Super Mario 3D World

For years, Super Mario 3D World felt like a secret. Wii U owners would breathlessly tell you that you had to play it, but the system’s low sales meant that most people wouldn’t. Mixing 3D Mario controls with the linear, flagpole-oriented level design of a 2D Super Mario game is a stroke of genius, allowing for tons of new challenges and puzzles, and even makes the well-worn series staples feel fresh again. Every level has at least one idea that could be a full game. Now that it’s on Switch, Super Mario 3D World is required reading for platforming fans.
