To celebrate Mario's 35th Anniversary, I want to ask what is your favorite 3D Mario game?
For me it's a tough one, I love every single 3D Mario game in a unique way. I love Mario 64 for the open worlds and exploration with some fun platforming, I love Sunshine for its depth,atmosphere, open worlds, secrets, controls, and challenge. I love Galaxy for the tons of variety of worlds with totally well designed unique missions and its level design that encourages fun platforming. I Love 3D World for the tons of stages, powerups, and overall variety while having multiplayer, and I enjoy the platforming elements. I love odyssey for its huge worlds and tons of secrets and elements in the worlds to explore, making it easy to pick up and play and get addicted.
The only 3D Mario game I haven't played or even tried yet is SMG2, from what I heard may be the best one in the 3D Mario series.
However, if i were to choose one I'll say Super Mario 64, mainly cause it really paved the way for the rest of the 3D Marios and I feel like it has a perfect balance of feeling like all the other ones.
