37. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (SNES)

Wow, this is an oddball game. Yoshi’s Island almost completely forgoes the traditional gameplay set by previous Mario games. Instead of hopping and bopping on goombas’ heads as Mario, you’re protecting baby Mario as Yoshi all the while throwing eggs everywhere in a heavily stylized world that looks like a crayon drawing. While I don’t think this is quite as good as the other Mario games, this is a welcome departure from a well-trodden formula. It’s fun eating enemies and pooping them out as eggs (yes, that happens) and you’ll enjoy the inspired levels that will have you guessing what’s next. As a tip, if you want to see Yoshi waddle around and have blurred vision like he’s drunk, make sure to touch all the Fuzzies in the level “Touch Fuzzy get Dizzy.”
