43. Super Mario Bros 3 (New!), first impression 8, replayability 6, technical 9.

Pros: Branching paths, platformer perfection, what i would call hands-down the best final bowser fight almost across the franchise (with maybe the Galaxy games out ahead. Maybe). This game introduced power-up overload in the most delightful way as well, blazing the trail for those who followed.

Cons: Mostly that Nintendo chose to re-release it after Super Mario World (both games I played in their "Advance" forms). Mario Bros 3 is a great game on its own, but inferior in most metrics that count to Mario World, so having played it second, it felt like "been there, done that, but it was better in World." I wasn't the biggest fan of the airships, either.

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
