I think the word 'Super' was pretty impactful in the 90s. You'd see it a lot. Especially for things aimed at children/teens.

It started well before the 90s.  We already had Superman (for decades) and the sequel to Mario Bros was Super Mario Bros.  There was also the Judy Blume book Superfudge, the follow up to her book Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.  So yeah, it was a simple choice to show that something was even better than what came before it.

Would of been amazing if Nintendo kept Nintendo 64 name as Nintendo Ultra 64 but I guess they would call there games Super mario ultra 64 , Mario Kart ultra 64, Ultra smash bros?

Super Nintendo.



Gamecube - it's in fact only I actually like.



Super NES or SNES is perfect, it feels edgyer than NES which is a good thing for the '90s and delivers quickly the idea that it's a different platform as opposed to terms like "New" used on most recent consoles

I would said NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). I also liked Nintendo 64 name and Nintendo Switch is also great name, I didnt like Wii and GameCube, while Wii U is by far worst name.

Also when people say "Super Nintendo" they need to know that official name is "Super Nintendo Entertainment System".



SNES is the best Nitnendo home console for its time, nintendo has ever done.
