wii's Virtual Console that it becomes incredibly difficult to pick only ten of them. There is an order to this, however, in that the top games are ones you should definitely get if you haven't played them in a good while and then a few gems that were top class games way back when things cost less, milk was free, politicians didn't lie and everything was rose tinted.

Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Possibly one of the greatest games ever created and one that always crops up near the top of Best Games Ever lists. Ocarina of Time took Link into the 3D world and made him explore it and uncover every single item, chest, temple, weapon and so on. With so many memorable characters and stand out pieces you'd have to be mad not to have played it already, or just really, really young. And if you are really, really young then the squeaks and grunts Link makes will have you giggling like the child you actually are.

Why did you mention the SNES version of Street Fighter Alpha 2? Wasn't that awful and barely playable?

I'm not actually sure Paper Mario is available, although I know MM is. If so, it probably does deserve a placing. I personally prefer MM to OoT, and I know many others who do as well, but that one really is a matter of opinion. As games, both are superb.

Pretty good list, although I would have included Sin & Punishment, put MK64 over MK, and somehow found a place for Super Mario World or Donkey Kong Country.
