FEATURED VOXPOP maca2kx Metal Gear Solid was a watershed moment in gaming for me. The graphics, at the time, were phenomenal; the story was winding and engaging; the gameplay was sharp and not above breaking the fourth wall when appropriate. It’s one of the few titles where the number of times I’ve...

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

Posted on Friday, August 16 @ 12:24:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


20. Star Fox

Nintendo's animal-filled space-battling flight game first got its wings on the Super Nintendo, and boy did it serve up a memorable experience unlike anything else available on the SNES. Star Fox included the Super FX chip, which allowed for the use of 3D visuals, making it the first Nintendo game to use such a mind-blowing visual style. Blasting baddies from the comfort of a flying vessel never fails to disappoint.



19. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

There are only a few games that occupied more of my time than Donkey Kong Country 2. My brother and I would play this game for hours on end. I remember going back to replay the mine cart levels over and over and over again. With such expert level design, rich with gorgeous art and varied environments, there's so much to love about the sequel to DKC. The sheer awesomeness of Trixie's hair spinning move cannot be understated.



18. Super Castlevania IV
 

The Castlevania series made quite an impact when it first launched on the NES and the fourth installment was no slouch either. Super Castlevania IV lived up to fans' high expectations, delivering a side-scrolling action platforming experience unlike anything else available on the SNES. Fighting your way through a slew of monsters as Simon Belmont was as awesome as one would expect. I mean, who wouldn't want to hunt down Dracula? 



17. Final Fantasy II

Not to be confused with the Japanese release, the localized version of Final Fantasy II is actually a retitled version of the Japanese RPG Final Fantasy IV. Naming confusion aside, Final Fantasy II is one fine piece of role-playing magnificence. The game introduced the Active Time Battle system, which proved to be a staple in subsequent entries. Not only that, but the addition of in-depth character classes only made the Final Fantasy formula all the more engaging. 



16. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island


The original Super Mario World was (and still is) a masterpiece among 2D platformers, so when Nintendo released a sequel, the bar was unbelievably high. Instead of playing it safe, however, Nintendo made some really bold changes, including a completely new art style that's all sorts of whimsical. If that weren't enough, the game places a much larger emphasis on Yoshi—it is subtitled Yoshi's Island after all—by tasking the green dinosaur with escorting baby Mario safely through each level. It's weird, different, and charming. A must play.
