Building My Perfect SNES Classic: Part 5

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
Part 4

Let’s continue with part 5!

Super Mario All-Stars

Yes, this is kind of cheating. However, this did come in one cartridge and these particular versions of these games don’t appear in separately. I feel no shame in including these classics.

Disney’s Aladdin

Not sure why this one doesn’t get much attention in hindsight. This is a gorgeous platformer that’s also a blast to play. Don’t expect to see this one on many people’s lists, but its spot is safe on mine.

Mortal Kombat II

The original Mortal Kombat has aged terribly. The SNES version was even worse at the time, as it didn’t feature blood. Mortal Kombat II fixed all of that. Up until the 2011 reboot, this was the pinnacle of the franchise and it’s still great today.

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
Super Mario All-Stars
Disney’s Aladdin
Mortal Kombat II

Come back soon for part 6!
