Really, REALLY tough question; but I would have to plump for Super Metroid. Incredibly atmospheric, highly polished and a memorable experience from start to finish.

A terrible choice, but Killer Instinct.
It was the only game where I could kick the tar out of everybody. Most people didn't bother to learn it because it wasn't that good.

There are far too many to pick from. Chrono Trigger.

I never got into the SNES, I was more into SEGA until the Wii came along. I am now playing many games on emulation now, so may have a favourate in a few years time.

Cybernator'll do for me - they used to have a SNES in the barber shop, and I'd play Cybernator whilst waiting for a haircut. Fun until some little bleeders robbed the thing.

Really hard question to answer. I can think of five straight away but I will go with Starwing.

Super Mario World! FZero! Super Mario Kart! Star Fox/Star Wing! This truly a tough one :?

It's so hard to choose, so many great games and my favourite of console!

:D

Edit: I forgot Yoshi's Island, Pilot Wings and the various high quality Street Fighter 2 ports!

Most of the good ones are taken, but Super Bomberman seems to be somewhat lacking in this list so far.

A great laugh with 4 players, if you can get them. I still have 4 pads and a multitap just for this!

Honorary mentions go to the Super Star Wars and the Desert Strike sets of games.

Starfox sums up my SNES memories form when I was a kid. The game & the system showed what the MegaDrive couldn't do. Do a barrel roll! :D

My favourite game of all time is Super Mario World. Even today it's such a large game with many hours of gameplay to be had. Very replayable...

I was loving my AMIGA back then but the awesomeness of CHRONO TRIGGER simply blew me away. It still is one of the most brilliant RPG's ever!

There's so many great games for the SNES, many of which I'd describe as 'perfect'.
Super Punch Out
Super Metroid
Super Mario World/Kart
ActRaiser
F-Zero
Zelda ALTTP

But I'll go for Chrono Trigger.

StarWing (StarFox), the reason to buy a SNES IMHO!
