what games did you play on this console - SNES, super nintendo/famicom ??

Recommended Posts

which SNES super nintendo/famicom  games did you like ??

one of my absolute favs was ganbare goeman or known as the legend of the mystical ninja in the west

there was so much to do in this game inc bosses and mini games like gambling on dice,horses or entering a maze finding treasure and very much later in the game some wonderful water levels and all round quirkiness. a true gem of a game I highly recommend it.

and this one  Sküljagger - Revolt of the Westicans  

it was a pirate themed platform game ,I remember

you could blow a bubblegum and float round the screen and get higher in the air the larger you blew up the bubble but careful not to pop it lol

The SNES had some wonderful games and also some really messed up ones.

There is a selection of R-Type style games ( at least that's what I think they were meant to be ) that look like the authors have been whacked out their heads forever on when you can fly as a cat or god knows what else.  Take a look at this...  ...I think the cat is called Mike...

Never owned either, but via emulation on my PC, I discovered Donkey Kong Country. Played it for hours and hours, not playing anything else on my PC for a few weeks. Sadly it got too hard towards the end for me and I never quite finished it.

Played some games via emulation over the past couple of years on my GPD XD, but none I can recall getting that much into. 

I also remember having a good laugh with a few teenagers on one of the Street Fighter games on the SNES around an old girlfriends sisters place.

I recently decided to collect the mini console/computers. So I got a NES and SNES mini, but haven't even opened them yet.

Anyone come across one of these Famicom units? I think they are some sort of Chinese rip-off of the old Nintendo Family Computer. Like an original Japanese NES unit. They come with 2 reasonable joypads, plus a cartridge with hundreds of games on. Ironically, the bloody thing doesnt run with the cart in but runs fine with it removed. You need to have a TV capable of recieving RCA composite video (you know, those 3 jack connectors comprising of a yellow video jack and a red jack and white jack for audio). My SONY Bravia KD55 OLED UHD TV won't accept the video signal without a RCA to HDMI converter. My LG HDTV works fine provided you don't plug the cartridge in whilst the console is switched on. There must be some RAM on the Famicom unit as all the games on the cart are accessible on the console without the cart plugged in. I suspect that if you power up the unit with the cart in, the games are transferred to the console. But it seems you have to remove the cart to play the games. Theres plenty of original NES games on this unit, but the weird thing, theres Galaga, Space Invaders and other MAME games in the list leading me to believe theres some sort of MAME emulator on board. I'm pretty sure that this alone proves that this is some sort of Chinese rip-off.

I bought 2 of em for christmas presents from Cash Converters in sunny Scunny (Scunthorpe) for £40 each. Pretty good value if I'm honest.

The history is this is a parody of Gradius and originated on the MSX computer. Basically Konami took virtually every game asset and character from their other games and dumped them into Gradius

Got an Xbox 360 with backwards compatibility so I can have stuff like Rampage, Defender, Narc, Gauntlet, Smash Tv and various other 80s and 90s retro. Then got the retro fruits machines from places like this. 

The need for want, is not needed!

Rock and Roll Racing!!!!!!  Lovely music.

Mario Kart for sheer playability and enjoyment.

On the SNES was more interested in the Anthrox, Eurasia, Arcadia, Oldskool, Censor crack intros.

Used to like the the RPG's , Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana were 2 that stood out.

Did own a console when they were current as well.-

These days you can play it on just about anything emulation wise, have a pretty good Hyperspin set but spend more time keeping that updated than playing it.

Pesky kids to blame😀, mine are young and full of beans so not much time.

The eldest (6) asked to play Pacman the other week out of the blue so gave him a bash on Mame so hopefully we will be playing this togther in a few years!

Loved the SNES and got to say apart from the Mario's I loved Secret of Mana that game was epic, so much to do so many hours spent on there!
