There was a time when you were cool for knowing that SMB2 was known as Doki Doki Panic, but that time has been over for a while lol

Now is the time to inform people that SMB2 actually started out as a Mario game before becoming Doki Doki ;)

See? Now you're cool again!

The Lost Worlds was just bad design and cheap difficulty. There is a difference between genuinely hard games and cheap ones that are due to poor design.


Hard is hard, that's all there is to it. "Cheap" is merely an excuse poor players use that don't know what it means to be truly skillful

Good players win fair challenges. Great players beat impossible challenges.


I'm calling bull **** on that.

If a game requires luck to get throuh and not player skill, it's cheap. If touching a certain thing in a game kills you, except for the one that you have to touch to progress, that's cheap. Trial and error gameplay in general is cheap. Monsters that are invisible are cheap.

There's a million other examples, but I think I've made my point. Doing cheap crap like that is just an excuse for the develloper to be lazy instead of comming up with a legitamately difficult fair challenge. It's not something you should support.

I'd say:

SM2 > SMB1 > SMB3 > TLL

And obligatory TLL is a terrible romhack etc etc.

The "true Mario 2" argument- I totes saw it coming before I clicked on the topic.

with all this talk of Mario 3D World, and SMB2 US and JP, i think this board really thinks it's qualified to decide what really makes a "true" Mario title.

Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 2 aren't even hard. Super Mario Bros. 3... Isn't too.
Super Mario Bros.: The Lost levels is the true inferno. It can be compared to stuff like Metal Slug.
