GameRevolution's Top 25 Super Nintendo Games Of All Time (Full List)

Posted on Friday, August 16 @ 12:24:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
The Super Nintendo was the first video game console I ever owned. As such, it holds a very special place in my heart. Nostalgia aside, I have a feeling I'm not alone in my love for the SNES. Despite advancing technology, the software library of the Big N's second console has held up better than many of those on subsequent platforms. From a slew of amazing RPGs to a plethora of charming platformers, there's so much to love about the Super Nintendo. Here are twenty-five reasons why the console is easily one of gaming's greatest.


25. NBA Jam

"From downtown!" I'll never forget playing this arcade sports game with my pals back in my younger years. I've never been a huge fan of sports games, but NBA Jam was a major exception to that sentiment. Chucking the ball from half court and sinking a basket at the buzzer was insanely thrilling. And remember when you managed to get "on fire" and a flaming basket ball burns right through the netting on the hoop? So awesome.  



24. TMNT: Turtles in Time

I was a huge fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back in the day, and Turtles in Time was an incredible gaming gift to my brother and I. Multiplayer co-op where you can select which turtle you'd like to control, bashing your way through each level, proved to be enormous amounts of fun. Taking the arcade experience and bringing it to the comfort of one's home can't be understated. TMNT: Turtles in Time simply can't be taken for granted. It's one of the most entertaining beat 'em ups you'll ever play. Ever. 



23. Killer Instinct

The Super Nintendo is home to some of the greatest 2D fighters. Killer Instinct is one such game, with a cast of incredibly varied and memorable characters. Not only that, but it added to the breadth of mature content on the SNES. Pummeling your pals to a bloody pulp may sound a bit gruesome, but in the cheesy and oddly endearing context of Killer Instinct it was totally awesome.



22. F-Zero

High-speed racing hit the Super Nintendo at blazing speeds with the arrival of F-Zero. While the visuals may not look like much to write home about today, the sense of speed Nintendo managed to create was unlike anything else at the time. You'll be hard pressed to find another 16-bit experience that will get your adrenaline flowing quite like F-Zero. There's a reason why Nintendo turned it into a franchise and made Captain Falcon an essential member of the Smash Bros. cast.



21. Earthworm Jim

Blending elements of the 2D platforming genre with classic run-and-gun mechanics, Earthworm Jim offered an experience like none other at the time. The game stars an earthworm (coincidentally named Jim) who, equipped with a robot suit, must save Princess What's-Her-Name. Yep, it's goofy, wacky, and all sorts of silly fun. The game may have originated on the Sega Genesis, but the SNES port was quite incredible as well.
