sleepynice having just finished FF6 on my snes mini, my vote would be “absolutely do that”.
i only have the SNES mini because, until they brought them to the Switch, it was clearly the best way to have a decent version of Super Metroid/SMW/Zelda 3 ready to go on a HDTV. the controllers feel exactly like the originals, the emulation is pretty good, the savestates/rewind is implemented very well and it’s got a really nice, subtle scanline filter.
the SNES is the only one currently out with a library of stuff (including added ROMs) i’d want to return to regularly, aside from maybe the PS1, but it sounds like that classic unit isn’t great and I have a lot of PS1 stuff on PSP/PS3 already.
would love a GBA classic with a decent screen and link cable support.
