The father of Mario has a favorite child: Super Mario World. But is it actually the best Mario game of all time?
Cause Mario fans will beat you to death in a spell of nerd rage if you say anything bad about Mario. Mario and Halo fans are straight psychos.
Then Uncharted fans are what, gay psychos? Ba dum, tssh. Just kidding. RELAX PEOPLE, JUST KIDDING! Btw, you can say whatever you want about Super Mario Sunshine. That one is fair game. I mean it wasn't terrible, but in the main series I'd say that's the worst one. Then again picking a worst Mario game in the main series is like picking the least hottest woman in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. We should be so thankful that such a thing even exists.
Super Mario sunshine replace super mario 2 which was considered the weakest. I love SM2 to be honest, actually I just found sunshine hard to control and I played for an hour and said why am I playing this? I just didn't like the game for some reason. Now, I'd love it I'm sure and see all the genius that I didn't realise was there.
Dan Hsu and Paul Gale from Bitmob should speak up on which is their favorite Mario game. I remember Shoe gave NSMB a perfect 10, so maybe that's his favorite? Paul gave Galaxy 2 a perfect 10. But those two guys' opinions I trust the most so I wanna know from them head on!
Paul and Shoe use to be on 1up. Love those guys!
Dan Hsu commented on that article: His fave is Super Mario Bros 3. :)
the mario series is one of the best ever and almost any could be the best for any one person. what do shoe, paul, and the others at bitmob prefer most?
The recent ones: no The innovative ones from before the gamecube era: yes
Super Mario World for the following reasons 1) had the stone-age environment feel to it which was unique. 2) has the best play mechanics of any Mario game. You could launch yourself off Yoshi's back, throw shells vertically, fly with the cape, spin jump, and there was no delay while running like in NSMB 3) Color coded Yoshi's and corresponding Koopa shells added great variety to how you went through levels. Yoshi felt like a companion and not like a tool as in NSMB. 4) greatest sense of mystery of any Mario game, and multiple paths to explore 5) Each "world" had it's own style, but they were all linked via the overworld map, so you never felt like you were jumping from random theme to theme like in Super Mario Bros 3. It all felt like one big place to explore. 6) Some of the best and most charming music of any Mario game to date 7) The moving goal at the end of stages was cool and less trite than having a castle with a flag after every stage.
Yeah....that's a pretty good overview. It's definately my favorite. There was so much to do in the game. It's one of the few SNES games that I still play on my SNES today when I get an oldschool bug up my butt.
Super Mario World is my favorite, I've beaten that game too many times to count. I've done a 12 minute speed run for it, nothing close to the record, but not too bad. A close second for me is SMB2. I don't care that it's Doki Doki Panic with a face lift, it's a great game. Also, imo, it's the reason we have the other games in the series. Without, the US SMB2, we would have been stuck with the Lost Levels type gameplay and no added variety. We wouldn't have all the crazy characters and levels and abilities that we've seen in the later games. So, everyone say thank you to the people that thought we were too mentally slow to handle the real SMB2.
That's crazy.. Crazy and amazingly well done...
