Re: Super Nintendo is 19 years old (and still works).
I've collected old consoles and games for years until I discovered emulators a few years back. Even though I have virtually every game ever made for the old systems on my computer, there is nothing like playing it on a console.
For the saved games not working... you can buy a tool on ebay that opens up the game. It's not a special tool or anything just a certain size allen wrench if memory serves me correctly. You can also buy the batteries inside the games fairly cheap. It only takes a few minutes to replace those batteries and the saved games will work like new. You can find the step by step instructions with a google search and it's really easy. About 5 years ago I replaced the batteries in all my old games.
I was wondering why when I inserted the game cartridge Super Metroid, NONE of my progress was being saved!?? I'll have to Google around to find the battery type/size and how to replace it.
