Super NES games

The Super NES is one of my all time favorite gaming systems. It overclassed the Sega Mega Drive by having a library of most memorable games. Although Sega had Sonic, The SNES had:

1.StarFox

This was the world's first console game that used a chip to allow for realtime 3d physics in the game, making it the world's first console to not use pre-rendered 3d graphics. Quite a revolution. And it has furry characters as well!

2.Super Metroid

Took the Metroid formula to an entirely new level. This is one of the most memorable games on the SNES and it had an atmosphere few games have managed to successfully replicate.

3.Super Mario World

Albeit being fairly simplistic, childish and less advanced than Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario World is one of the most addictive games I remember from my childhood. It had action, catchy music, and cool characters.

4.B.O.B.

B.O.B. is an action game with humor. To go to a date with his babe, the alien cyborg B.O.B. takes his father's car and crashes it on a planetoid. In search of new cars he has to fight his way to the other side of the planetoid through various bases. A game with lots of action, crazy powerups, excellent graphics and a priceless ending. The SNES version is also noteworthy for having much better graphical quality than the Sega MegaDrive version.

5.X-Zone

The Super Scope is somewhat of a rarity. Not many people bought it because it sucked battery power and had a rumor for being uncomfortable. Although, we still owned one and X-Zone was the game I'd play the most with my lightgun. X-Zone has awesome, pumping rock/techno music, fluid and deep graphics, and a cool futuristic setting. A highly underrated game in my most honest opinion.

I would like to know, what are y o u r best gaming memories of this wonderful invention from the land of anime and low-price WAP?

The SNES has so many good games...

E.V.O.: Search for Eden is super fun. Some complain that it's redundant but I still like it a lot. And it gets me excited about Spore. :)

I've got really good memories of Doom. A friend and spent many hours passing the controller back and forth to each other- he'd solve the puzzles and I'd then charge and blast the holy hell out of whatever was behind the door he just opened. All night long, way into early morning. Good times! :lol:

(conversations with me about games will inevitably revert back to either Doom or Half-Life... I'm so ~nostalgic!~)

Zombies Ate My Neighbors was fun, Water World was so bad that it was fun. Act Raiser and Shadowrun I both liked but never finished. I start a lot of games and don't finish them immediately, for various reasons...

I definitely agree with you about Metroid. Even with the original one there's something so moody about the atmosphere and music of the game.

And yeah, the Mario franchise is cutesy but I still enjoy the games. Never got into Sonic at all. I think I played one Sonic game and it got on my nerves.

And there are some really weird Japanese-only releases out there for the SNES too. Bastard!! comes to mind. Strange game with very questionable translation to English. I have two roms I've been really curious about, mainly due to the names- "Love Quest" and "Power of the Hired". For some reason it would really amuse me if the latter was about a Day in the Life of a Salaryman... but alas, both are in Japanese and I haven't seen any translations to English.

The best memories I have concerning gaming however, are linked to the N64. Especially with Goldeneye, Turok (lots of Turok- it's a mediocre franchise I guess but I still love it so), and Zelda. I know, I know- common titles but still.

I'll associate the Water Temple in Ocarina from here on out with Nierika by Dead Can Dance, as my best friend and I were crammed in her small room listening to it... she was playing Zork on the computer and I was playing Ocarina. It was so long ago but I remember vividly the cool temperature that night, how we kept the window open and the windchimes clinked from time to time with the breeze. This nice idyllic memory is punctuated, however, from time to time by the remembrances of my cursing like a sailor and being tempted to pitch the controller to the wall because the Water Temple was *hard*!

Isn't sensory memory such a strange thing sometimes...

(woo- tangent! ;) )

See, I could learn a lot from you- you know waaay more about the history than I do. So keep posting about it, because I enjoy reading it. :D

That is quite a list, ilex011. I am happy to see other people having the same close relationship to the Super Nintendo.

The Doom port on SNES was heavily criticized for being overly censored and buggy, but I consider it at least better than the other 16 bit port on Sega's 32x because the music is much better on the SNES version.

I was never a heavy N64 fan because we never could afford one, so while other kids would play N64 games and PlayStation, I would still stick to my SNES. That is maybe why I have that close relationship to it.

Most of the games you mention are games I have never or rarely played. We seem to have totally different game experiences, even if we are talking about the same console. Says something about how big its library is.

Doom 64 was the best for consoles, I think. But I say that having played Doom 3 on PC (I prefer my shooters on PC), so I dunno if D3 is better. But what I especially liked about Doom 64 was how dark and (again) moody it was. Really creeped me out. I seem to remember jumping at some points- I like to play scary games in dark rooms. This is especially effective with Silent Hill. ;)

I got an N64 much later after it was initially released, as I usually do with consoles. I don't have a PS3 or an XBox 360 *or* a Wii. Really would like a Wii though. Played it one evening and had a lot of fun. Felt kind of stupid waving a controller around at first though, heh.

Even with games I wait a long time as well, usually. The only exception I can think of is Doom 3- I got it about a week or so after it was released. I waited SO long for that game! And enjoyed every minute of it too.

Of the game, I mean... not the waiting, heh...

Doom 3 never runs optimal on my computer so I don't give a damn about it anymore to be quite honest.

I'm a bigger fan of the older games. Not because of any memories necessarily(I am only 19 years old), but because they seem to be more original and not so focused on realism and/or graphics.

I bought a new video card for it- but it was the video card that was designed for the Half Life 2 engine! Well which ultimately was fine- I also got HL2. Doom 3 ran well but got a little glitchy during some battles.

Frankly, I don't give a rat's ass about graphics all that much- though I do ooh and aah if they are well-done with much realism, for me it's all about the gameplay. Smoke and mirrors can't compensate for a crappy game- hopefully that was learned with Turok Evolution. GOD that game SUCKED so much. Was a visually beautiful game, but jesus the gameplay was just horrendous.

But yeah, I agree with you- the majority of games lately seem to really be devoid of that certain something (or somethings) that the older games definitely had.

I didn't get much sleep last night and am very grouchy and very tired as a result, so forgive me for not going into detail with that penultimate paragraph. :O

You're quite lucky then. I appreciate games that have a simple game play and a simple story. Which is probably why doom is one of my all time favorite games, along with Space Invaders and the other classic ones.

I really like the simplicity of amateur adventure games. Limited resources really bring out imagination and creativity.

I also find myself meandering back to text adventures, too. Legendary Zork!

ps- for really, *really* simple graphics but excellent (and often really funny) gameplaycheck out Kingdom of Loathing. It's an RPG but it's more or less taking the piss from the genre.

If you're too late, you have to blow lots of dust off old topics... Maybe it's Necrothreading. But...

I grew up with the SNES RPGs and I still love them. Recently I started to play some of them again in English, because the german translators from Großostheim destroyed the game atmosphere with their horrible translation. In "Secret of Evermore a character named "Elizabeth" turned into "Zora Zottelzopf"... WTF did they do?!

My favorites:


Secret of Mana

It was my first SNES RPG. I borrowed it for 3 days from the video store - and bought it instantly after three days of non-stop-gaming.
Unfortunately it's one of these bad translated games, where "Heino" and "Lindenstraße" were put into a serious scenario. (Why, dammit?)
Nonetheless a good RPG. Loved the magic system!
And the soundtrack... "Dark Star" Aww... Nostalgia! *_*




Terranigma

Adorable RPG with well formulated characters. It's not that bad translated, but I guess that a lot of idioms got lost...




Illusion of Time

It was difficult like hell. That's why I hated it.
It combined real mythologies and places with a fictional story. That's why I loved it.




Lufia (Rise of the Sinistrals)

It was the second part of a story, but it was the only episode which was released in Germany.
I enjoyed it although it had turn-based fights. The "Ancient cave" with its random generated rooms was really addicting.




This were my 4 favourite SNES RPGs. There are more, but I'm tired. ^^
