Legendary games designer Shigeru Miyamoto was recently questioned by USA Today who asked him which Mario game is his all-time favourite? His answer, Super Mario World.
“Super Mario World is something that included of course all the action you saw in Super Mario Bros. said Miyamoto. (but) it also had the map features, so it also had that element of players having to think about where they were going and what they were going to do next.
“I also think that it is a game that developed a large number of staff people who became producers and directors.”
