    Link to the past 20-30 hours? Nonsense. Even on your first playthrough not knowing where anything is MIGHT take 8-10 hours if you’re really taking your time. The game can be beat in 3-4 hours with all collectibles and you don’t need to be some masterful speed runner to manage that. I was doing it as a kid and I’m not very good at video games.

    It’s an amazing game but I often see it described like it’s some sort of mega epic when it’s something most average people could clear in an afternoon or two.

    Never watched this video, I predicted Super Mario World at #1! And LITERALLY just as I was typing this, Super Mario World was #2? I’m actually surprised by WatchMojo this time! After that though I knew a Zelda game was #1 and I’m not surprised by that at all! Also no Kirby Super Star? Not even an honorable mention? And I would but the whole Super Nintendo DK Country trilogy in 1 spot! Again, only the Super Nintendo ones, for anyone who misread that!

    “No other video game console even comes CLOSE to the SNES. I mean, forget about it just winning the 16-bit war with the Genesis (which it absolutely did), it just crushes everything else that was ever released. The amount of all-time great games on this list is just absurd. It has the best platformers, the best JRPGS, the best exclusives, the best versions of the two best fighting games of the 90s, Nintendo worked with developers to push it’s technology to the absolute limit (Donkey Kong Country, Star Fox, Killer Instinct, Super Mario RPG) while it’s competitor was selling an entire other system to catch up. The graphics and gameplay hold up far better than it’s predecessor (the NES) or the it’s immediate successor (the N64) because the capability of 16-bit graphics was perfect for the bright, cartoon pixels of most of the games. The look never goes out of style. The controller is essentially perfect. Just like the system.

    I remember getting my GameCube pretty late in its lifespan, 2005. My seventh birthday happened to fall on that weekend and my parents decided to go all out for it, inviting my friends and cousins over. We had music playing, party games, a moonwalk and slide, it was great. I was in the moonwalk when my cousin spoiled the gift that she and her mom got for me, and sure enough, this was the spoiler. I was psyched from hearing this, but pretended she never told me so as to not ruin the surprise. Sure enough, it was time for presents and was dumbfounded at the sight of the console. I gazed upon the box, yelled out “GAMECUBE!!” while everyone crowded around to check out the console and what games I got with it.
    I’ll never forget that day.
