Super Mario Galaxy is losing? Are you guys high?

#2 Posted by AMyggen (1998 posts) -

Close one for me, but gotta go With SMG. And dat soundtrack!

#3 Posted by Mento (2258 posts) -

Already closer than I anticipated. I'm guessing because Super Mario Galaxy was a system exclusive (and for a system not a lot of people particularly care for), despite being more fun and having more craft. This could get interesting.

Played through galaxy with my at the time 5 year old nephew, not many gaming experience can match up to that. Having said that I just watched the book of Eli and I'm all like...apocalypse fuck ye \m/.

Hmm :/

I think I've voted for Mario in every poll it's been in. I didn't even think it was all that great when I was playing through it, it's just upon reflection I realize it's the best platformer I've ever played. Fallout 3 was a decent RPG in a sea of decent RPGs.

#10 Posted by frankfartmouth (1016 posts) -

Super Mario Galaxy for me. That was the most innovative Mario game since 64. Fallout 3 was good, but it didn't stand out as much. It also got really monotonous after awhile.

#11 Posted by Dalai (6880 posts) -

Really, guys? Fallout 3? Of all the games Super Mario Galaxy loses to it has to be Fallout 3?

#12 Posted by MEATBALL (2786 posts) -

Galaxy, damnit!

#13 Posted by bigjeffrey (4162 posts) -

I have not played Mario game.

#14 Posted by Milkman (16228 posts) -

Wow, you guys really like Fallout 3, huh?

#15 Posted by Liquidus (939 posts) -

I really like Fallout 3...but come on, against Mario Galaxy? You people are nuts.

#16 Posted by FriendlyPhoenix (273 posts) -

I played a few hours of Mario Galaxy and disliked every minute of it. For all of the problems Fallout has(which are numerous), I could at least stand playing it for dozens of hours.

#17 Posted by Flappy (2034 posts) -

Mario fans are gonna be super salty if this continues.

#18 Posted by TowerSixteen (538 posts) -

Dammit, it's like the best Mario vs. the worst Fallout and Fallout is still winning. I'm gonna have to go find a bunch of geezers with which to commiserate on the state of my generation.

#19 Edited by yinstarrunner (1171 posts) -

Why the fuck is Galaxy losing? I might just have to leave this community forever. What a disgrace.

(That was sarcasm. Chill out. But seriously, all you people voting Fallout are wrong.)

#20 Posted by 49th (2545 posts) -

Wow this site is wrong on nearly all of these.

#21 Edited by Hayt (213 posts) -

This post is simply "which game have most people played". The bigger selling game wins every time. So exclusives like Witcher and Mario are doomed

#22 Posted by mlarrabee (2760 posts) -

I'm amazed by how many people think SMG is even nearly as good as Fallout 3.

I finished every single quest in that buggy, messy game and still wanted more.

What one does when one is seven years old never leaves one, I suppose.

If the superior modern Fallout game was on the poll, this might be a competition. As it stands now, all of you people are on dust.

Ha ha funny comments here

#26 Edited by Canteu (2814 posts) -

Nintendo and Mario sucks.

Fallout 3 is the best.

Opinions.

#27 Posted by Coafi (1433 posts) -

I think Fallout: New Vegas is better than Fallout 3, so that means that Super Mario Galaxy is also better than Fallout 3. What I'm trying to say here is that Fallout 3 is good, but great it is not.

#28 Posted by Hailinel (22712 posts) -

To those of you voting for Fallout 3 over Super Mario Galaxy:

What the hell is wrong with you?

Given that Sleeping Dogs beat GTAV and Uncharted 2 beat Minecraft, I'm gonna say no. Not that I'm any happier about this one, but whatcha gonna do?

#30 Posted by crithon (2582 posts) -

Late to the Party on Fallout 3.... I had about 7 crashes before leaving the vault. ...... I'm okay with crashes, but serious RPG shouldn't mean bad controls or just randomly jabbering characters, floating stuff. BLAH! Glad I got this for 5 bucks.

#31 Posted by McGhee (6091 posts) -

Love all the butthurt over Fallout 3 constantly winning.

#32 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (4445 posts) -

Although I think Mario Galaxy deserves to win, I can't say I'm upset with Fallout 3.

#33 Posted by outerabiz (640 posts) -

people like fallout 3 more than smg, and that's why it's winning. Or maybe it's because of the illuminati, or sales or because of everyone being on moondust!

Given that it's next hurtle is Mass Effect 2 I suspect you should enjoy it while you can.

That will be interesting, but I think it will be pretty close.

#36 Edited by BisonHero (5671 posts) -

Wait, so first Super Mario Galaxy beat out Rock Band (which frankly it should've lost to), and now SMG is losing to Fallout 3 when it should be winning handily in this particular matchup?

You guys are impossible.

#37 Posted by Sackmanjones (4609 posts) -

I've lost touch with the Nintendo franchises. SMG is awesome but I prefer fallout 3

#38 Posted by GrantHeaslip (1357 posts) -

I recently got a 360, so I may still eventually play Fallout 3, but I can't fathom voting for a game that shipped in such a messed up state, especially on the PS3. On a few occasions, I thought about picking up the PS3 version, read about what a mess it was, and thought "nope, fuck that."

I'm sure Fallout 3 has a lot going for it, but no game should routinely lock up. There's no excuse.

(Also, I think Super Mario Galaxy is one of the best games of the generation.)

There are nuances that complicate it (especially games that get featured heavily on the site), but I think he's generally right about the game most people have played winning out.

Sleeping Dogs vs.GTA V is a weird outlier because I feel like we reached the backlash against thinking GTA is all that good way faster than usual, so everyone is primed to go "Mannnn, that game is more of the same". And then Sleeping Dogs gets a bunch of votes because Vinny made that game more entertaining than it could ever be on its own, especially when a bug basically doubled the length of one of the Quick Looks.

Maybe to clarify, the poll generally goes to "which game sold an order of magnitude more than the other, unless a game's fun is not so easily had". Yes, Minecraft sold a ton, but I'm sure a lot of people tried it out and it wasn't for them, or they got bored with it after a while and looking back on it, they don't think as fondly of it as the fun little Indiana Jones movie that is Uncharted 2. Uncharted 2 basically can't possibly outstay its welcome, whereas lots of people have gotten burnt out on Minecraft after a while.

It's a me! Vault Boy! KICKING THE PISS OUT OF MARIO.

#41 Posted by Slag (3345 posts) -

SMG, It's Mario and the platforming is as good as it got this gen.

#42 Posted by Shishkabob (18 posts) -

My thoughts: "I like both, so I'll vote for the underdog" and proceed to vote for Fallout 3. It's winning.

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

#43 Posted by Box3ru13 (700 posts) -

FO3 isn't better than New Vegas, it isn't better than Witcher 2 and it sure as hell isn't better than SMG. WHAT.THE.FUCK.GUYS?

#44 Posted by BisonHero (5671 posts) -

@box3ru13: @shishkabob: I feel your pain. I'm amazed this many people still remember Fallout 3 so positively. I guess the world really made an impression upon people, but I definitely never would've thought it had a chance at beating Super Mario Galaxy.

#45 Posted by MormonWarrior (2485 posts) -

You all suck. Super Mario Galaxy is the best game ever made.

Pretty much this. Wow, just wow.

#47 Posted by bushpusherr (714 posts) -

I'm not even an especially huge fan of Mario, but holy shit Fallout 3 was mad boring. Can't believe it's getting through these rounds.

Of all games, SMG is not the game you can pull this card for. The Wii sold amazingly and Super Mario Galaxy was one of the best-selling games on the system.

What you guys seem to think of Fallout 3 is exactly how I think of Skyrim, but i'm not seeing nearly the amount of needless hate when that game dominates every poll. Seriously, folks were losing their minds over how important CoD4 was and that game's getting WRECKED by samey-RPG-with-boring-story-boring-locations-boring-world.

#49 Edited by Hayt (213 posts) -

@lackingsaint: I have absolutely no way of proving this but from what I observe I feel that while Wii has a huge presence in the world at large it is not represented in the same way on this forum which is why it's losing out here. I prefer Fallout over SMG but I just don't think games in these polls are winning for the right reasons.

#50 Edited by Hunter5024 (5174 posts) -

Man I was with you guys on almost every decision before, but this round I disagree with basically every game that's winning.
