3. Super Mario Sunshine
Arguably one of the lesser popular Mario games of the 3D era, 1998's Super Mario Sunshine was a treat to look at even on the Gamecube. Lofting above the palm trees and bright beaches of Isle Delfino on a spray of water from the trusty FLUDD was a change of pace for our mustachioed hero but nonetheless, he fit in like a champ. If anything, it almost seemed a vacation for the moonlightin' plumber slash day saver extraordinaire. This installation in the series almost deserves a high definition re-release, or maybe even, dare we suggest it, a sequel?
