While we're all pretty much over it, it's still a lingering disappointment that we've missed out this generation on seeing high definition Nintendo games. But wait, what's this? A workaround?

Provided you get your hands on a Dolphin emulator for the Wii and legally copy your own games to your PC, you can see what they'd look like if Nintendo had decided to bring the Wii's graphics into the 21st century.

These clips (don't forget to click "HD!") show the game running in what equates to 720p, and while this will be nothing new to the emulator crowd (who are used to seeing these kind of clean-up jobs), it's something new to the high definition dreamers out there in the Mushroom Kingdom.
