Welcome back those of you who read the last part of the countdown, we are down to the last 20 games from Official Nintendo Magazine’s top 50 games of the decade and the games are only getting better, if you are a Nintendo fan. Pokémon Platinum is sitting pretty in the number 20 spot while The World Ends With You is just in front at number 19. Link is doing well with the handhelds as he holds the next two spots with The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks at number 18 and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass is number 17. Sonic shows up on the list at number 13 with Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, but once again it’s Mario who reigns over the 20-11 spots as he holds the final five, though Sonic did split them from all be in a row. Mario Kart DS sits at number 16, Super Smash Bros. Melee at number 15, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is number 14, New Super Mario Bros. Wii holds the number 12 spot and to cap of these ten at number 11 is Mario Kart Wii. It was an even split this time as five of the spots were handheld games and five were console games.
The countdown is almost over as these are the final 10 games, Okami on the Wii holds the 10th spot on the countdown, while Metroid Prime take two spots with Metroid Prime Trilogy taking the number 9 spot Metroid Prime holding the number 8 spot. Resident Evil 4 for the GameCube makes the list at number 7 and Pokémon Gold/Silver make it in at number 6. Three of the final five spots go to Link and Zelda with as number 5 goes to The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on the N64, number 4 to The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on the Wii, and finally the number 3 spot to The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker on the GameCube. But sadly for Link it would be that plumber we all know and love that reigns supreme with the number 2 spot going to Super Smash Bros. Brawl Wii, which Mario could share with Link, but the number 1 spot and the greatest Nintendo game of the decade as voted by the ONM readers is Super Mario Galaxy on the Nintendo Wii.
Well that’s it for the top 50. So what do you all think? Do you agree with the order of the games? Is Super Mario Galaxy the best game of the decade when it comes to the Nintendo systems?
