Nope - earlier...

Awesome...then that one. I've always loved Super Nintendo a lot though. That was a good thing that came out of the 90's! I got a working Super Nintendo from a yard sale and have sat there with my X Box 360 turned off trying to kill Bowser in Super Mario Brothers.

I loved that game too and I used to go to my friend's house to play it because I didn't have it. I'd get frustrated when I couldn't jump on those alligator heads correctly and I'd fall in as soon as they opened their mouths. I have this game as a plug and play. It's fun!
