UN Squadron. Also, glad to see Mystical Ninja on there, that game rocks!

Wow it has been 20 years hasn't it, good time then for Nintendo to unveil it's console aimed at the core audience. Blackhawk/Blackthorne needs to be on that list as playing a long haired biker guy with a shotgun blasting orcs was cool and it was developed by Blizzard.

Quite the nice list. Props on putting Legend of the Mystical Ninja on there.
 
Tetris Attack deserves to be on such a list.

20 years holy f... that's as old as many college students and to think the GameBoy is as old as typical college graduates.

Can anyone point to something beyond the wiki stating the exact U.S. release date of SNES? I've found different dates all over the interwebs. 
 
This is important to me because I met my closest friend on the day of launch. I saved my allowance forever to get one and a mutual friend wanted him to meet the guy with the SNES. 
 
Thanks.

Toss on Stunt Race FX and that Kirby's Dream Course. 
 
Those games made me happy.
