Nintendo released Tennis for the 3DS Virtual Console today, and this fact makes me happy.
Now, I don’t like sports, and I especially don’t care for sports games. Tennis isn’t interesting, and a primitive black-and-white (or green-and-grey) simulation of the sport that barely rises above Game & Watch-level sophistication isn’t really the sort of thing to get anyone’s blood pumping.
No, what excites me about seeing games like Tennis is just the prospect of having a huge library of classic portable games on a single system that can be held in the palm of my hand. And unlike, say, emulation on PSP, I don’t have to feel guilty about it.
Sometimes I am more enthusiastic about the idea of games than I am about the games themselves. I suppose this would be one of those cases.
