Top 10 Reasons Why Super Mario 64 Is Overrated


The Top Ten

1 It Was On the N64

The n64 already is the most overrated console

2 It Had Mario In It

... so? The main problem wiht this game is the camera, but this game is still awesome! - HeavyDonkeyKong

This list sucks! Somebody erase this list! This game is underrated!

3 There Are Better Mario Games

Why are people so nostalgia blinded that they can't see the flaws of this game? There have been unique and amazing Mario games that have come out since then.

I like some Mario games better, but this game is still one of my favorite Mario games! - HeavyDonkeyKong

No, this is the best Mario game ever, unless you are counting Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins.

Galaxy, Sunshine, and even New super mario bros wii (It kills me to say it, though) are all better.

4 Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario more.

Umm, she was nice in this game. - Polygon

In general, peach is a kind hearted woman. Having a ditzy voice doesn't make somebody bad! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Why do people use Princess Peach as a reasons to call a game overrated? She's nice and generous in both modern Mario and class Mario! You're saying she should be grounded for being kidnapeed?!? IT'S NOT PRINCESS PEACH'S FAULT! - HeavyDonkeyKong

She was generous in CLASSIC Mario, not here. Stop defending this useless character. - KennyRulz244444

Classic Mario > Modern Mario

Ffs victim blaming

5 I Played In My Childhood

Your such a big deal aren't you?

6 It's Extremely Dated

This game has aged horribly.

7 It Was a Big Deal
8 Extremely High Reviews

If it has high reviews then it doesn't't necessarily mean it's overrated. Invalid reason.

I think it deserves thsoe extremely hgih reviews! Just like Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2! - HeavyDonkeyKong

9 The Camera is Awful
10 The Graphics are Unimpressive

The DS version's graphics are unimpressive not just because because of how they're pixelated as something unclear, but they are not very amateurish. The N64's version has very unique, industrious, underrated, 64-bit graphics. If this game is painful for you to visualize, then never visualize SM64 for the N64 (no matter how fervently we all remember it) though. - The Ultimate Daredevil

Ultimate Daredevil, first off, I totally disagree with the fact that super mario 64 have better graphism than DS, especially when we know that the DS is suppose to have inferior graphism and that I still prefer the one of the DS version. Second, do you know that we are supposed to say the reasons why super mario 64 THE ORIGINAL is overrated, not the remake. And lastly, do you really think the ds remake is overrated and if yes do you at least know what the term overrated means? Overrated means that it's praize too much, and seeing how many times the ds remake has been called thrash, I don't think its overrated. In fact, super Mario 64 DS is for me one of the most underrated games of all time and the main reason why I found the original to be overrated!

11 The Music

Let me guess... a My Sweet Passion fan put this here. Super Mario 64 itself is not underrated, but its original/64-bit presentation is criminally underrated, go see WatchMojo's list of "Top 10 Mario Songs" for proof.

12 Nostalgic
13 The Controls are Sensitive
14 The DS Port
