whew.... and this is it.

the big one.

easily the biggest match of the tournament, of which the winner will likely take home the gold overall.

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the semi finals!!!!!!!!!!!

During the last bracket of the quarter finals Paper mario the thousand years door won the title of greatest Mario RPG by a single vote!!! by just one vote over super mario RPG and in a match that had over 180 votes that's really impressive. Super Paper mario the thousand years door will go on to face mario kart double dash and the mario strikers series for title of greatest non mario platformer in the next match of the semi finals

See updated bracket in posts 2 and 3


But Now...

it's super mario world vs super mario 64. the greatest of the 3D mario platformers vs the greatest of the 2D mario platformers. Classic vs modern, the pinnacle of 2D platforming vs the game that gave all 3D platformers, mario and non mario alike, their ground work. Nothing more to say, it's the battle of the greats!!!


Both of these games are highly regarded! so tell me, between the two, why did you choose what you did?!

This round will be open until wednesday

How the hell did Super Mario 64 win the greatest 3D platformer ever?

64 is the greatest 3D platformer and it isn't even close

It was between Mario 64 and super mario galaxy 2, with mario 64 beating it by only a few percentage points.

That said I voted for mario 64. As great as the mario galaxy games were, I don't think any 3D mario game as ever been as good as the original. Especially the latest outings on the Wii and 3DS which I don't feel hold up nearly as well

I love Mario 64. But super mario world is Mario in my eyes. When I think generically of a mario game, super mario world comes to mind. Takes my vote easily

close match so far
#9GafemagePosted 4/27/2014 6:18:33 PM(edited)
It's a really tough choice - SMW & SM64 are my favorite Mario games by a long shot. I'll give SM64 the edge for nostalgia value & being my favorite game on its system (there's a few SNES games I like more than SMW), but I'm content with either one winning.

Cautiously optimistic about the future of both the Wii-U & Vita.

Pretty much exactly how I feel
