Re: Video: 11 Reviews for Super Mario Odyssey that Are So Bad They're Good

Just look at all the one star reviews on Amazon for GtSport. Apparently it's one of the worst games ever made according to certain individuals. These people know their stuff. Don't think so.

The internet makes negative opinions very loud. Trust your own instinct and judgement. That's what I say. Don't let little 'Johnny know nothing' sway your opinion.

I haven't played Odyssey. It does look easy. Unfortunately 20 years ago Nintendo stated their games would get easier. It's unfortunate. I hope to get it some day. My favourite Mario is Sunshine.

The power doesn't bother me. What I was original saying was I would like if Nintendo did a cheaper version of Switch that didn't have the portability and was just a block that connected to the TV. I don't know why people think that is an impossible dream when it was only discussed on this site about a year ago.
All I care about is the games. I prefer to play on a TV. That's it. The reason I did refer to it being underpowered is for €330 and to be only used as a home console (which is all I would use it for) it is just too expensive.

Who is struggling with the concept of a hybrid? It must be you because it's very easy to comprehend. I think what you mean is; It's amazing how difficult some people find it to understand that not everyone wants what you want. I'm not even going to try and explain because I'd be wasting my time.

Please don't be referring to me in your comments like I'm some sort of an idiot. I forgot more about gaming than you'll ever know. And remember we all have different opinions. You love Switch. I don't. See different.

If you have preconceptions going into a game that is odiously a total new concept in a series. I don't actually know where a mindset like that is going. Accept it for what it is.
Personally I thought BOTW was ok. I'm not a Zelda fanatic. I like Zelda games. Some more than others. All Zelda games suffer from a negative emotion and BOTW suffered from it too. They can be tedious and boring.
RPGs in general are boring.
I didn't like some of the enemies either. They look like they were dropped in straight out of Windwaker.
To summarize; overlong head wreak. Good but over rated.

I've no idea tbh. If you look at a free rom running on an emu and compare it with with VC or SNES mini. The lines are much thicker an clearer around the animations on the VC and SNES mini.

I looked at the Street fighter 2 turbo manual download that came with the SNES mini and if refers to the 20mb of data used to store the game. I must check the Rom size for that game later.

If something is shrunk it's going to effect quality. I honestly believe Nintendo are using the full data package compared to a shrunken Rom.

I'm not thinking anything. I shouldn't have said you had an air of entitlement. Tbh I couldn't care less. 😊 The SNES mini is overpriced for what it is.

Nintendo know how to milk their products and software. I'll say one thing. Some of the games on the NES mini are pretty lame whereas on the SNES the quality if much superior. That's going to effect price. Sometimes price is determined by how much an individual is willing to pay for a product.

If you don't want to take the extra controller into account, you can. Nintendo have taken into account. It's a SNES controller. SNES controller's compatible with Wii were going for £50. You think they're worth nothing?

I disagree with everything you're saying.

Are songs from the 80s & 90s worthless? Don't think so. You sound like you have an air of entitlement about you and everything from the past should be free. Or dirt cheap.

I did my own comparison on Yoshi's island. It looks a lot cleaner and plays smoother on the SNES mini compared to my hacked Wii which I have connected with an official Nintendo RGB cable.

It could be to do with the tiny ROMs used in the hacked Wii. The rewind feature is very good. I'm finding myself using it a lot in my quest for perfect scores in Yoshi's island.
