List Rules Only games released for the North America SNES console. So Super Famicom-only games.

List of the best games ever released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The 16-bit Super Nintendo (or SNES) video game console was available beginning in 1990 in Japan (where it was known as the Super Famicom) and the following year in North America, and was not discontinued until 2003 and 1999, respectively. During the 16-bit era (which primarily featured SNES competition from the Sega Genesis console), Super Nintendo was the world's best-selling video game system. Over 39 million SNES units were sold around the world (still shy of the incredible 61.91 million original Nintendo systems sold.) Even into the 32-bit era, Super Nintendo systems remained commonplace in homes around the world.

794 total games were officially released for the Super Nintendo system. The first games available for the new system were "Super Mario World," "F-Zero," "Pilotwings," "SimCity" and "Gradius III." "Super Mario World" - which was often bundled and sold with the system in its early days - remained the best-selling SNES game of all time, with over 20 million units sold. Many Super Nintendo titles have remained popular through the use of emulators, which can currently recreate the SNES experience on computers.
