    After work I popped into a second hand music/general electronic goods shop. I saw a SNES and decided to buy it on impulse. I didn't grow up with a 16 bit system, I has a Master System and than a PS1 so missed out on that generation all to together.

    All I have with it is Super Mario World. It's also yellowed a bit unfortunately but I can fix that. Apart from that I like the look of the system and the controller is nice. It took some getting used to though, it has been years since I've touched a home console controller without analog stick.It feels comfortable in my hands. SMW looks alright on my HDTV which is good, though I was expecting it to look like arse so I guess having low expectations is a good thing. So yeah, now I have a SNES. Plaving it on my setup is slightly painful cos I don't have much space but whatever.

    I want to get some gaems for it when I get paid. I know I want Mario All Stars. After that I'm not too sure.A lot of gaems were never released in Europe plus some gaems can go for a quite a lot. Or at least more than what I'm willing to spend So yeah if anyone knows some decent gaems which go for a reasonable amount (sub £15) than feel free to suggest away. Or what a goof flashcart is and where I can get it.

    tl;dr: I bought a Snes and 1991 want it's thread back.

    By the way, it games. Not gaems. Try Illusion of Gaia. It is really good action RPG.

    The SNES advantage was a great controller if you want a joystick.

    Yes!
    I don't remember anything good from that era because my taste was crap.
    "I want to rent James Pond Olympics again."

    "Really, what about buying this Final Fantasy III, I hear it's good? It's only 3 dollars..."

    "Does is have a fish in a tuxedo vest?"

    "No, but"

    "WELL THEN I DON'T WANT IT."

    The most fun I ever had with the SNES in that era, I think, was Turtles in Time. It's not exactly the same as the arcade version, but it's not a garbage arcade port like every fighting game from that era. (well, supposedly SFII was OK, but... meh).

    Also Uniracers, which I believe is called something else in Europe.

    Turtle in Time was a great game !
    and if you like Racing games I liked Biker Mice better than F-Zero.

    and of course the good old rpg's like Terranigma and Lufia and so on ...
    maybe get some good rom packs and just buy games that are really good ?

    You are wrong. It's spelled "gaems".

    Congrats on your purchase. I was going to suggest Mega Man X - X3 but the prices are just a little over your budget.
    X ~60 GBP
    X2 ~50 GBP
    X3 ~90 GBP

    Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, I have got one old copy of that for only $5, and if you're really lucky like me, you can get TLOZ: A Link to the Past for only $9.
    Another good title for a cheap price is Zombies ate my Neighbors or Alien 3, the price is only worth if they are cheaper than $10

    I know its probably way, and I mean way out of your price range but you could get a sd2snes here http://shop.retrogate.com/SD2SNES-SD2SNES.htm
    Its a flash cart for the snes. If you would rather download the games for free and play them with the original hardware. This is just a suggestion, if you would rather buy the legit games instead. I can understand that so yeah.

    I wonder if Snes flash carts will ever support S-DD1 or SuperFX

    Earthbound is probably my favorite SNES game, but it fetches for an insane price of around 200$

    I would personally take Colt's advice and buy a flashcart.

    Buy EarthBound if you want to waste 200$ on a game, or just buy a SNES flashcard.

    Holy hell.... recommend list for SNES....

    1st party, Mario all of them, Yoshi's Island, Super Metroid, Donkey Kong Country all of them but #1 is the best one in my opinion. Super Metroid, Star Fox, Mario Kart, Super Metroid, Zelda, Pilot wings, F-Zero, did I mention Super Metroid? lol (Sorry I had too it's just the game is phenomenal from start to finish.)

    3rd party... So god damned many, Super Castlevania IV (some people say its better than SOTN, I don't agree but it is still fantastic.) Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Mortal Kombat 2/3, Killer Instinct, Gradius III, Final Fight, Zombies Ate my Neighbors, Final Fantasy III, Chrono Trigger, Super R-Type, Axelay (so hard...) Contra III, Drakkhen, Joe and Mac, King of Dragons, Sim City, Shadow Run, Super Adventure Island, Super Bonk, Super Ghouls and Ghosts, Super Star Wars (all of them are great)

    Also if you can find one, a GameGenie is reallllly fun with Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo... lol Mid air moves and all kinds of crazy codes.

    I skipped so many it's not even funny... but those could keep a person busy for months.
