http://kotaku.com/nintendo-announces-snes-classic-1796418700 25 years ago, I was a sophomore in high school, and used the money that I'd gotten for my birthday at the end of September to by my Super Nintendo. I had been looking forward to it for years, thanks to Nintendo Power hype, and it delivered on a lot of those promises. It was my primary gaming system for five years, until I switched to the Playstation (One) in 1997 for FF7 and others. Now, this September 29th, Nintendo will be releasing the SNES classic, filled with a lot of the games that I loved playing back in those days when I was in HS and college. Contra III: The Alien Wars Donkey Kong Country EarthBound Final Fantasy III F-ZERO Kirby Super Star Kirby’s Dream Course The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Mega Man X Secret of Mana Star Fox Star Fox 2 Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting Super Castlevania IV Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts Super Mario Kart Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars Super Mario World Super Metroid Super Punch-Out!! Back in the day, I played the living heck of of FF3, FZero, A Link to the Past, Secret of Mana, Street Fighter 2, Mario Kart, Mario World and Punch Out. I never seriously considered the NES Classic, but I am really thinking about this one.
