Good question. For me, its on the way down. I loved Super Mario 64, by far the best in the series and Super Mario Sunshine was fun but not nearly as good imo.
Galaxy had the makings of a really good game but I never got comfortable with the controls and camera tbh (no, its not the Wiimote's fault, the controls in Zelda: TP were beyond awesome!).
The whole sphere idea was good on paper (for me, I know many will hate me for it) but it panned out into something more annoying than fun for me, I never got the control and overview I want in a platformer.
I hope the next Mario platformer will be something a little more traditional!



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

I think they'll keep up their good work. Their low point for me was Sunshine. That was such a bad game. Galaxy was amazing. It made me smile while I played it, just like Mario 64 did. I think that's the key for me. If I can play a game, and smile, really have fun just doing it, It's a good game. Some games just make me feel that I "have to" beat it, as in I've already put in a few hours, so I should get it done. I think if Nintendo keeps up the level of work from Galaxy, They'll be fine.



Predictions for 2009: (Right) (Wrong) (Partial)

Pokemon Gold/Silver DS Japan in September

NES colored Wii and SNES Classic Controler for Christmas

Super Role Bros for Christmas

FF Remakes announced; VII PS3 VIII 360 IX Wii

New Super Mario World November 2009

You kidding me? Nintendo is the ONLY one who CAN make good platformers without their characters getting killed in 10 years.

Crash Bandicoot- ruined after Crash Of the titans

Sonic-ruined after SEGA going out of hardware buisness

Mario-Still alive

This is the smartest thing anyone has said, ever.

As long as they keep on introducing new blood (new employees) new ideas will be born as there is always somebody with a cool idea every now and then.

Edi: oh yea and Super Mario Galaxy is by far the best Mario in my opinion. The controls were great and I had no problem with the camera at all.

Sonic was not ruined from going out of the hardware business, over 75% of the sonic team left.

 

Crash Bandicoot was always developed by naughty dog and was amazing, then they traded it to almost 4 other companies. Everytime a development team changes the game is ruined. Final Fantasy and games like it are exceptions since each one in the series is different.

 

Mario also had his share of absolute gardbage, only the really big releases are good for mario. Hotel Mario, Mario and Sonic olympics and others.

 

Somewhere along the line the Sonic team forgot what was good. Even there newest game, the werehog one had good platforming sections. It's like they got it right! Until a minute and a half is over and your this stupid fucking werehog with god awful controls. They don't understand they can keep it 2d and make it good graphically and similiar to LBP but with fast paced platforming.



I think Kirby is a strong testament to this argument. There have been some good ones but they're just good.. not great(with the exception of some remakes). The Kirby series in general needs a slight revamp.. then and only then can I say that Nintendo has a legacy of making great platformers.



Pixel Art can be fun.

 LBP IS 2D?

 

Crash Bandicoot's good game was Crash Twinsanity, and it was made by the same team who made Crash Of The Titans. But Crash was always a platformer or racer and in Crash of the titans they ruined it by changing the game in some action game for kids.

 

Mario had some share of absolute garbage, but that didn't stop them to sell good.
