I think nsmbu was a step in the right direction for 2d mario. I don't see how 3d mario could be considered stale in any way. Galaxy 2 was the only 3d mario that was a sequel and even then it still had tons of fresh new ideas. If people dislike the mario franchise so much, stop buying the games. If a game sells well you are only encouraging them to keep making new games like because it sells. If no one bought it, then nintendo would try something new to garner interest. Personally I buy every mario title that sparks my interest, and I'm certain a lot of the folks on here bashing mario will still preorder the next main mario entry. --- Apathetic since I don't care when. i7 3770s @ 3.1ghz, asus gtx 660, gskill ripjaws 8 gb, ASUS|P8B75-V R, ocz 700w psu, 1.5 tb seagate hdd
Mario is slowly starting to show its staleness for me. However, i like the 3D Mario games more than the 2D Mario games now.
I think the 2D Mario is prob getting stale because the gameplay are too familiar and hasnt change much. Aside from occasional new powerups and mechanics. 3D Mario games all have different gameplays(plus settings) that makes them unique. --- XBox Live GT: MastaMez http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=TheWheelman1
Is God of War getting stale? Is Uncharted getting stale? Is Halo getting stale? Is Gears of War getting stale?
Every single one of those series release a new game every few amount of years with very few changes. Do people complain about those? WELL DUUUUUUH NO!! BECUZ IS NOT NIENTIENDO!! --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43C2aBKMqeA
mario is old.. same thing over and over and over and over
same can be said for alot of games the only reason mario gets so much flak is cause he is over 25 years old and nintendo's mascot but until mario stops selling millions he isn't going anywhere. If mario changes too much then its not mario and the fans will get angry and nitnendos risks not selling millions. --- Currently Playing: Aliens: Colonial Marines (PC) NNI: Gaiaknight
We need Luigi to star in more games that don't involve saving his brother... like his adventure in the Waffle Kingdom in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door or something to that effect ;) --- I have my G1...
