Okay, I may be the only person on the face of the planet (Besides Kriss Kross, perhaps) who wants to see Sega CD games on the virtual console, but does that mean it shouldn’t happen?

Actually, maybe I’m being a little vague with my desires here. When I say Sega CD games, of course I don’t mean the BAD ones, which there are many of indeed (Ahem, Kriss Kross, I’m looking in your direction again). But what I do know for a fact is that many gems of gaming's past are going to slip through the cracks just because Wii’s virtual console is very exclusionary when it comes to picking old games from systems.

What do I mean by this? Well, hmm, let’s see. Sega Genesis has a LOT of fan favorites out there (Urban Strike, Contra Hard C.O.R.P.S, and Cool Spot—I know, shut up—are just a few that I know will probably never come to the virtual console).

But the thing is, I feel an even bigger problem resides in this article other than my complaint: that I’ll probably never see Sonic CD or Snatcher on the Wii. Really, I probably wouldn’t even be complaining that these awesome games are going to be M.I.A. if the Wii actually had some good games worth occupying my gaming time with. Super Mario Galaxy is a long way off, and so is Smash Bros., so what am I going to play in the meantime? That’s right, old games. And I’m not just talking about old games. I’m talking olllllld games from systems I once had that have since grown obsolete with massive dust build-up in the game slot, which is something I’m afraid is going to happen to my Wii pretty soon.
