You can't say Nintendo without thinking about Mario. Its two most iconic 2D games are Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World. Which is the best?
Tie for me. Like asking which cereal is best, Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Cookie Crisp? Mario 3 I love due to its items and secrets. Super Mario I love due to its hidden stages, gave us yoshi. Personally, still waiting for Mario 3: Act 2.
“Personally, still waiting for Mario 3: Act 2.” The e-Reader levels in Super Mario Advance 4 and New Super Mario Bros 2 is the closest you’ll ever get to that
Figured Mario Maker but forgot about ereader. Still have hope.
It's so obviously 3 for me that I find it surprising that this is such a debate.
For my Super Mario World will forever be the greatest Mario title, but 3 is a pretty great game in its own right.
For me, it's a no-contest Super Mario 3 hands down I still call this game the best 2d platformer ever made. 1) lots of minigames like the toad house, the memory games, the hammer fights, old Mario bros battle, etc. 2) tons of power-up, Tanoki, Hammer Bros, Frog, P wing, cloud, a damn boot, raccoon plus the original 3) The angry sun (come on, it was more terrifying compared to the giant Boo) 4) Better Secrets, I disagree with the article here, finding an alternative exit is cool but it's nothing compared to learning how to make appear a floating house or turning a Hammer Bros into a coins ship. And let's be honest How many of us taught that we were cool because we knew where to catch the 1st flute tks to the Wizzard?
Holding down a few seconds on a white block to drop threw it on stage 3 world 1, finding my first blue toad house and the boot, yes the boot. That was awesome.
World, easily. Possibly my all-time favourite game. SMB3's levels are crazy short.
Bros 3. It's like comparing Breath of the Wild to Ocarina of Time. Botw is really good, but it's no Ocarina of Time. World is good, but no contest the best Classic NES Super Mario Bros 3..
The Super Mario World = more levels more fun, and a lot of stuff that was not on SM3.
World, and it's not even close.
3 all the way!
I feel like World is objectively a better game, but I'll always have a soft spot for SMB3. Was really my first gaming addiction. I can crush that shit in no time.
Bros. 3 with a slight edge
both games are fantastic. But I will never forget the first time we all got to see Super Mario Bros 3. At the Video Game Championships at the end of the movie The Wizard. Fond memories of losing my shit seeing that game running for the first time.
I'd say 3 but it really comes down to personal experience
