snes fans and no mention of super metroid! you guys should be ashame of yourselves. i love super metroid and probably my all time favorite snes game even to this day. all i played on the snes during those days was mega man,final fantasy and metroid most of the time when i was a kid. i still have my snes system and even though it's been through hell, it still works! i don't have it hooked up though cause i rather play on an emulator and my monitor. thing is the sound on these old games were amazing as well! i just didn't know when i was a kid cause i use to play it on an old cheap 20'' tv with an rf cable and didn't really care bout audio then. now super metroid at 2304x1440 and better audio codecs = mind frinkin blown!

i actually really liked other M a lot. i felt gameplay wise it went back to roots of the originals. felt more of a metroid game to me than the prime series ever did even though i love the prime series as well. only metroid games i did not like was hunters for the ds i believe it was called. never tried the pinball version of metroid but from one vid i remember seeing it actually didn't look half bad and possibly fun and good time killer. i didn't like hunters though and only metroid game i didn't like.

Please this is a SNES fan Forum Super Metroid's awesomeness is a Given :3 Plus I'm a SERIOUS Metroid fan! I've got Super Metriod all Three Primes and Other M, as well as the GBA games :D

 

And I liked the Prime series it was as much a Metroid game as Super Metroid, and I say that because DEEP down Metroid is a treasure hunting game! You play to explore the AWESOME and BEAUTIFULLY detailed worlds they build, and the power-ups are an added bonus, as well as a way to unlock more galleries. Still trust me Super Metroid is much loved... although I need a better Rom copy myself <.< SO Rex pm me where you got your's along with those nice[r] audio codecs

Still Snes is a good system, yea it's not the best [I can agree with you on Dream Cast, Shun Mue was epic beyound Words...] but what makes it nice is most of the good games take about 25-30 hours to play through. And a good bit of them have more than one story line which makes em even better!


MMX2 is where it's all at.

 

Also, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI (or III, whichever you prefer to call it), LoZ: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Seiken Densetsu 3, Star Fox, TMNT through Time, Tales of Phantasia, Super Mario All-Stars, and Zombies Ate my Neighbors.

Very nice SD3 and ToP are those rare gems that made getting into SNES roms worth while!

I'm a bit younger so I don't remember them costing that much but I heard about the prices back then.

 

My brother told me he would hope Killer Instinct was still at the rental store because he dropped it off the week before to play Donkey Kong Country.

 

 

 

 

And I've been enjoying some EarthBound lately

Virtua Racing on the Genesis was even more.  I think it was around $100.  I still have my copy!

Ah, the game that came with a VPU :D Great times I've had with mine, long after catching the bug of the arcade version.

This thread remind me of F-zero..one of the best racing games i played. 

post #26 of 150

I'm a fan, but don't have one frown.gif  But it was certainly a big part of my childhood.  Still love A Link to the Past, play it on an emulator from time-to-time.

I feel ya there, I'd hate to try to buy one nowa days >.>

 

thankfully my crazy step father got into a BIG Snes ebay faze 6 years ago... so I had alot of cool games come through our house, most we sold but one or two I kept, Secrect Of Evermore is still one of my favorites, I remember I had to clean 100 SNES games to keep it -.-, which eneded up taking me like 6 hours since we used q-Tips and Alchol... plus his process was time consuming

 

Still though the Wii makes a great SNES emulator imo! The classic Controller is alot like the SNES controller so it feels pretty natrual, and the games run fine!

That's cool!  Is that a hack of is it something officially supported?  I don't have a Wii so I didn't know it could do that.  PS3 nowadays.

It's homebrew, so I guess it's a hack. Simply put it uses the SD card slot to load boot files that install the software on you Wii, what you need is the HomeBrew Channel and from there you can find the Snes Wii software through Google, I might make a thread about it some where else later but, it is an enjoyable feature, load Roms onto an SD card and enjoy! I think you can use hacks but I don't like to,

 

but no it's not offically supported, in fact Wii Updates are designed to disable Home Brew Applications by installing "new" Firm ware on the wii so xD if you have any update higher than 4.3U I don't know what to tell ya ;3

 

Also WOW I didn't realize how awesome the Donkey Kong Country 2 OST was... and I beat that game... 6 times xD Jezze I remember my step brother beating that for the first time when we were like 6... 12 years ago! Thanks for the Share :3

I've seen a hardware "emulator" sold locally that is all those old 16-bit and 8-bit systems in one.  Like having the SNES, Genesis, etc. in one machine.  Not very expensive either.
