Great Super NES Games

The Super Nintendo produced many solid titles but, the ten on the list below stand out for many different reasons. Please feel free to leave your opinions on my list at the bottom of this page.

1. Super Contra (1995): This is the second in the series and it's one or two player. Your a commando in this side scrolling shooter game. Improved graphics, sound and levels make this the best of the series. Your player shoots a gun with unlimited ammo and you can get power ups that make your weapon very dangerous. Each stage has a big boss that you have to blast through.

2. Dirt Racer (1995): In this game you race monster trucks around different tracks with many obstacles in your way during the racing. The sound effects are fabulous in this game and the monster trucks handle really well. You can run over the top of other cars and trucks with your beast of a ride and leave nothing but destruction in your path.

3. Earthworm Jim (1994): This is a run and gun side scroller where you play as Earthworm Jim. Your armor increases as you advance. There are many secrets in this game that allow you to play extra levels and get power ups to make your weaponry even more fierce. It's a rated E for everyone game and it's fun to play as well as funny with laughter and action going hand in hand.

4. Inspector Gadget (1993): Based on the film of the same name with video clips in between missions. Your character has spring legs and arms and even his hat does tricks. You have to solve crimes but, your on a time limit so no fooling around in this game.

5. Jurassic Park (1993): Jurassic Park is based on the film with clips and a similar plot . Watch out cause the T Rex bites bodies in half. Your equipped with guns and in some levels you're in a jeep and in others your on foot in the jungle dodging animals from the prehistoric era.

All of the NFL Teams are featured in this game which is two player and features career mode and you can build a teammate. The player can spin, high step, stiff arm and dive while running with the football on the gridiron.

7. Mega Man X (1994) In the tenth installment of this game Mrgaman has many new challenges and new enemies to deal with in this side scrolling shooter action adventure game. You can get your fireball enhanced but otherwise it's like the original.

8. Robocop 3 (1992) In this game RoboCop has to deal with more advanced and larger machines, not to mention the human criminals in the city. You have a pistol and a police car to begin with but more advanced weapons are awarded as the game progresses.

Nintendo's Best Characters

Nintendo has had some truly classic characters so it was very hard to choose. This list is very subjective and it's my top five. Mario is the obvious choice in most folks mind for the number one slot.

2. Luigi ( Super Mario Brothers)

3. Link (The Legend of Zelda)

4. Scorpion (Mortal Kombat)
