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.
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!
[Newest]One of the greatest games all time. Everybody have to play it.

2Super Smash Bros. Brawl
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.
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!
[Newest]You can play it for 500 hours and it wont be boring. Even better than Ocarina of Time in my opinion.

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.


The next step in Mario started here!

4The 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.
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.
This game is so much better than ocarina of time
[Newest]This game is one of if not the best Zelda games (way better then ocarina) and the Zelda games are Nintendo's top series.

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!
Very, very good Zelda. Second best after Ocarina of Time.

6Super Mario 64
It's still a fun game to play.
This what started it all for the bestselling handheld..


Greatest 3D Mario of all.

7Super Smash Brothers
Ohh... these bring back memories!


Hours of goreless fighting.


all three of em are grear #1


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
I'm sure many of you will disagree but this is my favorite smash bros game.

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


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


10The 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.

The Contenders

11Paper Mario
The greatest RPG game ever. So much better than ocarina of time or any legend of zelda game.


12Super 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.

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

14Super Mario Bros.

15Super Mario Galaxy
This is one of the first games to get 3d platforming right in this generation so seriously 15, give me a break
It is a really good 3d game.
15? REALLY? Ythis is the greatest gmae invented! Gamerankigns even shows it t has the best aggregate score! And yet oot still gets all the credit. :(


16Paper 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.
[Newest]Best paper Mario 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


Best. Game. Of. Pokemon. Series.

18Star 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!

19Super Mario Galaxy 2
Super Mario Galaxy 2 was AWESOME! WHY IS IT NUMBER 19!?
Should be number 10. Better than A Link to the Past and so on.
One of the best wii games. Should be in the top 10

20Fire Emblem: Awakening
Has a lot of depth, great story and characters. DLC is good too.
Fire Emblem isn't just is SSB Brawl.

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.
I was actually going to pick up tis game for cristmas. I heard it a great game!

22Fire 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


This isn't a Nintendo game! It's a Namco game!

24Animal 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.

25Guitar 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.


So many good songs!

26Metroid 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 is... FANTASTIC!
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.

27Kid 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.

28Conker's Bad Fur Day
This is my favorite game ever. It's so funny!

29Kirby's Epic Yarn

30Mario Kart: Double Dash
I can;t believe smash brothers brawl got ahead of this when all you do is fight.

31Super Mario 3D World
