11. Super Mario World (17 last year) first impression 9, replay 8.5, technical 10.

Pros: Superlative game all around, one of very few on my list to get a 10 on the technical side, the game just did almost everything right. Phenomenal postgame content, so many levels to explore, hidden exits galore, and the strongest post-game of any Mario game (until 3D World came along, anyway. Next year shall be interesting).

Cons: Keeping it out of the top 10 is almost exclusively boss battles. They did not sing quite as clear as other Mario games, which impacts first impression. Replay flails a little too, as once you've done all that doing, you're not as motivated to go back and do more.

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
