Once every so often, a game comes along that makes everyone sit up and take notice whist simultaneously picking our jaws up from the floor. It’s been a while since any game has had this effect on me so I thought, with Wii U launching, now would be a good time to take a look back at the ten games that knocked our collective socks off.
But before the comments section is filled with bile and vitriol, please keep in mind that this is by no means the definitive list or final word on the subject. These are simply the ten games that made a lasting impression on me. So, my constant readers, take my hand, steel yourself against the darkness, ignore the giggling ghosts that watch from the shadows, and accompany me on a journey through the cavernous, dusty recesses of Nintendo history.
