Firstly, this list has been created based on its writer’s personal preferences, if you disagree, that’s perfectly fine, but it’s in no way claiming to be a definitive list. Secondly, given the way Nintendo utilizes some of its characters, we’ve had to establish some ground rules. For example, Mario hasn’t been considered as a single franchise, but rather multiples encompassing the likes of Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Land, Super Mario 3D etc. Please keep that in mind before you yell at us because we haven’t mentioned Super Mario World which, incidentally, is still rated as the best Nintendo game of all time by most of the office (except Pete, who continues to try to convince us all that it’s The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past).
