They were the only really good fighting games. Sorry, Killer Instinct and Eternal Champions.

yeah SNES was definitely the console for wimpy good guys.


When you hang out with a friend who has an SNES: "Here, let me show you this cool trick, if you go into the warp zone you can skip some of the harder levels."

When you hang out with a friend who has a Genesis: "Here, let me show you this cool trick, if we enter this cheat code we can rip this guy's still-beating heart out."

Contra and Contra 2 for SNES were fucking awesome. Two player mode was so much fun too. I remember spending one summer just playing the shit out of that with my brother and my neighbor friend. I need to bust that out again.

One of Contra's greatest strengths was the immediate intensity: The music rolls, you're dropped into the jungle, and the enemies start coming right at you. It started at 10, and never let up. I wish that there were more games today that could effectively pull this off.

And the gameplay was simple to master, and still totally challenging. The weapons upgrades and bonuses and stuff were fun and cool. It was just a great arcade style game. One of my favorites ever.

Yeah, I'd even say it was the best one. MK1 was too flat, and MK3 got too out-there for its own good (Cyrax, combos, etc). MK2 has the perfect mix of cool colors, additional fatalities, but not so complicated that you couldn't just pick it up and start playing.

I just played a game of NBA Live 96. I won 93-87. Rockets over Jazz. Clyde Drexler had 37.

Maybe it wasn't on the console versions? I don't know.
