Super Mario 64 on the N64 was truly a landmark title. It really set the bar for 3D platformers so high that it was difficult for competitors and even Nintendo to follow up with a game that was even better. Super Mario Sunshine on the GameCube was impressive but it's still lacked some of the magic of it's predecessor. Then the Wii came along with it's unique controller and promise of great Nintendo franchises. When I first saw early screenshots and videos of Super Mario Galaxy, I was intrigued by the orb-like environments. However, it's when I first bought the game and started playing it that I could truly appreciate what Nintendo managed to do with 3D platforming. In a way, they revolutionized and reinvigorated the genre with their out of the box thinking. Super Mario Galaxy, especially the first one remains one of my personal favorites to this very day. I consider it a unique and amazing platformer that is heads and shoulders above it's peers. What are your thought on this?
