Game: Super Mario Galaxy
Start Date: June 13th, 2016
With every Nintendo platform having a very early Mario title, it’s no surprise that within one year of the Wii’s release, Super Mario Galaxy graced our presences with a game that was….quite literally…out of this world! Taking a 3D Mario platformer like Super Mario 64 or Super Mario Sunshine and turning it into a spherical 3D platformer seemed kinda odd at first, but it turns out it was a very smooth transition considering. Now we have one of the greatest Mario games of all time, if not just one of the greatest games of all time.
I think it’s no secret I love Super Mario Galaxy, considering I love many Mario games in general, and truth be told, I was heavily considering this game for a very long time. But as usual, the timing never really felt right, especially considering at the time I hadn’t done Super Mario 64 or Sunshine yet. However, I wanted to make sure Galaxy was done this year in 2016. And sure enough, I was able to make it work.
