Ok so as of now, five of these types of games exist. The first one made us all happy as we wanted a new 2D mario game in years ever since Super Mario World got released. But then it started going downhill as soon as New Super Mario Bros 2 showed up. There's nothing particularly wrong with the game but it just has a feature that is pointless which is collecting coins. I mean sure, I love coins and all but this game makes them have no meaning to them. I haven't played the one on the Wii U but I heard that it just plays safe and does nothing new to the table. Then the fifth one for those of you wondering is Super Mario Run and even though It doesn't have new slapped to it, it still feels like another New Super Mario Bros game because it simply reuses the art assets from those games. Look, I have no problem with their existence infact I'm simply happy that they exist as Super Mario games are my most favorite ones. My main issue with them is that they do so little to add something new to them. The previous 2D ones even if they didn't do much still felt new simply because they all had different visuals unlike this series which doesn't do that even. I'd like to hear what are you're thoughts about the New Super Mario Bros series in general and where it just stands.
