Hello all, I have a question on which I need some advice from others as right now I am rather fifty-fifty on this. Since a couple of days I have been considering getting myself a SNES mini as back in the day I was a big SNES fan, though it may also be my desire to buy something that is at play here. Back during the 90s I had a Sega Megadrive/Genesis and while I enjoyed games such as the Sonic series and Gunstar Heroes on it (I really should have bought Phantasy Star IV because when I played it a couple of years ago I enjoyed it a lot) I always had a fascination with the SNES as it had quite some great looking exclusives such as Turtles in Time, Alien 3 (much better than the Sega Megadrive version), platformers like Twinbee adventures, Cybernator, and The Lost Vikings. I did not know about a lot of the JRPGs at the time, I discovered Chrono Trigger much later. Occasionally I got to rent one but it would be several years, a couple of years before the end of the SNES age that I got one of my own. Sadly I traded it and my Sega Megadrive for a Nintendo 64. I was so disappointed with it I became a complete PC gamer afterwards. When Nintendo announced the NES mini I did not care much for it as I was never raised on it (I had a Sega Master System and even then I realized I should have picked the Megadrive) and it felt like Nintendo was once again playing on the nostalgia of their better years like they have been doing for ages now. But the SNES mini is a different case, especially since I have figured out how one can mod it to play additional games. I do occasionally play SNES games through an emulator, old favorites like Zombies ate my neighbors and Big Sky Trooper; and games that I missed during that time because they were available for rent or did not have a European version, or even an English version at all. It is criminal how many JRPGs or games with unique gameplay were left in Japan while a lot of crappy and average games did get a port. But playing on an emulator is rather different than playing on a console even if it is not the original hardware. I would love to buy all my favorites physical again, especially in a very good or almost mint/new state but a lot of these games are just hideously expensive now. What makes me reluctant is that I do not want to drown myself in nostalgia again as I tend to think to much of how the past was so much better than the current state of my life including gaming. A SNES min would also not be cheap for me as I am still unemployed at this time (I do have some reserve but if I spend it on everything I like that would not last long) Are there people here who have a SNES mini or are in the same situation as I am? What would you advice me? A bit disappointing that it can't also play Gameboy Advance games as I would love to add Metroid Fusion and Metroid Zero Mission to it.
