The Best SNES Games That People Know and Love
The Super Nintendo Entertainment System or also known as the Super NES was. Without a doubt, one of the most loved consoles in the history of the gaming industry. Released in 1990, the console brought so much joy to gamers and families all over the world. But the console alone can't do anything, it needs great games. Here are some of the best SNES games of all time:
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
The original Legend of Zelda game on the NES was awesome, and this installment of the game on the SNES is even better. The plot of the game focuses on the journey of Link as he travels to save Hyrule and defeat Ganon. This is definitely one of the best SNES games that have ever existed.
The SNES is a Japanese console, and of course a Japanese game has to be on this list. Chrono Trigger is a role-playing game that was created by the dream team of Square Enix: Hironobu Sakaguchi, Yuji Horii and Akira Toriyama. Together they created a massive success as Chrono Trigger was Japan’s best-selling game in 1995, selling more than 2.5 million copies by March 2003 and sold an additional 790 thousand copies by March 2009. The game was so popular years after its release, it got ported to PC and many portable devices as well.
Arguably the most influential game in the 2D action/adventure genre, the game was released in 1994 and receive numerous critical acclaims from players as well as critics. The game features great in-game actions, a great heroine and a huge world to explore. The game also has many concepts that are rather new in the gaming industry like inventory screen or the ability to fire your weapon in all directions.
Super Mario World
After playing the masterpiece of Super Mario Bros. 3, many people doubt that a better Mario game can be developed. Boy the people were so wrong as they get to see and play Super Mario World. The game follows Mario as he goes on a journey to save princess Peach and Dinosaur Land from the hands of the evil Bowser and his children.
Super Street Fighter II Turbo
Also known under the name of Super Street Fighter II Turbo: The Ultimate Championship, this is one of the first competitive fighting game that was ported to the SNES. The game introduced many gameplay elements not available in previous installments of the game such as combination moves for ground and air engagement. While it’s not a very huge success compared to many previous games, it’s still a great game on the SNES home console.
Super Mario Kart
I guess I don’t have to talk too much about this game as it has started one of the best racing franchises in the gaming industry. This is the first Mario racing game on the console as well as being the first installment of the entire franchise. And it was one hell of a game. Even though it’s the first game of the franchise, it became the best-selling game on the SNES. In this game, the players get to control one of the eight characters in the Mario series. You can either play alone with computer-controlled characters or playing with a friend in the multiplayer mode where you will be racing against each other.
Secret of Mana
Another great role-playing game from Square Enix. This title acts as a sequel to Seiken Densetsu. The game takes place in a fantasy universe as the player follow the footstep of three heroes as they try to stop an empire from conquering the world on the magical flying fortress. Despite running on a pretty weak SNES console, the game offers a real time strategy battle. You can also pause in the middle of the battle and still allowed to make decision while pausing. And the most impressive feature of the game is the ability to have a second or third player seamlessly join and quit the battle at any time.
Mega Man X
I think we all remember the old action platformer game Mega Man. It was such a great franchise. And then it got even better with Mega Man X, a spin off of the original Mega Man games and also the First Mega Man game to be in a 16-bit console. The game introduced many new mechanics as well as new characters. The addition of dashing and wall jumping gave the game a brand-new playing experience, allowing the player to interact with every small part on the screen.
Final Fantasy IV
And for the last game of the list, we’ll also be finishing with a role-playing game from Square Enix. The game was released in 1991 and the player will follow the journey of a dark knight name Cecil as he tries to stop the sorcerer Golbez from getting his hands on the magical gems and destroying the entire human world. Unlike many other role-playing games, Final Fantasy IV has a brand new “Active Time Battle” system and give the main characters in the game different classes with different specialties.
