I feel like ROM Hacks have a reputation for being harder, less polished, and more frustrating than your typical professional video game. I can't say that isn't an entirely unearned stereotype—they're usually made as a hobby in someone's spare time, so the extra polish of a real video game is usually missing.

Generally, I've only looked deeper into Super Mario World hacks, and out of all the ones I've played, I personally think the SMW hack JUMP½ has been my favorite hack so far.

It's not exactly an easy game, but it's far from ultra hard difficulty. The overall amount of creativity, polish, and crazy cool set pieces make it a wonderful experience. You can even unlock a shop that lets you buy a few items that make the experience a bit easier, such as an item that enhances your fireball attack, or an item that can revive Mario once per-life if he dies. It's not easy to sell it blindly like this, but I think if you're a somewhat skilled SMW player, you'll have a good time with it. It's been a while since I've played it and 100%ed the whole thing, but I have fond memories of it. Ah, it was only last year lol

Any other ROM hacks out there that are worth checking out? I know that Sonic the Hedgehog has an impressive hacking scene, so maybe I'll look there next.

Rom hacks were my life and soul back in the day, being that I didn't have a very good computer. For the Sonic scene I would recommend Sonic Classic Heros, Metal Sonic Hyperdrive, and Sonic Megamix.

Rom hacks were always fun to mess around with back in the day, but I feel like now it's a lot easier now a days to find really good rom hacks for example I started playing a rom hack of mario 64 that's called Super Mario 64 land I had a great time playing it even if I've been lazy and only done a few levels so far. xD

Rom hacks can be really fun, usually depending on what they do or how good they are. Like I went through a stage where I was basically addicted to pokemon rom hacks, they were a part of my every day routine at one point. I kinda miss those days but it just leaves me more time to be able to do other things I enjoy now too so silver lining? XD
