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 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

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

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

Waste Of Mario Kart For Nintendo Switch

Finally, a battle mode.

4 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

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

Naughty Dog makes such masterpieces. Love Uncharted - codgtamk34

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 Grand Theft Auto V
13 Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2

This game's awesome. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

14 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

So much better graphics - MarioBros11

15 Super Mario Advance

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

Lots of new content! - Maddox121

16 Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land
17 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

18 New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

This is good. But unoriginal. - TriggerTrashKid

Most unoriginal you can get - MarioBros11

For people who didn't get to play the u version. You get to play as Toadette/Peachette and player 1 can choose any character to play as so you don't have to be Mario.

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 Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Mobile

No modding... No good. - Maddox121

20 Metroid: Zero Mission

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).

21 Batman: Arkham Knight
22 Batman: Return to Arkham
23 Super Mario All-Stars
24 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
25 Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
26 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.

27 The Orange Box
28 Mario Kart 7

Good game. - Userguy44

29 Halo 2: Anniversary
30 Halo: The Master Chief Collection
31 Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2X
32 Rare Replay
33 Dark Souls Trilogy
34 Shadow of the Colossus (PS4)

Hell yeah. This is a masterpiece. - TriggerTrashKid

35 Metroid: Samus Returns
36 Another Metroid 2 Remake
37 Dark Souls Remastered
38 Sonic Unleashed


39 Spyro Reignited Trilogy
40 Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D

41 Lego Star Wars Complete Saga

TEAR. RIB. BULL. Just bad. - MarioBros11

42 Little Nightmares
43 Minecraft: Pocket Edition

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

Lol. - Userguy44

44 Forza Motorsport 6: Apex
45 Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
46 Star Fox 64 3D
47 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!

48 Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3ds

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

49 Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga (DS)
50 LEGO Star Wars III The Clone Wars (3DS)

The Wii version was AMAZING! - MarioBros11
