My first experience with the Super Nintendo.

Since it was The Super Nintendo’s 23rd birthday this past weekend, here’s a little flashback at my first experience with the SNES:
I had originally bought the Sega Genesis instead at first because, it was believed that Street Fighter 2 was going to be on it. And that was a big factor for which 16-bit system I was going to buy. I bought the Sega system along with the game: Pit Fighter to fill my fighting game need in the meantime.

Then, later on, I found out at the magazine rack (before the internet of course), inside an issue of GamePro, that Nintendo had made an exclusive deal with Capcom to have Street Fighter 2 only on SNES.

I was really upset about that. Lol. So, since strict return policies didn’t exist then, I able to return the Sega Genesis a couple of months later for a refund. (I had asked a friend from school to go with me to return it for me. She was most definitely not thrilled.) Either way, they took it back.
When the SNES was finally released, I purchased it with a copy of Contra: Alien Wars, Super Mario World and the final fight clone: Rival Turf by Jaleco. My jaw dropped at the sound and mode 7 effects. A few years later, I got the Sega Genesis anyways and had both and all was well with the universe.

What was your first experiences with the SNES and fondest memories?
