21 Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story

Amazing game that shows what we love about mario and you can even play as bowser! This game is a MUST for all DS owners even though I wish it was longer. Also uses the DS feature very well using the DS mic and holding the system sideways.

Really? Number 24? I HAVE FURY! Great soundtrack, wonderful characters, high replay value, fawful, the enemies! How is this 24? Hands down the best Mario game.

It's so nice, you actually get to play as Bowser. And he's the MAIN CHARACTER. And Fawful is in it. Personally all games with Fawful in it are really good. It's this and Super Mario 64.

23? Should be in the top ten at least. It's my favorite video game. - DCfnaf

22 New Super Mario Bros. U New Super Mario Bros. U

I find it a little bit to hard for beginners

Good music, funny storyline, and great characters, especially mr l

Are you sure you're talking about New Super Mario Bros U? Because that sounds like Super Paper Mario

One of the best games I've ever played. If you don't have a wii u than you don't know what your missing out on. Nintendo, a big hats off to you for making this game. It is my favorite game of all time and we finally get to see Mario in high definition!

NSMB U. It improved upon all the NSMB games, with a new powerup, new yoshi mechanics and wonderful backgrounds which nobody looks at and the stages are amazing. You get so much content besides the story mode, for me, it is a 8/10. It could maybe improve a bit upon NSBM Wii, but the rest was nearly perfect.

23 Luigi's Mansion Luigi's Mansion

For all of those who say this game sucks, I'll say this as family friendly as I can. You are the most idiotic morons on the face of the Earth. This was the kick of game for the GameCube, and it was amazing. Favorite game of all time. - ckets4769

I still play it and my favorite mission was that little baby - fuekongyang

So much better than Dark Moon. Although Mario is not in it, Luigi is a lot better than Mario and makes this game awesome. If it was Mario's mansion, it would not be good.

If anyone hates this game they suck

24 Super Mario Maker Super Mario Maker

If u don't have Mario maker it means u don't have a Wii u because this is best game ever

You make your own Mario levels, your own creations of the gaming mascot, yet its only number 44. *sigh*

Every Mario fan wanted to build their own Mario levels since 1985 and all our childhood dreams came true HAPPY 35TH ANNIVERSARY Mario

This is a masterpiece for a console that didn't sell that well!

25 Mario Kart 64 Mario Kart 64

A pretty fun game, especialy with two players. The emulator version is like playing on a console! - LDes

Now AVGN Talked about Putting 64 At the End Of Everysingle Title That
A Game Has a Prequel On the Nintendo 64. But Who Cares Same & Fun as the One On
Super Nintendo.

This game is too low on this list!

Don't vote for this if you don't like the voices

26 Mario Kart DS Mario Kart DS

It's the best game I ever played! I still have the game and I'm still playing the game from the beginning. Fun missions and fantastic races! I love rainbow road and think of it as one of the best tracks on the game. If you buy the game, you would enjoy the whole thing!

The most wonderful game ever. A fun game that can be played anytime. Fun missions that you can play and fantastic races that you will LOVE!

Best Mario kart game I ever played

Amazing, one of the best!

27 Mario And Luigi: Superstar Saga Mario And Luigi: Superstar Saga

This isn't a traditional Mario by most people idea of a Mario game, this is the the perfect blend of comedy, RPG elements, and Mario AND Luigi. The first title to give the real meaning of Mario Bros. The only reason this is lower on the list is because it wasn't as renown as its fellow mario games. I assure that you'll that it would be one of your favorites if you got this game.

Love it, but since I didn't play it first, I don't have the appreciation for what it brought to the series and innovated for future Mario and Luigi games. Still love it, but I don't have that level of nostalgia or anything. Also, the story wasn't as thought out as future Mario RPG's, but the humor was great and the gameplay was fantastic, especially considering how many crazy things Mario and Luigi could do that got scrapped in later games!

This is actually one of my first Mario games. I thought it was really fun. All of the cool levels and story. The funnest parts were the mini games!

This is probably my favorite Mario game, the levels were fun and creative.

28 Mario Party 9 Mario Party 9

I hope the car explodes and I hope the traditional way of getting stars come back, I know I had to run across the game board but it was FUN

Why was Princess Peach in Mario Party 9 instead of Rosalina. Rosalina's intelligence is sexier!

Is this supposed to be the best of the worst Mario Party game? - Idontneedausername

This one ruined the Mario party series

29 Super Smash Bros.

Good thinking. But I don't think its just a mario game. Its got other neintendo characters

Why is this game still below Melee.

Although Melee is stronger than the original, this is the BEST Mario game ever. But why was Princess Daisy not in this game?!

This is not really a Mario game its more of a crossover game but its still awesome

Not that much Mario

30 Super Mario All-Stars Super Mario All-Stars

The wii version is terribly hard and worthless to buy

It Just Features Previous Mario Games On the Oringinal
Nintendo. Mario 1,2,3. & a Bonus Game Called super Mario bros the lost levels
Which was the japan verison of Mario 2. Which will Come On The List Soon..

They change super Mario bros 1, the lost levels, 2, and 3

31 Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Mario and Luigi: Dream Team

This game is EPIC! The only thing bad is the fact that Fawful don't appears!

Mario and luigi dream team is awesome and its a rpg game.

Daisy should've appeared, not Peach.

Imagine if Princess Peach had the same voice as Princess Daisy.

My first Mario game... - Idontneedausername

32 Mario Kart 7 Mario Kart 7

I love it I'm the grand supreme master at rainbow road :) but WHERE is waluigi? I know its weird but he's my favorite character :(

It's so awesome even though there aren't as many characters in the Wii Mario kart and the tracks are pretty cool

Great game, great challenging courses. Only flaw is lack of characters. - matty925

Number 1 In my opinion.

33 Mario Party 8 Mario Party 8

I can not believe the hate towards this game.

When I was 5, I had no idea who Mario was. Then I saw my parents play this game and I thought, "hey, this looks fun"
Maybe I should play this game. So I played it, and my gosh. I have never been so addictive to a game before. I spent months playing this game. Then on Christmas I got my own DS and I got Mario party DS. It was fun, but not as good as Mario party 8.

Next year I got a GameCube for my 8th birthday. I got Mario party 5, 7 and 6.

And of course years past and I got so many other Mario games like super Mario bros 3, the Mario kart games, Mario galaxy, and others, but no matter how fun those games were. They will never top the first Mario game I ever played. Mario party 8.

Mario Party 8 is The Best Mario Party Game Up to Date Just Because its Just a Fun Game to Pick Up and Play and Screw Up Your Opponents

I like the music and playable characters

This game is a little good

34 Super Mario Kart Super Mario Kart

This game is so awesome that it should be above all the other terrible Mario Kart games that came after Mario Kart: Super Circuit.

I think Peach plays a main role in the franchise so yeah.

Why is this game so low on the list?!

Princess Daisy should have the main role, not the pathetic Princess Peach.

Also, this game is too low on this list!

35 Super Smash Brothers - Nintendo 3DS Super Smash Brothers - Nintendo 3DS

Why would all 7 gaming companies agree to cut Princess Daisy of Sarasa Land from this version of Super Smash Bros. 4?! She didn't even appear as a trophy! It's not fair! Daisy has been around for 25 years, & it's not even the Year of Daisy despite 25 whole years passing! Daisy isn't even in Mario Party 10 yet! Nobody can praise that! Daisy & Rosalina both deserve to be the top 2 most major female gaming characters. But Princess Peach in this game?! Give Princess Peach a giant hiatus & let Daisy & Rosalina take the spotlight, please!

Gee, why did they cut Princess Daisy in the Japanese version?

I should defend this game by saying that it's the only smash that you can take (Pretty much) anywhere with you. The Wii u version is better, but regardless, SSB for the win!

I like this game, too much dlc

36 Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

Incredibly awesome experience, a sequel the original deserved.

Epic I love horror and ghost games

This game is truly Canadian other than truly Japanese due to the fact that both the Japanese Nintendo & the company from Downtown Vancouver called Next Level Games made this game.

Better than the crappy game cube version

37 Super Smash Bros. Melee

Best. Game. EVER! I got this game with my GameCube and I loved this more than Brawl because it's a lot easier to knock people off the stage in Melee. Buy this game now!

The first Gamecube game I got this was around the time when this first came out.
I even still play it today!

38 Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

One of the first video game I ever played and one of the best one the original game boy. Memoriable music and levels and cool bosses

We know this isn't the oldest on the list, but Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins deserves to be at least top 3 on the list.

I never expected Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins to be at 39. This game deserves to be in the top 5s. I love everything about it! This game marks the debut of Wario, my favorite character and its graphics and bosses are just perfect. And the levels? COME ON! THEY'RE ALL AWESOME!

Best game ever! Graphics great gameplay great everything great!

39 Mario Party 7 Mario Party 7

I had no choice t get that game & play it.

I was even forced by my mom to play as Princess Peach.

Yoshi & Princess Daisy sucked too.

Best Mario game. Compare this to a new one such as Mario Power Tennis. See the difference? I love Mario PARTY 7 THIS MUCH!

40 Mario Super Sluggers Mario Super Sluggers

This game is really fun. I was a little doubtful at first, after the disaster that was Sports Mix, but once I played it, I was amazed at how fun this was. The character selection was huge, the gameplay was very entertaining, and it all around improved on the gamecube version. This game instantly became tied for my favorite game, with galaxy and Pokemon Gold. I can say, with confidence, that this is the best Mario sports games and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something different or just looking for a fun game. I still play it to this day. Thanks for reading all of my rant, and have a great day. - NorthernEel

This game is amazing! It have every single good character except Dry Bowser and Rosalina. The stadiums are nice, the challenge mode is great, and even though baseball is not even my favorite sport (go basketball! ), I still really enjoy the game.

I like this game because it introduces a lot of new characters. I didn't even know who Dixie kong, tiny kong, knitter, and a lot more before I got this game.

One of my favorite Mario games to date
