And don't say Genesis. :steamed: .... :supergrin:

Even if Genesis was your fave back in the day vs. SNES, that's not the comparison I'm looking for. Just bouncing this NES vs. SNES thing out there cuz I'm considering an investment in one or the other - so, if you were stranded on an island that just happened to have electricity and a functional CRT television, would you rather have, an NES or an SNES to play on, and why? (assuming you could have any games for the system you wanted)

Also don't get into emulation - the whole point of my interest is playing on the actual hardware, as God and Shigeru Miyamoto intended.


I'll reply sometime later with my own vote.

I'd say NES. I don't have one anymore, but I still have a couple of the games. Zelda and Battle of Olympus. If you get a system, I'd be happy to send my old games to you.:wavey:

Though, I have replaced the pin thingy, so now I don't have to get lightheaded from blowing in the cartridges.

I had the 16 bit console (SNES?). I had Mortal Kombat and the wife played the Mario Brothers games. I remember Super Mario World very well.

I considered Mario Brothers a "girls game". Wife would play it and get frustrated. So one night I'm watching her play. She has to time a leap from a spring and jump over a river. She continually missed, getting poor Mario killed, so I made some comment to the effect she was starting her jump too early.

In her frustration she said, "Well if you think you can do better, you try it".

Big mistake. I became a Mario Brothers addict and would often play well into the wee hours until I had defeated all the games they made for that console. Couldn't get enough.

Lots of memories with that thing. I still have it, whether or not it still works I am not sure. If I ever get a hankerin' to play some classic video games, I use an emulator.

All the Mario games...and YES I actually thought Mario 2 was great!

SNES


The breadth and depth of games vastly increased with the SNES. While Super Mario 1 & 3, Legend of Zelda, and Metroid (others too) games were groundbreaking on the NES, the successor games for the SNES are better. Then there are other entries in the genres pioneered on the NES; Chrono Trigger for example, is just awesome.

Why not buy both? Theyre not that expensive.

But between the two, id get the SNES.

And btw, they just came out with a handheld that plays SNES games if anyone is interested.

There were some good games and memories on the NES, but there were more great games on the SNES.

There are only a handful of games on the NES I would really enjoy playing today, and most of those have re-releases, improved sequels, or better games in the same style available on the SNES.

Systems are not that expensive. But SNES games, particularly the 1st party Nintendo games and the better RPG's, are VERY expensive.

But I agree with you, my pick is SNES.

As for whoever said neither would make much of an investment - I never said it was I was expecting a return, other than the entertainment, and the coolness of giving my grandchildren the chance to experience the real thing someday (I don't have any yet).

The reason I'm asking about this - I'll be in Japan in June for a couple weeks and I'll definitely be buying an SNES (well, japanese Super Famicom). I'll also be buying some doo-dads for my Sega Saturn. And, I might also buy the "Famicom AV" which is the 2nd gen, updated version of the NES that, in Japan, had AV outputs instead of RF. But it's about $100. Buying both will cut into the game cart budget.

1st world problems, I guess.

SNES, Super Mario All-Stars, and Earthworm Jim. But, in all honesty, I'd take both the NES and the SNES, I just have more time with the SNES, due to my uncle having one, and we always played it when we went to his house. So I haven't had as much time with the NES, unfortunately.

I probably will. I lived there from '91 to '93 teaching English in jr. high schools, and have gone back a couple times since getting married in 2000 (my wife's japanese, so you might as well say it's part of the contract). My wife and daughter will be there for a full month this time, and will stay with the in-laws for the first two weeks. Once I'm there we'll be going to Nikko, Kamakura, and Tokyo/Yokohama. Here's the hotel in Tokyo we'll be staying in for a week. Can't wait.

Is the Super Famicom compatible with US games?

Grabbrass
04-28-2013, 23:07
Is the Super Famicom compatible with US games?

Well, yes and no. There are adapters that you can plug an American cart into and then plug the adapter into the Super Famicom. There's no difference between the two consoles under the skin, but the 'body' of the console and the cartridges makes them physically incompatible. But, in addition to the cartridge adapter, there's also a number of um ... devices out there that just happen to be shaped like a Super Famicom cartridge into which you insert an SD card with certain files on it and voila! ... about 99% of all the games, US and Japanese, are at your fingertips. I'm actually doing some research right now to come up with the list of the few games that cannot be played this way - those are the games I'll be shopping for in Japan. I'll be building a more legit collection later.

Edit: FWIW the same can be done with a US console. I just like the look of the japanese version a lot better, and YMMV but they tend to take better care of their stuff. I'll probably be able to find a nice Super Famicom with all the fixin's, in the box, for about $60.

Wow, that is VERY impressive. And I can definitely understand the emotional connection if you were playing on one at that age. The NES came out during my freshman year of college - it's a miracle I ended up graduating, but still it didn't make the impression on me that it would've on a 6 year old. I was really excited when the SNES came out because it was, really at the time, a huge leap forward. And over the last 10 years I've spent a LOT of time playing games on the GBA, which is like a pocket-sized SNES. I just really love any old-school cartridge-based game system.

Now, as for Intellivision - only played with one of those once. I remember the commercials with George Plimpton though.

Tough call. There are plenty of games I love on both consoles, but generally SNES games were more refined. Super Metroid beats out classic Metroid by far for example.
If you go SNES here are some must haves.

Megaman X (X2 and X3 are also good)
Chrono Trigger
Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past
Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo: Hyper Fighting (yes it's a long title and make sure you get that exact one, as it's the last revision)
Super Metroid
Super Mario All Stars
Megaman 7
Super Castlevania 4
Super Punch Out
Earthbound
Illusion of Gaia
Terranigma (If you can find it)
Mortal Kombat 2
T2 Arcade
Super R-Type
TMNT 4: Turtles in Time

If you go NES you're still in for some great classic gaming. I recommend getting the top loader as it's more reliable.

Games recommended:
Megaman 1-4 (5 and 6 are ok but not as great as the first 4)
Castlevania 1-3 (Each one is different, all 3 are great)
Zelda 1 and 2
Super Mario Bros 1-3
Operation Wolf
The Guardian Legend
Final Fantasy
Duck Tales
Chip N Dale's Rescue Rangers
Double Dragon 1-3
Robocop
Little Nemo the Dream Master
Tetris
Gradius
P.O.W.: Prisoner of War
Bad Dudes
Ninja Gaiden (prepare to swear)
TMNT2 and 3
Bucky O Hare
Dragon Warrioer 1-3

A friend of mine took the classic picture there: Her sitting on the throne of games. Very cool.

Edit: FWIW the same can be done with a US console. I just like the look of the japanese version a lot better, and YMMV but they tend to take better care of their stuff. I'll probably be able to find a nice Super Famicom with all the fixin's, in the box, for about $60.

You probably know already, but if you get one that's off-color like the one pictured, you can treat the yellowed plastic with a hydrogen peroxide solution to restore its color. (Details available on Google.)

Y'know, as much of a Japan-nut as I am, I actually prefer the US version... especially its color scheme and concave upper face buttons.

When my cousins came over, they brought their games with them. I don't remember what happened to the Super Famicom, but as I recall we ended up just cutting the blocking pieces out of my old SNES and they had fun with it. Emulators are quite good for me. I think the graphical improvements available that way are worth the loss of nostalgia, but sometimes when the newer kids in the family sit down I wish I could hand them an old console and stack of games.

Yeah, I'm aware of the trick with US consoles ... cut out the two tabs inside the cart slot, and japanese carts will fit. I have given it some thought as an alternative, even though I think it's butt ugly compared to the J console. But one thing for sure - I'll be buying 3-4 real Nintendo controllers at Super Potato because original Nintendo SNES controllers (US version) in good condition are getting hard to come by. Plus I just like the colored buttons.

Open the thing up (it's not hard) and remove the . . . uh . . . thing with the pins in it. The socket? Whatever. Remove it. Hose it down with plastic-safe contact cleaner and then use a toothbrush to get the grime out.

Unfortunately, the problem is not just the socket, but also the pins in the cartridges. A q-tip with contact cleaner will work there, too.

You can also buy a new socket. Either way you go, it's going to take maintenance. As well built as the systems were, they are still 30 year old electronics with exposed contacts.

#

Regarding the original question, I'd take NES hands down. Legend of Zelda remains my FAVORITE game of all time. However . . . let's acknowledge that there's a difference between FAVORITE and BEST. Best game of all time is Link to the Past on the SNES.

But that's really the only game I ever played on the SNES. So if I were stuck on an island I'd want something familiar. NES it is.

NES.

I remember seeing one for the first time when I was 7 years old at my neighbor's house. I was absolutely astonished that a person could control the character on the TV screen using a controller. I ran home and told my parents about it and we ended up getting one a few months later. 22 years later, I still play it from time to time. I do miss my SNES too though.

It's amazing that NES consoles still work after 25 years and an Xbox 360 is good for about 2 years at the most.

I don't know about that. I distinctly remember having to blow into the cartridge for 5 mins to get a game to play, only to have it crash halfway into it. Also, comparing the hardware in the NES and an Xbox 360/PS3 is like comparing a 10 year old flip phone to a Galaxy S4. Having said that, my 360 has never given me any trouble and it's older than 2 years.

If I had to pick NES vs SNES, I'd pick the SNES due to the reliability issue. However, nothing beats an Android phone/tablet with an NES/SNES/N64 emulator, paired with a Wii Mote or a PS3/Xbox 360 controller.

You sure that Japanese device will work here in the U.S.? Our TVs work on the NTSC standard, pretty sure Japan works on PAL. This defines the signal output to the TV.

So sure, if you have a made-for-U.S. system and want to play a Japanese cartridge... that's doable, that part doesn't change. It's the output to the TV I"d worry about.


EDIT. Nevermind. While almost all the countries AROUND Japan use PAL, Japan uses a slightly modified version of NTSC.

Gotcha.

Prior to '95 or so, I don't even think I was aware that there were different TV signal standards. I worked for a company that did on demand video in hotels. We licensed the technology from the company that did it here in the states (On Command at the time)... but the agreement was that we couldn't compete against them so we targeted the luxury hotels of the Pacific Rim. So our system had to be able to support PAL, NTSC, etc. We built set-top boxes which were compatible with each specific market.

I developed the firmware contained in the setup boxes. I learned alot about that stuff. Pretty cool company. You'd be surprised at how much of that market is porn. We had employees who literally were supposed to watch each video that went out to the hotels (we also managed shipping new movies to each installed hotel), whether it was a summer blockbuster or some cheap porn. Several of these were girls.... it was funny to talk to them about it.

Anyway, sorry for the hijack... but the subject caused me to reminisce a bit.

Nintendoage.com would be a good place to join if your looking for any more info. There's lots of pictures and instructions on how to repair and modify anything Nintendo. Also not a bad place to find a cheap nes or SNES. Prices are usually better than eBay.

The system that won't work without a game genie definitely needs a new connector. They are less than 10$ and take 15 minutes with a Phillips screwdriver to replace. The connector is pretty much the only thing that goes wrong on them.

I used to have one. Need to pick one up again.

Another good fighting game for SNES is Ranma 1/2.

If you see it pick it up.

SNES, though the NES is still incredible.

Chrono Trigger
Final Fantasy 2/4
Final Fantasy 3/6
Super Mario World
Contra III: The Alien Wars
Demon's Crest
Ultima The Black Gate
Donkey Kong Country
Earthbound
Illusion of Gaia
Super Castlevania IV
Super Metroid

That's just scratching the surface of amazing games you'll find on the SNES.

SNES - totally.

I've got a nice SNES emulator on my tablet, and have been replaying Final Fantasy 3 and Metroid when I go out of town. Real fun when you pair the device with a PS3 controller.

I've got everything emulated on my main computer, but I have been meaning to buy a good USB SNES controller for a long time. Maybe I'll bite the bullet this year.

Amazon has some cheap controllers on their site. I picked up a Xbox wireless adapter to use my wireless controllers ony pc
