Do we really need yet another Mario?

Roger Sandbakk: I know this sounds weird, but do we really need yet another Mario? Do we really need another 'Legend Of Link But It Sells More If We Have A Woman In The Title So Let's Name It After Zelda' game? Don't get me wrong, I do love Mario and Zelda - the problem is I had a lot of fun with them years ago, so how come we keep getting the same games over and over?

Mario will always be here to save the industry and push the industry in the right direction.

Mario is responsible for many innovations used in gaming today. Innovations that now span all consoles and genres. May it be 2D 3D or 120 frames per second in 4D. Mario will always be around to show developers how to do things the proper way.

Mario 64 alone is one of the, if not the most influential gaming Nintendo exclusive experiences of our time.

Rated E For Everyone

I'd love to see my buddy Mario again! :)

As long as they innovate like they did with the Galaxy games then yes.

People can say Mario is over-played all they want, but the reality is that since Mario 64, the games have always been so different compared to the previous game. Sunshine was different than Mario 64, and Galaxy was a lot different than Sunshine.

(Yes, SMG2 was essentially the same thing.......because it was a direct sequel lol)

And even Mario 3D Land was something we haven't seen before from a Mario game.

I can't imagine what a Mario game on the Wii U will be like.

I think you're right on the money with each 3D Mario experience being new and unique (save for the one direct sequel they did for Galaxy). It's like saying that the early 2D Mario games are exactly alike despite only sharing some basic game functionality and aesthetic design.

It's fine to have an opinion, but Nintendo's software sales contradicts that theory (consumers want another Mario).
