Majora's Mask and twilight princess in the 30's!!!

There's no way I'd put Super Mario Galaxy at number 3. Ahead of ALL those awesome games. Nah.

Also, Pokemon Red & Blue number 204?!

If you drop the nostalgia classes, and just gave the newer games a chance, I'm pretty sure you'll find why it's not in a higher number. I'm not saying the Red and Blue aren't good, just that Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova have been better than Kanto.

Nostalgia glasses? I've completed all of them. But it's a greatest games of all time list. And Red & Blue were much more revolutionary back then than the new one's are now. So they deserve to be higher up

Yes, Red and Blue did start the whole thing, and they did revolutionize the handheld market, but you're telling me that just because the new ones aren't "revolutionary", they don't deserve to be on a higher list? Look at Diamond/Pearl. That game REVOLUTIONIZED Pokémon by adding online play. Before then, the only way you could battle and trade was by using link cables to things locally, and some e-reader or whatnot to get the event Pokémons. With D/P, Pokémons players all over the world can now battle, trade to collect and complete their, what was once seeming impossible, Pokédexes, communicate with other fans, and get certain event Pokémons instead of having to go to real life Pokémon Centers and Pokémon tours and other such events. D/P also brought 3D graphics (to the main games, at least) and brought back some old and some new fans after Gen III disappointed a lot of people. Gen V didn't do much, but it was still a good game (despite people hating it just for nostalgia's sake), brought easier ways o communication, a much nicer (well, debatable) viewpoint instead of the usual bird's eye view, and while it may not really be such a huge feature in videogames, but Pokémon now have moving sprites in battle instead of being still like in the past. To me, adding online features is just as big of a REVOLUTION to the Pokémon games as the release of Red/Blue.

Well, anyways, despite whether which Pokémon games deserve to be on top, all Pokémon games have been unique, featured their own game-changing features, and deserve to be on any top-Nintendo list.

Oh, I thought it was how many games Mario has been in. :P
Just kidding, but he HAS been in 244 games, so not quite 285.

The real list -

1.Ocarina of time
2.Super Mario Bros
3. Mario 64
4. Pokemon Red . blue . yellow
5. Smash bros (can't decide which one)
6. The legend of Zelda
8. Mario Galaxy
9. Metroid Prime 1
10. Skyward Sword

My list :)

In terms of raw gameplay, I would've sure thought Galaxy 2 would've beaten out the first one...
Awesome that Astro Boy is at 38! Even though it's a licensed anime game, it is a great game!
Surprised that Ninja Five-O even made it...
I think Earthbound should've been higher.
This list has some I guess "lesser" known titles and that's cool to see. I think most, if not all the games on this list are great.

EddieNX 2299d ago

The standards of this list are ridiculously high. The top 100 are all like ''9.5/10+'' games lol...
