Top 10 Nintendo Games of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Donkey Kong Country Returns

It has awesome level design chanlegeing difficulty and loads of content

22 Animal Crossing

By far, my favorite Nintendo game series! The only installment that has let me down was Amiibo Festival, and that was a spinoff of the actual series. Of course, this series has its flaws (all series do) but overall, an amazing series! Definitely would recommend to everyone.

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.

23 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.

Good game, not the best but deserves at least top 15 or 20 - AngryHimouto

24 Conker's Bad Fur Day

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

25 Star Fox 64

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!

26 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

27 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This game is the best game Nintendo has created. Before this, I didn't play much Legend of Zelda. Of course, I played the original, and I also played a bit of Wind Waker and Ocarina of Time, but other than that, I hadn't played it much. However, my father got me this game and told me he loved the old Legend of Zelda, and wanted to play this one to see if it was any good, and if I would like it. Then I got that first opening shot - one of the most gorgeous things I have ever seen. The graphics were absolutely beautiful, and the gameplay was awesome! I loved exploring Hyrule at my own pace and never having someone bug me to do the next quest. I adored collecting swords and shields and armor of all sorts of kinds. It was one of the best games I have ever played - no - the best game I've ever played. The story was amazing, character development was great, everything was awesome! 10/10

There is no discussion, this is the best game nintendo has made. If you have ever played it through, you will understand. Although I may admit that I like some of their other games more due to nostalgia, I can't help but applaud the effort and time that they put into making this game so much better than any other nintendo game created to this point.

This game shines with so much polish and attention to detail its amazing. I have played my fair share of Zelda games and none have stood out like this one. I'm on my fifth playthrough already and I'm still not tired of it. Over all It is a amazing experience and my favorite game of all time.

A masterpiece, hoping to see it in the top ten soon - Tisme_draGON

28 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.

Thinking of picking this game up looks good - AngryHimouto

30 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!

31 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!

32 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.

Easily not only my favorite Nintendo game of all time, but my favorite video game of all time.

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

33 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

If this thing is not first on the list the next second, I am going to BARF! Splatoon is so good that it may as well come from game heaven.

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

34 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.

35 Kirby & the Amazing Mirror

This was the best kirby game ever

36 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

37 Mario Kart 8

It is the best Mario Kart. A lot of characters and cool stages.

Equal in fun to MKDS, but cooler

2nd best mk
double dash will always be the best

38 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

39 Xenoblade Chronicles

This game has an excellent world, captivating story, great gameply, natural character development, and perfect music. This is my favorite game of all time, and many share my opinion. Everybody should have the chance to play this game, and if you do, you shiuld NOT sit it out.

Are you serious?! This game is INSANE. a Masterpiece


40 Mario Kart Wii

I expected such a great game to be higher on the list - Ajkloth
