List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Super Nintendo Entertainment System at some point.

If you owned a Super Nintendo at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few adventure games in your collection. There's something about exploring new places, finding treasure and fighting enemies that makes adventure games so addicting.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling adventure games that were released for Super Nintendo. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well.
