Super Mario 3D Land 17 11.81%

1) Super Mario Galaxy:

It blew all my expectations when it was released, and they were very high. It was so much superior to any other 3D platformer from all periods.

2) Super Mario Galaxy 2:

Better than the first game, but did not amaze me as much because the first one came before. But it is a better game. Yoshi, Mario Cloud were absolutely amazing. The levels were insane. It is the best 3D platformer ever made easily

3) Super Mario 64

At the time it was a revolution, it it still a great game but not in the level og Galaxy episodes.

4) Super Mario Sunshine,

The game was actually underrated, it was a very good but quite unusual game. The water added a whole new dimension but it looked less Mario than the other games. It also had a frustating camera in some area.

5) Super Mario 3D Land

Great game, but more a mixed child from 2D and 3D serie. It really takes a lot of the codes of the 2D games.

My favourite 3D mario is and will probably always be Mario 64. Other 3D mario games have done a lot of things better than 64, but the feeling of playing 64 has never been recaptured. I can still pop the game and feel amazed by the worlds and the gameplay

If I had to make a list it would go like this:

1) Super Mario 64
2) Super Mario Galaxy 2
3) Super Mario Sunshine
4) Super Mario 3D Land
5) Super Mario Galaxy

Nothing against Galaxy, but Galaxy 2 was heaps better than the original (to me), which put it barely above Sunshine (I must be one of the few people that really loved Sunshine and it's challenge).

Super Mario Sunshine, only liked Super Mario galaxy 1, SMG2 felt more like the same and wish they didnt make a sequel with the same setting.

Super Mario 64 by a large margin. Least favourite is Sunshine.

Mario 64, Super Mario sunshine was good but not as good as Mario 64.

1. Galaxy 2
2. Galaxy
3. 3D Land
4. 64
5. Sunshine

Mario 64, but maybe that's the nostalgia talking. Realistically it's a tie between 64 and Galaxy 1

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

Haven´t played Galaxy 1 and 3D Land, but:

1. SM 64:

2. Galaxy 2:

3. Sunshine
