Oh I caught the wrong end of the stick, I thought we were on about a proper SNES. I also thought adding to a conversation might be nice as it's how forums tend to keep going..

You can get SNES cart adaptors which have a usb connection so I'd imagine it's possible to use these with a SNES mini if someone's done a little programing for it.

Still I will leave it here seeing as my inputs not wanted.

I can highly recommend 2 retro games that nobody talks about:

1. NES - Faxanadu. This is one of the best hidden gems on the NES. It is very exploration heavy game. The graphics and the soundtrack are also amazing!

2. Mega Drive / Genesis - Bram Stoker's Dracula - This is one of my favorite games as a child! Very good graphics. It is not very well regarded EVEN if someone heard it but for me the game is not about the perfect gameplay but the perfect atmosphere.

Also the soundtrack is ONE OF THE BEST I have heard!

But I WANT you do not play the SNES version. The soundtrack there is TERRIBLE! The Sega version is 100% better!

What are some good 90's games (simulation or arcade) with licensed cars?

This blue eye perceives all things conjoined. The past, the future, and the present. Everything flows and all is connected. This eye is not merely seen reality. It is touching the truth. Open the eye of truth... There is nothing to fear.

@Vinny Gran Turismo is probably my #1 suggestion. Go with GT2. Outside of that it's mostly NASCAR and F1 games to varying degrees of quality. Back in the 90's it was mostly flight-sims that were all the rage as consoles couldn't really simulate realistic physics yet, and PCs just weren't quite there power wise either, but GT really was one of a kind. For arcade any of the Need for Speed games are good choices as they were pretty much the go to AAA licensed arcade racers back then.

@Snakewolf You do realize that that user asked that question 11 years ago and hasn't been active on this forum since 2014.

I remember being super excited for the Hand-drawn Game Guides a few years back and I got the Legend of Zelda manual one and it was truly fantastic. And I was just checking the Kickstarter to see when the Metroid one was going to come out.
Turns out, it was cancelled due to C and D fears. BUT, if you happen to be intuitive you might be able to find it in it’s full hand-drawn glory if you look up “hand-drawn-game-guides-metroid” and go to a certain Archive dot org website. (I dont know if Im allowed to post the link but it’s really not hard to find at all)

Not exactly on topic but couldnt find a better thread for it.

Hope all retro gamers take advantage of these masterpieces!

^ So on the website, under Philip Summers’ (the creators’) account you can find hand drawn manuals for the Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Contra, and Ninja Gaiden.

I guess the last "retro" thing I got was the two Namco carts new for the Evercade.
So it was that, and the Data East and Technos arcade games that were going out of print.

From Technos, I guess the big thing there is Double Dragon? I hear the NES version of DD2 is the much better regarded version... and DD3. I hear it's not a very good game regardless of region but at least the Japanese version is not as dishonorable as the US version (which I assume is the one they used) in being ahead of its time in evil.

As to Data East, I've been warned about Johnny Turbo's versions on Switch using somewhat outdated emulation... wonder if that is the case here.
