Gabe Newell Says Super Mario 64 is His Favorite Non-Valve Game

Gabe Newell has revealed that his favorite non-Valve game is Super Mario 64. Newell, who’s known as the co-founder and managing director of Valve, previously expressed his fondness for the Nintendo 64 classic as well as its director and producer – Shigeru Miyamoto. Super Mario 64 was originally released in 1996 and a remake called Super Mario 64 DS hit the Nintendo DS in 2004. (Gabe Newell, Industry, Super Mario 64, Wii)

Mario 64 is probably my favorite game of all time.

It's still better than 90% of games released since 1996.

Does this mean that he loves certain Valve games more?

Gabe once said
"A product that is late, is late for a little while, but a product that sucks, will suck forever"
So please, shut up yourself and take your ignorance with you

He never said that and the actual quot is "A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever" and Shiguru Myiamoto said it. Than people bring up Duke Nukem Forever but that game was bad because it always changed develpers and Gearbox probably worked on it for about a year and the game didnt have constant develepmemt time.

Watch the whole video, for the quote

And there are a few examples of great games that took long to develop
Like Alan Wake or LA Noire

Mario64 is one of the top 5 games of all time. No surprise there. Still play mine from time to time.

I've never played it. I never had 64 but I suppose I could play it on DS or something but now it looks pretty bland

Super Mario 64 is amazing compared to the "3D Land/World" games that have came out recently. A game similar to Spyro, Banjo Kazooie, it was pretty awesome. Never beat it though, it was way too hard for me as a kid in the later levels.

Ive gotten several people over the past couple of years to try it and they all loved it. Theres no way for you to really understand this without playing it, but it is so much fun just to jump around in that game. The controls are just awesome. If you have never played it you really are missing out, the game is timeless.

I tried it once and everything was so old looking. Like flat and angular. Maybe I'll give it another chance
