Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Brilliant article on why Mario Galaxy is game of the generation

Tagged games:

Persona 5 hasn't been released yet so I'd say it's the provisional game of the generation.

Platformer perfection. It got played for around 80 hours on my console. Mario, then Luigi, then playing more just for the sheer fun of it.

I actually still have Galaxy 2 sitting on my shelf. I am saving it to be one of the last games I play on the Wii before moving on. It is going to be glorious.

Great article, lots of very good points presented.

As much as I loved the Uncharted series I'd have to give the edge to the Galaxy games as far as platformers go. Masterpieces, I say.

Good points in the article, I think Galaxy 1 and 2 were the best games of the generation because of the overall fun I had and still have with them. Great controls, great level design, and really varied objectives. I think the second one is the best of them though, because the first had many objectives that I found boring such as the Purple comets.

Still the first one made the biggest impact on me, and probably all of us. I am replaying them right now actually, I started a new game on Galaxy 1 about a week ago and finished it completely after a week. Then I began Galaxy 2 yesterday, and so far I have 68 stars.

I was a little bored with some stars on the first, especially when I had to replay them as Luigi. Galaxy 2 doesn't have that problem, but again, the first one had the biggest impact. So I think it deserves the title of best game of the generation more.


It was magic. I will love it forever :)
