Last time, ascending order:
 

Let's fix this list.
BotW is the best game ever, and other Zeldas suffer by comparison, so both OoT and TP take a hit; although without the dungeon-and-item approach, there's still room for more 'traditional Zeldas' that do that really well in my top ten.
MK8D pushes MK8 up a couple of slots too.
Finally, SSBU is grand, but I've forgotten about it already now that the Wii U's out of sight. It drops a place, as I'll never forget Ghost Trick.

New list:
  • Meteos
  • OoT and OoT3D combined
  • SSBU
  • Ghost Trick
  • MK8 and MK8D combined
  • Xenoblade
  • Twilight Princess
  • Metroid Prime
  • Paper Mario TTYD
  • Breath of the Motherflippin' Wiiiiild


Meteos has nearly fallen off the bottom! Sad (Well, top I suppose.)

YES. I've just done pretty much what you did with BOTW and MK8D. Thumbs Up!

Another small change.  Sadly I have to kick Xenoblade out of my top ten altogether: while the improvements XC2 has brought to the recipe mean I wouldn't want to go back to 1 so much, 2 (while excellent) is too flawed to make my ten very top games in all of ever.  In its place is an utterly unsurprising game.

Also SSBU > Ghost Trick again.  I miss the ol' Smashers greatly, I do.
  • Meteos =
  • OoT and OoT3D combined =
  • Ghost Trick ↓
  • SSBU ↑
  • MK8 and MK8D combined =
  • Twilight Princess ↓
  • Metroid Prime ↓
  • Paper Mario TTYD ↓
  • Mario Odyssey !
  • Breath of the Wild =

Everyone's said it, but I'll do it again: the Switch has had a blinding, blinding first year on sale.

What's in it will change places, but I don't think my top ten would be different from what I stuck up on here three years ago. Crazy Taxi isn't moving, ever, but the rest could switch about. My top twenty-five would likely be very different though, with stuff like Super Mario Odyssey, Sonic Mania and Breath of the Wild surely be in for a shout.

Edit: bollocks to it, I gave it a go:

1. Crazy Taxi

2. Banjo-Kazooie

3. F-Zero X

4. Super Mario 64

5. Super Mario Galaxy

6. Animal Crossing: New Leaf

7. Wii Sports

8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

9. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

10. Super Mario Odyssey

11. Hogs of War

12. Bishi Bashi Special

13. Mario Kart 64

14. Super Monkey Ball

15. OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast

16. Sonic Mania

17. WarioWare Inc: Minigame Mania

18. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

19. WWF No Mercy

20. Sonic 3 & Knuckles

21. NiGHTS: Journey into Dreams

22. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

23. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile

24. Kirby’s Epic Yarn

25. Ridge Racer Type 4

Looking at Cappa's list it's like the opposite of mine as it's game games (if that makes sense) where mine is about the story and can certainly see why he didn't like Xenoblade 2.

Updating the old list, where it is one entry per series but I do cheat:

1. Mass Effect Trilogy (PS3)
2. Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection (PS3)
3. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker Limited Edition (Cube)
4. Shenmue II (Xbox)
5. Super Mario 64 (N64)
6. Bioshock: The Collection (PS4)
7. Halo: The Master Chief Collection (XBONE)
8. Resident Evil 2 (DC)
NEW The Telltale Mega Collection (PS4)
10. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi Island (SNES)
11. Sonic The Hedgehog Pocket Adventure (NGPC)
12. Soul Calibur (DC)
13. Jade Empire (Xbox)
NEW Persona 5 (PS4)
15. Super Smash Bros Melee (Cube)
16. Team Ico Collection (PS3)
17. Beyond Good & Evil (Cube)
18. Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection (PS4)
19. The Last of Us: Remastered (PS4)
20. Journey Collectors Edition (PS4)
21. Final Fantasy IX (PS4)
22. Silent Hill Collection (PS2)
23. SEGA Mega Drive Ultimate Collection (PS3)
24. Catherine (PS3)
NEW Overwatch (PS4)

After playing the N.Sane Trilogy I'm ditching Crash and Persona 5 is coming in.
We got an updated Telltale Collection which has 10 games in it and I'm swapping the collections over.
I've got rid of Goldeneye and put in Overwatch at 25

Odyssey better in the Cappa list than Sonic Mania and Hogs of War?  High praise indeed!

Putting collections in lists is proper Alan Partridge "Best of The Beatles" patter. That top 25 has about 380 games in it.

So much of Hogs of War's undeniable greatness is from the voice acting, and Sonic Mania - while outstanding - just doesn't have as much to it as Odyssey does.

Sure does and as I was following the unofficial rule Drunka set with one game per series and does make the list more interesting than a bunch of Zelda's.

Which made it a hard choice for something like Zelda as I would put both Wind Waker and OoT on a Top 25 for instance, as I didn't play OoT till Wind Waker came out and with that being my first experience with Zelda, I always have a fondness for that Limited Edition that I instantly thought I'd put that on the list which just led to me just cheating.

I reckon others might feel the same about Super Mario All-Stars if their first system was a SNES and that was the first experience with Mario.

In that case, my favourite game of all time is that 256-in-1 Game Boy Advance cartridge that my mate Dave let me borrow after his holiday in Hong Kong. 👍

I did think someone after would just say emulators (mine are all official releases which I do own a few of them) but like I said about All-Stars I know people would put that on some lists, I think it was even on the Mario Vote you ran a few years ago.

Alright, I'm gonna have another go. This is straight off the bonce, so I'm sure it'll be subject to change within ten minutes of writing it.

10 ARMS
9 Metal Gear Solid 3
8 Pikmin
7 Ghost Trick
6 Monster Hunter XX
5 Bayonetta
4 Splatoon 2
3 Super Mario Odyssey
2 Dark Souls
1 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Part of me was tempted to keep Skyward Sword and Mario Galaxy instead of BOTW and Odyssey, but that would have just been me being deliberately different. I've gone with Double Cross as its the Monster Hunter I've put the most hours into, and I love playing Monster Hunter on the Switch, but I could easily say 4U or World are the better game on another day.

At the top there it gets a little shaky. ARMS is the game I'm currently loving and itching to play, but maybe another day a Halo might sneak in there, or Mass Effect. I liked the experience with those series, but I feel like they're done and dusted and locked in a little box in the past.

If you're gonna follow that rule, you can't then use a loophole to put in collections, it defies the point!

*Looks at previous top ten list*

Mine's unchanged, and honestly I don't see them changing any time soon, if ever. All of the games listed have reasons why they reign supreme above other entries in their franchises, and a large portion of them are there for emotional connections I cannot see ever being replicated (Persona 3, Tales of Xillia/2, and Danganronpa) or mechanical reasons that will also remain replicated (Pokemon Platinum, Fire Emblem fates). Breath of the Wild was a freak of nature in that it was so amazing it somehow broke into the list. A year later I'd still rank it that high too.

Still who knows, Nier Automata might press the right buttons.

Whereas I am an emotionless automaton, who culls favourite childhood games from his list ruthlessly because they don't stand up.

Well, I think I explained myself with the Wind Waker Limited Edtion and why I could understand something like Mario All-Stars making a list like this. A few other things like Metal Gear Collection helped me greatly, as I honestly don't know which one should be on my Top 25 and it would be that high either than with The Last of Us the Remaster goes in because it has Left Behind on it over the original PS3 release.

Oh if my list had anything to do with my childhood it'd be filled with Ocarina of Time, Crash Bandicoot 3, Spyro 2 and 3, and Solar Strike.  Childhood nostalgia played very little part in my list, in a lot of cases it was because they were the right thing at the right time.  Like Persona 3 whose themes reflected my mindset at the time extremely well.  

The only game that managed to hang from childhood to now is Majoras Mask, and that's more because as I aged I came to appreciate different aspects of the game.  Essentially it aged with me.  

Basically what I'm saying is it's less nostalgia and more because I myself have changed in the years between when I played most of that list and who I am now.  Nowadays I don't get as into hobbies as I once did (despite what my occasional ravings might imply), and that means I'm less likely to get swept up in a game, its story and world, and so on.  So the chances for something to come along and blow my socks off like a lot of my top ten has diminished.

Fair enough. I also try to allow for age and free time in my scores, although I'm sure I don't entirely succeed! (What's Solar Strike?)

It's been over two years since I've looked at my list... it's time for a revision.

The Old List, with comments in bold:
 

And now, the new list!

1: Mother 3 (-)
2: The World Ends With You (-)
3: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (NEW)
4: Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy (UP 2)
5: Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS (NEW)
6: Super Mario Odyssey (NEW)
7: Super Mario Galaxy (-)
8: Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin (UP Cool
9: The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (DOWN 5)
10: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (-)
11: Persona 5 (NEW)
12: To The Moon (UP 1)
13: Persona 4 (DOWN 2)
14: Civilization V (DOWN 5)
15: Lost Odyssey (DOWN 3)
16: Fallout 3 (DOWN 13)
17: Final Fantasy XV (NEW)
18: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (NEW)
19: Phoenix Wright: Spirit of Justice (NEW)
20: Monster Hunter Generations (NEW)
21: Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations (NEW)
22: Dark Souls (DOWN 14)
23: Life is Strange (NEW)
24: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (NEW)
25: Overwatch (NEW)

Some of these games I've either replayed recently and loved or I've looked upon them either more fondly or less favourably as the years have gone on. I suspect this will look different in a couple of years once more!

Surprised to see FFXV, pleased to see Overwatch and I think if I didn't go for the Telltale Collection, Life is Strange would have made my Top 25.

And you were super into it for a while there. Like, you were "Jay the Undertale Guy".

I'm interested to hear why Jak & Daxter went up to fourth. Did you play it again on PS4? FYI, I thought about putting it on my list - I'd agree that it's one of the best 3D platformers ever.

Funny thing about Undertale, it was all the rage a couple of years back but I hardly ever hear it mentioned now, and the times I do see it mentioned it's (rightfully) in threads talking about awesome old school style soundtrack themes.

I really liked FFXV and I'm dead keen to replay it now that all the DLC is out too.

Absolutely.

I mean, I really liked it at the time but it's definitely not as groundbreaking or revolutionary as I first made it out to be. It's emulating a lot of things that the Mother series did already in regards to its writing - Balla's on the money saying it was me pining for more Mother games. It was fun and is probably nestling just outside the top 25, but I was fucking insane putting in my top 5.

Yeah, I replayed it on PS4, got the platinum, did the lot. I replay it once every couple of years or so and I used to try and finish it as quickly as I can. I love the movement in that game - compared to other 3D platformers Jak is a treat to control and it's very fair in regards to its difficulty. I was actually a bit sad that they turned the series into GTA-lite in later installments.

It was the indie game du jour back at the tail end of 2015 - probably why it charted so highly for me back then!

I'm taking a punt here, but I'm reckoning that a lot of UT's initial raves were because of the different things it did with the genre. Choices playing out in unexpected ways and such. Go in unspoiled and they probably seem genuinely special. These days it's broken down into three routes, and everybody knows the twists.

Soundtrack does indeed remain belting though.

Definitely sounds like a top nostalgia game. Like me and Mario Land.

I need to go back to FFXV as well, seeing all the current season DLC.

I reckon Doki Doki Literature Club will very much become the new Undertale in a few years we will all forgotten about it.
