    I tend to favour Mario platformers with a deeper story/lore, bigger sense of adventure/discovery and a sparsely mix-up of gameplay (mini games, challenges, race like levels, etc.) but the overall game package needs cohesion (stages put into worlds with purpose, direction and intent).

    Top 5 only please, from favourite to least favourite.

    1. Super Mario Galaxy
    2. Super Mario Bros. 3
    3 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
    4. Super Mario World
    5. New Super Mario Bros. Wii

    1. Yoshi's island.
    2. Super paper mario.
    3. Super Mario world.
    4. Mario maker 2.
    5. Super Mario 3D world.

    I didn't finished 3d Mario games like galaxy or odyssey so I can't put them in the list. But I prefer 2d games anyway.

    1. Super Mario Sunshine
    2. Super Mario World
    3. Yoshi's Island
    4. Mario 64 DS**
    5. Super Mario Bros 3

    **I like the original 64 version as well, but enjoyed the new gameplay and content.

    My top 3 change order sometimes, they are all really great in their own ways. What you said in OP, you basically described Sunshine.

    I have always found the difficulty in Mario games well suited for experienced players as well as newcomers I believe this is why I've enjoyed most of them. I wish this was true for Kirby and Yoshi games to take an example. It's true that they've made Mario games easier but not as easy as the Yoshi or Kirby games which I find very difficult to play cause I get bored with the super easy difficulty.
