Best: Oh man, this is a tough one. There are a ton of great Nintendo games, but if I were to pick one it would be Super Mario World. Perfect controls, massive levels with branching pathways, and a memorable soundtrack to boot. This is what I would consider my favorite game of all time - I have 100%'d SMW quite a few times and it was one of the games (along with Super Mario All-Stars, Donkey Kong Country, F-Zero, and Mario Kart 64) that got me into gaming in the first place. It is 2D Mario at its finest!

Worst: This one's easy for me... Paper Mario: Sticker Star. This is a textbook example of how NOT to change things up for follow-ups for a beloved series. Firstly, the story isn't anywhere near as good as Thousand-Year Door or Super Paper Mario. Secondly, there's no partners or experience points. Thirdly, and the worst thing about PM:SS, is how battles were implemented. Who thought it was a good idea to throw away regular attacks that players can use anytime they want, and replace them with stickers that go away after they're used?! Granted, you can find stickers in many places, but this became a huge problem to me by the time I was nearing the end of the second world. Even as a huge Mario fan, I never want to touch this game again. I did hear Color Splash was a little better, but I ended up not getting it for obvious reasons.

Nintendo Life's (self-proclaimed) #1 Mario fan! Wahoo!

@MarioLover92 I have to agree with you super mario world was a sick game back in its time and its still a amazing game still today.

For me it has to be between Super Mario World and Mario Maker as they are the two Nintendo games I played the most and had the most fun with.



Best: Super Mario Maker or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It's a tough pick. Super Mario Maker is a game I love and hold dear for how much fun I have had with it, but Smash is so fantastic and I just never want to stop playing it!

Worst: Metroid on the NES. Need I say more? It's just utter garbage. The grinding for health, no minimap, clunky controls, and almost everything else I just hate about this game.

Nice >:]

I do stupid stuff on, so check it out if your bored or whatever.
Or don't, it's your time after all.


Best: Super Mario 64. Despite this franchise not being among my favorite ones (with the exception of their RPG branch Paper Mario 1 and 2), their mainline star collecting 3D games in particular are something that I enjoy to this day.

Worst: Sticker Star... @MarioLover92 explained everything that I didn't like about it, in detail.

Undergoing games:
Yooka-Laylee and The Impossible Lair (playing it)
Zelda BotW (mostly focused on this game)
Zelda Twilight Princess (Wii) (on pause)
Zelda OoT 3D Master Quest (on pause)
Spyro The Dragon (Reignited Trilogy) (on pause)


Best - Earthbound
Worst - Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival

Actually, Superman 64 was only ON a nintendo console. It wasn't developed or published by Nintendo. That cursed game was all Titus Interactive's doing. So, I don't think it counts as a "Nintendo game".

I can't just pick one for each category so I'm just going to go by console and choose multiple games

Nintendo DS:
Best - Pokemon SoulSilver, Dragon Quest IX, Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2, Fossil Fighters, Fossil Fighters Champions, Mario Kart ds
Worst - N+, Club Penguin, Some Monster Truck Racing Game,

Nintendo 3ds:
Best - Kid Icarus Uprising, Xenoblade Chronicles, Pokemon XY, Monster Hunter 3+4 Ultimate Monster Hunter Generations
Worst - Fossil Fighters Frontier, Yoshis New Island, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Pokemon Sun and Moon,

Nintendo Wii:
Best - Super Mario Galaxy 1+2, Mario Kart Wii, Super Paper Mario, Super Smash Bros Brawl
Worst - Skylanders Giants, Mario & Sonic London Olympic Games,

Nintendo Switch:
Best - Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Splatoon 2, Super Smash Ultimate
Worst - Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: The game isn't nearly as bad as the previous ones I put in the worst category, but out of all the Switch games I have in my library (which is small) I find this the most underwhelming, especially compared the to greatness of Mario Kart Wii and Ds, 7 on the 3ds was great too.

Best: [404 Page Not Found. This request does not compute!]
Worst: Easily Pokemon Dash for me. I still partially blame it for killing some of my interest in the racing genre.
