The Top Ten

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.
No Legend has ever stood side-by-side with Ocarina of Time. Well, maybe Majora's Mask, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword, but hey, it doesn't matter, they're all from the Legend of Zelda series anyways
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 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!
Super smash bros brawl I mean come on! Very few like it. If its my opinion I would say this is the best nintendo game EVVAAR! (maybe tying to be the best with supermario64 DS not just supermario64) Just such a amazingly good game, it may take a while to master but when you master it go have fun and play it!

3Super Mario Bros. 3
Fun game happy music hard super nice gameplay cool bosses the relse of the koopa kids and some levels you can just fly over wit the super leaf like the cape feder in super mario world best game ever!
All the levels and secrets in this game are breathtaking.


4Super Smash Brothers

all three of em are grear #1


Hours of goreless fighting.


Ohh... these bring back memories!


5The 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

6The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
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.
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.

7Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

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


No doubt this is one of Link's most memorable adventures.


8Paper Mario
The greatest RPG game ever. So much better than ocarina of time or any legend of zelda game.


9Super Mario 64
It's still a fun game to play.

10Super 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.

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.


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

12Super Mario Bros.

13Super Mario World
Music best music ever greate game play and its fun
The game who brought up the best character ever who is Yoshi deserves one spot
The best game ever

14The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

15The 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!
My favorite Zelda game best storyline funny villain origans of the master sword and hyrule should be at the top of the list.
Revolutionized the way motion controls works and had one of the most epic storylines of all time. Simply a masterpiece.

16Super Mario Galaxy

17Super 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!
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.
Super metroid should be in the top 10s it is the best game for the snes!

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

19Pokemon 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


20Fire Emblem: Awakening

21Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

The wonderful storyline in this game is awe-inspiring. The battle sequences are a wonderful touch.


ZOMG hours of my life well spent finishing this 4 times


22Kid 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.

23Super Mario 3D World

24Guitar Hero 3

With songs like:

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

I can go on and on...


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


25Kirby's Epic Yarn

26Mario Kart: Double Dash
I can;t believe smash brothers brawl got ahead of this when all you do is fight.

27Donkey Kong Country Returns

28Animal Crossing

29Chrono 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 :

30New Super Mario Bros. U
Why is new super mario bros you all the way down here? This game is one of the best games on the wii you
New geneason of gaming

31Pokemon Sapphire

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


32Donkey Kong

33Kirby: Squeak Squad

34Super Mario Sunshine

35Mario Kart Wii

36Resident Evil 4

37The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX
Got it on 3ds 3rd best Zelda I've played

38Mother 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.

39The Legend of Zelda
Defeat ganon and others

40Pokemon FireRed

41Pokemon X

42Luigi's Mansion
Fun game music to die for you can call me stuped but its my list fun game
This is the game that sealed Nintendo having a game for EVERY type of game being the first exploration game that was actually fun. I REGRET NOTHING!


43Mario Kart DS

44Star 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!

61Super 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.
