Top Ten Mario Games vs Sonic Games

Which Mario game is better or sonic game. The choice is yours

The Top Ten

1 Yoshi Island vs Tails Adventure

Why does it feel like all the comments on this site were made by 12 year olds. They always either go, Sonic sucks and Mario is boss; or Mario is balls and sonic would win any day. They don't even have reason. Although Yoshi Island is a significantly better game as it was made for a much more powerful console with much better graphics and gameplay.

I go with Yoshi Island. Tails Adventure is nothing but back tracking over and over again. - Chaotixhero

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island gets a 9.5.

Tails Adventure gets a 7.3.

This comparison is number 1?!?!?! Number 1 should be Sonic 3 and Knuckles vs Super Mario World! That is a much better comparison given that both titles are frequently considered the best out of their respective series!

2 Sonic the Hedgehog 3 vs Super Mario Bros 3

Both games got me really into each respective franchise, or at least had a huge impact. Personally, I prefer Sonic 3 (and Knuckles), but Super Mario Bros. 3 was superb too, for its time (considering Super Mario Bros. 3 came before the whole Sonic franchise)

Why compare sonic 3 to super Mario bros. 3 it's not even debatable. Sonic 3 is much better. None of the 2d Mario games before super Mario world were even good. Super Mario bros 3 is not good but it is also not terrible. Sonic 3 vs world is much more debatable. I love both 3 and world but I would have to go with sonic the hedgehog 3 by a bit. It is my favorite game of all time anyways. - Heatnix23

Both games tie. They are classic and have perfect graphics, classic music, very high nostalgia level and nostalgic gameplay. Sonic 3 has a much better story, though, and it's much less annoying.

Sonic is pure crap!, I prefer Mario! - GumballWatterson

3 Sonic Adventure vs Super Mario 64

Super Mario 64 for the win!

Super Mario 64 (the original N64 version) gets a perfect 10/10!

Sonic Adventure (the original Japanese Dreamcast version) gets a 12/20.

Sonic Adventure (the non-Japanese Dreamcast version) gets a not-so-high 7/20.

Super Mario 64 is 64 times better than Sonic Adventure!

I would give Super Mario 64 a 9.9.

I would give Sonic Adventure a 0.1.

I would go with Super Mario 64! Sonic Adventure is just so annoying & with a horrible storyline. , why play this game? The soundtrack should not exist & besides, the 2-D artwork of this game is scary! So Super Mario 64 is going to win no matter what because this game is so amazing! Man, this game is full of awesomeness! Why? The music, the extremely memorable graphics, this game is HD, and the gameplay rocks!

Sonic adventure 2 battle is awesome.

4 Sonic CD vs Super Mario World

I pick Super Mario world. The first game that had Yoshi! - nintendofan126

Pick Yoshi against Amy Rose. Amy Rose is cuter, but Yoshi can win better!

Super Mario World because it had Yoshi. - recaller

Super Mario world got 94 sonic cd got 83

5 Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine vs Dr. Mario

I think Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, by just a little.

Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine gets a 17/20 score.

Dr. Mario gets a 14/20 score.

Dr. Mario because Dr. Robotnik game was based in Sonic cartoon and this cartoon sucks.

6 Sonic Colours vs. Mario Paint

This isn't a very good match. Mario Paint VS. Sonic Colors? Seriously? That doesn't make sense. Why not Super Mario Galaxy 2 VS. Sonic Colors? That would be better.

Sonic Colors. Cause it ain't a five year old game, - DCfnaf

Whoever put this on thinks Sonic colors is a coloring game for 2 yr. Olds

Mario paint got 99 sonic colors got 78

The Contenders

11 Luigi's Mansion vs. Shadow the Hedgehog

I say luigi's mansion because shadow the hedgehog was too dark and misanthrope

DEFIANTLY Luigi's Mansion Because It's More Appropriate For Children

Luigi's mansion got 79 shadow the hedgehog got 30

Look, I'd compare Wario World with Shadow instead, but I'm gonna have to go with Luigi Mansion - DCfnaf

12 Sonic the Fighter vs Super Smash Bros

Super smash bros. Better game than sonic the fighter. - Chaotixhero

Smash bros no doubter. Super Smash Bros has the BEST local multiplayer in gaming history. - recaller

Super Smash Bros. is perfect in any way & deserves a 9.2.

Sonic the Fighters is good & gets a 6.5.

So therefore, Super Smash Bros. wins. Why? Because it is classic & a crossover. Sonic the Fighers is to hard to play, but nonetheless, it's good.

Sonic is in super smash bros so it really doesn't make sense unless it's the 64 version

Sonic Schoolhouse. I mean, these games are good.

14 Super Mario Land vs. Sonic the Hedgehog (Game Gear)
15 Sonic Heroes vs Super Mario Sunshine

Sonic heroes is OK... I mean it has a great soundtrack, bad controls, cheesy lines, and good graphics. I don't know about Mario sunshine because I never played it. But someone told me it have terrible voice acting. - Chaotixhero

Super Mario Sunshine gets 4/10 stars.

Sonic Heroes gets 3/10 stars.

Super Mario Sunshine for the win, but I still believe that Sonic Heeroes has better themes.

Heroes was the first video game I ever played! So definitely Sonic Heroes

I never played Sunshine but Heroes was a boss game! Gameplay9.5/10
Voices 8/10 Music 10/10 amazing!

17 Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars vs. Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

Judging by my name you would guess I love Super Mario RPG over Sonic Chronicles.

In fact, I love them both.

Sonic Chronicles is underrated in my opinion but I've completed the game countless times. But for a Bioware game I think the graphics needed work. Also, I didn't like the music, which was remixes of tracks from the classic Sonic games. I also like how they extended the story about the echidnas! But I wish they had done a sequel or another Sonic RPG. Because that would be AWESOME!

Super Mario RPG had less playable characters and the story was too simple, but it had better graphics. For a SNES game. The music was amazing and I love the level design. There were also many secrets in this game! Like those secret boxes you could find!
It also had those fun mini games! It was also the first game in the series Bowser was an ally. Eggman was too, in Sonic Chronicles! That's so cool to play as villains. I wish there was a sequel. Or another standalone Mario ...more

18 Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins vs. Sonic CD
19 Sonic Lost World vs Super Mario Galaxy

Both games are good but Sonic lost world have better graphics, better music, and better voice acting than Mario Galaxy. Both games have bad controls though. - Chaotixhero

Man I hate them both. How could you like Peach getting kidnapped when after getting free from Bowser, she lets herself have a near-death experience?! And sonic Lost World? Wasn't Mario supposed to be in this game as well as Yoshi & Zelda characters?

It is not true because opinions are not facts. Peach getting kidnapped DOES NOT AFFECT THE GAME. - DCfnaf

Super Mario Galaxy, sonic copied Mario

Both are some of my favorite video games, but I have to pick Galaxy. - DCfnaf
