    Hey guys, the bug hit me, and i'm finally getting the SNES I've always wanted but never got around to /couldn't afford (different times). I'm trying to get a good system, with some good games. There's an auction that I'm going to battle for today probably.
    It's not the new school snes console, that looked good, but I found one with the box (not ready to spend enough to get a new unused console, but that sounds nice[​IMG]
    Maybe this question should be in VGSoftware, but what were your top ten games for SNES?
    Does anyone here have advice, or a system that they want to sell?
    I'm really looking forward to jamming on SNES again...

    Add Chrono Trigger and Zelda and the above list is perfect.

    I'd add Final Fantasy 2 to that list (although the PSX port is much better), as well as Super Punch Out.

    Good luck trying to find some of them though. The RPGs especially will run you a LOT, since some of them are pretty rare. I've seen FF2 and 3 going for over $100 each around here. That being said though, I did get Mario RPG from a video store for $5 last year, so there are still games out there.

    And no, my copies aren't for sale either. Good luck with the search!

    I'll second the others, but don't forget:

    Donkey Kong Country (and 2 and 3)
    F-Zero
    Killer Instinct
    Mortal Kombat II
    SimCity
    Super Castlevania IV

    Also, get a Game Genie and a Super Game Boy!

    Tecmo Super Bowl
    Super Tennis
    Super Baseball Simulator 1.000

    Would be my additions to the list in the sporting venue.

    Good recommendations Glenn!!
    Baseball Simulator 1.000 was/is a great game!
    Definitely Rock'n Roll Racing
    If I were to buy a SNES, which I want to badly, the first game I would get would be Super Black Bass. Man I loved that game!! [​IMG]

    F-Zero is a must!! It's the SNES game I play the most by far.

    I was also add the Super Star Wars series and Super Ghouls and Ghosts.

    Doh! How could I forget Zelda!?! Especially that Zelda?!? Easily the best Zelda ever made.

    Oh...I'm a failure....

    Super R-Type is awesome
    Illusion of Gaia
    If you really want some cool stuff get a Super Game Boy. That way you can get Metroid II and Zelda:Links Awakening plus some other great gameboy games.
    Tetris& Dr. Mario(one cartridge, two great games!)
    Kirby's Avalanche(another great puzzle game)
    Tetris Attack(Pokemon Puzzle League on N64 is great too!)
    Yoshi's Cookie
    Mega Man X 1-3(2 and 3 are rare. Good luck)
    Lufia series
    Breath of Fire series
    Shadowrun

    So, I think we all agree that there are a ton of good SNES games to get with a system.
    Heck, this thread has made me think about going out and picking up a few more of these. [​IMG]

    Well, I won the auction last night, with not too much fighting, with these games for 36 bucks (48 w/shipping) and the unit comes with the original box:
    Donkey Kong Country,
    Super Mario World,
    F-Zero
    Starfox
    Street Fighter 2
    NBA Jam
    Super R-Type
    Now, I'm heading off to the pawn shops, then ebay to pick up the rest (Zelda, Super Metroid, MK2 first!, then Contra III, etc...). Thank you for all the suggestions. I'm really looking forward to this. Right now, there's a brand new new-type snes console up there for 60. it was tempting to me (to put up in the closet for posterity) but for now, this was a good set. Someone should nab that one though. There's lots of systems out there, just find one with a good game selection and grab it.

    ps: anyone ever play Jaki Crush? Really bizzare Japanese pinball/demon/I don't know what game. Super fun, I played it at a friends house in college, and I want to find the cart.

    Great price, but he/she's making a pretty profit on shipping. Still much better than if you bought it seperately at Funcoland.
    One more game I forgot to mention is Super Bomberman 2.

    Another thumbs up for Super Bomberman 2, especially if you have any other people to play it with. Did anyone mention Secret of Mana??! A worthy Square game, and it hasn't been ported to any other console like FF2/FF3/Chrono Trigger.

    If you can find it, I definitely recommend you pick up METAL WARRIORS at all costs, for the most intense 2-D two-player battles you'll ever have. I still play it every time I have friends over. The main game fun and challenging too.
