Best Mario Game of All Time Poll

I had a great idea for a poll voted by the players. I will periodically come back and check up on this and I think it would be fun. After six months or perhaps a year (depending on progress) I will add up the scores and post the results.

Here's how it works:

Take some time and list your top favorite Mario games in order of personal preference. These include only Mario themed games. Platform games, such as Super Mario Brothers 2, Super Mario World and Mario 64. Mario themed role playing games, such as Paper Mario and Superstar Saga. The list can also include the Mario Kart games, Smash Bros., and Mario themed sports games. All other games when Mario just happens to make an appearance etc. do not qualify as an entry. Such as Donkey Kong and Mike Tyson's Punch Out. Luigi's Mansion games are also accepted. After all it is his good ol' bro.

This is how the points are added up:

Pretty simple. Only the top ten games count as points. You can list more than ten, but after the tenth spot down they do not count for points. Your number one game counts as 10 points, 2nd game counts for 9, 3rd counts as 8. Get the drift? Thought so. So even if it get's to the 10th spot, it still gets 1 point.

The "Magic Egg" Award:

Finally, I got an idea of an award that goes out to the game that has been wanted to play by the people, but never got the chance to play. So, after you make your list, please ad the one special Mario game you always wanted to play, but never had the chance to.. And, if you played them all (Lucky you!!!) , just leave it blank. The game that is added up the most for that will receive the Magic Egg Award.

Here is my list, but I won't count it for the final score. That is up to you! Thanks for reading and have fun with your list!!!!

Please Read: No Bashing over others lists. Remember one's opinion is really just as important as another. Have fun!

I've never really sat down and thought about it. I would usually say SMB3, but I've never beaten it (gotten extremely close though) and now that I do think about it there are other games in the Mario IP I enjoyed more. I'd say my favorite recent one is Galaxy 2. The best M and L game is Bowser's Inside story, the best Paper Mario game is Thousand Year door.

For now I'm just going to say TTYD, simply because everything in that game comes together so nicely to create an incredible game.

Here's a rough list


2. Galaxy 2

3. Galaxy

4. SMB3

5. Super Mario World

6. Bowser's Inside Story

7. Sunshine

8. 64

9. Superstar Saga

10. NSMB (DS)

Again this a tentative list; there are so many Mario games that it's hard to choose just ten.

#13 Posted by Pikminmaniac (8595 posts) -

1) Super Mario 3D World

2) Yoshi's Island

3) Super Mario Galaxy 2

4) Super Mario World

5) New Super Mario Bros. U

8) Super Smash Bros

9) Super Mario Galaxy

10) Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga

Special Egg: Super Mario Bro. 3 (yeah, I know)

Not gonna rank em, but I will say ,my fav all time mario game is Super Mario 64, 2nd fav is Super Mario Bros 3.

#16 Posted by Litchie (16179 posts) -

There are way too many good ones. It's impossible for me to do such a list.. Mine would just have like 10 games sharing the first place.

#17 Edited by ekolite (22 posts) -

@Litchie: That works too. You can just give it your best shot if you really want to rank them though.

#18 Edited by ekolite (22 posts) -

@4myAmuzumament:Yes, I thought about that, but since Smash Bro's is such a fan favorite, I couldn't resist including it. Plus I included Super Mario Kart, which is a racing game. And didn't want to exclude just because Smash is a fighting game. Anyways, keep the votes coming!

#19 Edited by 4myAmuzumament (1743 posts) -

@ekolite: Mario Kart is solely about Mario characters though so it's okay, Smash Bros has nothing to do with Mario aside from him being a character in the game.

this question is almost impossible to answer, but I'm gonna think for ten seconds..........

and my choice is Super Mario World.

that was tough. now I'm perusing my brain for games I didn't think about... like Super Star Saga. Argh.
