What is your favorite series? Not limiting you to things that Miyamoto made (Mario, Zelda etc) but I am limiting you to things that are only nintendo creations, like metroid, and earthbound stuff like that.
what Series do you like best!?
Answer below, I hope to hear some good responses!
My personal favorite is obviously Zelda, I love Mario, but Zelda was the first video game I ever played and beat. It has always been a large part of my childhood.
Not limiting you to things that Miyamoto made (Mario, Zelda etc)
While Miyamoto is most certainy respectable and should be acknowledged as doing much for the video game industry, people tend to give him a little too much credit. He may have started those franchises, but he can't be called the person who "made" them. Mario and Zelda have had numerous development teams over the years with Miyamoto playing a largely hands-off role (Or perhaps no role at all) for ages.
Anyway, my favorite would be Zelda, followed closely by Metroid with Mario in a close third. Star Fox follows after that, with Donkey Kong after that.
Considering this is a zelda fansite I think putting *Besides zelda* in the OP would be better.
OT: Well, this is hard. Though I'd have to say pokemon. with SSB in a very close second.
Mario is great, but in all honesty, there are some other platformers that I find funner. Mario does always have very tight and consistent gameplay though.
1. Zelda - Epic series and almost all of the titles are instant classics.
2. Mario - I love the classic 2D platformers as well as the Galaxy games.
3. Final Fantasy - Loved the games when they were on the SNES
4. Tecmo Bowl - Best sports series ever!
5. Mario Kart - Plain fun.
Besides Zelda and Mario, obviously, I'd say my favorite Nintendo franchise is Paper Mario. As opposed to the normal Mario platformers, Paper Mario introduces great stories, and the battle system is just superb. I also love how much there is to do beside the main quest, like in the second installment, you have the recipes, the trouble center and so forth. I've used immensely many hours playing Paper Mario, and I still love it to death. Can't wait for the next installment on 3DS.
Tecmo Bowl was made by...yeah you guessed it, Tecmo. :p
Mein favorites from the Big N:
Fire Emblem: I love Fire Emblem, even if its fanbase is a bit...wanky.
Mother series: Oh why why wont you make more.
Paper Mario: I love Mario but i love this series so much more.
Mario: Ahh of course. Good ol Mario.
A thousand eyes and one. Still watching... You can still PM me for the clan test! A Dream of Westeros: 4900-2186-7042 Animal Crossing Dream Suite
Zelda, Zelda, and more Zelda. I've grown up with it all of my life. The plots, the stories, the land, they all boost my creativity and inspire me to write and draw. It have also introduced me to many new friends.
Metroid. A badass inside a power suit that brings death to everyone she encounters is definitely better than a boy who has Tourette's and can swing a sword around or a fat plumber whose only claim to fame is stomping on innocent mushrooms.
