Mario Galaxy wins game of the decade award

I like Mario Galaxy. But I certainly don't think that it's game of the decade.

Mario Galaxy wins game of the decade award

Postby lordirongut » 18 Jan 2010, 17:39

My favorite Ninty game of the last decade was Metroid Prime 1.

Oh God. Way to bring the fanbabies out of hiding.

NINTENDO GAME, THAT IS.

They're still wrong. Mêlée's better.

I could agree with Galaxy- but rather oddly i actually really liked both battalion wars which don't rank highly at all.

That's a really tough call...

On the basis that the ONM 'GOTD' had to be on a Nintendo system then i would say it's got to be between:

Zelda:WW (GC)
Metroid Prime (GC)
Resident Evil 4 (GC)
Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
Okami (Wii)
Metroid Prime 3/Trilogy (Wii)
Resident Evil 4:WE (Wii)

The last 2 are on the list because even though the originals were already genre defining games, they were somehow improved upon with Wii controls to become the 'definitive' versions (Which should get more credit; the GC originals as without them the Wii versions wouldn't exist, or the Wii versions for making an existing game/experience even better?)

A Really tough call, but personally it's a tie between Okami & Resident Evil 4:WE. I really couldn't make choice

Personally I would pick 64 over Galaxy as it was the first in 3d. I have much more fonder memories of playing that for the first time. That probably goes without saying though. I don't think we'll agree 100% though anyway :)

If Mario 64 was released this decade it'd definitely win. Resident Evil 4 would have been the correct choice for decades best Nintendo game, that was all out action.

Kimoak.... Game of the Decade would imply within the years 2000-2009.

SM64 was 1996/97, although you could argue for the re-releases on DS or Virtual Console i guess.

I guess the point intended with 'GOTD' is that the source game/material (to be considerded for this decade) would have had to have been created within 2000-2009.

Okami then... Or RE4:WE, lol

It wasn't, but comments like that are... :roll:


I think Galaxy Could well be the one, but its very close with some of the others mentioned already. I think its worth bearing in mind that this is for Nintendo systems not in general, before all the rants come in from all angles. Hence why it was for official Nintendo magazine.

Well its the one and only choice, Galaxy is the best game ever made.

Only Galaxy 2 can top it.

Galaxy 2 game of the year again.

Eugh! how did this piece of medicore tosh get anything?

Does no one notice that every single mario game is the same damn thing over and over and over again?

Princess gets kidnapped
Plumber goes to search
plumber collects stars and coins
Plumber loses a brother along the way
Plumber rides something along the way (usually not the princess he's damn lost because she's too busy getting kidnapped again)
Plumber fights giant mutant turtle dinosaur thing
the end.

It's enough to make anyone who likes decent games sick!

Flame me if you want I don't give a toss.
