1. Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards - Nintendo 64

This is always my favorite Kirby game. I loved the combinations you can make with two random power ups to get this one awesome power. Not only that, the levels are memorable, and the music is catchy making this a really fun game.

2. Kirby Super Star Ultra - Nintendo DS

This has a series of modes that each one plays differently. One is a race while another one you timed to get through, each is varied and fun to play. The DS version has acouple new modes that are really fun to play and increased replay valve. I like the ability where you have this power and you could make it a partner to help you out. I wonder if it will return in the next Kirby game.

3. Kirby's Adventure - Wii Virtual Console

This was the one that started his famous ability and what a memorable game. The abilities are great, the stages are fun, and did many thing that are normal in this series of now. This made the series a household name despite being released in the NES at 1992.

4. Kirby's Return to Dream Land - Nintendo Wii

This doesn't change alot other than the super ability where you use it to destroy countless enemies and environments, and swallow more than release a more powerful star to repel. However it is still a joy to play with memorable stages and the difficulty right for what the series always intended to make a game anyone play without being complex.

5. Kirby's Epic Yarn - Nintendo Wii

This is one interesting title. With a different art-style and gameplay, it still feels fun despite it being the more easier Kirby game in the series. Each level has its own charm with variety mixed in especially with the different power ups Kirby can transform to like a robot, and dolphin for instance. If you don't mind the difficulty, this is one game to try out.

6. Kirby's Dream Land 3 - Super famicom and SNES

This came out after the N64 release in 1997. This plays much like the second Dream Land with acouple of new animals to play. Not alot of powers up are in this one but that doesn't it stop it from being a fun game to play. Also I'm not going to lie, I don't care for graphics in general but I will said that this game's visuals at that time is pretty appealing to look at.

7. Kirby's Dream Land 2 - Game Boy

Having playing this one at the Dream Collection. This one is has the abilities back and the option of riding on animals which has different effects while riding and it uses your current power into it's own version. Combined with longer gameplay making this a fun game to play.

8. Kirby & The Amazing Mirror - Game Boy Advance

This one has you and 3 other Kirbys finding a way to save the mirror world. I recall having a good time with this with it's gameplay, the AI doesn't seen bad, and the map is pretty long. Maybe I give this one a replay later on.

9. Kirby Squeak Squad - Nintendo DS

I don't remember much about this one so I considering replaying this one some day.

10. Kirby's Dream Land - 3DS Virtual Console

This is the more weaker one granted being the first game in the series. This one doesn't have his ability to swallow and getting whatever's power. However this is a decent short start to a series that show promise back then.

Nice read! I can tell you picked up the recent compilation.

Kirby & the Amazing Mirror for me, though I also really like Kirby's Dream Land 2. When you so happen to play The Amazing Mirror again, would you let me know what you think of it? It'd be cool to read a familiar Listal users' opinion. ;]

So happy to see this list! Kirby is arguably the most under appreciated franchise in gaming, imho.

Personally I think the first Kirby game is the strongest; I don't know what it is about the follow-ups but I never enjoy them as much.

Good list. If you ever play Epic Yarn it'll be in your top 3 for sure. That game is so addictive!

My thoughts on 6 of these games:

Kirby's Dream Land - Simple and straightforward, I must say.
Kirby's Adventure - Fun and addictive; still holds up after 20 years.
Kirby's Dream Land 2 - Better than the first, but I'm still stuck on the infuriating last level of Red Canyon.
Kirby Super Star (both versions)- The SNES version is fun, as was he DS version, although the latter was made a bit too hard later on.
Kirby's Dream Land 3 - Thankfully more merciful than the second, and the best of the Dream Land games.
Kirby 64 - Even better than the Dream Land games, and the best Kirby game since Adventure.

Wow... I'm completely the opposite on this one. I played most of the immediate follow-ups to the original (2, Adventure and even Magic Mirror) and none of those games can dethrone the first game for me.

Yeah, it's probably a case of nostalgia goggles... I know the first game isn't perfect - it is too short and too easy - but I'm always so disappointed with other Kirby games when I play them... I don't know why. But seriously - I would LOVE to find a Kirby game that dethrones the original in my personal hierarchy.
