I don't really expect any kind of objective reasoning behind this, but if anyone can offer some that would be an unexpected plus. I hold that Mario 3 is the easiest, followed probably by Super Mario World (SNES) and, probably all following releases with Mario 2 being the 2nd to hardest and Mario 1 being the hardest.

My main point is that Mario 1 is the most unforgiving:

1) the last level of Mario 1 is hard to beat without the fireball and it's hard to get to Kuppa without losing the fireball.
2) Mario 1 offers the least amount of lives throughout the game. A reasonable amount of lives if you play the game straight through might be 20 men, vs. Mario 3 where you can easily accumulate 99 lives.
