Which is the best Super Mario game of all time for you?

Around the Network

Super Mario Galaxy.
One of the best games of all time.

Bros 3, World, 64, and Galaxy 2 are fantastic as well, though.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

I know this is wrong but Super Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars is My Favorite game of all time!

Now favorite Mario platformer, Galaxy, simply amazing (even though 2 was better) and Mario 64 was truly NEXT GEN back wen i was like 6 years old lol

2D = Super Mario World
3D = Super Mario Galaxy 2

I also like Super Mario 64 (The N64, NDS one not so much), Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario Galaxy 1.

Sunshine is OK - hated it at first but enjoyed it a few years later.

SMB1 is OK, SMB2 was ugh, SMB2 Lost Levels is OK

Yoshi's Island was amazing but I dont really count it as a mario game but a "Yoshi" game.

Although I did somewhat enjoy the NSMB series (I only played Wii and NDS versions) - I have to say those are my least favorite games aside from SMB2 and SML.

Edit: Hated Super Mario Land but Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins was GOLD.


Edit 2 : I guess I'll rank them from my favorites to least favorite.

1. Super Mario World
2. Super Mario Galaxy 2
3. Super Mario Galaxy 1
4. Super Mario Bros. 3
5. Super Mario 64
6. Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins
7. Super Mario Bros. 1
8. Super Mario Sunshine
9. Super Mario Bros. 2
10. New Super Mario Bros Wii

Edit: If Yoshi's Island is allowed I would put that in #6 so NSMB Wii would eventually get knocked out.

Really didnt like Super Mario 64DS, NSMBDS and SML1 l0l

tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

I loved every single one of the ones listed.


...except Yoshi's Island. Horribly overrated.

Super Mario galaxy 2

The original galaxy would probably have taken it if it wasn't for the fact that I played the second first.

There's only one game on that list awesome enough to have its own movie, and that game is Super Mario Bros. 3, aka the best Mario platformer of all time.

SMW is a close 2nd for me, followed by Yoshi's Island in 3rd, SM64 in 4th, and Galaxy in 5th.
