Top 10 Nintendo Games of All Time

21 Donkey Kong Country Returns Donkey Kong Country Returns
22 Animal Crossing Animal 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.

I love all the Animal Crossing games. They make me feel like a kid again.

I hate Animal Crossing because it sells so much more than franchises that actually deserve more sales.

23 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword The 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.

Disappointing ending, but still one of the best games!

This is my favorite game ever. It's so funny!

25 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

This game deserves to be top 4. Seriously, this is one of the best games ever!

How is this not in the top 10 when Brawl is?

A thousand times the game super Mario world 1 will ever be

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!

27 Splatoon Splatoon

Why is this so low on the list. This is one of the best Nintendo games it also a not a sequel or prequel which is rare for Nintendo plus most of the games on the list I haven't even heard of

This game is awesome! Why is it so low on the list?

BEST GAME EVER! Lead up to my favourite Anime, Squid Girl!. I usually hate shooters and I prefer simulation (like Animal Crossing) or action (like Super Mario). I wake up at 6:30 and run downstairs and begin playing, straight away! People who say this game is for babies, go get a 3DS are retarded.

28 Mario Kart: Double Dash Mario Kart: Double Dash

How is this better than Mario Kart 64 if you have to listen to Princess Peach's voice & Princess Daisy's voice?!

I can;t believe smash brothers brawl got ahead of this when all you do is fight.

This is way better than Mario kart 64. Every n64 game ever made is overrated because they were the first 3D games Nintendo ever made. The GameCube was a big step up

29 Banjo-Kazooie Banjo-Kazooie

Has funny puns grate bosses greate music but not so greate gameplay but its fun

30 Kid Icarus: Uprising Kid 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!?!

The characters are hilarious and have so much personality. I've played the game twice now and both times I played them I had a great, fun, and entertaining experiences. Voice acting in this game is great too.

An expansive, funny and addictive shooter with brilliant voice acting, mesmerizing music and a punishing difficulty system. One of the top games in existence.

One of my favorite games, with an online battle mode like this is there any way to get bored?

31 Super Mario 3D World Super Mario 3D World

I will be playing this game to 100% completion all on my own. Wish me luck, I won't be back anytime soon.

Princess Daisy should've replaced the pathetic, bad-tempered Princess Peach.

Daisy Shall Not Replace Peach You Idiot

Best game ever!

32 Kirby's Epic Yarn Kirby's Epic Yarn

When is there going to be a Diddy Kong Yarn actually by Good Feel & Nintendo?

This game is so fun and is relaxing! It's great!

33 Metroid Prime # Metroid 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.

Why is this number 38. Prime is better than this. It's better than most of the stuff above it. At least top 5. It's not voted for because when people scroll down on the website they only see and vote for what is already in the top ten. It's unfair.

Don't insult Zelda. Zelda is better than Metroid.

It effortlessly creates tense and spooky atmosphere and with some of the best level design in gaming and phenomenal music,This is the best nintendo game ever.OOT has nothing on this masterclass. - Lord28

34 Kirby & the Amazing Mirror Kirby & the Amazing Mirror

This was the best kirby game ever

35 Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

The wonderful storyline in this game is awe-inspiring. The battle sequences are a wonderful touch. - Oreanta

This game has an amazing story line, probably one of the best strategic games out there.

ZOMG hours of my life well spent finishing this 4 times - Gunti

36 Pokemon Emerald

How is this so low? It introduced great new Pokemon, double battles, battle frontier, and some of the best legendaries to date. ( Deoxys and Rayquaza) Without this game, the series would not be as it is today.

37 Donkey Kong Donkey Kong
38 Super Smash Bros for 3DS Super Smash Bros for 3DS V 1 Comment
39 Super Mario Sunshine Super Mario Sunshine

It is a very hard game but it has a lot of gameplay. Its such a good game they should make a sequel.

It is just so fun but where did all the brown poop come from?

It's fun and challenging and has a great storyline.

Best Mario game EVER
