    I wonder when 2D Mario games will get phased out. I mean, it has to happen someday. Right?

    I think that once we get a bit older, we won't have the stamina to allow ourselves to be sucked into games like we used to. (laughs)

    That's when they will start making shorter games right?

    Nintendo was using NSMB Wii as an AP test as well as... They're milking the frigging series.

    They should keep on make Super Mario Bros 2D, and for their '3D' ideas put them in the Super Mario adventure games

    You know if NSMB Wii bombed, this conversation would be "Well, I think it's time for 2-D Mario to rest..."

    Nintendo is just a big money-hungry cow. They only care about profit. Any games that the true Nintendo fans liked that wouldn't appeal to "casual" gamers (Star Fox, F-Zero) are phased out.

    Wait until next gen when Nintendo gets beaten.

    Why should they stop with it, side scrollers can look good. It's not that nobody wants to play side scrollers, because of 3D.

    There'll always be a market for 2d type games. Just look at the castlevania series. [​IMG]

    I just read on Joystiq NSMB Wii sold 2 million already in the US alone.
    Why change a winning team?
