The other day I got a Super NES for free. I was out visiting my local thrift store looking for a TV stand, when I saw one of the employees with a box labeled "Nintendo". I asked him if I could check out whats in the box and it was an old Super NES. He said that it was broke but then he said I can have it. When I got home, I hooked it up and it was it was working just fine and at that moment, a flood gate of memories opened.
I remember getting my first Super NES back in 1995 as a Christmas present. I remember the hours I spent playing Street Fighter 2 trying to beat M. Bison, which I did using Chun-li. My favorite Super NES game was between Yoshi's Island and Mega Man X3. In 1997, something horrible happened, my Super NES died due to a power shortage. three months later, I got a new Super NES but it was the second version of it which was smaller and cool looking. I ended up giving away that Super NES to a younger cousin of mine at was less fortunate than me and my mom notice that kind act of mine and gave me a Playstation.
I ended up trading in the Super NES for Lunar: Dragon Song at my local video game store, since Gamestop does not take anything game and systems that is older than the sixth video game generation. I know it's a classic video game system but I really don't need one because I already have a Wii and can just download Super NES games from the virtual console.
So, what are your most happy(or bad) Super NES memories or did you get a Genesis instead?
