This list of the Top 5 Super Mario Brothers games contains a couple of surprises, as well as a few staple Mario games.
No Mario 64? This list is fail.
I play Mario 2 over Mario 64 all the time.
Without Mario 64 this list is ... Epic Fail
As u can see sackboy has a loooong way to go before it can be called the new mario people said it would be... :) SACKBOY=FAIL IN TRYING TO BE MARIO XD
5. Super Mario 3 4. Super Mario 64 3. Super Mario Galaxy 2. Super Mario World 1. Super Mario Bros. People hitting disagree buttons on people's lists are a bunch of morons. We're all entitled to our own opinion about this, and you can't expect everyone to agree with yours so what's the use of sitting behind your computer screen and pushing the disagree button every time someone's list puts games in a different order than you would? Get a life.
But people are entitled to disagree with your opinion, so they can disagree all they want. Just because somebody disagrees with you doesn't mean you're wrong. As you said, it's just an opinion. No need to be so sensitive about disagrees.
How is SMB2 on this list over Mario64? Lame.
Get over it. Mario64 is completely overrated.
A list like this is almost entirely opinionated. Some may prefer the transition to 3D that Mario64 did, but others may prefer the classic gameplay (im half and half)
Not only is it almost entirely opinionated, it is entirely opinionated. :-)
usually has the stupidest lists on their website. And their justifications for the game making the list is usually worse than the game they put in that list, but honestly, I liked this list (but their justifications were still stupid. These guys are no journalists). I think every one of those games held my attention, hell to this day SMW is still my favorite Mario game.
List is wrong, the correct answer is: 5. Super Mario Bros. 4. Super Mario Bros. 2 (JPN) 3. Super Mario 64 2. Super Mario Bros. 3 1. Super Mario World
Nope: 5. Mario DS 4. Mario Galaxy 3. Mario 64 2. Mario 1 1. Mario 3
Mario World isn't even close to #1.
I, admittedly, forgot about New Super Mario Bros... but would I remove Mario 1 for it? Tempted... And Super Mario World is, officially, the best game of all time on the best console of all time. THIS IS FACT! :P
Mine: 5. Mario64 4. Mario Galaxy 3. Mario World 2. Mario 1 1. Mario 3
5. Mario 64 4. Mario1 3. Mario DS 2. Mario World 1. Mario3
5. Mario Galaxy 4. Mario 64 3. Mario World 1 2. Super Mario Brothers 1. Mario World 3
"And Super Mario World is, officially, the best game of all time on the best console of all time. THIS IS FACT! :P" Agreed! It has the best Hub. New Super Mario bros's hub sucked...bad. Great game tho.
Wow. For once I disagree with an Old-Wizard list. Mario64 needs to be on this. Probably at #4 or #5 though.
yeah i agree.
hahaha....this list is pathetic.
haha... you have like 7 accounts buddy
If you think Mario 64 is the best Mario game out there, click agree
I think its a great game, but best over 3? that's tough. maybe i'll give you #2.
its definitely better than Mario 2! They even admit Mario 2 is panned: "The amount of unnecessary controversy surrounding Super Mario Brothers 2 is unprecedented. If you hear someone complaining about a Super Mario Brothers game it’s probably Mario 2 because its not like Mario 1 or 3, which are supposed to be the “authentic” Marios. Looking back, and playing through Super Mario All Stars though, Mario 2 comes as a treat, with its completely different game playing style and colourful imagery."
do u think its better than mario 3 though?
like seeing everyone's mario games list. goes to show how many great games the series has made.
Mine: 5. Super Mario World 4. Super Mario 1 3. Super Mario 64 2. Super Mario Galaxy 1. Super Mario 3
Yeah, even though my list is different, I can agree with everyone's lists. Too many awesome Mario games and I think a lot of people have forgotten that because of some of the shovelware with Mario's face on it.
"5 - Mario 3 is #1 HANDS DOWN! :) Super Mario World is too easy. SMW2:Yoshi's Island is way better." Its great to see ppl arguing over which mario game is the best (coz that is a reallly tough task to do). This is something i dont mind ppl arguing about because each mario game has done different things for different ppl. Im sure every1 here has great memories of playing a mario game for the first time, or the first time they finished a mario game. The range of gameplay elements that have been brought to the table are unmatched, with every differnt title soemthing new is always added to the way the game is played. P.S i noticed no1 is arguing that Sunshine should be in the list lol
HANDS DOWN! :) Super Mario World is too easy. SMW2:Yoshi's Island is way better.
eh decent list. could have been better though.
Just needs Mario 64. Can't exclude that
No New Super Mario Brothers?
Yeah, that needs to be on
Uh-Oh!Another Old-Wizard/Slapstic article in which the 20 accounts of Old Wizard talks to himself.
wow man. you need a life.
you're like the mulder of n4g. its a conspiracy theory.
Your the one disagreeing with yourself and responding to yourself about 20 year old games.I would report you but retro gaming is still alive on n4g thanks to Old Wizard.
well, i'm sorry, but while i am a fan of OW, i am not OW. the only staff members of OW here are: OldWizard stoneroses and Volvobug. But they are 3 seperate people from 3 serperate states.
Yeah right.By the way your out of bubbles.You should probably get your other account to prove me otherwise...oh thats right :)
its true actually. although we do twitter every new submission so our twitter friends come out to support us.
There he is.The man of the hour
Do you actually read the articles or are you just your own police chief for N4G? There's actually stuff to read in articles you know.
anyone who thinks mario 64 is better than mario 2 hit agree. lol
Is how many great Mario games there have been through the years. No ones list is going to be the same, and that's a testament to the quality Mario games (main ones) have. For me I liked 3, but I had mroe fun playing world, super mario all-stars was great, the transition to 3-d changed many things, and I sometimes feel I have to seperate the best mario games by their dimension, like best 2-d mario is vs best 3-d Mario is I also put myself back into the moment of when I first played these games. That is why for me I think Mario 64 was better than galaxy, even though galaxy perfected alot of the minor problems 64 had. I think World is better than 3, but in all honesty I can't make a list like this, the main games have all been classics.
sorry but i didn't like Mario Galaxy nor Sunshine, and to not put Mario 64 in there is a complete fail.
Needs to have Mario 64. The most innovative Mario game ever.
Most innovative Mario game made? How bout one of the most innovative games Ever made? Who was doing 3d worlds before Mario?and who was doing it well?Hell Nintendo had to develope the Analog Stick just for games like this.
Nobody picked Super Mario Sunshine. Definitely the low point of the series, but certainly not a bad game!
That would be in the worst Mario games! Maybe the only one
I had the most fun with Mario 64, my personal favorite
No SNB 2 for me. I just dont like how it looks and how different it is from the original one. 5)SM 1 4)SM 64 1)SM 3 1)SM world 1)SM Galaxy Not sure wich one should de in the first place.
LOL: "All in all, the original Super Mario Brothers was a fun game, but it also taught us some important life lessons: much like you can’t go back on a screen, you can’t go back in life. Once you make a choice you are stuck with it. Eat your vegetables and you’ll grow big and strong, always chase stars, no matter where they lead you, if you eat a flower you just end up spitting fire, and with a little manual labour you’ll find gold coins in the most unlikely places."
5. Sunshine 4. New Super Mario bros. 3. 64 2. Galaxy 1. All Stars :P I know its cheating but hey, All Stars rocked.
Double post- sucky net :(
To everyone saying "OMG! SM64 should have been on the list!!!" Super Mario Galaxy is in every way superior to SM64. Don't let nostalgia cloud your eyes. Whereas the 2D Mario games (yes, even SMB2) each have their own unique mechanics, SM64 is completely overshadowed by Galaxy. People hate SMB2 but look at what it did for the series. Compare it to "Lost Levels: (which is the "real" SMB2 I guess you could say). Lost Levels did absolutely nothing for the series. SMB2 added different characters, different abilities for each characters, new enemies, pressing "up" to enter doors, picking up enemies...the list goes on. Pay it some respect.
Didn't know galaxy was superior in using paintings as portals to other worlds...
GWAVE: Couldn't agree more. good to see an independent thinker amongst a sea of sheep gamers.
How can you make a top 5 of something that only has 3 games?There are only 3 Super Mario BROTHERS games. Now maybe top 5 Mario games I can see.
wow you're retarded.
Whatwhatwhat Lost Levels farts on all... except for maybe smw or smb3
Damn right man. That is an excellent point. We all take 3-d games for granted, but Mario 64 introduced so many aspects to 3d gaming, so much so we take it for granted. Top 5 or even 3 innovative games ever created.
5) Mario Galaxy 4) Mario 64 (although Galaxy has gotten higher review scores) 3) Super Mario Bros 2) Super Mario World 1) Super Mario Bros 3 Er, maybe swap the first Mario bros with Mario 64.........yea, I think that would make more sense.
My List 1) Super Mario World 2) Super Mario 3 3) New Super Mario Bro's 4) Super Mario 64 5) Super Paper Mario (64) I've never played Galaxy or Sunshine.
i totally agree that Super Mario 3 was the best, spent many weeks of my childhood playing it and loving every minute :D
