Retro Games Retcon part 2: SNES

As a child, I remember seeing the announcements for Mega Man 5 and 6 in Nintendo Power and feeling relieved that at least Mega Man wasn't jumping ship to the Super Nintendo. It was my first time witnessing the end of a console life-cycle, and I felt betrayed that all these franchises I loved were moving to a platform I didn't own. Then we got one.

The Super Nintendo was home to the largest number of my favourite games ever made, and because of that, made a huge impact on me well into my teen years. From 2006-2012, I waited patiently for Nintendo to release the complete library of my favourite titles from the SNES on the Virtual Console. And while they did pretty well, some games were never meant to be.

Sadly, some of these amazing games are also hard to find, making the SNES one of the most expensive consoles to retroactively collect for. Still, I'm going to do it, even if it takes a few years. What's awesome about new retro consoles is that they play European and Japanese games, so I can collect the weird little gems from overseas that used to only be playable as a rom.

So here's my list. 28 Super Nintendo titles. And please, if you believe there are games I'm tragically missing out on, let me know.
