About

SNES A Day is a “chronogaming” website where I play and write about every Super Nintendo game released in North America in chronological order. I did it every day for a while, but I’m aiming for a post a week for now. It’s quite the undertaking but I’m having a blast doing it.

Accuracy is something I strive for, but the nature of this blog means I can’t spend a ton of time on each game I write about. A few hours, usually. I like to think of it as popping the Game Pak into the system with no expectations. The goal is to figure out whether a game is worth playing or not today. I play these games on the SNES9x and bsnes emulators on my PC for convenience and ease of capturing photos and videos.

I came up with the idea of this blog after readingĀ Earthbound, by Ken Baumann, and the Reverse Design series of gameplay analysis books. I recommend both if you’re itching for more writing about the Super Nintendo. If you’re interested in listening to people talk about retro games, check out the legendary Retronauts podcast.

SNES A Day has been featured in Brett Weiss’ The SNES Omnibus (Vol. 1 and Vol. 2). They are wonderful books!

Thank you for reading!
