Favorite among all the 2D Mario games

Between all of the main 2D Mario series games, which is your favorite? All of which being:

Bros. (SMB1, SMB2, SMB:LL, SMB3)
World (SMW, SMW2: YI)
Land (SML1, SML2)

Between World and NSMBWii, I find it hard to choose. I know the NSMB franchise is a bit revered by fans, but honestly NSMBWii is some of the most fun I've had playing a 2D Mario yet. Multiplayer is always a ton of fun to play, the secret paths and warps add great replay value (as do the Star Coins and secret world), the little mini-games that levels occasionally have make it fun to explore and take your time (Jumping on Bullet Bills for infinite 1-ups, Red Coin challenges, etc), etc. I don't remember loving the first game all too much, but NSMBWii is always a load of fun to play alone or with friends, and NSMBU looks of similar quality.

Super Mario World has a lot of nostalgia for me too, with the world map that houses dozens of secret levels, worlds, exits, etc (That I'm happy to see NSMBU trying to replicate). I haven't played it in a number of years, but to my recollection it is my favorite among the classic games.

Definitely World and Wii.

The first Super Mario Land was the weirdest Mario game ever (even more than SMB2!). Exploding Koopas? o.O

SMB3 and SMW. I don't really like the NSMB games...
Non-specific action figure for Smash Bros Wii U!

Out of those groups:


My favorite overall would probly be SMW.
All's fair in love and war, kid.

1) SMW
2) SM3
3) SMWii

I always choose old games over new, but if this is supposed to replicate SMW i think this may be my favorite!
