    Their would be some pretty heated debates of the team would be a bit of a bummer too when you could not convince a publisher to allow their game on their. The classic consoles is such a cool idea and has appealed to people who have dropped out of gaming surely Sony has to be looking to get something together with the possible library they could put together.

    I would have picked Conker over Perfect Dark had I thought it was a thing Nintendo would do. Yeah, it was a glorious partnership between Nintendo and Rare in the SNES->N64 era. None of those Rare games are out of place on a best-of list for the N64.

    Twisted Metal, Mega Man Legends, Grand Theft Auto II, Tenchu...

    ...and Wipeout was the game that escaped me. That would have to be a lock for sure and there's more that would easily make that list.

    As somebody who grew up with the N64, it's exciting to go back and look at all these old Sony and Sega games. Given the breakthrough with Saturn emulation, I hope it's only a matter of time before we see some of their games re-released. Panzer Dragoon 3 is meant to be one of the greatest RPGs of all-time and nobody can play it because it's hideously expensive.

    Problem is Rare is owned(?) by Microsoft now, and games like Banjo and (I'm pretty sure) perfect dark are on the Xbox marketplace so chances of Nintendo being able to re-release those are slim to none

    Cant leave out WCW vs NWO revenge on that 64 list.

    On the basis that it came with or could connect 4 controllers

    Yeah, which is why I didn't include them in my list.

    However, if Nintendo was going to make it their mission to get Microsoft/Rare/Eon Productions (the license holders for Bond) on board then those would be the priority.

    Would love to get any of the AKI games on board, but the licensing and royalties would be a nightmare.

    DKC 2
    Chronotrigger
    Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
    Earthworm Jim
    Killer Instinct
    Super Bomberman
    Lufia 2
    Pilotwings
    Super Mario All Stars

    edit:

    This is a cracking list of games

    Yeah I played Uniracers never really got the hang of it lol.

    Apparently it will never be re-released because Pixar sued the developers!

    Battletoads is a Rare IP, so Microsoft would most likely never let it happen.

    Fight them 1v1 at the aquarium for it

    Fwiw MS has allowed Rare to release games on Nintendo portables, thought the last were in 2007 and 2008 on the DS

    Oddworld Abe's Oddysee would be a definite lock. It's one of those games that time has forgotten but was absolutely huge at the time and has a real cult following behind it. I never really got into it, but my brother swears by it.

    I'm glad that Nintendo didn't pull any shenanigans with the SNES Classic. I would have been spitting chips if they made the PAL region different and didn't include NTSC games like Earthbound, Final Fantasy 3 and Super Mario RPG in the mix. Interestingly, if Nintendo went with the 20 highest selling games it would look like...

    Chrono Trigger
    Disney's Aladdin

    Donkey Kong Country
    Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
    Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble

    Final Fantasy III
    Final Fight
    F-Zero
    Killer Instinct
    Kirby Super Star
    Mortal Kombat II
    Secret of Mana
    SimCity
    Star Fox
    Super Mario Kart
    Super Mario RPG
    Super Mario World
    Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
    Super Street Fighter II
    The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

    With Final Fantasy II (sold around the same amount of copies as Kirby), Super Metroid, The Lion King, NBA Jam, Mortal Kombat 3, The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse, Mega Man X, Pilotwings, Derby Stallion '96, Super Ghost and Ghouls and Final Fight II just missing the cut.

    Of course that list doesn't include alternative versions (Street Fighter II), compiltions (All-Stars), Japanese exclusives or gimmick games (Mario Paint and Super Scope 6) in the mix.

    I've made my peace with my purchase, but I'd love it if the success of the SNES Classic served as an impetus for Nintendo to release a bunch of SNES classics to the West. Games like Clocktower, Mystical Ninja II-IV, Romance Saga, Fire Emblem, Live A Live, Metal Max, Seiken Densetsu 3, Treasure Hunter G etc. would be cool incentives for collectors.

    Got one preordered I never had a SNES so many of these games will be new for me. We were lucky enough to get a NES in Malaysia last year they were really easy to get hold of there.

    Really hoping for a 64 next year, a very underrated game on that system was beetle racing adventure.

    We never got beetle racing in aus.

    Was re-packaged as HSV racing adventure, and had Commodores instead of beetles

    I doubt the snes mini will be big in India meaning the vast majority of potential customers wouldn't care.
