Best Video Game Ports

These are the best games that have been ported and remade from one console to another.

The Top Ten

1 Super Mario 64 DS

Super Mario 64 DS is indeed a good game but I wouldn't go so far as saying it's better then the original. - egnomac

This game is pretty good for a DS remake of a N64 game. - B1ueNew

Better on 3DS where you have circle pad - darthvadern

This game was amazing. As a child, I got sad when I beat it. - Pokemonfan10

2 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

Definitely, The best handheld Zelda game. - B1ueNew

It's even better then the original!

Yes. This one rules! - LightningStrike

Hell yeah boii - MSA33

3 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

Great remake and it also fixes many of the issues with the original on the gamecube including an upgrade sail allowing you to move more quickly at sea and also when using the upgrade sail the wind will automatically go in the direction your going meaning you longer have to keep bringing out the wind waker every time you need to move your boat in the direction you want to go, another change is when doing the triforce piece quest you'll occasionally get a triforce piece instead of a map leading to them reducing the amount of rupees you'll have to give to Tingle not to mention reducing the amount of time of having to go all over the sea just to find them. - egnomac

Another good Zelda port. This game is one of my favorite Zelda games as well as one of my favorite Wii U games. - B1ueNew

Best Zelda remake ever - MarioBros11

4 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

It fixed most of the problems the original had, and made it better. - RadioHead03

Fixes most of the problems the original had. Sure the roster is still bad, but, overall it's great with the new battle mode - darthvadern

No, not even close. It not only kept the bad characters, but out of the six new characters added, only two are really interesting. We still lack Birdo, Wiggler, Funky Kong, etc. - darthvadern

My favorite change is the improved battle mode. - EvanWellens

Good game, I played it at my cousin's house once and I really liked it. - B1ueNew

5 Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

Love the movement of it and it doesn't honk when playing - Sammycandy

One of the greatest games ever. So entertaining. - B1ueNew

Definitely not the best RE 4 port. Probably the weakest. But hey, that's just my opinion. And I respect yours. - RobertWisdom

But u can already play dis on wii via backwards compatibility - myusernameisthis

6 Chrono Trigger DS

One of the few that manages to improve on the already almost perfect game.

Oh yes! This one is great. - EvanTheNerd

Wait, Chrono Trigger GOT a port? I had no idea people still remembered it nowadays. Regardless, it's one of the VERY few good non-Zelda RPGs, so it gets my vote.

7 Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

This game is great. A good trilogy. - B1ueNew

I wish I had a console, specifically a PS4. - TriggerTrashKid

I’m so glad I got to experience these games on PS4 since I don’t own a PS3. These games are masterpieces. - RadioHead03

8 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

This game is good, especially the remastered version.

This game was free for PS plus on PS4 so I downloaded and played it and I loved it. The multiplayer is pretty good and the campaign is amazing. Such a good game. - B1ueNew

I have it

9 Borderlands: The Handsome Collection

So There's been a new official Borderlands 3 trailer revealed and I'm actually hyped for it. We finally get a sequel to it. Either way this game is very good, Both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel are good games, I enjoy this game for my PS4. - B1ueNew

10 Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

A good handheld port of a Wii game on the 3DS. - B1ueNew

I feel like the 3DS downgraded it - MarioBros11

The Contenders

11 Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3

It's even better than the original. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

12 Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2

This game's awesome. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

It's great being able to take such an amazing game on the go, although this game Is kind of obsolete now since you can get the game on the 3DS eshop for 8 dollars. - EvanWellens

13 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

So much better graphics - MarioBros11

14 Super Mario Advance

It's much more fun than the original. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Lots of new content! - Maddox121

15 Metroid: Zero Mission

Not as much of a port as it is a remake - EvanWellens

If you don't like female empowerment and galactic action (at the same time), you must be high. So shut the hell up, Seth White (aka in 2016) and other butthurt, hypocritical trollers like Raul Padilla and Chase Williamson (aka the guy that hates AniMat for giving Sony Pictures Animation films his Seal of Garbage, which is one of the dumb reasons you have to harass him, so nobody would care if you were dead).

16 Burnout Paradise Remastered

The graphics look mostly the same though - MSA33

It's raining Bleach - TriggerTrashKid

Even though it’s EA, this game is a pretty good port. All the DLC is included, and it’s only $20. - RadioHead03

17 Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Mobile

No modding... No good. - Maddox121

18 New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

They didn't change much - DrayTopTens

This is good. But unoriginal. - TriggerTrashKid

Most unoriginal you can get - MarioBros11

Who cares if it's 'unoriginal'? a game doesn't need originality to be good! Also it' for people who DIDN'T own a wii u - myusernameisthis

19 Batman: Arkham Knight
20 Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
21 Grand Theft Auto V
22 Mario Kart 7

This isn't a port - DrayTopTens

It was the beginning of an era for mario kart

not a port - Pokemonfan10

Good game. - Userguy44

23 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
24 Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

It's nightmare in dreamland should be first

25 Super Mario All-Stars
26 Batman: Return to Arkham
27 Sonic Unleashed


Its great on xbox 360 and ps3 but the wii version werehog controls on it sucks sorry dimps

28 PaRappa the Rapper

Includes everything from the PS1 version, as well as 8 remixed songs (half of them for Stage 1), a 4 Player Ad Hoc mode, Widescreen support, and it even fixes the timing issues of the original version. Everything here is perfect, while the original is still loads of fun to play, I think this port destroys the original. Not to mention that you can play it anytime, and anywhere, is always a plus in my opinion. This is easily the definitive version of PaRappa 1, and I highly recommend anyone to get this game, its available on Ps Vita as well, so that’s another plus.

29 Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D

You're pretty good!

i like it - Deadbydawn

30 The Orange Box
31 Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
32 Halo 2: Anniversary
33 Fran Bow
34 Halo: The Master Chief Collection
35 Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2X
36 Rare Replay
37 Dark Souls Trilogy
38 Shadow of the Colossus (PS4)

Hell yeah. This is a masterpiece. - TriggerTrashKid

39 Metroid: Samus Returns
40 Another Metroid 2 Remake
41 Dark Souls Remastered
42 Spyro Reignited Trilogy
43 Lego Star Wars Complete Saga

TEAR. RIB. BULL. Just bad. - MarioBros11

44 Little Nightmares
45 Minecraft: Pocket Edition

Great game but I like it better on a console - MarioBros11

Lol. - Userguy44

46 Forza Motorsport 6: Apex
47 Star Fox 64 3D
48 Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

Definitely a classic brought back on a better, higher defenition system. The pss makes it so much easier to complete the pokedex!

49 Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3ds

Not really a good port. - RadioHead03

It doesn't seem as good but it seems good for a handheld that is almost a decade old. - B1ueNew
