      No, its not just you. Switch has a slightly above average input delay baked in natively and the subpar emulation adds another layer to this. This becomes exponential depending on your input device and what kind of monitor you are playing on. Ironically the a nintendo device is the absolutely worst device to play nintendo games on.

      If I remember correctly its missing absolute classics like Mega Man X1, Castlevania 4, TMNT, etc. Really only has SOME decent first party titles and the rest is overrated JRPGs.

      Play the stuff on the PC in some emulator that accepts that "run ahead" function. You get smaller input lags than the original hardware (the SNES was a bit crappy and has a considerable input lag, nothing comparable to the N64 which even on CRTs will give you about 85ms in the best of situations, yet it is noticeable).
      After playing romhacks of super mario world on retroarch with "0" frames of input lag on an extremely fast response monitor, I simply can't play things like Mario Maker 2 on Switch, the input lag even playing in handheld mode, on the default device screen, is bizarre. Mario World on Nintendo's service is even worse.

        Lol what? Square has the PS5 version of FF7 remake(with the dlc) on PS Plus, along with multiple other final fantasy and dragon quest games. GamePass has Final Fantasy every mainlinegame from 7 to the 13 trilogy.
        I imagine the problem here is that Nintendo is too fucking cheap to pay for the license. Which explains the absolutely shit tier support for their service besides the first party games.

    No the Switch online service just gets a few good first-party Nintendo games and then the rest it the absolute dregs of the SNES library. No third-party dev with any decent games is going to put them on this service because they're more valuable being held back and resold as a stand-alone purchases. Just look up a list of the best SNES games and pirate them if you're interested in seeing the best of what the console has.

    First problem is that the SNES (and the NES) controllers were EXTREMELY precise in ways that modern consoles aren't. The games used that precision. But the Switch can't replicate it.
    Second problem is that a lot of the "SNES Classics" are worse than their NES counterparts. I know Ganker doesn't want to admit it, but it's the truth. Of course, the SNES games were impressive at the time with better graphics, better music, better realized world, more content... but the gameplay was worse. The games were already casualized. NES games were way more challenging. If you play a NES game today, it might FEEL like the game is broken or "janky", but only because games have become so easy. If you keep pushing at it, eventually you can of reach a "I get it" part were the game becomes a lot more "understandable". I don't know how else to put it. It's not just that you become better at the game, but that you start understanding the design philosophy behind the gameplay, so things stop feeling "unfair" and when you die, you go from "WTF that was bullshit" to "Oh yeah, that was totally my fault".
    Third problem is that yes, a lot of the best SNES games aren't on it.

    The best games on the service I think are the Donkey Kong Country games, Super Mario Kart and F-Zero.
    Super Mario World, Super Matroid and A Link to the Past are all fun games, but inferior to their NES predecessors.
    Important games that are missing would be Castlevania, Megaman, Contra 3, Bomberman,
    There was a lot of good JRPGs on the SNES but the only ones available on the service are subpar ones. No Final Fantasy, no Chrono Trigger, no Dragon Quest, no Mario RPG.

I know, I was there. The reason Super Metroid blew up was because it was way easier so kids could play it. People today go back and try NES games and quickly give up because the games are too hard and they blame it on "jank". If you actually give them an honest try and push past your comfort zone, you will see how good the games are.

          Such a stupid opinion. Almost all NES games are super difficult because of terrible design. Metroid 1 had loads of flaws due to lack of technology. Who the fuck would want their audience to accidentally fall in an acid pit that you can't escape from because the controls are janky as hell. Who wants to "explore" 50 of literally the exact same rooms down to the pixel. Enemies and their projectiles disappearing and still hitting you, or following you through walls. The constant flickering and flashing. It was good for its time, but super is about 100x better.

      Saying Super Metroid is worse than Metroid becuase SM is easier is just dumb. Not everyone plays videogames "to challenge themselves". SM does everything better than Metroid, even tho I agree its kind of too easy.

                False. Sunsoft's in-house output on the 16 bit platforms was almost always dogshit after they completely moved on from the 8-bit era. Their Neo Geo fighters are some of the very few exceptions. But if you want a more direct comparison: Final Fight; the port of FF1 on SNES was dogshit but Mighty Final Fight on NES absolutely stomps it just by sheer virtue of having all three original playable characters. Plus I'd argue that the largely original music score sounds better than the SNES port's conversions of the arcade soundtrack.

                I think Cotton 2/Boomerang is pretty notable for having some crazy mechanics for a hori shmup. Juggling stuff for points, grabbing enemies, it has a lot of great gimmicks to the gameplay. Boomerange is better than 2 imo, feels like the final version of the game.

                I did like those mechanics, i'll have to replay Boomerang at some point cause I don't think I gave it enough of a fair chance. I played 2 and Boomerang back to back and didn't give the mechanics enough time to click with me.

    Basically the third-party devs took a note out of Nintendo's garden gnomed schemes with overpriced ports and took anything notable left of theirs to release separately, either via insultingly small full-priced compilations or low-effort remakes. Remember, this was when third-party was still king on Nintendo; their own games may form the underlying "bones" of the platforms, but the third parties gave the NES and the SNES most of the meat on those bones.

        Especially the games on the SNES, there's absolutely no game hard enough that you can't just man the fuck up and take the occasional death. You have to be an actual brainlet to game over in the choice of games on there.

            play Gradius 3 arcade edition. Then come back to this thread and say you beat it without getting a game over or using save states.

            I was specifically talking about the ones on the SNES player switch service, I know there's actual hard shit like gradius 3 and contra on the actual SNES. But using savestates to "beat" the game defeats the point, you aren't supposed to beat those games but have fun seeing how far you can get. That's why even when you finish old games it still says "Game over".

              Contra had an ending, Mega Man1-6 all have endings, Gimmick has an ending, Bucky O'Hare has an ending. Sure, arcade games were meant for high scores, but those also looped after you beat them. Games on the NES and SNES had endings you were meant to see, so yes, beating them is the point.

    I pay for the expansion service but I probably won't next time the resub rolls around. They just haven't been adding enough games to make it worth it. I still have to make my way through the whole n64 library but the slow rate they've been trickling them in is worrisome. That and how they haven't been adding anything of value to the SNES, let alone anything new at all for Sega.

    Like I get it, these are consoles with libraries that haven't been updated in decades but I feel like there's still so much more that could be added and they just don't care or aren't willing to work to get them on.

    I also guess that leak from ages back with rumors of a GB/GBA addon amounted to nothing so far? I haven't heard anything about it since at least.

            I agree emulation is great but it's also not without its issues. Generally, with the exception of the gamecube and wii, newer consoles have gotten harder and harder to emulate effectively. And I'm not talking about power, I mean a huge percentage of games on new consoles just don't fucking work or run like shit. For example, I wanted to emulate Luigi's Mansion 2 a while back but it's extremely difficult to get it to work at all. It would be really nice if Nintendo could do emulators for some of these newer consoles just to get more games compatible.

      From speaking to Switch owners and people who buy compilations, I think some people like the feeling of owning a game officially, even if it can be easily emulated for free. For others (mostly zoomers) it's just more convenient than downloading and setting up RetroArch, which isn't hard and doesn't take long to do, but some people just don't know about it. That and some Nintendo fans are weird about emulation from an ethical standpoint, most likely because Nintendo themselves are so up in arms against it for some reason. And of course OP owns a Switch so he's gonna buy games for it, even if he can just play them on PC or any other platform. I agree that more people should just emulate, though.

        I'm a fan of emulating old games but I don't like emulating new games personally. The reason why is because if you don't buy it, then it may just stop getting made. It is the logical decision to support franchises you enjoy because otherwise you get F-Zero or at least Pikmin.

          Yeah, this went over really well for people who liked Star Fox and Chibi-Robo.

            There just weren't enough of you. Voting doesn't always mean your candidate will win and the same is true of voting with your wallet, but if you don't vote you don't get to complain about the result.

            Star Fox was more a victim of being used as a guinea pig for console gimmics, with Command on the DS and Zero on the Wii U when for decades people have been asking for something as simple as Star Fox 64 2. It's just sad when Kid Icarus and Kirby Planet Robobot gave us better Star Fox experiences than Star Fox itself.

    So you don't enjoy Kirby Super Star or A Link to the Past?

    The real value from Nintendo retro games is from the gba/gamecube/ds/wii
    Sadly, none of those are on NSO yet, meaning it's pretty fucking worthless. But I do think when Nintendo one day gets around to adding these games it could be worth it, if they don't increase the price too much.

    It's a good console. It was my favorite for a long time before I got into SEGA CD and TurboGrafx CD. Maybe you're just playing the wrong games, start with Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, and Mega Man X, then play the sequels of each. Kirby is good too. If you're looking for a deeper gameplay experience there's the RPG's, but I guess if it's really not your cup of tea there's always Genesis?

    Do you like shmups? You might like Gradius III or the Parodius games. The latter is on Saturn and PS1 but I actually experienced them first on Super Famicom. It also has the superior ports of Street Fighter II imo.

    It's just first party shit you've played a grilling times. A lot of studios aren't letting games on there because they're being resold (CastleVania, FF, a ton of beat em ups, Rocky and Pocky). I'd love for them to strike a deal with SE to dive deep into their vault. The Quintet games, Brain Lord, Twisted Tales of Spike McFang...

      They have enough first party games to sell the thing themselves, they're not not using them. The most requested consoles are definitely the gamecube/wii/ds/3ds, none of which are on there. It's embarrassing that NSO has been around for like 4 years now and still none of the most requested consoles are on there.

    I'm playing the N64 collection and it's very underwhelming, but I don't want to blame Nintendo itself when most of the games I'd like to see completely depend on the company's willingness to make them available or if said games are currently for purchase in other platforms, like Turok or Episode 1 Racer. It's still a miracle that we're getting Goldeneye but I wish there was more variety for the price one has to pay for the membership pass. The rate of release is way too slow overall and not worth it outside of getting the extra freebies like the MK8D Season Pass or the Octo Expansion.

      Even if Nintendo wanted to speed up releases, the N64 had fuck all for games, particularly first party. They really need to just add gamecube but sadly we're at least 3 years away from that because they need to add gameboy and gba first.

        At least give me Donkey Kong 64 and Banjo Tooie, we know that there's still good relationship between Nintendo and Rare so that's a possibility. Also, who holds the rights of Acclaim games? I know Turok might be impossible since the games are available on PC but I'd like to see Extreme G someday.
