Smash Ultimate would be eliminated by the same logic as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, both are beefed up WiiU games. I know I've clocked a bunch of hours into Smash.
I would say Metroid is the winner but Tears is creeping up behind. Astral Chain looks good but I haven't played it. So does Xenoblade 3. Pikmin 4 is going to be a big one. For sure this thread will come alive late next year.

I'm actually starting to admire how dedicated you are to dying on this hill.




I make music, check it out here on Bandcamp, Spotify, and Youtube!
my top 50 games

Super Mario Odyssey, with Metroid Dread being the runner-up.

In accordance to the VGC forum rules, §8.5, I hereby exercise my right to demand to be left alone regarding the subject of the effects of the pandemic on video game sales (i.e., "COVID bump").

My top 5 would be:

  1. SSBU
  2. Astral Chain
  3. Super Mario Odyssey
  4. Metroid Dread
  5. Kirby and the Forgotten Land (Well, maybe not a true 1st party, but I'll include it)

Tears for the Kingdom will definitely be gunning for number 1.

Kirby is more first party than SSBU, AC and Metroid Dread.



The Wii U doesn't exist so Breath of the Wild. If I'm forced to choose another game I'd go with Metroid Dread.



Signature goes here!

Oh so not counting cross gen (BotW)? Well then I'd have to give it to:
1. Smash
2. Odyssey
3. Dread

BotW is the real #1 though. After next May though I have a feeling Z:TotK will be the new #1

Thanks. I know what's true, so I stand by it. ?

Anyway, no dying is happening here.

Astral Chain I can kinda understand but why the others? Smash Bros. and Metroid are full on Nintendo IPs and Dread was co-developed by MercurySteam and Nintendo EPD.
