Gaming While Snowed In??

Posted by TheFalconProduction (51 posts) -

So I live in the north side of Chicago, Illinois, and for those who are in chicago you know it has been snowing since 5PM central time zone. So I will be coming into money for christmas, and I am deciding on what I should get.   
 
One of my options are a Nintendo Wii. I want the Wii because I love Zelda, Mario, Donkey Kong, just the old school classics. So i figure while it is a winter wonderland outside I could just stay home with family and play the Nintendo Wii.  
Also I bought stuff on the Nintendo Wii using Club Nintendo, so am I able to redownload those games/apps through the Nintendo Wii AGAIN, or would I have to buy them all over again?  
  
So thats my main concern... Should i get the Nintendo Wii for old great throwback games and newer games (Zelda, Mario, etc.) for entertainment while I'm off school in work, or should I just save up my money?

some games are hard to find but are on the wii. at my local game store they want a crap load of money for zelda majora's mask and delda a link to the past. The wii sells a link to the past for $8 and majora's mask for $10 so I'm happy. If you love nintendo games you should get a wii immediately. Gaming sites that hate the wii gave Super mario galaxy a 10.
