Can we not have both?

We impose order on the chaos of organic evolution. You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.

I hate 3D Mario games with the exception of Mario Kart, I don't know but Mario just doesn't feel right when it's 3D..

The poll currently lists 3D on top, yet all the replies are saying 2D. Galaxy is easily the best Mario game, no contest. It's better than NSMB, SMB3 and World.

3D, bigger, longer, more fun and infinitely more creative than any 2D Mario game released since SMW.

2D Mario games stagnated from NSMB onwards. 3D Mario games just keep getting better every time.

2D

I love 2D platformers, it's probably my favorite genre these days. I'm not that big on 3D platformers in general honestly, and I while I really like Super Mario Galaxy, I never liked Mario 64 that much.

1. Super Mario Bros. 3
2. Super Mario World
3. Super Mario Galaxy
4. New Super Mario Bros. Wii
5. Super Mario Bros.
6. Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Lost Levels)
7. Super Mario 64
8. Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA)

Haven't played SMG2 ($40+ still? I'll wait till it drops a little bit) or SMS.

I don't know how you can say 2D. Yes, 2D was great at one time, but how great has it really been in the past decade?


So...what old games don't count or something? It's "overall what do you prefer?"...not "Are the recent 2D or 3D games better?"

Only kids today choose 3D

Or people who aren't nostalgia drones.

Yeah I know, it's cray

Nintendo fans live off nostalgia like normal people live off food, water and oxygen. The SNES is the greatest console of all time, LttP is the best game in the Zelda series, 16 bit JRPG's are the best games of all time, a billion licensed 2D platformers roamed the earth.

The 2D Mario's are way better, however, I don't care much for the NSMB series. The only consideration is that I found I enjoyed Sunshine far more than 64 and Galaxy; but I have yet to play Galaxy 2. My favorite is Super Mario 3 followed close by World.

I don't really like comparing the 2D and 3D Mario games. I love them both but they are different experiences.

My favorite 2D Mario games are
SMW
NSMBW

My favorite 3D Mario games are
Mario Sunshine
Mario Galaxy 2
