Cracking thread idea. Sadly though some are not the type of games I like but the others took a bit of time to settle on.. Especially Mario Kart, the SNES one was a time when everyone was playing it, all my friends and family so no matter where I went, it was competition time on Rainbow Road and I would normally smash 'em lol

Mario - Super Mario 64
Zelda - Ocarina of Time
Metroid - Super Metroid
Pokemon - NOT MY TYPE OF GAME -lol
Mario Party - NOT MY TYPE OF GAME -lol
Mario Kart - SNES Version
Smash Bros -NOT MY TYPE OF GAME -lol
Donkey Kong - Donkey Kong Country Returns

What about some actually GOOD games ;D

If it comes to Nintendo, everybody seems to always mention the same franchises over and over again. I cannot discuss here, never owned any Nintendo at release time, until I bought a Wii, mainly to try out some non Mario, Zelda, Kong... games, and because you could just install CIOS and play away. Nothing groundbreaking though, besides MadWorld, that's why I never got a Wii U nor a Switch, and will probably never get.

Actually the SNES has some good sports games, that's anyway more my focus.

I'm not a huge Nintendo fan so some of these franchises I've never even played, but I will give it a shot.

Mario - Super Mario Bros.
Zelda - Breath of the Wild
Metroid - Original NES game
Pokemon - Yellow, only one I've ever played so it wins by default lol
Mario Party - Never played any of them
Mario Kart - Mario Kart 8 on Wii U
Smash Bros. - Never played any of them
Donkey Kong - Original arcade game

In the time since I posted this I've already changed my mind from Link to the Past to Ocarina of Time.

I'm gonna be live streaming the latter on Youtube soon so I had a little play around today to make sure it's all working fine etc and oh man is that game amazing!! I forgot how huge a leap it was from the 2D games, it's been SO long since I played it so I just forgot, can't wait to get cracking with it

There is loads of permutations I could chose but I do see why you changed.
