    It's been 25 years to the day since we first saw the little balloon creature known as Kirby make his way onto Gameboy systems in japan. Kirby's Dreamland went on to sell five million copies and quickly became an iconic character in Nintendo history.

    Kirby's Dreamland was actually my first Gameboy game. I'll never forget those days of only getting a game every so often and spending hours upon hours replaying it to get higher scores and try to complete it faster. I adored the music and the silly art style and have the fondest memories of Dreamland today.

    And I can't even begin to imagine the hours I've spent on the dreamland stage in every the iteration of Smash Bros over the years. Or the iconic music of the fountain of dreams stage in Super Smash Bros Melee.

    Today we celebrate everything Kirby has to offer! Gorge yourself on food today, wear your favorite smash bros characters hat like you just stole their power, listen to the bouncy energetic music and enjoy a Kirby game!

    What's your favorite Kirby game and what memories do you have to share with Kirby over the years?

    Nightmare in dreamland.
    GBA remake of the original NES one.

    I've spend so much time playing that game.

    Definitely would have to be Super Star! The multiplayer parts were always fun, and I loved how it was kind of like a bunch of games all in one. Dreamland 2 was my first Kirby game, and first GameBoy game, though, and I have fond memories of it.

    Kirby's Adventure on Wii. I wish I'd figure out how the heck Kirby's Air Ride is supposed to be played, yeah, there are video tutorials explaining but it's still hard to be good at it.

    It's piss easy.
    If I could do it as a small kid (constantly get Good and Great on it) you could do it as well.
    Unless you're talking about the GC version then eh ;'D

    Wouldn't you like to know?
    Happy birthday pink puff!
    My first and favorite kirby game would have to be Kirby & the Amazing Mirror. I spent countless hours trying to explore all the routes as a kid, and was enjoyed it to the fullest being able to play the game with my friends.

    Nightmare in Dreamland. I remember the commercial with the song really well. Amazing Mirror had Smash Kirby, which is really cool, though.

    Yep, same as well. I played a boatload of Kirby's Dreamland 2 but I think I might have just played it too much haha. But when I got my hands on Knightmare in Dreamland my mind was blown. I loved it so much.

    That and Super Star.
    Didn't overly like the last game though.

    Kirby will always be among my top 3 favourite Nintendo franchises, alongside Pokemon and Metroid.

    I must say that the 3DS versions and the DS versions of Kirby are quite alright but eh.
    Nothing beats Nightmare in Dreamland tho.

    Kirby's Dream Land 3, Super Star (Snes and DS versions), are among the favorite of mine in the series :P Nightmare in Dream Land is also amazing :D

    Happy birthday to kirby! I absolutely adore this pink balloon games, especially since my first kirby game was the crystal shards d:

    Btw, isn't it Dream Land? Dreamland seems misspelled.

    I really liked Robobot. It was a pleasant surprise to how much I actually really liked it.

    Robobot was quite good, challenging at some points.

    Does anyone else think that releasing Kirby-lingerie is kind of a weird move?

    I played the ever loving shit out of the Wii kirby game. I loved that game to death, probably beat it 5 times by now. I really liked Nightmare in Dreamland and Kirby Super Star.
