You know, I'd actually forgotten about those little awards you'd get at the end of each fight. Such a small feature that I'd love to see back in Smash 5.

@Shanks we have touched on why already when SMASH4 was placed

@Balla maybe me saying Melee was officially the best was a bit much but it has placed higher the SMASH4, that might be because it's the better game (which it is) or that it has more Iwataness to it.

I'd wager it's the Iwata-ness that's got it a higher position, which is fine, given the nature of the thread!

Now the worry sets in as I wait for a certain game to appear, if it doesn't I'll be sorely disappointed in you all.

I don't mean that and now you have probably mentioned Dark souls more times in non related threads than I have, so good job. Thumbs Up!

Well, I was wrong about the order, but I could still be right about the games - this was my first place. Grin Ugly as hell (and that's just Colin), it did almost everything else right.

I did forget MM when talking about 3D Zelda overworlds, but honestly, that's emblematic of how I feel about MM. Neutral

I did vote Twilight, a great game which was my 4th. So far I've seen my 6th, 3rd and now 4th. I can't really any more of mine really pop up unless Iwataness helps get one of them to a high place.

Still don't get how it's ugly, maybe a bit now but when it came out it looked great and that's what a lot of Zelda fans wanted after Wind Waker  to go back to a more realistic Ocarina of Time style.

But am pleased Nintendo has found a happy medium with art style with Zelda U.

This is one area where I and the rest of the voting public seem to have a misunderstanding. We're voting now, not in the past, so I vote on how good I feel the game is now, compared against other games that are out now.

I always try (not saying I succeed, SM64 the most obvious case) to vote without nostalgia, without rose-tinted specs. We're voting for "Iwata's Best Game", not "Iwata's Game that Gave You the Fluffiest Memories but is a Bit Rubbish Now". Obviously the voting conditions are open to interpretation (most obviously seen with some people using "Iwata-ness" as a voting factor, others not), but that's how I see 'em.

I didn't particularly like TP's art direction when it was released. Now, at time of voting, it's downright ugly.

Just put Twilight into the Cube, it looks fine to me considering the age etc but that might just because I play retro games now and again.

On the voting I think Earthbound will win and that's due to Iwata-ness, is it the best game now like you said how you voted, it's clearly no but is it the best the at iwata had a hand in most likely yes.

I actually find Twilight Princess to have a rugged beauty that hasn't aged badly at all.

EB, topple SMG? Nah, can't see it. I do think it'll place, and I disagree with your last clause(s? Not quite clear)... but I'll save that for when it pops up.

Best game Iwata actually directly provably had a hand in is probably still Mêlée. It's been outclassed (in my opinion, before that starts again), but GSC have been outclassed by themselves, and it's not EB.

Happy with Twilight Princess in 4th, even if it's not my favourite Zelda. It's a cracking game. Thumbs Up!

I never had a GameCube, so I only really played Melee once I was a Wii owner, and even then not very much. Neutral

Well. Both Jay and I were right out!

In retrospect, it's obvious that once TP ranked, WW would rank above it. WW remains the forum's favourite Zelda, after all (and GNamer submitted most of the votes). It's right on the opposite end of the spectrum to TP: glaring gameplay holes, yet an aesthetic so charming that many of them could be overlooked. It's not my favourite Zelda, but I can see why it ranked highly.

The question now is, what misses out? EB, or my second choice?

@Zero how did you never have a GameCube, did you at least mange to play most of its great library on Wii.

I wasn't sure we would see my 1st place, so are we all thinking 2nd & 1st is between Earthbound & SMG.

When I went to university I lost touch with gaming for a little while. This included the beginning of the GameCube era. By the time I was earning enough to get one, the Wii was coming around the corner, so I held off. I have played a few Cube games through the Wii, yes - everything GC-y on this list, and Viewtiful Joe, Pokémon XD...

I'm interested to see what the results would look like without the "Iwata emphasis".

If EB does beat my second choice into the top ten, I will go on a little bit of a rant. Suffice to say for now, I think that EB the TV show would have been brilliant. EB the game can "do one".
