What is the best 90s video game ?

It depends on what game genre you like to play. My favorite arcade game was Mortal Kombat. When Command and Conquer appeared on the personal computer, then I spent most of my game time with that game.

Fun question :D I'll have to break it down by system, too.

PC - Star Wars: Jedi Knights Dark Forces 2, hands down. I loved everything about that game, but especially the multiplayer. Lightsaber battles were so amazing, people building custom mods and levels and player-skins for it, oh man it was advanced for the time. Honorable mentions to Command & Conquer Gold and Starcraft as well.

NES - Super Mario Brothers 3

Sega Genesis - NBA Jam: Tournament Edition. I'm not really a basketball fan, it's just this game was ridiculously absurd with power ups and crazy dunks and it was hilariously fun. Honorable mention to Sonic, of course.

Nintendo 64 - Super Smash Brothers. Honorable mentions to WWF No Mercy, NFL Blitz, and Mario Party series.

Playstation 1 - WWF Smackdown 2. Honorable mention to Final Fantasy 8 and 9.

I didn't ever own a SNES. I did really enjoy Super Mario World though.

My favourites were Donkey Kong Kountry, Mortal Combat, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (Many lasses were into skaters at that time, so I became a skater for a couple of years.)

What about you @Ravishing Empire?

Wrestling games were much more playable in the 90s! I don't know what happened to the last two releases but both have been full of glitches. At least from what I saw.

The last WWE game I played was WWE2k16 I think. I also did WWE2k13 and either 12 or 14 for a bit (The one that CM Punk was the cover of). While I liked them, I felt they always left something to be desired as far as the submission system and countering system.

I look at Smackdown 5: Here Comes The Pain as the best wrestling game in my opinion. WWF No Mercy is super excellent too, but Smackdown 5 had an absolutely flawless counter system that you could get perfect at (Although some people may not like that as it'd lead to an insane counter war between 2 pro's).

I'm guessing glitches could be more common due to having to make these games cross-platform. I mean in years past, it was exclusive to console. You'd have a different WWE series for the X-Box, different for Playstation, different for Gamecube. But then they decided to just combine them all in to the WWE2K series and make them work on all consoles + PC and I imagine that sometimes creates unexpected glitches.
