Vote for your top 10 games and they will be added to the standings. Your #1 game gets 10 points down to your #10 game that gets 1 point.

If your having trouble getting these games in cartridge format due to high prices.
The Japan versions are much cheaper.
As why I have Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy V in Japanese.
And if you own a Retron 5 you can download the English translation patches off the internet and play them in English on the Retron 5.
I bought Final Fantasy 6 on Gameboy Advance as its much cheaper than the Snes version.
Favs: Persona, Final Fantasy,Tales series PSN: Brian_2030, Xbox Live: SEGAnerd776
Waiting For: Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy 7 Remake

I already kinda regret this...

1. Donkey Kong Country 2
2. Super Metroid
3. Mega Man X2
4. Mega Man X
5. Super Mario World
6. Turtles in Time
7. Contra 3
8. Super Castlevania 4
9. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
10. Super Mario RPG

Usually I have trouble ranking things past #4 or 5, but with the SNES the whole list is freaking impossible. Too many great games left out, too many top quality games that deserve #1. I don't even think I have a favorite SNES game.

DKC2 at the top because... I dunno, eenie meenie. I guess it deserves more points in the Top 100 rank, so that's my official reasoning.

I go back and forth between Mega Man X and X2. The sequel is more open, so I gave it a little bit of an edge this time.

As seen in the poll thread, Contra 3 vs. Super Castlevania 4 (vs. Turtles in Time) on my list is a tie. That part of the rank is random, basically. All three games are equally amazing.

1. Chrono Trigger
2. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
3: Final Fantasy III
4: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
5: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
6: Super Mario World
7: Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
8: Super Metroid
9: Super Mario All Stars
10: Mega Man X

Having SMAS in the list almost feels like cheating considering it's four previously released games. MMX gives SMB3 a real run for it's money but can't take on all four games combined.
