I've braved the ads and drivel to condense that list back down to one page's worth of content (as it should've been from the outset). Here's that list, from top-ranked to bottom-ranked:

Pokemon: the DS generations
Mario Kart DS
M&L: Partners in Time
Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow
New Super Mario Bros.
Professor Layton and the Last Specter
The World Ends with You
Animal Crossing: Wild World
Elite Beat Agents
GTA: Chinatown Wars
Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
Pokemon Conquest
Professor Layton and the Curious Village
Advance Wars: Dual Strike
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
Tetris DS
LoZ: Spirit Tracks
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
999
Picross DS
DQIX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
Kirby: Mass Attack
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
Rhythm Heaven
Super Scribblenauts

the fact that Radiant Historia is nowhere near this list should be indication enough that it shouldn't be taken seriously.

your username was fine, soniclyscrewed, but the signature was not, I'm afraid. quote from Dr. Who or not, remember that jokes need more than bare text to be fully understood, and the one you had in your signature was a bit too ambiguously flat for its content to be fully understood at anything but face value. If you're attempting to use a quote from something, I'd suggest one that doesn't make light of racism, bigotry, and/or mass genocide. thank you for asking, though! :3

@Tasuki: Try refreshing the page before you go deleting your comments — half the time when i post on the main site now it looks like i've double-posted, but then when i refresh the page i've only posted once. that could be what's happening to you; it's showing the same comment posted twice so when you delete 'one of them' they both disappear.

3DS and DSi games are region-locked. They can only be played on a same-region console.
DSi-enhanced games are region-locked if played on a DSi or 3DS. They can be played on any region DS consoles though.
DS games are region free and can be played on any region DS phat, lite, DSi, or 3DS.

Guys, we do still check this thread. Ant made some fixes this morning, and I've tested them myself and they seem to work okay for me (as a normal user). Please try posting and deleting your own comments now and see if it works for you.

Also, if you find yourself unable to delete a comment via the article page, do me a favor and try opening the 'delete' link in a new tab and deleting it from there, see if that works or not.

I really enjoy how angry a few of you are getting that some of us have dared to view the Mario series as sexist. Your offensive statements are warming the cockles of my heart, I assure you, but nothing you say will change the fact that the Mario series is sexist.

no one's asking you to stop playing the games. all we're trying to do is help you see what's in plain sight before you. you can stick your heads in the sand all you like and flail about protesting the fact that we see this sexism for what it is, but that doesn't make this — and many other games, movies, TV shows, books, etc. and so forth — somehow not-sexist in nature. some of us here on the forums posting alongside you this very minute are women living in a man's world, and it's easy for a man to write these things off like they're nothing because you don't have to deal with them every day, but we do. every day we're reminded that we're the 'inferior' sex, every day we're told that we are weak and we should be meek and submissive around men — not always with words, but symbolism, subliminal messages, and body language say everything you're not saying with your mouths.

to those of you who have taken this opportunity to be offensive and deliberately dense, own what you're doing, maybe think a little bit harder about how your actions — and the things you encounter in your daily life — affect others around you of all shapes, sizes, colors, races, and creeds, and then move on. we don't need apologies or pity or whatever it is you think we want from you; all we need is to be treated the same way you'd treat any of your peers. continuing to argue the point is fruitless.
to those who have chosen to debate the topic rationally and without intending to offend, I thank you.

Super Mario Bros. 2. Peach (Toadstool) is not a damsel in distress, or "prize" as you see it. Right off the bat, you're wrong.
Quite frankly, I find the fact that you call her a prize to be sexist. She's a human being in need of help, and you're calling her a prize. THAT'S sexist.

no, but in the end, Mario wakes up and it was allllll a dreeeeeam. Silly Mario, and silly everyone else thinking Toadstool could take care of herself like that. whoops, don't wanna be late to get kidnapped yet again in SMB3, SMW, Sunshine, Galaxy... and don't forget to give him a big ol' kiss at the end of the games for rescuing you, too, princess! /eyeroll

DudeSean wrote:

What injustice? There is NO injustice here, at all, whatsoever. We're talking about Super Mario here. A video game. GAME.

and books are books. TV shows are TV shows. movies are movies. plays are plays. you say it's 'just a game', and if it were just one game perhaps you'd have a point, but it's not just one... it's damn near every game that reinforces the same 'girls are weak and need men to save them' stereotype.

btw, I see below you're resorting to the 'there are far more important problems in the world' argument, to which i say this — if we waited until all the 'big' problems in this world were worked out, we'd never see any change happen in the world, ever.

DudeSean wrote:

Super Mario Bros. 2. Metroid. Pokemon. Nintendo has games where the hero is a female. Even in the Mario series. So, no, your point is not valid. I can see how you can consider Super Princess Peach sexist, but she's a princess. Princess' are spoiled. Therefore she fits the character.

Mario 2 was a dream fantasy. Metroid features a woman, yes — shown off in a bikini at the end of the first game. Pokemon started out with having you playing a male character originally; thankfully that particular series has been more progressive with regards to allowing the player character to choose their gender, but Is that all you've got, though? why not bring up a Nintendo cornerstone like Legend of Zelda? Aside from SS Link is constantly having to save poor Zelda from the big bad meaniehead bad guys — ffs the only time she even remotely kicks butt is when she's impersonating a guy.

as for the rest of your replies, i'd respond about the same... yes, parents can teach and do whatever they like with their kids. they can reinforce whatever stereotypes they like and disown their children in the end should they turn out 'abnormal' or 'wrong'. i don't think anyone's saying they don't have the right to do so. what is being said is that there are things that are inherently sexist, and to turn a completely blind eye to that is folly. just because society views it as 'normal' doesn't magically make it not-sexist somehow, and some of us wouldn't mind seeing some changes made in the basic structure of video games to accommodate the idea of a strong female that can make the same rational choices and be just as awesome in general as her male counterparts.
