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.January 13, 2010 at 9:20 AM #8722
I’d say Lufia I & II,
The Twisted Tales of Spike McFang
Kirby’s Dream CourseJanuary 19, 2010 at 2:57 AM #8723
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.January 20, 2010 at 9:34 AM #8724
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 =PJanuary 23, 2010 at 3:19 AM #8725
Mario Kart. The original. It started an entire frachise of historic games in the Mario series.January 24, 2010 at 8:42 AM #8727
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 ? 😛January 24, 2010 at 3:56 PM #8729
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.January 24, 2010 at 6:02 PM #8730
True. MK was a little to popular. I should’ve thought of thatJanuary 27, 2010 at 12:29 AM #8734
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.January 29, 2010 at 2:58 AM #8737
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

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?February 7, 2010 at 5:56 PM #8756
Well, I’m sure I’ll miss some, but just glancing over at my collection…Chrono TriggerDonkey Kong CountryFinal Fantasy IIFinal Fantasy IIILegend of Zelda: Link to the PastMega Man XSecret of ManaSuper Adventure Island IISuper Castlevania IVSuper Mario RPGSupre 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?February 7, 2010 at 6:08 PM #8757
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.February 7, 2010 at 6:46 PM #8761
i honestly dont know any 16-bit under-rated games or hidden games.the only one i know is earthbound (my favorite game and series), but thats already coverd.February 9, 2010 at 7:43 AM #8767
How about Soul Blazer(prequel of Illusion of Gaia) or Romance of Three Kingdoms (back when i played this game I had no f-bomb clue of what to do in this game), but I still managed to do some crazy shit
