Super Mario (2D and 3D line), Pokemon, and Donkey Kong.

Most of the other major series I cannot get into at all - Zelda, Metroid, Mario Kart, Smash, etc.

Metroid. I know that is has kind of become a meme answer considering the series relatively low-sales and just how much of the hype is self-contained to forums and subreddits. But, seriously, it feels like the most consistent series, and the most fully-realized one to me. I would go as far as to say there's thing in Metroid that I seriously wish were implemented into the likes of Zelda.

Coming up to this after defeating a boss has to be one of the best directed musical ques ever and one of the fondest memories I've had gaming the past few years, and I don't even like Super as much as Prime/Zero/Fusion

I guess the second would be Mario since of the few Mario games I've played in recent memory a disproportionate amount of them have landed in favorite-games-of-all-time territory (Mario Maker 2, 3D World, Mario Kart 8, ... and Origami King isn't too far off either but that's mostly because I usually don't like things) but there's something sort of odd about Mario that I can't place my finger on. I view the sub-series so differently from the mainline that I think I tend to underrate Mario as an entire franchise, because I really look at the separate sub-series as their own franchises (Mario Kart, Paper Mario, Super Mario, etc) even if they are part of the Mario franchise as a whole (I would word it as being part of the "Mario IP" though).

Sure thing, but that explanation still didn't really explain why it's a "meme" answer. Low sales don't determine whether you are or aren't allowed to like a videogame, and neither does its online fanbase. Metroid games have been consistently great, anyway.

Do you think I would have picked the series if I didn't know that? 

Thanks for a productive discussion.

So, why is it a meme pick again?

It is a memed pick, because people consistently act as if the fact that's it's so hyped on the internet relative to it's sales invalidates the praise it has gotten from a somewhat small circle-jerk niche community.

Regardless, you really would have realized that was obviously the point if you read the comment, dude.

I think you overestimate me. Thanks for explaining.



The Legend of Zelda, since I have yet to play a bad Zelda game

FE and Pokemon would get a shoutout, though there were some not as good FE games, while Pokemon has grown a bit stale over the years
