    1. I agree that DKC1 and SSS were impressive at the time of their release, but the list is comprehensive and I think they were excluded because each of these games did surpass them in some way (for example Star Fox’s use of Mode 7).


      1. Yeah I can’t believe I got that free plus shipping and handling back in the day. Can’t remember exactly what we had to do but I remember my mom sending something in and getting it by mail. It was huge at the time cuz we could have all the Mario games on the SNES and enhanced at that. Fun times!

  1. In my opinion, I think Donkey Kong Country 2 should be on that list because it has many atmospheric levels like the ones from the lava world and ones from the swap world (world 3).


  2. Where the FUCK is Super Mario World, Super Metroid, and Chrono Trigger!? (If the Golden Sun games had been able to release during the SNES era on the SNES with the design they had on the GBA, that shit would be at the top of this list somewhere!)
