and I don't know what to get.  I already have: 
 

  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Tecmo Bowl
  • Donkey Kong
  • Punch Out!! Ft. Mr. Dream
  • Final Fantasy
  • River City Ransom
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • and two other games I can't remember the name of
 
I've looked through the game catalog and was hoping maybe you guys would suggest some hidden gems for me to purchase.  I was thinking of getting that Phoenix Wright game that was quick looked a few weeks back, but that's only if I can't find anything else worth getting.

@AgentJ: @Meowayne:  
 
Odd that you guys mention Sin & Punishment as I was going to use that as an example of me just looking over them and wondering if I should pick something up I have no idea about, hence my desire for hidden gems.

Sin&Punishment and Ocarina of Time are both titles that I had not played in their time and got the VC versions of. Ocarina of Time couldn't hold my interest, Sin&Punishment could. It's frantic, it's japanese, it's amazing. Sadly, it's kinda short and kinda expensive. 
 
Also, Sin & Punishment 2 is out soon.
 
Oh, and I agree with Dalai. The Bit.Trip games are also good.

I think if you enjoyed Starfox 64, you will probably enjoy Sin and Punishment
