We all love Nintendo Direct right? Be it the quirky nature of absolutely everything that happens in the show, or the fact that for the first time ever we're getting regular news from Nintendo, there's something for everyone in the shows. And just what is it with staring at fruit and veg?

Nintendo Direct has been an amazing resource this year for fans, and to celebrate a big year for the show, I got the opportunity to look back at the show's ten best moments. And believe me, it was hard to just pick ten!

From the almighty Non-Specific Action Figure, to Iwata's unboxing video, to the vocal powerhouse of Satoru Shibata singing Call Me Maybe, it has been a brilliant year for Nintendo, and one that will hopefully continue well into the future. After all, we all want to see more of Lego Iwata!
