Crash also kinda sucked.
Mario 64 was like the original Mario Brothers in that opon release it became the gold standard of platformers that everyone else tried to rip off.
im sorry but there is no way i can agree with that mario 64 was the mario game that sucked so bad i stopped playing mario for awhile, it reverted years of development and fun and turned it into a buggy night mare with a horrid controller, and honestly lame game play. i would put sunshine above mario 64 as a better game. compared to super mario world or super mario brothers 3 this game is a huge letdown, and did not have enough graphical splendor to wow us like contemporaries on other systems. at best it was a mediocre mario game only being notable as the flagship n64 game and first major mario 3d game. it would have been better to wait till they got a better hold on 3d on the system and put it out latter in the systems life, or made mario 64 in 2d and actually good with the skill set they had at the time. its in the running on my list at worst game ever.
