Least favorite 'playing' 3D Mario. Note, i haven't played Sunshine or 3D World yet.
Beautiful visuals, imaginative worlds, great soundtrack(most of the time, although it dips a bit out of Mario territory), fun motion controls(bubble blower curser, web sling shots, star Curser ect) but ultimately i just wasn't the biggest fan of it's slower paced controls, the bowser battles were weak and the Hub world was such a pain to nagivate. This game virtually has no replay value, in the sense of bettering your time & blazing through each and every level because it's so slow paced.

3D Land had far better controls....If Nintendo isn't going to make full use of mario's movements with the analog stick as seen in mario 64, then they should of just gave him the run button like in 3D land, the mini-leap again in 3D land was also amazing. I would of prefered to see these controls adopted in Galaxy that's for sure.

Yeah, like Wario Land Shake it! and Metroid Prime 3. ;) Might as well throw in Zack & Wiki. Heck i even had a better time playing Super Paper Mario. That game was awesome when you weren't drowning in a sea of text.lol

The list was pretty awful, as most Nintendo games stopped after the halfway mark, but Galaxy certainly deserves the top spot. The game was flawless and set a brand new standard for platformers.

Surprised that the best game of the generation was on hardware very similar to that of the previous.

To blessed to be stressed.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

It's one of if not the favorite game of all time. It's was universally loved. But I didn't think it would be #1. Congrats!

The only recent games I can think of any way they could be better are :

Portal 2
Super Hexagon
Donkey Kong Country Returns

(Portal 2 especially because my natural bias was against).

I thought it was a pretty good list, and SMG is a deserving number one for sure. Criticising them for not having Wii Fit on there? Okay...

Mario Galaxy was a great game, it had its flaws, but so does every game. I'm surprised to see Twilight Princess at #53, I definitely thought it was more popular than that.

I think I probably agree. (Not bothered about the story).

Personally, I disliked the lack of a proper HUB world, but that's just my opinion. On the other hand, except for some new power-ups and Yoshi, the game wasn't that different from the first Galaxy. Most of its succes was made possible by the first game, I think. Galaxy 2 just added a little more, the game itself wasn't that unique or fresh. Nevertheless, it was a great game.

Yeah, I liked Galaxy 2 more, but honestly I thought the best of game of the last generation was Skyward Sword. Nice that their #1 went to a Wii game though.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

While Xenoblade deserved it more, I'd still rather have Galaxy get it over COD or Battlefield (not that Battlefield is bad, it just in no way is GOTG material).
