Winner: Super Mario 64Total Entry Votes: 351

Super Mario 64 not only saw Nintendo’s frontman Mario dive in to a 3D landscape for the first time, but it also established the Nintendo 64 as a powerhouse console from day one. Players control Mario as he collects the 120 Gold Stars strewn about Princess Peach’s enormous castle. Like previous games in the franchise, it featured a slew of power-ups, unique baddies, and several iconic Bowser battles spanning various environments. The game introduced several new maneuvers for Mario as well, such as the ability to backflip, triple jump, and the ever-so-useful wall jump.

Aside from the revolutionary level design and enthralling gameplay, Super Mario 64 also changed the gaming landscape with the introduction of the 3D, free roaming mode. Not only did this style go on to define the Mario franchise, but it set the bar for future 3D platformers. Plain and simple, Super Mario 64 is puzzle platforming at its finest and remains one of gaming’s greatest titles of all time
