Game Opinions

NES

Game Notes Rating
Donkey Kong NES Cover.png

Donkey Kong

The game is enjoyable to play in short bursts. There's not much else to say about it. Good
Donkey Kong Jr. NES Cover.png

Donkey Kong Jr.

While I do enjoy this game, it's a lot more difficult than its predecessor. I don't like it as much, but it's still fun. Good
Mario Bros. NES Cover.png

Mario Bros.

This game is fine. It's really hard, though. Decent
Dk jr math box.jpg

Donkey Kong Jr. Math

Have you ever wanted to play a video game solely about doing math? Neither have I, but clearly Nintendo thought somebody did. When I play Donkey Kong Jr., I want to be pushing keys and knocking down fruit, not doing math. Still, this game isn't that bad. It's good for a quick laugh. Decent
SMB Boxart.png

Super Mario Bros.

When you put it into perspective, it's a good game for its time, but now it's just decent. Not bad at all, but just kind of underwhelming. Decent
SMB2 Boxart.png

Super Mario Bros. 2

Maybe it's just me, but I consider this to be the best of the original NES trilogy. It's just so unique, and it's a lot of fun to play. Good
SMB3 Boxart.png

Super Mario Bros. 3

I do not like this game. The level design is horrid and unfair. It makes me feel like I'm playing the Super Expert 100 Mario Challenge! There is no way to save, go back to previous worlds, or replay levels. However, I can give this game credit for introducing some fan-favorite characters, like Dry Bones, Thwomps, Boos, Chain Chomps, and the Koopalings. Bad
Nes Box - Yoshi.png

Yoshi

I don't really get this game. What am I supposed to be doing? Bad
Nes Box - Yoshi's Cookie.png

Yoshi's Cookie

This game is mediocre. It's a little boring. While I don't mind it, it's not something I'd go out of my way to play. Decent

SNES

Game Notes Rating
Super Mario World Box.png

Super Mario World

No, not the cartoon series. The SNES game. I really like this game. It improved on SMB3 in such a big way with the Cape Feather, Yoshi, hidden exits, an easy-to-traverse overworld, and challenging bonus levels. Great
MarioPaintBox.jpg

Mario Paint

At first, I thought "This game looks so stupid! Why would you ever want to play a MS Paint clone with Mario?" Then I decided to play it, expecting to quit after a few minutes. What really surprised me was this: the game is actually good. It's great stress relief. Try it some time. Good
Boxart dkc front.png

Donkey Kong Country

This game is okay. There are some good parts and some bad parts. I prefer its sequel. Decent
Samegame.png

Undake30 Same Game

This game is weird. It doesn't seem to have much value to it. There's just one singular puzzle mode, which is rather lackluster. I don't entirely hate it, though. It just kind of confuses me that it exists. Decent
SMW2.jpg

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

I don't play this game a lot, but I end up having fun when I do. I'd recommend it. Good
DKC2.jpg

Donkey Kong Country 2

I like this game a lot. Diddy and Dixie are really fun characters to play as. The game never gets boring, and it stays very fun and fast-paced throughout. My favorite part has got to be the music. Great

Game Boy

Mario's Picross

I didn't even know what Picross was until I played Mario's Picross. I got it so I could get a picture of the game over screen for the gallery of the Game Over page, but then I played more of it. And you know what? It's actually fun. Good
Donkey Kong Land 2 Box Art.jpg

Donkey Kong Land 2

Compared to the original, this one is kind of "eh." The music is worse, the graphics are worse, it's pretty much a downgrade. Why would you ever buy this if you have a SNES? Decent

DOS

Mario's Game Gallery

Like Mario Paint, I thought this game would be stupid at first, but I actually ended up enjoying it. Good

Nintendo 64

Game Notes Rating
Super Mario 64 Boxart.png

Super Mario 64

A genuinely great game. Lots of fun to be had here. Great
Papermario.PNG

Paper Mario

I prefer PM64 over TTYD. 64 has memorable locations, lots of partners, great bosses, an outstanding soundtrack, and is just an overall great game. I wasn't sure if I would like it at first, but I did. Great

Game Boy Color

Game Notes Rating
Wario Land 2 GBC NA cover.jpg

Wario Land II

While I haven't played this game recently, I do remember liking it. All the different paths were an appealing idea, and the transformations were fun to use. Good
Warioland3.jpg

Wario Land 3

Honestly, I can't tell which Wario Land game is the best. I haven't completed this one yet. Good

Game Boy Advance

Game Notes Rating
Box NA - Wario Land 4.png

Wario Land 4

Eh, I don't think I like this one as much as II and 3. Still not a bad game, though. Decent
Super Mario Advance 3 Box Art.jpg

Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3

I only got this game because the Wii U eShop didn't have the original SNES version. And boy, did I not like this. I never completed the first world. Everything in this game is just worse; like DKL2, why would you even buy this if you have a SNES? Bad
Wario-ware-inc-mega-microgamesUSA.jpg

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!

It's the first WarioWare game, but it's one of the weaker ones. It suffers from quite a bit of trial-and-error gameplay. Sometimes, like in Mix & Match and Slick Wheelie, I have no idea what I'm supposed to do the first time I play it. However, there are only a few bad microgames in the over 200. The bonuses are pretty fun. Orbulon's stage is probably my favorite in this game. Good
Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga Box NA.png

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

I really like this game. It's a great start to the Mario & Luigi series. It's the most creative, there are lots of unique enemies, the bosses are fantastic, and the entire game is really fun. There are some flaws, like a few annoying characters (I'm looking at you, Starshade Bros.), annoying tutorials, and the entire Oho Ocean Seabed segment, but it's still a great game. If you want to play a Mario & Luigi game, you can't go wrong with this one. Great
DKC3 GBA cover art.jpg

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!

This game is pretty great. I like Kiddy Kong and don't find him annoying, the animals are fun to play as, there are lots of secrets, and the new overworld map is fun to explore. While I don't think it's as good as DKC2, it's pretty close. Great
DKKoS cover art.jpg

DK: King of Swing

What even is this game? The wonky controls were kind of fun at first, but then I realized, "Wait, I have to play the entire game like this!" I quit after the first world, and I don't plan to come back to it anytime soon. On the plus side, I do like the sprites and art style. Decent

GameCube

Game Notes Rating
SSBM cover art.jpg

Super Smash Bros. Melee

The genuine best Smash game. I started with Brawl and find it hard to return. I play without items, and I only do tournament-legal maps. It is now very hard for me to play any Smash game except Melee. Great
Box NA - Super Mario Sunshine.png

Super Mario Sunshine

Something about this game is just... bleh. I know it's divisive, and I'm leaning towards the "bad game" side. I don't find it very fun, the controls are weird, and Mario's moveset is too small. I haven't bothered to play much of this. Bad
PMTTYD.jpg

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

I'm not a big fan of this game, honestly. The character designs are the ugliest out of all Paper Mario games, the amount of RNG in battles gets frustrating, and I can't think of many chapters I actually liked. Let's do a chapter-by-chapter recap:
  • Prologue: Boring.
  • Chapter 1: Fine. I don't like it, but I don't hate it either.
  • Chapter 2: Boring, uninteresting level design, and repetitive music.
  • Chapter 3: Fun for the first half. The story was really stupid and I didn't care for it.
  • Chapter 4: Repetitive, bad music, and lame enemies.
  • Chapter 5: What is it with this game and backtracking? This is just getting silly! Pirate's Grotto was a decent area, at least.
  • Chapter 6: There are no battles except for the final boss and a few in Riverside Station. I'm just messing around on some train the entire time.
  • Chapter 7: Admittedly, this one was kind of fun. Well, the second half, anyways. Fahr Outpost and the moon were pretty boring.
  • Chapter 8: I can barely even remember this one. It was okay.

Yeah, I don't get the praise for this game.

Bad

Nintendo DS

Sm64ds.jpg

Super Mario 64 DS

Not a big fan of this one. Obviously, there's the bad controls, but the constant character-switching didn't do much for me. Decent
WWDS.jpg

WarioWare: Touched!

This game is good. Not my favorite WarioWare, but it's still good. Good
MarioLuigiPartnersTimeBox.jpg

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

The best Mario & Luigi game on the DS. Still not the best of the entire series, however. I'd rank it second-worst. Although, it's not exactly a bad game. Good
New Super Mario Bros box.png

New Super Mario Bros.

This game is pretty mediocre. I played it once, got all the Star Coins, and can't really remember anything else about it. Decent
Bowsersinsidestorycover.jpg

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

Oh, no. Not this game. This game is terrible. It is not fun in the slightest. The entire game is gross, tedious, easy, and just plain stupid. You know how I said Partners in Time was the second-worst? This is the worst. Bad
USWarioDIY.png

WarioWare: D.I.Y.

The game-making section of this game doesn't feel very developed. It's overly complicated and not much fun to use. I don't really care for the records or comics, either. The microgames are incredibly basic, even by WarioWare standards. Still, it's a good game. I like the Job Center missions, the actually entertaining tutorials, and Body Rock. Good

Wii

Game Notes Rating
SuperPaperMarioBoxart.jpg

Super Paper Mario

This is my absolute favorite Paper Mario game. The gameplay is incredibly fun, there are lots of hidden secrets, there's a post-game, the bosses are great, and I love the soundtrack. I know this is a controversial opinion, but I find it very nice to stomp an enemy and not enter a long battle. Great
SmG.jpg

Super Mario Galaxy

I despise this game. It makes me feel really stupid merely by playing it. I get no enjoyment out of this game at all. It's super boring. Heck, even the soundtrack puts me to sleep! This is one of the only Mario games I haven't bothered to 100% complete. You know what? I'm going to dedicate an entirely new rating just for this game. It's that bad. Terrible
SSBB Cover.jpeg

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

I used to like this game before I realized how much better Melee was. This game is too slow-paced and floaty for my tastes. Even when I was a super big fan of Brawl, I still despised the Subspace Emissary. I found it incredibly boring and not fun at all. Bad
Mariobox-noscale.jpg

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

This was the first Wii game — and also the first Mario game — I've ever played. Did I have fun with it? Yeah, I guess. I haven't played this game in years, but I do want to play it again. I remember it being a good game, though. Good
WWDIYS WiiWare.jpg

WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase

Technically, this is WiiWare, but I think it's close enough to fit in my Wii section. So how is this successor to D.I.Y.? Well, for one, it removes the main thing about D.I.Y.; the actual D.I.Y. portion. But the word "showcase" in the title already implies that. This game is made up of two good stages and two mediocre stages. I personally think the pre-made comics in this one are better than the ones in D.I.Y., too. Eh, the game is fine enough, but if you want to try WarioWare, don't start with this game. Decent
Smg2boxart.png

Super Mario Galaxy 2

I don't dislike this game as much as Galaxy 1. Don't get me wrong, it's still a bad game, but at least there are brief bits of enjoyment in it. Let me count: the Mario Squared Galaxy was creative, and I liked the Sea Slide Galaxy, and... yeah, that's really it. The bad galaxies greatly outnumber the good ones. Bad
MP9Boxart.jpg

Mario Party 9

This was the first Mario Party game I've ever played. I just assumed that every game took place in a singular vehicle. But you know what? I actually like it. I'm actually compelled to care about other players' turns to think about how it will impact me later. It feels like everybody's working together as a team, but they're also trying to sabotage each other at the same time, which makes for some interesting gameplay. Good

Nintendo 3DS

Game Notes Rating
SM3DL UScover.png

Super Mario 3D Land

A little bland, but still good. Is this better than 3D World? I'm not entirely sure. If you want Mario on the 3DS, this game isn't a bad choice. Good
Box NA - Mario & Luigi Dream Team.png

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

I don't get the hate for this game. People always say, "oh, the tutorials stink!" Bowser's Inside Story had way more tutorials than this one. The dream world is a much more interesting and actually fun version of Bowser's body. Overall, this game is pretty great. Great
Mario & Luigi - Paper Jam - NOA Boxart.png

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam

I don't get the hate for this game, either. The lack of original characters didn't bother me very much, and all the paper additions were fun. The Papercraft Battles were about as much fun as eating a cactus, but at least they're over fast. I consider this weaker than Dream Team, but I still really like it. Great
WarioWare Gold NA cover.png

WarioWare Gold

A definite contender for my top 10 games of all time. The voice acting is a lot of fun to listen to, the minigames and records were great rewards, the microgames are still awesome, the challenge modes are creative, and it's overall an incredibly fun experience. It's so easy to pick up and play for a little bit. All the controls, even the microphone and the gyroscope, work perfectly and never feel unresponsive. If you want to play WarioWare, please try out this one. Great

Wii U

Game Notes Rating
Nintendoland boxcover.png

Nintendo Land

Uh, it's fine, I guess. It's a mix of good and bad minigames. The good outweighs the bad, but it's still not something you should spend 60 dollars on. Decent
Box NA - Super Mario 3D World.png

Super Mario 3D World

This game is good until World Mushroom. It kind of feels like they ran out of ideas at that point. None of the rehashed "remixed" levels, besides Piranha Creeper Creek After Dark, provide much of a challenge. And the fake replayability? I only got three out of five runs done before I got so burned out by the game that I stopped playing it for years! At least I had fun with the game my first time through. Good
NES Remix Pack cover art.png

NES Remix Pack

No real opinion on this game. At first, I thought it was actual NES games and levels, but turns out it's just tiny segments. I was disappointed at first, but then I learned to appreciate it for what it was. Decent
Super Mario Maker Wii U NA Boxart.jpg

Super Mario Maker

Lunar Magic is better. Good

Trivia and Other Opinions

  • Enguarde is my favorite Animal Friend. Squawks is my least favorite.
  • I think Fawful was much better as a supporting character, like in Superstar Saga and Partners in Time, than as a full-fledged villain.
  • Fuzzies are my least favorite recurring enemy. My favorite is a tie between Thwomps and Chain Chomps.
  • I am not a fan of Nintendo's mindset of "no checkpoints + recycled challenge = hard level." This is the reason why I find The Perfect Run to be incredibly stupid. I have already went through this exact same level layout once, and forcing me to do it perfectly isn't fun. It's just annoying because I've already done this before and they're desperate to pad out the game with filler challenges.
  • Prankster Comets were a fun idea handled terribly. Before you complete them, they forbid you from playing any of the galaxy's other missions, which I really don't like.
  • Ashley's Theme is the worst WarioWare song with lyrics. Four Seasons is a runner-up.
  • I have reached the maximum possible score on the Cannonball Chuck Attackathon mode.
  • While I have never played Sticker Star or Color Splash, I think they look fun. I plan on playing them someday.
  • The "Super Mario Facts" Twitter account once tweeted out something I wrote.
