This is my first post in this thread. I have been a Switch owner since day one and a huge Nintendo fan my whole life going all the back to the NES. My daughter who is turning 6 is finally getting into video games and she can not get enough of the Switch and all the games we have for it. I blew her mind with all the past consoles that I still have with all the games. She is in heaven right now. Currently her and I are playing Super Mario Odyssey. I purchased Mario Odyssey when it came out almost 3 years ago. I can't believe it has been that long! I will honestly say that I had a good time playing thru it but I was sort of meh throughout the experience. I only got the bare minimum moons that you need and once I beat it I went back for the power cube moons but then life took over and I stopped playing. I believe I had about 200 or so moons. Not sure why the first run thru did not catch me. I was a huge Galaxy fan and hold those two games near to me. I always preach how Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 are the best games ever made so when I played Odyssey and saw that it was a different game it sort of went low on my excitement and love of the game. I picked up Odyssey again about 3 weeks ago when my daughter started playing and picked up right where I left off on my profile. I am currently at around 430 moons. Still have a way to go!
I was sitting on the couch last night playing and it hit me right there. I now understand how great this game is. It is a masterpiece in every way possible. I will still say for me Galaxy is my favorite Mario but can honestly agree Odyssey is a better game and I am going to say one of the best games ever made. My mind has changed on it and I am hooked on trying to 100% this game. I really can not see how Nintendo will top this game but knowing them they will. Excited to see what the future holds for Mario but in the meantime I will enjoy this game and will absolutely say that it is magic and one of if not the best game out there! Just wanted to come into this thread and say that. I am just excited about this game! Carry on.
