Donkey Kong is a way more epic series than Mario

Donkey Kong Country 2 tested your skills and reflexes much more than any Mario game ever has

DKC2 and 3 are masterpieces, 2 games Id play over the likes of SMB3 or SMW..

Check out these epic songs that make you actualyl take this series seriously..

I prefer SMB2 to DKC2. Let alone put DKC above 3 and world. Still DKC are great games.

Mario's not exactly about being epic. More about being fun and creativity.

I consider Kid Chameloon to be the best platformer of that generation though. Also has some great music. Catchy, nice beat and sometimes even pretty epic.

Well, Donkey Kong did have the best music in Mario Kart 7.

I would agree that the Donkey Kong Country games (including Donkey Kong Country Returns) are better than any 2D Mario game, at least if you don't count Yoshi's Island. However, I'd take Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 over the Donkey Kong Country games any day.

At least DKC games come up with a different formula than grass, desert, water, forest, etc; I would love to see some factory stages or at least some ruins like DK has in a Mario game. The 3D games have always been creative, but I think that DKC games blow 2D Mario games out of the water. I mean, nearly all of DKC3 was based off of Canada, and that game had some of the coolest looking levels in the series. Enemies also vary from game to game, which is a breath of fresh air after seeing a Goomba in Mario for the nth time.

honestly i didn't really care for dkc2 or returns but the other two were awesome(dkc 3 is my favorite)

i think there are a few mario games that couldn't stand up to dkc but certainly not smb3,world,sm64,smb,yoshi's island and galaxy

sunshine,smb2 us and the nsmb i'm not sure if it's better or worse i could lean either way.
but super mario 3dland can die in a fire for all i care.

DKC is average, not even close to SMB3 or SMW's greatness.
