21Mario's Game Gallery

Don't you dare criticize this game. This game is a masterpiece!

Princess Daisy & Pauline both were supposed to be in this overall great game, not Princess Peach (despite not being as bad in this game).

You know, this is just Mario's (so called) FUNdamentals ALL OVER AGAIN!

22Mario's Time Machine

I hate this game. It involves doors that take you to the same place

23Wrecking Crew

This game is great! It's better than Wreck it Ralph!

Also, Wrecking Crew is too underrated! This game is cool! Memorable graphics, great music, a purple Luigi, masculinity, the bonus, the level amount's proportion, & even this game isn't confusing! It also takes place at night! :D So this game could be low on this list.

Did nobody notice, that was Disney taking this game and was made like Wreck it Ralph the movie?

That game is not really that good, it is actually bad one.

Wrecking Crew isn't as bad as everyone says, it's actually quite enjoyable. - recaller

We all Know the Mario Bros's jobs are plumbers, but in this they done construction? An early game in the NES Library Wrecking Crew was about as boring as Luigi was purple.

It's not bad guys it really is not

24Paper Mario: Sticker Star

How about Paper Sonic gets tried out?

Also, Paper Peach should be replaced by Paper Daisy & Paper Rosalina.

Either way, I'd give this game 4861 stars out of 10000.

Princess Peach shall never be the lost Princess as long as she lives. So far, her most recent kidnapping was in the old game of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team whereas Princess Peach was so rude, infantile & bossy. & very cowardly for her tall height.

They need to bring back the concepts that were introduced in Paper Mario and improved upon in The Thousand Year Door (I haven't played the original paper Mario sadly, but I've seen playthroughs on YouTube). its overdue. Super paper Mario was grat too but before we see a sequel to that lets go back to the good old stuff!
This game was incredibly frusturating and BORING! And I thought Mario RPG's were supposed to have good, creative stories and a simplistic yet awesome battle system! - HeavyDonkeyKong

The thousand year door was not a bad game. Peach's voice does not effect the gameplay, the dialogue is not confusing, and the title is not stupid. The thousand year door is one of the main concepts of the game! How is that confusing? - HeavyDonkeyKong

Could you stop talking about how a game would be better if it would be replaced by a different princess. It is starting to annoy me and all princesses in the Mario series are bad and peach is worst out of all of them.

They can't stop focusing on peach. WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE isn't IMPORTANT? That's like saying BOWSER isn't important! Peach is the one you have to save and in the paper Mario series, she has proven her strengths. - DCfnaf

Some people couldn't even get past this whole game because WHEN YOU HIT A ENEMY IT'S JUST 1 DAMAGE! The royal sticker star levels are very hard.

25Mario's Fundamentals

Just 1 Year before the great Super Mario 64 was realased, Nintendo made a game for you to do whatever you want with the plumber... like play chess or go fish.
One intrusting note through this was the first time players heard the current voice of Mario.

Mario's Fundamentals is so underrated!

I'd give this game 13 stars out of 20.

The game seemed a bit interesting... But it's so underrated some how

A bit underrated, considering it was the first time Charles Martinet provided Mario's voice. - Cobalt

26Mario vs Donkey Kong

Awesome, underrated game with unique puzzles and visuals, with exceptional gameplay. The only thing lacking here is the story, but it's not really important in a game like this. - Cobalt

Why is this game here? I played it a couple of years ago on an emulator and it is amazing. It got clever puzzles the controls are actually fluid and the graphics are so colorful. The storyline is recycled thoug, no originality here. Saving Daisy from the mighty ape. It is like saving Peach(Toadstool) from the mighty King of the Koopas. But the gameplay is MIND BLOWING. Like literally. - OldSchoolGamer1983

27Mario Tennis

Uhh... The picture next here is Mario POWER tennis not the virtual boy version. Its supposed to be the prequel not the sequel!

I would give Mario's Tennis on the Virtual Boy an 8.3.

I would give Mario Tennis on the N64 a 7.6.

I would give Mario's Tennis on the Game Boy Color a 5.3.

I would give Mario Power Tennis on the GameCube a 2.6.

I would give Mario Tennis: Power Tour a 3.5.

I would give Mario Power Tennis: New Play Control a 2.1.

I would give Mario Tennis Open a 1.7.

So yeah, I hate Mario Power Tennis but not the underrated Virtual Boy version of Mario Tennis.

Why is that game there I think it's the best Mario tennis game ever (apart from the 3ds version)

Past this point it's good games if you read on your gonna get mad at your favourite games probably there

The virtual version is boring and red and black. And it's just boring tennis, nothing special, and repetitive. Very uncreative!

28Paper Mario Color Smash

It's Sticker Star 2 for the Wii U. (Need I say more? )

It's called SPLASH. And the game is not out yet. Though I do think it'll be sticker star 2 - DCfnaf

The game is actually good, it actually has a plot, heartwarming seqences, and a better battle system, ok the battles are still based on sticker star, but you acctually get something. I say get it later.

29Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels

This is why they're called the lost levels when one of the earlier games were released, the Japanese people thought that some of the levels were too hard for Americans. For the English release, the hard levels were taken out. These levels are known as the lost levels. Later, they were released in America seperate from the actual games. You really can't complain; These levels were made to be impossible.

What?!? This game may be hard but keep pressing on! I've finished the game an it is awesome! - HeavyDonkeyKong

There could be a Super Mario Advance 7: The Lost Levels, please.

Megaman And Bass is Better Than This Crap

30Mario Strikers Charged

Say what now?! This game is the best game

The Mario Strikers series could've taken place in British Columbia where Next Level Games actually is. & why was Super Mario Spikers discontinued?

This game is cool but could use improvements.

Toad's a puny sidekick while Peach is one of the main players... I'm done. - KennyRulz244444

31Mario Kart: Double Dash

Man, this game made Mario Kart stink. Oh my god! This game could've had the same graphics as Mario Kart 64 & Mario Kart: Super Circuit, but guess what? It was originally going to have the good ol' SSBM grephics. But then Mario Kart: Double Dash is ruined. This is the worst Mario Kart ever! Oh my god, this game is not the best Mario Kart game. The game is not all bad, but it is still awful since release. And you know what ruined the game?! Peach & Daisy. Re: they are wearing dresses, have extremely annoying voices, suck at tricks & are the least eger to win & come in first place, especially Peach. Man, talk about Peach & Daisy's annoying hairstyles. Why didn't Pauline replace Peach anyway? Seriously, this game fits in the top 10s.

Anyone who hates this game deserves a chance to die! Take it off this list!

This game is not for you. Worst Mario Kart ever! Mario Kart 64 is much better than this!

Not good, but does not deserve to be on this list

32Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Who retarded put this epic game here? Is one of best rpg series and the dad of Mario & Luigi series

Hey! This game is awesome! Why would you put this wonderful game on here? And this high too! 31? That's insane. You're insane, whoever put this on here! You probably suck at it. It should be removed, or at least, lower.

WAY lower. - smrpg1996

The only thing that we must criticize is Princess Peach getting sick of her adventure before the final boss, if you failed on anything/are stuck on a level & the fact that this game doesn't (also) take place in Western Canada. This game is overall great, but Princess Daisy could've replaced Princess Peach.

To anonymous that hates Daisy: She's way better than Peach. Deal with it. You've probably played her once.

Super Mario RPG is the best Mario game in my opinion. I just wish Luigi and Daisy were in it! - smrpg1996

I will sound weird... but I will do it. THIS GAME SUCKS!

33Mario Tennis Open

They had not enough time for Rosalina, but for useless character like Metal Mario, they had a lot of time.

Because princess peach is the princess of the mushroom kingdom. And Mario lives in this kingdom.

This game has the worst roster ever in history of the Mario games. Seriously, Rosalina gets replaced by a random luma and DLC's just for re-textures for the main characters. Pretty ridiculous. That japanese guy who chooses the characters for these Camelot-games need to be fired.

So the roster is the reason this game sucks? IT doesn't AFFECT GAMEPLAY - DCfnaf

Mario Tennis Open aka Mario Penis Open.

Also, I'd give this game 14521 stars out of 100000.

I am mad that Rosalina is not in this game either.

34New Super Mario Bros. Wii

For the love of God, stop whining about how you have to rescue Peach! If you hate a Mario game for that, you hate almost all of them. - Garythesnail

Frustratingly hard, 1000 times harder than NSMB DS. I also hate Bowser jr's role in this game because it is unfair he could be the leader of the koopalings although he is younger

Peach haters have the right to blame Nintendo. Nintendo originally planned Peach to be playable but they scrapped that because of how Peach's Dress to move.

At least the propeller hat did well.

35Paper Mario

You gotta be kidding me. How the heck is this game on this list? This game was the epitome of fun on the Nintendo 64 and virtual console.

I don't want to raise a finger of objection, but let's look at this game with a bit of critique. First of, the gameplay is always important. And given this was Mario's second coming into the RPG genre, the story needed to be kept simple for new gamers. Unfortunately, that does not excuse poor writing. And its boss fights aren't that creative either. Very minor nitpicks, but it's worth noticing.

Why the heck is this game on the list?!?! This game is amazing! Take this off! - Aaa2

One of the best Mario games out there. How is this on the list? - Cobalt

36Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games

Because Diddy Kong, Rosalina, Kirby characters & Zelda characters didn't go everywhere in Vancouver, this game sucks. I'd give it a 7 out of a 10.

This is supposed to be "Mario & Mega Man at the Winter Olympic Games"!

I agree. Luigi, Princess Peach (the least capable athlete), Waluigi & Yoshi were supposed to be replaced by Diddy Kong, Rosalina, King K. Rool & Captain Syrup from the Wario Land series.

NOo! I love this game! - SonicFan4Life

38Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games

Rosalina only had to be in the Vancouver Olympics, but it wold be epic if Rosalina were in the Vancouver/Seattle 2028 Summer Olympics.

This game sucks. Even with a new Wii remote and Motion Plus it's still horrible to control.

Peach & Daisy lack grace. This game is terrible!

Lol peach screwed up - wenkernboys01
