SNES had the best collection of games....ever....
I never played Earthbound, but heard many many good things...too bad I probably never will at this point...Chrono Trigger was the best RPG ever of that age in my humble opinion.
snes: my fav games -
donkey kong country
final fantasy III
super mario world
zelda a link to the past
prince of persia

I wish we'd have had web polls back in the 90s. We could have settled this a long time ago.
+1 SNES, and fuck Blast Processing
Super Nintendo, by far. Way more games worth buying, better graphics, better franchises. I had both, but this is no contest.

Earthbound really needs to be on the fucking GBA. I'm so glad they put the Final Fantasies on the GBA, but still need to get V. VI owns my soul. But I really want Chrono Trigger too. What the fuck...do they not want to make easy money?

I'll have to say SNES because of Super Mario World, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Mario Kart, Mega Man X and Super Metroid. Also, the controllers were much better.
i shoot all the shows you want to go to
Nintendo always made more fun games.
I finally went and got the Japanese version of the next Earthbound game (Mother 3) for GBA, so I can play it in my DS. Now I just need to learn Japanese! Well, I found out it's also not only in Japanese, but in Osaka-bin dialect or something.
I guess the SNES will always be special to me, because at the time I was staying home with my daughter, and we had a lot of family time playing the games. I have not had the time to play the other game systems.

I had a Genesis. I never owned a Nintendo system until the Gamecube, actually.
Also I've always gotten the feeling that SNES is generally the "safe" pick for casual gamers to say they loved when they were a kid, even if they only remember playing like, one game on it. Not saying anyone in this thread (I didn't even read the thread), just that in my experience IRL most people who just LOVE Nintendo probably couldn't name 10 NES or SNES games combined (not saying I can, like I said earlier, I didn't have either).
Having had both Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo, there's no way I could vote on this. It would be like comparing playstation to N64. There will be people who like both systems, but they're both great for their own reasons. SNES was solid for its cartoonish character-driven games, and Genesis was solid for being open to grittier titles that Nintendo just wouldn't publish. Genesis and SNES both shared great titles like Mortal Kombat 2+, but let's face it... but it seems to me that Nintendo only released MK games as to keep up with game sales. I could be wrong =P
