You know, I'm starting to think I should have worded that one post I made a bit differently...

Please, Yoshi x Birdo sinks.

Sonic games are, in general, better than Mario ones.

Except the Galaxy games and Odyssey. Those cannot be beaten in the realm of 3D platformers by anything other than themselves.

64, Sunshine, and 3D World are better than both Odyssey and Galaxy 1 (but not Galaxy 2).

You are wrong because I hate Galaxy 2 and my seniority in this forum trumps any filthy lowlife and incorrect opinion that only an absurdly incorrect Yoshi fan can come up with.

Saying 3D World is good is fine (but wrong), it's just saying that it's better then Odyssey is a sin.

In fact saying that any 3D Mario game, except for maybe Galaxy, is better then Odyssey is just wrong.

You only hate Galaxy 2 because you played Galaxy 1 first, and because it has Yoshi in it with a major role.  Don't deny it.

Galaxy 2 > Sunshine > 64 (DS) > 3D World > Odyssey > Galaxy 1 > 3D Land

Does that mean I just committed four serious, unforgivable sins?

lol yoshi doesn't even remotely play a "major role" in galaxy 2. it's like claiming squitter the spider is a major character in that one donkey kong country game. he's like only in 20% of the game, but they had to prop yoshi as the game's selling point because it did little else to stand on its own.

also 3d world is my favorite 3d mario game, next to super mario 64 ds. 3d world is the only 3d mario game where i don't have touch mario at all.

Galaxy 1 was first, and that's a big advantage, it had the benefit of being novel at the time. Galaxy 2 sucks not only for Yoshi (and Yoshi has far from a major role; he's a gimmick in that game with a terrible voice, but he's not a super big reason I hate Galaxy 2), but for also being a major rehash of the first game that punches you in the teeth with ideas ripped off straight from the first game and retaining several flaws while also not building on potential the first game had. The first game also had more of an "atmosphere", if you can call it that, as it feels more "spacey" overall than Galaxy 2, which looks more set in the sky (despite having some space levels). Both Galaxies had potential to be expanded on, and Galaxy 1 has the flaws of being railroads, also for being an unfocused mess in some parts (cough, powerups, half-baked level ideas), and setpiece traveling on a lot of small, disjointed, and boring planetoids, and Galaxy 2 had the perfect opportunity to give us more of this "MARIO IS IN SPACE!!", but they went with more levels set in sky voids, a lot of recycled *bleep*, and a lot of 2.5d levels and an inferior soundtrack. Co-Star Luma was neat, though. I do recall Galaxy 2 had one improvement, according to a video that criticized both games, but I think I forgot at this point, maybe it had a little more focus on what level structure they want, but still completely lost it overall IMO, in favor of making more money.

Galaxy 2 > Sunshine > 64 (DS) > 3D World > Odyssey > Galaxy 1 > 3D Land

Does that mean I just committed four serious, unforgivable sins?
You committed two because Galaxy 2 and Sunshine are strictly at the bottom of my list, and Sunshine would be in the bottom if I had to rate my list on gameplay/technical issues and ignoring personal enjoyment.

Odyssey > 64(DS) > 3D World > Galaxy > 3D Land > Sunshine > Galaxy 2

The only thing Galaxy 2 has over 1 is the Co-Star Luma.

Nothing else.

Even the jingles when you get the stars I like way better in the first one.

Oh yeah, the star get jingle in Galaxy 2, I remember for being such a disappointing step down from the first one.

Again, Co-Star Luma is neat, but Cappy is ever better.

Like don't get me wrong, Galaxy 2 had some pretty neat levels... but a lot of clone ones.

And after playing the firt game you just don't see what is so impressive. I guess I also like the Comet medal system, but it evens out with the fact that now you actually have to bother collecting them.

I mean yeah Cappy is better than Co-Star Luma, but Cappy is the main gimmick, Co-Star is a Co-op mode.

there are aspects galaxy 2 i liked better...



look at the skybox!!! it's so beautiful! (and no, this is not an ironic post, i actually do love the world skyboxes from galaxy 2)

also this world doesn't even feature yoshi at all, adding major plus points to it

The Starship Mario is ugly, and no, it's not a symbol of Mario's endless vanity because Mario didn't design the dang thing and he even looked embarrassed at it when he saw it iirc.

Like even if they had invented some sort of stupid plot device to transport us to the Comet Observatory I'd take it gladly.
