I hope the "I have beaten 30 times" is just sarcasm. If you can beat the game in a short time, thats terrible. The best game, in my opinion, is an endless game, but I can still settle with a 6-8 hour story game as long as its appealing (Otherwise, why bother). I don't understand Mario Games because of how short its becoming. I spent SEVERAL HOURS playing Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine for more than 6-8 hours. Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, 4 hours complete... f*** it. Probably because I can't screw around the world like the other two before Galaxy.
