Probably super mario 64.It was the game that teached all other devs how to handle movement and camera placement in 3d.It doesn't matter what is your favourite 3d title today, it wouldn't be made without mario 64

I can't decide between BotW and Mario 64. I think my favorite game is BotW, but Mario 64 was completely revolutionary as a launch title.



I make game analyses on youtube:

Shadow of the Colossus: https://youtu.be/9kDBFGw6SXQ

Braid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7tZiowT_qM

BotW. It's not only my favourite launch title, but also my favourite game in general.



While every game on the list is excellent in my book, I have to go with the popular vote and give top honours to BOTW, for reasons I've gushed about at length many times before.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

I think there are only two choices:

-Super Mario Bros.
-Mario 64

Both are games that became the bedrock that the industry was built around for years. I'll give the edge to Super Mario Bros..

Super Mario Bros wasn't a launch game... Also Super Mario World is better than both games easily.



Twilight Princess. Was a close call with Mario World and Mario 64 though.



Close call between Mario 64 and BOTW but I don't think I'll ever feel the same things i felt when i first played Mario 64. Everything was to be discovered and was so different from what I experienced before.

To be a little provocative, BOTW is what every Ubisoft games (Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs,...) with an Open Wolrd tried to achieve. BOTW is the best Ubisoft-like game ever made.

Don't get me wrong, I really loved it, played over 250 hours and it's the best game I played in years.

BOTW is innovative... for the Zelda franchise... SM64, on the other hand, was and still is a revolution leading to what 3D videogames are now.

So SM64 for innovation, History and memories

I know right, only 2 votes for Wii Sports, such an injustice.

I would say Twilight Princess but I only like the Gamecube version so I'll go with Mario 64 (N64 version).
