'Luigi's Mansion' (Gamecube, 3DS)

When Mario and his friends end up trapped in a spooky mansion, it's up to his brother Luigi to come to the rescue. Armed with his trusty Poltergust vacuum, Luigi must explore the manor, uncover its many secrets, and suck up any specter that tries to spook him. Luigi is an endearing protagonist. Whether he's humming along with the game's soundtrack or consoling a frightened toad, Luigi shows that he's a just as capable, if not more charismatic, leading man than his more famous brother.
