I started playing the early (NES) mario games but only had the more recent Sonic Adventure games, so Mario?

*Cough* Sonic was beaten by Mario when Sega died *Choke*

June 25th, 2010, 10:32 AM
Well Mario is what I remember from when I was little, so that's my choice. Sonic did bring us the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon though.

I'll have to give DiC a prrrromotion!

I think Mario is best. I think Sonic is bad because his games are mostly bad, and even though he has more of a personality than Mario his personality is really stupid. He is supposed to be cool but really he is more like a geek trying to act cool.

June 25th, 2010, 1:16 PM
Mario. That blue hedgehog is so damn irritating -.-

June 25th, 2010, 1:19 PM
2D Sonic, 3D Mario. No exceptions.

That's a tough call... I prefer Shadow and Yoshi from Sonic and Mario, and I like Yoshi more, so I'd have to say Mario as a whole.

June 25th, 2010, 1:20 PM
Mario is better nowadays but back in the days Sonic used to be better.

Mario!!! Nothing beats a fat Italian plumber! xD

June 25th, 2010, 1:22 PM
I can't decide. I think Sonic used to be better, but Mario was translated into 3D much better.

June 25th, 2010, 1:30 PM
I think that Sonic games have always been bad. I have played them on the Virtual Console so I know. In the old Mario games especially Super Mario World every level had a really unique challenge but in Sonic every level was basically just the same kind of thing but in a different setting apart from the underwater levels which are a bit different.

No sonic love ;^;. While I admit Mario is still has all the fame and glory that still shines from his 2D days, while Sonic has fell off from fame with his tradition to 3D I still like the Sonic series more. Actually, I like both series but its just that I like the fast and speedy gameplay :>, whereas Mario games are a pain seriously albeit fun but a pain.. Sonic isn't my favorite character in his universe, Shadow and Knuckles ftw, and Mario isn't my favorite in his universe, Luigi :DM they both are old video game icons and maintains a fanbase.

You all are a bunch of hedgehog haters ;~;

Have never been much for Sonic. Even when I owned a SEGA Genesis, I did not own any Sonic games. May have come with one, but gave to a friend who 'had' a friend that stole their copy (supposedly).

Mario Galaxy games have cemented my opinion of the little plumber that could. And Mario Tennis is my fave sport spinoff.

I hate Luigi.

Where is the Dr. Mario RPG?

June 25th, 2010, 1:56 PM
I like Mario but I'll always be a die-hard Sonic fan. I grew up on Sonic.

June 25th, 2010, 2:44 PM
I will always have love for Sonic. =3

June 25th, 2010, 2:54 PM
The Italian plumber, forever.

I'm more "into" the Sonic series, but then I think Mario is better. :x

June 25th, 2010, 7:24 PM
2D Sonic forever. Mario was fine, but I never liked his character design.

I'm a fan of both Mario & Sonic.
but I like Mario better.
I am not a hater of Sonic,he is very cool.
but I am just a bigger fan of Mario then I am Sonic.
so I chose Mario.

June 26th, 2010, 11:06 AM
They're both terrible mascots for terrible games. I choose Mario, only because Super Mario World was one of the best games ever.

I find it amusing that the Sonic colour bar on the poll is red, and the Mario one is blue.

OT: Sonic. Mario just does the same thing over and over for the same bone-headed Princess who, as Yahtzee says, doesn't have the common sense to not live within walking distance of her serial kidnapper. Hoi doi. At least Sonic games try to attempt something new with their storyline with varying degrees of success, instead of the same ol' schtick.

Now, if this had been a poll between Luigi and Tails...no, scratch that, Tails would have won. Miles Prower is so effin' adorable. I've loved him since I played Sonic 2. :> And I like Waluigi better than Luigi, sooo. Sorry Luigi? XD

I think sonic games are more fun as far as action goes but the games lately have not been good. plus. I think sonic is already practcally dead at this point, how long has it been since the last sonic game was released? at least a year? the latest mario game was released last month. So after that long spill, based on gameplay, mario. But as far as character design goes, it would be sonic, cuz shadow is awesome.

June 27th, 2010, 7:25 AM
Sonic FTW. I have to admit though they are getting worse so maybe the new ones will be back to the classic sort of style. Mario I like but I get frustrated too easily with mario.

June 29th, 2010, 2:52 PM
Always have been and always will be a Sonic fan over Mario. I can't wait for Sonic 4 to come out, as it seems like they're going back to what made the franchise successful in the first place.

June 29th, 2010, 3:16 PM
Mario. He is epic and he is beastly. 'nuff said.

June 30th, 2010, 2:35 AM
Mario is the best.

I think sonic is just annoying. Maybe because i watched him say on youtube, 'You're too slow!' for 10 mins.....

Still, Mario's the best.

June 30th, 2010, 4:34 AM
As my thought goes, I think Mario is better.
Sonic never made Super Sonic Bros., despite never having a brother, nor did he make Sonic Party, or Sonic Kart, or Sonic Tennis, nor did he ever save a princess.

A badass Italian-American plumber or a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog? The answer is obviously Mario.

Only furries like Sonic anyway.

July 2nd, 2010, 3:02 PM
Mario will always reign in my book.
Mario it is. 8)

July 3rd, 2010, 5:20 AM
i say sonic because i grew up playing sonic games

July 3rd, 2010, 8:27 AM
I'm torn between the two. I actually like Knuckles the Sonic character alot more than Sonic and I like Yoshi alot more than Mario so I'm gonna have to say I don't really like Sonic or Mario but like side characters.

Sonic! I used to play it at my grandmother's house. I was unaware what version it was because of my youth; but it was hella fun!

I never really knew how to play it, but it was still fun. As I grew older, I could actually read (yes, read!) and follow the instructions, getting me further through the game.

I never finished it, because one day I went to set it up and it simply vanished. But, I know it was on the N64, because they had a Toy Story game on there, right?

July 5th, 2010, 9:43 PM
Sonic. Mario's games are very overrated.

July 7th, 2010, 12:00 AM
I would have to say Mario. It's mostly because I grew up with him, but also because his games are great even today.

July 7th, 2010, 12:07 AM
Sonic all the way. Sonic runs at the speed of sound while mario just jumps and throws fireballs...

Speed > fire

July 7th, 2010, 12:11 AM
I'm going with Mario on this one.
