Super Mario World: The Best Entry in the Mario Series

BY IAN HUCKABEE: Super Mario World has to be one of the most recognizable titles in gaming. I can certainly agree a part of the reason is that Mario is one of the most recognizable brands, but no one can deny that SMW was just a cut above a lot of what came before it and after it. From the stunning pixel work to the precision of the platforming, to the new enemies that made their debut in this title. Hell, this game was even Yoshi’s first appearance, who has since become a mainstay of the series on account of how adorable he is next to the red-clad Italian plumber.

Since the release of Super Mario World, the series has, of course, had its ups and downs, a strong voyage into 3D with Super Mario 64, and some jaw-droppingly pretty games such as Super Mario Galaxy and Odyssey, But no matter what comes out of the series everyone can seem to agree that coming back to Super Mario World doesn’t feel like a chore.
