Mario 64 is a really weird game in that the physics are way TOO good, ultimately trumping the level design but it's THAT element, which I've never seen any solid indication was even intentional, that makes it so beloved.

This is the biggest problem I have with Banjo-Kazooie in comparison. It just doesn't feel nearly as good to play. Banjo moves slower, most of his jumps are weak, and most of the interesting moves are locked and limited.

The interesting aspect of B-K is being able to switch between Banjo and Kazooie, particularly using Kazooie's feet to run which makes the gameplay faster, and is required in many platforming sections, but yeah, none of these platformers can be compared to SM64's controls. They just nailed some genuinely amazing physics and controls for Mario 64, to this day is still a joy to play.
One of my favorite 3D platformers is Mystical Ninja starring Goemon, it's fun as fuck but even that game doesn't compare to the controls in SM64. The way you can maneuver Mario, the triple jump (which was laid out before, in DK '94, in 2D form), the way you can make Mario have a small stop pressing the Z trigger, then do a long jump afterwards, the reverse jump (B-K also did this but as you mentioned, it's much slower and doesn't really carry the same weight and momentum).

>For some reason I never got the appeal to Galaxy.
Me either actually, I've played the first few hours a few times and just can't get myself past that point. I think a big part of it is I just fundamentally don't like the control scheme of Wii Remote and Nunchuck and wish I could just play a version of the game playable on a GameCube controller or a Switch Pro Controller. If I could play it in a more normal way, I'd probably like it more.

>> No.6050016

>If they had fully grasped the level to which the physics wound be broken would they not have included levels that challenged those exploits?
IMO it's almost better to have gameplay mechanics you don't HAVE to use because it changes the game into more of a sandbox style (which was their intention behind the game). You never have to sideflip in the entire game, but it's satisfying to blaze through levels using it because you're using your skill to do challenges faster than you could have if you have lower skill. Something like that, anyway, not sure if I'm phrasing this correctly. I don't think complex platforming utilizing all of Mario's skills was really what they had in mind when making Super Mario 64. It was more about having many different ways (of various skill levels) to tackle diverse challenges in open areas at your own pace, and having fun with simply controlling Mario and creating your own flow with his movement options.

>> No.6050017

Wii Remote and Nunchuck was the best controller when it wasn't being used for motion control. You can put your hands anywhere

>> No.6050018

>For some reason I never got the appeal to Galaxy.
It's weak. It's way too linear and tries too hard to recreate the magic of SM64 that occured naturally. Nintendo really hit this wall where they went from attempting to improve on an older product to trying to replicate it. Nintendo used to have a lot of fun ideas, now they stick their IP in knockoffs of other games, or even their own games. And people eat it up.

>> No.6050019

I guess I personally just didn't get that about Mario 64 back in the 90s. I didn't know anybody that played it at that level until the YouTube era.

>> No.6050021

I don't like it and much prefer a regular controller. The time I found it acceptable was when a game used a lot of motion controls, then it felt like it had a point behind it. In Galaxy, all you ever do is shake the Wii Remote to spin and point at the screen to pick up star bits or whatever they are. It doesn't feel like it's enough to justify the abnormal control layout so I get sick of it. Same with Twilight Princess, I got bored with it pretty early on because I just don't like that control scheme.

>> No.6050023

>I didn't know anybody that played it at that level until the YouTube era.
It's not about speedrunning or whatever, it's just about how the game changes and can become more fun based on how skilled the player is.

I disagree. Sonic Adventure was a very good game. The only parts that really bored me was the Knuckles & Big The Cat levels. Other than that, Sonic Adventure was a great transition for Sonic going from 2D to 3D. I have not enjoyed any other 3D platformer since Sonic Adventure. Not even Sonic Adventure 2 matches up.

There were some bits in Galaxy that changed to a motion control minigame, hated that they felt it necessary. I forgot about spinning though - the biggest problem with remote + nunchuck was the lack of buttons. But I liked being able to rest my arms wherever or splay out - there were a few times early on where I was holding the nunchuck at an angle and tilted the joystick the wrong direction but that went away. To each their own but I was massively in love with it.

Because that's not what they had in mind when making the game. Besides, if you want that, there's plenty of rom hacks to try out which have the same gameplay but much harder platforming challenges.
>Could you not play the Wii Twilight Princess with a Gamecube controller? That sucks.
You can't, which makes no sense to me. Although, I have tried playing Twilight Princess on Wii U as well and still got bored and gave up around the same time.

>> No.6056784

The only thing that holds it back is how easy it is, although that's somewhat mitigated by the incredible romhacking scene that seems to have popped up around the game, with difficulty ranging from "a couple notches up from the base game" to "full-on Kaizo mode".

When it comes to core movement and physics, though, I really can't think of a 3D platformer that's done it better. The level design is overall extremely solid as well, and the game definitely has a great aesthetic. It's definitely the best of the 3D Mario games that I've played, and I say that as someone who holds them all in very high regards.

The problem is that the game becomes trivially easy as soon as you actually understand Mario's moveset, without even getting into the actual exploits. I mean, it's not like sideflipping and long jumping are even remotely tough to do. Ultimately, I think the game would've benefited greatly from some late game challenges requiring you to use all the tools at your disposal. Given the structure of the game, it wouldn't have even gotten in the way of the whole "play your own way" design philosophy, since you only need 70 stars to see the end credits.

It's not even close to being a tech demo, it's just an easy game. A tech demo is more like the physics puzzles you'd have to do in Half-Life 2, where the gameplay actually comes to a near complete halt so you can check out the cool new tech that the company had developed.

"Tech Demo" is a pretty generalized insult and I just threw it out there as a comical passing jab. I think you basically agree with me about Mario 64. It's just weird and unique in that I can't think of any other game before or since where the physics consumed like 80%+ of the game's development energy and the level design comes across as almost an afterthought comparatively.

When Mario 64 came out, that was even pretty clear to me but because I only played it casually I thought it was more like 50/50 with decent physics and decent level design but overall "unpolished" and that experience with the launch FLAGSHIP colored my entire perception of the N64 for its whole lifespan.

In hindsight, I see that with Mario 64 they were trying to create a core physics engine that they intended to contingency to use in 3D games forever - much like the physics of SMB (prototyped in MB) were revolutionary and defining to the 2D genre. I probably should have said "Mario 64 was a prototype" since that's truer but I went with something I figured more people would have a knee jerk reaction to.

Is a shame that there aren't more games like that, with crazy physics being the entire point. Perhaps eventually someone will come up with something for virtual or augmented reality platforms that's so satisfying it becomes a defining standard but so far not.

64 > Odyssey >= Sunshine > Galaxy 2 > Galaxy 1
both SMS and SMO suffer from relying on overabundance of collectibles and being completely unfun to 100% while the Galaxy games are good and have a great presentation but are a step-down from the style of gameplay used in the other titles

>> No.6062097

Odyssey has some great ideas in it and the worlds are huge and fun to explore. The most pressing issue is that Mario's control scheme is still boring compared to 64, something they've unfortunately never returned to. The hat toss mechanic adds some depth but just isn't the same at all. Mario constantly feels stilted to play as.

The other big thing was what >>6061456 noted, there are too many things to get to 100%. Being rewarded for exploring every nook and cranny is great and there's a lot of cleverly hidden moons but holy fuck, some of them are just downright stupid, and there's a LOT of padded out ones on top of that.

Alright, so here is a thing.
I decided to replay SM64 and actually finish it this time around.
THIS time I also managed to find the damned flying cap course, it somehow eluded me the first time I played the game, but this time I out of curiosity took a look at that light beam from the ceiling in the castle and to my great surprise it was a hidden course with flying cap inside.

And now comes the fun part.
The flying mechanics in this game are fucking exactly how I always end up flying in my dreams. The feel, the controls, everything is pretty much the same. I was flying in my dreams for years, but only now found an accurate representation of that, in a damned game!
How fucking weird is that? Shit feels almost surreal to me.
And that got me thinking, why? Why the way you fly in that game and the way I fly in my dreams are so fucking similar to one another, without me having a prior contact with that kind of flying mechanic to boot?
Are SM64 wing cap flying mechanics so instinctual that they mimic a way that sleeping mind parses flight?
Or were they intentionally made the way to mimic that feel?

>> No.6063673

This. I never played a Mario game since 64. I'm assuming Galaxy is cool, but Sunshine definitely looked skippable.

>were they intentionally made the way to mimic that feel?
Wouldn't surprise me. Since nobody actually flies around like that, it seems natural to consider how it feels in dreams or your imagination. I got the same feeling from it.

Nobody gave a fuck about exploiting the physics engine to break the game in 1996, you little foggy-brained zoomer. That's an irrelevant consideration to anybody except mentally ill speedrunners.

The camera, while good for its time, is positively horrendous by modern standards. The only people who feel otherwise are the people who haven't touched SM64 since they were kids, or who play it so much that they've gotten used to how awful it is.

Mario controls are still excellent but the levels and stars are boring. They should have made a second game with the same engine that's actually challenging.

It's pretty much just people who really like a game finding more stuff to do with that game and pushing it to its furthest limits. You may call this autistic, and I wouldn't disagree with you, but I don't see a problem with it.
