Super Nintendo Led The Way With Great Games
The video game industry has exploded over the last five years. When I was a kid I remember playing an Atari and then a Nintendo game system. I loved both of these games systems, because they had games that were fun to play. However as much as I loved the games on those systems, when Super Nintendo came a long it blew all previous game systems out of the water.
Super Nintendo started many great trends for the Nintendo Company including Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Super Mario Kart, F-Zero, and others. The graphics on Super Nintendo are not very good to today’s standards, but when it was brand new it was very far ahead of any other systems at the time.
Super Mario World was a great game, because you could play it a very long time and still find new and different things that you could do. Super Mario World had quite a few different hidden items and games that would keep you entertained forever. Super Metroid was a game way ahead of its time in graphics and storyline. I used to love playing this game, because there was nothing else like it on the market at the time. Super Nintendo was able to give the Metroid series the graphics that it needed to do justice to the unique experience that the game was trying to allow the user.
I think my favorite game to play on the Super Nintendo was Super Mario Kart. I loved to play this game, not for the regular game mode, because that mode was too easy, but for the head-to-head mode. My cousin and I used to play this mode for hours, and we both developed very specialized techniques to pop each other’s balloons. F-Zero was also another great game that was ahead of its time. The graphics and speed of this game was very hard to match by any other game system available at the time. The Super Nintendo really hurt Sega’s chances of competing in the video game system market, and the main reason for this was the way that Super Nintendo led the way with great games.
