As we all know, the Super Nintendo is arguably the greatest video game console ever
made, and is personally my favorite. I figured I would write my own Top Ten favorite SNES
games and why I like them.
Number 10: Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest
The first RPG I ever played. A lot of people downright hated this game, but my friends and
I loved it. Still do, actually. This game introduced to my once favorite genre: the RPG. The
storyline was very basic, and the game was very linear, but the music was fucking insane.
The final boss music is quite possibly some of the best music ever. FUCKING METAL!! This
game holds a special place in my heart, and my Top 10 wouldn't be complete without it.
Number 9: Secret of Evermore
If you played Evermore, then you know easily why it's in the place of the overrated Secret
of Mana. I played Evermore before Mana, and when I heard that Mana was better, I was
really excited. I played Mana, and still thought Evermore was easily one hundred times
better. Awesome characters, charming, simple storyline, fantastic music, and an awesome
companion that makes the term 'mans best friend' quite true. I love this game, and it easily
deserves its spot on my Top 10.
Number 8: Bahamut Lagoon
I bet a lot of you are saying "What?" Yeah, this game unfortunately was never released
here in the States (probably would be higher on my list if it was), but it is incredible. It is
probably one of, if not, the best strategy RPG ever created. This game had an incredible
story line, music, characters, and not to mention the Dragon Raising system. You would
feed your dragons certain things to increase certain stats, would in turn make them evolve
into different types of dragons. The system was so deep and so awesome, and I realized
the game was so good that I just needed to own the cart. I've beaten the game and played
through it a couple of times, even in Japanese the game is awesome. Seriously, play this
game if you haven't. English patches are all over the net. I hope this gets a rerelease on
Number 7: Mega Man X
The evolution of Mega Man came with a bang. This is probably by far one of the greatest
Mega Man games ever created, and it brought the Blue Bomber into glorious 16 bit, to top it
all off. This game featured awesome music, armor upgrades, a more bad ass Mega Man,
and a dismal future. Oh, and of course... Zero. This game is the definition of side scrolling
shoot up glory at its best. When it was released, I thought it was Mega Man 10. Fun fact!
Number 6: Super Mario World
What can I say? I don't have as much of a history as most with this game, but I still love it.
It's Mario, it's two players, it's pure fun, and the yellow cape is the best thing they ever
created (to only get rid of it in future installments). Mario also had a spin jump for extra
damage against certain enemies. This game didn't play, a very fun experience. Also
introduced Yoshi, who back then was awesome, until he turned gay.
Number 5: Super Mario RPG
ZOMG! My favorite genre, featuring one of my favorite characters. This game had pure
PWN all over it. I remember reading the same article in GamePro about this game OVER
and OVER again for about two months until its release. This game even made me put aside
death in the family. I didn't care for anything except this game, and with good reason. This
is by far one of the greatest RPGs EVER! The graphics were incredible, the story line was
fun, and the characters and world was just plain enjoyable. I love this game.
Number 4: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
When I finally acquired a Super Nintendo, this was the game bundled with it. Let me tell
you, one of the best Zelda games ever made. This game was probably the first huge game
I ever played. The music was great, the dungeons were intense, the boss battles were
awesome. This game has it all, in spades. This, in my opinion is the first incredible Zelda
game in the series. I don't really like the first one that much.
Number 3: Chrono Trigger
My third favorite SNES game, and third favorite RPG of all time. I received this game as a
present for getting second honors in the fourth grade, and boy was it worth it. This was the
most expensive SNES cartridge released. At the time it was 80 dollars, now I think the cart
goes for even more than that if you were to try and find it today. This game rules. Time
travel, awesome characters, incredible music, fantastic cast and the most unique story.
Chrono Cross doesn't even hold a candle to its predecessor. This game just straight up
Number 2: Final Fantasy IV (II in America at the time)
Number One RPG ever made, period. This isn't even up for debate. My lord, this game is
incredible. Amazing plot twists, unforgettable characters, and a score that destroys all. This
game had love triangles, best friends betraying one another, death to main characters (Eat
your heart out FF7), and awesome villains. Golbez is one of the greatest villains, if not the
greatest. This game is by far the most excellent RPG ever made, and the first game to
evolve Final Fantasy into the 16 bit era. This game is one of the most incredible feats for
mankind to achieve. Period, The End.
Number 1: Super Metroid
My all time favorite SNES and all time favorite game ever made, Super Metroid earns its
spot in my line up as number one in spades. I have beaten this game at least 200 times in
my life, and I still can't get enough of it. There's a million and one ways you can play this
game, and always new challenges and secrets that let me put my skills to the ultimate test.
The bosses are huge and difficult. The music is incredible. The atmosphere is perfect. Super
Metroid is the epitome of perfection in video games.
