Looking to get into the Virtual Console. Which games would you guys recommend the most?

It depends. Which genres do you like? Which games have you played already?

Oracle of Ages/Seasons are great little Zelda games. I suggest buying one first, and if you like it, buy the other.
Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins is a classic platformer. Short but fun (as are most Game Boy games).
Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow/Gold/Silver if you're into Pokemon and want some retro action.
Kirby is fun too.

Skip Donkey Kong Land. I loved it, but only because I played it as a kid. It's really not a very good game I guess, but I'm biased.

Donkey Kong on Gameboy (the one that's just called Donkey Kong) is a terrific game.

You might also be interested in the Sega 3D Classics games.

Can’t go wrong with any of the Pokémon or Zelda games. Mario Land 2 and Donkey Kong (GB) are solid as well

Mario golf and tennis.
All the megaman games except II, specifically 4 and 5. Also Xtreme 1 and 2.
All three Zeldas.
All the Pokémon games, including Puzzle Challenge, and my personal favorite, the Pokémon Tcg game.
Mario Bros. Deluxe.
Harvest Moon GBC3.
Probably a lot more I'm not thinking of

Super Metroid and Mega Man X. I feel like these games get better with age.

I have:
Super Metroid
Mega Man X, might get X2 eventually
Super Mario World
Pilot Wings (For nostalgia)

Also I have bought Kirby's Pinball (hardly played it though)
Pokemon Red
and the Donkey Kong game where you solve puzzles, it's really good and cheap.

I just grabbed my system to see what VC games I have... I have some more than these but these are the ones I'd recommend to everyone to check out.

Oracle of Ages/Seasons (Link's Awakening too, though I don't own it)
Mole Mania
Catrap (brilliant puzzle design, though very difficult)
Donkey Kong (one of the best GB games ever, period)
Gargoyle's Quest (short and a bit dated, but still good and has two excellent sequels)
Wario Land 2 (don't have 1 because I played it to death as a kid, but it's also very good, as is Mario Land 2 mentioned above)
Kirby's Dream Land 2 (1 is also fun but very short and easy)
Balloon Kid
Summer Carnival '92 RECCA (a fantastic shmup for Famicom that never got a US release and is only available on 3DS over here)
Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters
Mega Man V (out of all the classic MM games on GB, this is the best one by far, and doesn't recycle NES content like the others)
Lock'n'Chase (a great little take on the Pac-Man formula)

And a couple on my wishlist:

Blaster Master Enemy Below
Wario Land 3 (I have played this game before and do recommend it like 1 and 2)
  1. Boards
  2. Nintendo 3DS
  3. Best VC games?
