About David Rawlings

David Rawlings, or ‘Rawky’ as we like to call him, joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign at the beginning. He’s British and found solace with us as he was able to understand our pain about Nintendo and their localizing faux pas. He’s a big fan of the letter ‘U’ and refuses to remove them from words, even though we constantly ask him to. He also believes it’s about time Princess Daisy got kidnapped.

  • Rodan Hibiki

    Super Mario Galaxy 2 at number 7? This is a travesty! It deserves no less than number 3.

  • Heriel

    I must say it, this is one of the best tops i´ve ever seen, it´s full of great games!

  • davidvinc

    Tales of Symphonia 2 is higher than Arc Rise Fantasia? Really?!

    • zeezee

      Agreed. Arc Rise Fantasia deserves a top 10 space, in spite of its unfortunate localization.

    • Anthony Yousef

      I assume it might be due to the VA, well that’s my belief anyway. First time I heard Ryfia, i was terrified.

  • KingGunblader

    Ugh, I don’t normally complain about “Top X” lists, but I’ll make an exception for the fact that Metroid: Other M isn’t rotting in a landfill, E.T. style. At least it didn’t beat Prime Trilogy.


    • smacd

      Other M was a good game. Deal with it.

    • -Majin-

      It was the worst character rape—I mean universe rape— there ever was.

    • smacd

      Whatever dude. You sound like a whiner. I didn’t have any problem with it at all, and I’ve been a fan of Metroid since the first one. I can’t take anyone seriously who had a problem with them actually giving Samus some backstory and character for once. Quite frankly, you need to get the hell over it.

      The only problem I had with the game was that Samus had all the upgrades from the beginning and waited for “authorization”.

    • smacd

      Makes me wonder if you were one of those people who freaked out when Prime came out and was -gasp- First Person 3D too

    • Golossus117

      Good game, bad Metroid-game, as simple as that.

    • Mike

      Sadly I agree. Other M looked so good prior to release then when I went out and bought it… wow. I hated it. Not even the story. The gameplay too. I sold it. About two years later I saw it in Gamestop for $10, I’m like “Alright, for $10 I might as well try it again. It can’t be THAT bad.” So I tried it again. Hated it. Traded it in. Not even worth $10. Though I know there are people who enjoyed it. I’m happy for them.

  • Megas75

    Happy to see both No More Heroes games on this

  • Kroisos

    The only thing I wish were different would be for Fragile Dreams and Little King’s Story to have cracked the top 25. I personally think Skyward Sword was the best game on Wii, but that’s personal preference and I knew ahead of time what Operation Rainfall’s readers would prefer.

  • Tom Greene

    I smell bull or should I say ummm bull shit

  • Cameron Ward

    Mario Galaxy 2 should have been number 1 with SS being number 2, and Xenoblade being number 3, but i didnt vote….

  • Adam

    I missed the vote, but there’s no way I would have ranked the Mario Galaxy games so low on my list. They’re pure gaming bliss.

  • Francisco Cruz Badilla

    Very nice top, in fact the best one about everyconsole I have read

  • Golossus117

    I’m really happy that my top five favourite games of all time came in the top five in this list 😀
    Just rearrange them a little bit: Xenoblade Chronicles (absolute favourite), The Last Story, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword and SSBB.

    Too bad I don’t have either FIre Emblem: Radiant Dawn or the two No More Heroes games 🙁

  • Diegodm26

    well, for me ssmb 3, xenblade c 2, zelda sks 1

  • AlexSR

    Xenoblade Chronicles at number 1! You coudn’t be more correct than that! Best Wii game of all time!

  • Sabrina Nguyen

    The only thing I’d change is to put ‘The Last story’ up in second or third.
    but that’s just me. I’m in love with both that game and Xenoblade Chronicles, which I was lucky enough to get a hold of a week ago, totally worth the $80.
    Otherwise, I agree with everything else on here.

    • Spookyryu

      Yes, The last story is awesome

  • Violetwisp

    No Fragile Dreams? Ok, fine, I’ll concede that. Other then that missing, everything else on this list is valid, other then possibly having both Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2 on the list.

  • TheGamerGeek128

    Woah woah woah, New Super Mario Bros is above Return to Dreamland!? Also I can’t say number 1 suprised me at all, not that I disagree with number 1 or anything.

  • Who cares

    this top games sux a lot

  • RagunaXL

    w00t! 45) sakura wars
