The Year of Luigi? The Twin No One Seems to Care About.- The Geek Link

The Geek Link writes- Luigi Mario, Mario Mario’s brother, commonly know as one of the Mario Brothers, has nothing but been one of the best sidekicks video gaming has ever encounter. Always by his twin brothers side, Luigi has never complain or tried to take the light away from his twin brother. Even when Yoshi, yet another green character who aids Mario through his adventures, took the center stage, becoming most peoples favorite, Luigi never complained. (3DS, Luigi's Mansion, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Mario Golf World Tour, New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo, Wii U)

Luigi should be the villain in the upcoming 3D Mario. They shouldn't reveal it's him until the end. That would've made a much greater ending to Super Mario Sunshine. It's ending was really lame in fact. Ooh, that villain turned out to be ANOTHER villain! I'm shocked!

If anyone at Nintendo is reading this, please please take my idea. You don't have to pay me. In fact, I'll pay you. You don't even have to give me credit.

So basically people who were getting tired of Mario are going to get tired of Luigi as well. Strange move from Nintendo who, I think, should focus on bringing new things instead of recycling old stuffs.

you mean like bayonetta 2, the wonderful 101, and the new monolith x game? yeah no recycling there huh champ? and look at microsoft and sony thank goodness they do not recycle, like god of war 3, halo 4, final fantasy 15, gta 5, metal gera solid 3, resident evil 5 and six yeah, ps3 and 360 don't make or carry recycled games, either look at the tons of new ips they have!!! your move champ!!! and for those who really matter, the new luigi u game, dlc,82 all new levels, is the one i am excited about, all dlc should be this good!!!

So you list a sequel in the reasons they aren't recycling and the reasons everyone else is is due to sequels. Something doesn't add up. Also none of your examples relate to the Mario franchises which is what the comment and the article were referring to.

On top of that, if we are talking Mario games, there is a lot of over lap there. Between re-releases and sequels they beat a dead horse over and over. There are some innovations to the series, Galaxy is a good example. But overall there is just to much repetition.

@wiium 64 Did I say anything about Sony and Microsoft ? Jeez... I was talking about Nintendo and the Mario franchise, just like the article does. I expressed my opinion on the matter, no need to start a fight here.

(Sorry I missed the "reply" button.)

hey smiley, bayonetta 2, is brand new to wii u, the post said nintendo games recycled, and all consoles do the repetitiveness, jus ask COD, just making a logical point, that's all.

It may be new to the system, but it is far from being new. It is a sequel just the same as the rest you listed with the only difference being it is on a new console. What Karmic Demon was trying to get at is that the franchise is getting stale from the repetitiveness of releasing the same games over and again. They haven't veered away from the original formula at all. They just change settings and add/remove power ups.

The title doesn't say it all. The dude wrote to get clicks. If no one likes Luigi why is Dark moon one of the most anticipated games from Nintendo. There can only be one star and thats Mario(Zelda/link close) just like halo on 360 and Drake at sony
smikey1123  +   961d ago
It was more about Nintendo not giving him the attention he deserves. Yes, Luigi's Mansion is a highly anticipated game, but if you had read the article you would see that they should have done more for this supposed "year of Luigi". That was the point of the article, not click bait.
