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.

<![CDATA[The Best Video Games of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-games-of-all-time
Video games are more popular than ever. Since the early '80 when gaming systems like Atari, Nintendo and Sega first took arcade favorite and made them available to a wider audience, video games have become a part of the pop culture lexicon. Many of the best video games are action and adventure games, usually with an ultimate goal to reach in the end. That could mean rescuing a princess, like in games like the Super Mario franchise and Legend of Zelda, or it could mean battling it out with iconic villains like in Goldeneye. Sometime whooping some butt is fun and if that's your favorite type of video game, then you would be partial to the Grand Theft Auto franchise, Contra and Mortal Kombat as the best video games.

The aughts produced some of the best video games of all time. Halo, Assassin's Creed and The Sims have remained popular ten year after their respective releases. People love playing these games and they've taken their place as classics within the gaming community.

<![CDATA[The Best Game Systems of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-game-systems-of-all-time
There have been numerous video game systems throughout the years, but which one is the best? Starting in the 70's the daddy of all home video game consoles, the Atari, was released. It introduced the world to games that were able to be played on your home television. With the rise of the arcade, people were jumping at the chance to take the video games home with them, and thus the popularity of the video game home system was born.

There have been many different companies that have tried to release video game systems throughout the years. Companies like Atari, Sega, Nintendo, Coleco, Microsoft, and many more. Each of these companies have released a number of different consoles as the years and technology have progressed. Nintendo has had the NES, Super NES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube and Wii. (This is not even including the portable systems like Gameboy, DS and 3DS.) Sony has their Playstation 1, 2 and PS3, along with their Vita and PSP. Sega had the Mastersystem, Genesis, Saturn and Dreamcast. Microsoft had the Xbox and Xbox 360.

After the mid-90's the playing field drastically changed and most other companies fell away since they couldn't keep up with the advancing technology. The big 3, Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft came out the clear winners. This is a list of the best video game console systems of all time so feel free to vote for your favorite and add any that aren't here.

<![CDATA[The Best Board Games of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-board-games-of-all-time
The best board games ever made, ranked by aficionados and casual players. (For a full list check out Ranker's List of All Board Games.)What are the greatest board games ever? The classic games that have entertained families of players for decades? Or innovative new table-top role playing games pushing the boundaries between fiction and reality? This list attempts to determine, once and for all, which are the greatest and most fun board games of all time.

A board game here is defined as any game in which pieces are placed on or moved around a flat surface, such as a board. This would include classic centuries-old board games such as Go, Chess and Checkers, along with more modern games like Settlers of Catan, or even some role-playing games involving game pieces or miniatures. What are the best board games ever? What's the best board game for two people? What's the best board game for groups?

Some games still utilize game pieces but are built more around live interaction or conversation than traditional "turn-based" board games. These games - such as Scattergories or Taboo - may not meet the strict definition of board game, but nonetheless resemble board game-style play and entertainment enough to warrant inclusion.

This list was determined by allowing users to make lists of suggestions for the greatest board games ever, and then holding an open vote on which games were actually the best of all time. Whether you are a hard core board game geek, or just a casual player, your votes count here. If you don't see your favorite board games on the list, add your own list and suggest them. And don't forget to vote on the best games on the list already to ensure they rise to the top! If your mind needs some board game refreshment check out the complete list of board games.

<![CDATA[The Most Compelling Video Game Storylines]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-most-compelling-video-game-storylines
Video game narratives range from the extremely simplistic to the staggeringly complex. While early games - and many contemporary ones focused on gameplay - treat the plot as a loose outline filled in by action or puzzles, some games have tried to push the boundaries and tell emotionally gripping, cinematic stories with elements of interactive control and player choices that forward the storyline. The advent of so-called "sandbox" games, which give players more freedom in choosing how to explore the environment, which missions to embark upon and what order to progress in has also served to make games more character-driven and involving. ("Fallout 3," for example, builds up a karmic profile of the player based on decisions in how to advance through missions.)

This list collects the games with the most entertaining and involving storylines. Vote for your favorite games on the list, and build your own version to add more suggestions that aren't already ranked!
