5. Ace Attorney Trilogy (which I haven't completely finished yet but i'm ranking it anyway)
6. Super Smash Bros. for 3DS

I couldn't do them in order, but they are

1. Mario Kart DS
2. Mario Party DS
3. Wii Sports: Resort
4. Yoshi's Woolly World
5. Wipeout: The Game
6. Smash Hit
7. Geometry Dash
8. Tomodachi Life
9. Mario Party 3
10. Wii Play

I don't remember a lot of games that I played >_>
 

Dr. Baby Luigi

Mushroom Kingdom's Most Adorable Doctor
1. Garry's Mod
2. Left 4 Dead 2 (it's built for modding so I have to take mods into account)
3. Project M (mod of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, otherwise, vanilla Brawl sucks pretty hard)
4. Mario Kart Wii with mods (Mario Kart Wii w/o mods is probably not on this list)
5. Mario Kart 8
6. Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
7. Spore: Galactic Adventures (it's good even without mods, but mods make it so much better)
8. Rayman Legends
9. Super Smash Bros. Melee
10. Kirby Air Ride

Honorable mentions: Mario Party series, Kirby & the Amazing Mirror, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Mario Baseball series, New Super Mario Bros. Wii (has to be with mods), Rayman Origins, Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Bros. 2, Mario Kart 7

Keep in mind that this list is incredibly difficult to compile, just because some entries are omitted on this list doesn't mean that I don't absolutely adore playing them, and my listings will probably change the next day; compiling this list also compares apples to oranges, and I play them depending on my mood. These are games that simply make me smile and laugh the most, or just overall left an impact on me.
 

Uniju

Hazukashii serifu kinshi
1. Super Mario 64
2. Super Mario Sunshine
3. Super Mario Galaxy
4. Paper Mario
5. Splatoon
6. Animal Crossing

Core 'Shroom Staff
1. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/Super Smash Bros. Brawl*
2. Animal Crossing: New Leaf
3. Splatoon
4. 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors
5. Ace Attorney Trilogy
6. Rhythm Heaven DS
7. Pokemon series*
8. SMW: SMA2
9. WarioWare: Touched!
10. Luigi's Mansion 2


*Honestly just going to lump these together because Brawl was my favourite game, but Wii U filled that niche equally once it came out so I consider the two of them together to be my favourite I guess
*Same with Pokemon, I can't pick a favourite but I'll just list the ones that I like because I pretty much like them all the same: Yellow, Emerald, Platinum, HG&SS, B&W, Alpha Sapphire

I used to have a list that I would modify as I got new games, so I could sort them fairly accurately.

Then I nuked that list along with my hard drive. Mistakes were made.

Guess I'll have to make one off the top of my head. How horrifying!

1. Dota 2
2. Fallout 4
3. Fallout: New Vegas
4. Allegiance
5. Minecraft
6. Team Fortress 2
7. Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
8. XCOM: Enemy Unknown
9. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
10. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

This list is probably wrong, and there's games I forgot about but are really good that aren't on here. Oh well.

L - N - 1
No real order I guess:

-Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance(Ecclesia and Aria are cool too.)
-Metroid Prime 2: Echoes(the entire trilogy is cool)
-Pikmin 2
-Densetsu no Stafy 3
-Final Fantasy 5 I guess(6 and 7 are fine too)
-Wario Land: Shake it!
-Super Mario Galaxy 2(I liked it personally)
-Kirby Super Star Ultra

Yeah, I know I only put 8, and I like more than those vidyas, but I have played many that I wouldn't really know if I want to put in my favorites. FF5 is an iffy mention. I don't mention Gyakuten Kenji 2 in this list because I really like its story but I am a gameplay person.

You are filled with determination. (R/GD/TT)
Just off the top of my head...

1. Undertale (literally took a game design course instead of a creative writing course because of this game)
2. Alan Wake (really sates my brooding/angsty/dark-and-twisted needs + good writing)
3. Dead Rising (i have played way too many zombie games because of this series)
4. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door(probably not as good as i remember but the parts that hold up really hold up)
5. Dust: An Elysian Tale (omg this game is pretty and that's probably distracting me from its flaws but who cares it's really pretty)
6. Peace Walker (best stealth collect-a-thon and better than peace walker 2/phantom pain)
7. Resident Evil 4 (is it bad this is the only resident evil game i've played)
8. Saints Row 2 (the pc port had a horrendous framerate and i still completed it)
9. Fallout: New Vegas (it's weird how much i like this game when i modded it to the point bethesda barely had anything to do with it)
10. Wind Waker (glorious, glorious, adventure, especially with the bloom remake)
10. Thomas Was Alone (this game made me care about featureless blocks how is that possible


Honorable Mentions: Gunpoint, Limbo, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2, The Walking Dead, Portal 2, Brutal Legend, The Stanley Parable, Cave Story, Scribblenauts Unlimited, Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Heartbreak (nostalgia might be impacting my thoughts? nah)

Meh, I still think the developers hold the overall basic framework of the game so in theory, they still did most of the effort, even with the custom-created maps.
