Best Nintendo Games List – #16 Super Mario Maker

Developer: Nintendo EAD Group No. 4

Finally, after years of people criticizing the quasi-annualized outputs of contemporary “New” Super Mario games, Nintendo finally said, “Fine. You go make one!” And so thousands upon thousands did with Super Mario Maker, a level editing software that allows anyone to make their own version of classic and new Super Mario games. Using the GamePad, you have a toolbox of items, enemies and objects from the series at your disposal, allowing you to create levels to your design.

Better yet, because you can do several types of level styles (haunted house, underground, water) and combine them with enemies, objects and other things that typically aren’t “canon” levels, you can do some really fascinating designs. Once completed, you can bring creations online to share, and for players to explore levels themselves. Fixed shooters, action platformers, choose your own adventures, and even narrative tales can be shared in Super Mario Maker, making it the ultimate means of expressing yourself within a Mario game.
