The lights are on
Other than maybe Sega I can't think of another gaming company that creates as many diverse games as Nintendo. Although some of their biggest franchises are platformers they have actually branched out in to a lot of different genres, from strategy to RPGs and even racing games. So, which is your favourite Nintendo franchise? My pick is The Legend of Zelda because, outside from being a fantastic franchise of games, it was the Zelda games that really got me to take gaming seriously, and they are the reason I am the gamer I am today.
Agree wtih you, The Legend of Zelda, very variated gameplay and good series indeed.
For me, it's a tie between Metroid and Zelda, with Mario not too far behind.
wow Zelda Links Awakening for GB was my first ever video game.. and well here i am 20 yrs later...enough said. I would have to say its almost too difficult urggg
Mario. Then Zelda, Then Kirby... theirs so many!

Pokemon. Obviously. Pokemon's the reason I buy my Nintendo systems. I still enjoy the other franchises, but Pokemon is what forces me to buy the systems.
@GerardoExber: Yeah I think there's more variety in a Zelda game then there is in any other Nintendo game.
@KaibasCharizard: One thing you can say about Pokemon is that there's nothing else like it. I'm a huge fan of the series and have been with it since gen one.
@Solarplex: Link's Awakening is my all-time favourite portable video game. Hands down.
@kungfubunny9876: Isn't Super Metroid your favourite Metroid game?
@widdowson91 It most certainly is, mate :)
@kungfubunny9876: Not a bad choice :P I'm personally torn between Super Metroid and Metroid Prime, but because Prime was my first experience with the series I usually choose that as my favourite.
Pokemon, Kirby, Mario and the DKC games. Never really got into Metroid and the Zelda games were hit or miss with me but I really liked Ocarina. Should've played more of Twilight and Skyward Sword was good of what I played, need to play that again.
My favorite franchise is Fire Emblem. Love RPGs and turn based strategy!
@E-Dudnetnin: The only problem with Fire Emblem is the fact that half the series has never been localised for western audiences.
Legend of Zelda or Mother. I like Zelda because they add a new feature into every new installment. My love of Earthbound is based purely off of nostalgia. Overall Zelda is the better franchise.
