    Inspired: Eggman affectionately patting his metal son in the Mario & Sonic games.

    That moment when you realize Rolf from Ed Edd n Eddy saying "You need to eat more fiber" to Double D is a family friendly way of him saying "You're full of shit".

    I feel like the point of silent protagonists is to keep their personality vague enough for the player to kinda project anything they want onto them.
    ...But Mario isn't like that. He has a defined - if simple - personality, and in some games (Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Fortune Street, etc.) gets full-fledged dialogue beyond simple grunts and catchphrases.
    So I honestly wouldn't mind if they let him talk more.

    One thing I think is a shame about NSMBU is how Bowser basically takes over Peach's Castle and just throws Mario and his friends is away, but it never amounts to much because he basically throws them from one grassy field to another one and by the end of the game, the castle is just another lava world/Bowser Castle, but with Peach's place as a backdrop.
    I think it would've been a pretty neat twist if you started out in a pretty easy Lava world and had to work your way back home, with a tough, endgame-worthy, but still happy and harmless looking Grassy final world. Put the concept on its head a little. Maybe make the desert the second to last level and finally make a freaking DESERT the tough environment we know it as instead of early game fodder. Things like that. 
    Of course, wholly unique environments would be even more of a plus, but if we're gonna stick to the typical tropes, this would've been a pretty fun way to at least shake it up somewhat.

    I don't hate 3D Sonic, just the boost formula.
    If we got another Sonic Adventure I'd be hyped as heck, but Iizuka's outright said they're never making another Adventure again.
    I mean, he could change his mind or get replaced by someone with a different philosophy when he retires, but for the foreseeable future, the specific type of 3D Sonic I actually like is off the table.

    TOK seems to consider the pre-SS games canon and part of the same universe, with actual acknowledgment of Peach's appearances in those games.

    Maybe there's still hope for more nods to the unique characters from those games.

    I've heard, "Well, go play EarthBound or Undertale or any number of quirky-but-still-serious RPGs" but like, here's the thing. I love those games, but they're very finite. 

    The Mario RPGs filled a specific niche by being part of a loose ongoing serial franchise, so they were something I could have conceivably enjoyed for my whole life if they'd stayed the way they were.
    Pretty much everything else that's tonally similar to the old Mario RPGs - hitting that great mix of funny but still really heartfelt - is either a one-off or part of a decidedly limited series. Which is fine, but I just wish there was some other long-running series that had the same general vibe. 
    Sorry for posting so much about Paper Mario, I'm just in a mood.

    You see the problem with the state of the Mario RPGs is irritating because you'd think after the success and praise with Odyssey for being creative they would actually give more creative freedom with the rest of the Mario spinoffs. Aces was a step in the right direction but idk.

    I think it just stings that a lot of the aspects I liked about Mario - like uniquely designed/named Toads and members of the various enemy species - have probably been soft-retconned out existence.
    Yeah yeah, "lol Mario canon." But I got a lot of enjoyment out of the diverse and interesting world of this series and I hate how comparably limited it is now compared to how it used to be.
    It's not just that I miss characters like Goombario or Goombella; It's the sad realization that characters like that are no longer allowed to exist under Mario's current direction. That the creative Mario world I fell in love with is gone and probably isn't coming back, ever.

    Mario Headcanon:

    - "Brooklyn" is a borough of New Donk City.
    - The Mario Bros., while born in the Mushroom Kingdom, eventually moved to the Metro Kingdom and became plumbers.
    - During their time in New Donk City, Mario befriended and started dating Pauline. At some point, the events of Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and arcade Mario Bros. all happen.
    - Eventually, Mario and Pauline break it off, and the Bros. hear a distress signal coming from their childhood home of the Mushroom Kingdom. They rush back to it just in time to see Bowser kidnapping Peach, and the events of SMB1 play out as expected.
     
    This reconciles the current Nintendo canon with the old "Mario and Luigi are from Brooklyn" backstory.

    I still prefer to think of the Koopalings as Bowser's kids.
    Without the familial relation, they lose a bit of what made them endearing. "Bowser and his team of unrelated slightly-tougher-than-average Koopas" just isn't as cool as "Bowser and his family."
    (I'm also fine with Bowser Jr.; all eight of them can be Bowser's family, it's fine.)

    Y'know, in SatAM the robots Robotnik builds himself are treated pretty okay compared to the roboticized citizens.
    They have a little bar where they hang out, drink what's presumably motor oil, arm-wrestle, and listen to music in their off time. It feels uncharacteristically nice of this version of Robotnik to give his minions a sort of robot rec room to just have fun in.
