Who's better - Sonic or Mario?

September 11, 2009 1:15pm CST
I was a huge Sega fan from the Genesis days so originally I was a big time Sonic fan. These days I prefer Mario, mainly because Mario games tend to always be enjoyable whereas Sonic games are getting progressively worse. I mean now you can even have them go head to head in that Mario and Sonic olympic games or in Brawl for Wii.. but while I like both, Mario seems to be able to withstand the test of time far better than Sonic.

I would definitely say that Mario is doing well these days! Especially because the Wii is SO incredibly popular these days. Sega maybe should come out with something like that (There's Xbox360, Nintendo Wii, PS3, but nothing that Sega has done has become quite as popular!). Maybe if they came out with a new type of console, Sonic would come back into the scene. I like Mario much better..But that's because I grew up with Nintendo. I definitely agree with you though, Mario is more popular than ever! I finally got a Nintendo Wii and we just bought a few Mario games - and they're way fun and different, but at the same time, classic!

Super Mario Bros is the only Super Mario game I completed. So Sonic I completed Sonic Rush. I can't decide but both are good no complains

big fan of Mario,from the movies to the early Mario Kart games, loved those games. To the later olympic games and varius ones the have on the Wii. Even still play Super Mario Brothers its so addictive

With Brawl on Wii, we get a chance to actually make Sonic and Mario fight. I wonder who'd win?

i think both are different, i love both, but i would go for sonic simply because i think sonic is much better in graphics and game play, they are upgrading the game again and again but mario people are not doing anything.

Sega has yet to release a cool Sonic game that really wows me though since the Genesis era.

Mario has been and will always be my first love. It's one of the first games I started playing whenever I got into gaming as a kid and I loved Mario. Don't get me wrong, I played Sonic too and I definitely did enjoy Sonic but my preference is more for Mario than Sonic. When I got back into gaming about 6 months ago, one of the first games I had to buy was the New Super Marios game. I finished that thing in a few weeks (hey I was a busy college student) and I never really had any desire to buy a Sonic game. My mom bought me a Sonic game about a month ago and I've only touched it once. It's not really my thing. I feel like the new Sonic stuff is sorely lacking all the good stuff it originally had.

After Sonic left the Genesis games it seemed like overall the quality of the games fell.

Mario definitely has continued to have good games over the years. Actually, though, one of my favorites is Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and I am excited about the winter version coming out soon. Other than that I do not really like any Sonic games for current systems. I do like some of the Mario games, though, especially Mario Kart.

The game wasn't bad but it was physically tiring. =\ I'd sweat like a pig just to win a race.

This is a really good discussion and I am sure that a lot of people have opinions when it comes to Sonic and Mario and who is better,and both characters are really awesome in their own ways,and I kind of liked Sonic back in the old Sega Genesis days and I still have one of the Sonic games,and then I liked Mario on the Nintendo 64 especially in Super Mario 64 which was totally awesome,and they are both still awesome,I am not much into Sonic anymore and find those games more tedious and boring,but I am still into Mario and find that his games are always fun and enjoyable,and I definitely want to get Mario and Sonic Olympic Games for the Wii because I think it would be fun putting them head to head against each other to see which one is the best,and which one is the worst,have a great day,good luck with your life,and all of your mylotting goals,and Happy Posting.
