Well, the SNES would probably be my favourite console - even though I don't have many games for it any more (I sold them off about 15 years ago). Anyway, I've managed to get most of those I either had or wanted as a kid. From memory:

Cannon Fodder (Cart Only)
Donkey Kong Country (Cart Only)
Doom (Boxed)
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Boxed)
The Lost Vikings (Boxed)
Mortal Kombat (Boxed)
Mortal Kombat II (Cart Only)
Phantom 2040 (NTSC, Boxed)
Spectre (Boxed)
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Future's Past (Boxed)
Starwing (Boxed)
Street Fighter II (Cart Only)
Super Ghouls N Ghosts (Boxed)
Super International Cricket (Boxed)
Super Mario Kart (Cart Only)
Super Mario World (Cart Only)
Super Star Wars (Boxed)
Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (Boxed)

I'm hoping to start bashing through Super Ghouls N Ghosts tonight.

A few others I'm hoping to come across soon are:

Rock N Roll Racing
Sim City
Sim City 2000
Stunt Race FX
Super Metroid
Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
Wolfenstein 3D

Ahh the SNES. I'm nearing 400 carts myself, a lot of them boxed. I also have a complete Sufami Turbo collection fully boxed, which I'm quite pleased with. It's a pity that it never really took off, as it was a great idea.

Finally got a copy of Gradius 3 for a decent price. Man, I forgot how much this version slows down. I love that Konami must have realised they had an issue with slow down, but they still went ahead and put those bubbles in that burst into smaller bubbles. You can just hear the SNESs pathetic 3Mhz CPU going "Please stop, no more bubbles!" :mrgreen:

Do you guys always go for boxed? Or do you just want to play the game?

Usually I go for boxed. The only exception being Rendering Ranger R2 which was going to cost me £200 extra just to get the box and manual so I picked up a cart only version in the end.

Being a cheapskate (not that SNES collecting is that cheap), I'm happy with just the cart.

I always go for boxed.

Always have done with my SNES as I still have all of my original boxed games from when I was younger so I've just always collected complete games. Yes it's more expensive but I find its worth it in the end when you finally get hold of a nice complete collection.

I do have some cart only in my collection but one day I'll get round to getting the complete version and will get rid of the carts.

I'm just in it for the games, so cart only. I have picked up the occasional boxed game, but only ones that weren't too horribly expensive.

I'd personally never collect boxed games for the SNES, not unless I was rich. I know from collecting boxed N64 games you just take the cart out once and put the box on the shelf never to be touched again. With the N64 it wasn't too bad as you would only pay and extra 10 quid or so for the boxed edition but you are only paying for cardboard.

I also disliked buying boxed games and sellers not packing them appropriately even though you gave specific instructions. I just can't be doing with the headache of that.

If there's a boxed copy and a loose copy in the same shop and the price difference isn't a p*ss-take I'll always buy the boxed one. But I'm happy with loose carts - thanks to the flimsy cardboard boxes Nintendo elected to use, good quality boxed copies of a lot of games are like rocking horse sh*t.

I remember the plastic clamshell boxes that Woolworths used to display their SNES, NES and Game Boy titles in. Nintendo really should have used something similar.
