Winding down the WiiWare

--EDIT, September 29, 2017--
Users won't be able to add points to their Wii Shop accounts after March 26th, 2018, and won't be able to purchase on the channel beyond January 31st, 2019.

Sorry if the thread is misleading. I have no idea when or if Nintendo plans to close the old WiiWare shop, but with the Switch now out, I can't imagine they'd keep it active for too much longer.

So with that in mind, I've got 2,600 Wii points to spend, and I'd like to spend them on titles that are currently exclusive to WiiWare or have gameplay especially suited to the platform.

Here's a couple exclusive titles that interest me, but I don't know if they'd be much fun without the now-defunct Nintendo network enhancements:
Excitebike: World Rally
Wario Ware D.I.Y. Showcase (I own the DS game, but don't know how much I would get out of the Wii companion if I can't download or share levels)

I already own Mega Man 9 & 10, the Konami Rebirth series, and Doc Louis's Punch-Out.

Some other considerations:
Wonder Boy in Monster Land (Arcade, 900 pts)
Shinobi (Arcade, 900 pts)
Castlevania Rondo of Blood (TurboGrafx 16, 900 pts)
Ninja Gaiden Arcade (600 pts)
Final Fantasy IV The After Years (800 pts)
Blaster Master Overdrive (1000 pts)
Bomberman Blast (1000 pts)
Any Sega Master System games (500 pts)?
Any Turbo Grafx 16 games games (600 pts)?
