For me, it has to be Sunshine. I played the hell out of that.
 
What about you?

Is Super Mario Bros. 3 really that good? I own it, and I think it's the worst main Mario game ever made.

Super Mario Galaxy.  Hands down my favorite game of all time.  It capitalized on both Mario's established pedigree, while taking the three dimensional series where it needed to go, in a time where platformers appeared dead or abandoned.  It also rekindled my interest in video games, which has sent my wallet back hundred of dollar since.

Holy crap, this is probably one of the worst posts ever made.  I know its an opinion and everything, but can anyone deny the awesomeness of SMB3?
 
For me its Super Mario World and then SMB3 in a close second.

Hotel Mario.

Any answer that isn't Super Mario World is wrong.  And yes your opinions can be wrong.  Example:  Super Mario World isn't the best Mario.

In that case I say Super Mario Galaxy.

Apparently, Shigeru Miyamoto was disappointed with Super Mario World, having to force it into market unfinished (which explains why there are ninety six levels instead of the planned one hundred.)

Super Mario World by a pretty good margin.

@Dethfish77: Super Mario Kart might just be my favorite racing game of all time.  So much joy and fond memories playing that game.  ^__^

Super Mario World

#25 Posted by Toxin066 (3277 posts) -

My favorite Mario of all time will be Super Mario World 7.   My favorite to date? Probably Super Mario Bros 3.

#26 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

Super Mario World was awesome, but I have to go with Mario 3. Honestly, I love them all, besides 2. That game still gives me nightmares.

#27 Posted by Hitchenson (4682 posts) -

I'm with the OP here, Sunshine for me.

#28 Posted by Bones8677 (3225 posts) -

Super Mario World, it's the first game I played, I think it was at least. I was pretty young at that time.

#29 Posted by Steve_C (1750 posts) -

I think I first played a Mario game at my cousins. Super Mario All-Stars. My favourite out of that was SMB3 by far. Love the suits and music.
 
I really didn't like Super Mario World when I played it briefly some time after. It wasn't SMB3, and I wasn't too keen on the sprites and some of the art. Not too sure what it is, but something doesn't connect with me. I need to go back and play through that whole game.

Super mario bros 3, galaxy, the paper mario on the ngc was cool

#31 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

Super Mario Bros. 3 is probably the ultimate. Mario 64 is my favorite Mario game probably due to the amount of time I had with it, but SMB3 is soooooo good.

#32 Posted by zitosilva (1840 posts) -

Mario 3. Not only the best Mario, but also the best game ever made.

#33 Posted by joey (983 posts) -

Mario 64.

#35 Posted by Griddler (3344 posts) -

Galaxy. It's up there as one of the best games I've ever played.

#36 Posted by Brunchies (2484 posts) -

Mine would be Mario 64 and Mario 3. 

#37 Posted by ShadowKing7 (753 posts) -

My personal favorite is the first Super Mario Bros.  So much time spent with that game, so many hours...
#38 Posted by Marzy (675 posts) -

Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy, I can't pick.

#39 Posted by Famov (768 posts) -

I hate to be predictable, but Super Mario World is platforming perfected. If SMB 2 is a radical departure from the formula and SMB 3 is a conservative expansion of the original idea (with lost levels simply being SMB 1.5), then Mario World takes the best of both and manages to surpass all four NES titles. What else can I say without sounding so hyperbolic that it becomes nauseating?

This! That game made me enjoy video games again, after a few years of grey and brown FPS's it's exactly what I needed.

Never did like any Mario games, thats just me.
#44 Posted by Breadfan (6589 posts) -

#45 Posted by TooWalrus (13161 posts) -

I'd go with the Japanese version of Super Mario Bros 2. (The Lost Levels).

#46 Posted by Lydian_Sel (2483 posts) -

Does Wario Land count? It technically was "Super Mario Land 3".

#47 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. 
Hell yeah!

Well, I guess my experience with it did not resemble awesome to me, more like frustration. Super Mario World however, was great.
 
Super Mario Kart is also the worst of the Mario Kart series by far. Sure, ot was awesome when it came out, but after playing the sequels, the first one is just too primitive. And this is from the guy who liked the first Final Fantasy.

Oh man!  Yes, getting further in the game can make it frustrating.  Especially iin the 8th world where all you have is moving ships, but its so filled with tension.  The bosses are super easy though. 
Please tell us that at least you think its better than Mario Kart 64!  It may seem primitive but only in terms of graphics, music and some driving issues, but it had a lot of good stuff that I hated to see go. 
It had mode 7.  Also, i thought the idea of running over the ? blocks was a good one for the time, and the fact that they would not come back, so once you used one it was red the whole race, and you could end up not getting anything if you used up a good section.  Then the idea of coins and weight, I think the coins made a come back in Super Circuit.  That was a good idea, that you needed coins to go a little faster and not get bumped into spinning out.

Super Mario Bros 3 was fun. But i also enjoyed Paper Mario on the Gamecube.
