FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

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

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



15. Super Mario All-Stars

The original Super Mario Bros. games on NES are some of the most iconic, influential 2D platformers in existence. Super Mario All-Stars took those beloved classics and spruced them up with improved visuals. With the same great gameplay coupled with a fresh coat of 16-bit paint, All-Stars quickly became the de facto place to experience some of the greatest NES games of all time. The inclusion of The Lost Levels was pretty awesome too.

14. Earthbound

This wacky role-playing game may not have done all that well sales-wise when it first launched outside of Japan, but boy has it rose in popularity since. Earthbound (aka Mother 2) is the very definition of a cult classic, giving gamers an offbeat experience that went criminally undercooked upon release. It has since become regarded as one of the greatest RPGs on the SNES, which is no easy feat. Thankfully this super rare game is now available on the WIi U Virtual Console.



13. Super Street Fighter II Turbo

2D fighters don't get much better than Super Street Fighter II Turbo. This super smooth fighter from Capcom is highly regarded among fans of the genre, and rightly so. With a cast of diverse characters each with their own strengths and weaknesses, Super Street Fighter II offered enough variety while still keeping the experience as balanced and competitive as possible. No dignified fighting fan should be without this game.



12. Super Mario Kart

Ah, Super Mario Kart, how I love thee. Another great time sink for my brother and I, this incredible kart racing game is easily my favorite in the series. From the insanely intense battle mode, to the wide array of courses—remember the crazy awesome ghosts levels?—it's difficult to find any fault in this game. It was the start of one of Nintendo's most profitable franchises ever. That's a big deal.

11. Secret of Mana

It's no "secret" that there are loads of amazing role-playing games on the Super Nintendo. Secret of Mana is one of the best of the best, thanks to its incredible story and gorgeous art. The game's active real-time battle system also brought a breath of fresh air to the genre, which was typically dominated by turn-based combat. If that weren't enough, it incorporated cooperative multiplayer, which is a huge win in my book.
