Nintendo makes great games. We all know that. However, they also make a ton of games, and not every one of them is a hit, and a few won’t correspond with our tastes too well at all. Sometimes, games from those latter two categories will surprise us all the same, and you end up loving a game you never expected to be all that enthralled with. Following that, what Nintendo game most exceeded your expectations? What surprised you so much about the game?

For me, the answer is Splatoon. While I was always pretty sure that Splatoon would be a pretty awesome game, I didn’t think it would line up too strongly with my tastes. I wasn’t a big fan of online multiplayer at the time of the first game’s release, after all. I ended up very surprised with the title – after trying it at a friend’s house, I ordered it immediately. I ended up really, really liking it, and I now hold it and Splatoon 2 dear as excellent online shooters that I can always pop in and enjoy for a few rounds.
