This game gets number one because it’s had the same plot since 1985 that it has today. The Princess (Back then known as Princess Toadstool and not Peach) gets kidnapped by a lizard named Bowser…and, well, that’s it. As a plumber, you have to go rescue her again, and again, and again. Because apparently, she likes being kidnapped (Where are her precautions?). For a world as bizarre as the Mushroom Kingdom, you’d think there be some more explanation to it that that, but nope, that’s it. It’s the classic damsel in distress story, and it’s also lazy, making it the weakest video game “story” in history. Your plot is in another castle.
