Mario Galaxy game of the year?

Mario Galaxy game of the year?

Super Mario Galaxy was released a few days ago in the US, and it's really been setting the critics on fire (not literally). So far it's the most acclaimed game of the year, according to Metacritics.

Metacritics is a site that aggregates review scores from well known sources online as well as print magazines. Galaxy currently has a whopping Metascore of 98, beating down the likes of The Orange Box (96), Bioshock (96) and Halo 3 (94). This definitely puts it in contention for "Game of the Year", possibly even "Best game Ev4r".

Great. SMG really deserves game of the year. But, Wii's World don't get ahead of yourself. Are you actually saying Galaxy is better than Brawl? C'mon.

The critics don't lie. Oh, wow it smells like a burnt 360, better cool it down before it flashes red! My friends say the Wii is crap but yeah check the numbers. Better than the best on 360. The end all be all. Mario is back and he's ready to beat some Master Chief ASS.

Yeah, this game truly is great. Much, much better than Sunshine and Halo 3, and I'm glad to have bought it.

Hah, that's good to know. But really, Bioshock above Halo 3? Sigh. Looks like grotesque games are largely accepted these days. I really don't get the whole "YAY GORE" thing. I may even pick up Super Mario Galaxy. That would be my second Mario game ever, and Super Paper Mario was pretty good. Twas fun. No real replay value though.

I just got this game yesterday. All I have to say is that it's the BEST game on Wii! (so far).

Yeah, I got this game. It's awesome. I played until 12am on the first day, 2am the second day, and 2am last night. It's the best game ever made.

It only shows the bioshock etc reviews are inflated by anti-Nintendo pro-Microsoft Americans. There's no way on earth those games innovate or play anything like a Mario masterpiece. It makes review scores pointless as they're clearly being abused by "idiot fanboys". Long load times, outdated controls and patch download requirements should be point deduction areas of reviews. The fact games like bioshock have such issues and dropping frames only shows you can't trust the biased reviewers. Mario runs like silk and is full of innovation, it deserves the score.

Well, from the 40 stars I've collected so far, I think it deserves best game of the year.

While I absolutely love Brawl, I definitely think Galaxy would deserve game of the year. It's just perfect.

"Best game Ev4r" [PS and xBox fanboys crying all over the place].

If Galaxy gets a 98, Brawl gets a 999 infinity.

That's it, I'm getting this after I get Brawl! I can't wait.

Very nice to see that the 360 is getting its power cord handed to it. I can hardly wait to see what Brawl on top of this and Metroid do to the pride of the fanboys of the 360.

I'm going to get the game in two hours!

Anyone who says this game sucks obviously thinks it's just because it isn't about graphics or blood and guns. I mean gosh it deserves game of year. It will beat Ratchet/Clank, Master Chief, and Turoks ass. Hopefully it will be better or as good as Sunshine or 64.

Those poor retards can finally open their eyes and see what a true game is. They actually thought games like mario galaxy were the wii's weak spot. They said that it was not for hardcore gamers, but what do they mean by that - a game with bad words, killing, and nudity? I remember when a hardcore gamer meant playing hard games, or even playing many different types of games.

I love it! I got it the day it came out.

This might be the best game for Wii. But when brawl is coming I bet half the fans of super mario galaxy will stop playing it and play brawl.

The best game ever was Resident Evil 4 in my opinion.

I'll probably get SMG or SSBB once I beat OoT on VC. That's a lot of acronyms.

This is good news, I'm so glad I got the game the day after it came out.

Get this game! Seriously, I'm totally hooked on it, it is better than zelda AND paper mario combined. You will not be let down.

This is weird. One minute, Mario's saving the princess from space, the next minute, they're both beating the heck out of each other in brawl.

This game is wicked-awesome.

Mario sounds older in this game. I bet in brawl, they recorded some of mario's past voices and put it in brawl.

SMG can't be best game ev4r unless it beats brawl.

Brawl will wipe the floor with the rest of the games (and murder Halo 3). Galaxy, though good, would have to take a seat and let its Nintendo brother win.

Hah! Since I pre-ordered, I not only got the best game ever made, I also got an awesome collectors coin with a certificate of authenticity. Yah, boiii.

It's Super Mario 64 all over again. Without the delay.

I own it, and it's an awesome game. But it's pretty short. I beat it in a month.
