@JackEatsSparrows I do as well. Enjoy all 3 of those series. Thought Andromeda, while lacking in comparison to the rest, was a decent game a didn't deserve anywhere close to the outrage it got. Really excited about Anthem too!

Personally can add in Ubisoft as well. Probably have more of their games than any other 3rd party pub, and enjoy most of them. I know its cool nowadays to hate on all the big guys but they all make some great games.

@Buizel I don't really get this opinion on Odyssey. Structurally, it's nothing like previous Mario games.

I agree, actually, and felt quite silly saying it's like 64 and kinda wanna take it back. I wouldn't say its the least like 64 though (if we're including 3D World).

I think every 3D Mario has taken different elements from 64 and this has generally gone in their favour. 64 was innovative at the time but as a full package isn't quite what you'd expect today.

In particular I'm glad that they dumped the whole kicking you out of a stage once you've collected a star business.

Currently playing: Pokemon White (DS), Persona 4 Golden (PSVita), Transistor (Switch)

Favourite Final Fantasy: VIII

Favourite Mario Kart: Double Dash

Favourite 3D platform: Blinx

Favourite open world racing: The Crew

Favourite Rally: WRC 5

Favourite 2D platformer: Klonoa Advance

Plus I remember the time saying Persona 3 was your favourite RPG was your favourite RPG would get you weird looks. How times change. I only get really weird looks regarding Blinx from above,and the usual 'Dirt!’ for WRC 5.

@Ralizah But think of the size and scope of Odyssey vs 64? If you strip out all the "Banjo" collectables, and leave only the "level completion and challenges" moons, you'd still have a game roughly the size of 64. It takes the 64 ideas and quantity, and then throws 400% more "other stuff" (that's Banjo like) at it. 64 is tiny in core content. It just encouraged you to spend forever goofing around.

@Buizel You're absolutely right that 3D Land/World represent the starkest change in game design for 3D Mario. They really feel like their own thing, to be honest, borrowing from both 3D and 2D iterations.

So, in terms of decreasing likeness to SM64, I'd say they go:

Sunshine > Galaxy > Galaxy 2 > Odyssey > 3D World > 3D Land

As you point out, though, they're all different, and they all borrow somewhat from previous games.

While I'm not a fan of Mario 64 (at all), I really, really liked exploring the Mushroom Kingdom in Odyssey.

@NEStalgia Incidentally, if you strip out the gameplay from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, you're left with an average-length anime series.

@Ralizah LOL! Fortunately we spend all our tome managing our Pokeblades.

My favorite Sonic game, completely, 100% unironically...Shadow the Hedgehog

I like the branching paths and different missions. Also I played it when I was 8 and thought it was the coolest game of all time so nostalgia is blinding me here too.

@Link-Hero Honestly like, 3 months ago haha. I can definitely admit that the controls are a bit yikes and the camera is mega yikes but I dunno, I still like the vast variety of levels and the different missions and choosing your path. Plus even though I don't find the story or cutscenes cool anymore, I DO find them extremely hilarious so now I've unlocked a new layer of entertainment in the game

I like Diddy Kong Racing more than Mario Kart 64. You can use mini air planes, a hovercraft and a car. The racetracks are also fantastic and the item mechanic is very unique. You could upgrade your item if you obtained the same balloon which I is excellent imo.

The controls and graphics in Mario 64 are awful. Don't @ me.

@ReaderRagfihs not necessarily best but certainly my favourite is Twilight Princess. I love BoTW but it's so different from what I love about Zelda that I barely class it as one.

The N64 controller was great in my opinion. Never understood the hate for it. The only two controllers I never liked were the Megadrive pad and original Xbox “Duke” pad. Both felt too chunky and uncomfortable.

@BenGrimm The Duke is a tumor with buttons. I have no idea how anyone played with that thing.

I don't like the New Super Mario Bros series. It feels like too much of a template with not many game changing differences besides new powerups. I won't give up on a great original 2D Mario game but I don't want to see New Super Mario Bros Switch.

Pokémon Lets Go! is a pretty great addition to Pokémon series. They eliminated some annoying RNG and put more control in the player's hands. My only gripe is the lack of EVs.
