This week marks the 20th anniversary of the release of the Super Nintendo in North America. (According to Nintendo, August 19th is its official birthday, although some stores didn't get it in stock until August 23rd, 1991. History is confusing!) To celebrate this momentous occasion, we here at Destructoid are going to offer a variety of Super Nintendo-related content over the next seven days, starting today with this glorious introduction!

Twenty years.

I will never forget the day I got my Super Nintendo, so not only does this milestone make me feel really old, it brings back a ton of wonderful memories. I will always remember playing Final Fantasy IV on Christmas day, surrounded by still-unopened presents and a family that was pleading for me to put down the controller. Nothing will ever top my first playthrough of now legendary Super Metroid. And who can ever forget walking into a Ghost House and seeing those transparent ghosts for the first time in Super Mario World?

But I should stop there. I could go on for pages about my love for the Super Nintendo. And there is a week’s worth of features to bring you. I will hold back ... for now. BUT MY GOD I LOVE THE SUPER NINTENDO AND WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW!

So, let’s get things started! Tell us what you think of the Super Nintendo. Is it one of your favorite consoles? Do you still play it to this day? Can you believe it was released twenty years ago?

Let the week of celebrating begin!

There are Hawaiian Shirts in Sunset Overdrive!

As we recently learned, Sunset Overdrive lets players protect their genitals with the head of a green kangaroo, which is a very silly idea. But is that silly enough, in this post-Saints Row world? The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.more

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [7/26]

Let's get away for the weekend, just you and me. I know this little place on the coast. Nice restaurant, view of the water from the cliff side. We could probably sleep in the car in the parking lot and hang out on the beach a...more
