    How will Nintendo make another Mario that will beat Galaxy? I mean in galaxy Mario was in space with all those crazy gravity gameplay. So will Mario be back in mushroom kingdom in the next game? Or something completely different? I was actually thinking about time-travel...

    That is not a bad idea! Time travel can get quite complex, though. Lots of paradoxes. Might not appeal to the casual crowd Nintendo is determined to woo. Sigh. But they could keep it simple and just use it to give each level a different theme rather than tangling up the time lines with complex puzzles.

    I think they need to make a 2.5D mario platformer. But push the visuals into a more graphic style. When I played Viewtiful Joe, my first comment was they need to make a Mario game look like this.

    I wasn't a big fan of Super Mario Galaxy. Or Metroid Prime 3, to be honest. So I don't think it will take much to "beat Galaxy." I am liking Okami a lot, though. It's really fun so far.

    Note: That idea is not mine, I'm just sharing it. I figured it would be awesome and would sell more than Little Big Planet.

    Only it shouldn't be called Super Mario Planet. How about Super Mario Universe.

    I'd have to agree. Don't flame me, but I thought Galaxy was average.

    I think either a totally new setting or a revamped classic setting and I want to get rid of the lives system which would allow for more challanging puzzels. Thats about it really, other than that I will let the developers decide what to do.

    I think the next Mario game will be a direct sequel to Galaxy, so I guess it won't surpass it. It will still be awesome though.

    I remember I read somewhere that they were working on the gravity ideas since Mario 64 came out. Apparently they were using that game's engine to test some things.

    Prior to Galaxy, I considered Super Mario Bros. 3 the best Mario game of all time.  It took them 17 years to outdo it.  I figure we're not due again until 2024.  So have patience.

    Nintendo did no wrongs with Super Mario Galaxy, and I think in order to top it they'll have to introduce a new gameplay mechanic that changes the way gamers play Mario.
    In Galaxy that was Gravity, and the addition of new and radically different worlds that challenged the gamers to think in a new way.
    Sure, time travel is possible, but how would  that fit into the world?
    That being said Mario is a franchise that can do practically anything, except adult content, and I suppose Miyamoto could always find a way to add it in.

    I didn't think they could beat Super Mario 64, but they went ahead and did it. I have no worries concerning the next Mario title. As long as they put in as much care into the major titles as they have been, Mario will never become Sonic.

    I'm still waiting for Super Mario Bros. 4.  No, Super Mario World was not Super Mario Bros. 4 and neither was New Super Mario Bros.  Like I've said before, you have WiiWare, do something with it.  I really hope Mega Man 9 sells crazily and Nintendo notices.  Then again I don't know why I have hope for anything Nintendo anymore.  So sad.

    Time travelling on a Mario game has already been done...so it's probably a return to the roots. And I'm not talking about Mario 128 or 256, but Super Mario Bros...4? And a much higher level of difficulty. Todays' Mario games are way too easy when compared to the 80s' and 90s'.

    I didn't think Super Mario 64 would be beaten by Super Mario Galaxy but it did and it is gonna take a big effort to topple that game but if anybody can do it. Miyamoto and his team can. Add online to the next game for stages like 100 coins races or other types of races in Mario games then who knows we could have a Galaxy beater.

    I thought Galaxy was pretty average overall. I still don't understand the hype and definitely think it's one of the most overrated games I can think of. I personally prefer Super Mario Sunshine, which is not without its flaws but it does a lot of things right. I find it amusing how nearly all of the Nintendo fans (even many review sites) were totally in love with Super Mario Sunshine, and then they all turned against it and bashed it once Mario Galaxy came around. Anyway, I enjoyed the whole vacation setting of Sunshine, but now I think it's time for Mario to get back to work. How about a Super Mario Bros. 4? It doesn't have to be 2D, but I'd definitely like to see more key-players involved. Bring back the Koopa Kids, have Waluigi and Wario wrecking some havoc, you know? There were only like 4 different bosses in Galaxy, a few of which you fought several times. I think the next Mario needs more castles, more tanks, more mayhem.

    Whatever they do next, it will have to use the newest Wii peripherals, because that is pretty much what Nintendo does now. So, I'd expect a lot more physical movement with the Motion Plus and a few Balance Board segments.
