Brings back the fun, the way it used to be.
25 November 2017
After the SNES I became more aligned with the PlayStation. I dabbled with the Wii but essentially eschewed Nintendo. I've become increasingly concerned about the direction of games, especially with the mentality that games are now regarded as services and consumers are therefore cash cows, ripe for milking. I started looking at back catalogues of games and took a gamble with a Switch. The one thing that I had forgotten, but thankfully found again, is that Nintendo is all about fun, especially with it's own intellectual property like Super Mario. I've been too damned serious about games for too long, and even more so about collecting PlayStation trophies. This game is fun. Lots of fun. Lots of secrets and lots of collectibles and not a single loot box or micro-transaction to ruin it. My entire family are playing this now.
