Other than SMBX, Super Mario 3D Land has to be my favourite. NSMB and SM64(DS) are up there aswell. (Fun fact: I never owned SM64DS myself, my friend actually gave it to me on fourth grade because he needed help with it, he had like 4 or 5 stars...and I got it up to 130 (total is 150 I think?) or some shit lol. He didn't seem to care of the game that much anyway, so I kept it for like 3-6 months, but still returned it.)

I like the soundtracks of NSMBU and SMB3D World

Mine is Super Mario RPG. This revolutionized 3D gaming, not Mario 64!

If you don't want to be suspicious, then you want to act like you're trying to help the town. Be constructive towards the game, share suspicions that aren't blatantly disprovable, cast lynch votes that aren't just a bandwagon vote with no explanation (we're all guilty of this one), ask people questions about their thoughts on things.

You don't want to post super often, but when you do post you want it to have content and not just fluff. Don't be afraid to share your thoughts, but also use your brain before you throw suspicions out there. I say this because we mislynched Taycamgame last game because he threw out a suspicion against me that literally made no sense in the context of the game. If he hadn't committed that brain fart, we would've been more likely to lynch one of the actual bad guys that day and not just a townie who didn't think before they spoke.

That is still not 3D. In the game's code, it would be 2D. The SNES isn't powerful enough to run 3D games.
This video explains what games at the time did to appear 3D (Doom wasn't 3D either)

So trying to show game footage does not really prove anything.

It doesn't apply to what he said, but Star Fox was 3D and Mega man X2 had 3D elements.

It's not 3D; even though it kinda looks 3D it's just a sort of optical illusion created by the isometric graphics. The game's characters are pre-rendered in 3D but the actual environment during gameplay is definitely two-dimensional.

My favorite is probably SMB3 (I know, so original). I grew up playing the GBA version nonstop, can't count how many times I've played it all the way through. Honorable mention goes to SMW because I grew up playing the GBA version of it as well, but something about SMB3 has always clicked to me just a tad more.

Mine is SMW.
The level design is much better than SMB3's and I love the controls and consider SMW's and SMBX's controls on par with each other. (but each of them excel differently)
This game is such a major improvement from the NES titles: you also have a lot more choice: you can toy around with the camera, have the spinjump ability, ride Yoshi, etc.

Now that's something I was going to talk about
SMW is great and all, but I found a problem, in my opinion the first worlds are okay but after... I don't know, the 5th world the game starts to focus more on difficulty than in gameplay, to the point I found SMB3 levels better done

It's my second favorite Mario game but I kinda thing that game focus more in difficulty than in gameplay and level design (with some great exceptions, but a example of what I'm saying is the last level of the Special World or all the levels from the Star World, and some levels from Chocolate Mountain and Bowser's Valley)

Now, to the topic:

My favorite Mario game is, and I've said it many times, is M&L Bowser's Inside Story, the best M&L ever

Well there certainly are some questionable levels, especially the level in Bowser's Valley with Chucks and Mega Moles... (I hate that particular one) Also yeah some special world levels are too ridiculous, such as Awesome and Outrageous. (wouldn't say that about Tubular)

Yup, it's even common to me see people who says SMW is one of the worst 2D Mario games because of that, SMW sometimes can be unfair and bland (especially when you are playing and suddenly 20 enemies come from all the directions while a Chuck is throwing you balls and 5 1-ups are falling while you avoid the munchers and a dolphin comes from the water while a sumo bro throws a thunder... kinda exaggerated, but you should know what I'm talking about... "Awesome")

My least favourite is definitely SMB3 due to its forgettable levels, focus on quantity over quality, ungodly long worlds, bland and generic artstyle (especially on nes) and music. It was a complete slog to play. Objectively speaking it's at least better than SMB1, but this is a topic about personal biases so yeah..
I have a lot harder of a time deciding on a favourite, because all good mario games are a similar level of decent. Probably the first Galaxy I suppose.

My favorite is definitely Galaxy, though that's probably the nostalgia talking. It has a great atmosphere (ba-dum-tsh) and the gravity-oriented platforming is really awesome.

Oh I'd like to mention that my least favorite Mario is definitely The Lost Levels.
Reasons:
- clunky controls
- unfair level design - it gave inspiration for stuff like Cat Mario and IWBTG
- nothing new to offer compared to SMB1
