23. Super Mario Galaxy 2 (last year 36), first impression 8.5, replay 8, technical 9
Pros: Most everything you like about Galaxy comes roaring back in terms of level design, with new additions like Yoshi and the green star hunts keeping things fresh. Luigi is available for use earlier too, making things more dynamic.
Cons: Rosalina was one of the best-conceived original Mario characters in a long time, and they went and replaced her with Lubba. Similarly, the Mario head is inferior to the Observatory.
Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
