I would say that SMB3 and The Thousand Year Door are my favorites, but nostalgia definitely has to play a big role in them. Great vid.
Point taken. People usually consider what they like most, or what their favorite is to be the "best". Most of the time the attractiveness to someone of a game depends on preferences, or if that person has nostalgia for it. It's kinda like watching a movie. We favorite games because it gives us what we like best, and what we want. I can believe a certain game is best, because it provides what is best for me, without complaints. Perhaps it's not better than other games, but is better for me to play it, because it gives what I want (personally) within the game. Darn it, I can't help but to paraphrase myself.
I completely agree that SMW is the best of the series. SMB3 was the main hook that set me up as a lifetime gamer (even though I had played the original, and tetris, and some other good NES games prior). It wasn't how much I enjoyed the game, it's that at the age of 5 or 6 I was only good enough to get to world 3 or 4 maybe, while my older sister (17 at the time) would play the game from start to finish, struggling only a little in world 8, while I would sit and watch in awe at her gaming skills.
I dreamt to be that good or better at not only that game, but every game I could get my hands on. I did eventually beat SMB3 but SMW had so much more to offer. I liked the secret exits for levels, the map/level selection of a single giant world made me feel like I really accomplished something by the time I got to Bowser. Nothing beats the first time you ditch Yoshi and save Mario when you are about to fall into a ditch. The sadness of losing Yoshi paired with the joy and amazement when you saved Mario in a last ditch (pun intended) effort. Also nothing beat the first time you mastered the flying trick, and using that to get to areas that normally you needed Yoshi or some extra blocks for made me feel like a genius at the time. The game was just so rewarding with all the little tricks there were to figure out. Also the level variety was a fun aspect that had me triple checking that I found every level in the game as they were all such a blast.
Anyway I can rant (the good kind) about SMW all day, and how much I enjoyed that game. It's honestly my #1 game ever (I am excluding racing games from that list, as I am a racecar driver in reality, so they are up by default)
Now to list all the mario games I loved/love in order....
1. Super Mario World
2. Super Mario RPG
3. Super Mario Kart (putting the franchise here, 3DS one is my fav right now despite fond
memories of the old ones)
4. Super Mario 3
5. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (yoshi game technically, yes)
6. Super Mario 64
7. Paper Mario
8. Super Mario 3D Land
9. Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
10. Dr. Mario
11. Super Smash Bros. (also not solely a mario game obviously)
12. Super Mario Bros. 2 (US version)
zomg this was a long comment (sorry lol) *edit for odd formatting...*sigh**
I was born in 83 and got to enjoy Mario from the very start (on donkey kong haha). No but I agree, my most fond memories were with Super Mario World. SMB3 was great, but it just isn't my fave. Attack me if you will, but I loved Mario Sunshine. And I never played Galaxy, so I can't give my opinion on it. here is my list (ONLY from what I've played. NSMB games aren't very good IMO).
1.) Super Mario World
2.) Super Mario 64
3.) Mario Sunshine *dodges fruits and veggies thrown at him*
*Special Mention: Mario Land 2 (for game boy) and for some reason, I played a lot of Mario is Missing and, liked it O_O
I would go with SMB3 just cause it is a little more challenging...I remember renting Super Mario World and beating it on the first night.
see, I love all those games, for some reason though SMW2: yoshi island is the one I would go back to the most that game is so good, cool,and unique. Sure there's the crying baby sound that is horrible but everything else is so good,music,graphics, challenge it's got everything you want .
If I didn't already think that SMB3 was the greatest game of all time, Galaxy 2 would be my favorite.
Great video sir, I agree with all your points about why Galaxy isnt everyones favorite for example.
I agree though mario world is the best 2D mario game i feel that mario 3 is overrated mario 64 is my favorite game of all time slash my favorite mario game due to the fact that im blinded by nostalgia
I like Super Mario Bros. 2, USA and Japanese versions
