Outside of Ocarina of Time, I never got into the Zelda games, but not surprised to see most of its games dominating the top part of their list.

It's a Nintendo list done by Nintendo folks so first party games are going to be held above others.

Super Metroid > list. Should be number 1.
2 should be Link to the Past.
3 Final Fantasy 3/6
4 Ocarina of Time.

Ocarina of Time is definitely the best game of all time in my book, so .

Majora's Mask, Goldeneye, Conker's , Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and Pokemon (Red/Blue) should all be ALOT higher IMO.

and where's Perfect Dark ?? there's different things that can go into these ratings, two things would be impact and overall quality, since the latter pokemon games are higher than Red/Blue I'm a$suming they're ranking quality over impact

in that case there's no reason why Perfect Dark shouldn't be on there AND ahead of Goldeneye.
