    I'm seriously amazed there wasn't a single mention of Super Metroid in there! Kudos to all your other mentions... but REALLY?!

    Lets not forget these amazing titles...

    Final Fantasy 4 (Sill one of my favorite RPG's to date)
    Final Fantasy 6
    Super Metroid
    Super R-Type (One of the Best Side Scrolling shooters)
    Star Fox (First 3D graphics chip on a console system)

    For those of you Zelda fans that think your hardcore.. Play the rom hack Zelda Parallel Worlds... It will challenge you like no Zelda game has before.

    SNES was such a great game system. A lot of great games--Final Fantasy 2 (4 in Japan), Final Fantasy 3 (6 in Japan), Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Punch-Out!, Super Metroid, Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, Earthbound (why oh why aren't you on the Virtual Console), Super Mario Kart, Actraiser, Chrono Trigger, Donkey Kong Country, Megaman X-X3... So many great games and great memories...

    STREET FIGHTER 2...I played that sucker for days straight; then, I went to the arcade and was actually able to hold my own once I knew the moves, timing, and animations. It was the ultimate equalizer...HAAAADOUKEN!!!!

    Ah yes. THIS is what we talk about when the older gamers say new material just isn't as good as in the past. So many great games and I still have them all. This and the PS1 have just too many classics to ever forget. Can't tell you how many hours the neighborhood spent playing Mario Kart and Super Bomberman 2 multiplayer.

    So many amazing Squaresoft RPGs from back in the day on this machine: Chrono Trigger, FF6 (FF3 at the time), and Secret of Mana all still rank as some of my alltime favorite games.

    They just don't make 'em like that anymore. As an aside, they forgot to mention Star Fox, those incredibly hard Super star Wars games, and Final Fight.
