I suspect most people didn't buy very many. I've had a Wii, Wii U, switch, and DS. I have never bought any game from the Virtual Console. I also had an NES and SNES growing up, so I grew up playing a good chunk of these . My brother has had all these systems except the switch and he's only ever bought 2 games

I think the board is just blowing things out of proportion...again

i missed out on the nes and snes (was a sega kid) so ended up with a large virtual console library, it was one of my favorite things about the wii, having all these classic games in one place.

the wiiu VC was a bit dissapointing in regards to several systems not being supported but the GBA games were nice.

with switch also doubling as a handheld i was exited at the prospect of being able to play these games on a device which is portable rather than being tethered to a TV.

people accuse others of blowing something out of proportion when it doesnt apply to them.

I never bought any. I only buy digital games without DRM. I only have ones I got for free. Also having a PAL system getting the 50hz PAL versions was a downside, and some of the games I would've been most interested in were not available(or locked to other regions).

I collect games so VC is pretty meaningless to me (but a great idea for others nonetheless). Still...gotta support the team when it comes to EarthBound. Also got some JP exclusives like EB Beginnings and Rondo of Blood, as well as some stuff on the go like the DK games on my 3DS to play when I travelled two years ago.

Between all platforms and including a few double dips, probably around 30-40 titles.

Metroid Prime Trilogy and Paper Mario.

The trilogy was an actual vc game? I'm not talking about digital purchases of current gen or remastered games
