IGN - Which era of Mario games comes out on top?
Funny how Mario "a so called Italian" goes from having brown skin and dark eyes to milky white skin and blue eyes....diffidently not how most Italians are depicted!
There are a lot of white Italians in Italy but I get what you mean. Maybe they lightened his skin tone to appeal more to the western audience.
I'm just stating the obvious! There are a lot of games where dark skin, dark eyed people are seen as evil or malevolent "Except if your Kratos or live in Japan" What's scary is the fact that these games that are geared towards children may make them think having Dark skin is bad or people of Dark Skin are dangerous! This could bread indifference and Racism! By the way I prefer 2D Mario.
Who cares? He is also supposed to be a plumber, even though we never see him act like one.
Super Mario: Plumber Simulator 2014 someone should make that happen. have mario plug Toad's smelly toilet now that's a game i'd pay for! ( i'm just joking, the true gamer spends their money on Goat Simulator )
I preferred the original 2D Mario's more for their time (still amazing today) but for today ... I prefer 3D Marios. Today's 2D Marios are still great but built more as a retro game and not to truly innovate the franchise. Not saying they are cheap but it's clear their intention is more to rekindled nostalgia and not really to bring something new other than multiplayer. Again ... this is not a bad thing and judging from the sales of the "NEW" Mario Bros series ... clearly Nintendo did the right call. With that said 3D Marios are given true AAA quality, attention and innovates so I prefer 3D Marios.
personally i like both equally.
2D Mario, I gave up on Mario after playing a few hours of Mario 64 and didn't came back until New Super Mario Bros on the DS.... The only 3D Mario I like is 3D Land (haven't played 3D world cuz don't have a Wii U) because it plays and feel like a 2D mario. However even 3D land is not as good as 2D mario's because perception of depth issues constantly get you screwed (unless you use 3D but I hate having to hold the 3DS in the same position to keep the effect)... Actually is not just Mario, platformers as a genre simply work much better on 2D
