10 Games That Aren't On The SNES Classic Edition, But Should Be

- Page 1

Now that Nintendo's announced the SNES Classic Edition, we're all excited to experience our old favorites all over again.

Except not all of our favorites made it onto the system's 21 game list! While it's impossible to get everything on there, we're genuinely surprised and disappointed these 10 didn't make the cut.

1) Chrono Trigger


Considered by many to be the best RPG of all time, Chrono Trigger is a testament to just how great the partnership between Squaresoft and Nintendo was back in the 90s.


While the SNES Classic does come with Super Mario RPG, Secret of Mana and Final Fantasy III, it's surprising that they chose not to include this beloved time-traveling adventure as well.


2) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time


An arcade mainstay that got even better when brought to the Super Nintendo, Turtles in Time is the ultimate 2-player beat 'em up action.


You get to choose your favorite turtle (which is obviously Michelangelo) and fight your way through history on your way to defeating Shredder! Konami, the game's developer, already has Contra 3: The Alien Wars available on the SNES Classic, so why this one didn't make it on is a mystery.


3) Actraiser


An obscure game that not many people remember, Actraiser had you taking on the role of God as you help your people rebuild a world devastated by evil.


Whether it's the strategy sections where you use your angel helper to guide the humans and seal away monsters, or the action levels where you possess a statue and take your righteous wrath out on monsters personally, the game was a unique game that everyone should get to experience.


4) Tetris Attack!


This excellent puzzle game combined the world of Yoshi's Island with genuinely addictive block-swapping challenges, and the result is a game that holds up amazingly well even today.


The worst part is that Japan is actually getting it! That's right, the game's original version, Panel de Pon, is going to be included in Japan's Super Famicom Mini. So what gives, Nintendo?!


5) Mortal Kombat II


It's great that the SNES Classic has Super Street Fighter II, but it'd be even better if they represented the other massive fighting game franchise of the 90s; Mortal Kombat.


While the SNES version of the original was heavily censored (the blood was made into sweat), Mortal Kombat II presented the series in all its bloody glory. We'd love another excuse to land some Fatalities on our friends.

87-Year-Old Grandma Uses Microsoft Paint To Create Beautiful Masterpieces

Using the computer as a kid was kind of a privilege that you didn't get everyday. Kids now have little computers in their pockets from a young age, so probably a lot of the novelty has worn off. Even when we weren't allowed to use the internet, there was one program that would entertain us for hours, and that was Microsoft Paint.  The simple software that came preinstalled on every computer was basically everyone's favorite thing. The only thing we would use more than Paint was probably Solitaire. Between Paint and Solitaire we could have spent hours on the


'The Oregon Trail' Is Back And More Portable Than Ever, And We Can't Wait To Die Of Dysentery

Growing up, we didn't really have the same advanced video game as kids today have. We had to use our imaginations. Sure, looking back it was a little bit less than impressive, but honestly, we had more fun playing those simple games than almost any of these extremely complicated ones. Oregon Trail is perhaps one of the most notorious and iconic games that we played during computer class. It seemed to be loaded up onto every school computer, so that we could learn all about traveling on the frontier, including the struggles that came with it. Sure, about 90% of


There's Going To Be A 'Ghostbusters' Version Of Pokemon Go And We Know Who We're Gonna Call

Watching Ghostbusters as a kid basically meant that we all believed in ghosts to some extent. Sure, we knew Slimer wasn't going to come around the corner because Spengler had him under control, but also, what if he did? We weren't about to get caught off guard, so we spent all our free time rewatching the movie, catching up on the cartoon, and playing with every Ghostbusters-themed toy we could find to make sure our ghost catching skills were up to snuff. Personally, I know that I had countless dreams where I would be chasing the ghosts around my neighborhood

'Backdraft' Is Getting A Sequel 27 Years After The Original, With Only One Of The Original Stars

Few movies have given us as exciting of a look at the life of a firefighter as Backdraft. The Chicago-based thriller followed the fire department as they take on some big fires and some big drama.The cast was really impressive, and included big names like Robert De Niro, Kurt Russell, Billy Baldwin, and Donald Sutherland. With such an impressive cast, you'd expect a guaranteed hit, but it received mixed reviews. However, despite the mixed reviews, the movie made a good chunk of change at the box office and now they are trying to make it happen again. Universal PicturesThat's
