You should definitely play it, they aren’t as rare as they used to be. I just picked up my second NES and snes Classic last week.

How old are you? Its better for kids to enjoy it because there's mostly kiddy games on the system.

I'd be tempted to have a quick go on Star Fox 2 but I'm too old because I'm 29. I only play a few games in moderation these days and they're usually games with a sense of realism on my Xbox One. Online Multiplayer games are fun for the social side too.

If you're over 19 years old, I would recommend you to sell it. Maybe give it to one of your child relatives?

Its entirely up to you but I'm just giving my opinion.

Now that I'm playing it as an adult in 2018, I am starting to see how dated these games were. Not only does the art seem old, but there are many design flaws as well. A lot of the magic these games once had is kind of gone, being so displaced from their original time... it's a very strange feeling. I can still appreciate what these games did for their time, but I'm playing these games, many of them for the first time ever, right now.

...I actually think I might return it. But I want to try The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past first.

well now I'm curious which ones you're talking about. Any particular examples?

It looks so ugly compared to the famicom. The japs get all the good stuff

Wow, Ninja, chill out.

well now I'm curious which ones you're talking about. Any particular examples?

Perhaps I need to get more into them, but the games I played for a bit now are Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, Kirby Super Star, and Yoshi's Island. Movement with the D-pad is not as smooth as analog controls in modern games, and modern games handled d-pad controls better, so Mario Kart and Super Mario World were immediately disappointing. Super Mario World has a very limited moveset unless you have a power up. I get why that can be a good thing, but it doesn't feel very free or open. Yoshi's Island fared much better, but it doesn't take long to hit something annoying: the repetitive sound effects, the time it takes to drag a boulder all the way across the room just to leave it, the lack of natural discovery in the layout, etc. Kirby Super Star was kind of the same way, but I do recall there were better games than Spring Breeze.

I'm sure my experience will improve over time as I get used to the controls and design, but I don't have much time to really sink my teeth and invest in this thing. This was so I can have all my games back, including my first three of all time.

Mod it. Put a slew of amazing games on your SNES Classic, including Sega Genesis games, SNES games, Gameboy Advance, NES, and more retro gems!

Might I recommend adding Chrono Trigger to your collection of roms on the SNES Classic? Perhaps Donkey Kong Country 2, the superior sequel to the original?





Make sure you back up your original files from the SNES classic by emailing it to yourself or something like that!

Also, you want an analog controller for your SNES classic? Buy this:

....or something less expensive like a third party controller. It's worth it because of the endless library of games you can add to your SNES Classic with roms.

I posted back on August 1st about a great SNES style pro controller:

You can get the SNES/NES classic bluetooth adapter for it for $13.

I'm sure the sudden aggressive tone just means that PN secretly wants to date him and change his diaper in a loving way or something.

I finally got around to modding my SNES Classic with hakchi. It's surprisingly easy, and most games are compatible with the stock emulation on the system. I'll probably play those for a while and then get around to putting Retroarch on it for the other games that require it.

Pirate_Ninja you're just jealous of me because I'm a better gamer than you are

I don't think a "better gamer" (whatever that is) would write off an entire console because there aren't enough "mature games" on it.
