There were a lot of crap games in there.

It's amazing how they keep recycling Mario and the public just keeps on eating it. Talk about staying power and it's a kids game.

PS360WII4869d ago

there have only been 8 main mario games more then some and less then others. Hardly milking

I don't think Mario Galaxy is as much for kids as it is kid-friendly. I remember being a teenager and being attracted to games that contain violence or speed but I'm now in my mid 20s and Mario Galaxy is definitely one of my favorite games right now. As a bonus, my kids would be able to play it if I had any.

okcomputer4869d ago

You must be really young to call mario a kid's game. Those of us who grew up with the series on nes and snes know how timeless/ageless the series is.

UltramanJ4869d ago

Only an immature child would write off Mario games as recycled kiddie games. I'm guessing a game has to have cursing, vulgarity, blood, and gore to be adult huh?

Tommie your crappy console is gonnabe crushed by the PS3.

MK_Red4869d ago

lol at Jenga's 2/10. I don't remember GI giving such a low score in a long time. Nintendo should really stop letting some publishers dumping their worst on Wii. Anubis 2, Balls of Fury, Those 2 games IGN reviewed yesterday and now Jenga.

ItsDubC4869d ago

Sony allowed plenty of garbage on the PS2 but look where it stands as a console.

MK_Red4869d ago

True but PS2 did not so many bad games in early it's days. Wii is hardly 1 year old and already has as many 1/10 games as PS2 had in 3-4 years.

ItsDubC4869d ago (Edited 4869d ago )

I agree that there are many horrible Wii games out there right now, and I think we can safely attribute the slew of early-on bad Wii games to devs trying to make a quick buck on the Wii craze which they had hugely underestimated along w/ the fact that the Wii introduced an unfamiliar control scheme. In addition, the PS2 did not sell as well as the Wii has in its infancy, and as a result did not attract as many developers early-on and did not have as many games in general its 1st year as the Wii has (correct me if I'm wrong).

I'm not so sure that the Wii having a lot of bad games early in its life has any significance, but we will see.

MK_Red4869d ago

Well siad and good points. I've nothing more to add but a bubble for :)

Mario Galaxy was great. A freind of mine who owns a wii and a ps3 says he's addicted to mario galaxy. If I got a wii I'd get soul caliber legends before anything though.
