I was going to say Mario Kart because I had good memories playing multiplayer, but even going back to it now makes my eyes bleed and makes me nauseous! But then I thought Street Fighter II, many a competition at school with that, but strickly thats a port, other great titles for me are SMW 2: Yoshis Island, Pilotwings and Super Castlevania IV, but in the end I'm plumping for Super Mario World.....sorry boring answer but its true!

The favourite game from my favourite console eh? That's a toughie, like picking a favourite child tough, but I'm going for Super Metroid. It's so infuriating when people tell me that I love old games because of their nostalgic value, when I only played Super Metroid a year and a half ago and its one of my all time favourite games. The Prime series had nothing on that 16-bit miracle.

Honorable mentions go to Secret of Mana (another recent un-nostalgic play), Super Mario World and A Link to the Past.
Chazz it up!!!

F Zero.

It was cooler than Mario Kart and had an awesome soundtrack.

I've only played two SNES games - Super Punch and Daze Before Christmas :lol: (both because of the Retro League).

Nothing out of the ordinary for me. I will say Super Metroid. That game has one of the best soundtracks of all time.

Legend of mystical ninja, a great but very underrated game, a little gem from Konami.

Secret of Mana for sure. Still one of my favourite games on any platform. I used to spend hours just listening to the music.

Best Super Nintendo game??? Uhm....Gahhhh! :? *Head explodes*

This is a really tricky question! There are loads of brilliant games on it...I'll just pick Zombies and pretend that was the only game on it! Yeah, Zombies.....

Never been a fan of the snes. My mate had one and we enjoyed multiplayer Micro Machines 2 and Bomberman.........

I'll go with Bomberman as the better one - but then I love Bomberman on ANY system!

Easy. The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past.

The whole opening sequence with your father dashing off to save the Proincess, then you following him through the dark and rainswept night... epic.

Lots of great games to chose from but my vote goes with the wonderful Mario Kart which I still play to this day. :D

Such is the quality to choose from, this is quite tricky, I am going for Super Castlevania IV, I bought in on holiday, and spent a beautiful summers day indoors playing it to death, much to the disgust of the rest of the group.

It contains some of the best music of it's generation, and Konami threw every graphical trick at their disposal in making the most awsome platform experience at the time, great game full of atmosphere.
