Wow....what a sequel. The Tanooki and Frog suits for the win! This should probably be higher on my list...it's possible I played it TOO much!

SMB3 was that i previously expected to be SMB2, i spend uncounted hours on it but never made it through. It was the first game which bothered me for not having a save option, as one world alone was quite time consuming. SMB3 is also the most expensive game i ever bought, spend 139 DM on it (~70 € without inflation). These overprized games made me later a pc gamer...

Silent Gamer Wow! I'm glad I got into the NES later in it's life cycle. I can't imagine paying that amount for games back then

It's really sad to me that this is the only NES game on the top 100 favorite list. Come on! Blaster Master? Crystalis? Mega Man 2? Metal Storm? These all deserve some recognition. They're still really fun and deep games. I understand the point of view that newer games have surpassed older ones, but I think it's really important to have some historical perspective in lists such as these. Historical importance, influence, and innovation should all be considered as important as how "good" games seem to be now. Despite its importance, I can understand not including a game such as Super Mario Bros. because of how difficult the controls are and how simple the gameplay is, but some games (like the aforementioned) go beyond such technical limitations to be worth playing even today. Leaving them off all-time lists disrespects their greatness.

Super Mario Bros. 3 has the best balance between the detailed sprites of the 16-bit era and the intense challenge of the 8-bit era. Although I still have reservations about the map system, I love all the new power-ups and bonus stages. This sequel smoothed out all the edges of the original Super Mario Bros. to provide an impressive, streamlined platforming experience. The addition of a storyline also helped to add depth to the Mushroom Kingdom.

The NES's swan song, and almost certainly its crowning jewel.

This perfected the formula of Mario, with charm, grace and extreme polish. It also has an uplifting spirit to it, especially with the times it can remind you of. The level design is brilliant, the music is brilliant and it showed off the peak of the power of the NES. Super Mario Bros. 3 means so much to my heart and no other Mario game has been able to outperform the charming and top of the line NES classic.

Super Mario Bros. 3 is the defining NES game. It's an untouchable staple of platforming that introduced a lot of fresh ideas and still plays beautifully. This is another game that totally defined my youth.

The first Mario Bros title that gave us a peek at how grand the series would eventually become. The sheer scope of the game, the variety of enemies and level design, and of course the gimmicky-yet-totally-rad costumes make for one of the greatest gaming experiences of its, or any, generation.

Super Mario Bros. 3 is a significant step up from the other games and my favorite 2D main series Mario game. With the introduction of brand new power ups and the world map, this game amazed me growing up.

A platforming masterpiece. There's debate as to whether it's better than Super Mario World, and honestly it probably all comes down to personal preference, but there's no denying that these two games were Mario's peak in the 2d world. My only problem with this game is that the difficulty can be incosistent at times. For example, World 3 was a large increase in difficulty from World 2, but World 4 was much easier than World 3. Regardless, this is one of those games that everyone must play.

Released in 1988. Think about that for a moment.

I don't think I've ever seen a game so loved by so many people. I enjoy it, sure, but I've never understood what made it so god damn remarkable. Yes, the platforming is excellent, the visuals are superb, the level design is top-notch and the music is memorable, but the BEST Mario game? I'll kindly disagree with that declaration. While I've been praising the game so far in this description (that's meta), I believe that to be called "the best Mario game" needs to be not only near perfect, but have moments that stick out every time you play it. Yeah, the giant world was really cool, but there just aren't enough "DAMN!" moments for me to call this the best. A really good game? Yes, but that's really all it is in my opinion.

While the original SMB was a revelation, and World was arguably the fully matured Mario game, SMB3 was when the Mario platformer fully bloomed into everything it could be. Very nostalgic game for me (just listening to the music sends me into childhood memories).
