One thing about Nintendo games is how timeless they are. I think all the classics will be still enjoyable 10, 20, 30, or even 50 years from now. You can't say that about a lot of games, but Nintendo just has that certain magic about them.

They're not perfect, but I still think they are the greatest developers in the world. They can pull off amazing feats and do the impossible. And to me, Miyamoto is the foundation to why they've been so successfuly.

Super Mario Galaxy. The fact that I won't post any explanation, but no one will complain and I may even get a few thumbs up, is enough said.

well i just ruined that with an explanation. Sad

If I'd have played Bully by now, I'd probably go with that, but I haven't, but it looks like a game form of the British TV series Grange Hill, which is a perfect match for Rockstar and their British roots.

But it was made by Canadians. Still funny as hell.  

For me I guess a Rockstar game would be open world, a game that appealed to men in their 20s' mid 30's. Has some form of movie like narrative, sometimes pilfering things from well known movies. Then it would also have a great sense of humour, be sometimes violent. Probably would have bad 3rd person controls compared to what the best developers are doing. It would have massive hype too.

I just watched the History of Mario games on the Wii Channel with my son (who has now watched it about 30 times), and to take this thread a little bit further I'd say the Star Road and Special levels of Super Mario World are the epitome of Nintendo to me.  Those levels were everything I loved about Mario and Nintendo. Everything just felt right. The level design was amazing.   There was extreme challenge, but never frustration. Even the music just seemed a little more appropriate in those levels.

I just loved that it was a secret bonus. It was like, you've beaten boswer in this fantastic game, now here's a little more.

Speaking of which, I can't unlock most of the star road stuff in NSMB Sad

I see Rockstar as being a British developer regardless of which division makes a game because of their roots and leadership.

The only thing about that game is that the music, while delightful while playing, isn't exactly memorable.ellllicli

What?!

Gusty Garden theme, Bowser's Final battle theme, Good Egg Galaxy, Buoy Base and Bowser Castle theme not memorable?!.

It was the first use of the GTA4 engine, but it didn't just provide a testing ground for the tech, but also for the more serious tone in exposition that was to come with Niko Bellic's tale.

Hey, you spelled Belic wrong! No big deal, so did Rockstar.

I see Rockstar as American, even though R* North are Scottish their GTA games are all about the US.
