News has been rather light today, so let's kick the night off with an old fashioned playground-style argument about Mario. More specifically, your favorite Mario title. Before you answer, take a look at what Shigeru Miyamoto, the father of the iconic character, told Game Hunters in response to that question:

"Super Mario World (1991) is something that included of course all the action you saw in Super Mario Bros. but it also had the map features, so it also had that element of players having to think about where they were going and what they were going to do next. I also think that it is a game that developed a large number of staff people who became producers and directors."

As a child of the '90s, I have to side with Miyamoto on this one. The overworld map in Super Mario World and other SNES games really was a big deal to me back then, and it still is today. Similarly, that's my favorite Mario title too, unless we're including stuff like Yoshi's Island in the mix. (Are we?)

Review: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

From the moment I played the Captain Toad minigame in Super Mario 3D World, I thought to myself "this would make a great downloadable title." It seems as if Nintendo can hear my thoughts, because it did just that. Priced at a...more

I never thought Super Mario Bros. would make me so angry

In a cramped beachside arcade, sandwiched between Galaga and Mortal Kombat 3, sits my white whale. It's surrounded by restaurants, a roller coaster, churro vendors, and a carousel, this sad little Super Mario Bros. arcade cab...more
