Super Mario RPG for SNES will set you back $50, on Wii only $8The American gaming magazine Nintendo Power is running a poll in their latest issue to find out what classic games gamers would most like to see appear on the Wii Virtual Console. Once the results are in the magazine will publish the Top 100 most requested titles. Since this is Nintendo’s official magazine, the company should be paying attention, so this is your best chance to get your word in.

To quote the Nintendo magazine’s request to its readers and you: “What classic games do you want to see come to Virtual Console? Send us up to five picks (only for systems currently represented on Virtual Console) at We’ll print results in an upcoming issue. Note: This is for polling purposes only, and will in no way determine future Virtual Console releases.”
