For a system known for its single player experience, there are still a ton of good co-op games for SNES. If you had to pick, what would you say is the best co-op game for Super Nintendo? There were amazing two player racing games, brawlers, RPGs, and more that were a blast to play with a friend (or little brother who always had to be player two). Vote up your favorite two player SNES games that you love playing with friends, and add any games to the list you think we missed!

Did you know Kirby Super Star was the first multiplayer Kirby game? The coolest part was that player two could be a multitude of characters, depending on which enemy Kirby swallowed and then transformed into his helper. Super Mario Kart also launched on SNES, which paved the way for tons of future racing games, both in and outside of the Mario Kart franchise.
