Official Best Games For Snes

hoshi no kirby III!!!

(as in kirby's dreamland III, hard but great :) prolly won't work on gp32)
My top favorites for my beloved snes are:

1. Chrono Trigger, Terranigma, Final Fantasy 6
2. Super Metroid, Zelda - A Link To The Past
3. Secret Of Mana, Secret Of Evermore, Illusion Of Time
4. Super Mario Kart, F-Zero, NBA Jam TE, Street Fighter 2
5. Mega Man X, X2, X3
6. Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario World
7. Super Mario World 2 - Yoshi`s Island

Wow, as I think of all these awesome games, the SNES is really still one of my favorite consoles.
Sailor Moon another story! This game is really fun if you are a sailor moon fan! It doesn't follow the original story, hence the another story part.

I'm going to play it on my gp32 on my way to Thailand! yeah 16 hours on a plane...
I will have to look at some of these other games as well!
I'd be interested to know about SNES shooters - particular the more obscure Japanese ones.

I've been playing these two:

Macross Scrambled Valkyrie (aka Choujikuu Yousai Macross)
This is awesome. If you know Robotech/Macross, then you will love this. Choose from one of three characters and begin blasting. Great powerups and spectacular graphics.

Spriggan Powered
Another awesome mecha shooter. If you know Spriggan, than this is really good. Wonderful graphics and playability with nice powerups.

Any others? I love the spacey/mecha/aircraft style shooters but I am interested in all.
A few more:

Imperium -- vertical mech shooter
Caravan Shooting Collection -- three classic shmups, inc. Star Force!
Aero Fighters/Sonic Wings -- great arcade conversion, bit of slowdown (on the original SNES).
100% Cotton -- Gradius with a girl on a broomstick
Archer Maclean's "Super" Dropzone -- from the c64, kind've like Defender but with a jetpack.
Area 88/U.N. Squadron -- the real deal in horizontal shmups. You've probably played UN Squad, but try the original Japanese game as it's slightly different.
Bio-Metal -- an inferior Thunderforce clone, but still pretty good
Phalanx -- very similar
Assault Suits Valken -- probably not what you meant, but it's one of my fave games ever
Super Aleste/Space Megaforce -- weapons supreme!
Strike Gunner S.T.G -- a bit primitive, but fast
Super E.D.F. -- not great
Axelay -- still a touch slow on GP2X with sound
Super Nova -- a Darius sequel
Thunder Spirits -- not a patch on the Genesis games, unfortunately

Then of course the Parodius series, R-Type 3, Gradius 3, Pop & Twinbee and others...
I know this is graverobbing - but this topic is linked from a sticky... soo....
  • Super Mario RPG - #1 - quite possibly the Best Mario Game Ever
  • Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World (yeah, one of the best games for the SNES is a remake of games from the NES)
  • Super Mario Kart - the beginning of one of the most popular of all video game series
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Mortal Kombat
  • Mega Man 7
  • Mega Man X (although the MMX series went downhill after the first one - I'm a huge original Mega Man fan - can't wait for MM9 on the Wii!)
What can I say? I love Mario and Mega Man!
