Hello RetroJunk fans! Today I am going to talk to you about my top 5 most favorite Mario games. Some of you may know me as a Mario fanatic because Mario is one of my most favorite Nintendo characters ever. Before I start, I will let you know that this is my first article and this information was all done by my own knowledge so let me know how I did with the article. Now it is time to start my top 5 most favorite Mario games and they are

5. Mario Party 3



This was the third and last Mario Party game to be released on the Nintendo 64. The purpose of this game is to pick four of your favorite characters and then you get to choose a board game to play on. When all of the characters had made their turn, a mini game is randomly selected to see who will win. Whoever won will get ten extra coins. If you make twenty or more coins, you will get a star. Whoever has collected the most stars wins the game.

4. Super Mario World



Unfortunately, this would be another game where Princess Peach is kidnapped…again! If you are player one, you get to play as Mario. If you are player two, you get to play as Luigi. The purpose of this game is to clear all of the worlds and beat Bowser and his seven koopa kids: Morton, Wendy, Lemmy, Larry, Iggy, Roy, and Ludwig. This is also the game where Yoshi makes his first appearance.

3. Super Mario Bros. 3



The seven koopa kids have stolen the rods from the kings and turned them into animals! And later in the game Princess Peach is kidnapped by Bowser once again. The purpose of this game is to clear all of the worlds and get the rods back from the koopa kids and turn the kings back to normal. The best thing about this game is that it features cool looking costumes such as the frog suit, tanooki suit, and the hammer suit.

2. Super Mario Bros.



This is the game that started the search to rescue Princess Peach from the evil koopa king known as Bowser. The purpose of this game is to clear four levels in each of the eight worlds in order to defeat Bowser and save Princess Peach. This is the game where Mario got this fireball power and also the debut of Princess Peach, Bowser, and Toad. Did you know that Toad was known as a Mushroom Retainer in Super Mario Bros.? You will see that in the original Super Mario Bros. Instruction booklet.

And finally, my number one favorite Mario game is

1. Super Mario 64



In my opinion, I think that Super Mario 64 is one of the best Mario games ever because it was the first game where Mario got to experience a 3D world. The purpose of this game is to clear six levels, including the 100-coin star, in fifteen worlds and the fifteen secret stars in order to defeat Bowser and save Princess Peach once again! You will need at least 70 stars to beat Bowser and the highest amount of stars in the game is 120 stars. You have to admit that it is pretty funny when Mario catches himself on fire! LOL!

This concludes my top 5 favorite Mario games. I will hope to write another article soon! Bye!
