With everyone’s favorite plumber celebrating his 35th Anniversary, what is your all-time favorite Super Mario video game from Nintendo?
2020 has been a big year for everyone’s favorite plumber, as Nintendo is celebrating the 35th anniversary of Mario with a ton of game releases and special events. Alongside a special edition Game and Watch system, a pretty sick AR version of Mario Kart, and a Mario battle royale game, one of the biggest announcements from Nintendo was the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection, which features Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy.
While the collection is a timed limited release until next spring, the collection still gives Nintendo Switch owners the chance to experience three of the Nintendo icon’s all-time best games, whether you’re revisiting them after several years or experiencing them all for the very first time. Of course, it’s also a great collection to ring in the milestone anniversary for Mario, and is set to be one of Nintendo’s biggest upcoming releases for the Switch this holiday season.
For our latest Insta-Forum, we want to turn to the DualShockers community and ask: What is your personal favorite Mario game? When did you first play it and why has it stuck with you after all this time? Which Nintendo platform do you think has the best Mario games? Let us know in the comments below.
Since it was the first video game that I’ve ever played, I’ll always have a place in my heart for the original Super Mario Bros. on the NES. That said, personally I would probably say that Super Mario Odyssey is my favorite modern game in the series, though I’ve always had a soft spot for Sunshine, which I think doesn’t get enough credit. I am pretty excited to play Galaxy though in the 3D All-Stars collection, since I never had the chance to play it when it first came out on the Wii.
