And don't say Genesis. .... Even if Genesis was your fave back in the day vs. SNES, that's not the comparison I'm looking for. Just bouncing this NES vs. SNES thing out there cuz I'm considering an investment in one or the other - so, if you were stranded on an island that just happened to have electricity and a functional CRT television, would you rather have, an NES or an SNES to play on, and why? (assuming you could have any games for the system you wanted) Also don't get into emulation - the whole point of my interest is playing on the actual hardware, as God and Shigeru Miyamoto intended. I'll reply sometime later with my own vote.
