12 Super Ghouls n Ghosts (SNES)
13 Castlevania 4 (SNES)
14 Chrono Trigger (SNES)
15 Super Mario World (SNES) <--
Oh, I did have SMW. Guess I was wrong earlier when I said I was the guy who didn't have it..
16 Street Fighter 2 Turbo (SNES)
17 Romancing SaGa 3 (SFC)

My List:

1. Earthbound
2. E.V.O.: The Search for Eden
3. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
4. Actraiser
5. Super Metroid
6. Super Mario World
7. Final Fantasy IV
8. Super Mario RPG
9. Super Punch-Out!
10. Toejam and Earl

11. Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures - It's not just the namesake. This was a super innovative adventure game where you indirectly controlled Pac-Man and his mood by shooting his environment with a slingshot. There's nothing else quite like it.
12. Earthworm Jim
13. Shining Force - It's just as good as part two, if you ask me, but I played this one way more so it made my list.
14. F-Zero
15. Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninjas - An awesome soundtrack and a blast to play with two players.
16. Lemmings - Come on! You all remember Lemmings! It was great on the SNES.
17. Zombies Ate My Neighbors
18. Gunstar Heroes
19. Super Mario Kart
20. Super Castlevania IV
21. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time

22. Phantasy Star IV - A Sci-Fi RPG in a world of fantasy RPGs. IV was the best. It also retailed at like a hundred dollars, and that was 1980s money, so most people didn't get to partake. I played it because our family subscribed to the Sega Channel. It was an ahead-of-its-time cable service you'd plug into your Genesis, and it would give you a rotating selection of about 30 different Genesis games to play every month. I loved that service.
23. The Lost Vikings - You control 3 different Vikings, each with difficult skills, and organize their teamwork to get through the level.
24. NBA Jam (Tournament Edition, if we're splitting hairs)
25. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 - The only 16 bit main-series Sonic game that didn't make it. I preferred 3 to the others because I played with my brother a lot and I liked having Tails as something more than a clone/invincible tag-along.

I played it on the Commodore 64. I didn't even realize there was an SNES version. Great game.

If you liked Lemmings, you should absolutely check out Zombie Night Terror

Speaking of gaming, I binge-played Super Metroid this morning in one sitting. That very rarely happens but I've played through that game SO many times I just wanted to challenge myself or something. Note, it's a HELL of a lot easier to pick up all the E-tanks in Super Metroid than it is in Metroid: Fusion. Last time I played through Fusion, I only found HALF the tanks, and I can't even begin to dream of where all the other ones are at. You probably have to use your shine spark ability in some crazy way or something.

How did my #7 not make the LoC? I thought the low points were 16.

Good question. Should have been worth 19 points. What was it?

It was Super Double Dragon.  You're right, it should have been on there.  My mistake. 

I think it started to go wrong around #45.  45 is Super Castlevania 4 at 20 points and 3 lists.  That's correct.  Then it should have been:

46(A - C): Ogre Battle, James Pond II, Bravoman -- 20 points, each on 1 list at #6.
47: Sonic and Knuckles -- 19 points, 2 lists
48(A - C): Super Double Dragon, Cool Spot, Mortal Kombat -- 19 points, each on 1 list at #7
49: Breath of Fire -- 18 points 2 lists
50 (A-B): Quackshot Starring Donald Duck, Landstalker -- 18 points, each on 1 list at #8

Secret of Evermore, Kirby's Dreamland 3, and UN Squadron shouldn't have made the cutoff.

I think where I went wrong was that I mistakenly gave unfair weight to things toward the bottom that had low point value but were on multiple lists.  The abundance of single list ties in the 40s threw me off.

No.  I never played any Metroid until I played through Metroid Fusion, and even that was years after its release (played sometime around 2011 I think).  I very briefly played the original Metroid, and Metroid Prime around the time of their release, but that was VERY briefly, like for about 10 minutes.

I was the one who DIDN'T have SMW. Apparently I'm the only one who thinks that game is grossly overrated. SMB3 and Yoshi's Island are both FAR better games.

Nah.  It was Stethacantus.

It was Super Double Dragon.  You're right, it should have been on there.  My mistake. 

I think it started to go wrong around #45.  45 is Super Castlevania 4 at 20 points and 3 lists.  That's correct.  Then it should have been:

46(A - C): Ogre Battle, James Pond II, Bravoman -- 20 points, each on 1 list at #6.
47: Sonic and Knuckles -- 19 points, 2 lists
48(A - C): Super Double Dragon, Cool Spot, Mortal Kombat -- 19 points, each on 1 list at #7
49: Breath of Fire -- 18 points 2 lists
50 (A-B): Quackshot Starring Donald Duck, Landstalker -- 18 points, each on 1 list at #8

Secret of Evermore, Kirby's Dreamland 3, and UN Squadron shouldn't have made the cutoff.

I think where I went wrong was that I mistakenly gave unfair weight to things toward the bottom that had low point value but were on multiple lists.  The abundance of single list ties in the 40s threw me off.

When I saw the #50 tie with two games at 16 points, I was sure that any game on any list that was between #1 and #9 had definitely made the LoC. This was actually good luck because had a game needed 26 points or more to get on the LoC, then that raised the possibility that one console would dominate the LoC blocking out games from the others.  For example, the Horror Movie LoC began at 26 points, which meant that even your #1 film would need to be on someone elses list to make the LoC. This time around at least 9 of the games on a submitted list were guaranteed to make the final LoC, so no system was locked out. Not even the Turbo GrafX, which managed to get a couple of games in.

So I was expecting Super Double Dragon to make the LoC, and when it didn't show up with the other 19 point games, I thought that quite possibly it was also on someone else's list. When I saw that Super Metroid made the top 4 I began to think there had to be a mistake, because I knew Donkey Kong Country had to be in the top 4 ( because I had it at #8 ), and expected both Zelda and Super Mario to be in the top 4 as well. I wondered if it was possible that #1 would be a rare tie, with Super Mario World and Super Double Dragon


I was the one who DIDN'T have SMW. Apparently I'm the only one who thinks that game is grossly overrated. SMB3 and Yoshi's Island are both FAR better games.

Nah.  It was Stethacantus.

For the record, I omitted Super Mario World by mistake. I was going by the boxes on my shelf and forgot that SMW came as part of the SNES bundle, and has no box. I don't really know if I would have added SMW to my list anyway. I can't really remember exactly what it was like, other than the music ( which for the first time sounded like an actual piano. )

Well, in Super Mario 3 you didn't get to ride around on the back of a cute dinosaur, and Super Mario's world felt a lot more open to explore at any time. Also, SM3 was hard as hell. And as for Yoshi's island? I'll take the game that doesn't prominently feature a whining baby.

 I had a great deal when I bought my Super Nintendo. A store on Canal Street was selling the set bundled with Super Mario World and Super Mario All Stars. On top of that I had a manufacturers coupon from Nintendo for two free games ( both had to be less than $40 combined in retail value ) if I bought a SNES. And on top of that, the Canal Street store had their own offer. Two free games ( both had to be $20 or less, or one game that cost less than $40 ). So I went home with four new games along with the Mario Brothers games bundled with the SNES. Among those games I chose were Captain America & the Avengers ( a terrible port of the arcade game with stiff action and impossible levels ) another game called Drakkhen ( which was "the worlds first 3D RPG" if you like a flat world with only a few trees and a couple of flat castles you can't go in and no challenge ), The Simpsons: Bart's Nightmare ( which  was overall levels that were disappointing and unreasonably hard ) and Batman Returns. In the years that followed I gradually bought more games, with some help from Nintendo Power magazine to let me know which games were worth buying.  New releases cost anywhere from $50 upwards to $90. But if you waited long enough, the price on most of the games came down to about $20. But not all of them. The RPGs rarely came down in price.

I was able to buy about 55 games for the SNES before Nintendo phased the system out. My entire SNES library, including the two bundled games, are: The Adventures of Batman & Robin, Batman Forever, Batman Returns, Brain Lord, Breath of Fire, Bugs Bunny: Rabbit Rampage, C2: Judgement Clay, Captain America & the Avengers, Castilvania - Dracula X, Castlevania IV, Clay Fighter, Contra III: Alien Wars, The Death and Return of Superman, Demons Crest, Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong's Quest, Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, Doom, Drakkhen, Earthworm Jim, Earthworm Jim 2, Earthbound, F-Zero, Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, Illusion of Gaia, The Incredible Hulk, Lagoon, The Legend of the Mystic Ninja, Legend of Zelda - A Link to the Past, Lethal Enforcers, Lord of the Rings vol 1, Lufia and the Fortress of Doom, Mario Paint, Mega Man X, Mickey Mania - The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse, MTV Beavis & Butthead, Ninja Boy, Oscar ( this one was a birthday gift, from someone who paid $65 for a game no one ever heard of. ), Pitfall - The Mayan Adventure, The Simpsons: Bart's Nightmare, Ren & Stimpy: Veediots, Space Invaders ( Gameboy cartridge that unlocked the original game when played on the Super Gameboy ), Spiderman and Venom:  Maximum Carnage, Starfox, Sunset Riders, Super Double Dragon, Super Gameboy ( attachment that allowed you to play Gameboy cartridges on the SNES ), Super Godzilla, Super Mario All Stars, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Super Mario World, Super Mario World 2 Yoshi Island, Super Metroid, Super Street Fighter II, T2: The Arcade Game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, The Tick, Tinstar, Ultima - The False Profit, Yoshi Safari, Young Merlin, and Wolfenstein 3D. I never once rented a game, so these were the only SNES games I ever played. My 25 list were the games I remember having the most fun playing.

#25 F-Zero
#24 Mega Man X
#23 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
#22 Starfox
#21 Super Mario World 2 Yoshi Island
#20 The Adventures of Batman & Robin
Remember the Batman animated series on FOX? This game was based on it, with graphics that looked exactly like the animation from the series. It was part punch-em-up and part platform game, with a little bit of puzzle solving. And you got to fight The Joker on a moving roller coaster.
#19 Spiderman and Venom  Maximum Carnage
Another punch-em-up, taken directly from the comic book with both graphics based on the artwork, and gameplay that followed the comic book's plot. And a lot of guest superheroes. It is also the only Spiderman video game I ever completed.
#18 Contra III: Alien Wars
#17 Earthbound
#16 Pitfall - The Mayan Adventure
sort of a cruder version of Tomb Raider, but with the pitfall guy instead of Lara Croft
#15 Legend of Zelda - A Link to the Past
#14 Mickey Mania - The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse
Very similar to Bugs Bunny: Rabbit Rampage as the game is based on actual cartoons. In this case, each level had Mickey from a different era, and each was based on a classic animated short.
#13 Doom
#12 Ultima - The False Profit
Ultima was an open world RPG, which basically meant you were not forced to follow a specific story or unlock areas by finding objects. The entire world was accessable from the start, and you were expected to discover the quests for yourself. You could do anything you wanted. Want to go to North Brittany to build a balloon instead of fighting the dragon in the South who is about to destroy a village? No one is stopping you. Want to assassinate Lord Brittian on his throne with a crossbow while he is in the middle of telling your group about the quest he wants you to go on. Go ahead. You probably won't get out of the castle alive, but you will be laughing your ass off while the guards and the members of your own group mow you down with arrows. Since it is an open world RPG, I still have no idea if I actually completed the f*&king thing. All I know is I eventually ran out of stuff to do.
#11 Clay Fighter ( technically, it was the tournament edition, but was basically the same as the regular edition )
A mysterious clay meteor crashes into an abandoned amusement park, and for some reason clay fighters emerge from the devastation. Think Moral Kombat but with goofy claymation characters.
#10 Castilvania - Dracula X
#9 Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble
#8 Donkey Kong Country
#7 Super Double Dragon
When I first got my SNES I almost bought the only Double Dragon franchise game available for the system. Good thing I read the box, because it was a fighting game similar to ( if not a rip off of ) Street Fighter. I wanted the original Double Dragon, and not a one on one fighting game, so I never bought Double Dragon V. Amazingly, Super Double Dragon, which was exactly what anyone wanted from a Double Dragon game, had been released two years earlier, but for some reason was not available in any stores. Finally, a couple of years later Super Double Dragon was re-released, and retailing for $20. A short time later Technos filed for bankruptcy.
#6 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong's Quest
#5 Bugs Bunny: Rabbit Rampage
#4 Sunset Riders
#3 Earth Worm Jim 2
#2 Earth Worm Jim
#1 Batman Returns

I've played more than 20 games, but I didn't include any that I didn't actually consider to be good. I'm glad Donkey Kong Country made it so high up the list--it's one of my favorite games-- but the second one is better in every single way, and it's a shame some of you never played it. It's longer and it has a more diverse set of enemies, collectibles you actually want to find, unique bonus levels that are never the same challenge twice, even better music than the first game, and Dixie Kong.

2. Yoshi's Island
