Best Mario RPG Game


The Top Ten

1 Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (GameCube) Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (GameCube)

I LOVE THIS GAME. It kills me when people hate on it for trivial things, give it a chance for some of its great qualities that actually matter! If you really can't get into it, that's fine since everyone has different opinions and likes, but at least appreciate why others love it so much...although most people who play this game love it. The story, music, humor, gameplay, originality, bosses, locations, characters, and pretty much everything else are fantastic! This will always be my favorite Mario game even though I love pretty much all of the Mario RPG's for their originality and how immersive they are compared to other Mario games and how immersive they are. That's not to say I don't like all other Mario games though, since I do. Everyone, play this game! Give it a chance if you can't see past an annoying voice or "bad" graphics or whatever, or if you only play "main" Super Mario games-what lies ahead of you is an experience you'll never forget.

Everybody hates this game because of princess peach. Well, guess what? One charcter isn't enough to make a game crappy. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Super story line, great music, drama (I cried playing the game man! ) and TONS of fun. You can play it, your nieces can play it and still it will be awesome. A classic.

3 Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story (DS) Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story (DS)

Had the best music and best story ever!

This game bored me to sleep, who put it there? PIT was better

I really feel that the Mario & Luigi series is the best thing we've gotten from Mario, and this is my favorite entry to the franchise so far. - Garythesnail

Dream team was cool, but I felt that it was just a little bit way too drawn out and tutorial filled. Dreamy Bowser was awesome though. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I only voted because of Fawful. My favorite villian, ever. This is my opinion.

6 Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (3DS) Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (3DS)

This one has best music and longest gameplay, its one of my favorite

Y'know how I said BIS was my favorite entry so far? Yeah, changed my mind. This one became my favorite. - Garythesnail

7 Super Paper Mario (Wii) Super Paper Mario (Wii)

This is unquestionably a lot better than PMTTYD! Oh, man, this RPG has the best graphics, plot, voice acting & music ever! This game totally rocks! I would give this game an 8.3 score.

Super Paper Mario is my favorite Mario RPG due to being one hell of a groundbreaker, great graphics, non-confusing text, awesome characters, great elements, Princess Peach having a much better role/voice that in The Thousand Year Door & Sticker Star.

The top 1 best Paper Mario game is Super Paper Mario. This game gets an 8.3 score)

The top 2 best Paper Mario game is the original Paper Mario on the N64 & Virtual Console. This game gets a 7.8 score.

The top 3 best Paper Mario game is Paper Mario: Sticker Star. This game gets a score of 4.7 score.

The top 4 best Paper Mario game is Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. This game gets a 2.0 score.

This game had best story, it rocks

At first I thought Bowser's Inside Story was the best Mario & Luigi game. Then I played Dream Team and it became my favorite. Then I played Bowser's Inside Story again, and it was my fave again. Then I decided both are tied for me overall. Then I realised SPM was my all-time favorite game in general. :P - Garythesnail

8 Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (DS) Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (DS)

This one isn't my absolute favorite Mario RPG, but I LOVE it! All the Mario RPG games are fantastic in my opinion (with the exception of Sticker Star and Paper Jam, which were alright but lacking in many departments) but PIT often gets overlooked for some reason. I don't know why, since it's great! The music is good, the bosses are fun, the locations are cool to explore, the babies and time travel add an extra layer to the already fun gameplay of Mario and Luigi games, the story is intense and has amazing plot twists, and the entire game is immersive! It's a little short, but that's my only complaint. People sometimes complain about enemies having too much HP, or that buying special attacks is annoying, but I found no big problem with either of these things. Play this game!

This game was my favourite, it is way better than Bowser inside story

9 Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS) Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS)

Dude... That Game Sucked!

Best game ever, seriously, this game is far better than SPM, that game sucked so bad and nobody cared for the horrible story that SPM had, this game on the other hand is a true masterpiece, it is everything what a Paper Mario game should be.
