Re: Super Mario Games - Which one's are the best?
Yoshi's Island (if it counts)
Super Mario World
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
Super Mario Sunshine
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Mario Kart: Double Dash
Mario Party 2
Are my favourites. Others I really really like are Mario 1, Mario 2 (Lost Levels), Mario 3, Mario Land, Mario Land 2, Super Mario RPG, Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart Wii, Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, Mario Party 3.
There aren't many I don't like though. The only Mario games I can think of that I genuinely dislike (other than those famously shitty ones like Hotel Mario) are Super Paper Mario, the six hours I spent playing Paper Mario Sticker Star, and Mario 2 (the USA one) other than the first world.
Not played Mario 3D World or Bowser's Inside Story yet, both highly rated games, though I own both and will get to them eventually. Don't care for most racing games so even though I usually like Mario Kart I've only played 90 minutes of 8 and will probably never bother with 7 or any other game in the series from this point onward. I also haven't played the Wario Land games in years if you count those. Certainly been long enough that I don't remember them whatsoever.
Yoshi's Island though I think is maybe the best game I've ever played. I will say however it's a different (and much, much, much better) game going for 100% completion instead of just playing through it.
