oh, got a couple:

Assault Suit Valken/Cybernator (semi-follow up the Assault Suit Leynos)

Battle Mobile (or to give it, its full name: Gekitotsu Dangan Jidousha Kessen:Battle Mobile) How road avenger would be when turned into an up the screen car blaster, near identical story in the intro in amazing SNES-O-VISION!! And a cracking little gem imo.

Megaman X. Blew me away despite never liking the NES games. Never got to play the sequels, but always wanted to.
It's called a MEGADRIVE

Super Mario World for me too. Still remember the first time I saw it at a friends house, I thought gaming couldn't possibly ever get any better than that!

That's a nasty question. There's always the triple A titles to mention, but i'm going for The Lost Vikings. Fabulous gameplay, superb level design and just wanting to see what came next, meant this was the first (of only a few) SNES games i ever completed. Unmissable!

Chrono Trigger, closely followed by Zelda LTTP.

Umihara Kawase, under loved and criminally unknown SFC import only title. A magical little platform game that has easily stood the test of time.

Backed into a corner. I'd have to say Contra Spirits. By about 0.00001%

Seriously, theres just too many superb games to have only 1 favourite.

Super Mario Kart consumed hours of my life, so I have to say that. The playability is amazing and I just couldn't leave it alone through the whole time I actively played on the SNES. And it was a game family members also enjoyed, clustered around the TV hurtling red shells at each other.

Honourable mentions got to Contra, which I loved reading about in your recent piece and Zombies Ate My Neighbours, which had fantastic 50s retro themeing and was an amazing play too - even if I was rubbish at it.

Knights of the Round is my favourite SNES game by a mile. It's the closest to the seminal Golden Axe that SNES owners got, back in the day.

Star Wing. The whole cinematic feel and the non-stop action just makes it such a joy to play. I love everything about it, except maybe that damn frog!

Chrono Trigger. I remember I had never even looked at an RPG before, it was a friday evening, just after dinner and I was home alone. Loaded it, and when I looked at the clock again it was 1 o'clock. I truly was hooked, and the world of RPGs opened to me. A masterpiece.

Great question. There were many great games, but top on my list would have to be Star Fox (aka Star Wing). The "stage select" kept replay value high and I always felt drawn into the action to the point that I was physically dodging incoming laser fire with my body! It's criminal that Star Fox 2 was never released, at least not for the SNES itself.

Pilot Wings. It was one of the main reasons I bought a SNES and so different to other games out at the time. I still have a go on this at events, and it is still fun to play even though the attack helicopter mission is stupidly difficult.
