This poll is now closed.
PLEASE READ RULES BEFORE POSTING!

Rules: Every single day several people complain even though I fully explain the rules for these polls in the first post.
1. Only games published by Nintendo are considered, no third party published games.
2. The release dates the polls are based on are NORTH AMERICAN release dates. Not Japan. 99% of us are not from Japan so it would not make sense to use Japanese release dates. I realize some of us are from Europe, but the majority are North American.
3. Regarding REMAKES AND PORTS: I have not included any in the polls so far and I have always explained my reasons for doing so. I think it's more fun to only have games be eligible the year they first come out. However, a user pointed out that some remakes are like completely new games, so from now on they will be considered on a case by case basis. Just remember that original games are given the priority to be included in the poll first, but if the remake is popular enough it will probably appear.
4. WHY ISN'T (insert obscure or unpopular Nintendo series) IN THIS POLL? There can only be ten options in a GameFAQs poll. I try my best to include the ten that have the highest chance of winning. I try to include some of the lesser-known series at least once and see how they do. If they don't get votes (Mario Golf, Golden Sun), they most likely won't appear again unless it's a really popular game.
5. Please remember that this is for FUN!!!! There's no need to flip out if you disagree with the rules. If you think you have a valid argument for why I should change something, please leave a respectful comment and we'll work it out. Thank you for taking the time to read these rules. Have fun everybody!

Yesterday was an easy win for Super Mario Galaxy (164 votes), which won with the highest percentage so far. Today should be an even easier win for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I just wanna let everyone know that soon all the winners will be facing off against each other, which should be very exciting to see!

Previous winners:
2000- Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (42.21%)
2001- Super Smash Bros. Melee (39.46%)
2002- Metroid Prime (39.55%)
2003- Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (43.93%)
2004- Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (47.42%)
2005- Pokemon Emerald (23.24%)

Brawl is my 2nd favorite Nintendo game of that decade, only topped by Majora's Mask. So yeah, easy choice.

It pains me to say it, but Brawl takes the cake. Strip the game off to leave behind an incredible soundtrack, first of all.

Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.

Don't underestimate the power of Mario Kart. It might give Smash a run for its money.

That said, I think MKWii is a mediocre entry in the series, and that Super Smash Bros Brawl blows it out of the water. So I vote Brawl. Kirby Super Star Ultra is a very close second to me.

+1

I think MK7 is a much better game than MK Wii as well.

This is what 2008 had to offer? Wow, what a subpar year. I mean, I absolutely love Brawl (myfavorite video game ever) and I love Mario kart, but outside of those 2 it seems pretty barren.

2009 was pretty incredible and made up for it.
