Hey guys, Tyler here! Mario has been in some of the greatest platforming games of all time. Some have been puzzle oriented, some insanely difficult and some even star other characters!

But before we get into the question from this week, let’s take a look at the opinions from last QotW.Last time we asked if you enjoyed Smash Run in Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS. User Mario_Comix showed his violent side as he said he enjoyed the mode since it is fun to kill enemies. Conversely, member Nookling answered with a simple no. With that out of the way let us get to this weeks question…

What is the best 2D Mario Platformer?


I think that Super Mario World for the SNES is definitively the best 2D Mario Platformer despite introducing Yoshi as a character. Everything from the soundtrack to the level design is top-notch. I would argue that it is not only the best 2D Mario Platformer but the best 2D Platformer ever made. However, there are arguments to be made for other games so tell us in the comments which 2D Mario Platformer is the best!
