What the fuck, Nintendo? No matter how angry we get with your Friend Codes and ceaseless minigame flogging, you manage to make us feel like we're seven years old every time the big homie Mario comes around. As glorious as the original SMG was, the sequel matches it for sheer jaw-dropping game mechanics and level design—and manages to even do it one better by virtue of a much-improved (if still semi-hobbled) co-op experience. If Nintendo ever goes high-def, we're quitting our jobs and spending the rest of our days with kush and Mario.
