some kart game that no one remembers
batman begins
doom (the last game i bought for it)
international superstar soccer + delux
mortal kombat
nba jam
star fox (played on that "super weekend" edition too, can't get that bloody tin open because it's RUSTED SHUT :lol: )
street racer
super star wars / empire / jedi
turtles in time
wwf super wrestlemania and royal rumble
zombies ate my neighbours

and a lot on emulation including a small wrestling game ... FIRE PRO WRESTLING X PREMIER TRANSLATED ...

sad story
i was setting up doing a simming competition using this, and then decided to created something unusual, like a web comic of some sort.
so i set about screenshotting the game and separating EVERY single element, editing them a bit, so i could put them all together and make crap up storywise and creating custom elements too!

here's some i made earlier and totally not blowing trumpets here, i probably have posted all before here ...


i absolutely LOVED doing all that, but alas an accidental drive wipe ended that :sadface:
all inspired by the little animations that fans were creating

and i even saw the boxed game once, up on a high shelf in a small games store

no super mario world? ... well it was the pack i got but i was rubbish
street fighter2?
final fantasy?


at the end when i traded it all in i had eleven games ...

those thick chunky cartridges man

It should be Secret of Mana because I enjoyed the multiplayer RPG experience with my brother so much. But, Terranigma is not only my favourite SNES game but my favourite ever game. A brilliant and immersive story, great gameplay, superb music, different and interesting worlds, great-looking bosses, and I loved furnishing my house at a time when that was a unique thing in a game. I bought Terranigma from a friend for £7 and soon felt like I'd ripped him off. It was right up there with Mario 64 at the time I was playing it.

I think that's 8 more than we ever had.

I still love Mario All Stars though, can I have that as a game? The Mario 3 in that is pretty much perfect, so much so I'm thinking I need to introduce my grandkids to proper gaming controllers using it this week (they arrived from Spain for 3 weeks today).

Might as well ask ask me to pick a favourite child lol. I guess DKC 3. The graphics, the characters and the music were the best in that series for me and has more collectables which I love. Or Sm world. Or Bomberman 2.

DKC3. Maybe.

I never had the SNES in the day, being a Mega Drive man. But now I have the Mini SNES I will have to pick off that!

Ooh... Is it CASTLEVANIA IV? Is it ZOMBIES ATE MY NEIGHBOURS? Is it SHADOWRUN? You know what? It's FINAL FANTASY VI (or III, at the time of its Western localisation).
Yes, I have no love for Mario.

Street Fighter 2 was the reason I got a Snes. The console bundle seened such great value compared to those earlier grey imports of the game, although the official UK release was pretty expensive too, iirc. Anyway, it was my favourite arcade game at the time, and the Snes conversion was essentially perfect. Even as a kid, it was at that moment I realised the arcade's days were numbered.

Batman Returns. A solid scrolling beat em up, that feels really brutal and crunchy.

Chrono Trigger. Around 1999 I had never played an RPG before, I tried loading CT and I was hooked to it for hours. It was the start of my love for JRPGs.
