I'm bumping this thread for one reason.


Mario and Luigi: Dream Team has gotta be the best of the whole Mario and Luigi series of all time. I've been playing the game for at least 5 days straight and I'm not even halfway through it! 


I'm jumping in 6 months later just to agree with this post. It's definitely the best game in the series, and my only issue would be the sudden difficulty spikes with the "Giant" battles (which, of course, were designed by a totally separate development team).


Also, thanks for the recommendations everyone, to all those games I haven't played yet.


Although I haven't played a wide enough variety of games to place a list of Top 10, I know for a fact that Kerbal Space Program is my current #1, as it has been for all of 2013.
