Classic 2D, when it comes to series as a whole.

Best game? Mario 64, so classic 3D but only for that game.

Batman: Arkham City is the best game of all time.

Galaxy is Classic?


Classic in terms of it's gameplay style. With the exception of the FLUDD mechanic in Sunshine and the gravity mechanic in Galaxy 1 and 2, the gameplay in those three games are similar to that of Super Mario 64. Whereas Super Mario 3D Land has a fixed camera style gameplay and while you have 360 degrees of motion, you are still on a fixed path like you would be in a 2D Mario title.

I don't think I can pick a favorite! I like them all, except maybe Classic 3D. Just ranking the games alone, I'd say, approximately, YI > NSMBU > SPP > SM3DL > SMW > SMB3 > NSMBW > NSMB > NSMB2 > SMB2 > SML2 > YIDS > SMB > SML > SMB:TLL (eliminating Classic 3D because I haven't played Sunshine or Galaxy 2 and haven't really played enough of Super Mario 64 or Galaxy 1 to say for sure). And, obviously, I haven't played Yoshi's New Island or Super Mario 3D World, though if I had to guess based on current info, I'd probably put the former between Super Princess Peach and Super Mario 3D Land and the latter at the top.

Yeah, I'm kind of the same way. Although I've played all of the 3D Mario titles, there's just something about them that doesn't click as well with me as the 2D ones do (or 3D Land). I still love them and I'd play them over most other games, but if you put them next to almost any 2D Mario title, I'll take the 2D one. I think for me it's:

SM3DL > SMB3 > NSMBW > SMW > NSMBU > NSMB2 > NSMB > SMW2:YI > SML2:6GC > SPP > SMB > YIDS > SMG2 > SMG > SM64 > SMS > SMB2 >>> SML > SMB:TLL

And yeah, judging from the trailers and screens, I have a feeling that SM3DW will be claiming the #1 spot, and I'm sure YNI will be great, too. It's amazing, all of those games, with the exception of the last two, are some of my favorite games of all time.
