Hola everyone! ss4gogeta069 back with my top ten Super Nintendo games that I will never stop playing! We all have those games that we can pick up at any time and jump right into the gameplay. Well, here are my top 10 from the Super Nintendo. If you want to add to it or discuss why I picked a game I’ll be glad to do so in the comments. I always love a good gaming discussion!These games are in no particular order because I honestly can’t rank my old-school games that way. They’re all very near and dear to my heart as I, being and old guy, grew up playing these.
#10. Donkey Kong Country Series
“Donkey Kong is back with a new sidekick, Diddy Kong, in a crazy island adventure! Challenged by the crazed tribe of reptilian Kremlings, they endeavor to get back their stolen banana horde! Armed with lightning-quick moves, chest-pounding muscle and awesome aerial acrobatics, our duo is ready to face their cunning adversaries. With the help of Donkey Kong’s quirky family and his wild animal mounts, they squabble and scamper their way through the unending monkey mayhem.”
#9. Super Castlevania 4
“A century of Transylvanian tranquility is about to come to a shocking end. Once again the mortifying screams of helpless villagers shake the ground as they huddle against new nightmarish horrors unleashed by the Duke of Darkness, Count Dracula. And this time he has a tombstone with your name on it, Simon Belmont.
You must descend into Castle of the Undead and its gruesome ground, accompanied by the most chilling sound effects to ever tingle your spine. Inside, a freshly dug 11 levels maze features the treacherous Terrace of Terror, the dangerous Rotating Dungeon, the Sunken Ruins of Lost Spirits, torture chambers and creature filled caves. Use your whip like a grappling hook and swing past hundreds of traps and a host of ghost freaks, living corpses and hidden goblins. All while dodging or destroying the unpredictable spitting lizards, carnivorous coffins, and more.
Find the concealed weapons needed to defeat everything from eerie phantoms to haunted furniture. Then prepare to find yourself face-to-thing with hideous torments like the Tongue Lasher, the Darkest Knight, the Bone-Afide Horseman and the Granite Crusher. When your nerves get shot, use your password and take a breather. But forge on, Simon Belmont, because if you though Dracula was down for the count, he’s only just begun to fright!”
“The future of racing is here! F-ZERO, an intergalaxtic Grand Prix, uses machines that weigh more than a ton, reach dash speeds of over 500km/h and hover a mere twelve inches off the ground! Choose from the heroic Captain Falcon, or the suave, Dr. Stuart. Need more choices? Then try the sly alien, Pico or the not-so-honest Samurai Goroh, and race for intergalactic fame and fabulous fortune in the F-ZERO Grand Prix.”
#7. Final Fight
“Mayor Mike Haggar vows to snatch the streets of Metro City back from the crooks with his bare knuckles! But the Mad Gear Gang snatches his daughter Jessica. Now there’s gonna be some bone-crunching dues to pay!

Now you’re Haggar or Cody, each with his own fighting style. Demolish gangland henchmen, samurai swordsmen and musclebound crime bosses in a fist-to-nose frenzy!”

Well, there you have it guys. My all-time, go-to games for Super Nintendo gaming. I can pick up any of those games and play for hours. I said they are in no particular order but I have to say #1 & 2 are definitely the top 2 and are interchangeable. I don’t think anyone can argue those are two of the best games on SNES if not the best in their respective series. I guess that about wraps it up. If you want to talk about any of the games on the list or want to suggest a game I left out feel free to let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading and… HAPPY GAMING!!!
