| Let me just say:
This is the FIRST Mario game that I have REALLY played, and is the FIRST Mario game that I have BEATEN.
Yes it's true. You could say that this is my FIRST Mario game.
I am sorry, but Mario and Mario games hadn't appealed to me until Galaxy; I am mainly intrigued by Fighting Games, SHUMPS, Beat-em-Ups, Conceptual Games, Artistic Games, Games-with-Interesting-Control-Schemes, and Puzzle Games.
Mario didn't fall into any of those categories, nor did Zelda until Wind Waker ((Artistically/Visually Stimulating), and Phantom Hourglass(Artistic, and interesting control scheme)... both are still on my TO-DO list).. but finally, I was intrigued with a Mario game.
GALAXY. That word, in and of itself, is intriguing to me... It exudes Limitless-ness. Infinities. No-boundaries. Those are things I like to hear, and associate with Games...
Previously, I could only think of Mario as the definitive level-progressing platformer with Fire Level, Ice Level, Dark Level, Desert Level, and some nice (and DISTINCT!) music to boot. That was all for me. But the moment that I saw a screen shot of a GALAXY level, comprised totally of spheres-scapes, and floating land masses, I was in awe.
I am so happy to say, that I STILL have that feeling AFTER beating the game... it's truly stunning. The game is absolutely an Artistic and Conceptual Game Design Showcase...
I don't think there was ONE thing I didn't like about it...
Oh, that for the most part it was an Easy game...that was my only "issue".
