Hi everyone.. When I first bought the wii, i never "knew" mario (and friends) but i knew they were a big name in gaming industry. I bought the wii, and all i can see is a big "hype" around mario games.. Paper mario was cool, but not an amazing game.. when SMG was rlsd, I didnt even bother to update my wii&wiikey for it as im not a huge fan of mario games. But.. when i saw the overwhelming replies (1000's) about SSBB, Ive done it all.. I've bought dl discs, updated to 1.9g, updated firmware, did the 15% trick, all to see, that actually.. brawl is just a rather average (its not bad IMO) fighter, just with differenct characters... most of them means nothing to me.. and even if they did actually ment something to me.. I dont see alot of difference when fighting with pikachu or a big m&m.. For me (and once again, it is JUST MY OPINION) SMG and SSBB are just 2 more for the collection. True, they are far away from being bad, but really, dont think they worth all the hype.. let alone buy a console for those game... so, those are my 2 cents, mario fans, no pun intended, just pointing out my thoughts. I'm sure there are more people thinking like me.
