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


The Top Ten

1 Mario Galaxy has better graphics

Amazing graphics for it's time, can hardly see pixels - MarioBros11

Both Games Are Good, But This List Is Unfair Comparing - VideoGamefan5

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. - TheYoshiPyro64

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

3 Mario Galaxy has more plot

Yeah - MarioBros11

Yeah, Mario didn't just have to save Princess Peach, he also had to save the universe. - TheYoshiPyro64


4 Luma is in Mario Galaxy. Not Super Mario Bros

What'd I tell ya? - MarioBros11

See my Rosalina comment. - TheYoshiPyro64


So? - VideoGamefan5

5 Mario Galaxy is more fun

Oh hell yes - MarioBros11

Both Are Fun, This List Has Poor Reasoning - VideoGamefan5

And has unique controls. - TheYoshiPyro64

6 Mario Galaxy is more challenging

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. - TheYoshiPyro64

7 Mario Galaxy has humor

What? - MarioBros11

It Doesn't Really Have Humor - VideoGamefan5

8 Stronger/greater power-ups

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... - TheYoshiPyro64

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

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

It's a perfect game you should try out. Don't listen to Chaotixhero, he's just jealous. - TheYoshiPyro64

Super Mario bros was made in 1985 you dummie

The Contenders

11 More detail

Yes, a lot more - MarioBros11

12 Much stronger gameplay

Amazing game, amazing story, my favorite game, oh by the way I commented on all of these reasons - MarioBros11
