Several threads here have discussed this topic, but none that I’ve found works for my particular situation. I’m not completely clueless about video games, just hopelessly outdated. (I actually know what “Pong” is :eek: ) The only systems my kids (ages 8 &10) have played with are my old Super NES and N64 machines. That said, they absolutely love the games they’ve played on them: Metroid, Link, the various Marios, Megaman, DK in all its varieties, etc. They really enjoy puzzle/adventure combo games, and I’d like to get a new system that either offers newer versions of these classics, or similar games of the type listed above. I tried searching online, but simply got bowled over with information overload. I’m hoping the savvy folks at the SD can offer some insight.
So, what say you all? Cost is not really an issue, though I try to be reasonably frugal these days. I can afford a top end machine, but I’m more interested in getting the right machine that will support the right games (mostly Nintendo at this point - I think the oldest would love the newer Metroids). The kids don’t (yet) do any online gaming, so that’s not much of an issue. We have high enough speed on our PC to run these games and download them, though.
Suggestions on games to play, systems, where to buy… any help/advice is greatly appreciated!
