1) Final Fantasy III (VI)
2) Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island
3) Final Fantasy II (IV)
4) The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
5) Super Metroid

One of my least favorite Nintendo consoles, but it did have a handful of really good games on it.

Unfortunately, a large chunk of its most interesting games (Shin Megami Tensei, Clock Tower, Front Mission, Dragon Quest V, etc.) were never localized.

We never had a SNES in my family, but it seems odd to me that we've had quite a few users list their Top 5 etc. games and there's been no mention of Street Fighter II. To me, that's the game the SNES is remembered for the most, along with Super Mario Kart. I never played SMW, DKC, ALttP, Super Metroid, Yoshi's Island etc. at the time.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

The SNES was before my time but I've played some of its games on Virtual Console, Switch Online and the SNES Mini (still need to get round to playing Final Fantasy 6 and Secret of Mana on that). I think my top 5 would be:

1. Donkey Kong Country trilogy
2. Yoshi's Island (though I've mainly played the GBA version)
3. Super Metroid
4. Super Mario World
5. Super Mario RPG

Super Castlevania IV is good too, and though I haven't played it much yet I think Wild Guns is an impressive and overlooked game.

@d0nkeyk0ng_jR To be clear, I've played Super Castlevania IV all the way through, it was Wild Guns I was saying I haven't played much yet. But yes, it's a very good game! I was a bit worried it would be frustrating as it was my first game in the series, but the difficulty curve is pretty well judged for the most part. It does get very hard towards the end though; I was glad to have the save states on the SNES Mini.

The best way to play it is probably the first Castlevania collection on Switch, which has save states as well and obviously also includes several other games.

@Yoshi2 Yes. I modded it to put Donkey Kong Country 2 in it, DKC2 should have been included too

Been playing Super Metroid for the first time recently. What a damn fine game. Can't believe it's taken me this long to give Metroid a proper go as a series.

Hang on to your youthful enthusiasms - you'll be able to use them better when you're older.

@Maximumbeans Honestly Super Metroid is amazing. It was my introduction to the series, and I love it.

@d0nkeyk0ng_jR I can see why, it's very fun. Even when it's at its most challenging it hasn't been stressful like a lot of Metroidvanias can get. I'm almost sad about it because this is part of my own personal project to revisit series that passed me by as a young 'un - Metroid, Zelda, Mega Man, etc. - and I know Super is pretty early in the series so hopefully everything after won't disappoint!

@Maximumbeans Reccomendation: Play Metroid Fusion next. It's pretty similar and has a lot of the same things that make Super Metroid fun.

@d0nkeyk0ng_jR Excellent, thanks for the recommendation! It's on my list ūüėä
