#25: New Super Mario Bros. Wii (2009)
Last Year: 21

While the New Super Mario Bros. games have never proven to be the freshest of gaming series, they have always provided something far more important: fun. While the graphics and (especially) the music have never truly excelled (Bah bah!), the level design and controls have always done so. New Super Mario Bros. Wii, the second of the NSMB series (now out of four, and continued by the wonderful NSMBU... who couldn't make it because of scheduling conflicts) also provided the first true Mario multiplayer experience, where up to four players could play the main game at a time (although while frantic fun, four players caused more chaos than a bunch of Sumo Bros. in a china shop). And with a final boss battle and even the credits providing that sense of greatness few games have accomplished, what's not to love? Some amazing and fun moments to be had with this one.
