Best source for SNES games

#1 Posted by wosifat (187 posts) -

Would've put this in the SNES forum, except it's dead.   No a single post.
I have a SNES I got from a friend that was getting rid of his stuff because he was moving.  The only game he had for it was and old NBA Live (don't remember which one,) and I'm not a big sports game fan.  I do, however, have a copy of Secret of Mana that I'm going back through.  There are a couple storers in town that have SNES games, but nothing that really jumps out at me.  Anyone have any good ideas as to where I can get some really good SNES games (don't feel like trying ebay unless there is no other option at all.)  Recommendations for games I should hunt out are also welcome.

The best place to get SNES games online is Ebay and Amazon.com in my experience. Another good way to get them is to go hunting at garage sales and flea markets. Those can be sorta iffy though in terms of what kind of shape the games are in. However, when you find the games in those places you can usually get A LOT of them for very cheap. 
 
Some games I recommend getting are:
Super Mario World
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Super Mario All Stars
Mario Kart
Star Fox
Super Metroid
F-Zero
Stunt Race FX
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
Final Fantasy IV (FF II on the SNES in the USA)
Final Fantasy VI (FF III on the SNES in the USA)
Chrono Trigger
Breath of Fire 2
Street Fighter II
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Donkey Kong Country
Donkey Kong Country 2
Illusion of Gaia
Mystical Ninja
Secret of Evermore
Pocky and Rocky
Harvest Moon
Lufia & The Fortress of Doom
Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals
