Playing With Power: The 25 Best SNES Games of All Time

16. Pilotwings (Nintendo, 1991)

Mario wasn't the only reason people snagged a Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1991. PilotWings features various activities to take part in, including flying a light plane, skydiving, riding around on a rocket belt, flying in a hang glider, shooting down things in a helicopter and other bonus events. The Mode 7 graphics really give you the feeling of flying, falling and, in some extreme instances, crashing into the ground.

    Didn't really play most of those but the ones that i did play were not only the best games on SNES but some of the best ever.... but i did notice killer instinct wasn't on there......

    Aw... where's Megaman X? Great list, by the way, I found myself nodding in agreement a lot towards the end.

    very good list. but i think a lil mario allstar power would have fit perfectly. and mario world shouldn't have been number 1# i agree its should have been zelda. but thats just me... good work most_out!

    Goos list, just one problem. Wheres Secret of Mana?!? That's one of my favorite rpg's and games of all time. I'd say it definitly makes the top 25 list in my opinion.

    oh and by the way i wasnt saying, cause it was a girl it was a bad thing im just saying it was the only real good thing because there werent, and still arent very many games where a girl is the main character I just want to clarify that, is all.

    aside from metroid and a few other stinkers this list is quite correct, I wouldnt exactly give mario #1, the game itself was simple, mario is a simple character ... you know like, his backstory and such, he's just a regular plumber, where as characters like Terra, Locke, Chrono, Lucca (im not a squaresoft fanboy srsly) are just harder to get into and require more time, and patience... If you gamed a little but not a lot then this list would be dead on. As for dissing metroid, sorry but, corny, slow, cornycornycorny okay its a girl, still corny = boring.
