IGN has deemed Super Mario 3D World the best Wii U game of 2013. The platformer was up against Rayman Legends, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Pikmin 3 and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Meanwhile, the entertainment website’s favorite Nintendo 3DS game of 2013 is The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, which bested four other Nintendo titles – Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Pokemon X and Y. Both winners are also included in IGN’s list of nominees for the best overall game of last year.
Shouldn’t it be A link Between Worlds? :P
I guess we’re stuck in 1991.
That 3DS Zelda game was boring as fuck. It put my ass to sleep.
There’s about 5 of you that feel that way worldwide. You guys should form a therapy group and Skype together.

Fire Emblem got robbed. The new Zelda was such a disappointment. First game in the series to truly bore me.
I liked the game but Fire Emblem Awakening was way better.
oopps double posting..
Alba, in the original post you put “A Link to the Past” instead of “A Link Between Worlds.”
I like my Wii U, I wish it came with a controller pro and a Wiimote plus nunchuck. I hope there is some cross play game with my 3DS in the near future.
Monster Hunter does that.
Let’s see how many trolls trying to look cool will bad mouth both these games in this thread.
2 post about “how the game was boring” obviously alt account
You can add a 3rd with the guy with posted a couple lines down.
Hey, don’t lump me in with people like that. I like Zelda, but the new one just rubbed me the wrong way.
This is only due to the fact that our games have not come out yet.
Wii U has like no games and the 3DS is only surviving because of 3D classics lmao I want to see where this is goind Nintendo sucks so much like lmao
I guess this is the part where we are supposed to come changing in bringing up that fact that the Wii U has a library 3x the size of the XBOX One and PS4 combined, call you names, etc, etc.
Nope. Go to bed sonny. Grown folks are talking.
Apparently the troll didn’t realize that even though he changed the name, the unique icon stays the same.

Dafuq to you to my friend? Thats greetings in your language right?
Yeah I know. Sad isn’t it?
fire emblem deserved it so much more. Zelda is no where as good.
I love it how haters ignore the great games Nintendo putout in 2013 and just whine and cry about WiiU.
You referring to the Sony/ Microsoft fans?
I felt and gave fire emblem awakening the 3ds game of the year. It was packed with awesomeness and not really any flaws. Zelda is a great game, it’s just that “normal” mode is uber easy so the final boss was a joke. The story was solid, the item renting was decent and the out of order dungeons was amazing. But it came down to a dumbed down game for difficulty. Honestly hero mode should be normal and if they are so concerned, offer out easy mode off the bat.
Wiiu I felt the same. Super Mario 3d world is a fun game, but again uber easy for the main game. I picked wonderful 101 as game of the year since it provided a new ip and pretty stellar new experience. The controls were top notch and that was a much more difficult game throughout.
Poor Fire Emblem: Awakening. It was probably one of the best games I ever played in my life and it was outshined by A Link Between Worlds according to many. Oh well, just goes to show the nostalgia behind Zelda is super strong. Which is great for Nintendo!
Would have liked to see Fire Emblem take away an award or two…
I thought they were both fantastic. However, I did log 2-3x more hours on FEA. :p FE was beyond epic. Still, as you said, Zelda, when done right, always wins. I would have voted for Zelda, although I can’t deny how FEA just took gaming by storm.
I will never understand why so many people praise Fire Emblem Awakening. I swear, I’m gonna have to play it some day just to see what’s so great. Because it looked stupid in the videos I watched of it.
The story is fucking amazing. The only warning to you would be, it is turn-based strategy. If you hate that kind of game play, it will ruin the game for you.
Oh, and probably has the most replay value of any game I’ve ever played. ..well, in the top 4 anyway.
Characters are amazing, combat is amazing, art style is amazing, music is amazing, story is amazing, replay value is amazing…. The game is just goddamn amazing.
Best RPG I’ve ever played that’s for sure.
Both well deserved, Zelda a link between worlds was probably the most fun I had playing a zelda game so far, loved ever minute of it, and Mario 3D world was an absolute joy to play.
I personally think Pikmin 3 is much better then 3D World and doesn’t get the attention it deserves in these best games of 2013 lists.
Yeah, it’s almost as if people have already forgotten about Pikmin 3. I’m STILL waiting to play it. I don’t have a Wii U yet. Whenever Nintendo releases a new color of Wii U, THAT’s when I’ll buy one.
Good, they both deserves it!

Mario is wiiu goty. Wiiu is a joke.
your a joke.
Only our empire delivers games that become legend…
I think Halo, as much as we hate to admit, has become fairly legendary, but NES games will always be the Greek-gods of gaming. ;D
Better than Fifa any day…
Reblogged this on RRB's Video Games Blog and commented:
So THIS is what Nintendo have been doing… Making games, reinventing games and basically BEING games. Not an overpriced war sim that requires virtual reallity to be fully appreciated, JUST gaming gaming and more GAMING!
Would’ve been nice if Nintendo would’ve got at least one award that wasn’t…Nintendo-only.
They could still win Game of the Year! It hasn’t been decided yet. Or IGN’s People’s Choice for Game of the Year.
OK, Lego Marvel Super Heroes was nominated, but not Wonderful 101…?
IGN only gave Wonderful 101 like 1 7, I think.
Fire Emblem might win IGN’s People’s Choice for Game of the Year. I see a LOT of people in the comments below saying “Fire Emblem GOTY!” Those comments also have the most likes.
Fire Emblem deserves it.
why is assassin’s creed 4 black flag on there but not the wonderful 101
