Super Nintendo

I have to admit, my all time favorite gaming system was the Super Nintendo. It doesn't have the graphical power or the sound tracks of todays gaming systems, but the games for it were incredible. I felt like playing those games constantly, which is a rarity with some of the next-gen console games.

A few of my all time favorites:

Rock and Roll Racing - Great gameplay and soundtrack (even though it is a midi soundtrack). The commentators are fun, though occasionally annoying.

Mario Kart - Good single player game, great multiplayer.

Super Mario World - Many wasted hours on this one. After all, I had to finish all of the levels and get the star.

Super Punch Out - Just a great all round game. A lot of fun to play and very easy to get addicted to.

There's more, but I'm going to wait to hear your responses.

Super Metroid, Link To The Past, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island...

I could keep going on as well.

The SNES was the best console, IMO, as well.

SNES.. best system ever.

Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, Simcity, Bomberman, Earthbound, Illusion of Gaia, Super Mario RPG.

And, of course, the weirdest and most 'radical' game ever: Uniracers. =)

The single greatest baseball game ever created for any platform.

I still play it pretty often on a SNES rom I have here on my computer.

By far the best system ever. Gotta love when developers cared more about the actual game than the pretty graphics.

Zelda: A Link to the Past
Final Fantasy IV
Final Fantasy VI
Secret of Mana
Chrono Trigger
Secret of Evermore
Super Mario RPG
Super Metroid
Contra 3
Battle Toads

Best Games, ever.

*edit* Oops. Most of the games i mentioned were already mentioned by others. That just goes to show how great they are.

I still think that Base Wars(NES) or Super Baseball Simulator 3000(or however it was titled(SNES)) are greater baseball games.



Base Wars was the greatest...

The more I think about it, I think that Secret of Mana is be one of the greatest games of all time. A multiplayer action rpg that allowed hotswapping of players and just seemed to go on and on without getting boring. What a great game.

I was a Genesis kid though. I think it ruined my childhood. I was like the guy who liked the CFL instead of the NFL or the Clippers instead of the Lakers. Total outsider. But, I'm not bitter.

I really want one though. I'm leery of ebay, so I gotta look somewhere else...

I wouldn't consider someone who played had a Genesis an outsider. It depended on the types of games you played. Sports and action games on the Genesis were usually superior to the SNES, while the SNES had better adventure and RPG games. By the end of the 16-bit era, the Genesis may have been in 2nd place, but it did it's job...opening the door for companies like Sony and Microsoft to challenge Nintendo's monopoly.

I liked The 7th Saga, made by Enix if my memory serves me correctly, but Final fantasy three was so great, had the most evil bastard ever...kevka. That guy puts modern villans in games to shame.

and yes, rock and roll racing was a whole lotta fun.

It's amazing how fun and addictive that stupid game was. Hell... still is. I bust it out on my emulator once in a while, since I think one of my brothers loaned out my cartridge... I'm not really sure what happened to it.

Although they've already been mentioned my favorites were always these (in no particular order):

Secret of Mana
Final Fantasy III (the only Final Fantasy game I ever got into)
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Super Mario Kart
Super Mario World
Donkey Kong Country
Mario Paint
Sim City
Final Fight is pretty good.


All in all though, SNES is my third favorite system. First is NES. Second is Playstation 2 (only because of it's backwards compatability to my otherwise no. 2 choice), then SNES. They're all great systems though, in my opinion.

was a Genesis kid too. Mom wouldn't let me get an SNES too.
Last November I got an SNES for $16 (Canadian) at EB. Got a Super GameBoy, Mario World 1 and 2, Donkey Kong Country 2, Mario Kart, Super MEtroid, MegaMan X3, Killer Instict, and TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 4!!!!! Me and my friends whip that out all the time. Good warm up before we play CS

You know, it's funny. I recently bought a GBA SP a couple of weeks ago with Metroid Fusion, and I never realized until then how much I miss the simplicity of a good sidescroller.

Games today are all graphics, graphics, graphics, with little emphasis on replayability. You buy them, you play them, you get bored with them, you move onto the next game.

However, even to this day, I am still playing old SNES games, quite simply because they were fun. I really miss my old SNES.

Rock and Roll Racing -Oh man you are right on this one. Im glad they ported it to GBA, cause i never owned it.

Link to the past- Holy balls, what a great awesome game.

Final Fantasy III- This did have a great soundtrack. and it was awesome.

Secret of mana/evermore- These two games were awesome, man was better, and people look evermore over, but it was an awesome game, im glad to see the GBA coming out with so many cool ports/remakes, like sword of mana.

I know there is more, but i must go.
