My favorite multi-player Mario is Super Mario Bros 3, really for 'POW'. Ever since SMB3, I think multiplayer has gone down hill in the franchise. That is until "New Super Mario Bros" which my wife and I enjoyed. All players being on the same screen actually reminded me a bit of Contra. Now that James has a Wii U a couple of you should play that together and report back!

Sorry for the double post.

My favorite single player SMB experience was Mario 64. I thought it was awesome to be able to see the world and characters up close. Oh and dropping a baby penguin off a cliff never got old. I was never frustrated by the 3d camera but I think that is because I, like most kids at that time, was playing my first 3d console game. I probably assumed that the camera was how 3d games worked rather then Mario 64 specifically. I remember my friends and I catching each other moving our heads to get a different viewing angle on the 3d objects portrayed on our 2d television screen.
