4. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
Did you expect this game to make an appearance, or be so high up the list? Did you know that this is one of very few games that have made me laugh out loud? Do you know how excited I (we) are for the upcoming 3DS game? Well do you? Actually, it doesn’t matter if you know or not, but what you do need to know is how awesome the Paper Mario series is; if you’ve never played them before then get on your Wii and download the first N64 game from the Wii Shop. You’re guaranteed* to love it!
Charlotte Buckingham – “Paper Mario TTYD is just an all-round fun game that isn’t afraid to poke fun at things.”
*not a real guarantee
3. Metroid Prime
No surprise here really. Metroid Prime, generally, always appears in the Top 10 of any best games list, and for good reason. Its constantly commended on its exploration and retaining the Metroid world, but in a first person 3D world. Operation Rainfall would have to agree, even if some of us haven’t actually gotten around to playing it yet… *cough*
Matt Honey – “Such great atmoshphere and I love that kinda gameplay, where you can return to areas once you have new abilities, to uncover more.”
2. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Poor old Link didn’t have the best of starts when Nintendo unveiled The Wind Waker. Many fans voiced their disappointment over the cel-shaded art style, which was a huge contrast compared to the tech footage Nintendo released a year earlier. If you’re not sure what I am on about then this video (http://www NULL.youtube NULL.com/watch?v=eEF9Utdu-L0) will explain it all for you. However, most of those cries of despair were soon vanquished when players got to enter the flooded world of Hyrule. What they found was one of the more unique and epic stories in the Zelda series, accompanied by one of the best soundtracks in its history. A true gem of a game.
David Fernandes – “One of the best Zelda games to date.”
