The Mario franchise has made Nintendo a lot of money over the years. Almost game staring the plump princess rescuing, gorilla battling, green dinosaur riding, mustache having Italian dude has been a success. This is s list of the top five Mario branded((As in, they must have his name in the title to make the list.) video games as I see it.
Top 5 Mario Games: 6 Golden Coins.
The second Mario land Game for Nintendo’s highly successful Game Boy system was the debut of both a new power up, and alternative star within the company. Only one of these was good enough to help this game crack the top five.By touching a carrot on screen, Mario acquired a set of rabbit ears that enhanced his air time while jumping. It’s basically the poor mans version of raccoon Mario. Wario made his official debut as a boss character, and later went on to star in his own series of well made games.
Top 5 Mario Games: Mario 64.
As the grandfather of platform mascots, Mario makes perfect since as the one character able to prove that a great 2 dimensional franchise can fair well when introduced into the third dimension. Mario 64 was an example of what 3D platformers should play like. It was fun watching the pudgy plumber scamper around the Mushroom Kingdom, jumping off walls like a parkour expert, and riding turtle shells like they were skate boards. Butt sliding up and down stars was a little weird, but everything else about the game was pretty neat.
Top 5 Mario Games: Mario Kart.
If it weren’t for the lack of corporate sponsorship, cart racing would be one of the worlds most popular automotive sports. Mario Kart games should be seen as a template for potential professional cart organizations. Natural hazards such as oil slicks, banana peels and projectiles that seek out the leader of the race to knock him out, should all be embraced by the governing body. Some people would say those would all be examples of cheating. Those same people probably think Mario is Missing deserves to be somewhere on this list.
Top 5 Mario Games: Super Mario Bros. 3.
If someone walked up to me and asked which Mario game should they play on the original Nintendo, I’d say skip the first two and just play Super Mario Bros. 3. It’s truly the best Mario experience on Nintendo’s 8-Bit console. Mario 3 Has everything. There’s ice levels, lava, light levels, man eating plants, frog suits, dudes that throw hammers at you for no good reason, and you can fly with the raccoon and tanooki suits.
Top 5 Mario Games: Super Mario World.
Mario World may as well be called Mario 3: Super Duper Expanded Edition. The Mario formula was pretty much perfected with Super Mario Bros. 3. Super Mario World is just a slightly better version of that game, but available on Nintendo’s Super Nintendo Entertainment System.. My reasoning for ranking this above 3 lies in the amount of content and extras within World. The multicolored Yoshis found in Mario World all have their own little special attributes and advantages, Beating the secret levels unlocks an alternate graphical skin for all levels and enemies., and it’s more fun kicking Bowser’s tail in this game than in Mario 3.
