The thing is they have none of the VC features that the other systems do. No Restore Points, no special menus, no custom controls, just a straight download of the game with a link to a PDF file of the digital manuals. Heck, they don't even have pro controller support for some reason despite adding in Gamepad support to the Wii Retail Download versions. In my eyes, (and the eyes of the picky Virtual Console Wikipedia page moderators) the Wii Retail Download games are no different than buying a 2012 Wii U Game off of the eShop, in that it's just a digital version of a retail title with no extra bonuses whatsoever. Until Nintendo officially labels the Wii Games as Virtual Console titles worldwide, I'll still refer to them as retail downloads as that is what they are called.
