This is the new and updated SNES-Essentials topic.​

The layout will be the same as that of my other lists and the rules are:
Rules by Dice said:
If there is a game already on the list that you think should not be there let me know and it'll have a point removed (so if there are more negative than positive votes then the game will be removed entirely off the list).

You may also recommend some more games in a future post but: (1) you must not repeat any game you have already mentioned and (2) you must make a new post, do NOT edit your previous post as it may not be seen.
All games will be sorted alphabetically as I decided that I won't show the exact number of votes for each game.

I tried my best to sort out all naming differences, but I couldn't find any equivalent for the following games (GoodSNES 2.04):
Ghost Sweeper Mikami Gokuraku Daisakusen
King Arthurs Quest
Mega Man 8
Shooting Macross
Super Metroid Redesign
If anyone can provide more info on them, please post.

Used game codes are:
(NG-Dump Known) = No good dump has been found
(NP) = Nintendo Power exclusive
(BS) = Broadcast Satellite (Satellaview) ROM
