New Super Mario Bros U.
And Luigi U.

I hate the art style so damn much.

I made a run on the 3DS game but portability helped.

Did I hear Yoshi's Cookie lol?...I wouldn't call that a Mario game.

My vote goes to New Super Mario Bros. on the Wii, although it was still tons of fun.

New Super Mario Bros. Played coop with some friends and it was one of the most frustrating and swear inducing coop game we have ever played. Such a poorly thought out mode. IMO of course.

Sunshine. The shines just become so formulaic and repetitive after a few worlds.

Never played the New series, but the pah-pah generation of Nintendo music can take a long walk off a short pier.

3D World *Spits*.

The whole ‘New’ series is trash also.

Mario 3D World is under rated!

truth be told, it's an easy game but it has some nice level design.

I finished Odyssey a couple weeks back and restarted 3d world. I actually think 3d world is better for level design. Odyssey is a nice open world but by god does it get repetitive.

Cat Mario potentially is one of the better power ups lately.

I also loved the fact that world, upon world just kept opening up. Something i was looking forward to with Odyssey but nope, apart from the the retro kingdom the other kingdoms are a let down.

In any case, worst mario? Not sure, if we talking official i wasn't the biggest fan of NSMB 1 or 2. I wasn't a fan of 3D Land either, too short for my liking.

It's a tossup between Sunshine, NSMB, and 3D Land.

The Galaxy series. I just hated them. Maybe it was the planetoid focused level design or the semi waggle/pointy controls, but I just couldn't stand them.

I even like Super Mario Land for the OG Gameboy better than them.

Every one after the DS one, which was really fun and actually new at the time.

American Super Mario Bros. 2. By far.

Bros 2. Since it was a different game to begin with, it felt "alien". It wasn't bad per se, it was just... off. Never could get into it.

I find the NSMB series incredibly bland, though I still enjoyed NSMBU enough to finish it. They play well enough; the issue is that there's next to no creativity.

For me, there's a runaway winner here.

Super Paper Mario.

The fact that it's the successor to two of the greatest RPG's ever is appalling. It's a mediocre game, and an absymal Mario/Nintendo game.

There aren't many Mario games I've actively thought "this isn't remotely fun" for long while playing them but Sticker Star did a pretty great job of that. The people who badmouth that game really aren't doing a lot of exaggerating.

In defense of the NSMB games, try to look at them in context - NSMB was the long-awaited revival of 2D Mario, NSMB Wii introduced 4-player simultaneous co-op for the first time... it wasn't until 2 and U that there really wasn't any kind of hook at all (boring excessive coin gimmick notwithstanding), and I think it really didn't help that they both came out the same year. Even then, that was five years ago at this point. The optimist in me really thinks whenever they go back to NSMB they'll have enough fresh ideas to change some minds.

Do Mario sports games count?

New Super Mario Bros 2 on 3DS. It was so fucking boring, there was just nothing that gives you that sort of "giddy" feeling Mario games tend to give you when they really hit their stride. It was just a borefest.

I did really like Sunshine though, too bad so many people aren't very fond of it.

Only played a handful but the original galaxy was probably my least favourite. Great game but doesn’t hold up to 3, world, 64 and odyessy. Played a bit of sunshine but not enough to have a valid opinion.

NSMB series. They are so fucking bland from their uninspired graphics to their really obnoxious music. It's such a "safe" Mario that it makes itself worse than a bad one. It feels like one of those rip-off Mario platformers from the 16-bit era and Mario should never feel like that. And they try to pawn them off as some sort of sequels to the Mario Bros. series.

Jesus... what a tough one....

Even though I loved it still I have to say maybe Mario Bros. The one with Mario and Luigi and the pipes.. it's pretty damn good but the other games are better..

Haven't played the really bad ones, like the CDi game..so I can't speak on that..
