It's the bar for platforming games. There has been stuff that looks prettier and is smoother, but you have to respect SMB3 because those other games probably never would have existed without it. For the most part its fun and breezy, a relaxing game with a moderate amount of challenge towards the end. As a person who played it constantly as a kid, booting it up is like a warm hug of nostalgia. There's not a bad word to say about it, and it still holds up decades later. It's going to be one of those games that I regularly pop in my entire life.
