Super Mario World, easily.

Mario wasn't fat like Sonic, a fact that Sega only somewhat rectified in Sonic 2 by adding the spin dash. You also have around 75 levels vs. 18+6. On top of that, SMW was stuffed with secrets while Sonic had a few different routes through its levels, but that was it.

Also, the platforming in SMW is much more sophisticated whereas Sonic has a bit of a floaty jump. It's no coincidence that Sonic's defining trait became top speed, because that's all he had over Mario.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
