Super Mario 3D World is a more "real" Mario game than SM64 or Sunshine

Mario games are linear platformers, there were two exceptions to this that happened to come out during a massive drought. Every 2D Mario and two thirds of 3D Marios focus on getting from the start of the level to the end, if you can not tolerate this style of gameplay it is time to move on to another series and stop throwing tantrum after tantrum after tantrum when each new Mario game is a linear platformer. You are entitled to your opinion, but you are not entitled to force a series to change genres to cater to it or to claim Nintendo is being lazy and not making "real" 3D platformers when the series doesn't change to the sub-genre you preferred. The linear Mario games are not being made to spite you or cheat you, they are what many people prefer and true to the series' roots.

This is factually right
Last of us Metascore: 94,86! Best game ever! Can't wait for the ps 4 to be released.

Hear that? It's the nostalgia brigade coming to tell you you're wrong or just reassuring yourself.

Ironically, the first Mario platformer I played at release was Super Mario 64. But the first I completed was Super Mario World in 1995.

I agree. Hopefully in December this will be hailed as the greatest Mario Game ever. I mean it happened with SMB, SMB3, SMBW, SM64, SMG, and SMG2. The only ones that dropped the ball were SMB2 and SMS. NSMB series is basically a continuation of the 2D games.

While Galaxy and Galaxy 2 I thought were better than 3D Land, 3D Land was definitely a hell of a lot better than 64 and Sunshine.

Eh, don't care what is more "real" of a Mario game. 64 and Sunshine were great games. I never gave Galaxy 2 a go, cuz Galaxy just wasn't much fun for me for some reason.

I never played Mario 64 until I got it for the DS in 2004. I played through it and wasn't really impressed with it. Galaxy 1 and 2, Sunshine, and 3D Land are much better. I'm very excited for 3D World.
I always rush here to tell GameFAQs my problems!

I prefer SM64 to "real" Mario games.
