It’s been a hot minute since we’ve done a “Would You Rather” post, so we decided to do another dedicated to one of our first video game consoles, the SNES. Getting right into it, Rachel, would you rather have only played three random SNES games, getting only a taste of the system, or none at all?
I’d rather play three random games. That way I can have the experience of playing the console. If the games are good, I’d be happy to have the opportunity to play them. If they weren’t good games, then I wouldn’t have to worry about missing out on the console at all. Would you rather have only SNES games to play for the rest of your life or have Nintendo’s next console be a remake of the SNES with only remakes of the SNES games on it? And no, I don’t mean the SNES Classic. I mean an actual updated SNES console with all the games with updated graphics and such but nothing else.
I think I’d want Nintendo’s next console to be a remastered SNES. The Classic was great, but there were so many games missing and to see updated ones would be interesting. Rachel, which SNES game would you rather erase from history, Super Mario Kart or The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past?
Super Mario Kart! I’m terrible at that game. Both of those games are good, but I’d take Zelda over a Mario Kart game that I absolutely cannot play. I’m going to throw a similar question at you. Would you rather erase Donkey Kong Country or TMNT: Turtles in Time?
Ah, those are difficult. I wonder if, by erasing the likes of Super Mario Kart and Donkey Kong Country, the sequels and successors would also be wiped from gaming history? Either way, I think I would erase Donkey Kong Country. I have too many fond memories of TMNT: Turtles in Time. Would you rather all of the SNES games you play be single-player only or be local co-op only?
I would rather local co-op. I don’t think I’d be able to play SNES games on my own. I’m too bad at them. Final question: Would you rather have the SNES console never exist or replace another console such as the Wii or Wii U?
Why kind of question is that? Why give me such a difficult one? Honestly, I need the SNES to exist since it was one of my first consoles and has some of my favorite games. I suppose it could replace either the Wii or the Wii U… I enjoyed those consoles as well, but I cannot deny that I played the SNES much more than either of those consoles.
