I'm sorry but you don't know what you're talking about. You can't compare games across genres, it doesn't work. Oh, and guess what, a company called TEAM MEAT did release a game similiar to mario bros a few years back and it was praised almost unanimously, it was Super Meat Boy[/quote]
Your talking utter drivel. Every game site I look at has a "best game ever" section that compares "across genres"!!! Onm's best game ever was, surprise, Super Mario Bros!! Now everyone KNOWS its NOT even in the top 100! Apart from the obvious comparison to Mario 3 and World (which are both infinitely superior and every publication I read back in the day said that 2), any other acclaimed game, be it from ninety (Zelda, metroid,galaxy), ps3 (god of war, uncharted, dead space), Xbox (halo, gears of war) are also vastly superior. My point is this.... This isn't a review from 20 years ago. This is getting released NOW on a new platform. People are going to buy it based on this review, NOT through rose tinted specs. As an experiment I FORCED my Nephew and Niece to play this today, they absolutely hated it. By all means say its maybe the MOST INFLUENTIAL game, but by today's standards, which it should be reviewed by, it just doesn't measure up.
