Non-Fiction Gaming writer The MacWha is at it again with a top 5 list. This time going back to the SNES in all its glory.
Aladdin should have made the list
Wow dude, I thought I was the only person that thought Aladdin was a great game! I know that it destroyed the Genesis version hands down; the animations, textures and lighting were phenomenal at that time... Another title that I believe was made by Enix was Actraiser which was one of the best JRPG's and games to ever come out on the SNES. Here's a reference in case your interested.
It is more a matter of preference but the larger concensus is that the Genesis version of aladdin was better. And in my personal experience (I have both) i agree. The SNES version had smoother visuals which some people prefered but the Genesis version used the actual disney animations. The Genesis version was also more action orientated, you had a sword you could fight with. The SNES version was closer to Mario Bro's where you actually had to jump on enemies heads to fight them. The Genesis version had faster/smoother controls, less clunky feel to the movement. The music was also much better on the Genesis version. Alot more of the original aladdin theme music in it than in the SNES version. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
WOW!!!! NO SUPER METROID!?!?! To this day one of the best games I've ever played. If anyone asked me what game needs a remake it would be SM!
Dude that should've been a no brainer! I didn't mention Super Metroid because I feel that it should be #1 on any gamers list! Oh and I don't like this article because the SNES had way to many amazingly great titles to only have a top 5, minimum should be top 20...
this list is fail, No Super Metroid!? No Chrono trigger..No FFVI!?
Where is: Aladdin , Chrono Trigger , Perhaps a FF game. Kart & World belong on there... Not so sure about Turtles in time although it's a solid game.
Lol to be honest, Alladin took my number four spot on my upcoming Genisis one. I never played the SNES version
Oh, and I never liked the Metroid games, don't know why, just never got into em
No home improvement or wayne's world? FAIL lol jk
My 5 in no specific order: Super Metroid Contra III: The Alien Wars Super Mario Kart Zelda: A Link to the Past Super Mario World
I still have mario world, mario kart and turtles 4. I love all those games
Agree Super Mario World and Zelda were both great, but not in my top 5 though. My top 5 would have been: 5. Castlevania IV 4. Super Ghouls N' Ghosts 3. Donkey Kong Country (1 & 2 were great) 2. Final Fantasy II (IV in Japan) 1. Super Metroid
>No Super Metroid >No Final Fantasy 3 / VI >No Chrono Trigger
>No Castlevania 4 >No Secret of Mana >No Earthbound
Castlevania without a doubt
Wish they'd have done a top ten to squeeze in some donkey kong, but its hard to argue with their list.
For me this is a hard one to call. There were so many good games on the snes. Fzero, super star wars, Aladdin, street fighter 2 turbo, star wing Metroid and many more. A great console with many greatgames.
chrono trigger secret of mana final fantasy 2 (us) breath of fire 2 dragonball z (jp)
Yeah Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, FFII & FFIII and Breath of Fire II were all RPGs I loved. SNES was an RPG powerhouse.
Personal top 5: Mario RPG Zelda LTTP Chrono Trigger Secret of Mana Final Fantasy III (VI) No particular order.
