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.
