Kicking off a new series of polls to ask the community, lurkers and visitors what their favorite game of any given IP is.

The start is Super Mario Bros., the IP that really made Nintendo a household name. While they've had successes before, most notably Donkey Kong, it wasn't until SMB that everyone knew Nintendo. The game was such a big deal that it turned the console it was on into an even bigger success than the widely popular Atari 2600. While SMB was bundled with a lot of NES consoles in America and Europe, it's clear that it had no problem standing on its own due to its sales in Japan where it's still one of the best-selling games of all time with 6.81m copies sold.

While SMB has been incredibly important to the video game history, its quality as a game hasn't aged as well due to more refined games launching on the NES already, including its own god-tier sequel Super Mario Bros. 3.

But enough talk. What's your favorite Super Mario Bros. game?


Bonus question: What would you like to see in Switch's SMB game, assuming that Nintendo will not repeat the stupidity of going entire generations without SMB games again?

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