Super Mario Bros = Super Mario Bros 1
Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels = Super Mario Bros 2
Super Mario Bros 3 = Super Mario Bros 3
Super Mario World = Super Mario Bros 4
New Super Mario Bros = Super Mario Bros 5
New Super Mario Bros Wii = Super Mario Bros 6 
 
It's scientific fact. 

Yoshi's Island?  Get outta here with that!

Fuck you man, I love Yoshi's Island.

#4 Posted by amomjc (977 posts) -

I thought Yoshi's Island was Super Mario World 2 basically. Maybe i saw Super Mario Bros. 3 at one point but I swear I read it that it's SMW2.

Naw, homie. We ain't never had SMB4. I'm still waiting for the day.

Super Mario World is called Super Mario World: Super Mario Bros. 4 in Japan.
 
And Yoshi's Island is called Super Mario: Yoshi's Island in Japan.  No Bros.  Thus, not a real SMB game.
 
Just like how the new Mario Kart game coming out is suddenly being called Mario Kart 7(because, really, it is), the next 2D SMB game should be called SMB7.

This is something that seems really even marginally interesting! Do go on!

Maybe I'm a terrible person, but I don't believe Super Mario World is worthy of being called Super Mario Bros. 4....

I tend to agree.

According to Nintendo the Super Mario Bros. franchise page, is wrong.  
 

Oh that's interesting, could you please post a link to the official statement that Nintendo released regarding the games belonging to the Super Mario Bros. franchise?
 
And if you're just gonna retort every opinion that is different from yours with "Nah, you're wrong, I'm right" then this thread doesn't really have any discussion value and it should be locked.

No.... Super Mario Bros 4 doesn't deserve to be called Super Mario World. 
 
Boom.

The fact that Super Mario World is CALLED Super Mario Bros. 4 in Japan makes it fairly obvious that Nintendo considers the game part of the SMB series.  
The franchise page doesn't list SMW as a SMB game.  Nintendo calls it a SMB game.  Nintendo would know better than GiantBomb, ergo, the franchise page MUST be wrong.

@DarthEnder: What's the point of this thread again?
 
You clearly reject any opinion that differs from yours, so I see no reason why your logic needs a discussion thread - after all, you claim that your logic is flawless. Therefore I think you'll agree with me saying that this thread should be locked, and the SMB franchise page should be edited.
 
You can edit the franchise page by hitting the 'Edit this Page' button above the page's main picture. I wish you the best of luck during the moderation stage.

Interesting.

I don't see why you're laying the burden of proof at my feet here.  You accuse me of going "Nuh uh, you're wrong."  When nobody is explaining why they'd be right in the first place.
 
Someone goes "SMB2 USA counts".  With no explanation or reasoning as to WHY it should count.  But when I reply with an actual REASON as to why it doesn't, you accuse me of being the one who's being dismissive. 

I gave a damn good reason why SMB2 USA isn't part of the SMB franchise and a damn good reason why SMW is.  They gave no reasoning at all.  So why are you singling me out as the one who's just dismissing other people's opinions?

I made this to specifically address a topic that came up during this weeks podcast.
#23 Edited by DarthEnder (53 posts) -

I feel like bumping this since the whole Yoshi's Island controversy started relates to this topic directly. :p

Anyway, since I first posted this topic, there's been two more NSMB games. So they'd basically be:

New Super Mario Bros. 2 = Super Mario Bros. 7
New Super Mario Bros. U = Super Mario Bros. 8

So I think Nintendo would be totally justified if they just released it's next side scrolling 2D Mario game Super Mario Bros. 9.

This thread was stupidly antagonistic and argumentative the first time round. It didn't need to be bumped for a second round of dumb arguments.
