Today, I’m reaching for a fun hypothetical: if you had to describe your taste in Nintendo games to someone, and could only do so by showing them three games, which three would you choose? You can pick your three favorites, three that show a nice variety in your taste, or anything else: the choice is yours.
I would personally pick Super Mario Sunshine, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, and Star Fox 64. Super Mario Sunshine is my favorite Nintendo game, so it has to be here. It demonstrates my love for 3D platformers and, along with my next pick, for the GameCube era. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker takes a spot as my favorite The Legend of Zelda title. The Legend of Zelda is one of my favorite series of all time, so like Super Mario, it needs a title here on that status alone. Finally, Star Fox 64 is another favorite of mine, and for a long time as a kid, it was my favorite game. I still play it pretty often today – it might be my most played Nintendo game, even – so I think it kind of needs a spot here.
