GameDaily writes: "Every system has one or more defining games, the killer apps that make people want the console. Xbox 360 has Halo 3 and Gears of War 2, while the PlayStation 3 blew everyone away with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and just wowed them again with the recently released God of War III. Even the Atari Jaguar, one of the worst consoles ever, had Alien vs. Predator and Tempest 2000.
Obviously, the same holds true with Nintendo. Each of the publisher's incredibly successful systems have a handful of triple A video games that helped move hardware off store shelves. As expected, most of them star an Italian plumber that enjoys going "whoo-hoo" and "here we go", but there's a long list of quality titles that made us beg our parents for a Super Nintendo, Wii and Nintendo 64."
