The lights are on
Hello gameinformer community, I plan on purchasing a SNES and since I didn't grow up in the video game era when this console was around I am unknowing of the great games for this system. So I guess I am asking what games would you recommend that I play and don't miss out on.
I enjoy playing most RPG games, as well as JRPGS.
I like most sidescrollers games and action games.
Any recommendations would be much appreciated and thank you forum.
Super Metroid is tied for the second best game of all time and far and away the best SNES game ever, IMO. MUST PLAY, you will love it. Also has one of the best soundtracks and final boss battles ever made. Such a genius game that it is not impacted by time, meaning it does not age. It seems like it could have been a new release on PSN last week.
Other great games on SNES:
Super Mario World 1 and 2
Super Castlevania 4
Super Punch Out
Secret of Mana
Final Fantasy 2 and 3
Zelda: Link to the Past
Super Mario RPG
NBA Live '95
Donkey Kong Country
Super Ghols n Ghosts
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
Turtles in Time
