That's a good point. Mario has never tried to be Ninja Gaiden or Battletoads. It's aimed at Nintendo's widest market and successfully appeals to just about everyone.

And just FYI, the Speedrunning communities for 64 and Sunshine are VERY active, with multiple catagories (no hover Sunshine, for example).

Yeah point is that you can be super casual about it and have fun or you can dig in and challenge yourself.

So if I don't have a Switch and am on the fence how does this game effect my decision to get one? Keep in mind that I do enjoy Mario games (2d/3d). Thoughts?

The only question is do you want to wait for a price drop to get a Switch. (Or wait and see if a newer, upgraded model comes out). SMO makes getting a Switch worth it, if BOTW wasn't enough.

It probably should not tip you over the fence. I personally would not purchase a console to gather dust for sake of one game. Purchase the Switch when you can list a few exclusive titles you want play. As good as Mario Odyssey is, and it is a very good game, if the other titles do not peak your interest that much, then hold tight until the content on the platform reaches maturity. This is a typical stick or swim conundrum for folks that own a WiiU.

I noticed the game doesn't tell you how many moons you need to collect in each kingdom. So how do you know when you've collected them all??
