Great console the 16 bit king

"The best console ever made."

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System (most commonly known as the SNES) is definitely the best console ever made. Nowadays, it seems like the consoles’ creators base everything on graphics and all that loads of crap. The SNES had good graphical capabilities, but its amazing selection of games and lasting appeal is what really made it such a great console. In fact, I think it’s the best console ever made.

Graphical Capabilities: 9.5/10
The SNES’s graphics were awesome! At first, the games looked okay, yet still had some early games with great graphics (Zelda comes to mind). By the time the SNES had died out, its graphics were maxed out in a few games, and they were very impressive. (Take a look at Chrono Trigger) To add to the regular graphics, there was also the SuperFX and that ugly Mode 7 effect. Some games to point out are Chrono Trigger, Donkey Kong Country, and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island.

Audio Capabilities: 9/10
I shouldn’t have said capabilities, but whatever. Most games I’ve played have excellent music, including those classic Mario songs. I’d like to point out the RPG genre in particular, since most RPGs for SNES featured some excellent music. The Final Fantasy series especially had some awesome fitting music.

Game Library: 10
This is why the Super Nintendo is such a great system. It has just so much games in so many different genres. Super Nintendo was hot during the “Golden Age” of RPGs, so it of course had many great RPGs. Among them were Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IV through VI, Secret of Mana, Zelda: A Link to the Past, and even some that weren’t released in America such as Seiken Densetsu 3 and Tales of Phantasia. Other genres also had awesome games, like Donkey Kong Country. Sports games include Madden, NBA Jam, F-Zero, and others. Gosh, there’s just so many. If you have a Super Nintendo, your collection of games can’t be complete without at least one Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Donkey Kong Country, Metroid, Super Mario, and all of those other great games.

Lasting Appeal: 10/10
This system will always live on with me, no matter what, and I’m positive it still lives on with others. Why? There’s just no way I’m letting go of my rare Chrono Trigger, and I’m definitely not giving up my other games.

Final Word
Although it’s old, and it’s not rare and/or expensive. While no more games are in production, I’d still recommend that you buy a SNES. It has all of those great games, with great graphics and sound to back that up. After all, it IS the best system ever made. So go out and get one!

Brings back childhood memories. This console was built to last over a decade. My console is 20 years old, got it for £5.30 on auction, with £10 delivery. Absolute bargain. It came with no cables or controllers, but these were available on eBay for no more than £15 for everything you need!

The games are still so good for this console. Some are hard to find, such as Final Fantasy in PAL. Most games can be won for £5-15 and are well worth it.

Don't be afraid to buy a yellow console, it's just the original plastic they made the consoles with, it turns yellow over time. Later models were made with different plastic but it doesn't affect the unit in any way other than aesthetically.

Sound and picture were amazing for the time this was made, and they are still looking quite sharp on new flat screen tv's. Make sure you have your tv set as SCART or at 50Hz or it may only display black and white.

I advise you stay clear of cheap third party controllers and power supplies because the cables are very short and the controls are uncomfortable (if they even work properly).

I'm glad I purchased this console, and know that it will only increase in value the older it gets.

The super nintendo snes brings back a lot of good Memories. With it making a come back for you to have in a retro gaming room the value will shoot up. The wide range of games that are available you will lose track of time when playing it.

Simply the best retro games console money can buy. Massive game selection, better graphics than the Megadrive and instant controller response.
I would even say the newest consoles have something to learn from the EPIC SNES!
