Hardcore Nintendo fans hear my call, what is the best Mario game of all?

 Lets face it, there are just way too many Mario Bros games out there to mention in one breath. The evolution of Mario and his companions has been an interesting one - From humble beginings on the NES, to being a space diving daredevil on the Wii U. Nintendo has almost made Mario the Mickey Mouse of it's franchise. Theres a unbreakable innocence to these games that never changes no matter what platform it's on. 

We wanted to know what people thought of the long running series in it's entirety, more specifically, which ones had most impact on them as the player. We tracked down gamers at local Gamestop locations and asked the Nintendo fans "What's your favorite Mario Bro's game?" What we noticed is it wasn't a question that called for a quick answer.
