Obviously we agree on some selections and disagree on others, but we didn't want to get too our own selections as we're having our own 2012 game awards show. We offered up only slight commentary on some winners and non winners and even went back and looked at some winners from the past. Show notes after the jump.

Episode 47: Best of the SNES

We decided to take on the good old SNES in this week's episode, listing our 5 favorite games for the system and honorable mentions that we either didn't play but were popular, or games that could have made our list but didn't.  Our last segment of episode 47 also gets mysteriously deleted, so Dan records a very brief ending to the episode.
