Best Yoshi Games


The Top Ten

1 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Super Mario World is better but unless its considered a Yoshi game this is the best. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Since the day this came out it was destined to be a classic. Its gameplay is executed perfectly and looking for the collectibles is always good fun. - Entranced98

Hands down best Yoshi game. The Baby Bowser fight was epic and the music was catchy

Definitely ‘THE PENTICAL’ of a Yoshi game. Whether it's just his or where he is part of a cast of other characters, like ‘Super Mario World’. Before this game cane along, ‘Mario World’ was the G.O.A.T..Now, I don't think there will ever be a great Yoshi game like ‘Yoshi's Island’ again. His 1st true game & the G.O.A.T., period.

2 Yoshi's Woolly World

Its gameplay is rather reminiscent of Yoshi's Island, so fans of that game are sure to love this one! It may be a bit easier but the smooth controls, amazing graphical style and beautiful music make this well worth playing. - Entranced98

It was pretty great and I might get a Switch considering a lot of games I would like are coming to it being Yoshi's Crafted World, Luigi's Mansion 3 and Metroid Prime 4. - iliekpiez

So cute and awesome

I love it! My bro loves it too.

3 Yoshi's Island DS

I had this Yoshi game since I was a kid. The plot is great, and Yoshi is EPIC!

This is an incredible game introducing so much new stuff - YOSHIA2121

Ikereviews, I saw how poorly received most of your YouTube vidoes are (no joke, he's a troller) and this game should not be top 1, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island should (after all, it is the most acclaimed game in the Yoshi franchise and xandermartin98 put SMW2: YI as top 1). Why? The human Star Children (especially Baby Peach) due to their annoying voices and such, the differing soundtrack compared to the original, the visuals are quite bland (though colorful), and it's just not the original! Yes, a "Best Yoshi Games" list is necessary, but come on, Ikereviews!


4 Yoshi's Story

I played this all the time when I was younger - Spongehouse

This game is one of my favorite N64 and best video games of all time in my opinion. - spodermanfan1000

5 Yoshi's New Island

This game sucks. - kdoraisamy23


6 Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2

The main reason why this favorable Super Mario World remake is a bit worse than its original version for the SNES (that would be Super Mario World) is because of Princess Peach's dainty, annoying voice (it even debuted the infamous "HELP! " as if she asks Mario to help her defenseless, though strong in other games self) and the reward after getting all Dragon Coins in this game? YOU GET PRINCESS PEACH COINS! Oh, well, it's actually creative and quite fun.

Super Mario World for the SNES deserves a 9.5/10
Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World deserves a 9/10.

Got any replies, HeavyDonkeyKong and Ikereviews?

Amazing and beautiful game. Just as good as the SNES original that this is made from. - HeavyDonkeyKong

That's not a Yoshi Game!

This is a Mario game

7 Yoshi Touch and Go

Good fun in short bursts. - Entranced98

8 Yoshi Topsy-Turvy
9 Yoshi's Cookie

Yoshi doesn't even help or contribute to the story. - kdoraisamy23

10 Super Mario World

How on earth is this only 9 on the list - VideoGamefan5

This isn't a Yoshi game! It's a Mario game with Yoshi in! But it doesn't count!

If it were because it is a Classic Mario game, I would be extremely furious. ikereviews my ass. He does not know what good/bad Yoshi games are. Super Mario World duology for the win! Yoshi's New Island FTL!

The Contenders

11 Yoshi's Island
12 Tetris Attack
13 Yoshi (Nes)

Has nothing to do with Yoshi. - kdoraisamy23

-kdoraisamy23 What are you even talking about? He’s literally on the cover and the whole point of the game is to hatch the Yoshis from their eggs. Also, Yoshi does contribute in Yoshi’s Cookie (he helps Mario out at times, especially in the SNES) and Yoshi’s Safari (he’s Mario’s mount throughout the gameplay).

14 Super Mario 64 DS

Light years better than the original, and on a portable, what's even the point to play the original, don't even try to say it has worse graphics because that's factually incorrect, seriously if this was in HD it wouldn't look out of place on the switch, same with every single 3d Mario game except for the original Mario 64. If you try to say that it has worse controls you are again incorrect. I am surprised that almost everyone consider this as one of the worst because honestly it's one of the best. Don't at me! Later.

15 Yoshi's Safari

Yoshi is no help to the story. Just a dumb, pointless character. - kdoraisamy23

16 Poochy & Yoshi Woolly World
17 Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3

This and Pokemon Blue Rescue team took up 2 years of my childhood - Tyoshi

18 Yoshi's Crafted World
19 New Super Mario Bros. Wii

This game has yoshi in it but no mainly about him. - spodermanfan1000
