26. Super Mario Sunshine, GC (2002) Nintendo (25 last year)
As much as this is the weakest of the console 3D Mario games (and it indeed is), being weakest of a superlative breed still gets it this far up the list. Super Mario 64 had two distinct flavors: tests of skill and searching for stuff. The Galaxy games went with the test of skill route, but Super Mario Sunshine was much more about large worlds, and much of the game's fun came from parkour-esque point-a-to-point-b travels. Worth more than it's remembered for.
Number 25 also relies on water in significantly large amounts, but as a tool of an ancient apocalypse wiping out a beloved locale of gaming history.
