wow now even story doesnt matter to wii fans

You deserve a  ban for this. Play zelda and metroid and then come back.

Stories in Metriod sucked IMO, Zelda has ok story but its nothing special

Judging by the reactions when some site gave zelda 8.6, it makes perfect sense to give nintendo games too high scores. Saves a lot of trouble and nintendo-fans propably just agree.

But that way they wouldn't have so many hits ;)



     

 

i loved mario 64. and sunshine. and galaxy.. but this game is over rated. its the same shit as the last 3 nothing has changed.

Should it be 97? No way but it should be close because it is fun. But points should be knocked off because im sick of finding 120 stars for the 3rd time (4th if you count the DS).

I would love a complete over haul of ALL mario and Zelda games like they did with metriod. im just bored of knowing how every thing will play out. i'd love for zelda to get RPG type elements that be cool. Mario should mab be open world. yea that be cool also.

 

Just my opinion dont bash me for it..

on gamerankings.com super mario galaxy is the 2nd / 3rd highest rated game of all time. this confuses me. 

like i LOVE the game, just like every1 else but how can a game with not so good looking graphics and a generic story get that high? like i could c it being an 85 maybe 88 but 97??? these no way crappy stories and bad graphics only count for 3 % of the overall.

im suspecting some bias towards this. 

was it rated so high just because it was a mario game? like did reviwers decide to veto the story part because its a mario game? did they ignor graphics because its on the wii?

thoughts?

 

It's a fucking video game. Story and graphics do not make a game, and in fact without gameplay they have NOTHING to do with gaming.

 

My thoughts are that you need to re-evaluate your opinion of what makes a game. A great story with great graphics and shitty or mediocre gameplay, is still shitty and mediocre.

hmmm shenmue had a great story with great graphics and shitty gameplay... but people loved it...



You might as well force all sports games to be below 90 since they have non existent stories.

Good stories are only required for some genres, like RPG, if I play an RPG with a terrible story I would hope it gets knocked off. But if I play Mario and say there isn't enough character development, well, that doesn't really apply to this type of game.

Seriously... I know why the game was rated so high... um... because the reviewers who rated it, rated it high. Now if they we're biased... well we'd have to ask them. ;op

For myself... I think the game deserved it. It is a great game that I believe deserves the praise it gets.

As for the question of graphics... and story... well the graphics are great for this gen... and not just for the wii. As far as story goes, tell me one game in the platformer genre that has an epic storyline with all the other stuff galaxy has going for itself as well. Very few and far between if at all.

I would rather ask why OoT is rated so high. Blocky as shit graphics and no voice-acting? What the hell were reviewers smoking? Unless they were smoking hundred-dollar bills from all that Nintendo payola.

 

:P

hahah yes so true

 



Even though I firmly believe that fun is the main factor of making a game "good", I must say I think it's because of the Mario name.
However the game is somewhat groundbreaking, with the gravity aspects etc. so that in addition to many other factors (like the game is actually good) makes users put high scores.



If games were based on their stories, then RPGs would dominate the gaming market. Alas, they don't.
Super Mario Galaxy was a very refreshing experience for me, and I would give it a 9.5/10. However, in the end, aren't we all biased?
