Building My Perfect SNES Classic: Part 4

Shortly after my hype subsided from the announcement of the NES Classic, my immediate thought was, “What if Nintendo makes an SNES Classic?!” That system has a special spot in my heart for being a critical part of my gaming life as a 90s kid. It also doesn’t hurt that the games on this console are some of the greatest of all-time.

In this 10-part series, I’ll highlight three games that I would like to see in a hypothetical SNES Classic.
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

Let’s continue with part 4!

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

What more can be possibly said about this masterpiece? Love it to bits and have played through it multiple times. Unless you’re a diehard hater of the franchise, this needs to be on everyone’s personal SNES Classic.

NBA Live 95

Before 2K Sports took over the video game basketball world, EA ran the show. Their dominance began with NBA Live 95. Played from an isometric perspective, it played at a very fast pace and was quite authentic for the time. Still love to play this one when I hook up my SNES.

Contra 3: The Alien Wars

What a stud. The original game’s place in history is cemented, but I think Contra 3 is a bit overlooked. Building off of its predecessor, this is the equivalent of an Arnold Schwarzenegger fever dream movie with action so bombastic that it’s rarely been topped in the video game realm.

In summary, the games on this list so far are:

Super Mario World
NHL 94
Donkey Kong Country
Super Punch-Out!!
X-Men Mutant Apocalypse
Super Metroid
Street Fighter II Turbo
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
NBA Live 95
Contra 3: The Alien Wars

Come back soon for part 5!
