Super Mario Bros 3

Mario, but with an overworld map! A Tanooki power-up (the racoon suit)! An inventory system! Varied destinations! The list of what Nintendo crammed into an 8-bit cartridge goes on and on.

And this wasn’t some weird tangent like Super Mario Bros 2 was, this was like a legit sequel to the original with intense delight crammed into every nook and cranny.
