ScrewAttack ranks top ten Mario games, SMB3 named top of the heap

3:47 PM on 07.26.2007 // Aaron Linde

In their latest Top 10, ScrewAttack chalked up their list of the top 10 Mario titles -- no easy feat, considering Mario's colossal 200+ game appearances. One caveat, though: to be considered for zee list, the player has to be able to play as Mario in the game, so Mario Picross fans might be a wee bit disappointed. Spoiler alert: coming in at numero uno was SMB3, which will come as a great surprise to almost nobody in particular. A fan favorite for nearly 20 years, Mario's final romp on the NES routinely stomps the competition, even if some folks don't believe it be the last word on platforming that some others would claim. 

The hell are you looking at me like that for? Okay, fine, I'll admit that I preferred Super Mario World to SMB3. I got a thing for dinosaurs, capes, and games that combine those elements, what of it? Hell -- if it wasn't for the fact that Mario was required to be the main playable character to be included in ScrewAttack's lineup, I might even suggest that Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island be placed at the top of the heap. That's right: ultimate blasphemy. I can already feel hatred so thick I could pour it on my corn flakes.

Anyways, this top 10 has been posted everywhere, but damn it, we haven't had a good ol' fashioned fanboy melee in quite awhile. I want to see some blood spilled in those comments, especially if that blood belongs to Nex. His favorite is Mario's Time Machine, owing perhaps to his quaint fascination with, y'know, learning.
