Kirby 64 is one of my all time favorites along with Kirby Super Star. cool

In fact, I'm attempting a nutty run of Kirby 64 where I not only go never die, but I never go back and repeat a level to get every shard. May also be a speed run of sorts.

I've noticed, however, that non Kirby platform games are harder than the platformers. Need proof? I've only beaten Kirby's Pinball land once.

Air Ride was my favourite Gamecube racing game. Take that, Double Dash!!

My favorite has to be Crystal Shards. So many power combos!

Super Star Ultra has to be a close second, just for being sex on a handheld.

Kirby's Adventure was the very first game I 100%ed. Good times, gooood times.

Also I love both the original and Brawl remix of Zero-Two's theme.

My brother and I both agree that Kirby Super Star is by far the best Kirby game.

It has many things going for it. Drop-In-Drop-Out Multiplayer (at least in the original SNES version), lots of variations on the main gameplay but without changing it too much, tons of uses for the same ability (e.g. dash and hit attack, hit attack in midair, rapidly hit attack, etc. all produced different attacks, and many abilities had over 8 different attacks!), lots of abilities, a continuous life meter instead of just 6 HP units, and catchy music.

There really is no other Kirby game like it.

Watch movies with the Tropers!

Yeah, the only things associated with this series I haven't liked so far are Tiff and Tuff from the anime.

Nah. My friends and I agree that Kirby Air Ride is the best Kirby game ever. It supports both newbies (A is the only button! Sweet!) and pros (Swerve Star, Formula Star, Slick Star). City Trial is immensely fun, what with the building of your star, the crazy random events, and the general dickery involved with screwing each other over. And lastly, the fact that the checklists give you so much to do, and yet you have most options unlocked right at the start. It's a game that I can always just pick up and start playing.

Although Kirby games in general are endlessly replayable. I can't tell you how many times I've beaten Kirby and the Amazing Mirror or Kirby Super Star. They're just too much fun.

I have Squeak Squad and Nightmare in Dreamland. I love both, especially NiD's Meta Knight boss.

I have yet to play Squeak Squad. I heard that it's both easy and short. Alone, neither would be a real problem for me, but together they're kind of making me wary of buying it. =d

The only hard boss in Squeak Squad is Fake Kracko.

Amazing Mirror and Crystal Shards will forever be my favourites.

How is Epic Yarn? I really want to play it, but can't find a copy of it anywhere.

^^ Dark Daroach isn't a pushover either, but yeah, Mecha Kracko may be one of the hardest bosses in the series.

I remember playing Kirby's Dreamland 2 on the Game Boy and just LOVING all the animal friends.

Probably my second-favorite group of video game animal sidekicks, next to the animal buddies from Donkey Kong Country.

@ Electrivirus- YES! NEW KIRBY!

Here is a bigger, if not better, video.

I recommend standing away from your monitor by about 10 feet.

So they didn't drop that game after all.

Awesomesauce.

Addendum: While the Kirby series isn't exactly known for being hard, I hope it's not as easy as Kirby 64. Maybe not as difficult as The True Arena (though I would really love that) or Kirby's Adventure (goddamn you Meta Knight!), but still with a bit of a challenge.
