Favorite 2D Mario Title? (not sure if Yoshi's Island counts...so I'm excluding it)
Super Mario Bros. 3 for me.. it was my very first video game and still one of my favourites.
I still have the cartridge too, but my NES died a long time ago.. so i play it on Wii now lol.
Seriously thank god for the Nintendo Wii and it's large list of classic games to play on the Virtual Console.
I have no nostalgia for the old ones as I played very little of them as a child on account of not having a NES, so I have to go with New Super Mario Bros. Wii since it's obviously superior if you put them all side by side and scrutinize them by todays standards. .
Although, Wario Land: Shake It! is still one of my favorite 2D games this generation and I'd rate that higher than NSMBW. It was actually the main reason I bought a Wii for, but I guess that's technically not a Mario game.
I say Super Mario Bros. 3. It's my favorite game of all time, but Super Mario World is pretty close behind it. Only reason SMB3 bests World to me is SMB3 is more like the original SMB (and the best of those style of games). When you think about it, there hasn't been a game like SMW since it came out. New SMB etc. are all more like SMB/3 (SMB 2 was an odd one.Good, but odd) than SMW. The only game I think that came close to being like SMW was Super Mario Land 2. WIth that said, they should make a New Super Mario World Wii or something.
