I just died a little inside.
Lol, Corner shimmying was introduced in Revelation not chronicles:lol:
Any who....Lol @ this
I dunno why games like mario party, super mario ect. haven't started to get too repetitive for me. In fact I really never thought it was kinda repetitive, I dunno maybe cause I just like certain kinds of games like that, and I don't mind playing similar games like it.
Then again that's just me.
o.o how about halo though? it was the same **** all over again for each one and "adults" bought it, went freaking crazy for it. >.> they barely improved it, but if they kept making sequels for it people would still wet themselves and get it.
Dont be hatin...
it is wierd no doubt... all the mario titled games or games that star a mario character.... no other game character has even came close... he makes an apperance in over 200 games as of now, and hes a 1st party game character !!!, he's only been on one brand console.
and doesnt seem to be leaving anytime soon... his games usually range from a 7-10 but very few are considered "bad" by any review... maybe considered the same old same old but never stragith out called garbage...
most mario games are thought through and more than 6 months are spent on each one so they never turn out to be the cheep reprocessed junk we are so use to sequal games being...
But bored... never maybe if he didnt have more than a few style games.. if it was all SMB SMB2 SMB3 ect. ect. ect.. maybe but there are all the different sports,party,paper,kart,smash brothers... you just cant get sick of him cause every ware you look hes doing something different...
there might always be a Mario game like SMB 1,2,3 SMworld, SM64,Mario sunshine, and now Mario Galaxy... but honestly its only been one main title game since SNES... after that its different types of game with him co-staring in them...
Hes the top dog.. the Elvis Presley of video games... he might not fit in with the times as much anymore, but people still love him and no one will ever top him... aslong as a game is made with his name on it it will be bought by the truckloads...
and the fact is he can do whatever he wants "it is a game they can program whatever they like" but he sells so well doing what hes great at why change it?
If he had to have a Halo type game to sell he'd still be the most badass plumber with a gun you saw..lol
As gaming becomes more mainstream its not going to make games more hardcore... if anything the hardcore group will get smaller and more elite, while the mainstream turns back to what it use to be... and thats games like Mario
If anything with nintendos new grasp on the gaming market expect to see alot more Mario, they are still some of the highest selling games in the world... so they got that going for them... i do believe Galaxy acctually was the highest world wide sale since launch wasnt it?
but ya your right everyone seems bored....
OMFG U H8 MARIO!!11 u sux
hes just a kid that never could save the princess in SMB... and no matter how many times you showed him he couldnt figure out how to get the crown by jumping on the koopa.... all the years of built up anger and feelings of not being good enough... he had to let it out sometime... lol
I havnt played a new Mario that I liked in a decade.
SMG was alright I guess.
Why do people generally not get bored with Mario platformers? It's so simple that the author should only ask it as a rhetorical: Miyamoto is a creative genius that can make each game feel like a different experience. Also, it helps that there have been only 2-3 Mario games in the last decade.
But I think it's hilarious that somehow a "deep story" makes Mario from a "same old" game to a "hardcore" game. Basically, this article is stating "I grew up and so should Mario" which is shallow and selfish. Mario will NEVER lend itself to be a "mature" game. Mario platformers will NEVER rely on storytelling. Get over it. It's like if you played Super Mario 64, you played Galaxy. They have distinct styles of gameplay. Why do the "mature" gamers always talk about Mario "needing deep storylines"?
Lastly, the writer sounds like he didn't play Super Mario Galaxy at all.
mario make me so horny.
Anyway, I completely agree with this article. Its like "WOW" its kind of nice to see someone else think it and say it out loud. I think this is why I personally didnt find SMG to be Wii's best game and certainly not GOTY. It was somewhat entertaining but that was it. I played Super Mario Bros. when I was 4 , back in 92' Super Mario World/Super Mario All-Stars were good/new. Then Mario 64, then after that it really wasn't anything new except for in SMG it has planets. But it was essentially the same game but prettier.
We are not bored of mario because he has so many jobs...
the thing is, it's interesting to see mario do atleast 1 new thing like in galaxy, what did he do new, he spun and made me sick with his gravity changes, in sunshine he had fludd, in 64, it was 3d. mario always brings something new, thats why it never dies.
The same reason you people still play with pacifiers
Its the same characters but its a different game each time.
I knew I would like you
its a stupid argument... thats like bashing Halo Guys for liking halo 2 alot... Is it as good as the first and just as much fun to play little different here and there? sure.. its great... its not the original but you still can play it...lol
its just a rare is all usually in the gaming world we have a good game ruined by a sequal.. but there are a few that live up to there name just about every time and keeps us comming back for more
Mario just has been around the longest but there are plenty of other games that have had the same type of sucess
Final fantasy what XXIV will be out soon...lol everyone still loves it
Look at Link/Zelda thats not going away anytime soon
Resident Evil Has has alot of years under its belt now
Halo has a big enough cult following you know they would sell it up untill number 20 is released even if they didnt change a thing...
Most kinda Come last a few years and Go away like... ex. Mortal Combat, Doom,Kirby
But for a few they are lasting characters that you couldnt just toss to the side even if it was time... So your too old to eat mushrooms and save the princess... everyone gets it...
the real question is why do you care enough to write a 10 paragraph post on the fact you dont love Mario anymore? Or are you trying to convince yourself more than you are us?
