I think you can ask a mod/admin to do that for you. I'm sure they will be able to help you out. Specially since you are still a new member (post wise) and thus there won't be any confusion when you change your name. Plus everyone probably only notices your avatar....I know I do :oops: . Heck I'm sure in most people's head I'm the Greek S&K logo guy :lol:


Yeah, you can ask an admin. There's no harm in asking. The worst that can happen is they say no. Don't get your hopes up, user name changes are only done on special occasions. Otherwise, every one would be asking for name changes and it would be pandemonium! However, you don't have a bad case. You made an account here back before you started doing SNES reviews. It's understandable if you want your user name here to match for notoriety.

Mods have denied the two times i've ask. I made mine in a rush to start posting and regret it because while it applies to retro gaming it also makes me sound like a wanna be rap star. :lol:

Also just wanted to say I really enjoyed your Top Gear video so I subscribed and commented. :)

NICE :D . Also, I still keep hearing people call Chrono Trigger a hidden gem on the SNES so take from that what you will.

Troddlers reminds me a lot of Solomon's Key. At least the blocks aspect of it. And of course lemmings.

But I have to disagree with you, that single music piece that was playing in the review was horrible :lol: . I hope that's not the single track in the game

:lol: C'mon, I really like the music in that game. Oh well. No that's not the only track, there's 7 or 8 other ones.

Seeing quite a few "Just got a SNES, what games should I get?" posts at places like Reddit and GameFAQs, so I made this video:

Hey man, I don't agree with all of it, but it's a solid list of games. Here's what I think you are spot on about:

Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Mega Man X
Super Castlevania IV
Street Fighter II Turbo
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time
Contra III: The Alien Wars
Star Fox
Gradius III
Super Mario Kart
Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball
NBA Jam Tournament Edition
Tecmo Super Bowl
NHL series
FIFA series
Tetris Attack
Tetris & Dr. Mario
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Super Metroid
Final Fantasy III (VI)
Chrono Trigger

So yeah, most of what you proposed. But I have a couple of thoughts on the others.

First, Donkey Kong Country 2...this one is up in the air for me. While I feel DKC2 is superior, I'm still hesitant to declare it over its predecessor. I'm on the fence as a result, though I am happy to see one of the series here.

Second, Mega Man X yes, but I don't consider Mega Man X2 to be as essential. I'd happily recommend it to fellow collectors, but I don't think it's one I "must have" if I'm limited by size and budget constraints. I feel the same for UN Squadron, Secret of Mana, and Super Mario RPG. Instead, I'd argue that Mortal Kombat 2, Killer Instinct, and F-Zero are more essential for a base collection to show off the console's strengths.
