The SNES Classic Games, Ranked by What to Play First
Some folks wholeheartedly consider the Super Nintendo (SNES) to be the greatest console in the history of gaming. They might be right. The popular platform thrived in a decade that was dominated by Polly Pockets and Super Soakers, and it did so with a vast library of games and a never-ending loop of replayability. The SNES became a catalyst for sleepovers, date nights, and Saturday afternoons with mom and dad, and thanks to Nintendo, it’s now a $79.99 relic that's returning to TVs everywhere.
Following the short-lived run of the NES Classic, the aptly titled Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition is slated to launch on September 29. It comes with two wired controllers and 21 different games ranging in levels of fun. Which game do you start with when you pick up yours? Like we did for the NES Classic games, we've ranked the pre-loaded games for convenience (and a little refresher on what they actually are -- it's been awhile). Apologies in advance to Chrono Trigger, NHL ‘94, or Turtles in Time fans -- we love them, but they don't come packaged this time around.
