The SNES has got to be my favorite system. It was back when games were games, where you got a little realism but not too much and it was FUN. It had a few masterpieces on it and here are my favorite 5.
It started Mario's second official and major game series where you can go it alone or a friend and race around the Mushroom Kingdom. Turtle Shells and Star Man are your weapons, Cape Feathers and Mushrooms are your tools. A blast that some people consider being better then the later and spiffier games.
Back in it's humbler roots Final Fantasy was starting to show it's soap opera and wishy washy characters that would mar the later sequels but here it was still kept down and still a fun game. Take your hero Cecil around the world, under it and beyond to save the crystals that will be perverted to serve evil.
Link's 16 bit treatment was the only time Link made the jump onto the SNES but what a quest it was. Help Link save the royal bloodline of Hyrule before it's too late and travel between Hyrule and the now twisted Golden Land to vanquish the Wizard Agahnim and his evil.
Platforming with monkey's turned out to be a blast, a very tough blast as it would prove as you take Diddy and Dixie to rescue Donkey from Crocodile Isle. Ramped up the already impressive graphics and sounds from the previous game and improved the gameplay considerably. A fun game to be sure, but also a challenging one.
