Sorry for coming out of nowhere but as a huge Nintendo fan (could even say Nintendo nerd) I have been following NinDB for years and more recently this forum, so I thought my project could be interesting for you guys.
After a good amount of research using several sources I am pretty confident that I have compiled an exhaustive list of every video game published by Nintendo until today. I decided to convert this list in a chronological video montage with real in-game footage (yes just for fun) and I already completed the two first parts that I published on Youtube.
I tried to follow specific rules to include a game in the list, those rules are in the video description.
My goal is not to get Youtube money out of it or whatever (it's not possible anyway because it's not my content) but I just thought it would be nice to share this with other Nintendo fans, and maybe have some feedback. Thx!

First off, welcome!
Excellent video, waaaay beyond my expectation! I've seen who-knows-how-many videos on YouTube with incomplete or outright wrong info, so seeing an actually accurate one that tries to cover the entirety of Nintendo's video game catalog is so amazing.
I do kind of wish to see a distinction between the NES and arcade versions to give a better feel of how they get ported to the other side, but it may end up feeling redundant.
Squish (Game & Watch): I have completely forgotten about this game. I've never seen it in action before. There are other games I don't recognise, but this one stands out for being an actual Nintendo IP.
Slalom, R.C. PRO-AM, Anticipation, all those Rare games: It's kind of weird to see Rare's NES games here. Rare Replay and interviews with Rare ex-employees gave me an impression that Rare self-published those, even though I know otherwise.
I also don't recall many of those games they published on behalf of other publishers. I'd say they don't really belong here; or they do, in the same category as games Nintendo published in select regions. In terms of IP ownership, the only difference between Bomberman Hero and Waialae Country Club: True Golf Classics is that the latter never reached Japan. Either way, it's not a Nintendo-owned game, but is Nintendo-published. (Just my take on this matter; don't take this as a request on anything.)
One nitpick is that I'm mildly annoyed at the lack of sound in some of the more obscure games, even though videos with sound is availalbe somewhere online. For example, a simple web search on F1 Race gives this video: LINK HERE, which does have sound.
Anyway, I really, really like it. Really looking forward to the next ones!
I totally understand the point of some games being locally published by Nintendo without being actual IPs, and I would rather have done an actual Nintendo-owned games list (would make it a bit shorter and even more relevant). Problem is that I did not find an accurate and complete list of these games, even on official sites it seems like some are missing, especially for the older games. Maybe I did not look hard enough. Also if I'm in doubt of the Nintendo ownership of some obscure game I'd rather it be included anyway, so at least with this rule no risk to miss one.
If you like, you're more than welcome to use some footage from some of my videos in your future compilation videos. ^^ I'm sorry about the phone quality, I don't have a Japanese Nintendo 3DS with capture board as of now. However, I have an EU 3DS that does but with a faulty battery (it still works but needs to be charged in for sufficiently long) and an EU regular DS with capture board.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
