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

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



10. Contra III: The Alien Wars

One of the greatest games to ever come out of Konami has got to be Contra III: The Alien Wars. The couch co-op gameplay consumed hours upon hours of my bro-filled time. Running through levels with my finger on the virtual trigger was thrilling, especially when I managed to nab a cool power-up. Oh yeah, and those top-down sections did a great job to break up the pacing. Though, man was that game hard!



9. Mortal Kombat II

Classic fighting games don't get much better than Mortal Kombat II. If the sheer amount of violence packed into this fighter didn't grab your attention, perhaps the killer cast each with its own batch of unique attacks did. And then there's the Fatalities. Remember playing for hours on end just trying to pull off those gruesome finishers with each character? Such a wonderful waste of time.



8. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

I don't think I've rented a game from Blockbuster more times than Super Mario RPG. Every time my brother and I would take the cartridge home from the rental store, we'd start from the beginning just to experience the game's epic opening moments. Sure, it featured the traditional cast of Mario, Peach, and Bowser, but also tossed in some fresh faces like Geno and Mallow. Squaresoft brought Mario into the role-playing genre in expert fashion and that is no easy feat.



7. Donkey Kong Country

Rare's kong-filled platforming franchise blew away gamers on the SNES with its impressive pseudo-3D visuals, super fun tag-team style gameplay, and a wide array of unique and interesting levels. Hunting down all of those hidden coins and KONG letters was always a blast, and the game's slew of rideable creatures were totally awesome. The series still lives on today as Retro Studios carries the torch. The fact that the same great gameplay still lives on today is a testament to DKC's quality.



6. Mega Man X

Capcom totally blew my childhood mind with Mega Man X. Adhering to traditional Mega Man form, the game featured a number of varied and super creative levels, each with its own iconic boss. The gorgeous art is some of my favorite on the SNES and the pitch-perfect gameplay made it difficult to put down the controller. There are few games as timeless as Mega Man X, which speaks volumes about its quality. Oh yeah, and that soundtrack was amazing.
