We Knew It Was Coming: The SNES Classic Edition

It’s funny, I was just talking to some friends the other day, us all discussing what games we would want to see on a hypothetical SNES Classic Edition console, and what does Nintendo do today but announce it coming, with 21 games. Sure, not nearly as many as the NES Classic Edition had at 30 …
