64 is the only one I find myself revisiting over and over and over again. It blew me away back then, and whether it's nostalgia that justifies whatever flaws it may have, it's still the only Mario game that really captured me - something I doubt is soon to happen again.
galaxy 1! I see it as the arkham asylum to galaxy 2's arkham city. galaxy 1 might have had less variety and content overall but I enjoyed everything feeling familiar and traversing between levels being its own hubworld rather than the dissonant menus. I don't mind playing the same levels over and over if they still feel enjoyable every time. also, galaxy 1 was the first of its kind and blew me away when i bought it on release
I got heavy nostalgia for 64 but galaxy is my favorite. Galaxy 2 improved on it in some ways but it lacks the impact the first did for me due to how unexpectedly I liked it. Galaxy is one of my favorite games of the gen hands down. A fantastic game.
I have a lot of nostalgia for 64, but Galaxy.
Super Mario Sunshine, however, can burn in a fire.
I can't believe galaxy is winning. I loved galaxy and it's an amazing game, right up there as one of the best games of the current gen but 64 is GROUNDBREAKING!!! It was a mindblowing game and will remain in the history of videogames FOREVER!! there is no galaxy without 64. though I havent played galaxy 2 or 3d land, i'm sure they're great! sunshine has to be the worst. of course it's not a bad game by a long shot but the lack of polish and overall lack of creativity is shocking and way WAY below nintendo standards, especially considering it was their flagship Mario title for the little purple cube.
