The SNES, maybe the most beloved console of all time. Despite it's rival produced by Sega (Which was also a legendary console), the SNES was boosted above legendary status by classic games such as FF3, Chrono Trigger, the Donkey Kong Trilogy, F-Zero, the Mario titles it carried, and of course, The Legend of Zelda-Link's Awakening.

While it was a hot item in it's time, it has now been spread around the internet for free in the form of emulators, and the games have been converted into roms. This adds to the legacy the SNES left behind of being the most playable and memory-laden projects undertaken by a gaming company.
Despite all the other legendary consoles (And those that are to come in the future), the SNES will always have it's own place in the world of gaming.

The Super NES was the last great of the greats. While there were other respectable consoles (Sega Master System, etc.) the SNES stands head-and-shoulders above them all. Utilizing the first real Interconsole Connectivity (a system of ideas that is still in employment today) the SNES beat down other companies with its ability to play Gameboy games with its Game-Genie-like Super Gameboy adapter.

Following up from their heritage of "Programmable Games" (excitebike, etc.), The system had Mario Paint, where hours could fall into nonexistance as you try to draw with the only mouse for a console available at the time, and for years to come.

There is so much amazingness packed into this gray-and-purple rectangle (With its own Eject button!)that its hard to see why gaming went and started to depend on graphical capabilities, but there is an explanation in the SNES itself.

Super Nintendo sowed the seeds of its own demise when Nintendo released StarFox with the SuperFX chip built into the cartridge, it was one of the first fully Three-Dimensional console titles, if not The First.

SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System for the noobs), the high king over all gaming systems, made legendary by such games as Super Metroid, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, the mario titles it carried over including the one with yoshi and the all star pack, FFX, the Donkey Kong games, and the badass Megaman series, especially Megaman X 3. Only the Sega Genesis could ever rival it, and that only due to the Sonic Series. As Nintendo proceeds to develop their halfass game cube platform, the SNES remains the greatest of all consoles ever made.
The Last Great Console owns the hell out of the atari, the nintendo, the N64, the Game Cube, the Playstation, the PS2, the Sega Genesis, the Dreamcast, and especially the Xbox.

I was playing Super Mario 3 and Duck hunt the other day and wondered why these aren't world wide treasure in a museum.
