Most of the people who bought NSMBWii and DS just don't care much for games, and they only picked up a Wii or DS for the "gimmicks" of touch screen gaming and motion controls. 2D Mario just happened to be a familiar name so that was one of the games they bought.

Perhaps 2D platforming is straight up just easier to get right into, and quite frankly, coming from someone who grew up with them, they're in general just more fun to play. They typically have more replay value. There is just something about 2D gaming that screams "VIDEO GAMES", something that a lot of modern 3D games seem to have been trying very hard to get away from. Or that newer developers simply do not know how to tap into.
That is one thing that I'll say for Nintendo, for sure, is that even their 3D games, still FEEL like video games, they don't feel like wannabe playable movies. 3D Mario, while I prefer 2D Mario, still FEELS like Mario.
But overall, that doesn't mean 3D games are "bad". Only that, at least in this man's opinion, there is something classic (and classic styled) 2D games had, an "it" factor", that typically gets lost in transition in 3D games.
