    Though my collection of SNES and Genesis games is rather robust and only serves to reaffirm my status as a big man, there are a lot of games from the 16-Bit era that I’ve never played. I was wondering if anybody out there is willing to suggest a few games I might want to look at for future reviews. I’ll be sure to give them a try and see how good they are.

    I’d say Lufia I & II,

    The Twisted Tales of Spike McFang

    Kirby’s Dream Course

    Oh man, Twisted Tales of Spike McFang. You’ve been reading my list. I loved that game back in the day – It’s certainly coming at some point.

    Kirby is always good for some fun. And though it may sound crazy, I’ve never played any of the Lufia games. I have no reason why not, I’m just a schmuck, I guess. I’ll have to try them soon.

    Hehe, there were also a couple others, but i can’t remember the names.

    Twisted Tales of Spike McFang sure was entertaining.

    I could easily say the Breath of Fire series, but too much of the RPG genre already =P

    Mario Kart. The original. It started an entire frachise of historic games in the Mario series.

    MK was really popular though, i think the 16 bit gem is more like "not so/well known" games

    Take "EVO" for example, I persoanlly never heard of it…

    Illusion of Gaia, and Actraiser 1 (2 sucked, even though i was a glutton for punishment and beat it) for example, i have friends who never heard of em, and i played those games so much.

    Roo… ever thought about Sim City ? 😛

    What i would really love to see a review being made off is Secret of Mana, but since that isnt a hidden 16 bit gem, i do have some other suggestions.

    Terranigma and Equinox for example.

    Or Desert Strike and Desert Fighter. I can still remember the day that my dad took me to the local game store to let me buy the first game when i was a wee lad only to find that he store owner brought out Desert Fighter instead of Desert Strike (because apparantly that is what i said then, damn exitement), which turned out to be a good blow-up-stuff-in-a-desert-setting game aswell.

    And even though it has been said already, but i can also recommend Lufia II. Loved it when i played the dutch version back in the day.

    True. MK was a little to popular. I should’ve thought of that

    SimCity was perhaps my favorite game on the SNES until at least Link to the Past came out. Sadly, I think a lot of people may have played it… 🙂

    Lufia II and Terranigma are also on the list. But you are right airblade, there are a lot of RPGs on the list (can you tell I’m a big fan of the genre?). That coupled with the fact that they take a long time to play through, record, write scripts for, edit… yeah, I wouldn’t mind reviewing some lighter fare.

    These are all good suggestions. Keep ’em coming, guys.

    MMM yeah, RPG used to be my favorite genre until FF8(worst FF ever), and ff6 still my favorite game ever. Now I’m more into FPS, since I haven’t played any good RPGs lately.

    The Legend of the Mystical Ninja

    Rock and Roll Racing

    The Super Star Wars Trilogy

    Pocky & Rocky

    Roo, I have a question for you. I recently aquired an SNES. Besides all the games you have reviewed in your series, do you have any recomendations?

    Well, I’m sure I’ll miss some, but just glancing over at my collection…

    Chrono Trigger

    Donkey Kong Country

    Final Fantasy II

    Final Fantasy III

    Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past

    Mega Man X

    Secret of Mana

    Super Adventure Island II

    Super Castlevania IV

    Super Mario RPG

    Supre Mario World (do I even need to put that on the list?)

    Super Metroid

    There are a few more I can come up with, but they’re coming up as 16-Bit Gems… so, gotta wait! The funny thing is that some of the games I really spent a lot of time with (SimCity, Civilization) can be played on the PC with a much better interface, and for free. Ah, progress.

    What genre game do you most enjoy?

    Theres no one genre I can lay down as my favorite. I mean, there are some I don’t like. One thing I for some reason, don’t enjoy is games that are realistic. I know it’s not 16-bit, but my brother is addicted to COD Modern Warfare 2. I always found the thought of killing real people to be kind of sick. I think it’s more fun when theres a completely new world to explore. Not something real. I play video games to get away from the real world.
