I don't have the Wii Homebrew Channel, but for the most part I don't really have a problem with it. Now, obviously I'm against any form of piracy, whether it be selling burnt Wii games for chipped Wii's or downloading games yourself. I've bought every game I own, brand new. But as far as applications such as the Wii DVD player, media centre, and homemade games, I say go for it; be as creative as you want. The fanmade Quake and Super Mario War ports, for example, have been well-received.
And now that Nintendo has pretty much abandoned the Virtual Console (one of the main reasons I bought I Wii), I'd say emulators (on a TV with a Classic/GameCube controller) would be pretty cool as well. I may get the Homebrew Channel some time in the future; maybe when Nintendo’s next console comes out. If only to play the NES/SNES/N64 games like I'd dreamed back in 2006, and to have a self-contained media system (for movies, music and photos) connected to the TV. It seems to me if the Wii has the technology, why not use it. Maybe I'm wrong... What do you guys think?
