picking the 30 best SNES games... that weren't made by Nintendo, Square, Capcom and Konami



  • UN Squadron- one of the few decent shooters on the system.



  • @FutureCorpse True enough, although UN Squadron is also a Capcom game so we can't add it to the list :)

    current list:

    1. Soul Blazer
    2. Shin Megami Tensei If...


  • @Chocobop Forgot Capcom made that. I'll go Super R-Type.



  • Mortal Kombat 2 has gotta be on the list. 1&3 are also good candidates for the list.



  • current list:

    Soul Blazer
    Shin Megami Tensei If...
    Super R-Type
    Mortal Kombat 2



  • Soul Blazer
    Shin Megami Tensei If...

    Sure, the humor is quintessential 90s stuff, but there was amazing level variety that made this game a blast to play. It improved upon the first in just about every way, and I still enjoy a quick playthrough now and again.



  • Gotta add some Gemfire love. A very nice and enjoyable strategy/tactics game by Koei. One of my favorites in the genre.

    Lost Vikings

    Much like Blackthorne, in a few ways, but it was part of a whole sub-genre of adventure/puzzle games I loved on SNES.



  • Lost Vikings is a game I always think is underrated when I see top 20/top 100 lists. I feel it's an easy top 15 contender for best SNES games, and compared to my other favorites I don't even think of my appreciation as particularly out of the ordinary.



  • @Chocobop Nintendo did not make Donkey Kong Country. it definitely counts.
