Several factors must be taken into account when creating a list of the 50 best Nintendo games available right now. Firstly, each game must be a current-generation game. Ports of games from previous generations or backwards-compatible titles are not counted. Second, remasters of last-gen games do not count unless they provide substantial changes or additions to gameplay or story. Finally, each of the best Nintendo games listed must have been released for either the Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo Wii U.
This list of the 50 best Nintendo games will be updated periodically over the coming weeks, months and years as both the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS end their life cycles. Any changes to the list’s rankings will be updated with the help of GameSided staffers, who helped provide their opinions on the list as a team.
