A console so great there is no way we could limit it to just ten games. Where will your favorite end up on the list?
Donkey Kong Country was the reason I gave up my Sega Genesis for a Super Nintendo, too great for its time, then Killer Instinc and MK3 came out very close to each other so I had to have them, the sound track for KI was pretty dam cool too.
I use to have that cd. Devo that i lost it:(
that was a FANTASTIC LIST. One of the best i have seen. Every title on there deserved its spot. Lol i remember when star fox graphics were the sh!t. Can't wait to see the top 10
contra 3....I was always curious what that game was...But apparently ive been playing it all my life....but i know it as...Super probotectors, alien rebels.
http://www.retro-games.co.u... what the hell?
Donkey Kong Country 2 was much much better though...seriously.
i will never forget the times i played through turtles in time on the hardest setting with my friend. it kicked so much ass. and f-zero. getting the speed records felt sooo good.
Are you serious?
Putting those arcade/crap games in with a masterpeice like Donkey Kong Country and Yoshi's Island. What a bunch of deuschebags...
I love every game in that list. Although I wish they added Chronotrigger . That game was sick as hell.
I don't understand this.
Those are like NES games, basically. Castlevania was good, but come frickin ON!
Zombies Ate My Neighbors was actually FUN!
If they're going for soundtrack...either put Donkey Kong Country 2 in there or DON'T! It had such an amazing soundtrack!
Meh, My list:
Zombies ate my neighbors
Megaman X, X2
Tales of Phantasia
..... well these are a few...
fk that the top ten if FFVI and Hyper Dimension aren't in it
I like gradius 3 and contra 3 alien war long as those 2 made the list I could careless about the other games. wish those game was on ps3 or the Wii
Think i had all those games back in the day. Snes was the best purchase i ever made, N64 was the worst lol. Mode 7 ftw!
If it doesnt have uniracers onit its a lie!
Leon Kennedy I dont always agree with you but i must on this Zombies ate my neighbours was great fun I really wish monster madness for 360 was as enjoyable. Also can anyone remember if flashback was for snes or just genesis?
TMNT IV: turtles in time not in top 10?? BLASPHEMY!! I just beat it again yesterday. I still play it because it owns so much. Perhaps the best soundtrack for a game ever, as well as amazing gameplay. It is in my top 5 easily, but I can see why someone wouldn't have it so high considering the unbelievably epic amount of hits on the SNES. PS1 had its share, but SNES will always be the best console of all time.
All of those games earned their place, but there was one SNES game of major fame that didn't make the list. The most famous RPG, Final Fantasy III. This game alone was responsible for changing the general face of RPGs. It would be one of the defining RPGs of it's time before FFVII.
By the way i bet theres at least 3 RPG in the top ten, so expect Chrono Trigger, FF3(6) or Secret of Mana to be on top.
And i dont care if they dont, we all know that they deserve it!
And Link To The Past was the 2nd greatest Snes game ever too. p.s. Killer Instinct sucked balls.
You are entitled to your opinion, and I just happen to disagree. Killer Instinct was so much fun for me because I would go over to a friend's house who had it just to play it with him. We'd pop in other games as well, but we never went a single night without playing it. Killer Instinct for SNES wasn't as big to me as Killer Instinct Gold was on N64. KI:Gold may actually be my #1 on N64 list, just because I actually still play it a lot. It had one of the best combat systems. I liked that almost every combo was completely customizable. Ultra combos were always so satisfying to pull off too. I think it is up in the air if KI should be in the top 20, but it'd definitely be in mine. That is just my opinion, though.
Super Metroid & Link to the Past both great games!
