Yes, NBA Live was horrible last year. But this year's entry is a vast improvement. Just give it a try.

Dungeon of the Endless Review
A roguelike that’s equal parts charming and challenging with a turn-based twist.

I know there are a ton of games I should have for my SNES (which I just unpacked from it's bubble wrapping), but I'm wondering if you guys have any of the more obscure suggestions.

Of course I know Earthbound, FFIII(VI), SMRPG, SMKart, etc etc etc, but can you suggest some lesser known SNES must-have-classics?

Looking through my collection and the other "collection". Don't have any super underground titles, but maybe they are a little less known.

B.O.B. - Platformer/Shooter
Dragon Quest 5 - One of the best RPG's on the system
E.V.O. The Search for Eden - Play trough the stages of evolution.
Lost Vikings 1 & 2 - Really good puzzle platformers
Secret of Evermore - RPG with realtime battle system. Overshadowed by Secret of Mana
Shiren The Wanderer - Roguelike RPG.
Sunset Riders - Shoot'em up similar to Contra set in the wild west. Fun in co-op
Terranigma - Great realtime RPG
Zombies Ate My Neighbours - Awesome co-op


All the Mario and Donkey Kong Country are given and don't forget Super Castlevania IV.

The thing is, I probably will drop the cash on a copy of that game if I'm so inclined.

And thanks for reminding me of ActRaiser. Off to ebay I go on that one.

I've never played this one so that's another on my growing list.

The good Battletoads was for NES/Game Boy. Not sure that the Battlemaniacs sequel was anything special.

Super Bomberman 2 - A classic if you have 4 controllers via a multi-tap adapter.

NBA JAM - Same.

Shadowrun - it's a flawed western RPG with a cyberpunk theme but it's fun if you have a faq handy.

Lots of great suggestions. Can anyone think of publishers that have since died? I want to look through their catalogs for some greats that haven't been brought into the modern downloadable era.

To be honest I never really liked Punch-Out.

Whaaaaat? Lol I loved that game. I even got to the secret circuit. That samurai kicked my ass, hitting you with a blunt staff isn't boxing.
