Best SNES Games NHL '94

We start off this list of the best SNES games with a fantastic option for a sports game. The invention of the one timer made for a fantastic addition, something never seen before in a hockey game.

This added an entire new element of fun and strategy into the mix. NHL ’94 is so popular that there are still updated roster packs putting the new NHL players into the game today.

How’s that for a hockey game that was made in 1993?

A platformer that was a killer app for Nintendo’s shiny new 16 bit console, the SNES.
