FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Which was the better system, the NES or SNES? Also for the system u pick, say what game(s) made made u pick that. I would say SNES for Contra 3, Super Adventure Island, Zelda: LttP and Super Metroid.

SNES had better RPGs, more epic games, mario paint!, and a rocket launcher for a light gun.

Well, this is a tough one.

The case for NES:
Mega Man 2 and 3: Two games which still has some of the best original soundtracks ever. Plus, they're fun to play if you've got an hour to waste.

Duck Hunt: I'm utterly amazed how the NES managed to put so much glee into a sound that really isn't like real laughter at all... But then again, perhaps it's like that Horse on the Chalk (if you're not a Terry Prathchett fan, you're missing out here), in that it's not what a malicously gleeful laughter sounds like, but what a maliciosly gleeful laughter actually is.

Rad Racer: Well, not really that good a car game, but again, some pretty cool scores.

Ninja Gaiden: The epitome of what a ninja game should be: Plenty of cool ninja tricks, a plot with death and betrayal, and of course, difficult as three hells, as -everything- wants to kill a ninja. (Which the ninja enjoys, because -he- wants to kill everything.)

The case for SNES:
Super Mario World: This is one of the few platform games that really stands the test of time. Some pretty damn accurate controls, lots of different stages, some corny humour, and so on... Probably one of the best launch games for any console.

Secret of Mana: It's strange that hardly any action-RPG hybrid still doesn't have much more reliable AI than this game (Heck, Tales of Symphonia is almost worse). And oh my god, some of the scores just grabs my spine and twists it. Especially the one in the snow area. How can something so simple make such a strong impression?

Zelda: A link to the Past: Yeah, can't get past this one. Unless you have heavy nostalgia factors built in, the first Zelda just doesn't withstand the stains of time as well as this one.

F-Zero and Mario Kart: Two racing games emphasising the fun in racing, in their own distinctive manners.

I don't know, it's a tough one. I guess the SNES wins out by a narrow margin...

Nostalgia only gets you so far. As much as I loved Kirby's adventure and the original Final Fantasy for the NES, I have to support the console that gave us such titles as Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy III (IV), and LoZ: Link to the Past.

I was too young and stupid to realize the full potential nes had to offer. Having that said snes introduced me to the sweet addictive gaming life. I wish mom didnt throw out the nes though. Crying or Very sad Havnt spoke to her since that day. Mad

man, this is like picking which of your favourite toys you want put in the garbage.

NES was the start of it all for me but the SNES era was the golden age for gaming. super mario world, mario cart, secret of mana, link to the past... so many memories.

SNES all the way

I prefer the SNES, 'cus you can't save on a NES. Clearing Super Mario Bros. was so damn frustrating, especially when your console froze at world 9-2.
