I think the obvious answer is by the time the GBA rolled around, the power to put an SNES game in your hand was mind-boggling. This was the FIRST time you could get an authentic Super Mario World experience on handheld. The idea to make a new 2D Mario game period didn't happen until NSMB for the DS. At the time, 3D was still new, so the industry was transitioning. It would still be a while before the tastes shifted back.

Interesting opinion mariomguy. Have you played Mario vs Donkey Kong on GBA though? That was a 2D Mario platform game.
Also why have I only had 1 reply to this post so far? Are people getting bored of Mario?
What do you all prefer? Legend of Zelda Link to the Past on Snes or GBA?
Also what do you think of the best selling games on GBA?
