My Top 10 SNES Games/Game Series

In my opinion these are some of the best games for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System

10. Super Mario All-Stars - this is pretty much a port of all the Super Mario's from the NES, but this one includes Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels which is the actually sequel to the first Super Mario Bros. This is a nice game it has all the Super Mario Games on one cartridge and the games have been given amped up graphics and a save feature, but the games never lose their old school feel.

9. Super Mario Kart - The first Mario kart game which is an awesome game that has never slowed the fun down since the Mario kart games have been

8. Donkey Kong Country - This is such an awesome Donkey Kong game. The first one introduces Diddy Kong. Then the 2nd game came along and introduced Dixie Kong and just like Donkey Kong Jr. you have to rescue Donkey Kong. In the 3rd game you are introduced to Kiddy Kong this time you have to search of Donkey and Diddy Kong who have who have gone missing and just like Donkey Kong 3 it strays from the series but this time only in difficulty its a lot harder then the first 2.

7. Mega Man X - a solid series that started on the SNES. Everyone thought this was Mega Man 10 until Mega Man X2 Came out then we learned that this was a different Mega Man.

6. Super Metroid - This is the best Metroid game every made.

5. Chrono Trigger - This is another awesome RPG made by Squaresoft (now Square Enix) this is a hard game to find cheep for SNES but it has been re-released on the Nintendo DS and I don't think its changed much and Nintendo my re-release it again on the Wii Virtural Console.

4. Super Castlevania IV - This is one of my most favorite Castlevania games. It's pretty much a remake of the first Castlevania on the NES, but the game is very different the controls are the best in any vintage Castlevania game and the best part is you can whip in any direction.

3. Super Mario World - The first game I every played on the SNES and my favorite vintage Super Mario game in the series (not including Super Mario RPG).

2. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - This is probably the best Zelda game ever it takes everything from the Legend of Zelda on the NES and amps it up with better graphics, more equipment, and more puzzles.

1. Super Mario RPG - This is one of my favorite turn based RPGs and this is the game the got me really into RPGs.

There are many other great games for the SNES. A few games that are on the bubble for me: Stunt Race FX, Tecmo Super Bowl , Final Fantasy II & Final Fantasy III (a.k.a. Final Fantasy IV & Final Fantasy VI which I own on the GBA), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time, Battletoads in Battlemaniacs, Star Fox, E.V.O.: Search for Eden and Super Bomberman. There were many great games on the SNES that are not listed but it is hard to make a top ten list where there are so many great games out there. There was also the Super Gameboy. When that came out it was the first time you could play Gameboy games in color and the best thing about that is you could select the color. They also released Super gameboy packaged games which has set colors for the game and if the game was a two player game you could play two players with the Super Game Boy and that worked great with fighting games on the Game Boy. The only thing I didn't like was that it wasn't full screen, but that was okay because the super game boy was awesome. The SNES is a great system that will lives on side by side with the NES.


  1. What about Chrono Trigger? Not even an honorable mention?

  2. Opps how could I forget Chrono Trigger sorry about that ill have to add that
