My favorite Kirby games are Canvas Curse and Triple Deluxe. Kirby's Adventure and Dream Land 2 were all right.

I got Amazing Mirror (by accident) and I haven't tried it yet; but I don't really like having to figure out where to go in games.

Kirby Super Star Ultra is basically the only Kirby game anyone needs.

Other than that, I enjoy Adventure and its remake. I liked Mass Attack's many mini games too, a bit more than the main adventure itself. Dream Land 3 is also a good one.

Kirby Super Star saw most of my playtime as a kid, especailly with 2 players, though the CPU makes for a surprisingly good helper too. So Kirby Super Star Ultra is definitely the quintissential Kirby game for me.

Never played it but I'll download it when it comes to Wii U VC.

I bought Super Star Ultra but still haven't really gotten around to playing it for more than a few minutes. I've completed the single player mode for Kirby Triple Deluxe though, and I got around to completing Kirby's Dream Land (maybe twice if memory serves). I haven't gotten around to playing any of Kirby's older games, though I have most of them as VC titles. I'm still bummed that I was never able to track down a sealed copy of Kirby Mass Attack or Kirby's Adventure Wii in Australia (both of which were issued a very limited print). All of the "new" copies I had seen were in horrible condition and I wasn't willing to pay $60 for games with a broken seal and dents in the packaging due to passers-by poking and prodding them. That's not what "new" means, but try telling that to the stupid retailers here.

Same thing kept me from buying most of Kirby's DS-era games, really (even the ones at bargain-bin prices).

I probably would have loved Kirby's Adventure Wii for its frantic 4-player local multiplayer (which may be a first for the series?).

It's hard to go wrong with a Kirby game. I still love Kirby's Adventure - it got so much so very right. Nightmare in Dreamland was a pleasant remake. Similarly, Kirby Super Star was epic, bursting to the gills with jokes, references, etc. (pay attention to the, music in the mine cart sections of the Great Cave Offensive - it may be familiar), and SSD made it even more more. Kirby 3 was great aesthetic, and had some of the most terrifying bosses. Honorable mention also goes to Kirby's Epic Yarn, for its bold defiance of so many platformer conventions, without losing what a platformer means.

In short, though, nearly any Kirby game is a quality choice. Even Kirby's Air Ride, bizarre as it was, did a lot of really interesting things. And definitely don't forget the original - it's quite a bit different from modern Kirby, but still one of the best Game Boy games out there.

I found it slow and boring to play. It really was the worst Kirby game from the 90s.

@Bass_X0: I would not disagree with the slow, and can understand the boring. You'll note that I did not say anything else about Kirby 3 besides those two points.

As for "worst Kirby game from the 90s", someone with an A can still be the bottom of the class. Nearly every Kirby game is gold (especially in the 90s), so the occasional silver is subjectively a step down, even if it's objectively good.

I should also note that I just picked up Dream Land 2, since it's on sale. First impressions, it looks really nice, feels like a "full" game, has great bosses, and has Kirby's trademark copy abilities, BUT I am not a fan of the animal buddies so far. None of them are as well balanced as Kirby himself, and while one might be reall great for one area, it's terrible for everyplace else (and you're stuck with it until it gets killed or you find another one). I feel like they would have been a better idea had there only been one per world, with that world's levels making the best use of their unique play styles.

Rainbow Curse was a terrific and unique game on a home console. I really enjoyed it. Playing multiplayer with my young nephews and beating Kirby's Adventure and Epic Yarn on Wii was a fun time, but not something i'd be stoked to do on my own. I really need to get around to playing Super Star, i played the gameboy original, Dreamcourse, Blockball and SNES Kirby 3 games a bit as a kid but could never get all that into them. Triple Deluxe was something i couldn't get into, but it did seem to be very well made, i got it for my nephews who loved it and gave it a go myself but it just felt too easy. Squeak Squad was also pretty meh from what i played. Mass Attack seemed cool, and i'd like to play that one more in the future. I've tried a lot but they just aren't difficult enough for me to typically want to play them on single player.

@ProfAllister: Yeah, it was better than many other SNES platformers but as far as Kirby platform games went in the 90s, the other games were better IMO. Kirby's Dream Land on Game Boy may be short and simple but it was far more entertaining to play.

I think that was the main idea, they're overly specialized to certain terrains, so while they may be a great help in some levels they can also be a hindrance. But you may need them to reach special areas, it's kinda like a puzzle.

Combining them with the copy abilities can also be fun. You may get something completely useless or completley broken.

@Meowpheel: For what it's worth, Kirby's Dream Land 3 really took the animal friends to the next level. Of course, some of the trickier challenges specifically required you to bring an animal friend particularly unsuited to the environment, so there's that...

Finished up Dream Land 2 (well, the basic ending anyhow).

I liked the amount of content, and each world's levels felt distinct, which was nice. Also, I actually quite liked the boss fights, which were surprisingly chsllenging.

As for the animal buddies, I'm mixed. I actually ended up quite liking the Owl, the Hamster was alright, but I hated that #&▲▼%@ fish! (okay, I liked it's twist on the spark ability, but that's it). Also, regardless of which animal buddy I was with, I could never get passed any of the auto scroll areas with them (I had to do those solo, and died every time I was with an animal buddy).

@RR529: I actually 100% Dream Land 2 about a month ago. I liked it quite a bit, but I personally hated how there's an enemy that got rid of the animal buddy in one hit.

I've played through Dream Land 2 without finding all those secret items to get the true ending. It was ok. I think it would have been better if it were on the Gameboy color.

I'm at 89% completion for Triple Deluxe and looking forward to Planet Robobot a lot.

I've played Dream Land 3, Kirby 64, Air Ride, Return to Dream Land, Planet Robobot since I made the post, but my ranking stays the same (1. Super Star Ultra 2. Amazing Mirror 3. Triple Deluxe)
Planet Robobot was great but I liked TD quite a bit more.

Yeah, PR was fun, but TD might have better boss fights. I can't decide which are my favorites (of the ones I've played), but I put Kirby's Adventure and Dream Land 2 last.

My favourite is Kirby's Adventure.

Now that I've played Triple Deluxe, Planet Robobot, and Rainbow Curse, my answer is still largely the same as before. Triple Deluxe and Planet Robobot were pretty much the good followups to Return to Dream Land that I was expecting. Rainbow Curse is great; it has the same gameplay base as Canvas Curse, but its sound- and level design make it feel more like a successor to Mass Attack. The graphics are beautiful, although I can't look at them on a vibrant HD screen and see where I'm tapping at the same time. If the game weren't so short, I'd probably consider it the best in the series.
