RGB cables were sold for the SNES, but they weren't common iirc. Actually I can't find a box picture for Europe.

I was always a Megadrive man, but the SNES certainly did have some amazing games!

Star Fox
Mario 3
Super WrestleMania
F-Zero
Street Fighter II

Just a smattering of the SNES games I loved playing.

20 years- It makes one feel quite old.

Some of my favourites:

Mario Kart- Simply because I played it more than any other game at the time
Super Probotector- Running and gunning Konami action
Legend of the Mystical Ninja- The fact you could play Gradius on the in game arcade was a cherry on the top of this wacky game
Super Bomberman- With 4 player adaptor
Final Fantasy 6- Got me into Final Fantasy/Japanese RPGs. Graphics and music were/still are stunning for 16bit
Secret of Mana- Ditto

My parents bought me one of passing my 11 Plus exam, so around mid 1994. It was the Super Mario All Stars pack, and over time I built up a big collection of all the classics. Stupidly, I sold it all to buy Playstation games.and to make things worse I re bought it when they were worth very little, but didn't bother with the boxed and complete versions. Many great memories of Mario Kart, Super Metroid, Sim City, Street Fighter 2, Bomberman - games that still stand up today

Mario 3 was a NES game - and yeah, it was a landmark game. Better than Mario 4? The debate continues to this day...

Well it was on Mario Allstars, maybe he meant that?

As for which is better, that is impossible to answer. That's the kind of thing you ask a computer if you want it to self destruct.

It still doesn't make it a SNES game, is all I'm saying.

My most played SNES game - probably Kevin Keegan's Player Manager, funnily enough. I was obsessed with this game for a long long time! Really good version of Kick Off 2, with management thrown in.

So if RG did a SNES top 10 and included SMB3 people wouldn't mind? I guess they could include AllStars. Okay, I'm convinced, almost :D

One thing is for sure, I need to go back and play it, I haven't really played it since it first came out. Mmm, the lovely yellow box. Glory days!

It should be included as All Stars because that is what it is but it 100% a SNES game like Double Dragon is 100% C64, Amiga, ST, Speccy etc etc.

It is my least favourite game in the series but I did start a playthrough last night. :D
