The Super Nintendo is oft-regarded as one of the pinnacles of Nintendo's legendary roster of games and consoles. Released in North America in 1991, the system set a new standard for graphics, game play, and fun that are still being revered to this day. Games like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the PastStreet Fighter, and Donkey Kong Country remain classics among video game enthusiasts, each having helped to define the conventions of their respective genres.
