A "SNES-talgia" attack

So recently i was playing some blops when I thought about it for a second and realized that i was sick of current gen games, I had a hanker in for some old school stuff, so i headed over to Ebay and sure enough made some purchases. The bulk of which can be seen here:  
 
  

     
Needless to say, its been a refreshing break from newer gen titles. I am about 3/4th's through Super Mario World, very addictive, could play that for hours and a couple hours in to Final Fantasy 2.  Needless to say, I'm looking forward to going back through these classics as an adult and see if i can see things a little differently as opposed to when i was in the 9-13 age range. How often do you guys go back and replay older games? Any recommendations for the Snes?

Hmm, for the snes... Front Mission is amazing, Super Mario RPG of course. Bahamut Lagoon is also really great, though I don't think that game ever came out in english... can't remember. It was fan translated long long ago.
 
You should bust through Star Fox as well, that game is dope, but kind of short.
 
Uhhh... Hmm... Donkey Kong? Oh, Zelda! A link to the past is great.

Juest got most of them! few i'd liked to add (some of these were personal favorites) and one i wish i could get rid of, Secret of Evermore, that game might have worst magic system ever created.
 
Lufia 2, Mega Man X, Harvest Moon, Soul Blazer, Earthbound, F-Zero, 7th Saga, Legend of the Mystical Ninja, Tetris Attack, U.N. Squadron 
 
but if you got only 1 game mentioned so far in this thread i hope its Secret of Mana! that game is superb and there hasn't been a remake on anything, i think ... maybe wonderswan?
