They both make valid points but misguided.

If Mario Galaxy is innovative and different what difference does it matter if Mario's name is on it or not. Not on it or is.

I guess they could change the presentation a bit and call it by another name but then as soon as they did that some other person would say,
"This game is like Mario. Why didn't Nintendo just call it a Mario game instead trying to fake a new IP?"

I have seen it happen before.

Plus, you have to accept that the longer you live the less new concepts will be seen.

The comics, TV shows, or cartoons you read will recycle old ideas.

Characters that were growing wiser when you were a kid, will suddenly forget all of the wisdom they had gained.
Superman, X-Men, ThunderCats, Lara Croft, James Bond...

Until videogames become as diverse as Literature and Movies- They will always reset every 10-20 years for a new generation.

I opened the video and saw Tomb McShea ready to talk about nintendo. I gave him the benefit of the doubt but he didn't fail to go along my previous expectations of him.
