45. Super Mario Bros. 2 (new!), first impression 8.5, replay 6.5, technical 7.5

Pros: It was my first Game Boy Advance game, and the crisp new SNES-level graphics made a strong impression on me at the time. It was also a different spin on Mario games than I had experienced to that point, with a wide different variety of enemies and multiple characters that had real differences, it was something of a tour-de-force considering i was still relatively new to gaming at the time.

Cons: Primarily that the game was too linear, without the more arcadey feel that games of its era possessed to counterbalance it. I also recall some bosses being downright mean, though it's been a while.

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
