fact: you need the super scope and mouse for the full SNES experience even just rentals so you can say you've used them

I don't think you are missing out on many great games not having these 🤷‍♂️
 
This phrase is cringy to me. Please use that sparingly from now on. Just saying

Some things are necessary to get the point across. "Didnt have a killer app"
is not one of them

You say that like it's a bad thing  

Metal Combat is even better, improves everything about Battleclash

Am I playing a different Punch Out? Because it's definitely got lots of that.

I'd love to see a hack on the Super NT (or something) to use the SNES mouse with the SS6 games. The SS6 I had back in the day up until maybe 7 years ago now and it sucked, too bulky compared to a zapper.

I didn't see it brought up, but there are simulation games on the SNES that were also on the PC. They're clunky stock on the SNES, but those that can use the mouse open up some really nice doors to far better experiences when playing. I own the original Civilization on SNES and using the mouse with it makes the game navigate far better, and get around the menus easier too. I should try out that Mario And Wario game, never have even though I have an everdrive.

Also I agree never call an old video game an app, that's phone lingo not old cartridge games. The SS6 never much had a killer game for it, some could have been maybe if done a little nicer and people were more aware of it like the T2 arcade game, but it just wasn't meant to be.

Their only good song is Dream On. And it doesn't even sound like them... which must be why it's the best.

The phrase "killer app" predates smartphones by decades. It was first applied to VisiCalc in 1979 and I think the first video game killer app was Space Invaders for the Atari 2600 around the same time.

All it means is a piece of software on limited platforms that people will spring for the hardware in order to use. Space Invaders spurred a big jump in Atari 2600 console sales just so people could play it at home.

Well, go complain to the tech industry because they still use it to this day.

THIS!!!! I have always planned to eventually find a mouse and copy of mario paint to play that again. Just haven't gotten around to it. Loved that crap.

Super Scope - never owned or played with one. I almost bought one locally a few months back, but declined because the scope was missing and all cracked where it should be. Always been curious about them. After a lot of the feedback in this thread, tempted to try to find one now.

I had a super scope and only got around to trying it last year. Without the nostalgia I think it was lost on me. Ended up getting rid of it.

I thought everyone pre-smartphone era was already familiar with the term "killer app." Most successful platforms can point to one, like the Genesis with Sonic the Hedgehog, Atari home computers with Star Raiders (couldn't do that with a simple 1-button joystick), XBOX Live with Halo 2, and more.

Heck, VisiCalc and spreadsheets in general were seen as a "killer app" for all of personal computers since it demonstrated so well how computers could change the way people do things in a way that's extremely useful for your real world professional and home use. It didn't just change what you could do with a computer, it changed what you could do with finance and math and made you want a computer. Once it existed it became nearly essential for many and you simply weren't going to get that nearly-essential functionality from a calculator and paper ledger.

Spreadsheets were such an unexpected and useful thing for most that it made people optimistic for what else they could make computers do. Even people who didn't need spreadsheets bought PCs as a result. It fueled everything.

Aerosmith's back catalogue from the 70s through mid-80s or so is where it's at. When alternative came into fashion in the early 90s, they changed their style to reflect current trends and their music went stale. I have a vintage pressing vinyl lp of Toys In The Attic. Great album. Big Ten Inch is a huge double entendre where he uses vintage shellac 78s as a euphsmism for penis size. Classy. Rock music just ain't what it used to be anymore.
