10 Super NES Games You’ll Probably Never Beat

If you’re a gamer “of a certain age”, you may vaguely remember the moment when games went from a grueling gauntlet requiring all your skill and concentration to tackle to a casual, checkpoint-containing, cruise control-encouraging walk in the park.

I beat Jurassic Park multiple times!

Jurassic Park had no save system, so I would leave the console running while I went to school, took breaks. It's not that it's hard, it's just tedious. But I was a Jurassic Park obsessed kid (around 13 when this hit), so I would obsessively scower ever inch of the maps (both 2D and 3D) until I had them memorized.

The Star Wars trilogy, I only beat w the cheat codes.

Sounds just like me. I mapped out the indoor areas on paper, leaving the SNES on for days at a time. But I never finished the game. I collected all the raptor eggs except one. So close !

Neonridr648d ago

oh god, I remember beating JP on SNES and like you said, it was all in one shot.

I dunno about this list though, I beat all the Star Wars games and while some levels were tough, it was easy to get powerups and extra lives and stuff. Maybe set to the hardest settings it was tough. I also beat Contra 3, loved that game to death.

with the exception of Jurassic Park and Prince of Persia, I've beaten every other one of those. It just takes practice and time. Something I had way more of when I was younger.

I wish they would have resurrected and used the Nintendo Power name. I had almost every issue starting from around Mario 3 forward, and at one time had Nintendo Power foldout posters as an upper border on the wall, circling my entire room.

PRIMORDUS2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

I also have well, every issue of Nintendo Power and also some Fun Club Issues before it transformed into Nintendo Power. They are all stacked in a plastic tote lol. Most have probably turned yellow by now. If you would like the whole collection as a torrent there is one here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Da... Torrent magnet link.

Nintendo power name instead would've been cool

Been doing this for quite a while where I live. Order and pay online and specify which store I want to pick up from. Allows them to order exact number of limited editions from suppliers and less issues of staff selling/keeping limited stock for friends.

Just can't see them being around beyond say 2026. They stopped trade ins and the sale of used games and consoles, Ended the Game Elite program, Stopping pre orders in-store. Stores closing and opening up small sections inside sports direct. They stock more toys than games these days. Way over priced compared to others.

-Foxtrot2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

I think is crazy they still score exclusiveness with collectors editions and steelbook preorder bonuses over Amazon or other retailers.

It’s the only reason I still use them to be fair.

ocelot072d ago

Other than when they slashed pre owned games to 50% to get rid of them last month. I only shopped with them once a year and for 1 reason only.

I paid £3 a month game elite. Didn't use any features. Didjy buy anything in store. At the end of the year I got that £36 back i paid over the year plus £5 birthday credit. I thought of it as a little saver for ps+ as I would then buy ps+ or credit with the game elite credit lol.

CRASHBASHUK2d ago

yep its the same for Nottingham game there even a mini game in house of fraser in the same shoping center and even across from each other
love to see how they deal with new console pre-orders games are going more digital as we know but we still need a console to play them on
going to be fun when trying to pre order ps5 pro or the next Nintendo console

PapaBop2d ago

Good riddance, haven't been in to GAME for a good 6-8 years and with good reason. I miss Gamestation, at least I felt like I was walking into a shop for gamers.

ocelot072d ago

I hear you. Game station was so much better. Was really annoyed when game took them over.

Grainger games where very good as well but went out of business.

purple1012d ago

yep. game station was good.

in the uk I buy physical disks but delivered online from

base.com
games365.com
shopto.net
smithstoys.com

etc.

whoever does the best price,

games365 also sells vinyl records, sometimes they have good sale prices too which is a bonus.
