Native demo - Atari Jaguar!!!

JWK, how do you explain why New Super Mario Bros. Wii sold 10 million more copies than both Mario Galaxies (3d) combined? Or that New Super Mario Bros. U sold more than Super Mario 3d land if 3d is more popular?

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

I forgot to mention, New Super Mario Bros. U sold more copies than Super Mario 3d World. Again, no one can properly answer why, if 3d is more popular.

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

Banjo, you conveniently left out New Super Mario Bros. Wii, which sold 28 million copies and is the 4th best selling Wii title. Lets compare that to Mario Galaxy, which we all know was the first 3d Mario game for the Wii. That only sold 12 million. Mario Galaxy 2? Only sold 6 million. That's 18 mill...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

First off, New Super Mario Bros. U (that's a mouthful) is the 3rd best selling Wii U game, and not far behind the top seller, Mario Kart 8. The fact I, there was never proof that 2d experienced a steep decline in popularity, it was just eliminated. There weren't any big budget Contra type games or S...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

Now if someone were to say, they wanted to focus on 3d, that would make more sense. But, at the end of the day, and after all the arguing (and personal insults thrown my way), I just want this 2d technology I'm talking about to see the light of day. I still have hope somehow that there could be...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

I grew up on the NES and was in my early teens in the mid 90s. I was extremely excited for 3d as well, but it wasn't until late 1995 that the PS1 came out. But, I can't fathom you guys' assertion that the public was sick of 2d from then until 2006, when we were all of a sudden ready for a new Mario ...

The Derailment of the 3d Genre

That's why I feel like early 3d games like Hover Strike 3d, Skyhammer, I-War, Starfighter, etc. are really kind of significant because those are part of the early 3d movement that got subsequently destroyed. While the quality of those games varies greatly, they are noteworthy in that regard.

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

Fair enough. <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">If all these companies cared about money, as all of you guys claim, why wasn't there a singe CONSOLE 2d Super Mario game starring Mario from 1991-2006</span></strong>, when every single one had been a top 5 system seller, ...

The Derailment of the 3d Genre

It's hard to explain, Sony's and Microsoft's system just have this overly digitized look that emphasizes dark colors. It's not pure. It's fine is you like war games in which the atmosphere looks like a wasteland. The Dreamcast has blurry 2d graphics, sort of like the N64. And since it's been seen as...
