Top Five: RPGs on the SNES

        Hello and Welcome to this episode of RPGGamer Top 5s, and as part of our series on the top RPG's on each system, today we're going to be doing the top five RPG's on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
        Often called the Super Nintendo, Super NES, the SNES or Snes, it was released in 1990 by the Nintendo Corporation of Japan, a sequel to it's incredibly popular NES, but it didn't manage to eclipse it's ancestor, selling only 49 million consoles compared to the 61 million of the NES.
        It was a 16 bit console running at 3.58 Megahertz, leaning heavily on it's custom chips to provide a 256 colour display and 8 voice audio. On release the showstopping effect was it's mode 7 graphics which allowed it to move a background around in a semi 3d effect, which was utilised in F-Zero, and launched the Mario Cart series of games.
        Although a japanese console, the SNES wasn't ovewhelmed with RPG's, with action games far more common, with Platformers, Shoot em ups and Beat em ups being those best remembered games on the platform.
        At the time, RPG's weren't hugely popular in the UK where I'm based, and the few I managed to get my hands on aren't perhaps the very best that were released. But amongst the swarm of Super Mario's, Street Fighters and Donkey Kongs, these were the RPG's I liked best on the SNES.
