Why is it every time I jump onto the forums I see a new thread about somebody wanting SNES game recommendations?

Blackthorne

Out Of This World

Tetris Battle Gaiden

First and foremost: Super Mario World and (or) Super Mario All Stars with Super Mario World.

Second: Everything else!

Honestly: Donkey Kong Country, Mario Kart, Super Metroid, Super Castlevania, Turtle's in Time, Mario RPG and any Squaresoft / Final Fantasy game + Chrono Trigger. (Unless you have a psp/gba/ds Then the ports are cheaper)

It really worries me when no one mentions Lufia 2. It's like the majority of the human race hasn't bothered playing such an amazing game.

That would be 11th on my list.

TETRIS BATTLE GAIDEN.

Make sure you play with people.

I thought everyone knew what the great Super Nintendo games were by now? It's not like it's an obscure system.

Anything from egg's link is worth a buy. Almost every game in the top 50 deserves to be there. My favorite SNES games are Super Mario World, Doknkey Kong Country, and Secret of Mana. I never played Earthbound and since Nintendo won't ever rerelease it I guess I never will.

I want to put my backing behind Super Metroid as well. It's worth the price.

Earthbound is amazing, but I have a more difficult time justifying the cost.

You should probably just start with Super Mario World.

Super Mario World
Mega Man X
Donkey Kong Country
Chrono Trigger
Final Fantasy III 
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time
Earthbound (Personally I think this game is overrated as hell, but it is still really unique and different.)
Super Mario All-Stars
Great Battle IV (If you can play Super Famicom games)

Why are people saying Donkey Kong Country 2? The original is way better!

Nope. DKC 2 > DKC >>> DKC3 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> DK64

DKC:R would be up there if not for the required waggle. But DKC2 is the king of those games. From level designs, music, and difficulty. Just a superb game.

ebay, craigslist, local pawn shop.

ALL OF THE GAMES.

#25 Posted by RVonE (4794 posts) -

Mega Man X. Really.

If you got that one just buy the Marios and the Zeldas and go from there.

Or, all of the games.

Super Punch-Out

This Earthbound looks pretty cheap.

Seriously though, I highly recommend Earthbound if you can find it for an acceptable price. I also really enjoyed the Breath of Fire games on SNES, and as mentioned by others, Chrono Trigger. Secret of Mana is great too. Oh...and Super Mario RPG. I have no idea how hard/easy it is to find copies of any of those.
