Selective Creation: Build the Best Nintendo List There Is!



  • It's time to return to a Second Chance Build and this time, it's all about Nintendo!

    What does this mean? It's time to pick the best 30 Nintendo games of ALL TIME. ANY Nintendo exclusive is up for nomination. A game MAY have been ported, but it MUST have been a Nintendo exclusive for at least 6 months.

    As always - Quick rule refresher for potential new players:

    Here's the breakdown: You've been given the power to green-light 30 games, but here's the catch: these 30 games will be the ONLY big N games EVER. What should be the games that make the cut? By giving 30 select titles, you are essentially playing an inverse of Kill Your Babies.

    You can only give one title until four people have added after you OR 12 hours have passed since the last overall addition, NOT NECESSARILY YOURS, so think really hard about which game should be on the list. It could be your favorite game, or if your favorite is already present, then you can add another you hold dear. Or if you don't like Nintendo, get to trolling if it makes you happy.

    To keep some diversity, I'm instituting a franchise cap. So if two entries of a series get put on the list, a third CAN NOT be added.

    Once you have given a game, please keep a running list going for the benefit of the next person that would like to play. Because I'm pitching the game, I will refrain from adding to the list unless absolutely necessary because it would be unfair for me to skew the list in my favor.

    And so Allies, what are the definitive 30 games that define of Nintendo?

    Have fun!



  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

    Because it's the only Zelda game I actually like more than just "oh this is kinda fun."



  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
    Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door

    Masterpiece



  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
    Paper Mario ans the Thousand year door

    Super Mario Bros. 3

    It was my fav. mario game for years, and introduced so many mechanics/ideas we still have today.



  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
    Paper Mario ans the Thousand year door
    Super Mario Bros. 3
    Metroid Prime

    I didn't have a gamecube, but it almost made me buy one.



  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
    Paper Mario ans the Thousand year door
    Super Mario Bros. 3
    Metroid Prime

  • Oh boy, this list is going to stir up some shit!

    2 entries per series, you say?

    We already have The Wind Waker.

    I haven't played Breath of the Wild.

    Therefore, the only right answer is:

  • @Axel Worse decisions have been made. Not many, but some... :D



  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

    Also, I can't remember with these, is it allowed since it later came out on other platforms. But after the EoL for the SNES?



  • @Sazime Ocarina of Time would have been the first one to be killed anyway ;)

    And the rule is that the game must have been Nintendo exclusive for at least 6 months, so I think FF VI qualifies, no problem.

    One of the weirdest RPGs on a Nintendo system.
