Demon’s Crest! The best looking game on the system and severely underrated. The definition of a “hidden gem”.


#3

Considering my recent acquisition of a cart for LTTP, I will vote for this.


#4

I vote for super casevania 4 or super turrican directors cut (someone dump it please!)


#5

I’ve never beat Super Castlevania IV. I’m down.

I don’t have demon’s crest and by the looks of the price I never will. Would have to play on the SD2SNES.


#6

Glad to see these lets plays from the old forum is getting a new life here.

I would probably vote for Link to the Past, but Im fine with all the mentioned games really. Demons Crest looks and sounds amazing, but i think the level design and power ups are not that well thought out actually. Still a great game of course, but not among the elite on the system imo.


#7

I’d probably vote for something a little less mainstream, not that LttP isn’t amazing, but I would assume that most of us have played it many many times.

If we do LttP, I might end up playing it on GBA. I would have way more time in bed at night to get through the game vs downstairs in my retro man cave.


#8

I’m going to throw my hat into the ring and suggest Tiny Toon Adventures- Buster Busts Loose!

Solid platforming, very tidy sprite work, fun mini-games, incredibly varied level design / structure and neither too obscure nor too mainstream. Right up there with Konami’s best efforts of the 16-bit era imho.


#9

actually just started replaying lttp a few days ago! I think you’re either going to a need an executive decision or a strawpoll to make this decision though :smiley:


#10

I’m going to throw this one out there:

Kirby’s dream course. It’s freaking amazing and actually very challenging. It would be cool to compare shots and scores too.

And the multiplayer is sublime.


#11

I’ve been meaning to do a LTTP replay. With the SNES Mini it should be quite convenient with save states.

I actually only ever played it through once in colour lol.


#12

I’m going to keep nominating Turtles in Time until it happens.


#13

That was the first game I beat this year.


#14

Hope you’re ready for a RTTP :smiley:


#15

You used a black and white TV in the 90s?


#16

At the start yes, until 1994 I think. Relatively poor family, and I got the B&W in my own room as a hand-me-down. Could use the colour TV in the living room sometimes but obviously my room was better. I borrowed the game from a friend, and I had to memorise potion colours by position lol


#17

I have fond memories of spending my summer holidays playing smash 64 in my friends garage on an old black and white TV over RF. I think it was maybe 13" but we didn’t care back then. Now I’m a fucking asshole and never have as much fun as I did back then using RF.


#18

Magical times from days past.


#19

One of these days I’ll play through ALTTP. I played ALBW but never the original. I know I’m weird


#20

I’ll happily play through LTTP, great timing now that my setup is complete too.
