    1. Gonna beat the game in one day XD

      in what, wii? are you insane, a racing or sports based mario game in the top over skyward FRICKEN SWORD THE GAME THAT WILL SURPASS OCARINA OF TIME!!!!…probably…

        1. Once I finish my Japanese lessons I’m importing a Japanese Wii along with Tales of Graces, Xenoblade, and Pandora’s Tower(I believe it’s out in Japan).

    1. Gonna beat the game in one day XD

      I beg to differ, i bet you that with the release of OoT 3D sales will go up higher for skyward sword, plus the fans of it will encourage more people to buy it. skyward sword will own our very souls man OUR SOULS

        1. yes, but without major system-sellers like Wii Fit, the Wii admittingly wouldn’t have sold nearly as well, possibly keeping other great games like Galaxy and Skyword sword from ever being developed

    1. Gonna beat the game in one day XD

      um, hb no, because while some people man enjoy it, it’s really not that high in demand as a whole >.>

    2. I agree. The DS version was probably my favourite game of all time. I’ve put 100’s and 100’s of hours into that game, can’t wait until the 3DS one.

  1. I agree with everything except Rayman Origins and the entire DS list, except for maybe Super Fossil Fighters, which I never heard of, but it sounds like it could potentially be an awesome game.

  2. Mario Kart 7 deserves to get the NO1 spot like it’s rightfully got.It looks like it’s going to be another fantastic Mario Kart game and it’s in 3D!What more could you want?3D rules!

  3. Sweet!!!! Skyward sword is number 1 Wii Game! It is 1 on my Wii list!

    And 4 of the 3DS games has mario in it, Lugis mansion 2 will have mario.

  4. What about Kingdom Hearts 3DS and Animal Crossing 3D? Id love the other 3DS games, but idk more than these two. Mario Kart is going to be dope…. Super Mario & Luigi’s Masion are going to be “beat the game and I’m done”

      1. Isn’t it obvious? Nintendo has their magazine make their games seem like they’re the best. Haven’t you ever wondered why most games by Nintendo get at least an eight/ten in NP, but lower everywhere else?

        1. Thats not true, an nintendo mag called N gamer has rated nintendo games badly sometimes, they said they hate Mario party 8 and are not excited at all for 9.

          They gave Zelda 3DS 93/100 recently, so they don’t make their games seem the best. It’s true some nintendo games are probably the best ones like Zelda and metroid.

          Nintendo mags support nintendo primarily and talk nintendo and things, they give nintendo games very bad reviews at times. I’ve seen some of the reviews they did, Fortune street was strange about N gamer member going to the demo and then hated it then went to Skyward sword.

      2. Probably either because he’s the most famous game character worldwide or his games almost always get great reviews would be my guess.

        1. But games are not mainly about the protagonists. Its about the gameplay, the fun the plot, the enemies, the adventure, and also protagonists. People only buy mario games for the Protagonist in this case mario usually.

            1. But why are some of the best Nintendo franchises dying out?
              Star fox is dying and also metroid as its sales are going right down.

              Its not just them, F-zero looks dead and Earthbound is sure dead.

              Hope Star fox 64 3DS is successful and REBOOT THE STARFOX SERIES NINTENDO!

              1. Star Fox has BEEN dying out for quite some time, Metroid’s sales are obviously down because of Other M, which wasn’t as good as the Metroid Prime series. I’m pretty sure Mario sales went down with Sunshine, as it wasn’t considered as good as Super Mario 64 and many even considered that it wasn’t a Mario game at heart. F-Zero has been dead for quite some time but it may be revived on the Wii-U, as Nintendo has been reviving dead franchises for a while, while Earthbound…that’s just dead…period.

  5. Wii-Agreed on everything

    3DS-Paper Mario 1st then Super Mario 3D land and I’m ok with the rest of the list.

    DS- Shin Megami Tensei Devil survivor 2 in the first spot, I’m sick of Lego harry Potter and well while Professor Layton is good, puzzle games are not my cup of tea.

      1. I don’t like magical fantasy i like realistic ones. I don’t see the point of Lego eather. I Don’t like harry potter, please don’t cause a huge fan debate as it’s my opinion, I’m more of a Sci-Fi person you maybe more of a fantasy.

        Soon we will get lego transformers and lego smurfs if this continues!

        1. I’m the total opposite.I love Lego games and I love Harry Potter.I love Doctor Who more than Harry Potter and Lego games though.Lego Doctor Who would be the perfect game combination for me.

          Personally,I would love Lego Transformers.Lego Smurfs is a different story though.That Smurfs movie looks so cheesy.

          1. Not to mention, everything may become lego in the future, We already see lego Harry Potter and star wars and indiana jones.

            What could be next? Lego mario? Lego Kirby? Lego Dragon quest? Lego Spiderman?

  6. Harvest Moon: Tale of Two Towns would be #1 for me, than Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 would probably be #2. Also Shin Megami Tensei: Overclocked would be up there in 3DS.

  7. I want the Dragon Quest Collection that Japan is getting but we aren’t. Sounds like some other games I know. *cough* The Last Story *cough*

  8. i think this is what 3ds should be:
    1. Kid Icarus Uprising
    2. resident evil revelations
    3. tales of the abyss
    4. Animal crossing
    5. Super mario 3d land

  9. list seems alright… I just preordered my Skyward Sword bundle… so i agree wiht the # 1 for the Wii… however Xenoblade should EASILY make a very close # 2

  10. I’m happy to see LAYTON take the top spot. I cannot wait for thst game. More so than MK7 and M3DL, but i’m also pumped for cave story 3D and Kid Icarus.

    Also i’m hoping the yoshi game rumor is true because i feel bad for my sister with the lack of ‘happy’ games on the 3ds :/ she loved yoshis island DS so yea

  11. This is out of topic but I’m wondering what Nintendo are planning to do with the second stick

    A lot of developers were disappointed with the lack of dual analogs, but by adding an accessory like this a year in, developers will have to choose between programming two control schemes, or limiting their games to one group of gamers.

    If you program single analog only, you may have to compromise with your control scheme. If you program dual analog, you’ll be excluding gamers who bought the 3ds and don’t have this ugly accessory.

    Nintendo have essentially created fragmentation on a single piece of hardware, and it could have been easily avoided if they’d had the foresight to include dual controls to begin with.

    My prediction, Nintendo are going to release a 3DS Duo ASAP to compete with Vita. It will be a slap in the face for early adopters, who will be forced to buy this accessory or miss out on the ‘full experience’ on new games, but it’s the only way that they can get hardware parity with Vita.

    I’m sure Nintendo know that here in East Asia we’ll play Monster Hunter on whatever platform has better controls… and that platform will sell millions

  12. A little peculiar that the wii and 3ds games are all nintendo games with the exception of rayman. You would think that resident evil revelations or mgs snake eater would be on the list…

    1. Sonic Generations
    2. Kid Icarus: Uprising
    3. Rodea the Sky Soldier
    4. Mario Kart 7
    5. Super Mario 3D Land
