    uhh i guess SMB 3 for me because it was freaking amazing duh :p

    the only thing i remember about SMB 2 was the pain… and as for SMB 1.. it was way too easy

    Mario 3, the world map and power-ups were amazing!

    SMB3!! I hardly remember the first one at all, and, though I remember the second one as well, I don’t think it’s for the reasons you’re asking. =P

    I loved Super Mario Brothers 3. The color palette was fantastic for the time, the sound effects were great, the music made the game even more enjoyable to play + the power-ups were a big treat to have

    SMB 3. Got it as an Easter present of all things, and my family played the heck out of it. We’d leave the console running overnight just so we could pick it up again the next day (take that you limey save games!).

    The original because I only ever played the others at friends’ houses. It came with Duck Hunt and some Olympics Game with a running mat, was a fun trio.

  7. SMB3, definitely. By far the best of them. Even got it on the Wii now.

    Seeing as I had a Commodore 64 back then, I’d have to say Great Giana Sisters (which was so similar to SMB1 that Nintendo got it removed from sale soon after release).

    Definitely SMB (part 1), because it took me months before I could clear the game without using any warps (always got stuck in World 7-4’s castle).
