I would say its the entire industries most consistent franchise in terms of quality. Sure there are newer franchises that may be rated higher on a single game but they dont have 30 years of those games either.

I dont even read reviews for Mario games. It's pointless by now because you know the type of game it is and the quality is always there.

I seriously cant name a single bad Mario platform game. Sure some of the spin offs but not Mario Bros.

Super Mario Sunshine...Miyamoto himself was not pleased with this one.

thats the only super mario game ever I was never really able to get into and the only one I never finished

Timmer2119d ago

He may not have been pleased, but that does not mean it was in any way a bad game. SMS is probably the most underrated Mario game.

I didn't care for Super Mario Bros. 2, and Super Mario Sunshine, but yea... Bubble+.

You said it so well, the quality is always there. Super Mario has withstood the test of time without a scratch.

I would have thought Legend of Zelda, but yea Mario and Zelda are the top 2 I'd think in terms of quality

To me Mario has a chocolate chip recipe type of games, it isn't hard to mess up.

mamotte2120d ago

that was what Sonic said...

Its hard to drop in quality when you release the same game every year.

jimbobwahey2120d ago

Yup. Works for Nintendo and Activision just fine.

While its true in kinda sick of new super Mario bros.... With 3d Mario's this we had super Mario galaxy in 07... Then 2 in 2010 and 3Dland which is really a mix between then two styles in 2011... The console new super Mario bros are very similar to the handheld the control VERy differently and the consoles have 4 player drop in/out co op. NSMB 2 is a sequel to the DS game from 06 which is 6 years. NSMB Wii was 09 which is 3 years before the WiiU version comes... So not like cod at all... It's kinda a misconception that just becaus ether have Mario it makes them the same game. Though cod does look like its getting refreshed with BLK OPS 2

you mean COD and every other shooter is the same game released every year

idk, for me mario died with the n64. I havent played any of the new mario bros games intensely (i.e finish). Super mario world and sm3 are my favorite

live2play2120d ago

*reads* "FOR ME mario died with the n64"

oh you stated it as your own opinion and not as a fact

i can respect that

i dont share your opinion but i respect it

Super Mario World and Super Mario Bros. 3 are my personal favorites too. I am sure that you hear this all of the time, but you would really like New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

If you can manage to round up 3 other 2D Mario junkies, it's a lot of fun. I had a good group, and we played it to completion. We unlocked everything in the game in just 2 days.
