Apparently, yes. I'm open to discussion for the latter, though. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Yes. The writing could be better, but having a convenient all-in-one listing of the genres the Mario series has taken, along with a description how it twists/play straight genre tropes, is interesting and informative. imo the relative dearth and recent culling of articles relating to the gaem (as opposed to in-universe and out-of-universe) subjects of the Mario franchise is unfortunate. --Glowsquid (talk) 22:08, 19 December 2014 (EST)

Right now, maybe it's just me, the page is pretty useless. I don't see how this specifically relates to the Mario series since "genre" is such an extremely broad subject, and considering that other forms of media have their own genres (and Mario has nonvideo game media, just not on a as grand scale). Maybe I like gutting generic things I personally find useless, lmao. I imagine, nowadays, that if this page was theoretically not here yet, it wouldn't be created ever. As for the culling of the Mario pages, eh, we still have platform, lava, spikes, Game Over, Glitch, Continue... maybe Genre can be rewritten to serve as much purpose as "Glitch". But much like "player", "genre" is even more generic, and unlike "Glitch", still pretty useless (in its current state, at the very least). Mario Green.png It's me, Mario!
