There have been countless games I n the Super Mario series that are considered to be legendary including the trilogy that appeared on the NES in the mid to late 80’s. However, as far as one of the best Mario games of all-time is concerned there is no question that Super Mario World would have to be in the top five of many people’s list. Since its release for the Super NES back in 1990 Super Mario World has managed to sell over 20 million units worldwide and is considered to be the best 2D platformer of the 16 bit era by many people.
Despite, Super Mario 64 having more superior graphics following its ’96 release the game was not as successful as Super Mario World and lacked a multiplayer mode and other features that made the 2D Mario titles exciting. Not to take anything away from Super Mario 64 but the game only sold 11 million copies worldwide which is still incredible but it was not quite as popular as Super Mario World which is still played by many people to this day.
