Top Ten Reasons Why Super Mario Galaxy Is Better Than Super Mario Bros

The Top Ten

1 Mario Galaxy has better graphics

Both Games Are Good, But This List Is Unfair Comparing

I actually love the graphics the same. Super Mario Bros. was very artistic with its blocky graphical style. Super Mario Galaxy has a lot of effort put into its universe design.

They're both good games.

Amazing graphics for it's time, can hardly see pixels

2 Rosalina is in Super Mario Galaxy but not Super Mario Bros

So? - darthvadern

Rosalina has Luma - MarioBros11

Silver Got Introduced In Sonic 06 But That Does That Mean Sonic 06 is Good? - VideoGamefan5

You treat Rosalina the same way Danteem is with Luigi.

3 Mario Galaxy has more plot

No one cares about a plot in a mario game - darthvadern

Yeah - MarioBros11

Yeah, Mario didn't just have to save Princess Peach, he also had to save the universe.


4 Luma is in Mario Galaxy but not Super Mario Bros

So? - darthvadern

What'd I tell ya? - MarioBros11

See my Rosalina comment.


5 Mario Galaxy is more fun

You know Mario Galaxy is better. Doesn't excuse the fact that this list has crappy reasoning although I do agree with this item - darthvadern

Oh hell yes - MarioBros11

Both Are Fun, This List Has Poor Reasoning - VideoGamefan5

And has unique controls.

6 Mario Galaxy is more challenging

Guess so - darthvadern

Oh yeah - MarioBros11

It's pretty hard too. I once played it a couple of times at one of my friends' house; sadly, I didn't get that far on that game.

7 Mario Galaxy has humor

None have - darthvadern

What? - MarioBros11

It Doesn't Really Have Humor - VideoGamefan5

8 Stronger/greater power-ups

Guess that - darthvadern

Red Star makes you fly, boyy - MarioBros11

The Fire Flower was a classic. It had one new thing: lighting up torches.

The Ice Flower was one of my favourite power-ups of all time. You turn into an ice statue, walk on water and lava and freeze enemies on contact.

The Bee Mushroom is unique. You can fly, climb honeycombs and land on flowers and mushrooms.

The Boo Mushroom is good. You can go through walls, but there is one flaw though. You become vulnerable to light. :(

The Spring Mushroom... what? It wraps a metallic coil around you and... well, even though I never used it, multiple people say that it's one of the worst Mario power-ups of existence and criticzed it for being hard to control.

The Red Star was a great source of flight. I don't know what other reason to give it...

Well, Super Mario Bros. is still a great game. It's a bit superior to Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Bros. introduced these power-ups we have come to know and love from the mushrooms to the power stars, but Super Mario Galaxy has power-ups that make the Mario Bros. even more capable of doing high black-belt skill stuff. And how dare you tell someone that he/she is just jealous, TheYoshiPyro64. - The Ultimate Daredevil

9 Different level designs

The best reason - darthvadern

Super Mario Galaxy has more different level design than Super Mario Bros., but the level design of Super Mario Bros. is more similar than the same. - The Ultimate Daredevil

10 It's not a short game

So? Space Quest I-III are short but they are nothing short of amazing - darthvadern

It's a perfect game you should try out. Don't listen to Chaotixhero, he's just jealous.

Super Mario bros was made in 1985 you dummie

The Contenders

11 More detail
