"Its near impossible to pick a favorite Mario game, what games get left out and Aaron has a few top choices that normally are not in the top 3!"

I like this list because it places Mario 2 quite high. I know, Mario 2 was Doki, Doki, Panic, but like the video states, that doesn't make it a bad game. Thing is, i'd love to see a new Mario game riff Mario 2 ideas and have been bummed it hasn't happened yet.

That said, this list is quite good and features a segment from YouTuber MetalJesus! So, you know, watch it.

That really is a hard list to make. I've never played any of the Mario RPG games, and have limited experience with the Party games, but of the games I've played, my list would have to be:

1. Super Mario World
2. Super Mario 64
3. Super Mario Bros 3
4. Super Mario Bros 2
5. Super Mario Land
6. Super Mario Bros (Hard to argue with the original, but I enjoyed all of the other games more when I first played them. I loved Super Mario Bros, but I also didn't have many options at the time)

They're all great games though :)

Super Mario Land was fun but... I don't think it ages as well as some of the other Mario games. 6 golden coins was a bit better and it was still first generation Gameboy.

1. Super Mario Galaxy. Yes, really. More than World, more than 64, this game is amazing.
2. Super Mario World
3. Super Mario Bros 3
4. Super Mario Bros 2
5. Super Mario 64
6. Super Mario Bros (although I have probably played this more than any other. I got my speedrun down to 6 minutes without tool-assist before I realized I could be playing more games instead of playing one over and over).

You know, I'm going to stop there. This is futile. The difference between 2-6 is so minor really it's difficult to sort them. The games in the "main" series are all so damn good, it's just hard to place them. At any rate, the end of the list...

n. Super Mario Sunshine. Again, all the main games are really good, this one included, it just never clicked with me.

Yeah, Galaxy is really, really great. Too bad it's not on PC. 😄

The original game will always be awesome. The first levels will always be burned into my soul :D

Why doesnt anyone have mariokart?
Mariokart is easily number 1. Haha

Sunshine was actually pretty great too.
But all of them are fantastic.

Oh man! I totally forgot to list the Mariokart games!

MarioKart is great, no question. The original is great too and next time I think about a Mario game I will include it.
