« on: March 20, 2018, 12:26:40 AM »
All right, time to see which Mario game is best!

Just give an answer to the poll above!  You can explain your vote in a reply, if you want.  The poll is replaced every week, although I may be late in replacing it sometimes.

The current poll is for the best Mario Tennis game!  The console and handheld versions of the games are counted together in this poll.

Winners
Best 2D Platformer (Division 1) = New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Best 3D Platformer (Division 1) = Super Mario Odyssey
Best Mainstream Mario Kart Game (Division 2) = Mario Kart 8 (Deluxe)
Best Arcade Mario Kart Game (Division 2) = Mario Kart Arcade GP DX
Best Mainstream Mario Party Game (Division 3) = Mario Party 8
Best Handheld Mario Party Game (Division 3) = Mario Party DS
Best Mario Golf Game (Division 4) = Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
Best Mario Baseball Game (Division 4) = Mario Super Sluggers
Best Mario & Sonic Game (Division 4) = M&S at the London 2012 Olympics
Best Paper Mario Game (Division 5) = Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
Best Mario & Luigi Game (Division 5) = Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

On the condition that New Super Mario Bros. U includes the Luigi U expansion (which is the game I got instead of both separately), I would vote for that because it offers a lot of Mario platforming goodness in several flavours that include the tradition gameplay (Mario U), short levels (Luigi U) and the challenges (found in Mario U).

Thank you for reading.

NSLU is DLC for NSMBU, so yes, it counts.

LeftyGreenMario's burned calories and now I'm here and prepared for the face-off!!!

Oh...

*leaves disappointed*

I went for New Super Mario Bros. Wii because it's the first among the 4-person Mario platformers. I guess it's unfair, but it also has modding support including the amazing Newer Super Mario Bros. which really extends its shelf life.

I feel unqualified to vote in this since I haven't beat all of these games...

Just vote among all youíve played.  I havenít played too many of these, really.  Donít forget that playing an amiibo Tap or Smash demo counts as playing it.

SMB2 (specially the 16-bit version!) is still my favourite one from the original 2D trilogy. It's also one of those rare Mario games in which bosses are actually challenging (but still not that difficult). What I didn't like about it is that it was too short, but replaying the game with the different characters (and in different orders too!) gives it replay value.

SMW was great too. They should bring back the feather. The bosses were really easy though (even easier than in SMB3!) except for maybe the Reznors.

NSMBWii is my favourite one from the NSMB ones (you get to see Kamek and Bowser Jr and the Koopalings all in the same game at last!), but maybe I shouldn't mention that because it's the only NSMB I've played.

Super Mario World was more than great. Such creative, challenging, unique levels deserve to be the best in the series despite their simplicity. Also the power-ups and :yoshi:

But the boss fights were too easy.

I choose Super Mario Maker for being able to create things and uses the mechanics of SMB, SMB3, SMW, and NSMB(U).

There are 3 Main Games I would vote for:

Super Mario World (+Great Level Design and Physics)
New Super Bros. (+Some of the best Level Design in the series -Super Mario Bros. Physics)
Super Mario Maker (+The ability to create levels -Super Mario Bros. Physics and a ton of inaccuracies of in each Game Mode)

Overall I'd have to say Super Mario World is the Best out of the three, due to stated negatives (there's probably some for SMW, but I can't think of any).

Of the games I have played, SMG2. But, Odyssey would be there if I played it.

Let's be honest, SM64 is perfect and will never be be beaten by any game that doesn't have Odyssey in the title.
