Poor Mario Odyssey; on most consoles it'd be a real contender for best on the system, but it had the bad luck of sharing the stage with one of the most exceptional games of all time in BOTW. I feel it kinda gets overlooked as a result.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I really think, in light of the lack of parity in this poll, that a followup should happen that removes BotW. I'm sure non-Nintendo fans on this site wouldn't appreciate back-to-back Nintendo themed polls, but it would certainly be fun to see which title would be the true runner up.

Easily Mario Odyssey I think

I played games for over 30 years now, and I still don't get what's so special about smash, it actually makes no sense to see characters from different universes fighting each other, more so when most those characters are not fighters themselves.

I played smash first with gamecube, never got into it, tried it on wiiU again, still don't see the appeal. Nowhere near Soulcalibur or even tekken, dead or alive.

I wish I could really get into it, because apparently it should be amazing, I just cant see what's so special.

With that said I would never put a fighter on top of best games list, fighters lack story, content, open world. I see fighters just as I see fifa games, you get some characters and you fight, same thing over and over and over, somehow they still managed to make it fun with soulcalibur.

For the same reason I would also never put an online only game on top of any list, because you need to pay for a subscription and you need to pay for internet, so that's 50 for subscription + 400 for internet + 60 for the game = 510 dollars to play the online game per year, no game should be on top of any list at those prices when stuff like witcher 3, Zelda and Xenoblade have a hundred hours or more of gameplay for 60 dollars.

Oh please, I know you can see that most people don't feel the same as you about crossovers. Sure it doesn't make sense from a narrative standpoint, but the game isn't cannon so that doesn't matter. It makes sense because that's what people want. Seeing beloved characters that don't all necessarily fit in with each other together is just cool. Plus the gameplay is really unique. Not hard to get even if you don't like the game.

I put Splatoon 2 as my number 1, so screw your self made rules about what games should count as games.

Your response is immature, are you 12? You explain nothing and you didn't change my opinion not even one bit. In fact your response answers my question about why people love the game, apparently you don't even know why you like it, because its cool? What kind of an answer is that? That's like someone asking what's so appealing about soup, and someone answering its good because its cool.

Don't know if you have noticed but I have a point on online games, check the best games for most years, mostly single player games, God of war, Witcher 3, Sekiro, Zelda, Dragon age and so on, the only time in 30 years that I remember an online only game winning game of the year was Overwatch.

Mario was a huge disappointment, I was hoping for a true Mario 64 successor, all we got was a Mario that wont even lose lives, barely a game, more like an exploration thing with no challenge, bosses were far far too easy, and there were too many hidden collection stuff, I preferred much more the clear tasks of Mario 64 and Mario sunshine.

880 moons to collect? I got bored and quit way before half that. They should have had like 100-200 moons, but each with clear mission tasks, and challenging.

Zelda is great but also a bit overrated, on a big screen you can see a lot of jaggies, so graphics are not impressive, I still loved the game, but I think Nintendo fans over exaggerate how good it was.

Switch is good, but still didn't excite me as much as the first time I had a N64, the 3d and graphics were top at the time, and Mario 64 and Ocarina of time changed gaming forever, even 007 golden eye was innovative as a shooter on console, unlike splatoon which is just a normal shooter with a coat of paint, also the controls are horrible in splatoon, I could barely target anything properly, maybe because I use a pro controller on the ps4 with way better controls.

As great as the Switch is, I still feel at this point in its life it hasn't delivered quite as many diamond-tier games as, say, systems like the N64, Wii, SNES, Xbox 360.

Still, given it's only three years old, it still has a chance to pass those systems by the end of its run, so long as its upcoming schedule isn't as barren as it currently looks.

I agree, take out the games that also are on wiiU, take out remasters and ports, and you barely have a decent library at all. Where's pikmin, where's a new Mario kart? Where's a new Pilot wings, a new Metroid prime, a new donkey cong, F-zero. 

I have had all consoles in 30 years, I like the switch but its way overrated, controller isn't great, not even a decent d-pad, charging the controller is fiddly, you cant charge and play at the same time, even inserting games is fiddly, not as easy as inserting a disc on ps4 and xbox with a push of a button.

I don't see a problem with it not having lives. In this day and age, what's even the point of having lives? All it does it waste the player's time by booting them back to the title screen and making them load the game up again. This way you're still penalized by losing coins and going back to the last checkpoint, but it respects your time more.

I do agree that it would've been better with fewer moons with a clear mission for each, but since there's still a ton with bespoke missions, I didn't think it was a big deal, more of a minor niggle.

So Zelda is overrated... because it has jaggies? Not sure I follow your logic there, the praise comes mostly not for its visuals but for its open-ended and emergent gameplay.

And how is Splatoon a "normal shooter"? It's movement and ink mechanics make it unlike any other shooter out there. And I found it easy to target things in it, granted there is definitely a learning curve if you're not used to motion controls,  but once I got the hang of them I could aim far more quickly than analogue alone can allow for.

Man...someone sure is coming in here and stinking up this thread with negativity. Post after post. Alright,. we get it, your opinion is classy. Ok.

I do sort of agree to an extent; Switch definitely has a problem in that too much of its content is rehashed and not enough is original.

That said, it's still already made its way up to #5 on my best-of-all-time consoles list, and I've also been gaming for close to 30 years.

I explained why your claim that the crossover makes no sense is incorrect, why the crossover is appealing to people, and if you were paying any kind of attention, it'd be obvious I'm not trying to change your opinion, only help you understand why many like what you don't. Cool is of course the tl;dr version, but it's the only answer that's needed. What do you want, me to write an essay? If you still don't understand something so simple n obvious, then you never will. If you wanna be the sole person who believes Smash sells millions of copies either for some unexplained reason or because people just don't know what they're doing, then feel free!



1) Three Houses, 2) Sonic Mania, 3) Xenoblade Chronicles 2, 4) Super Mario Odyssey, and 5) Breath of the Wild.
