I read news that the new Mario game was outsold by Knack.... crazy.
As someone who purchased both games, I can tell you that I played Knack more, and was more invested in it during my play-time. That says something about Mario.
Mario is definitely a better game, undoubtedly, but it's also so much more boring. There is just nothing interesting about Mario anymore, and the Duplo Blocks aesthetic is really not fooling me anymore.
No... it says a lot about you though.
Thank god Mario has more interesting things going for it than an aesthetic then, right? Like... actually being fun.
