Top 25 Greatest Nintendo Games

#7 Super Mario 64 (N64)

Gamers rushing to buy the Nintendo 64 also wanted its must have launch game, Super Mario 64. Mario's first fully 3-D outing is a stupendous romp through the Mushroom Kingdom, complete with bright and cheery visuals, great music and plenty of missions, from racing a penguin to tossing a giant Bomb Omb. It's still a magical adventure, and one we highly recommend.

    melee and d/p do deserve to be up there but ithink they should add sonic adventure battle 2 and mario kart dbl dash

    NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!How could they say that?SMB3 Was a waste of nintendos pocket change(About 250k+)!And what was really wrong was the torture of hearing they got an import........Nuuuuuu.............But there is only 13 more days in the states till march ninth,and then we can get our blessed Pre-Orders.Regardless,they needed Smash brothers Melee up there.My own revisions would have peen:11.Pokemon D/P,and 7.SSBM.

    Super Marios Bros. 3 was a waste of money to me. I got it on the virtual console and i regret it i really should have got sonic 3 instead.

    Absolutely agree! SMB3 (the only mario game) rules in nintendo's heaven.

    Ocarina of Time should be much higher. Also, most of the games that you are picking (Mario Kart DS) were just remakes of the original.

    #1 was definitely the right choice. However, I struggle to see how at least one of the two NES Zelda games didn't make the list. There was little representation for sports franchises. Tecmo Super Bowl was every football lover's dream game for it's time, and still holds appeal. And, in terms of pure fun, the Paper Mario franchise is right up there with the best, though I supose "Superstar Saga" provides some representation for that style.

    smash brothers brawl has not hit the u.s but smb3 is hard to disagree with. any game that has mario or zelda is hard to debate about.

    Pokemon Diamond/Pearl should've totally been on that list. It's proof that the franchise has evolved past it's "little kid" demeanor with how detailed, deep and just overall addicting it is. IMO one of the top 5 games of 2007 easily, and definitely top 25 of all time in regards to Nintendo.

    All these games are great Nintendo games worthy of top 25 status. But, I was quite surprised about the #1 pick. Sure, SMB3 was a great title that deserves most of the acclaim that it has gotten over it's many years of successes and countless, slightly altered rehashes released on numerous systems. But did we all forget about what many will agree is the king, or should I say "princess" of Nintendo games for all time? Yes, great gamers, I am talking about "The Legend of Zelda" for the NES. This game, too has has seen it's share of many a remake in different forms and packages, but the truth is that this one game alone has raked in more than it's fair share of "rupees" and players on the Nintendo side. Let's go back in time a bit and remember how we sat in front of our TV's for many an hour on end, enraptured by the story and engaging music that this game produced. Or maybe think back to the craziness that swept through stores as people tried to find the game in their favorite store only to be let down when it wasn't there. That, my firends, is the finest game in Nintendo's arsenal.
