Top 5:

  • Zelda - A Link to the Past (SNES)
  • Skylanders - Spyro's Adventure (PS3/WiiU)
  • Ratchet and Clank (PS2)
  • Spyro the Dragon (PS1/Switch)
  • Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo (SNES/PC)

Honorable Mention:

  • Final Fantasy 8 (PS1)
  • Super Mario Bros 3 (NES)



SNES only had:

Super Street Fighter 2
Street Fighter 2 Turbo

PC had both combined.



There are too many influential (to me) and all around great games to pick a definitive top 5, so I'm gonna do this by genre (so, still more than 5).

Action: Astral Chain
Adventure: Zelda: Twilight Princess
Fighting: Super Smash Bros (as a series)
Flight: Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy
Metroidvania: Metroid: Fusion
Platformer: Super Mario Galaxy
Racing: Forza Horizon 4
Shooter: Titanfall 2
Strategy: Fire Emblem: Awakening

There's just so many great games that even this list feels thoroughly incomplete. Even just in terms of RPGs, FFVIIR, DQVIII or anything Xenoblade could take that top spot, and Tales of the Abyss/Vesperia, Ys VIII & DQXI aren't too far behind either.
