This topic isn't new it's reviving a dead one. All of it is based off of this dead forum- https://www.gamespot.com/forums/nintendo-discussion-1000001/best-mario-game-of-all-time-poll-30958570/

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. I will allow discussion such as someone asking "Why that game?". Remember one's opinion is really just as important as another. Have fun! I would also like you to explain why but that is optional.

1. Super Mario Sunshine -

I dont know this game has always had a soft spot in my heart. I like the F.L.U.D.D no matter what anyone else has a thought about her. Whether i'm playing to beat it without getting a game over or playing it to find ways to abuse F.L.U.D.D.

2. Super Mario bros

This goes without saying it is a great platformer. It has the perfect combination of things that are hard but still possible.

3. Super Mario 3d world/land

These games are one of the best series that I have ever played. It brings back the fun and 3d of super mario 64 and enhances it.

4. Super mario 64

This was a great game it controlled great and it was simply amazing. Not to get it confused with the DS version because that one kind of sucked.

5. Super mario bros 3

In my opinion this is way better than two but not as good as the first one! I love all the new abilities that you get in this game though.

6. Super mario world 1/2

YOSHI! That little dinosaur was introduced and used ever since his appearance he is one of my favorite to!

7. New Super Mario Bros. 1/2/wii/u

8. Super mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

This game isn't as big as the other games but it is still fun to play.

9. Mario party

This game is really only good when you have friends

10. Luigis mansion.

Luigi is mario's brother and I always wanted a game just about him.

Now i get

Magic Egg: Super mario galaxy 1/2

I never got to play these games but I always wanted to. I just bought them online and they shall be delivered shortly

Super Mario Sunshine is an example that there are wrong opinions.

Also lol at Super Mario 3D Land and World splitting a spot.

1) super Mario 3

2) super Mario world

3) new super Mario brothers (ds)

4)Mario 64

5) super Mario brothers

That's it, there's quite a few Mario games I have not played, I haven't aged Mario galaxy because the motion controls killed my enjoyment of any wii game. If it got remastered in future with a normal controller I'd play it.

Not played Mario brothers wii u or Mario 3d land either as I don't have a wii u yet.

I can only list my top five. These are my favorite because they have the most creativity in their design, and don't follow the typical levels of green hills, desert, snow, lava ect.

I flip-flop on my favorite Mario games a lot, so this list could change depending on when you ask me. But for now, here it is (although I decided not to count Super Smash Bros. Even though it's one of my favorite games, I don't think it's strictly a "Mario game.")

1: Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

2: Super Mario World

3/4: Super Mario Galaxy/Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Yeah, I'm cheating)

5: Super Mario 64

6: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

7: Paper Mario (maybe Thousand-Year Door if I get around to playing it again. Haven't played it since 2004)

8: Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (or Bowser's Inside Story)

9: Super Mario 3D World

10: Super Mario Bros. 3

Magic Egg Award: None. Every Mario game I've wanted to play, I've played.

I haven't played a lot of Mario games, but my favourite from what I've played is definitely Super Mario Sunshine.

From the ones I've played, it was the most fun I've had. It was different.

@ahunter2222: Oh by the way, if you're actually going to keep track of this and keep it legit, then feel free to do a Zelda top 10 too... (I'm a sucker for lists/countdowns)... :)

The only games in the Mario series that I feel confident in ranking are the 3D platformers. The 2D ones keep switching around for me.

1) Super Mario 3D World

2) Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Super Mario 3D Land

3) Super Mario Galaxy

4) Super Mario 64

5) Super Mario Sunshine
