Some people are saying that their are other games getting repetitive also, while some are dismissing the notion that mario is repetitive and saying its not. Some are basically saying people still like it "just cause"
People know other games are getting repetitive and when they do you always see complaints saying the game sucks or brings nothing new. But the article is about why Mario brings the same things over and over yet people give it a sort of "pass" when it comes to repetitiveness.
Some people are saying he's an xbox fanboy, when he clearly said himself he likes the game, but was not pissing on himself like 95% of Wii fanboys when playing it. So why is it people like to say "Ohh, he's just a xbox lover and he hates Mario" what a bunch of bullshit, how about coming up with a real response instead of attacking the writer.
Please, tell me why is it that I dont enjoy SMG as much as you guys? I played all the mario platformers and SM64 was the last one to be really fun. Is it because im a "fanboy"? I dont like repetitive games, which is why I did not get all hyper like a 6 year old boy and go buy Halo 3 when it was released. The only reason im going to play Halo 3 (im going to burrow, not rent or buy) is to finish the story in the Halo trilogy.
Also comparing it to Disneys old movies that are released yet still selling. Like The Lion King and Beauty in the Beast, etc. Is not a real arguement, because those movies sell because of the parents who buy them for the kids. If I had a son or daughter and I saw those classic movies that I liked when I was a kid, of course ill buy it for my little kids. Which btw movies getting old does not make them obsolete. But a movie thats just like the older one is repetitive and tends to get bad critic reviews.
Anyway, some of you made some good responses, but some others made some stupid ones as if you really didn't have an answer to the article besides attacking the writer or other games.
