Fire Emblem all the way! I just love how the gane makes you care about every character.

I dunno, I've never actually cared about a Fire Emblem character, and I'm not that hard to please, either. :/

I think he meant caring for the character's survival, not their personalities.

I cared for the characters in awakening...

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Fire Emblem destroys Final Fantasy tactics series and any other strategy/tactic/rpg genre hybrid. Except for maybe the EXCOM series. That's in the same ball park imo. But yeah Fire Emblem series gets a +1 vote from me without a shadow of a doubt.

Fire Emblem: 13
Final Fantasy Tactics: 2

The Thousand Year Door is stupendously good but I choose Mario and Luigi. The games are ridiculous and engaging with an interesting spin on classic turn based battles and overworld exploration.

I don't think I could pick between the two. Paper Mario is a more traditional RPG style experience, but it has great writing, characters, and memorable locations.
Mario & Luigi on the other hand, has one of the best battle systems in any RPG to date. Combine that with the ridiculously funny dialogue and it really makes a unique experience.

I guess Paper Mario would have the edge since it has 4 games versus M&L having 3.

Paper Mario. Paper Mario games are more creative and have better art style and plots, but Mario & luigi games battle systems are just so fluid. Paper Mario games are better overall.

Both are awesome but Paper Mario. Super Paper Mario is astoundingly creative, especially since it came out before the big 2d platformer indie boom, and Sticker Star is the freshest Mario title in years. And objectively those are probably the "lesser" games in the series, so that says so much. Never change Intelligent Systems.

I only played the Paper Mario so I can't really vote. But I do want to ask this: What's the difference between these series? They look the same tbh.

Mario and Luigi has the more fluid and quick combat and Paper Mario has the more shockingly solid storytelling. /example

Mario & Luigi definately. Superstar Saga will always be the best. I like M & L's witty humor yet intelligent writing. Most of the time in Paper Mario games, they just try TOO hard to make everything the characters say be funny.

Also is it just me or do the creators like doing "weird" stuff with characters in PM? Like the infamous Peach shower scene in TTYD, or her drinking an invisible potion then taking her clothes off... kinda sensual and gutsy for Nintendo.

Both series are fantastic, but I'm going with Paper Mario. The paper artstyle is creative, especially in Sticker Star. The stories are the most epic in any Mario game, especially the Thousand-Year Door's. The original characters are interesting and fun, from Professor Kolorado to Rawk Hawk to Doopliss to Francis. Both series are very close when it comes to music, but I like Paper Mario's a little more. The first Paper Mario is my favorite Mario RPG too.

Jeremyx7

I really enjoyed aspects of both series. Both are RPGs but with different gameplay mechanics involved. For me I would choose Mario & Luigi just because how fluid the combat system is. It's like turned based with a little bit of semi real time during combat.....kinda. Hard to explain but you all who have played it know what I mean. Paper Mario is closer to traditional RPGs. This is why Mario & Luigi get's my vote because it's extremely unique for a RPG and non traditional which is what I love about it.

Mario and Luigi. Said so in an article I wrote many years back, for the simple reason that Mario and Luigi is more like what I'd expect from a Mario RPG and not just a generic RPG style series/story with Mario characters inserted in.

http://nintendo3dsdaily.com/nintendoarticles/why-mario-luigi-...

Or to give my reasons more quickly:

1. Mario and Luigi has a similar tone to the Mario series itself. I prefer that comedic tone to the overly 'serious' and 'dark' tone of the later Paper Mario games. Seriously, you could take out the Mario characters and sell the Paper Mario game's storylines as an original novel, and no one would think it was a Mario game plot. Don't like that much.

2. I prefer the graphics style of Mario and Luigi to one in Paper Mario. The characters look more like their normal selves.

3. I prefer the battle system, since it feels like how the combat works in a 2D platformer rather than a generic RPG. And it's much more intuitive to have Mario or Luigi jump over/on an enemy to dodge an attack than to press a button with certain timing like a quick time event.

4. There's less filler in Mario and Luigi, since AlphaDream cut out pointless crap. Paper Mario on the other hand has a lot of sections which seem like they're only included to be 'ironic' or 'make fun of how video games work' and aren't fun in the slightest. Like doing chores or watching a Pianta say he loves his girlfriend fifty times.
