I absolutely loved New Super Mario Bros, 2 was okay. I didn't like NSMB Wii, haven't tried Wii U yet. I really dislike how they lowered the difficulty, there is no stress anymore! I wish there was a harder mode where: -There weren't so many lives. -Or powerups. -And when you got hit, you became mini mario even if you had a powerup. -Forget about the coins! In all the new super mario games, sometimes I'll voluntarily avoid powerups to make the game about more challenging. Essentially I would love them to go back to the Super Mario World formula :P.

NSMB on the handheld are great games, I prefer the ease of the games over the 80's Mario games.

Sadly, I've yet to play the console versions, although I've own the Wii version.

I'm not a fan of the NSMB line of Mario games

NSMBU is the best in the series so I guess consoles.

i disagree but i will buy the luigi content...looks cool.

picking up items is awkward on consoles..and on handhelds you get to keep an extra item.on reserve.

Consoles by a landslide.

The first New Super Mario Bros. game was awfully easy. The Wii version was a drastic improvement, and the Wii U game is the best of the bunch.

I liked New Super Mario Bros. 2 much better than most people out there, but it is not as good as the two console games either.

NSMBU is my favorite out of the four so I vote console.

Yeah it's no contest, though I don't own the 3ds one yet.

Multiplayer is the only reason why NSMBWii was good, so yeah, consoles is my vote.

I have only played the DS and Wii versions. The 3DS and Wii U versions are still ones I want to play (especially the Wii U version).

The handheld versions are easy as hell, unless you want to take the 3DS versions DLC into account. The console versions can kick my a** in the final worlds/special stages.

Well considering NSMBU is the only good game in the series, I have to say console.

I rank them as this: 

  1. NSMBU
  2. NSMB2
  3. NSMBWii
  4. NSMB
So I suppose console. NSMBU is incredibly fun and my favorite in the series.

This. I couldn't get into the DS version but I did enjoy the Wii version. However, some how this series has lost its flair with me and the wii version was the only one I liked.

The Console versions seem to be more creative and have better level design.

I honestly think I prefer the handheld ones, even though NSMBU is my overall favorite one. Classic 2D Mario gameplay is just perfect for a handheld.

I've only played NSMB and NSMB:Wii. I enjoyed both but NSBM:Wii was a lot of fun with 4 players and also a bit tougher. So I guess console > hand held.

the console games are more complex and in a general way, better

Anyways, I'd go for consoles.

I wish! :P
Three of my friends own a Wii U and I literally spend hours in the Nintendo World Store whenever I visit. I'm hoping to get a Wii U for my birthday, but I'll most likely end up using all of my money for college supplies. Gotta love being poor.~

They work well on both but both the console iterations have been better than the handheld iterations.
