My First SNES

After growing up pretty much without video games until the Playstation era, I finally got my first SNES and hooked it up to my TV and verified it's working. I've got Super Mario World, Shadowrun, Dr Mario and Tetris, and a collection of fighting games (Mortal Kombat 1-3, Killer Instinct, Street Fighter II).

Apart from Earthbound (not shelling out $100+ on the secondary market), Chrono Trigger, and Link to the Past (played those via DS) - what do I HAVE to play?

Super Metroid might just be the greatest game ever made, so I'd say it qualifies. U.N. Squadron is also pretty great.

I would rank Super Metroid as one of the best games ever made too.

Super Mario All Stars should be in everybody's collection.

Super Metroid is a must. I'd also say Illusion of Gaia.

Yoshi's Island. Every single level of that game is unique. They made a DS remake though, so you have options there.

Donkey Kong Country. The whole series is great, but the first one is a must.

E.V.O an rpg about evolution!
Uncharted Waters: New Horizons
Demons Crest animation is wonderful

Of course all the games mentioned in this thread are great as well, these games just might not be as well heard of.

They made a GBA remake, the DS one is a sequel.
