It’s a me, Mario indeed. The little plumber is celebrating his 36th birthday today on Sept. 13. The Nintendo front mustachio’d Mario has been around for some time. Certainly, to make us feel super old. Shigeru Miyamoto is the magical maestro behind Mario and his creation and without him, where would gaming be?
Nintendo and the first Super Mario Bros. was the gateway to gaming for an entire generation of kiddos and beyond. To this day Mario still sells out when new titles are released. Of course, the reason for that is the games are just really, really great and innovative. We love the little guy and his overalls. Without him, I don’t know if I would have personally even become a gamer.
In order to celebrate we are doing a list of Mario titles from best to worst. These aren’t based on my personal highs and lows of the franchise. This rad list was put together by a site that searches the internet and compiles a list based on what the internet’s favorite titles are.
I’m not going to lie, a lot of these rankings do actually match up with my personal selections.
The list of Mario titles favorite to least favorite goes like this:
|1||Super Mario World|
|2||Super Mario Bros. 3|
|3||Super Mario 64|
