Its not that Mario games are not what they used to be, its that those who grew up with Mario games on the NES and SNES need to learn that Mario games need to evolve. And they did.

I used to love SMB 1-3, Super Mario World, and Super Mario 64, heck I still revisit those games on a yearly basis, but I've learned to adapt to the new Mario games such as New Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Land 3D because they are amazing games and deserve it. Sure, I prefer the DS and 3DS Mario games over the console Mario games, but they're so damn good and bring me back to a time when Mario was all the rage and Nintendo was king of the world in video games. Fast forward 20+ years later and he still is thanks to the 3DS being the top selling video game console at the moment and the 2 Mario titles selling like crazy for it.

No, no, no, this is the exact problem. Most of the recent Mario titles have gone backwards from Galaxy instead of going forward or anywhere particularly new beyond "hey this new powerup is a thing!"

I understand the need for nostalgia games here and there, it's just been too much though.

Super Mario 3D World doesn't seem like a downgrade. It looks like a fresh new take on the Mario series, boasting with creativity, creative level design, beautiful graphics, catchy music, and is a step forward in the multiplayer Mario industry.

Games I'm playing currently: Legend of Zelda: A Link Betweeen Worlds, Tearaway
Games I'm excited for: Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros. 4, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8

Having said that, I wish the same thing could be said to Sonic.... He's so hated. I'm sympathizing him because of how innovative Lost world actually is and that people didn't like the game in the end..... :(

Really! The new game is that bad? D:
I saw the ing review for (which gave it a poor rating) and decided not to listen to them...What is at the end that players don't like? (I'm okay with spoilers)

@kkslider I honestly can't blame nintendo for that. Like I said before, I think they are starting to run out of ideas for mario...So it would not be too surprising if the games continue to go backwards or whatever...

The thing is, I don't think it's that difficult. It's difficult to make it good (maybe not for Nintendo specifically but for gaming making in general it is) but literally all I ask is a single, really good new gameplay mechanic that is HEAVILY focused on in a Mario platforming type game. One of the reasons I think 3D World is working out pretty well is because it's not doing that but at least it has a bunch of new ideas that are a bit different to keep things interesting. I've said before that while 3D World likely won't be the best Mario game or anything but that it would have no issue if it wasn't for every game in the past 2-3 years before this (Dark Moon aside) being underwhelming and too nostalgia obsessed.

Of course, it'd aslo help if they didn't release about five Mario games a year.

Nintendo should work on a grand mario game that would take way more time to make. Get their graphics, their plots, and mario's clever tricks. Not even confirming it until they feel it is perfect! :D

Like they did with LoZ wii u or SSB:3ds/wii u u_u

The thing is, Nintendo tries to make new things with their existing IP's. Mario will continue to look the same to us all because we have grown up with him. Nintendo tries to emulate the feel of the original Mario games to an extent that we still feel like its a Mario game we've played before. They can't make an open world Mario game because that's what Metroid is about. They can't make mario fly a spaceship because that's what Starfox is about. There are so little things they can only think for Mario and that comes to this extent. And that's why Mario has a whole bunch of spin offs like Sports, Puzzles, RPG's etc.

I think as much as everyone hates the "recycling" type approach they've been having for some titles, they are still improving for what they are.

New Super Mario Bros. U was my most favorite New Mario game. I didn't really like any of the other ones very much. 3D World looks exactly how an HD Mario should, IMO. I'm somewhat disappointed in how the Mario & Luigi series turned out, though.

Super Mario Sunshine was probably the most extreme Mario ever, BTW. It was more difficult, looked better, and had more options than any other Mario game.

I don't think people really know what they want anymore when it comes to Mario, for the most part.

Key word 'different'.

Ubisoft and Rockstar don't try and make all their games 'GTA in this setting' or such like, they make new series and characters to fit said settings and ideas.

All the people wanting Mario to be super different or 'innovative' fail to realise that the point of a series is literally more of the same, because that's what the buyers of the earlier installments want. It's the purpose of original franchises to innovate, not existing ones.

you know some spin offs come better than the main series! plus it looks like they put less money into those(when they're brand new and not part of a side series) so the developers have more freedom to take risks. I LOVE spin-offs they feel so fresh and full of feelings!


edit I LOVE good sipn-offs, not games that were rebranded to a famous IP and rushed to sell more and faster(with a few notable exceptions)

Spinoffs are fine. As long as it's clear they're spinoffs, and that the 'spinoff' isn't the ONLY game in the franchise for ages (cough Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts cough). What sucks is when a company decides 'right, let's make our series that was once about this about something completely different', or 'let's majorly genre shift the whole thing'.

Yeah spinoffs are fine but something like mass attack or Sticker Star require some thought process before the final execution.
