SM64 is to the 3D series as SMB1 is to the 2D
I think the 2D equivalent to SM64 in that sense is either SMB3 or SMW depending on who you ask. Maybe both.See, I agree with that statement but I also feel like SMB hasn't aged in the way SM64 has.
Certainly, the later 2D Mario games have surpassed what SMB has done, but whenever I go back and play SMB, I don't have that feeling of like 'This aspect of the game is frustrating and dated nowadays'.
Contrast to Super Mario 64 where, while I still think Mario's controls are top notch even all these years later, my enjoyment of the N64 original is marred by 'Why is the goddamn camera so awful please stop this is the worst part of the game'.
I mean I was there once, and the only reason I disliked "music with lyrics" is that it seemed to be the popular thing to like while instrumentals get overlooked, but I found out music with lyrics is just as good as instrumentals if you know what you're looking for.I just don't like music with lyrics.
honestly yeah! that's why I love this cover, it gives much needed oomphBreak Free (Lead the Way) I generally find an underwhelming song, it really sounds like the main singer is singing it in her sleep. It needs far more energy for it to work.
The Cheese Land music in MK8 is pretty good but I'm really glad they put Sky Garden in DS. It's easily one of my favorite songs on that soundtrack and I hope they don't fuck it up and turn it into a generic jazz remix. I've never actually played Super Circuit but I have a lot of nostalgia for Sky Garden.My main gripe is against the GBA tracks in Mario Kart 8 in this regard. Especially the almost unrecognizable circuit theme. Like, I can't tell what song it is until like 20 seconds in.
