Paper Mario by far, Mario RPG has not aged well IMO, leveling up is a chore.

I'd go with paper mario, the entire game is gorgeous to look at, smooth to play with, engages you a lot, offers tons of side quests, offers a lot more variety and is overall just extremely awesome.
I do like mario RPG, but i suggest getting paper first, RPG later on

I think you should buy paper mario first and then a Super Mario RPG. They are both good games but Paper Mario is better.

I hear its amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on hari-kiri rock!!! I NEED SCISSORS!!! 61!!!

Paper Mario is the better game IMO.

i kinda prefer mario RPG. it defintely could have been a lot better than it is, but it seems more epic in terms of its story (probably square's influence), and it's a longer game.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Paper Mario, no question.

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.

That's a difficult choice. I have both, and both are great. SMRPG takes a bit of getting used to, and Paper Mario can be pretty annoying at times.

I'd say: If you have a Mario & Luigi game, go with Paper Mario. If you have a Paper Mario game, go with SMRPG. If you have both or neither, go with Paper Mario. If you love Chrono Trigger or the other SNES RPGs by Square, go with SMRPG.

I wouldn't say that one is better than the other as they are both a lot of fun to play. But I think most gamers today would prefer Paper Mario over Mario RPG because it uses 3D graphics and looks more modern whereas the Mario RPG "only" has 2D bitmap graphics.

I would go with general consensus here, both great games but Paper Mario wins by a whisker. You can't really go wrong with either though.

Paper Mario 64 by a country mile. I was incredibly dissapointed with Super Mario RPG--after playing the much-improved Mario & Luigi series Mario RPG feels a bit boring and lame in comparison. Paper Mario, by contrast, is one of the best RPG's you'll ever play.

Paper Mario. Then get Mario RPG. Both games are excellent, Paper Mario is a little bit better.

I'm going to take the high ground and NOT make a "that's what she said joke". I could, but I'm not going to do it

Super Mario RPG. Then you could get Paper Mario.
Or vice versa.

Paper Mario first. It's not really a traditional RPG, which is what makes it great! The graphics are superb, the best on the N64.
Edit: Not to say traditional RPGs are bad, but PM is better.
