++ Zelda 2 (adventure of link) was a horrid game
LttP only existed on the SNES (Super Famicon).
Also, my personal favorites of that era? god that's a hard pick, in no particular order games I spent insane amounts of time playing are:
Mario Paint (for different reasons it was highly addictive
Donkey Kong Country
Most of the NHL and Madden iterations throughout
Super Mario World
I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones that come to mind currently. I definately played some other titles I enjoyed, but those are the best (other titles that were amusing but not so well done include Clay Fighter)
