In no particular order, just picking things off the top of my head (not all are exactly "Nintendo" but whatever)

Pikmin, Super Monkey Ball, Paper Mario, Viewtiful Joe, Smash Bros., Mario Kart, Mario Sports games, 3D Mario games, F-Zero, and maaaybe Wario Ware or Mario Party.

I've been playing a lot of Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball 2 lately...and it makes me said knowing that it went WAY downhill after the Wii version was released. I want Super Monkey Ball 3...or 10..or whatever it is now...with classic gameplay using ANALOG sticks. Having an alternative mode where you tilt the gamepad to control the monkey would be fun, but I don't want that to be the PRIMARY gameplay. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO AMUSEMENT VISION THEY MADE GREAT GAMES WAAAH. Okay complaining over.

I've never played a Pokemon game, so I probably should. And I haven't had much experience with Metroid/Zelda/Donkey Kong games, so maybe I'll get Wind Waker HD and DK Tropical Freeze to see what all of the hype is about.

Yeah, pretty predictable. Everyone has the same 6 or 7 franchises in various order. Would be more interesting to do a top 5, along with favorite and least favorite title from each ranking. You'd get some diversity in there.

What, like full moons, silver bullets, and eyebrows that join in the middle?

1. Legend of Zelda
2. Metroid Primes
3. Mario & Luigi RPGs
4. Donkey Kong Country (Returns FTW quit whining about motion controls that are completely accurate also use numchuck)
5. Mother Series (Earthbound outside of Japan)
6. Super Smash Bros.
7. Fire Emblem
8. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon (excluding GTI)
9. Golden Sun
10. Kirby
11. Nintendogs

This top 10+ is following the one sub franchise per main franchise rule. In other words because I put Mario and Luigi I can't put Super Mario Bros.

80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I can't make a top 10 because the other franchises don't interest me in the slightest.

Haven't played enough of the donkey kong country games to comment on them other than the music is awesome, the only donkey kong games I've played a fair bit of are DK94 via 3DS vc and DK64 both of which I liked a lot, just haven't played enough of the games so far to give a verdict on the franchise over all.

I'd like to point out an interesting fact in the responses so far.

Pikmin has been mentioned in about half the lists, which is 9 times. Besides 2 times when it was listed 8th, it was listed top 5 everytime. It ranked 5th twice, 2nd4 times, and even 1st once. What i'm getting at here is that it is generally absolute tops, or not even considered, kinda a love it or hate it type of thing. Either people just don't "get it" because it's not their kind of thing, or if they do like it, they love it.

It really speaks to the quality of the games, whether or not they're you're "flavor".
