Can't be bothered going through them all but:

Platformer

Super Mario World

Yoshi's Island

Super Mario Galaxy

Note: I probably have went between putting SMB3 and Super Mario All-Stars for number 3 (unless it's the version of SMA-S that also contains SMW and then it's number 1) but I think SMG2 is probably a better game based on the couple of hours I have played thus far.
