IGN - Top 100 SNES Games [20-1]

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the SNES, we've assembled our picks for the Top 100 SNES games of all time. Our criteria were simple – quality upon release, originality, replayability and impact upon the industry. After fighting with each other over a span of weeks and many, many hours, we managed to dig through our childhood memories – and modern Virtual Console experiences – to arrange our ranking. No doubt you'll have some disagreements. That's why we have comments.

Keep it cool, Koopalings.

a link to the past may just be the best 2d game ever the game is so rich so endorsing and best of all so so fun

IGN just committed some blasphemy right there. Super Metroid wasn't #1..!! And DKC2 ranks SO LOW!!

But otherwise its a good list and the top 6 were expected.

super metriod was amazing but it just didn't do what zelda done for me but i agree with dkc2

Id put super metroid somewhere in my top 10 but for me, chrono trigger, zelda:ALTTP, FFVI, Super Mario world, street fighter 2 turbo,megamanX, super punch out, and terranigma were more memorable.

personally id put chrono trigger number one, but a link to the past being number 1 doesnt bug me because its a masterpiece.

Where was terranigma anyways, such a great game.

Link to the past definitely was the pinnacle of SNES gaming, for me it was a toss up between that and Chrono Trigger and if either was first I would be happy as long as the other was second. I actually agree with this top 20 with the top 5 being 5 of my favorite games and I have played and loved most of the other 15 (especially mario RPG and mario kart).

yey for Super metroid! :)

Evildoomnerd2299d ago

I wouldn't mind seeing either a Super Metroid remastering or remake for the 3DS.

Venox20082299d ago

I would like it in 3D classics 3DS :) and Fusion with Zero mission

Link to the past for the win! Seriously those are some heavy frickin hitters right there..I think i'll bust out my old Snes and play Super Metroid today!

A Link To the Past, even now, is beautiful and fun to play. It deserved its place.

I think FF 2/4 should have been higher than #14.
