Product Description

80s kids were sure that video games couldnt get better than the NES. Then the 90s happened and the Super Nintendo hit the scene. With 8 more bits, 4 more buttons and no more cartridges blowing, the Super Nintendo set the standard for 16-bit gaming. For 10 years, the SNES was king. Even as 32-bit systems tried to steal the show, the Super Nintendo proved that gaming genius was about more than technology: it's just about fun. Remind yourself how much fun the SNES is. This refurbished SNES console is guaranteed to work upon arrival or weâ€TMll send you another one. It comes bundled with 1 controller and hookups. .

After Sega unleashed the 16-bit Genesis, Nintendo was at a crossroads because their classic 8-bit Nintendo system was dying out. So Nintendo makes their own 16-bit system, but used a much better graphics and sound chip than the Genesis had, and remained the top system until Sony's Playstation came out in 1996. What made the Super NES kick so much was its outstanding library of games. The first party titles were out of this world, not to mention the system also had some of the best RPG's to date on any system. All in all, if you can find a Super NES anywhere, I highly recommend buying one, its a piece of video game history, and Nintendo has not been able to make a better system yet. Below is a list of games that are also recommended to get along with the system for the best playing experience:
Super Metroid
Super Mario World
Yoshi's Island
Super Mario Kart
Final Fantasy 3
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Contra 3
Super Mario All-Stars
Street Fighter 2 Turbo
Tetris Attack
Donkey Kong Country
Earthbound
Chronotrigger
Super Mario RPG

If you don't like this system, there are two possibilities:
A. You are insane
B. You [didnt find the good] games
To prevent B, I shall list some games that I reccomend:
Super Mario World (It's really a mark in this system's legacy.)
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Super Mario All-Stars (Or, scratch World and All-Stars, and get the version that has World + All-Stars on one cartridge)
Super Mario RPG (WONDERFUL RPG for beginners. Highly reccomended.)
Megaman X (Probably the best Megaman game ever.)
Chrono Trigger (A must for RPG fans.)
F-Zero (You know you like racing down a highway at 800 MPH..)
Donkey Kong Country 1-3 (Rare's masterpieces, how could you not love 'em?)
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (The only Zelda on SNES. Enjoy.)
Secret of Mana (A Gauntlet Legends-like RPG. Gotta love it.)

The Super NES is the best video game system by Nintendo, bar none. While it had a slower processor than the Sega Genesis (in which case future games had "FX chips" to enhance the games), it had better graphics and sound quality. Why is this system among the best? Obviously, the games are what count. No matter how advanced Nintendo gets, the Super NES has the most of the best video games ever made by anyone.
Here's a list of some of the classics: Super Castlevania IV, Contra III, the Super Mario series, Super Turrican (a rare and often overlooked gem), Super Metroid, Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy III, Tales of Phantasia, the Mega Man X series, U.N. Squadron, Zelda: A Link to the Past, Breath of Fire I and II, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Starfox, Super Mario Kart, the Donkey Kong Country series, Super Mario RPG, Street Fighter II (probably the best one to get is Turbo, but Super Street Fighter II is also worthy) series, Ninja Gaiden Trilogy (which is basically Ninja Gaidens 1-3 from the NES system), Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time, and Rockman and Forte (a.k.a. Megaman and Bass). There are plenty more that are also worthy classics, but I thought I'd mention these above to get you started (although Tales of Phantasia and Rockman and Forte would be hard to get, considering they're only available in Japan for the Super NES). So don't vote NO because I forgot one game.
Is this the best system? Maybe that's not true, but those times were the best; the rivalry between Nintendo's Super NES and the Sega Genesis was considerable. Both had extremely enthralling games that were of great quality (Nintendo had Mega Man and Mario, Sega had Sonic and Vectorman). So depending on your preference, you might want one or the other. As far as I'm concerned, both are a must-have. The days of Genesis vs. Super NES are the best in video gaming history. I say this as a true gamer; those were the good ol' days.

Verified Purchase
I bought this console from comer53, and it arrived in great condition with everything included, along with 4 games. I didn't get a chance to leave the seller good feedback, so I'm posting this. :) I've had a blast playing Super Mario World, and Donkey Kong Country... I recommend this product to anyone who loves playing video games, it brings me back to when I was a kid!

Sure, it's now outdated by N64 and Game Cube, but, if you missed out on SNES (were too young when it was in it's time) you should get a SNES rather than a PS2, Game Cube, Xbox or whatever. This console is from when people made sure their games were perfect and didn't compete to hav ethe greatest graphics. If you don't have one, get it and you will enjoy the great library of games, such as: Final Fantasy 2 and 3 (considered the best by many), Mario All Stars (Mario 1-3 and Lost Levels with better graphics), Super Mario World, Earthbound, Legend of Gaia, Harvest Moon, etc. Soem of them are being ported to GBA, but you can get a SNES for [cheap] in perfect condition. This is the best console ever. (Nothing can touch the Personal Computer for games)
