Happy to see that this poll got to a point where 6 was beating 9. It's shameful that 10 is beating 7 though.

I did try and watch it. Got through like the first 10 minutes. I was not capable of opening my heart enough.
@turambar: Well we're certainly in agreement there. Though I'd definitely put a few games between 2 and 8, depending on whether we're talking about the battle system or the progression mechanics.
@brodehouse: Hell yeah Donkey Kong Country!
@chiablo: Correction; whatever the first Final Fantasy you played between 10-15 is your favorite. My favorite came out when I was 8 but I didn't play it until I was 13 or 14.
I played my favorite Final Fantasy's when I was like 7. The ones I played for the first time between the ages of ten and fifteen were 10, 10-2, 11, and 12, and I hated all of them but 10, which I still didn't like very much at the time.
@turambar: Which is the worst mechanically then?
Like I said in the other thread about this, we didn't know about the new Mario this time last year. Who knows what games they'll have next holiday? It's really just a math problem. As the number of games grows and the hardware gets cheaper, a purchase starts to make sense for more and more people. It will never be a sales juggernaut, but it can't get any worse than it is.
If Nintendo were smart they'd pull a Vita with the Wii U. Make it an enticing value proposition for 3ds owners. Some work on Virtual Console would go a long way I think. Start with a sync feature that allows you to play VC games on either the Wii U or the 3ds, with saves transferring easily between the two. Then get out all of the old games that were on the Wii, and then some, as quickly as possible. Look at how much the VC release got people talking about Earthbound. Maybe some way to play 3ds games on a tv (though I'm certain they'd look like garbage that way). If they work on value adds like that, try and get another price cut in, and announce a brand new, awesome looking Zelda then I think a lot more people would be interested in buying a Wii U.
