Year released: 1990

Continuing in the vein of its predecessor the NES, the first must have for the SNES was also a Mario game, and the title that introduced the world to lovable dinosaur sidekick Yoshi.

Introducing a bevy of new gameplay features, Super Mario World eventually sold over 20 million copies worldwide, and debates still rage as to whether this or its NES predecessor Super Mario Bros. 3 is the best 2D entry (or Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, if you're trying to be trendy).
