Top Ten Video Games that Were Inspired by Super Mario Bros.

Please not that this list was recreated due to the other list being non-votable.

Even if Sonic has a lot of games inspired by itself, Mario is still popular and also has games inspired by itself. So, enjoy reading this list.

The Top Ten

1 Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)

The obvious reason it existed in the first place is to be an edgy rival to Mario.

Shouldn't this be 1? - Not_A_Weeaboo

And this isn't number one why? - mattstat716

2 Banjo-Kazooie

The reason it exists in the first place is pretty much because of Mario. If you love Banjo-Kazooie, thank Mario.

I love this game!

3 Crash Bandicoot

It did have a lot of inspiration from BOTH Mario and Sonic, from? Blocks and similar gameplay to cool-looking animal protagonists.

4 Croc: Legend of the Gobbos

Originally supposed to be a Yoshi platform/racing game, but it then evolved into this really adorable game.

5 Super Meat Boy

The initials and gameplay were inspired by the successful series of Mario.

6 Bubsy

Despite being a failed franchise, it did take inspiration from not only Sonic, but Mario.

7 Pikmin

Based on the cancelled Super Mario 128 prototype.

8 Braid
9 A Hat in Time
10 Rayman Legends

The Contenders

11 The Great Giana Sisters

This is what you call an early knockoff.

Ah, good ol' bootlegs. - mattstat716

12 Fez Fez
13 Undertale Undertale

Believe it or not, not only was it inspired by the Mother series, but it was also inspired by a few Mario RPGs as well.

I think it's talking about the PLATFORMER mario bros. Not the RPGS or whatever. - mattstat716

I'm talking about the entire franchise (This includes Donkey Kong, Yoshi, Luigi and Wario games as well.) in general (Well, I could easily have referred it to "Super Mario", but it's too late now.); my other list was accidentally made private, hence why I made another list.
