Let’s face it, this is one of the greatest systems every built with some memorable exclusive games like Super Metroid, Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country 1,2,3, Yoshi’s Island and so on. This was many nights and weekends of fun in the 90s. The sound was excellent, the controllers had a d-pad, 2 shoulder buttons, 4 face buttons, start and select. It was awesome. Most of the games have been ported over to Game Boy Advance or the Wii Virtual Console so you don’t need this grey box to play those old games. But… there are other consoles that play Super Nintendo games. I kid you not the Hyperkon Retron will play Super Nintendo cartridges.
