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.
