We gaming fans always have a blast talking about our favorite experiences in the lovely worlds of Nintendo. On this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, we sat down to talk about our favorite Nintendo games and what makes them just so special.

The discussion was a whopping forty minutes long, so we're breaking it down into two pieces for YouTube, one for the bona fide top five, and one for our honorable mentions—the games that didn't quite crack our lists, but we love too much to ignore.

The following lists are our individual honorable mentions that we wanted to shout out towards and provide some insight on before digging into our top five games. If you don't have time to watch the full discussion, you can glimpse over this list to see what kinds of content you might fancy, and come back later to watch the video and hear our full thoughts on these games. And be sure to check out the second part of the discussion, where we dedicate a ton of time to reflect on outstanding games like Zelda, Pokémon GSC, and more.
