Andrew N from Negative World says: "The original Luigi’s Mansion was, I believe, the first game that I saw images of for the Nintendo Gamecube. Because this was during a dark age before I discovered video game websites, I didn’t really follow the game closely, and for one reason or another I assumed that it was basically just a Mario platformer, but starring Luigi in a mansion for some inexplicable reason. That seemed neat enough to me. Yet that it was not; Luigi’s Mansion was a different beast entirely. The game released to decent but not amazing reviews, I skipped over it at launch, and when I finally played it a half a year later, my impression of the game was that the reviews were pretty accurate. It was fun for what it was, but it did not stick with me in any lasting way."
