    For me, it's most if not all of the Kirby franchise.
    The games are very engaging both in story and gameplay for me.

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, though I expect that to change around March of next year.

    Favourite Nintendo game? Probably Zelda: Majora's Mask. It's probably the game that left the biggest impression on my 10 yr old self, when it first game out for the N64.

    Super Metroid. Metroid Prime w/ Wii controls comes close second.

    I will always have a special love for Star Fox 64, and it will always remain my favorite game of all times simply for the heavy nostalgic value that the game has for me. I also have a very strong liking towards the Legend of Zelda series, with my favorite games being Twilight Princess and Wind Waker. I am very excited for Breath of the Wild to be released, as well. Visually, the game looks stunning.

    Majora's Mask. But to be honest I am not a big fan of the Zelda series :p Franchise-wise I am more into Kirby and Donkey Kong.

    wow uh, star fox zero just might be it

    (i'm assuming we're not allowed to pick second-party, Nintendo-published games)

    The Mario series is my favorite overall...specifically the Mario RPG series. PM: TTYD is my #1 favorite video game of all time.

    My favorite main series Mario game is 3D World, though. Unpopular opinion, I know...but in my mind yes, it is better than Galaxy, 64, the older 2D titles...I know I'm weird.

    Okay good, I'm glad that someone agrees. I mean honestly I agree with you, but from what I've heard from other fans of the games and around the Interwebs it is definitely not the popular choice for best Mario game.

    I THINK IT IS THOUGH AND SO DO YOU AND WE ARE RIGHT.

    Wasn't that game the new one that had bad motion controls though? I mean I heard garbage things about it... so I never considered it.

    My all-time favorite video game has gotta be EarthBound (see also: my avatar). There's just something about the game...its story, sense of humor, music...it all comes together perfectly.

    EarthBound is one of the main reasons I've been a Ness main in competitive Smash Bros. since 2009; maining Ness was the reason I wanted EarthBound. It's a symbiotic relationship that can never be severed.

    Aside from EarthBound, my other favorites are Super Smash Bros., basically every Zelda game, Super Mario Bros. 3 (the first video game I ever played), and Super Mario World (I've still gotta try and 100% speedrun that game again, I used to be able to do it in under 4 hours!)

    I mean, Mario Galaxy is pretty amazing too, but oh man Mario 3D World is really really really really good. I want more of that and less New Super Mario Bros. (yeah i know which series sells more than the other >.> )

    Motion controls are inherently not for everyone but Star Fox Zero's controls are far from garbage. They worked completely fine with me, had no issues, blah blah blah. I will say there should be other means of controls as, again, motion controls are not everyone (especially if you suffer from a motor disability or something), so everyone can just enjoy the same game I'm enjoying.

    But yeah, I had a total blast with that game. I can't go back to Star Fox 64. I liked that game out of nostalgia but once i came back to 64 after playing a tons of Zero, I couldn't stand it. Zero just really clicks and is exhilarating.

    I feel people are mad at the learning curve the game has, which makes sense, as there actually is a high learning curve. It's not that the control schemes are bad, but you have to understand like 4-5 different vehicles with their own unique controls. Each of those vehicles are completely fine, but I can see someone else having a hard time juggling all of that information. That said, I don't think Star Fox Zero was meant to be a pick up and play game, as a game about piloting several different machines having a lot of controls to memorize... does make sense. Now, if a game like Mario Kart forced me to understand just as much, I'd be pretty ticked as that series is meant to be for everyone.
