Best retro gaming buys: SNES games under $100

GameSkinny's picks for best SNES games under $100.

Last week’s post gave you the hardware. Today’s post will give you the must-have games for your Super Nintendo. The best SNES games don’t come cheap, but these tried and true titles are worth it. Part two of this series includes games that can be bought for under $100.

Part One: SNES games under $50.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island - $33.99 and up (used)

You play as one of a variety of Yoshis, who, in some terrible twist of fate are now responsible for keeping baby Mario from being kidnapped whilst saving baby Luigi from baby Bowser and Kamek. I distinctly remember the final battle with Bowser being far more metal than it really is.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - $38.59 and up (used)

Again, snag a used copy for less than $40. Hyrule will thank you. Your fact of the day: This game is known as The Legend of Zelda: Triforce of the Gods in Japan.

Super Metroid

Super Metroid - $56.97 and up (used)

The heyday of Samus Aran.

Final Fantasy III

Final Fantasy III - $49.02 and up (used)

One of the most iconic Final Fantasies. This title was not released outside Japan until a 2006 Nintendo DS remake.

Secret of Mana

Secret of Mana - $61.89 and up (used)

Another incredible SNES game, notable for using real-time battle instead of turn-based like many of its contemporaries. Not many were made, so it is harder to get than some other titles.

Stay tuned for Part 3: Best SNES games of all time!
