For those reading one of my SNES review blogs for the first time, here is the basic concept:

"While the SNES was a constant presence in my childhood, I never had a large collection of games for it. In fact, many of the games I played I still don't know the names of. It wasn't until I say the uproar over Breath of Fire 6 that I knew I played Breath of Fire 1 in the SNES.

After reading the excellent top 100 SNES games list by IGN:


I decided to go back and play those 100 games and review them. Well, as I looked closer at the list, I realized that there are many genres that did not age well from the SNES (racing, sports) and many other genres that I am simply not good at (shmups, arcade shooters) and others that I need other players to play against for an accurate representation (fighters). Also, I played many of the more well known games such as Final Fantasy and Super Metroid."

This is going to be another legacy review from the forum I first started this task, so I am still embarrassed about showing it here.

Also, here are a number of extra rules for Destructoid:
-If you have any suggestion of a game that is not in the IGN list that I should review, please suggest it.
-Make a bet on each game to check whether Chris Charter played it or not.

Without further ado, here is:

60- Aladdin:
Year: 1993.
Genre: Platformer.
Publisher: Capcom.
Developer: Capcom.


The game can easily be picked up, and it supports a password system for the busy ants around. The graphics are solid, and the music is not annoying.

This a gamer friendly game that would not punish your keyboard controls. And the sentimental value is a plus

Score: 6

Lord Spencerís Score:

Is this another money grabbing scheme from Disney. The answer is yes. Although to a lesser degree than the Lion King. However, since Capcom was responsible for the game, I expected a more solid experiance. This being #60 in IGNís countdown is unfathomable for me. I regret giving the Lion King 7 in my criteria but I will correct the mistake with Aladdin.

Score: 5

Overall: 7/3/8/6/5 27/50

A game plummets to below the 30ís for the first time since 6 games ago. Which symbolizes that my reviews will get tougher, and that games need to rely in more than sentimental value. I am looking for a solid gaming experience, and would punish any game that does not give me one.

The next game that interests me on the list is DKC3 which I already finished 3 times before. It is the third best in the DKC series, and would imagine a 35 score being what it gets.

So I would skip to the quirky mad game Earthworm Jim, which is #57 in IGNís list. Hope I donít regret going into the unknown madness of the worm

Should be crazy.

Stay Tuned

About Lord Spencerone of us since 5:57 PM on 01.12.2014

Hello all, I am Lord Spencer, your friendly neighborhood royalty. Yes, the ancient bloodlines are letting absolutely anyone in these days.

Being the lurker that I am, I have been following Destructoid for more than four years. Well, its 3 AM where I live now, and I just plunged in getting HUGE in the way.

Here is hoping for a fun time.

Oh yes, here is a little more info about me that is probably not as interesting as I think it is:

-I owned and played about 1000+ games.
-I owned and read about 2000+ books (I counted comic books I read as a kid so this is not as impressive as it sounds).
-I absolutely love Legos.

Out of all the games I played, I only regret playing a few. I am a big fan of gaming, and thus I really like most of what I play.

Thanks to the excellent work of community member Dango, now I have a cool infographic of my top 20 games. This list is not my final one, but what I thought off at the moment. If you notice, they are presented in chronological order:

Oh, and here is a link to my blogs:
