Going to have to go with Super Mario Bros. 3 or Super Mario World.

Paper Mario(the first one)

#6 Posted by FlatPerception (6 posts) -

I think SMB 3 beats all. Nostalgia, gameplay and setting the icon. Followed by Mario Galaxy.

#7 Posted by hide (77 posts) -

Super Mario Bros. 3 is unparalleled. Mario Kart 64 next to that.

Link's Awakening

I actually really dig Super Mario Galaxies, it's a lot better than I'd thought it'd be.
Before that though Super Mario Bros on the NES.
It mightn't look so great nowadays, but it's one of the few games from that era that I find holds up gameplay wise even now.

Super Mario World. Greatest game ever made

#17 Posted by MetalSabe (6 posts) -

Mario Galaxy, the variety in the game is nearly insane.

#18 Posted by CitizenKane (10682 posts) -

Definitely Super Mario World.

#19 Posted by mjcowley (5 posts) -

Super Mario World followed very closely by Super Mario  Bros 3.
Oh and there will always be a soft spot for Sunshine ;)

#20 Posted by Lord132 (2 posts) -

Without a doubt Super Mario 64, the first and BEST 3D platformer.

although i agree with mjcowley Sunshine holds a place in my heart

#21 Edited by Axersia (1725 posts) -

Yoshi's Island for me. Best 2D platformer ever IMO.

#22 Edited by sionweeks (709 posts) -

Definitely Super Mario World, followed closely by Suer Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

#23 Posted by tharobc (14 posts) -

It's all about Galaxy for me - freekin' awesome fun!

My favourite Mario is Super Mario Bros 3.  Its one of the first games I can remember finishing in my lifetime and the gameplay, level design etc just makes it somewhat the perfect platformer.  Super Mario World and SMG are not too far behind.

Super mario World Fo life, tied with the original Mario Bros for 1st SM64 and SMB3 are tied for 2nd

#26 Posted by get2sammyb (6686 posts) -

Super Mario Bros 3/Super Mario World/Super Mario 64. In no particular order.

#27 Posted by Toseph (391 posts) -

Super Mario world by a long way

#28 Posted by Otacon (2252 posts) -

I'm going to say Super Mario Bros 3 but it's actually close to Galaxy.

#29 Posted by blizzvalve (141 posts) -

Super Mario Bros. 3 is my personal favorite

#30 Posted by Wesker (568 posts) -

Super Mario 64. It's probably because it was the first mario game I played and beat. Has that nostalgic value the others don't, unfortunately.

#31 Posted by MikPick (361 posts) -

The first and second Paper Mario games.

#32 Posted by Kowalski (315 posts) -

Super Mario Galaxy followed by Super Mario Bros. 3. Galaxy is too much of a masterpiece for me to let the retro feelings name SMB3 as the best, it's not anymore.

#33 Posted by elektrixx (396 posts) -

Super Mario 64, but in time I think I'll consider Galaxy to be the better game.

#34 Posted by AdrenalinDragon (44 posts) -

Super Mario 64 overall but the best 2D Mario Game has to go to Super Mario Bros 3!

#35 Posted by OGCartman (4330 posts) -

Super Mario 64.

#36 Posted by Atlas (2564 posts) -

Super Mario 64.

#37 Posted by WizzyKid (275 posts) -

Super Mario Galaxy just takes the cake from me.

#38 Posted by MattyFTM (14606 posts) -

Super Mario 64 closely followed by SMB3

#39 Posted by suneku (3005 posts) -

Super Mario Bros 3

#40 Posted by Firelad43 (62 posts) -

Super Mario Bros on the NES. Started my entire gaming career lol. The long hours with my dad trying to beat it over and over. Great times, great times.

#41 Posted by Guild_Master (265 posts) -

Super Mario 3, followed by Super Mario 64

#42 Posted by thebipsnbeeps (595 posts) -

Its Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island for me, though I also want to say Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario World, Super Mario Brothers, Super Mario Brothers 2, Super Mario Brothers 3, Super Paper Mario, Paper Mario, Paper Mario: the Thousand-Year Door, New Super Mario Brothers, and Super Mario 64.

#43 Posted by Jigen (199 posts) -

Super Mario World and Super Mario Bros 3.  It's hard for me to decide between those two, but those are my favorite Mario games by far.

#44 Posted by Masc0t (72 posts) -

Super Mario World!

#45 Posted by Hellion (11 posts) -

That's such a tough question to answer.

Mario games tend to set the bar for every game to follow.

I would have to say Super Mario 1 for nostalgia purposes but man Mario 64 changed the whole world of gaming.

#46 Posted by TimeWaffle (967 posts) -

probably 64 because it's damn good

#47 Posted by Gaughan (97 posts) -

I can't decide between the original Super Mario Bros, SMB3, SMW, M64 and SMG. >.<
I enjoy them so much and can't place on infron to the other.

#48 Posted by Dakota (254 posts) -

1.) Super Mario World
2.) Super Mario Bros. 3
3.) Super Mario 64

#49 Posted by Tachikoma (72 posts) -

Super Mario Bros III

#50 Posted by AnonymousLegion (92 posts) -

It's gotta be the original. Or failed that, Super Mario Bros. 3.
People don't like me when I say this, but I hated Super Mario 64.
He should just stay 2D. End.
