ONM names its top 100 Nintendo games of all time

Super Mario Galaxy 2 comes in at No.1

Our friends at Official Nintendo Magazine have revealed their top 100 Nintendo games of all time.


Super Mario Galaxy 2 tops the list, which features in the latest issue of the mag. Here's the top five:

  1. Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)
  2. The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (Wii)
  3. Super Mario Bros. (NES)
  4. The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time (N64, 3DS)
  5. Pokemon Black and White (DS)

ONM editor in chief Neil Long said of the winner: "If there's one game that encapsulates what Nintendo does as a games developer, it's Super Mario Galaxy 2. It's an explosion of colour, creativity, brilliant game design and it's the deserved number one in our list."

There are about a million brilliant Nintendo games, so putting together a top 100 list is a pretty daunting challenge, we're sure you'll agree. But what do you make of the top five?

The latest issue of ONM also features a round-up of the best content on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, the definitive account of what we know about the Wii U, and the world's first Kid Icarus Uprising review, among other features. You can subscribe to the mag here.
