I was a late-bloomer when it came to acquiring my own Super Nintendo back in the day and like many single parent families we simply could not afford it. That meant I was hanging out a the homes of friends who had their own SNES or renting one from Blockbuster (yeah you could rent game systems back in the day.)
I didn’t have a SNES during the height of it’s popularity but I didn’t miss out on the big games or some heavy gaming after I grabbed a job and was able to afford one. Anyway, the Super Nintendo will always go down as one of my favorite consoles of all time, I even developed a tribute-ish album that revolved around it, Super. You should buy it.
Anyway, with so many awesome games it’s difficult to pick one favorite game. You have the now cult classic, Earthbound, which I had 2 copies of before finally including it in a trade for a PSOne; Super Mario World, Earthworm Jim, Donkey Kong Country, FFIII, Secret of Mana, SF2 but for me it’s gotta be the game I still play on a semi-regular basis, Chrono Trigger.
The story, the graphics, the characters, the gameplay, replay value all add up to create my fav SNES game of all time, so yeah, what’s yours?
