Favourite Mario Game?

Recommended Posts

Hey there, what's everybody's favourite Mario platformer (ie no karts/sports/partners in time here)?

I've never been able to narrow it down further than three games:

SMW

SMB3

SMB

I'm going to split these up between consoles and handhelds.

HANDHELD (mainly GB monochrome)

Side-scroller - Super Mario Land

Other - tie between Dr. Mario & Yoshi's Cookie

CONSOLE

Side-scroller - tied between SMB and SMW, honestly.

Other - Mario Tennis (Nintendo 64">N64)

Though those are the definitive Mario games, New Super Mario really re-awoke my love for the franchise. The 3D Mario's never did it for me.

That's a hard one to decide.

Mine would have to be a draw between...

Super Mario Bros - Super Mario Land - Super Mario Bros 2 (USA)

Some may complain and say well SMB2 is not a Mario game at all but back when the game came out you couldn't say that in the US. So yes it is.

SM3. MARIO! MARIO! MARIO! Remember the commercial? It got me so hyped for it and when I finally got it for xmas, you couldn't pry it out of my hands with a crowbar. SMB is a close second. And let's not dare mention that bastard of a game, SM2. Oops!

I believe this is the commercial you're talking about... :)

Always loved that one myself.

I'd say SMW or SMB3. One thing I don't get is why everyone craps on Super Mario Sunshine. I thought that was a great game. Course, I never played that much Mario 64. I liked them both, but got farther in Sunshine.

Super Mario World is my favourite Mario game of all time. It was also the first Mario game that I ever played. Before that I was getting my gameing fix's from computer games and when I got a Snes and Super Mario World, well it blew my mind.

I love every thing about this game; the graphic's are so beautiful and colourful, the catchy music, the amazing level design which ensure's that if you loose a life in the game it is allway's your own fault and never the game's. I could go on and on.

I know many people who really love SMB 3 and that is a great game too but for me Super Mario World is my favourite Mario game and one of the best game's ever made. Can't wait till the next time I play it. :D

Heck yeah, that was an awesome commercial! I always loved the slogan of the time as well, "Nintendo, now you're playing with power." For me it is a toss up between SMB3 and SMW--they were both great, IMHO. I did however purchase the SNES because I thought SMW was totally awesome!

This post caught my attention again. I'm at work right now and for some weird reason the Super Mario Land music keeps going around in my head.

To me, that always means 'time to play.'

That's one of the reasons I started playing Phantasy Star II. The intro music and that other piece when they are giving you the mission is awesome. Those are some game tunes that I just can't shake from my head.

Super Mario World for me. It is one of the few games I enjoy playing as much today as I did back in 1992. Also in my top three are Super Mario Bros. 3 and New Super Mario Bros.

It's funny how those older 8bit and 16bit games age better than Nintendo 64">N64 or Playstation ones. Has anyone noticed that? Games like Chrono Trigger, Mario, Sonic and others still look beautiful even with big pixels.
