    Of all the great Nintendo franchises (Mario, Zelda, Metroid, etc.) which is your favorite and why?
    Mine would have to be Mario just because hes timeless, everyone knows who he is whether they game or not, and anyone can pick up a Mario game and enjoy/appreciate it. Just interested to see what others think.

    I would go with Zelda.
    Mario is a close second.

    Mario I can play the original, 3, and world again and again but, Metroid and Zelda I play once and I don't play them again for ages.

    I agree 100%. The first time through Zelda is incredible and I enjoy it more than Mario. Also i look forward to the release of the next Zelda game more, but after you have beaten it, it loses its edge. The whole reason i like Zelda so much is for the story line and the puzzles. Once I know what is going to happen and how to do it i pretty much retire the game. Mario i can play over and over and over.

    Mario does have the best replay value than any other Nintendo game.

    Yeh mario is a cool character. You can put him ( and his friends and enemys ) in any type of game and it will still be fun haha.

    I do also like the advance wars series though

    I would also have to go with The Legend of Zelda, but the Metroid series is very close behind.

    Zelda gets my vote because of the depth, but Mario really is a close second. And to me, Metroid is basically Zelda in the future with more powerful weapons...gotta love it though!

    ZELDA!!!

    if zelda was more frequently released like mario games then it would be the best. but mario games are'nt as good. except for sunshine, galaxy and 64. those are amazing.

    it's tough, but i would have to say mario, simply because it's a timeless classic.

    Mario
    Donkey Kong (DKC 1,2,3 and 64 really)
    Metroid
    Zelda

    Don't get me wrong though. I love all 4. Just i love some more than others.

    Oh and when a third Pikmin or Animal Crossing comes out, they'll probably move ahead of Donkey Kong (It takes 3 to make a franchise IMO)

    In this order:

    1. Metroid
    2. Mario
    3. Zelda

    I was never really a Zelda or Metroid fan (I haven't been a Zelda fan since the days of the GameBoy Color, and that was when I played Oracle of Seasons and Link's Awakening DX. I disliked the 2d Metroid games up until I played Metroid Prime Hunters and went back to play Zero Mission.. both were great) but Metroid Prime Hunters definitely got me into the Metroid series, so I knew what to expect with Prime 3. Twilight Princess was my first 3d Zelda, so most of the time I stumbled around, purposeless. I only recently discovered how amazing the game was and swiftly smashed my way through the last 4 dungeons and beat the game.

    Metal Gear!

    Just kidding...

    For me it's a toss up between Zelda and Mario.

    im gonna say Kirby is the best IMO, very underrated on under the radar. ive just always enjoyed every kirby game released, HAL has never dissapointed me. Next to that i'll go with Mario, just because its been a very versitle franchise, from puzzle, to action, to adventure, platform and RPG.

    and kirby spans a library from Nes, to Gameboy, to DS and soon to be wii...i hope.

    count em, 17 titles....20 if u count smash bros for N64, GCN and Brawl
