It turns out I have a little shopping money and I'm thinking about buying a game or two on the eShop.

I saw that they added Ocarina of Time N64 to the Wii U and I am thinking about getting that.

Currently I have these games for/downloaded on my Wii U:

Physical:
- Splatoon
- Mario Kart 8
- Nintendo Land
- Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

Digital:
- Super Mario Galaxy 2
- Donkey Kong Country




I heard Shovel Knight is a good game, but is it short?

Also, I never played any F-Zero or Metroid (or Star Fox) game. I think there is Metroid Prime Trilogy on the eShop, but is it one of the good Metroid games?

I'm mostly geared towards Nintendo VC games as I haven't played much of those.

The only indies I would think about buying is Pushmo World and Shovel Knight.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Highly recommend Shovel Knight. Clocks in around ~7 hours. The Metroid Prime games are highly regarded, and for $20 it's a great deal. Wind Waker is always a great buy. As for VC games, I would recommend:

Earthbound
Super Metroid
Advance Wars
Donkey Kong Country 1-3
Super Mario World
Kirby Superstar
A Link to the Past
Paper Mario
Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones
M&L: Superstar Saga

Ah okay, cool. I might pass on Shovel Knight for right now, I will eventually try it out. Same with Metroid Prime.

I've been eyeing Earthbound and Fire Emblem though.

I read up that Sacred Stones doesn't tie in to any game and that there is a FE game before it (just called Fire Emblem).

Have you played the first Fire Emblem game? Or just Sacred Stones?

No, I have it on my Wii U but I haven't played it yet. I personally love Sacred Stones though. They look very similar though, so you could probably go from one to the other easily.

For virtual console, I recommend Golden Sun if you're into RPGs. It's very standard, but that's not really a bad thing.

I'd really recommend giving EarthBound a try if you're interested in it. It's predecessor, EarthBound Beginnings, is also a good game to try out, but I'd recommend playing it after EarthBound, since it can be a little rough around the edges at times.

Kirby Super Star for SNES is actually a really good title. I recommend picking that up.
