Here's what Amazon had to say about Super Mario Maker:

"The game sparks players' creativity and lets imagination roam free--all while letting users share their creations with each other. Few games have ever given you that true freedom to 'create and play' and, in this sense, Nintendo captured the spirit of gaming."

Note that these are not the top ten best-selling games of 2015 on Amazon, but rather Amazon staff's picks.
