Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What are your top 10 favorite SNES games?

Time for some nostalgia! For most of us (I assume), the SNES era was an important part of our childhood. I too, grew up playing on my SNES, and to this day, have more fond memories of it than any other system. But even if I forget about the nostalgia, it cannot be denied that the SNES boasts an amazing library of absolute classics. Therefore, it was quite difficult to make a list, but here are my top 10 favorite SNES games!
