The Mario Galaxy format – like the magic paintings of 64 – allows the developers to create virtually anything for Mario to play with. Even with its blurry-ass Wii visuals, it’s still a heck of a game and rising up my series ranking as I continue through it.
Mathew is a huge fan of Space, Strategy, and Shadowrun (Genesis version is #1). When it comes to games and films, he’d much rather experience a 10/10 classic from yesteryear than a 6/10 modern blandfest. He does feel we’re living in a gaming golden age with the power of indie developers at an all-time high, but wishes AAA publishers would take more risks. Mat believes it’s only a matter of time before the pendulum swings the other way and new ideas take their rightful place above reboots.
