SO! I am getting a SNES for Christmas but i can only get 2 games with it so... i was wondering if you guys could help me pick

I've narrowed my options to any combo of 2 out of:
Mega Man x
A Link to the Past
Super Metroid
F-zero
Super Mario Kart
Super Castlevania 4
Super Metroid

Please help... I simply can NOT choose, though I was thinking Zelda and Metroid

Mega Man X
Super Mario Kart
A Link to the Past

Narrowed down a bit further according to what I enjoyed.

As soon as you can, add Goof Troop to the list. I'll give that game posthumous advertisement until I die.

Plenty more recommendations too, awaiting your budget.

Well, since you listed Super Metriod twice, you must really like it. Mega Man X was also pretty decent, although you'll probably get more gameplay time out of Zelda. I was never really a big fan of F-zero, but that and Mario Kart would be a good choice if you plan on having friends over. I never really liked any of the linear Castlevanias... If you really can't make up your mind, I suggest testing them out on an emulator, I believe they are legal to download for a period of 24 hours, unless you own the game, and I know most of the popular titles are protected by the something or other, but don't quote me on any of that.

Actually, roms are illegal whether you have them for 24 hours or not.

So it's not supposed to be encouraged in the forums.

My favourites (too many Action-RPGs to pick just one)...

Starfox (shoot 'em up)
Zelda / Soul Blazer / Illusion of Gaia / Terranigma (action RPGs)
Killer Instinct (fighting & multiplayer)
Super Ice Hockey (sport)
Mario Kart (racing & multiplayer)
Mario All-Stars (platformer)

I don't like any of those metroidvania type games, but that's just me.

Megaman X 1 is probably the best out of the X series.

If you live in the US you can't pick up terranigma unfortunately . If I ultimately had to choose out of the list you posted I would get Link to the Past and Megaman X.

If you want to stray from that a bit, secret of mana and secret of evermore are excellent games as well.

If If If

Thanks for all your replies can't believe I forgot to add super Mario rpg to the list... My budget is 50 or 60 dollars for games -and as far as having friends over, this console is more for personal use, since I have an xbox for when friends are here. My personal favorite genres are shooter and rpg which is why I was thinking metroid and Zelda, but maybe mega man would be better than metroid? Also, I wasn't sure quite how much the games are so I assumed 2 or 3 games, but with 50-60 usd do you think I could get metroid, mega man, Zelda, and Mario rpg? Sorry about any misspelling or stuff, this is from my iPod...

Mario RPG is $30-$35+ used.

With $60 you could get

Zelda,Megaman, and Metroid or Zelda, Megaman, Mario RPG I believe.

What about racing games... Mario kart or f-zero

And how much would you say dkc is? Because i was thinking about it, but i thought it was 25-30 dollars.

Im looking for what games will be fun to play by my self and will offer a bunch of hours of gameplay, so which games are the longest/ longest lasting?

Other than that stuff, zelda is definately in, and i think thats just 15 usd or something...

My bad, that's why I had the "don't quote me". I know that's how they used to work, I guess no one likes something they can't really regulate.

Ebay is awesome, but I'm not sure if you'll have to have a specific SNES version (if theres a difference between the PAL version etc).

I totally fogot about mana and evermore, although mana was pretty cheese, evermore topped the hell out of it. #3 wasn't so bad, but I don't think there's a non Japanese version.

SKETCY
"Soul Blazer"
I remember that game, I also remember not liking it at first because it looked pretty sappy.

MONKEYTREAT
"which games are the longest/ longest lasting?"
The multiplayer games definatly will have longevity, although I'd have to say any RPG would have the longest singleplay time, and since you're already planning on zelda, a second RPG might not be the best idea, unless you really love RPGs, in which case I would go with terranigma or evermore (ironically all of which are action RPGs...). Other than those, I would definatly consider Mario world, all stars, or DKC which offer a combination of the singleplayer time and multiplayer time, (of those three, world is probably my favorite).

I got my SNES Christmas 1992 , the year they was released in the UK. I still love my SNES such an excellent era of gaming, so many excellent games.

I love Mario Kart, it really is so much fun multiplayer. I would also consider one of the later All Stars cartridges which includes Super Mario Bros 1,2, and 3, lost levels and Super Mario World. The earlier cartridges like mine do not have Super Mario World so do watch out if you consider it!.

Zelda A link to the past is also a truely superb game .

Oh ensure you get your regions correct format. Not only will the game not fit in your console without a converter (these usually require two cartridges to bypass regional lockout if I remember) it will also run slow or fast...

Ive been pretty disappointed with my Snes since I bought it this year. I think the main problem is that people tell me how amazing a certain game is and when I play it it becomes apparent it's nostalgia speaking (starfox? i mean geez).

The street fighter 2 conversions are really good though. Slightly better than the Megadrive/Genesis ones.

And if Zelda A link to the past is as good as Zelda Link's awakening on the gameboy then it will be a top game.

I'm in the UK and was thinking of getting Terranigma but the prices are a bit steep for me. Still cheaper than Kirby 3 or Mario rpg.

@oldmanclayton i was planning on getting them from eBay, since for me the only local video game place is gamestop. I've checked some games on eBay and they seem fairly reasonably priced, though you have to make sure they aren't selling just the manual...

prices (not includingshipping) were about:
zelda: $10
castlevania 4: $13
f-zero: $10
Mario Kart: $17
Mega Man x: $23
Metroid: $30

all buy it now... the only problem is they're from eBay, but i'm trying to only look at the trusted seller ones... If anyone has a better place to buy snes games in connecticut i would be happy to know of it

Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country were the best. A Link To The Past is pretty bad. The enemies just wander around aimlessly without any AI. Kind of like they were given the "bouncing ball" movement from Clickteam.

oh man Terranigma. i personally think it is one of the best RPGs on the SNES. It's a shame and surprising it never got released in the USA.

Well let's not forget about Earthbound, please. In my opinion Mother 2 is probably the best SNES rpg. if only the cover wasnt so god damn ugly. no wonder nobody bought it lol. when i was a kid i just bought games with cool covers. it was a lot of trial and error. you didnt have DEMOS of snes or GB games and not every store would have consoles to play with or they just let you play the games you already knew so as a little kid i had to look what friends got or judging from the cover.

I do not understand the fuzz about Mario RPG. I do not think it was much fun. Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for GBA is the best Mario RPG. Its a lot of fun with great graphics.

Zelda A link to the past is the best Zelda game in my opinion. The SNES one isn't as good. It's just a completely different setting which makes it so appealing.

There are just TOO many Street Fighter II versions on the SNES. They are all great and I love Street Fighter II with a passion (i never got into tekken and mortal kombat) but all those different versions are confusing.

After watching some reviews, reading through this post, and checking some prices... I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get
F-Zero ($10), The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past ($13), Donkey Kong Country ($15), and Super Mario All-Stars ($15), which should come out to around $55 (including tax) unless i did my math wrong. If anyone has any suggestions on replacements or place to get the games cheaper, please tell.

Have you beaten both of them?

I've played both and I have to say Mana is overall a slightly better game. Evermore is also amazing and the style is fresh, but it isn't as well-thought-out as Mana was. Mana is one of those games that gets better exponentially (so you have to put some hours into it.) Evermore is the same, but Mana does it at a higher rate, IMO.

"Well let's not forget about Earthbound, please"

Again, I forgot about another game I used to enjoy. That series is totally goofy, unlike some of the other RPG's from around that era that try to be serious.

GAMESTER
"Have you beaten both of them?"

Evermore, yes, Mana, got pretty far, but I got stuck on something, I don't remember what and gave up. Something about an island to the north. I guess something that set me off from Mana was that it felt too much like a kids game. I'll have to give it another go when I've got the time. I do have to say, both games give me that "man, if I play this again, I have to go through that part again", feeling. One of the games that makes me feel that way the most is probably Legacy of Kain, on the part where you have to visit the oracle the first time (in the ice cave). That was mostly due to the loading times it took to change weapons, and you needed to use the mace (which can't kill anything, it only allows you to suck blood, and all the enemies in that level have the black blood that hurts you) to get through half of the obstacles in the level.

Secret of Mana is much better than Secret of Mana 2. I would say that Evermore is a better game as well.

Seiken Densetsu 3 just had prettier graphics. It was weaker in the fun department. Oh I think the difficulty was bumped up a tad, which is nice.

I've played both star foxes when they were new and had no trouble with what you mentioned on the SNES one.

The SNES one is by far more fun and the difficulty curve is much better. The 64 one is a childs game compared to it.

I think that's the only draw-back with nostalgia; people new to the games you used to love back in the day can't see what was so good about those gems. I love collecting retro stuff i never had the money for when i was a kid. One of the games i wanted most as a kid (but at the time seemed unnavailable due to price) was Heavenly Symphony (aka F1 On The Limit) on the Mega CD. I finally bought a Mega CD and the game a few months ago and wow.... how unplayable in this day and age?! lol

I'll still buy a SNES though, one day soon. From my memory it perfected 2D graphics and as an ex-SEGA fanboy i never had one back in the 90's

I never base my opinions on Nostalgia. I think Nostalgia is pretty retarded . . .

If I play a game when I'm young and think it sucks when I'm older I don't make excuses.

nor do i, but nostalgia is the magic that makes you want to play that game again after all those years. It's not retarded, really.

I don't have Starfox yet (see post previously) though after seeing it on YouTube again i think i would still find it playable. I played Donkey Kong Country recently and enjoyed that alot - my first time playing it, and i remember getting a promotional VHS with a copy of Match magazine once and watching it time after time again. I simply loved the look of it (in secret, that it - remember i was a SEGA fanboy! lol)

That's very skilled of you since nostalgia doesn't have an on/off-switch. And you're second statement doesn't even involve nostalgia. If it did, you wouldn't think it sucks when you're older.

I will never attempt to tell you this again.

Why am I even reading something from someone that cant use the words "your" and "you're" properly?

How does nostalgia not have an on/off switch? IF you want to play a game because you thought it was awesome when you were young you don't exactly get nostalgic from it when you play it again and it sucks.

There are plenty of games I loved as a child that I can't stand now. I guess nostalgia is stronger in some people. Then again I played a lot of shit games in my childhood. (no amount of nostalgia will ever make me play Bridge-it again)

Super Adventure island looks pretty cool, and has some outstanding music. (by Yuzo Koshiro of streets of rage fame) I might grab that one of these days.


PROOF

How much does the drumloop sound like 'Fighting in the street' from Streets of rage 1? lol

B.O.B. also.

lol, wasn't expecting this to turn into a SNES debate thread, but I don't mind

I hope to get a fair collection going, though I don't know how I'm gonna afford Harvest moon, Chrono Trigger, or Secret of Mana/ Evermore... Though I hear they are some of the best on the system...

None of the 3 Snes final fantasy games were even released in the UK (and i assume other pal territories)
but we got Final Fnatasy mystic quest!!!

I do own them for the Psone though and must say Final Fantasy 6 is absolutely brilliant.

Megaman X is great, though I probably enjoy Megaman X2 just a little bit better.

Super Metroid is one of my favorite games, I definitely recommend it.

Have you ever thought about Earthbound? Sorry but I had to mention it Earthbound sort of a hit or miss game for most people, so you might enjoy it, you might not. Earthbound is a classic turn based RPG. But generally, people who enjoy Earthbound aren't big RPG buffs. This is because Earthbound is so far out beyond the normal RPG stereotype of Dragons and Magic. Earthbound is all about quirkiness and humor.

I'm not a fan of Final Fantasy, but I love Final Fantasy 6, or Final Fantasy 3 as it will be called on SNES. I could never enjoy FF7 and all of that, but FF6(or FF3 on SNES) has always been a classic to me.

Ever played "Legend of Mystical Ninja" by Konami? It's on virtual console now actually. Really neat game, it switches between 8-directional and platforming in different levels. A very fun and goofy game, just like Earthbound.

Now you have Super Mario Kart on the list, for its time it might have been good, but in my opinion, it has aged TERRIBLY!

A Link to the Past is good as well but not at the top of the list of SNES games for me, I would prefer to play Super Metroid or Earthbound.

Overall, by buying into and SNES, your reliving the golden age of game the way it's meant to be played. Nothing compares to playing SNES games on an SNES. Virtual console and Emulating(especially emulating, which sucks all the fun out of the game) doesn't even compare. A couple years back when I decided to replay Earthbound on an Emulator, the first thing I did after beating the game was pop it in my Super Nintendo and play it from beginning to End again. And I was like, "Whoa, this is a totally different experience."

Edit
Oh forgot to include, Secret of Mana is awesome! Except, towards the end it gets a little messy. I had a lot of fond memories of playing it in cooperative mode with my Brother.

The sequel to it, Seiken Densetsu 3 is really really great actually, the most polished SNES game I ever played in fact. The draw back of Seiken Densetsu 3 is though, it only comes in Japanese... So you have to learn Japanese or play a translation of it on an emulator But occasionally, someone tries to market a translation of it dumped into a cartridge on ebay claiming its some sort of never released English Port. This is all a bunch of crap, but hey, if you buy it you can at least play SD3 on SNES without having to learn Japanese.

whoops nevermind, for some reason I thought you guies were talking about the NES.

Well when I think of the SNES I recall playing a game made by blizzard, black something I think, at a friends's house. Diablo was released not long after, and I remember looking at the blizzard logo and thinking to myself "wow these guies make awesome games ! They have got to be the best developer ever !". The irony is, warcraft, starcraft and wow were yet to be released.

2 was great . Some of the new upgrades were really cool.

3 is total garbage though . . . i seriously think the only reason it was popular is because you could play as Zero.

It might be a regional title, but I though the predecessor was called final fantasy adventure?

Johnny Look
"black something"
That would be Blackthorne, I was actually going to suggest that game, but it's not as well known as most games. It's a pretty awesome game, and I wish Blizzard would've done something else with it, rather than throw all their eggs in one gigantic blankcraftiablo basket. When was the original warcraft released? I though that would've been earlier than blackthorne.

Gamester
"3 is total garbage though . . . i seriously think the only reason it was popular is because you could play as Zero."
Why am I feeling deja-vu? I could've sworn someone else, if not you said this exact same thing at another time.

But yeah, #3 was pretty bad with it's music ripped off Guns n' Roses and all. One of the things I hated about #2 and 3 was the music, there is one particular instrument that stands out more than anything, and I'm not quite sure what it's called. They should've hired the guys that did the music for Megaman 2, and if it's the same guy, he's really washed up.

Speaking of which, has anyone else tried Megaman 9 and 10? I have both of them on my xbox, and I have to say, they're quite difficult. Some of the challenges that they have are almost like "haha, yeah right." They're something really obnoxiously annoying like "beat the game once a day for 7 days" or something like that. I mean, I like megaman and all, but damn.

Yeah I really like Megaman X 1 music, but I don't remember X2 and X3 . . . Can't really compare them to their NES Counterparts though .

It was probably me that said X3 was garbage. It is the most popular X game on the SNES, but by far the worst IMO. I was bored to sleep while trying to play it and am surprised that I finished it. The weapons are also really, really bland .

Ive not read all comments,

but there are good emu's on PSP and DS and Wii n PC, so why not look for the rom sets ?

I guess getting a snes controller on one of those systems isnt the easiest thing to do... closest I ever got was PS2 Controller on PC..

Games:
Link to the Past, -Hours of Frustration,
SMK - Weeks of Fun (and Multi player)

come to think of it, I wish I still had my SNES..
Used to play SF2 for Hours, then its was MK1, then eventually MK2, but SMK and Link ruled too...
