BEST LIBRARY ON VIRTUAL CONSOLE?​

What System has the BEST Available Library on VC?

NES
SNES
N64
Sega Genesis/Mega Drive
Sega Master System
Turbo Grafx-16
Neo Geo
VC Arcade
Commodore 64


I'll still have to say NES and SNES--just due to the number of titles for each system--but if we're talking Quality-Over-Quantity---it's a tough choice.

I'd say SNES has a better grouping of GREAT games....

As far as my favorite library of games, I would go with SNES, but best overall I would still say SNES :)

I'll give my views on what I think of each system's game library.

NES: Pretty good, actually. A nice blend of classics and forgotten gems. Only thing that bugs me is that the Mega Man series on NES is still incomplete.

SNES: Not bad. No Yoshi's Island and Starfox is certainly disappointing, but other than that a lot of quality good games.

Genesis: Good selection, but thanks to the mass amount of compilations for the Genesis SEGA has released, the only ones that I felt were worth getting were Dynamite Headdy and Toejam & Earl.

Neo Geo: See above, especially considering how many of the Neo Geo compilations are on the Wii.

Sega Master System: What the heck happened here? The Sega Master System is such a great system with a fantastic game library, and it just got forgotten! Come on SEGA, we know the Master System didn't gain as much fame as the Genesis, but this is a great chance to release some of your classics like Quartet and Astro Warrior!

C64: The C64 is certainly an odd one. The games are over-priced, and don't really feel at home on the Wii. I don't have anything against the system, mind you.

N64: Without third-party support, a lot of what made the N64 so great to begin with is lost. You're better off just getting an original N64.

Turbografx-16: Surprisingly good! Full of high quality shmups and fun party games, I'm honestly glad that I was introduced to this system through VC.

VC Arcade: WAY too many games that have already been released on VC through other systems (e.g. Golden Axe). Expensive too, even just for 8-bit titles.

I'd have to make it a tie between NES and Turbografx-16 for the best library. I know I'll get a bunch of weird looks for praising the Turbografx so much, but hey, I'm allowed to have my own opinion, right?

SNES, as I grew up with that system, and glad to see most of the games on there were the ones I played countless hours back then.
(MegaMan X, Super Metroid, Super Mario World, DKC Series)

I hope people don't mind, but as the Wii looks to be winding down--I feel like reflecting a bit on the Wii's VC....

Lets' re-rate the libraries, well the ones I like:

NES: 6/10--Less games than Sega Genesis(why?), and Princess Tomato ruined it
SNES: 7/10--Still no SMW2, Mario is Missing, Mario Paint, and TMNT IV: Turtles In Time
N64: 5/10--21 games, and besides MK64, Paper Mario, Cruis'n USA there's not much I know/like---OH, and a SERIOUS lack of N64's GREAT 3rd Party lineup
Genesis: 5/10--aside from Sonic, nothing else piques my interests
Master System: 5/10--SEE ABOVE

and the rest: Well, they just shouldn't be on VC to be honest
