#2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (SNES/Arcade)

The first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game arguably popularized the multiplayer beat-em-up genre. Without it and the massive success it was, several of the games on this list and many, many brawlers might never have existed without its success. They even produced an incredibly solid NES-exclusive sequel, The Manhattan Project, that improved on the first game.

But apparently, the final ingredient to really solidify what is the best TMNT game of all time was well… time. Time travel, that is. Well, that, and insane animation, fantastic multiplayer, creative bosses and some of the best music ever in an arcade brawler.

This game isn’t even particularly long, but it’s so fun that you want to play through it time and time again. Either the SNES or Arcade version is great, but I’m going to give a slight edge to the SNES version because the difficulty is a bit lower (since it’s not trying to eat your quarters) and I honestly prefer the opening on the SNES, which is more like the animated cartoon. But either way, it’s a truly classic game that I would love to have on any of my current consoles (but especially the Nintendo Switch).
