Virtual Console VS Real Game

Today I was looking for N64 so I could finally play MM on the actual system and then I thought "Am I the only one who does this?" Does anyone else prefer to play games as the physical game and own it or would you rather just own it on a virtual console.

Re: Virtual Console VS Real Game

It sort of depends.


I prefer playing OoT on my 3DS than on the N64. Going back to the classic graphics after playing the polished version sort of hurts my eyes now.

Also, I would go back to my N64 if the controller's sticks weren't broken or worn out. I prefer the sturdiness of the NGC controllers when playing N64 games on the Wii.

Re: Virtual Console VS Real Game

In the sense of just playing the game, I couldn't care less if it was with the cartridge, in virtual console, or even in my PC through emulation.

But nothing beats owning a physical copy of the game, even if you don't use it for playing.

I love my old OoT cartridge and I wouldn't change it for anything, but I never use it, as I prefer playing it on the Collectors Edition disk, or on emulator to get better graphics if I can get a good enough USB controller.

Re: Virtual Console VS Real Game

I don't really care. Of course, I sold my N64 awhile ago, and now I've got all of the Zelda games from the Virtual Console that are there. Although I do like the N64 controller better for Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask better than the classic controller because of the C-buttons (and I'll accidentally press one of the Z buttons on the classic controller when trying to press the L or R buttons or get it with my leg or knee), although you do have more options for the C-buttons (minus the C^ button). Again, it's all up to what you want to do, although since you don't have an N64, it would be a good idea to play over the Virtual Console right now, so you can enjoy Majora's Mask. In the end, it just doesn't matter which one you choose to go with, because, aside from the design on the blocks and switches in Ocarina of Time, there's no difference visually.

Re: Virtual Console VS Real Game

I generally would prefer to own the physical copy of any game, but in MM's case, no. The VC version has less lag and don't require a silly expansion pak like N64 does. Plus, I prefer using the GCN controller to the N64.

Re: Virtual Console VS Real Game

I've played Oot and MM on the N64, GameCube, and on the ROM.

If I had to choose, I'd probably choose to play MM on the GC and Oot on the 3DS(though I haven't yet).

Re: Virtual Console VS Real Game

I like owning the physical copy for a game, because I am a collector. I love having all these different games on my shelf. Unless the game is hard to find or expensive, I will usually get the physical copy.

...Thumbs up if anyone loved playing the N64 Zeldas and A Link to the Past on a keyboard...

Re: Virtual Console VS Real Game

Have you tried Oot and MM with a keyboard? Its actually quite fun and even if you only have 4 directional buttons, you can still move a full 360.

Re: Virtual Console VS Real Game

I always prefer the game on the console it was made for. In the case of Ocarina of Time vs Ocarina of Time 3D, the 3D version was made for the 3DS, and so it is better for that system. I cannot stand playing the Legend of Zelda Collector's Edition on my GameCube, and even playing it on my computer is not nearly as fun.

Re: Virtual Console VS Real Game

I like just about any version, just as long as I can play the game. Playing it on the original console feels more epic though, for sure.
