The world’s favorite plumber is also a huge sports fan. When he’s not busy stomping goombas, you can find Mario hitting the links, swinging his tennis racket, or playing some street soccer with his pals.

Mario sports games have a long history, dating all the way back to the original NES. Some have been home runs. Others were a swing and a miss. Mario sports games have a long history, dating all the way back to the original NES. Some have been home runs. Others were a swing and a miss.

Mario Tennis for the Virtual Boy ranks lowest on our list for a few reasons. First, the game was released as a pack-in for a system notorious for causing headaches and illness in children. Second, the game has no multiplayer mode, a crime for a Mario sports game. And finally, the game is just boring.

MARIO TENNIS (VIRTUAL BOY) IS THE WORST MARIO SPORTS GAME

Remember when I said Nintendo made some tennis games on much better systems? This isn’t it. The Wii U had some great games for it, and a tennis game seems like it would be right at home on the Wii U’s gamepad.

The Wii was undeniably a smash hit console. And a baseball game felt right at home on the console. Super Sluggers isn’t a bad Mario sports game, but it does suffer from difficult controls and no online play. It was also hard to justify its existence since everyone already had the best baseball game on Wii.

MARIO SUPER SLUGGERS (WII)

Mario Sports Superstars for the 3DS took a little bit of Mario sports and a little bit of Mario party and mixed them together. Mario Sports Superstars contains five full games; golf, tennis, soccer, football, and horse racing. They’re not mini-games either, they are full games, just not up to par with their full fledge soccer and tennis counterparts.

MARIO TENNIS OPEN (3DS)

Mario Sports Mix is such an interesting sports title in the Mario sports library. Mario Sports Mix feels like a sequel to Wii sports with the Mario family instead of Mii’s. It features four sports; basketball, hockey, volleyball, and dodgeball. Each sport is relatively easy to pick up and play, but unfortunately, there is little to master.
