Summary: The Super Nintendo was my sixth video game console. The Fifth was the Sega Genesis 32X. I bought both at the Video Trading company in Johnson City,TN. The SNES has superb graphics and sound. The game play is good, comparable with the Sega Genesis. The SNES controllers are like the Nintendo controllers and Sega Genesis Gamepad controller. If I remember correctly, the SNES controllers had to be held at an angle to use them in the best way to play some games.
Pros: Easy to setup, Graphics, Game play and Sound
A brilliant console, probably the best console for its time.

Excerpt: This was the first game console i ever played on, and the first of which my family ever owned. It was also the 2nd mjaor Nintendo console, the first being the NES. Many people remember this as the first console to bring us the classics that live on to this day, the SNES and the NES being the most well-known consoles around, particularly popular for bringing the Super Mario series to our screens.
Pros: A large list of good games to buy, the games are fairly cheap now, reliable .
Excerpt: 16-bits of pure awesomeness is what this system consisted of. For an old gaming system that used game cartridges it was great! The graphics for how old this device is, is wonderful, I dare say it even out shines the Playstation one with some of its games like "Donkey Kong Country" SNES not reading a game just give the game a simple "blow job" and it will work just as good as it ever did. I still have mine to this very day and play it all the time.
Pros: Tough as a rock, will last forever and great graphics for its time period .
Cons: They stopped making games for them like 15 years ago lol
Excerpt: Whilst my loyalty will always lie first and foremost with the magnificent Sega Megadrive, there's no escaping the fact that the SNES is an equally brilliant console, and was in fact more powerful than the megadrive, with a lusher colour palette and more processing muscle. More than that though- like the megadrive it has a vast library of excellent and varied titles to play on it, unlike other games machines like the Atari Jaguar, a far more powerful machine that was...
Excerpt: It was a Christmas evening many, many years ago (I was probably 9, but in all honesty I do not remember exactly). After a family dinner we went out for a walk in the city which was beautifully decorated and full of stands offering Christmas treats and sweets. I remember my mother bought me a red helium balloon in the shape of the reindeer - that was probably the time when my father sneaked back home and "planted" the gifts under the tree and returned to us, I honestly...
Excerpt: While I had the Sega Mega Drive my younger brother had the rival to this console, the Super Nintendo. This was a fairly bulky box of a games system in grey and white with a slot on the top for games cartridges to be inserted in to, similar to the Sega, just below this was an eject button to enable you to release them.
Excerpt: In a nutshell, perhaps one of the greatest consoles ever to be released. The Super Nintendo is a 16bit system which was released between 1990 and 1993. It was the second console to be released by Nintendo and was a major success in the industry. It was released for around $200 in America and £150 in the UK. A snip compared to the price of modern games console release prices.
An amazing console which gave us the "golden age" of gaming.

Excerpt: The super Nintendo console in my opinion is not just the best nintendo console ever made but the best console ever full stop. It was the console that had so many timeless classics and so many great games for it. The super Nintendo was the follow up console to the brilliant Nintendo entertainment system console. It was first released in japan on November 21st 1990 and was available everywhere else by 1993.
Excerpt: To this day, the SNES represents my favourite chapter in my gaming. It created an emotional attachment that can only ever be made at a certain age (I was eleven) and depresses me for this very reason as I know it will never be surpassed. My relationship with the Super Nintendo was a slow burner.
