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.


GUITAR HERO IS MADE BY Activision NOT Nintendo!
To predictable... Before you yell at me, I played this game 100% but really...
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]There are 6 Zelda Games in the Top 20. That alone speaks for how good the franchise is. And this game is the most definitive Zelda adventure ever.

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]It's like a Nintendo fan fiction, IN A GAME

3Super Mario Bros. 3
Why is SMB3 the only mainstream Super Mario game/cartoon with the Frog Suit?! Why does it even debut there instead of Mario Land?!
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.


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.
I feel that this is the perfect place for this game. But higher would be better. I think the Zelda and Mario games made Nintendo to what it is today and this is probably the best Zelda game ever.

5Super Mario 64
It's still a fun game to play.
I hope whoever put this game on the list is referring to the original N64 version because it is the best game ever!

The DS version? Not so much, but the N64 version is best!
Greatest 3D Mario of all.
[Newest]Why is Super Mario bros 3 above this


6The 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
An incredible game that changed my life I honestly love it so much... no Zelda can top it.
I really loved this game!

7Super Smash Bros Melee
A masterpiece of a game that can be played by absolutely anyone, and need I mention that this game has stayed relevant in gaming longer than almost any other game, 2014, and this is still being played by professionals at major events, some may say that smash never needed to be competitive, but I disagree. Much better than Brawl
At first glance, this game looks vastly inferior to its Wii sequel, with a roster of only 25 characters, half of which appear to be clones of each other, and a generally lower amount of features. What it lacks in miscellaneous extras, however, it makes up for with its vastly superior gameplay to Brawl. While in Brawl, the player feels like they are floating through an enormous glob of Jell-O, Melee's fast falling speed lends it to more immediate response, and is generally more fun as a result.
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.
[Newest]ALL smash games should be up there!

8Super 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

9Super 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

10Super Mario Galaxy
This game... Where should I start?... This game is fantastic. From beginning to end pure perfection everywhere. So much fun! Great graphics! AMAZING soundtracks! I can't fit everything I want to say in one comment... This was the first game I ever played and it will probably be my favorite forever.
This game is amazing it is such a pure new idea and is perfect start to finish. It is so bright and fun while being challenging. It's music is amazing, I love gusty gardens music
This must be higher. It is amazing and has such an original idea and the music is amazing too. While being a challenging game it is fun and bright

The Contenders

11Super Smash Brothers
Ohh... these bring back memories!


Hours of goreless fighting.


all three of em are grear #1


12The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
This game is AMAZING! It's my favourite legend of Zelda game. He child like features and amazing sound track make a great game. Plus, the new hd version is super and I can't see and flaws. Sure, it can be annoying waiting and waiting in a sail boat traveling around, but the game makes up for it. There's been loads of times I've went to dragon roast island just to dance around to the music. Personally, this game should be in the top 3 at least.


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.

13Paper Mario
The greatest RPG game ever. So much better than ocarina of time or any legend of zelda game.


One of the best Mario story line's there is

14Legend 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


15Super Mario Bros.
The one that started them all, great game for everyone love it
The good old Mario Bros.

16Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
up with paper mario! Dang he should have been in Smash bros. Brawl.


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.
I put over 50 hours into each file. I've replayed it almost 25 times!
[Newest]My favorite game ever!

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!
[Newest]Best SNES game there is

18Pokemon Red
Best. Game. Of. Pokemon. Series.
Why is this so far down on the list this should obviously be higher as it is one of the game that started the whole Pokemon franchise


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


19Fire Emblem: Awakening
Has a lot of depth, great story and characters. DLC is good too.

20The 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.
Get this game in the top ten peeps. It's the prequel to Ocarina of Time. And it is amazing.
