The lights are on
This isn't the gateway into the Mushroom Kingdom, but it's just about the next best thing. Enter a world where you can discuss all things Mario and never feel out of place for wearing red overalls.
I personally really dislike Super Mario 64. NOW, before you all start verbally thrashing me, hear me out. Firstly, while I do respect that it was very innovative and a great game in its time, I feel that it has aged very poorly, and the controls, camera, level design, and graphics are all frankly inferior to later entries in the series. And on the subject of level design, it seemed just a tad bit lazy compared to later games in the series. Now, I understand these aren't all the games fault, but I'm trying to be objective here. Also, I only count serious Mario games, not blatant money-grabs like Mario Teaches Typing and other such crap.
