When you compare the SNES to the other systems of the days, or even those out now, what makes it "stand out" for you? For me, it was the variety involved. The SNES had role playing, action, fighting games, sports etc. In effect, the SNES had no "niche". When I look at, say, the Xbox, it excelled at first person shooters and action games like LOK Defiance, however, it left a lot to be desired in the realm of RPGs. The PS1 and Genesis are the only 2 systems I can think of that rivaled the SNES across the board.
