It is such adorable game. The music makes the game more cheerfully and it makes it a tense/fun game's.

Game play was fun, the characters was fun and it was so cute.

1. Halo 3
Do I even have a reason to make this my #1?

2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
If you could take epicness, realism, and all out amazingness into a game, this would be it.

3. Rock Band
For me, this game is both amazingly fun and slightly nostalgic. Best musical game of all time.

4. Halo: Reach
The second I mentioned Halo 3, you knew this would be on here. One word for this one: EPIC.

5. Call of Duty: Black Ops
Despite MAJOR glitches in multiplayer, an amazing game in both story and multiplayer.

6. Super Mario 64 DS
When I play the original, I get nostalgia from this game; I'm not old enough to find the original very nostalgic.
Besides nostalgia, the game itself is ridiculously fun.

7. Halo 2
This one is only on the list because of its ridiculous fun multiplayer.

8. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
This game wasted WAY too much of my time two summers ago. That is all that I need to say.

9. Super Mario Galaxy
Although I don't own this game, I LOVE it! Mario epicness at its top.

10. Call of Duty: World at War's Nazi Zombies
Tip: Don't play this game in the middle of the night... enough said.

2. Halo Reach
3. Halo 3 ODST
4. Pokemon Heartgold
5. Pokemon Diamond
6. Super Mario Galaxy 2
7. Super Mario Galaxy
8. Donkey Kong Country Returns
9. Halo 3,2,CE
10. Wario Ware D.I.Y (Would've been Wind Waker if this was 10 ten(zelda) games
Some reasons:
1.The equivalent of Smash Bros. Brawl almost three years ago. (So, in other words, I could play this for the rest of my life)
2. Halo Math: H3+H3ODST= Halo Reach
3. Was harder than H3
4. 2 regions and Battle Frontier makes good games.
5. The game of which my strongest Pokemon come from. Torterra FTW.
6. Yoshi and a SM64 level? I'm in.
7. Redifined Mario for me.
8. Ah, the memories.
9. The first three define the series.
10. Creativity and choice.

1.Super mario 64. Made me a real gamer.
2.Metroid Prime Trilogy. Great compilation.
