Vote: Best Mario Game Ever – Semi-Finals
This “Best Mario Game Ever” tournament went on hiatus during the E3 season, but now that that ordeal is over and done with we can get back to more important things. (Kidding, kidding.) For those who have a hard time remembering back to last round, we knocked out the 3D-gaming patriarch Super Mario 64, the visually and stylistically excellent Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, this past gen’s seminal Super Mario Galaxy, and the tropical vacation crisis of Super Mario Sunshine. Those are all such masterpieces that one may wonder, what kind of games could possibly knock them out of a tournament? But, we aren’t talking about a bunch of “commoner-folk” games here. We’re talking about video gaming’s biggest series. A franchise that taught the world (including game developers) just what a video game is.
So, to determine the best Mario game ever is almost like saying which one of your children is your favorite? You adore them all and you would never forget any of them. But, everyone has a personal favorite, one that “speaks” to them in a whole different way that the others. The same applies with Mario games. Everyone has their personal favorite. The one that meant something to them on a whole different level. So, help us determine which Mario game is the most beloved by the fans by voting in this semi-final round. Which one is the Best Mario Game Ever?
1. Super Mario Bros 3 (NES) –VS– Super Mario World (SNES)
