Not Super Ghouls and Ghosts. Let me tell you how bad Super Ghouls and Ghosts is.
Firstly, there is no "save game" option in Super Ghouls and Ghosts for the SNES. You have a finite number of lives, a finite number of credits to use once you've lost all your lives, and you have a finite time limit for each level. If you run out of all lives and all credits, you have to start the game over again from the very start.
Now let me tell you how ridiculously difficult it is to get to the end. You have to beat 8 stages to finish the game. You can collect armor, magic armor, golden magic armor, and a shield in that order, as a series of upgrades from any of the treasure chests hidden throughout the level. If at any point you are hit while you have any of those upgrades, you lose everything and fight in a loincloth. The first, second, third, and fourth upgrade all yield only one extra "hit point" to your character.
You have to beat the entire without losing many lives and without losing many credits. Try not to get hit even once, try not to drop into any of the pitfalls in this side scrolling platformer. The reason you have to do this without losing pretty much everything is that once you beat the game to save your kidnapped wife from the final boss, your wife's ghost shows up and tells you that you can't save her without getting a piece of jewelry that's hidden somewhere in the game. She tells you to fuck off and go back to pick up her bracelet in a random hidden chest.
You have to beat the ENTIRE GAME AGAIN. The setting is automatically adjusted up one level. Beginners get pushed to Normal, Normals get pushed to Expert, Experts get pushed to Professional. You have to beat the entire game again, collect every single chest in every level, and try to get the Suit of Armor, followed by the Magic Suit of Armor upgrade, followed by the Gold Magic Suit of Armor, followed by the Shield, followed by this new unlocked special bracelet called the Goddess Bracelet. And by the way, the Goddess Bracelet takes up your weapon slot replacing whatever badass game-improving weapons you've collected with the worst weapon ever designed.
So now you beat this entire game again without getting hit once, without accidentally picking up a new weapon and losing your Goddess Bracelet, and try to somehow defeat these absurd demon things using the worst weapon available. You have to collect chests in the exact right order in every level in order to upgrade yourself all the way to the Goddess Bracelet. That order changes any time you use a credit.
Dumb game. At least I have an Earthbound cartridge. I need Super Metroid and I'll be happy.

That series was practically made to be challenging though ,it's probably not the most difficult game to play these days though considering the learning curve of games like dark souls. BUT yeah it's bullshit that you have to go through replaying the whole game again
I don't own all that many SNES games but Super Metroid is the winner for me by a decent margin.
I think it I was to go back and play Link to the Past I'd appreciate it a lot more than the one and only time I've beaten it previously. Back then I was trying to rush through it and was getting too frustrated at certain points to really enjoy it.

Haven't played very many SNES titles at all but from what I know I'm inclined to say Final Fantasy VI.
For the story of course.
Harvest Moon and Zelda I think.
Ahh yeah...back then, when Harvest Moon used to be the slightest bit challenging

I'm a huge fan of snes music and graphics but haven't played many snes games, mine is a link to the past, though.
My all time favouurite SNES game is Shin Nekketsu Kouha - Tachi No Banka! . It's part of Kunio-kun game franchise and it is a beat 'em-up. Features 2 players co-op and players can choose from 4 characters, two which are unlocked by playing the game. The story is pretty solid too. I suggest you give it a try.
Probably Super Castlevania IV or DKC2, both are super fun to play, especially with buds. Super Smash TV and Musya are fun as hell too. Musya is pretty hard tho o:
Super punch out, back in the day that was probably the funnest game to play getting drunk with people, i liked pilot wings alot too but it gets old after awhile, and bram stokers dracula was a keeper, so, those 3.
I guess my favourite is either Super Castevania IV or Final Fantasy VI, but I haven't played the latter in a long time. I really haven't played nearly enough SNES.

Of the entire SNES library you pick one of the very few games that were better on the Genesis. Step it up son.

FIGHT ME 'BOUT IT.
I seriously gotta play that Genesis version.
The 7th Saga.
It was the first JRPG I ever played. It is a crappy, yet haunted, yet ugly world for a reason--it may be based off a real legend. Therefore I can appreciate it much more, especially with the very excellently drawn enemies and plot tasks that you do, along with the very memorable towns with city planning and names that I can still remember, whereas other contemporary JRPGs of that era, I cannot remember much about their layouts at all. I also remember the haunting world map music, of which there are four different songs. The Japanese version, Elnard, was weak, compared to this game which was created more closely to the specifications of the original developer.
If you dive into it, you will find a punishing atmosphere for evil sorcerer people, and the ending, along with the leadup to the end, has several strange interpretations from people I have discussed with. And Pison is probably Satan.

I loved that game even though they screw up some of the stat algorithms in the US version and made the rivals far stronger.
Lejes and vasu are my favorites too bad they hate each other to much to work as a team.
I'm the guy with the funny name.
MegaMan X, Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country, Secet of Mana, and Starfox. I mean, I could list dozens more. The SNES was my console back in the day. I think some of my earliest memories stem back to being three and playing the crap outta super mario all-stars.

Games like those were meant to fill your time. There's challengine, like Dark Souls, and there's unfair. How else would they have justified the price tag?
I AM THE FUCKING STRONG
