Game Debate to the Death! Super Mario series Part 2

2009-11-24 22:30:00·  2 minute read   ·  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!

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.

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