Can we not have both?

I hate 3D Mario games with the exception of Mario Kart, I don't know but Mario just doesn't feel right when it's 3D..

The poll currently lists 3D on top, yet all the replies are saying 2D. Galaxy is easily the best Mario game, no contest. It's better than NSMB, SMB3 and World.

3D, bigger, longer, more fun and infinitely more creative than any 2D Mario game released since SMW.

2D Mario games stagnated from NSMB onwards. 3D Mario games just keep getting better every time.

I love 2D platformers, it's probably my favorite genre these days. I'm not that big on 3D platformers in general honestly, and I while I really like Super Mario Galaxy, I never liked Mario 64 that much.

1. Super Mario Bros. 3
2. Super Mario World
3. Super Mario Galaxy
4. New Super Mario Bros. Wii
5. Super Mario Bros.
6. Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Lost Levels)
7. Super Mario 64
8. Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA)

Haven't played SMG2 ($40+ still? I'll wait till it drops a little bit) or SMS.

I don't know how you can say 2D. Yes, 2D was great at one time, but how great has it really been in the past decade?

So...what old games don't count or something? It's "overall what do you prefer?"...not "Are the recent 2D or 3D games better?"
Most Wanted: Bit.Trip Runner 2 (PC), Final Fantasy X HD (PS4)

Only kids today choose 3D

Or people who aren't nostalgia drones.

Yeah I know, it's cray

Nintendo fans live off nostalgia like normal people live off food, water and oxygen. The SNES is the greatest console of all time, LttP is the best game in the Zelda series, 16 bit JRPG's are the best games of all time, a billion licensed 2D platformers roamed the earth.

The 2D Mario's are way better, however, I don't care much for the NSMB series. The only consideration is that I found I enjoyed Sunshine far more than 64 and Galaxy; but I have yet to play Galaxy 2. My favorite is Super Mario 3 followed close by World.
This doesn't look like an accident...
