Option 4 for me. I like hearing old songs, even as call-backs and not necessarily at the same level as that's close to Option 2 (like one of Bowser's themes from Mario and Luigi: Dream Team being similar to the Giant Battle theme from Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story was something I liked), but I don't like when developers use older themes almost entirely or even a good deal of the time as an excuse for unoriginality and not trying something new.

Really depends for me. Some classic songs really dont get the attention they deserve, so it just kinda hits me like a truck whenever they remix it or something

i do also like getting new motifs, like, bowsers leitmotif in origami king is great, it feels like its royal and all that yet it fits bowser, really hope they give the characters we all know and love leitmotifs like that more often

Late but: Option 1, but it depends on which songs. I wish Nintendo would arrange more of their lesser known but well-loved songs, like Dire Dire Docks (which I'm surprised hasn't happened yet) or Super Mario Land's music, instead of the ground theme, underground theme etc. for the 100th+ time.

Like the Kirby series. Even with some great new songs, the amount of musical nods in that series is insane.

Nintendo often uses sprites from Super Mario Bros. in merchandise and promotional material. Do you like these sprites being used?
  • Yes, I like seeing these sprites being used.
  • I like seeing old sprites being used, but would prefer to see them from games besides Super Mario Bros.
  • I like seeing these sprites occasionally but would prefer them to be used less frequently.
  • No, I would prefer Nintendo to stick their modern artstyle and imagery.
  • I have no opinion on this subject.

8 bit mario is ugly and stupid so number 4 would be my pick

Option 2 for me, the SMB sprites at this point feel overused and really cliche, and honestly they were never really that great if you ask me. Pretty much all of the subsequent platformers with sprites (I'd say the original Super Mario Land is the only exception here) did it better in my opinion. Personally I'd like to see SMB3 get some love.

Option 2, I agree with this

I ended up voting Option 5 as the closest to how I felt as my answer would have been none of the first four, but that I like seeing sprites from Super Mario Bros. sometimes, but would also like to see sprites from newer games, too. An interesting fact is that my opinion here was actually an option being considered but was ultimately rejected by Ray Trace as that was a point of strong disagreement between us.
