Let's say I could only buy ONE Mario game for my 3DS, because really I only want to buy one. What's the bestest Mario game on the 3DS/DS platform? And by best or course I mean compared to Super Mario World.

The Super Mario 64 port.

Super Mario 3D Land is one of the best Mario games in a long time.

I just started bowsers inside story last week and it's great so far. Way better than that new super Mario bros garbage. Wish I could stick with it but then Pokemon showed up....then Phoenix wright next week! 3ds is bringing it lately.

If you're going to play one of those, the Wii ones are probably the ones to go with, and even then, only if you're gonna do multiplayer.

Super Mario 3D Land is one of the best Mario games, period. Bowser's Inside Story is another really, really great game.

3D Land, quite easily. It's the most ambitious Mario platformer released on a handheld since the original New Super Mario Bros.

I have very fond memories of New Super Mario Bros.

I really like 3D Land but still lean NSMB.

#18 Posted by Vuud (1943 posts) -

Maaan but that 3d World looks dope. Too bad it's only for Wii U... I just might go shopping for a used or refurb Wii U.

3D Land. It's the only Mario game I've enjoyed since Sunshine.

3D land is one of the best games I have ever played.

@vuud: Super Mario 3D Land or Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.

This speaker tells truth. Love both games dearly.

3D Land for sure but NSMB2 is actually really fun too. Also, definitely go with Bowser's Inside Story over Dream Team.

MARIO KART 7

On the other end of the spectrum, I'd just like to recommend that you don't get Paper Mario: Sticker Star. That game was so damn disappointing.

Mario Kart 7. You can still find plenty of people to play with any time of the day or night, even though it was released 2 years ago!

3D Land, followed by the first New Super Mario Bros.
