Console: Super Nintendo
For fans of Final Fantasy and Mario games alike, this is the perfect combination of both genres. Squaresoft, the company behind the Final Fantasy series and Chrono Trigger, placed Mario into his own fantasy adventure game. Exploration takes place on the vast world map, while combat is handled via familiar turn-based mechanics. All other facets of a true RPG from this developer are present, including item upgrades and a well thought-out storyline. Though the story has been done before, in which you rescue a princess, the RPG delivery puts a new twist on things. The result is an adventure that will provide die-hard Mario fans with a new way to explore the Mario world.
