Weirdness: Here's a Nine-Hour Video of Every SNES Start Screen

You know you want to...
Back in January, YouTube user NicksplosionFX made a three-hour video of every NES start screen — well, a lot of them, arguments aside. Now he's back for the Super Nintendo edition, clocking in at just over nine hours. It's in alphabetical order if you want to skip straight to your favourite game, but true fans will surely sit and watch the entire masterpiece.
The fact that the SNES edition is three times the length of its NES counterpart goes to show how massive the Super Nintendo library is, as well as how much longer and more cinematic the 16-bit games' intro sequences are compared to their NES predecessors. The 16-bit start screens are certainly much more fun to watch than the occasionally drab 8-bit NES equivalents.
Game quality aside, which SNES title has your favourite start screen? And how long will it take for someone to find a missing game in this nine-hour monster of a video?
