Zelda is pretty good too. Probably the most consistently high quality one, other than Mario I guess. But I don't care about Mario.

Zelda being consistently good (though I find even the best of them to be around 8.5/10) is one of the main reasons why it's in my Top 10 favorite franchises. I've never been trully enamored by any of them, not single one of them is in my Top 10 GOAT, but sheer amount of enjoybale Zelda games puts the IP in my favorite ones.

I'd be interested in knowing that top 10 GOAT, hmmm... you know, there might be a place for that...



I only like 3 on this list, and I rank them thusly:

Pokemon > Fire Emblem > Smash Bros

I wish that Nintendo and Koei Tecmo would make a new Fatal Frame for Switch, or at least port Fatal Frame 5 to Switch. Fatal Frame is the only other Nintendo franchise I like.

Damn straight, you and me both. Fatal Frame 6 for the Switch would be freaking awesome.



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

3d zelda. Metroid prime is a close second. Smash and pikmin are nice bonuses but those 1st 2 I mentioned are the main reasons I still buy 10do consoles. Theres alot of games 10do has that I love but most crap out the more aequels they get. The 1st ls mansion was great. Dark moon and dark moon part 2 really were fun but not near as good. They leaned into theme based levels too hard for my taste. Mario is the only other one that consistently gets AAA size games and ive only enjoyed the newest 2 of them. Cant stand xenoblades combat. Wish it just played like dragon quest 11. Kid icarus and starfox are the 2 most underutilized ips. So much potential wasting away behind smaller or no projects. Wish eternal darkness and the last story would actually become franchises.



Lol the fact that a real game franchise like pikmin is not on this list but a series of fun distractions like the "wii series" is is the perfect embodiment of why ive been losing my love for nintendo.



Animal Crossing, anyone?



Take a guess :)



   

Mario would be number 1. Also love Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, Punch-Out!!, Rhythm Heaven and Wario. Probably others Im forgetting as well.

btw Nintendo solely owns Donkey Kong.
