712th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Quintet Publisher: Enix I played Actraiser a long time ago, probably by getting through some random SNES games when I had a chance to – I don’t really know what attracted me to it, but I connected with it.

528th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Tokyo Shoseki Publisher: Nintendo It feels like there are a fair amount of tennis games on the list.

426th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo This game feels like one of those games everyone has heard of – as a SNES launch title, nearly everyone probably played it and has good memories of it.
