I'm going to say the Kart games have gotten the most enjoyment out of me, followed closely by the 3D platformers.

For me, well...

I would say the 3D games, but I hated Galaxy, Galaxy 2, and 3D Land, so that brings me to the 2D games, but even that was ruined for me. I loved Super Mario Bros 1, 2, 3, and World, but I don't like NSMB at all. That brings me to the Party games, but I only really liked 1, 2, 3, and 6. As for the sports games, I like them, but I can't call them my favorite.

Overall, I guess the RPG games would have to be my current favorite simply because I liked most of them. Mario RPG, Paper Mario, Paper Mario TYD, Mario and Luigi, Mario and Luigi PiT, and although I don't care to beat it, BiS was pretty good as well.

Now days I only really enjoy the Mario RPGs and Mario Kart, while the rest of the games seem to be a slap in the face to my childhood.

2D—more nostalgia and challenge to me. Plus, Mario just seems to fit in a 2D world.

Before the Galaxy games I would definitely had voted for the RPGs, but with Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 being so good it has become a much harder choice to make.

Generally 2D for the fun factor, but the 3D games never fail to impress me either.

2D platformers
3d land was also amazing, i dont know if it is considered 2d or 3d because its kinda a mash of the two.

Hard choice, but I went with RPG's, mainly because TTYD is one of my favorite games of all time.

Here's the order in which I'll choose:
1. RPGs
2. 3D Platformers
3. 2D Platformers
4. Sports
5. Kart
6. Party

I don't have anything against a genre, I love them all.

Bowser's Inside Story involves platforming Mario goodness coupled with the RPG elements and a barebones story. I have to go with the Mario RPGs for that reason. Sunshine and the Galaxy series were good; I'm curious where they'll go next.

EDIT: For entertaining purposes, the Mario sports games are the most fun even considering the Party series. I've had great success with Super Sluggers.
Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.
