6. Super Mario Sunshine (2002)
Developer: Nintendo EAD
Mario packed up and headed to Isle Delfino for the second 3D Mario platformer, hopping through the tropical paradise with his FLUDD (Flash Liquidizing Ultra Dousing Device) and a sun beating down on his back—Peach in tow, of course. Using the FLUDD (found on the island) Mario must find the sun-shaped Shine Sprites that give the island its power and restore the sun to Isle Delfino. All this, while keeping Peach safe and the island from being vandalized. It's a strange little detour from classic Mario games, but a great adventure nevertheless.
