#7: Super Mario 3D World
Super Mario 3D World is an interesting game, and one of many firsts. It's the first 3D Mario game where you can play cooperatively with one another in the main game. And I will say, this was a brilliant addition to the series. I still can't believe that my siblings would come up to me and ask if they could play "more Mario". Still puts a smile on my face just thinking about it. It's also the first in which you can choose from five different characters to play as, each with different abilites and pros/cons. Rosalina was my personal favorite with her Galaxy-esque spin jump. Peach with her hover jump was also a life saver in many situations. I also loved the fact that 3D World was a beautiful merging of 2D and 3D Mario gameplay. The level design was incredibly focused and inventive. All in all, 3D World is a game of incredible invention and timeless fun. I can't wait to see what the guys at EAD Tokyo come up with next.
