Mario games are beyond ubiquitous at this point, but none are quite as iconic as the third entry in the series. After the somewhat...rocky performance of the second game, Super Mario Bros. 3 impressed not only with its sheer size, but also with its new map system (still in use by most Mario games today), a wide range of new powerups (also many of which still see use), an addicting soundtrack (that's not news, though), and clever level design. If for some reason you haven't played this one yet, do so immediately: there's a reason many places list it as the best NES game ever made.
