What are the "must play" SNES games? Help build up my gaming repertoire!

(1/4) > >>

My first ever console is the Xbox 360 and I only got that when I moved to the US 4 years ago.
As such, I never got to play the supposed "milestone games" of the SNES.
Now that I'm able to, I wanna track down and play some of the greats of the SNES era.

I've already played these:

Chrono Trigger
A Link to the Past
Breath of Fire I
Breath of Fire II

What other classics from the SNES should I play?

Alrighty then, heheh:

Super Mario World
Kirby's Dreamland 3
Kirby's Dreamcourse (If you're into golf games)
Donkey Kong Country 1,2 and 3. (Especially 2)
Gradius III
Parodius if you want a sillier Gradius
The first three Megaman X's
Super Castlevania IV
The Secret of Mana
Super Mario RPG
Super Metroid
Pocky and Rocky if you want Touhou before Touhou was a thing. (It's a really underrated gem)

And if I remember any more I'll post it here.

Edit: Just remembered two more amazing games:
Gunstar Heroes and Wild Guns.
These two are some of the best games of their genre.


* Megaman X (1 to 3, I think)
* Super Mario All Stars
* Star Fox
* Contra III - The Alien Wars
* Super Mario RPG
* Super Metroid
Those are the ones I've played and wholeheartedly recommend.

(I'm gonna keep my eyes on this thread as well. Gonna play some SNES games yeah.)

I also posted this topic on another site but since they kinda don't like pirating, I kinda danced around the fact that I'm mostly gonna pirate these games and they only recommended things that are easier to get.

Since most of us came here from RomU, I'm hoping this doesn't apply here, so recommend away before I set off on the high seas! :)

I assume you're playing it on a PC via certain methods. If that's the case, then you can connect you Xbox 360 controller to your PC and play with it.
