    I was responding to AutumnWind's comment about the two of them being rated just as highly.

    SMG's cult following wasn't shown so much on the Wiichat boards as other review sites and such. Far more 9.5/10s and 10/10s than one would expect. The "Mario bump" I suppose, but the word from the trenches seems to paint a different picture.

    I still want to get it though and see for myself.

    I do think CoD4 and Bioshock, and *maybe* Halo would have still beaten SSBB. Its not revolutionary in any way like Bioshock was. Its a continuation of the same formula. I do agree that Smash and Mario are very much 'cult' games, whereas Halo is very main-stream. Even if you like it or hate it, you know what Halo is.

    Mario is a cult game now?

    Anything "Mario" get a lot of extra love just for the sake of "Mario" and Nintendo loyalty. Regardless of gameplay, graphics, etc.

    It's like no one wants to publicly criticize a Mario game in front of their fellow Nintendo fans. He is the de-facto mascot of Nintendo.

    Take Super Paper Mario. It got crazy reviews. I had high hopes when I bought it. I ended up hating that game with a passion. None of my friends have been able to even get into it.

    Hearing other people talk seemed to back up the theory that, the less-public the voice, the more-willing they were to be honest about it. SMG seems to be a lot like that too, although I haven't gotten it yet. I still will, though, just to satisfy my curiosity.

    I think Mario can be considered a cult game in the sense that most people will pick up SMG, or Mario Party, etc, and thats it. Whereas pretty much only actual Nintendo fans will have played every core game, all the way back to the original.

    Look, if you're calling Halo mainstream then Mario Galaxy pretty much has to be as well. It's one of the biggest sellers on the Wii.

    your thoughts?

    .
    Thats because there was no online play craziness for Galaxy like there is Brawl.
    And there wasn't as much hype for the game like Brawl received.

    It wouldn't have won GOTY last year maybe, but I do think it has a good shot this year. Better chance than Galaxy did of winning it last year, despite Brawl not being too different from its predecessors its still a very great game. Plus if it came out last year Brawl wouldn't have been as good as the online would have been much worse and there may have been modes missing.

    It wouldn't have felt as good is all.
