It took me years to come to this, but after my Mario replay marathon a year or two ago I decided I like Super Mario World a fair bit more than SMB3.

I still like the weird "blocky" world aesthetics of SMB3 over SMW's smoother looking world design and I love SMB3's variety in the worlds. The assortment of powerups is very cool too. But overall, the levels are just way bigger and more fun in SMW. Replaying SMB3 thesedays, it almost feels like a strange arcade game clearing levels in about a minute, if even.

My biggest gripe about Super Mario World is still the controls. It's a little twitchier than I like. There's a touch of momentum in SMB3, but not as much as the first game, or in the New series.

It's still a great game, of course.

Funny enough, I almost added to my post there that I think SMW controls like a pure dream and can't think of much else that feels better than it. :lol:

Definitely not a huge fan of how the NSMB games feel though.

I know it'll be weird when I finally get to Mario Maker, since the mechanics are supposedly a little different.

Of the 8 and 16 bit versions, I rate them greatest to least as such:

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA)
Super Mario World
Super Mario Bros. 3
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
Super Mario Land

(I can't rate Super Mario Bros. 2 (JP) as I've not played enough of it.)

I enjoy all of those games though, none of them are bad.

I'd rank them:

Super Mario World
Super Mario Bros 2 JP
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
Super Mario Land
Super Mario Bros 2 US

I've actually never played Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (believe it or not), so I can't rank it.

Oh I like ranking things too!

Super Mario World
Super Mario Bros 2 USA
Super Mario Bros 3
Super Mario Land 2
Super Mario Bros
Yoshi's Island
Super Mario Land

Got no opinion on the lost levels. But I do like the new Super Mario Bros series, in fact most of my mario maker levels are nsmb style to take advantage of his kick jump and physics.

Huh, guess I gotta get in on this action, too.

Probably goes something like this: SMW2 > SMB3 = SMB2 > SMW > SML2 > SMB > SML

Yoshi's Island trumps all, and I'm genuinely conflicted on SMB3 and SMB2. Super Mario World squeaks in just under those, because it's still wonderful.

It's harder for me to squeeze in the NSMB games. More thought than I want to put in right now. If I ranked them in limbo, it'd probably go: Wii > NSMB > NSMB2 > U. Despite my gripes about physics (I'd take World over all the New games), NSMB Wii is a fantastic experience.

I will second this. Seriously, it's the absolute best SNES platformer in existence, in my opinion.
