About This Quiz

From "Kirby" and "Dr. Mario" to "Animal Crossing" and "Balloon Fight," the Nintendo company has released a wide variety of epic games across many types of consoles. Some of these test your problem-solving skills, like "Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels" and "The Legend of Zelda." But some games are for pure fun and entertainment, like "Pro Wrestling," "Punch-Out!!" and "Soccer." So let us ask you this: why is your favorite Nintendo game your #1 pick?

Is it because you get to explore the strange world of Planet Zebes in "Metroid: Zero Mission?" Or do you like to defeat your enemies on a grid battlefield in "Fire Emblem: Awakening?" Some games, like "NES Remix," also feature many types of classic games. Examples include "Excitebike," "Ice Climber" and "Urban Champion." And if you're familiar with the classic "Mario" games, then you probably love spin-offs like "Wario Land 2," "Yoshi's Island" and "Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker." No matter what your favorite game is, Nintendo has allowed gamers to explore new worlds, defeat difficult opponents and maybe play a little golf like in "Mario Golf: World Tour."
