@Cobalt Already got Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter, it's arguably my favorite entry despite how much it deviates from other entries. Not sure about Musashi: Samurai Legend, read/watched some reviews that were mostly negative about it but I plan to start with Brave Fencer Musashi for the PS1 first and I'll consider looking into the sequel later. Blood Will Tell looks like a fun game, but it might take a while for me to get due to its high price.

Thanks for your help.

How are Ape Escape 2 and 3 for the PS2?

@Vinny I've heard they're excellent, though I have yet to play either (still gotta get the original first).

@ReaderRagfish The only game in the series I've played a bit of was the PSP version of the original (On the Loose), but it seems it's kinda different from the original since they reworked the controls to take account of the single analog stick.

Glover for the Nintendo 64. It's graphics... I guess were on par with Kazzooie.
Its playstyle was unique, sometimes infuriating. It deserved a series of game releases after the initial title for sure.
FYI I'd die to smack some fools around as Glover on Melee.

I'm looking for SNES recommendations for games suitable for young kids (one's 7,
one's nearing 5), especially 2-player games they can play simultaneously.

We're going on a trip soon and I'm thinking of taking my SNES Mini as a bad weather boredom backup for them. I have a set of SNES roms, but I'm not that familiar with the library.

(Gonna give this thread a shot, but if it doesn't reap rewards I may start a more specific, short-term thread).

Have you tried Great Circus Mystery Starring Mickey and Minnie (AKA Magical Quest 2)? Really solid 2-player simultaneous co-op platformer that's designed to be easy enough for kids. I played it a lot with siblings and friends as a kid. If they like that you can get the fan translation of the J-only Magical Quest 3 starring Mickey and Donald. Incidentally, Magical Quest 1 is single player, sadly.

Of course classics like Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario World are in the conversation. They might be too young for aggressive action games like Contra 3 or King of Dragons but those are great for co-op too. Goof Troop and Secret of Mana are good as well but may be too complicated for them.

@BougieBeetle Magical Quest 2 is certainly new to me, and from a quick view on Youtube I'd agree, it does look like a very solid classic 90s platformer - I'll defo give that one a shot - thanks.

More suggestions welcome.

@gcunit NBA Jam would probably be really good. Very fun basketball game with more emphasis on arcade gameplay than realism.

Super Bomberman is also a good choice. It has both a co op mode and a battle mode. Bomberman is really simple and fun, pretty much anyone can enjoy it (even my mom).

Super Mario Kart might be good too. If they've played the more modern ones they might be too spoiled but I still enjoyed it as a kid who had Mario Kart 64 playing on my cousin's SNES.
