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 failsto disappoint.
19.Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
There are only a few games that occupied more of my time thanDonkey 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 aboutthe sequel toDKC. 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 IVlived 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 tohunt down Dracula?
17.Final Fantasy II

The game introduced the ActiveTimeBattle system, which proved to be a staple in subsequent entries. Not only that, but the addition of in-depth character classes only made theFinal Fantasyformula all the more engaging.
16.Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
The originalSuper Mario Worldwas (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 subtitledYoshi's Islandafter all—by tasking the green dinosaur with escorting baby Mario safely through each level. It's weird, different, and charming. A must play.
