They both seem like the top talk with this generation, so I was wondering which everyone prefers. I for one prefer Mario. On top of that I prefer many more game, becuase I've started to like adventure games, although some Mario games are adventure, *ramble ramble*. xD

I'm more of a Mario person, but I love LoZ as well.

I like the Mario games more than the 'The Legend of Zelda' ones.

Oh how beauteous
Your lips and eyes and your fingertips
The spark of desire
On every point our bodies meet

Behind your eyes were stars
Infinite and serene
How I could suffer for you
You fascinate and magnetise me

It's kinda hard to compare to the two, sweetie. I really enjoy both franchises since I grew up with both of them, and they're both are my top favorites.

As for game play wise, Mario games I kinda pick up and play whenever and fun. As for Zelda, a good sit down and play through is what I need to fully enjoy the game.

I think it just depends on my mood, sweeties. XD

while I grew up with both, I have always preferred The Legend of Zelda games over Mario games mainly for their storyline, game play and boss battles

I grew up with Mario and never really liked zelda until I was ten, and even then it wasn't good enough IMO.
Apparently I can't beat Zelda without a guide so I find the series itself to be somewhat tedious.
Mario I find to be much easier, meaning that I have no problem going through most of the games.

Both are great series, but I prefer Mario for said reasons.

Zelda games for sure. Zelda has appealed to me since I lost an interest in Mario.

Zelda all the way. :3

Well I grew up with Mario in fact the first game I ever bought/played was Super Mario Bros. 3 for the NES, their fun to play since all Mario games can entertain anyone of any age...but theirs something about the Zelda games that makes me prefer them than Mario games. I would like to say both but too bad theres no "both" in the voting poll so I'll go with Mario because up to now I still play his latest games.

Zelda for sure, heh. It's just more versatility with what Link (and Zelda, whenever she's playable) can do in the game. Not to say, of course, that Mario games don't also rock.

Zelda is amazing. I just started playing OoT again and I remembered what those games are all about. Mario is amazing too, of course, but Zelda beats it by far in my opinion.
