I'm watching someone play Metroid: Rogue Dawn on Twitch and it looks freaking INCREDIBLE. It just came out a few days ago, I guess. Can honestly say that it's one of the best looking ROM hacks I have ever seen despite only having watched for a few minutes so far.

 

Anyone know of some really well-made ROM hacks out there? I especially like seeing ones with significant graphical overhauls, rather than simple gameplay mechanic tweaks.

I've been slowly digging into the romhacks folder of the NES Everdrive rom pack I downloaded. Lots of typically nude hacks haha.

The first one I tried was Batman Shadows of Gotham, which is a hack of Shadow of the Ninja. It's not a huge overhaul because the levels are mostly the same, but still being able to coop Batman and Robin is pretty cool. The hack has infinite lives so it's pretty easy. I watched MIG and Joe.distort play through it at my house a few months ago.

the talkhaus' 'make a vanilla level design' contest has been gettin lp'd for the last few weeks...i think last years took about 3 1/2 to 4 months to lp the whole thing.. but if you want to play a really good smw hack id head over there and scoop it, they put a shitload of attention into the overworld landscape and how it all fits together, its not like first place, second place etc...this first level in this vid is pretty cheeky. its hard to believe some of these levels are vanilla. as far as smw hacks go, i can probably name the best ones but if you just wanna play some murios, check this out, its chill. all of the games designed by anikiti are great. JUMP is great too. those and the VIPs, brutal mario and hyper v would probably be my favs.

whoa that rogue dawn looks good! played AM2R, SM and Fusion last year and kinda got burnt out on metroid after that, but I'm definitely gonna have to try that out. 

I think this is a good rom hack to watch vids of cause it's so funny, but definitely not one i'd wanna play

I'm imagining Ellis writing the script to this at a computer, and every time he gets to the end of a line about religion being bad he smacks his fedora to tip it, making the sounds of a typewriter being reset.

There aren't many I know with extensive graphical changes, but on the top of my head, my favorite hacks are:

 

Super Demo World: The Legend Continues

Final Fantasy IV: Unprecedented Crisis

The Legend of Zelda: Shadow of Night

The Legend of Zelda: Parallel Worlds

Likewise, Wilford Brimley Battle is pretty decent.

I found a Ken Griffey Jr MLB rom hack tool that allowed you to change players' looks and ratings.  I used it to create some pretty ridiculous teams. 

 

Also I have no idea if this counts or not, but Brutal Doom is one of the more epic upgrades or 'hacks' to a game I've ever seen.  It changes... everything.
