I think Super Paper Mario is an excellent game. It had just about all the qualities that makes a game great in the first place- the graphics, sound/music, storyline, and most importantly, the gameplay. I thought it was pretty neat how they combined the gameplay of the classic NES (and SNES) games with RPG elements from the previous Paper Mario titles. Upon browsing through numerous comments regarding the game on Youtube (as well as the "Top 5 Wii Games" topic), I've noticed that quite a few people seem to hate it. I, on the other hand, don't understand the hate for it at all. I hear numerous complaints about it, where people say that it sucks, simply because of the fact that it wasn't entirely an RPG like the other two. Seriously, WTF? If you ask me, I'd say that's a VERY stupid reason to hate the game. Quite frankly, I don't see how it's even possible to be a Mario fan (whether it's of the platformers, RPGs, or both), and hate this game. I have yet to see anyone come up with a solid argument as to why Super Paper Mario sucks. But hey, everyone's entitled to their own opinion, I guess.
