Children: Mom, which one of us is your favorite?
There's my answer.

Hey, that's an awesome analogy for the mario games! It is like picking your favorite child. I think I'll pick "".Originally Posted by § Gideon §
Super Mario World is by my favourite, closely followed by Super Mario All-Stars.
I would have voted All-Stars, but I thought that that was cheap because it has almost every old school one. My favorite is without a doubt SMB3. I played that forever on All-Stars, and now that I have it for the GBA, I don't think I'll be stopping soon.
I am definately not suprised to see SMB3 at number 1 and really not suprised to see super mario world at #2, but am very surprised to see that Mario64 and Sunshine aren't doing alot better.

Super Mario World for me. I loved the whole map feature plus this game had TONS of secrets. I can remember spending long nights trying to find all of the alternate ways to get through some of the levels. Good times...
this is where my vote goes to
Super Mario World and Mario 3 slaughter the polls
but the day this game arrived on Super Mario All-Stars under the name "The Lost Levels" I was hooked.
Any oddball sequel or lost titles to a games series...I will love it. Underdog titles are my favorite.
or as I like to put it:
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
These cartridges are dirty as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!
I should know this, but was it Sqaure-Enix that made this game with Nintendo?Originally Posted by Querjek
Yeah, for some reason I don't know this, that's a good fucking combination!
dunno. i'm gonna have to go with the original SMB, since it pretty much splits the game industry in to their BC/AD periods.
so many memories...
SMB3 and SMW were just breathtaking in their scope at the time, and still feel like fresh new 'discoveries' as someone put it today.
i saw a japanese N64 running mario 64 the day i went to buy SMRPG, and so that game will always be a lovely swan song for the SNES to me.
SM64 was like the original, another turning point, and i must say, the only 3D platform game i have ever found truly enjoyable. repeated visits to the levels emphasized their playground nature and were broken into perfectly sized chunks, and it didn't seem like repetitve backtracking fetch gaming like everything that followed (even zelda: OOT)...
Why so little love for Yoshi's Island?
It's not really a 'Mario' game, in my opinion. It's an excellent game in its own rite, but it never should've had the subtitle of: "Super Mario World 2".Why so little love for Yoshi's Island?
"And remember ladies: if it ain't tight, it ain't right!"
Heh. I just read through all the replies and was going to ask the same question. Yeah, it's not really a "proper" Mario game, but it's the absolute pinnacle of 2D platforming IMO. Gets my vote.Originally Posted by slip81
Yoshi's Island is definatley my 2nd fav. platformer on the snes, next to Super Mario World of course. It definately wasn't the "proper" name, I mean considering all the other yoshi games. But now that i think about it, those games really didn't have Mario at all in them, if I can remember?Originally Posted by anagrama
A true sequal to SuperMario World would be a damn dream come true for me! (Sorry, just daydreaming. )
This is BY FAR, the game that was most argued about in my house with my little brother and sister. All of use always wanted to play it. Since there is 3 save files in the game, each of use would take one and see who could get the most stars in a week, or who could get the most stars the fastest, etc. GREAT MEMORIES!Originally Posted by junglehunter
Had to go with RPG because it was so much fun to play. It was excellent and i would love to see a remake. That was a tough choice though because they were all such fun to play but the others got to the point where it was much more fun to play 2 player.
Have you ever played Paper Mario for the N64 and are you looking forward to PaperMario2 for the Gamecube?Originally Posted by izret101
I am looking foreward to playing both of them enough to make a real decision on voting for them. I only played Paper Mario for a hour at most. The new one looks good though.
Yeah. SMB3 was great. I also really like Super Mario RPG.
Super Mario World. Man, I still remember the excitement of finding a hidden goal or keyhole, and discovering Soda Lake and the Special Zone for the first time.
SMB 3 is a close second. When I first saw that Mario could fly, my jaw literally dropped to the floor. I liked all the different items. Back when I had it on the NES, I hated beating Bowser and realizing I had a spare Hammer Brother suit, Fire Flower, or Tanooki suit I didn't use. So needless to say, I was glad that you could save items on the Super Mario All-Stars port.
Super Mario 64 was great, but it had some minor camera problems and it can get repetitive going through each level 6 times.
Ah, tell me about it! It was like finding treasure when discovering the Lake and espcially the Special Zone for the first time. It was pure magic!!Originally Posted by DigitalSpace
And Mario64 definately had some camera issues but what 3-D game doesn't, espcially one as great as Mario64.
