Top Ten Legend of Zelda and Mario Games


The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

The very best, no questions asked

Hands down best game ever

I think you mean "time" - Ajkloth

Hero of Twilight, Hero of Wind, Hero of Time, and Hero of Hyrule! That is 4 Links!
Oldest to Newest Links
1) 1986-1993 Original Link
2) 1998-2001 Ocarina of Time Link
3) 2002-2009 Toon Link
4) 2006-Presents Twilight Princess Link

2 Super Mario 64


Mario 64 is the king and will always remain king! It's so packed with fun things (I finished the game pretty quick though) and it's got some REALLY well hidden stars (I got my eyes on you "Watch For Falling Rocks") it is so AWESOME that nothing could get near it untill 3D World! The Galaxy games were also great as well and I had loads of fun with them too.

OThis needs to be top 1, above the overrated (yet great) Ocarina of Time.

3 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Ah, the good old games.

4 Super Mario Galaxy

My childhood game.

How come Princess Peach let herself get kidnapped & have a near-death experience?! She gave us the evil eye! Hates us! She should be replaced by Princess Daisy.

When did she give us the evil eye? She sucks but I don't remember THAT part of the game! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Seriously is there a single list on this site where Ocarina isn't number one? Its an amazing game but nauseatingly overrated this along with the sequel is pretty much the holy grail of platforming and now it is the most critically acclaim game of all time on gamerankings last I checked. Best game ever. - HeavyDonkeyKong

How the hell is this piece of programming worthlessness higher than Galaxy 2 - Lord28

5 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

This game is absolutely amazing. There's nothing to complain about it.

6 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Personally my favorite Game ever the first game I 100%,and the first Zelda game I played( minsh cap was the first Zelda game I completed

People need to really stop hating on this game. It's a great game and it's WAY BETTER than Wind Waker.

100% my favorite Zelda game of all time, and possibly my favorite game of all time.

I agree. The Wii Zeldas were the best in my opinion.

7 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

My personal favorite of the Zelda series - winfreyb

Really? This is below sunshine...

8 Super Mario Sunshine

I love this game. I really do! I don't know why, it just captivates me more than any other Mario game I've played! The F.L.U.D.D. Pack led for some surprisingly fun gameplay for a game about cleaning graffiti. I can't say this should be number one. I haven't played Super Mario 64 yet, but this game deserves it's spot at number six.

Underrated. Who cares if Peach gets kidnapped? It lead to this unique video game! - HeavyDonkeyKong

You can't like this game for Princes sPeach getting kidnapped. Also, this game is what we recommend for only audiences 10+.

Who cares if Peach gets kidnapped or has an annoying voice? Peach getting kidnapped lead to this epic game! - HeavyDonkeyKong

9 Super Mario World

This game is old, yet it is still fun to play but better to play in the 2nd Millennium. The hacks of the game are much better.

10 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild


The Contenders

11 Super Mario Bros. 3
12 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Awesome game. Play it!

Get this to the top 10. Super Mario Sunshine should be 11 and this should be somewhere in the top 10.

Reggie Fils Aime said that it was the best game ever, and I agree!

Best game on the Wii! Heck, it is my favorite game for the Wii U too!

13 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

This is the best non-crossover game ever! Man, this game is just perfect! Why? The graphics, the music, the generation era, the platform, the story, the gameplay, etc...

14 Super Mario Galaxy 2

Manages to feel like Mario Galaxy without repeating too many gimmicks. - Garythesnail

15 Super Smash Bros.


Hands down, this is the best video game ever!

16 Super Paper Mario
17 Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

I absolutely love both Mario and Zelda and all the classics in both series, but this is my favorite game of all time.

18 The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

This game is nowhere near as good as Skyward Sword what are you talking about?

So much BETTER than Skyward Sword.

If it is so much better than SS, then why does SS have almost 10 times as many votes?

19 Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
20 Mario Kart 64
21 Super Mario Kart
22 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

HEY! It's already on the list! So it really has 1.2% of the votes!

23 Mario Kart: Super Circuit
24 Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars

I am on par with Super Paper Mario whether this is the top 1 true best RPG in the world. Y'see, this game gets 100/100 stars on a scale of 1/100 to 100/100 stars. I especially love the graphics, music, the Geno Whirl and etc... and Princess Peach was not so annoying in this game! This game deserves at least the top 4 spot.
