Game Debate to the Death! Super Mario series Part 2

10:30 PM on 11.24.2009 // Tom Fronczak
  @Fronztoid

Many castles were pillaged and passed as we went from one Mario platformer game to another last week. Which game's flags gave us the most victory slides? Here are the top results:

  • Super Mario World (33 votes) -- Winner!
  • Super Mario Bros. 3 (23 votes)
  • Super Mario 64 (15 votes)
  • Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (9 votes) -- Tie!
  • Super Mario Galaxy (9 votes) -- Tie!

As for the top results for the least favorite Mario platformer game that everyone wanted to see, here are all of the top ties for worst:

  • Super Mario Sunshine (13 votes) -- Ouch!
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 (13 votes) -- Ouch!
  • Super Mario 64 (5 votes)
  • Super Mario Land (5 votes)
  • Super Mario Galaxy (4 votes)
  • Super Mario Bros. (4 votes)

After looking at the games most disliked, it makes me think a lot of us haven't played the full spectrum of Mario games, and would probably (myself included) change our votes if we ever got around to some of the minor and obscure titles that barely got included in the series.

This week we're focusing on just the RPG Mario games in the series, such as Super Mario RPG, Paper Mario, Mario & Luigi, etc). Which game do you like the most out of the entire RPG Mario series, and why? What aspects of its game design, gameplay, visual and audio experience made up your mind? Give it some serious thought, share your thought process with all of us, and then get some Super Mario friends to join in on the fun. Hit the jump for new bonus questions and next week's debate topic!

BONUS QUESTIONS:

BQ1: What is your least favorite RPG Mario game in the series? Why?

BQ2: Who are some of your favorite party members in fights? Why?

BQ3: Who are some of your favorite story NPCs in the series? Why?

BQ4. What is your favorite item, weapon, power-up, etc in the series? Why?

BQ5. What is your favorite boss fight in the series? Why?

BQ6. What is your favorite secret in the series? Why?

BQ7. What are a few of your favorite levels in the series? Why?

BQ8. What do you want to see the series do next? Why?

SUBMIT YOUR OWN QUESTIONS FOR NEXT WEEK: 

Each week I will post what next week's debate will be, and allow you to all post your own "bonus questions" in the comments for next week's debate. I'll choose the best of the bunch and then we can get some serious feedback from all different gamer perspectives on not just each game/series, but also a few individual aspects of those games/series. Have something you're dying to know what other games thought of in the game or series? Post your question in the comments and find out what the response is!

NEXT WEEK'S DEBATE:

What's your favorite Resident Evil game?

As usual, there's always an open door policy on suggesting future game debates in the comments. So don't be shy!

I can now play the first 20 measures of Little Trinketry at full speed. It ends when you start playing chords with the right hand. Also something about carts #passdatgas [youtube]http://youtu.be/40fulS_olU8[/youtube]

According to fart scientists, the rate of intestinal gas escaping through the anus increases when regular sleep patterns are not observed.

I farted a lot during Mad Max Fury Road. I blamed them on the engines.

Why can't we have more Lovecraftian horror games? It's such a great setting, but nobody ever uses it.

Best purchase I've made in a long time. This little remote controlled BB-8 robot by Sphero is amazing. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/bb8%202.jpg~original[/IMG]

Philosophical question: if the only way to get Batman: Arkham Knight to run decently on my laptop is to lower all the settings and have it run windowed, am I really playing it?

I hate when a new game comes out and D-toid gets flooded with stuff about a game I don't know anything about and I'm just stuck here, sitting with myself and my freeware games...

It is the middle of the night and Yu-Gi-OH is on TV. Are children with insomnia so common these days?
