I got the latest “flagship” Mario game, Mario Odyssey. It’s a 3D game, which I don’t like as much as the 2D Mario games. (What convinced me to get a Wii back in the day is that they had made a whole new 2D Mario game for it.) I thought it might have just been nostalgia, but they play so differently. 3D Mario games are about exploration and collecting things — you can just wander aimlessly around without being in danger in many places. But 2D Mario is about precision, timing, and speed. It’s such a vastly different play style that it almost feels wrong to call these new games Mario games.
