King Koopa was a better name than Bowser. The later sounds like a dog name.

What did you think this was all about? Pumpkins!?

The audience in Thousand-Year Door would've been better if they were left to just a simple comedic framing aesthetic and not something that actually affected the gameplay. This includes leaving out times where the villain kills some of them (or at least not giving the villain a healing effect and just shows off how evil the villain is).

The camera in Sunshine is actually really good. You can control it freely with the right stick and recenter it behind you by pressing ZL (At least in the Switch version, idk what it is on GameCube). With the exception of that one Ferris Wheel level, I had no problems with it. I'd argue that the camera in 64 and Galaxy are way worse.

The Yoshies in Sunshine don’t add anything to the game. Which is sad for me to say being Yoshinite.

Depending on my mood I sometimes think people care about story in Mario way too much. And thats including myself.

That's the wrong attitude to have.

The Fun Friends are ashamed of you. Go take the Blue Exit Pipe and go to Sing Song World to learn about the plight of the Itsy Bitsy Spider.

They say it's still trying to climb that water spout to this very day.

Blue Shell was better than the Penguin Suit
I rember when the blue shell debuted in MK64. I thought it was a epic item. What made it better then is how rare it was.

I feel I'm the only person to call that goddamn thing by its official name. Spiny Shell.
I call it the Blue Shell because Spiny is already a shell/ character thrown by Lakitu:

Blue shell is the shell in Super Mario World, the shell that freezes people in Mario Strikers, and it's the wearable item. So, it's not the most precise name for it either
How about Spiny Blue Shell or SBS for short?

didn't nintendo call it a blue shell in one of the updates for MK8D? I think it's a bit asinine to call it the Spiny Shell when no-one calls it that, or will understand what you're talking about.

I'm a complete Mario nerd so Blue Shell gets me mixed up with all other blue shells in the series while Spiny Shell is far more specific. I never called it the blue shell in my entire time playing Mario Kart.

How about, "The Blue Spiny Shell that no longer belongs to the Koopa Troopa that once wore it".
