New SNES-related video every Tuesday, and a SNES LP/Game Boy/NES/Genesis video in that order every Thursday. Follow me on Twitter to keep up.

    Sadly, a lot of the prettiest games were left out. Kirby 3, Chrono Trigger, Trials of Mana, Star Ocean, Street Fighter Alpha, Mega Man and Bass, DKC3, and Pinnochio (im not kidding, that game is the visual apex of Disney Games).

    I had never played Secret of Mana and Mario RPG. I was DEEPLY disappointed. Mario RPG is just plain boring, and Secret of Mana is an unfinished game, plain and simple. It is clear the game was rushed or something, because I could see tons of rooms with furniture but no characters on it. And… that's sort of what happened, it was supposed to be an awesome SNES CD RPG, but the CD thing was never released.

    It makes me sick that I can't get into FF3(6). Everyone speaks so highly of it. I just can't get into it. Earthbound and Chronotrigger are stellar. Maybe I need to give FF3(6) another chance. I'm sure I could come to love it…what's wrong with me?!?!?

    Maybe Nintendo can do a SNES RPG collection

    Illusion of Gaia
    Secret of evermore
    Suoikon 1 & 2
    Breath of Fire 1 & 2
    Final fantasy IV
    Innido: ways of the ninja
    Wanderers of Ys III
    CHRONO TRIGGER
    Final fantasy: mystic quest
    Shadowrun
    7th Saga
    Orge Battle
    Lufia 1 & 2

    I'm sure there are more classic RPGs that didnt make the classic list….but, if Nintendo plays on their strength of RPGs, then it could be another best seller

    SNES DRUNK > Not sure if this ever got corrected but there is a “beat ‘em up” game on the SNES Classic, Street🥊Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting. Just saying. And recently found your channel, it’s really well done with good content👍🏼.

    I have my SNES Classic and it's great. The person who gifted it to me took it upon themselves to load on additional games, probably more than I'll ever get to with my busy schedule, but it's terrific to be able to replay my favorite SNES games, plus be exposed to other brilliant games that I missed out on. This device is definitely worth the price of admission.

    Man, i really enjoyed this! Unfortunatelly, i'm from Brazil… It's coming so late, and the price is outrageous 🙁 Almost R$1200,00… About 390,00 dollars… I can't even buy old cartridges 🙁

    With Terranigma I have the feeling that there are rights issues at SquareEnix about the Quintet games (remember also on the Wii Virtual Console only the first ActRaiser arrived, while the more popular Gaia trilogy (Soul Blazer, Illusion of Time/Gaia, Terranigma) not even got ported on mobile (and we know how SE loves to port their RPGs))

    I recommend you watch Larry Bundy's take on why nintendo passed on Starfox 2. It seems that it was more of a "let's use some mechanics from starfox 2 in other nintendo games and don't give any credit to argonaut" than "we want to make a clear difference in 3d".
