Thank you for recognising this game as the underrated gem that it is. Whilst I'll admit the story hasn't held up spectacularly well the gameplay and sheer fun factor to be had more than makes up for it. - SuperSonic17

2 Metroid: Other M
3 Crash Twinsanity

This was a fun game. I had it as a kid and enjoyed it quite well. - cjWriter1997

This is the worst fighting game? I not want it for the worst! this is one of the games so bad it's good!

5 PaRappa the Rapper 2
6 Paper Mario: Color Splash
7 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

People hate Skyward Sword? I mean it definitely isn't the best Zelda but it's still good. - cjWriter1997

8 Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

It really isn't a franchise since there is only one game. - cjWriter1997

10 Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

The Contenders

11 Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
