As has been said in the past, talking about RPGs in the VC Monday Madness videos is sort of difficult. You see, the amount of time it takes to play a RPG title and get a feel for it is, well, almost an unrealistic expectation from a blogger. Well, unrealistic if you want your video on the same day the Virtual Console updates. So, if you're a fan of the series or the genre, then this might be something you'll want to check out.

That concludes our look at this week's Virtual Console games. As always, if you have any tips or rumors regarding Nintendo's Virtual Console service, be sure to let us know and come back next week when we take a look at the latest titles available on the Nintendo Wii!
