The best Super Nintendo game is, hands down, Donkey Kong Country. Some people might say it’s Earthbound, which may very well be true, but I never played it as a kid.
Not gonna lie, I have no idea how I played this game as a kid. I downloaded a SNES ROM onto my laptop a couple of months ago and found Donkey Kong to be intensely difficult; to the point of me raging a bit.
I always always always always used Diddy Kong. I think it was at this point in my life that I decided that on a whole I enjoyed the smaller and faster characters than bigger and stronger characters. Huh, go figure.
I’m pretty sure, but not 100%, that Star Fox 64 is the first game I ever finished. Mostly because Donkey Kong Country was way too hard for a kid my age.
When I was a kid, I was obsessed with airplanes so, naturally, I was engrossed with this game. I distinctly remember beating it without cheats, then asking my mom to buy a Game Shark which gave me unlimited health and anything else you could want. All I used it for was to get blue double lasers because I felt like I was cheating the game too much.
Out of all the Star Fox games that were ever released, this is definitely the best. I enjoyed (and probably still could enjoy) everything about this game from the secret warp gates to take you to different paths, to the odd battle with Andross’s giant floating brain. Seriously, wtf at that.
A funny thing about finishing games and me: I don’t really do it. I’ve played through most of the “story” games I have, but have finished few. I got to the section of “free roam” in FFX and just said fuck it and stopped playing out of sheer laziness. I only played the MW2 one player campaign until Favela, but I have logged something like 11 days playing multiplayer online.
