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

The Top Ten

1 Sonic the Hedgehog 3 vs Super Mario Bros 3

Super Mario 3, by a landslide. - nintendofan126

Hard choice, both are good games, but I will go with Super Mario Bros. 3.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 gets an 86/100 score.

Super Mario Bros. 3 (original NES game) gets an 86.5/100 score.
The SNES version of Super Mario Bros. 3 gets a 74/100 score.
The GBA version of Super Mario Bros. 3 gets a 54/100 score.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island gets a 99/100 score.
Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island gets a 66/100 score.

Tails' Adventure gets an 88/100 score.

Super Mario World (original SNES version) gets a 92/100 score.
Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World gets a 57/100 score.

Sonic CD gets a 9.1 score and its modern remakes get an 83/100 score.

Dr. Mario (NES version) gets an 84/100. The Game Boy version of Dr. Mario gets a 53/100 score.

Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine gets an 88/100.

Sonic the Fighters gets a 78/100 score.

The original Super Smash Bros. on the N64 gets a 97/100 score.

Sonic ...more

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)

Mario for the win

2 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.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island review
Presentation: 10
Characters: 8
Gameplay: 10
Score: 9/10 (Phenomenal to Masterpiece)

Tails' Adventure review
Presentation: 6
Story: 9
Gameplay: 8
8/10 (Strong)

Tell me why you love both games, but prefer Yoshi's Island. I strongly prefer Super Mario World 2 because it has even more of an adventurous feel and is an overal bigger game. As much as I love Tails' Adventure for the fact that Tails, one of my favorite Sonic characters got his own game (please avoid Tails' Skypatrol) and it feels much more upbeat than kiddie.

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 wins - Mhamad1544

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!

Sonic CD for the win. - Chaotixhero

URGH! I can't PICK! Given that CD is my favorite Sonic game, I cannot pick a fave. Both series and games are phenomenal. Well, Sonic is phenomenal sometimes. Mania was good, Forces was okay.

5 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.

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

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

Sonic Colors.

Dr Mario got 69 dr robotnik got 74

11 Luigi's Mansion vs. Shadow the Hedgehog

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

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

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 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

Sonic Heroes :D amazing game

13 Sonic Schoolhouse vs Mario Type Teaching

Sonic Schoolhouse. I mean, these games are good.

I think Mario Type Teaching

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

SONIC for the win! Even though I like Mario games better

15 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.

Super Smash Bros is a crossover and in Brawl and Wii U, sonic appears. - DCfnaf

17 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

Well personally, I think Sonic Colors is the better competitor to Super Mario Galaxy, or its sequel.

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

20 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island vs. Knuckles' Chaotix


21 Mario Tennis Open vs. Sega Superstars Tennis

Sega superstars tennis I guess, I didn't play Mario open tennis, also sega tennis had characters from other series, not all from 1 like Mario

22 Shadow the Hedgehog vs Wario World

Shadow the hedgehog! That game is awesome. Wario world... not so much

Shadow the Hedgehog gets a 2.8.

Wario World gets a 7.3.

Remember, Shadow is our lord and savior. Definitely Shadow. -shadowswagger922

Wario World. - DCfnaf

Trust me Wario land 4 is more weirder

Sonic CD. At least there's no Wario.

Wario Land 4 because Wario. - DCfnaf

25 Sonic Advance 2 vs Super Mario Advance 2

Mario advance 2 is nothing but a silly port of super Mario world. Sonic advance 2 is fast and awesome. - Chaotixhero

Super Mario Advance 2 gets 5 stars out of 10. Sonic Advance 2 gets 2 stars out of 10.

Too bad Princess Peach is ruining Super Mario Advance 2 & the Modern Sonic designs on the characters for Sonic Advance 2 is ruining Sonic Advance 2.

26 Sonic 06 vs Hotel Mario

Hotel Mario is great despite its ridiculous gameplay, but Sonic '06 sucks all the way.

Hotel Mario is 6 times better than Sonic '06.

Hotel Mario gets a 7.2.

Sonic '06 gets a 1.2.

I like Sonic '06 more because it's so much worse.

Sonic 06 all the time, at least it has better story, levels, and custsense.
I can't call hotel mario a game anymore - Mhamad1544

27 Sonic the Hedgehog vs. Mario Bros.

The original Sonic the Hedgehog gets an 8.2 in every version.

Mario Bros. gets an 8.1 in every version.

So Sonic the Hedgehog will win.

Both games are AMAZING but Super Mario Bros no doubt wins this one because it saved the video game franchise.

Mario bros ( 9/10 ) sonic 1 (9/10 ) so baffle

Mario Bros is way better than Sonic the Hedeghog. Mario beats Sonic and that's a fact.

Princess Peach was some teenager in this game.

Mario galaxy by a landslide!

31 Super Mario 64 DS vs. Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut

64 DS is my childhood. - DCfnaf

32 Mario Kart Wii vs Sonic & Sega All Star Racing

Alex Kidd? Vitural fighters? Wow this roaster is better then just Mario characters. I wonder if the make a third one, put in new characters like Pac-Man or Mega Man because if Wreck-it Ralph can race so can those two - Chaotixhero

Mario Kart Wii sucks & gets a 3.2 rating.

Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is great and gets a 7.9 in general.

So, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing for the win!

Much more variety in stuff plus crossovers make Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing truly Awesome.

I love Mario Kart Wii!

33 Sonic Generation vs Super Mario Galaxy 2

Although I never played Super Mario Galaxy 2 the only thing imma say is that Sonic Generations was a great game, the graphics 10/10, Level Design 10/10, voice acting 9/10, Soundtrack 100/10, all in all it was a great game

I love both games, but I'd have to go with sonic generations.

Generations by the way, and I'm also going with Sonic Generations.

Both are amazing, so it's hard to pick. - DCfnaf

Donkey Kong gets a 6.4.

Knuckles' Chaotix gets a 9.5.

36 Super Mario 3D World vs. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

3D World sucks! I wish this game dies. And Princess Peach was useless. Rosalina is much better in this game.

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric. People say it was horrible, but I really liked it. Especially that one joke in the beginning. ( eggman: you know what's better than an ambush? Tails: an ambush with ice cream? Eggman: that sound delicious, but no! A post ambush ambush! ) don't judge my sense of humor.

Both games are great in my opinion but Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyrics is a game that I will give a chance to. - Chaotixhero

Super Mario 3D World Gets An 8.9/10

Sonic Adventure 2 has an amazing plot, plus it has the amazing Shadow the Hedgehog. Mario 64 is just meh go save the princess again. Sonic Adventure 2 is save the world from being destroyed and defeat some black and red hedgehog that looks like you!

Sonic Adventure 2 is awful & lame.

Super Mario 64 is where it's at!

Sonic Adventure 2 gets a 2.5.

Super Mario 64 is 4 times better, so thus it gets a perfect 10/10 score.

Super Mario 64 is 64 times better than Sonic Adventure 2.

Super Mario 64 gets a perfect 10/10 score on the original N64 version and Sonic Adventure 2 deserves a very bad 0.1 & a half/10 score on both the Dreamcast & GameCube versions.

Super Mario 64 - DCfnaf
