i've tried it through emulator but couldn't get on with it,can't really explain why though.

anyway i had a mega drive my mate had a snes and the one game that made me jealous was mario kart,also street fighter II until the superior (imo) md versions came out.

Super Mario World. Which is a bit embarrassing for all concerned, given no-one bettered the very first game. And it was 'free'.

Super Mario World. Possibly one of my favourite and like its predecessor, it feels bigger than before. The introduction of Yoshi, the feather and hidden secrets got myself drawn into its incredible gameplay. The enemies were interesting, especially the giant Bullet Bill at the beginning.

My fav is Super Mario Kart but a bloody close second is Equinox

I have a lot of favourite games on the SNES, but in this instance I'm going for the best RPG on the system, Secret of Mana.

Horrible question to ask, because there are so many. But it has to be Link to the Past; best SNES game arguable, best Zelda game, best game of all time...?

Don't have many, but Mario Kart races away with it.

Smash TV & Robotron 2084 (on the Williams Collection) & Total Carnage - "Twin stick" directional fire on a home console was a big thing back in the early 90's before your Playstations your Xboxes and your Wiicubes.

Strangely I think it was Stunt Race FX, I loved that game when it came out... must have played it for hours. Particularly liked the underwater level with the dolphins and the like. Playing it today it really doesn't stand up to the test of time... it's too slow, and has jerky animation, but at the time I thought it was the bees knees.

Kirby's Dream Course. Cute, easy to play with some boppy tunes and it made the game of golf fun.

Really hard question as the SNES was the console I grew up on. Super Mario World is still my favourite platformer so I guess that one or Super Metroid, Super Castlevania IV, Contra III: The Alien Wars, Chrono Trigger, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Mega Man X, Final Fantasy VI, Donkey Kong Country, Harvest Moon, Mortal Kombat II, Super Punch-Out!!, F-Zero, Earthbound, etc, etc.
