Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
Mario is BACK! This time the gameplay is tighter, the environments are bigger, and the adventure is grand. The third and best installment of the 3D Super Mario Bros. franchise was the game that I was dying to play this holiday season and one of the many reasons that Iíll be picking up a Wii after the Xmas holidays. Whatever faults you might have had with Super Mario Sunshine, Galaxy completely redeems. It is the most straightforward Mario Bros. game since the golden days of Super Mario 64.
In my opinion, there is no better example of video gaming than playing a Mario game. When I played Galaxy for the first time, it was almost like I had stepped into a time warp and was 7 years old all over again. The Mario franchise helped Nintendo become the household name that it is, and this newest release guarantees that Miyamoto and Co. arenít going anywhere anytime soon.
That does it for another edition of A Weird Kid's Top 10. I hope you all enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together. As always, let me know if you have a particular top 10 that you'd like to see, and I'd be happy to oblige. And for all of you that have submitted ideas, I promise I'll eventually get around to yours. Thanks for reading!!!
