Top 10 Nintendo Games of All TimeOreanta
The Top Ten
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.
And another thing, WHY THE HELL IS GUITAR HERO ON THIS LIST?!?!
GUITAR HERO IS MADE BY Activision NOT Nintendo!
To predictable... Before you yell at me, I played this game 100% but really...
Even though this game was very revolutionary for the Zelda series, I don't believe that it quite deserves the number one spot. There is plenty of things wrong with the game like not seeing enemies and other things that needed to be worked out in a three dimensional game. This issue was fixed in later Zelda games that had equally good storylines and gameplay. This game may have blowed everyone away when came out, but that it's the best.
I think this game is the best game in the world. It has had such an impact on modern gaming, and is definitely the Jewel in the franchise. I remember before finding this game, I never really understood the Zelda games as they were too confusing and I often got lost. But one day, while looking through the demos in Super Smash Bros: Brawl, I saw the difference in this game and played it. Ever since, this has been no doubt my favorite game.
Breath of the wild is good to but this thoughV 78 Comments
I'm not going to try to state it as a fact by being like "ITS BEST GAME. SCREW OoT! " I'm going to state it more as my own opinion. And I speak for all of the Smash series on this one, not just Brawl. I've played Nintendo games since I was in diapers, and without a doubt the Super Smash Brothers series contains my favorite games of all time. I remember when I got my first Smash game, Brawl. I was a child, so if course I thought I was amazing. Until I found about the Smash community and the competitive scene. Right now I play every Smash game, from 64 to Smash 4. I highly doubt I will be stopping anytime soon with all of the fun I have while playing them. So without a doubt, Super Smash Bros, all four (or five with 3ds) games, are my favorite games ever.
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. - dragonfly99
DEFINITELY one of the best games ever by Nintendo. Very good characters and single player level is awesome supposed to be first placeV 51 Comments
Why is SMB3 the only mainstream Super Mario game/cartoon with the Frog Suit?! Why does it even debut there instead of Mario Land?!
All the levels and secrets in this game are breathtaking. - Oreanta
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!
So many sweet hidden secrets and great new items and glitches - YOSHIA2121V 11 Comments
Majora's Mask is the most darkest and complex Zelda game, if not, any game by Nintendo that is "suitable for all ages". Though Majora lacked the amount of dungeons that Ocarina had, it made up for it with its amazing plot as a sequel to an equally great game. It was sinister enough with the impending apocalypse of the nightmare fuel that is a grotesque moon, but the fact that, after every attempt to help someone from their pains and misfortunes, it all resets after every 3 days, all to save the world from an equally emotionally strained kid wearing a cursed mask. The game definitely made my childhood great and memorable.
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.
A dark emotional tale with storytelling, character development, and world building that is matched by few works of fiction to date. Lots of side quests and collectibles with one of the series's most vivid worlds. Much more in-depth, varied combat and puzzle solving all thanks to the masks, one of the greatest features when coupled with other classic Zelda items.
You will met with a terrible fate if you vote super mario bros 3V 17 Comments
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.
Should be number 1. This game brought Mario into 3D and made the n64 a success. Mario number 1!V 15 Comments
I really loved this game!
This game is awesome and once you get far enough in the game you'll hear songs from ocarina of time
An incredible game that changed my life I honestly love it so much... no Zelda can top it.
Crazy Good, great gameplayV 18 Comments
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
First game ever. The nostalgia is so big.V 26 Comments
Unlike the other Super Smash Bros games, Melee has the aspect of being both a party game and an extremely competitive multiplayer game. There is no other game that has such a unique community and history behind it. I suggest watching "The Smash Brothers" documentary on YouTube if you don't know much about Melee. Best documentary I have ever watched. Sure, Wii U and Brawl has more characters, stages, etc but that isn't what makes Melee so unique and enjoyable. The fact that it's so simplistic on the outside is what makes it so fun for anyone. The more you play the more you realize how complex this game really is. Melee is the best mistake Nintendo has ever made. I doubt they could ever recreate what Melee has become.
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.
Best Nintendo game ever made.V 8 Comments
This is by far THE best Smash Bros. In terms of gameplay it is the most fair and has probably the most balanced character roster out of all the games in the series as well as the largest. It should definitely be above Brawl.
How is this not like number three? This is the best of the smash bros franchise! It's amazing characters graphics and gameplay.
Great Game. Great Graphics. A bunch of cool new characters and stages. Super Smash Bros FOR THE WIN!
So fun and addictingV 18 Comments
This is an absolute masterpiece. If you own a Wii, GET THIS NOW! Whilst I enjoyed the original Galaxy, this is much better, why is it lower on the list. The controls work well and the level design is amazing. It is also much easier to navigate than the original game and has 242 stars. I have completed this game completely and the amount of extra content is astounding. And the graphics are good, despite being on the not-very-powerful Wii. It is a shame that the new 3D Mario games aren't as innovative as this gem I really hope for Galaxy 3 soon!
Best game of all time. Amazing use of motion controls and so much post game content you'll be soaring through the galaxies for years to come.
Should be number 10. Better than A Link to the Past and so on.
Best soundtrack of any game, amazing gameplay, takes ages, even when you 'complete' the game there is still loads to do.V 7 Comments
The game who brought up the best character ever who is Yoshi deserves one spot
I love this game! It is my favorite Mario game of all time! I just love playing as Mario and jumping on my good pal Yoshi.
This is better than almost all of those Zelda games
Bland compared to super Mario world 2.V 8 Comments
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. - Cheesecakepony10
The best Zelda game (until Zelda Wii U, hopefully). It easily has the best art style of any Zelda game, which has withstood the test of time. Yes, the sailing may be tedious, but it gives the world a vast, and epic feeling to it. The gameplay is still as fun as ever. This game should be #1
The wind waker is an unique Zelda experience that is unlike any other. The graphics are beautiful and the story is just as entertaining as Ocarina of Time.
The art style and the environments are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. The cozy and warm mornings and the enchanting glow of the nights look amazing, especially in the HD version.V 11 Comments
If this one's referring to Super Paper Mario, or if it's just referring to whatever game the reader played, it deserves to be higher. The Paper Mario series is criminally underrated, and Sticker Star did nothing to fix that, but the first three are simply mind-blowing, with creativity, music, especially style, and all. Nintendo really needs to make a Paper Mario game that can survive the death of the Wii U, but is more play-alluring than Color Splash, a final note to the fans upset with Sticker Star.
I loved this game and played it the whole way through, it's upsetting that the series didn't get very much recognition, I agree that it should've been top 10, the game was time and money very well spent.
The greatest RPG game ever. So much better than ocarina of time or any legend of zelda game. - babbott15
How is this not number 1!?!?!? It has a confusing, but sad story, great villains, fun characters, colorful graphics, and best of all, perfect ending!V 8 Comments
This game resuscitated a dying industry and gave rise to the Nintendo empire. This deserves to be number one or at least in the top five. At least Mario World and Mario 3 are higher on the list. - dlbk03
The one that started them all, great game for everyone love it
This should be number 1 this game saved the video game industry.
Just because this game saved the industry doesn't mean its good enough to be on number 15V 4 Comments
I like blue more but Great game as I have both the American and Japanese version!
No, not just Red! Red AND Blue! Blue version is better than Red, in my opinion.
The game that started it all, is still one of the best Pokemon games if not THE BEST
It is the best game ever!V 12 Comments
Face it, all 4 the smash bros games are perfection!
Ohh... these bring back memories! - OreantaV 2 Comments
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!
If you think that just the game alone, in and of itself, is amazing, try playing all of the hacks along with it...HOO, boy... - xandermartin98V 13 Comments
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. - Oreanta
Who doesn't love the RPG elements combined with a superb platformer? - Oreanta
I love all the chapters especially the toad that says he is playing paper MarioV 7 Comments
No doubt this is one of Link's most memorable adventures. - Oreanta
I havn't played ocarina enough to know if its better than this - moose4life19
This, Super Metroid, a pokemon game, and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
My very first Zelda that I continue to loveV 3 Comments
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.
Disappointing ending, but still one of the best games!V 8 Comments
