Man, this just fuels my desire for a modern Super Mario movie even more.

Mario Odyssey will be amazing. Every 3D Mario has been amazing, except some of the more tedious parts of Sunshine, but I loved it otherwise.

Sunshine had an odd difficulty curve from what I recall. You could easily get 2-3 shines in just one hour or under and then struggle a lot to get another one.

Agreed. This game is exceptionally better than Sonic Forces.

Finally got the game! So excited!

Possible contender of GOTY next to Breath of the Wild!

I tried this game out today.
Itís nothing to write home about.

The retro wall segments were mildly entertaining, albeit too easy.

Galaxy 2 definitely remains the last "core" game... the rest seem like strange side things, experiments or half games.

New Super Mario Bros U, Super Mario 3D Land, Super Mario 3D World, etc. Plenty of Mario going around.

But this one looks to top them all & I am hyped!

So I've been playing some Super Mario Odyssey and even picked up New Super Mario Bros U (Deluxe, for Switch).

Shocker, but I have to agree with myself. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is a lot of fun... but it's definitely a far cry from a core installment. It's a look down memory lane. All of the core games try something completely different than the ones before it and this is just a nostalgia fest, a sidegame if ever there could be one. Compare any of the core Mario games... they're as different as all can be, by design.

Super Mario Odyssey... totally the first core game since the Super Mario Galaxy duology.

Super Mario Bros. 1 - 1985
Super Mario Bros. 2 - 1988
Super Mario Bros. 3 - 1988
Super Mario World - 1990
Super Mario World 2 - 1995
Super Mario 64 - 1996
Super Mario Sunshine - 2002
Super Mario Galaxy - 2007
Super Mario Galaxy 2 - 2010
Super Mario Odyssey - 2017

That's it. That's the series so far. The rest is 100% side sh**/spinoff/retro stuff to make a buck or keep some form of Mario out there so that he's not forgotten in between the "real" games. I'm not saying they don't count in Mario continuity (if there can be such a thing), I'm just saying the core games are like, say the numerical Resident Evil games, and everything else is like Resident Evil: Code Veronica and all the other spinoffs.

Code Veronica isn't a spin-off and Super Mario 3D World is a core Super Mario game no matter how people want to feel about it. The New Super Mario series is totally a sub series though, don't know why anyone would think otherwise.

What, are you kidding me? It literally is, in every sense of the term "spin-off." It's not a numerical entry in a series that adheres to numerical entries.

Except that C:V was originally developed as "RE 3", and even the series' creators consider it the "true sequel" to RE 2. What became 3 was originally developed as a spin-off game, and was still considered to be one internally. At some point they essentially just swapped titles, but the people who developed the games still consider C:V to be "part 3" and "Nemesis" to be the spin-off.

I barely follow the series, but even I know that much. "It has a number on it" is relatively inconsequential. Why the titles were switched around is fuzzy, but "marketing" is probably the reason.

Anyway, no, C:V is a sequel, not a spin-off.

The 'NEW ' Series of games arn't all that memorable, but they are decent enough platformers.


New Super Mario Bros on DS is a perfect sequel to SMB3. The Wii version is a perfect SMW Sequel.

The Wii U is fun, but otherwise forgetable.

SuperMario 3dLAND is much better than 3D World. Cat Mario is just a very weird power up idea.

I don't really care all that much for Oddysy. It's a fun enough playthrough..but not very repeatable, I think.


I'd rather see Super Mario Galaxy 3
