The Top Ten

1
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Great and amazing game!
Such a revolutionary game and really changed the way games were made from there on out!
No game has ever reached this amount of perfection and caliber as this one did.
And another thing, WHY THE HELL IS GUITAR HERO ON THIS LIST?!?!
GUITAR HERO IS MADE BY ACTIVISION NOT NINTENDO!
You know the feeling Pokémon gives to the player? That feeling of "you're in the game"? Well, this game gives that feeling too, but instead of walking around and make your Pokémons fight, in this one you slay monsters in attempt to save your world. Definitely worth its spot. Who the hell added guitar hero.
You know a game is fantastic when you find yourself coming back to it again and again, even after you've beaten it! I have never stopped loving this game, and it will forever be the best Zelda game ever created!

2Super Smash Bros. Brawl
WHY isn't THIS NUMBER 1?! It has all my favorite characters and more. I'm addicted to adventure mode, and the brawls are great. Great story line, bringing all of nintendos best games together for an epic game. Absolutely love it. All time greatest characters fom all time greatest game. I can make teams of people from other games. I love how the pokemon are added, ugh, perfect game.

This should DEFIANTLY be #1. If you are a big gamer you have to like this game. It has all of your favorite characters with their own stage and special powers. In this game, it can easily bring out each characters personality and skills. The extras are some of the best parts of the game. Also, for anybody that thinks its just stupid fighting, it's a lot more that that. There's a story mode, fun training and lots of skill-building mini games. If you don't like this game, play it.
This needs to be number one and I have a list of games that are not nintendo but are not in here! Guitar hero 3, final fantasy, resident evil, pac-man, popeye, and the simpsons game and those are not nintendo games!

Oreanta

It's the best nes Mario game, but it's the mark of the devil.
Crouch 6 seconds you go down, there's 6 arrows, and go to the sixth door. THAT'S 666!

4The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
How does this come before Skyward Sword and Link to the Past? This is a much better game than those two
I really loved this game!
I cannot understand how people hate this game

5The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Probably the deepest and the most compelx Zelda series game. The plot is just amazing and full of meaning which can be interpreted in many ways. The best N64, Zelda and action adventure game of all times. It's unique and refined. If you don't like video games and you didn't play this one... you have no idea what are you talking.
Guitar hero isn't even a nintendo game this list is just weird. I had no idea paper mario was this popular, and I really don't think super smash bros deserves that much credit. I predicted number one, but I couldn't predict anything else. Majora's mask is my favorite zelda game, and it would have either been this or super mario 64, so I just went with this.
Awesome in every way. it sticks out and in the beast way of any game I've played to this day (which is a lot). You can play it casually though I wouldn't recommend it because this game deserves all your spare time til you finish it 100%. it goes so much deeper than it shouws in a playthrough and if you just occationally stop and think about all you've done in the game and what is could and have lead to you'll realise why this is the best game ever made.

6Super Smash Brothers
Ohh... these bring back memories!

Oreanta

Hours of goreless fighting.

all three of em are grear #1

7Super Mario 64
It's still a fun game to play.
This what started it all for the bestselling handheld..

xCHAOSNARUTOx


8Super Smash Bros Melee
Super Smash Bros Melee was a fantastic fighting game with an amazing roster of characters. It is probably the best game on the Gamecube. I'm surprised the other 2 Smash Bros are ahead of Melee.
Best in the smash brothers series
2 smash bros but it is still good but a little bad

9Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
No doubt this is one of Link's most memorable adventures.

Oreanta

I havn't played ocarina enough to know if its better than this

moose4life19


10Paper Mario
The greatest RPG game ever. So much better than ocarina of time or any legend of zelda game.

The Contenders

11Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
One of my favorite games of all time in my opinion! I love it SO MUCH! I played it non-stop when I first got it.
up with paper mario! Dang he should have been in Smash bros. Brawl.

Oreanta

Play it! Just play it and see what makes a good game.

12The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Great storyline and graphics (Opinion: Better than Twilight Princess) Opinion! I value yours.
Mario Kart 8 should like 20 to 10. It's so so epic.

13Super Metroid
HOW IS THIS NOT TOP 10?! This game is GENIUS, everything is amazing about it and only few other Nintendo games compare. The fact that SSB1 and Paper Mario is in top 10, yet this, Super Mario 64 and Super Mario World aren't shows how moronic this site is. VOTE!
Super metroid should be in the top 10s it is the best game for the snes!
What makes this game so great is how it combines the fun platforming of a 2-D mario game and the concept of an alien space hunter, the first metroid. I just love this game.

17Pokemon Red
Why isn't this no. One this is my childhood in a nutshell? So life change fun and revolutionary, nintendo wouldn't be half as succesful if it wasnt for pokemon and mario series

Nikokomomo


18Super Mario Galaxy 2
Super Mario Galaxy 2 was AWESOME! WHY IS IT NUMBER 19!?

19Fire Emblem: Awakening
Fire Emblem isn't just is SSB Brawl.

20Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
The wonderful storyline in this game is awe-inspiring. The battle sequences are a wonderful touch.

Oreanta

ZOMG hours of my life well spent finishing this 4 times

Gunti


21The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Oh. My. God. Send this game to the top of the list, for goodness' sake! Great locations, amazing dungeons, awesome bosses, intriguing story... Skyward Sword has it all!
Revolutionized the way motion controls works and had one of the most epic storylines of all time. Simply a masterpiece.
My favorite Zelda game best storyline funny villain origans of the master sword and hyrule should be at the top of the list.

22PAC-MAN

23Star Fox 64
WHAT! 42nd! WHAT! This is the most amazing game I ever played. Unique levels, butt-kickin' animals, easy-to-learn maneuvers, great graphics, challenging bosses, vs. Mode, training mode for beginners, different power-ups & great critical reception. SHAME ON THOSE WHO THINK MARIOKART DS IS BETTER! That game is bull-crap! CrAppY GraPh1cs, impossible controls, pathetic battle mode & shameful track selection. How the heck does that piece of crap compare to this cartridge of glory on a phenomenon of a console. HOW!

24Metroid Prime #
I just picked up this game a few months ago, and I have to say I have never enjoyed a game this much. It aged perfectly, unlike most Zelda games (except Wind Waker), and it's worth playing, 'cause it's fun, unlike most Mario games. damn masterpiece, that's what this game is.
This game should defimetly be in the top ten it has by far the best plot in a nitendo game the game play is sick and halo was baed of the prime series. It is the best metroid game hands down.

25Guitar Hero 3
With songs like:

Rock you like a Hurricane
Through the Fire and Flames
One
Paranoid
Stricken
Knights of Cydonia
Cult of Personality
Raining Blood
Before I Forget
Slow Ride

I can go on and on...

AymanKabir

Wow... what a selection of guitars, characters and songs. Definitely a top 10.

26Kid Icarus: Uprising
Fun and original from start to finish. Can you get a 100% complete file? Most people can't. If I compared this game to another I would compare it to call of duty. Why? Well this game has you fighting killing and blasting your way through enemies (most certainly has a difference). To top it off there is that online gaming that everyone loves. This game even has hilarious dialogue and eye popping levels that will bring you back for more. And wait... Does that rock have a face!?!
An expansive, funny and addictive shooter with brilliant voice acting, mesmerizing music and a punishing difficulty system. One of the top games in existence.
Literally the best game I have ever played. Ever.

27Conker's Bad Fur Day
This is my favorite game ever. It's so funny!

28Mario Kart: Double Dash

29Super Mario 3D World
Probz one of the best Wii you games ever!

30Resident Evil 4
It's on gamecube but it's by capcom

xCHAOSNARUTOx


31Kirby's Epic Yarn

32Metroid Prime 2 Echos

33Animal Crossing
Animal crossing is the best game ever! I can't believe it's so far down. You can do whatever you want in this game. You get connected with the characters VERY easily. I've been playing this all my life, and I can gladly say this game is the best.

34Super Mario Sunshine
It is just so fun but where did all the brown poop come from?

35Chrono Trigger
The most emotional and compelling adventure ever, even better than Zelda, oh, and I'm not just copying what I saw on the package, this is the real deal.
Simplesmente o melhor rpg de todos os tempos! Devia estar entre os top 15 no mínimo :

36Mario Kart 64

37Donkey Kong Country Returns

38Banjo-Kazooie
Has funny puns grate bosses greate music but not so greate gameplay but its fun

39Donkey Kong

40Pokemon Sapphire

Who can forget the secret base mode? Probably the best thing about the game.

Oreanta


41New Super Mario Bros. U

New geneason of gaming

42Mario Kart Wii

43Kirby: Squeak Squad

44Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance

45Mother 3
Guitar hero, Resident evil, and Final fantasy they all share one thing in common, none of them are nintendo games. If you think nintendo made ff your dead wrong. If you want to see good nintendo RPGs go with the mother series. It has an amazing story to tell, with amazing gameplay, and role reversal. A trait not seen in many RPG's This game is everything you could want in an RPG, and the best part is it is relevant to this list, because it was actually made by nintendo.
Mother 3 is AMAZING! I can't believe you people care more for Final Fantasy than THIS MASTERPIECE. Its an awesome RPG with awesome music, amazing story, well designed characters. This game should be #1!
Google up the 1st chapter, the 6th Chapter, Tanetane Island & the final battle.
Oh, and the apocalypse.

By the way, the protagonist's 12 years old.

Now try not to be mentally scarred or suffer emotional trauma.

65Mario Party Advance

67Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Wait… Wut? Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, the game that Kept the SNES around for a whole year after it's original US cancellation date, the game that revolutionized Mario games and platform games in general? This isn't my favorite Nintendo game, but it gets my vote simply because it needs to be higher. MUCH HIGHER.

68Duck Hunt

69Kirby's Adventure
This game definitely deserves to be above the stupid simpsons game.
