For me...

M2 > M3 > M1

I liked Earthbound for its lighter story and humor. Mother 3 was epic, but the areas felt a little too linear and the lack of teleport isn't welcoming. Mother 1 was good, but random encounters and super-mega grinding brought me down.

Mother 3.

It's not as archaic, has much better characters, graphics, plot and music.
And it's got a fun spin on the Mario RPG series battle systems. Tapping a to the beat of the music to combo.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

Mother 2 and 3 are a couple of the greatest games ever, IMO. Their narratives are hard to compare.

It's hard to choose between them.

No offense, but it's really not.

One has a good story, dialogue, and decent battle system and music.

The other has a great story, dialogue, actual characters, a much improved battle system, and what is in my opinion, the greatest soundtrack of any game ever.

Not to mention 56 (great) battle themes.

I'll give you the battle system is objectively better (though still not stellar). The music is more subjective, but yeah, I'd probably agree with you.

The story, dialogue and characters in the games, though, are pretty different. One starts off as a parody of 1990s suburbia in the paradigm of the hero's journey. The other is a more personal journey watching capitalism and evil forces corrupt a utopia.

Pretty different, in my opinion.
