Top Ten Mario Games You'd Most Like to Rate

The Mario franchise is one of the greatest of all time, all games with different qualities. How would y'all rate them? Let's find out.
The Top Ten
1 Super Mario Odyssey Super Mario Odyssey Product Image

It's widely accepted that Super Mario Odyssey is one of the best Mario games ever released. This game was so addicting and fun that I played it for a total of over 115 hours back in 2017-2018 when I got it. It revolutionized the 3D Mario games for the better, and has the biggest and best excuse for the player coming back to the game even after you've beaten the boss, becuase there's 880 moons in the game (+ another 119 that can be purschased in the shops), all scattered throughout the kingdoms, and collecting them is just so much fun! Unfortunately after that it kind of loses its replay-value, but it was an EXCELLENT time while it lasted.

8/10 this game is pretty fun I beat it twice

2 Super Paper Mario Super Paper Mario Product Image


This game was just really amazing on so many levels. I did get it kinda late, but once I got my hands on it, I beat the entire game in just four days, because of how addicting and interesting it was. It has one of the best plotlines in any mario game, going incredibly deep and not being afraid of being incredibly dark at times (such as River Twygz bed and the destruction of Sammer's Kingdom for example), while at the same time keeping a somewhat child-friendly tone, as in the first world, and having tons of humour. The change from an RPG to a platformer is something most people didn't like, and while I agree it removes some immersivness, I thought the game was less frustrating and clunky that way, which made the experience much more fun. Overall, Super Paper Mario is one of my favourite Mario games of all time.

3 Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Product Image


In my opinion, Dream Team showed us some of the best sides of the Mario & Luigi games. It might not be the most innovative of the franchise, but for what it was, I loved pretty much every part of this game. Ok, the beginning was a little slow, with the first three locations, but after that, it immediately becomes amazing! The dream world concept is one of my favourite things ever, as dreams is an interesting part of life, and it's amazingly re-imagined in this game. Visiting the dreams of Luigi, we can use luiginary works to our advantage to create a tree made of Luigi for example to fling ourselves to other places in the location, it's just really interesting. The villians are Antasma and Bowser, and oh my are they awesome. Antasma is a great new villain, and the character development of Bowser throughout the series has lead to him becoming an actualy threat in this fourth game of the series, and I love that. And the locations..., now I'll agree the first three aren't ...more

4 Super Mario Galaxy 2 Super Mario Galaxy 2 Product Image

What's the better game between Super Mario Galaxy and its sequel? Well there are many right answers, and each game does something better than the other. To be honest, I'd say they're equally great, as they both have pros and cons over each other. If I'm being as specific as possible though, I think the second one is the slightly more fun one. Mainly because this made everything that was bad with the first one good. There is a bigger and better special world. And when you've completed Bowser's Galaxy Generatior fo rhte second time as Luigi, you'll unlock the green stars, stars scattered around in galaxies, hidden. And then, you'll unlock one of the hardest levels of all time; Grandmaster Galaxy - The Perfect Run. Anyways, one thing this game did worse though was making the levels much more linear, in contrast to some of the amazing open world stages of the first game. But everything else about it is better.

5 Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story Product Image

Oh yes, Bowser's Inside Story is without a doubt the most acclaimed one of the Mario & Luigi franchise. Well, the original at least. I only played the remake, but it's the same thing but better and bigger. It almost was my favourite. I just think Dream Team resonated with me more, as dreams are more interesting than the body. Essentially most of the gimmicks in that game were improved versions of stuff that was originally from this game? The dream world? Well it's 2D, and Bowser's body exploration works like that in this game. Giant battles? Also from this one. It goes without saying this game is more innovative, not just because of that, but also because Mario and Luigi aren't the main protagonists. They're actually deutoragists, as Bowser is the star in this game, whereas Mario & Luigi explore his body for the most part. Bowser is a really interesting character, as his moveset is completely different. Fawful is the villain, returning from Superstar Saga, being incredible ...more

6/10: It's sequels were better

7 Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga Product Image

The very first Mario & Luigi game, and without a doubt the most nostalgic and memorable one. While most features of this series weren't ironed out yet until BiS and even PiT, Superstar Saga is still an immensly fun game, with great humour, an engaging storyline, and a unique main setting, as Beanbean Kingdom does make its locations feel very much alive and unique. For example, the forest is a bit of a spooky area with a castle, the desert feels dead yet very vibrant, etc. Not to mention that it started what I consider to be the best of the Super Mario spin-off series, as it has always been consistent in quality, even Paper Jam.

8 Mario Party 9 Mario Party 9 Product Image

10/10 This was the game that introduced me to Mario. This was my first mario game I ever got as well as my first video game I got. It was the one that made me interested in the series. Everything about this game is just amazing. The fresh start this game delivered in my opinion was full of colour and confetti. The new party mode is a breath of fresh air after nine previous games having all used the same formula, and it delivers itself its own little quirks and fun moments. It's not as great for a long 2 hours+ evening with friends, but the shorter length of the boards make it more efficient if you can't hang out too long with friends, or if you're a busy person (like me). Moreover, even if you don't like the car formula, you can always check out the many minigame mode which in my opinion, are the best this series has to offer! Stuff like Garden Battle, Choice Challenge and High Rollers are just amazingly original and it's hard to not enjoy them, as they're more than just "win ...more

As a source of memes, 10/10. As an actual game, 1/10.

10 Super Mario Galaxy Super Mario Galaxy Product Image

I got this game in christmas 2012, the same time I got the second one too! I did however get this two days after I got the second one. That's because it hadn't come in time so I got this 26th Christmas, keep I mind in Sweden everyone opens christams presents on the evening 24th instead of 25th morning, I don't know why it is so in Sweden, but this year our family made a change so that we open up presents 25th like every other country in the world. Ok, why am I talking about sweden's traditions instead of this game? Anyway, this game is a masterpiece as well! Though a bit overrated. But the soundtrack ios the best thing about this game, and this goes for the second one as well, the oundtrack is amazing. Ok, Gusty Garden is overrated but there are still a bunch of amazing songs. Melty Molten, Bowser Battle and Bouy Base are amazing songs and among my favourite songs from the game! The bosses are nont as good as the second one's but still pretty good! I really like King ...more

9.5/10. Awesome game. It's hard to beat the original. I'm sure most of us played this game at least once.

10/10, duh. Hugely influential and entertaining.

14 Mario Party 6 Mario Party 6 Product Image

10/10 THIS is how you make classic Mario Party amazing! Mario Party 6 and 7 are the gold standard for Classic Mario Party as it has about everything that would make for an amazing board game with amazing gimmicks and unique traits. Up until 6, Mario Party was just like any other generic board game with the only unique substance being minigames. Like, there's barely anything to brag about between 1-5, but 6 throws boredom out of the window and welcomed unique board rules and gimmicks. To start off, there is the day/night cycle on boards, which means that every third round, it becomes day or night, which opens up new pathways and changes up some gimmicks. This is excellent because it makes it more strategic than the rest of the series. Moreover, there are six boards, all unique from one another. Two of them use the classic star hunting mechanic, whereas two others are modified star hunts, and two other boards use completely new rules, like the star stealing mechanic. I love this! ...more

7/10 this game is fun I made a few levels on this game

16 Mario Kart 7 Mario Kart 7 Product Image
17 Super Mario 64 DS Super Mario 64 DS Product Image

Super Mario 64 was great and all, but most people don't aknowledge this remake on the DS, which not only was much better in my opinion, but is also one of my favourite video games of all times, depsite the fact that I got it as recently as in 2020. It keeps most elements from the original to not make it feel too different, while also adding in new content that feels natural to the game. The addition of a playable Yoshi, Luigi and Wario was such a marvellous idea that prevented you from boringly marathon through each course one by one, as some missions required certain characters now. Not to mention there are several new mini-courses, and each main course added at least one new mission..., what is there to complain about the game? Well, the controls are awkward, but they're easy to get used to and aren't infuriatingly unplayable (looking at you Super Mario Sunshine). Not to mention how Luigi removes all difficulty with his backflip glide. This game is just AMAZING!
