How come IGN and Gamespot say Paper mario is better than Mario & Luigi?

Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

Maybe because it tried new things, whereas the latest M&L is pretty damned by-the-numbers.

A revolutionary idea called an opinion.

Depends. Did they mean a specific one, like TTYD? If so, then yeah, of course. Possibly tied with Super Mario RPG as the best Mario RPG around, but overall, hell naw!

That is the problem with professional reviewers. They value "trying something new" way too much.

Which means basically they fall for the gimmicks most of us aren't fooled by.
